Intense nose of deep semi-dried fruit and warm spice. The palate is less fruit forward, offering hints of black fruit alongside savoury spice, herbaceous notes and a brush of chocolate. Held together with wonderfully silken tannins. Very classy.
An excellent example of Clare Valley's bone-dry Riesling style. Crisp and aromatic, with petrol notes signifying this could be nothing other than Riesling! A flinty backbone keeps the wine super-fresh and wonderful citrus and apple notes clean the palate further.
A cracking Cabernet Merlot blend, full of Aussie character. Loads of black fruit on the palate, a little Cassis crunch from the Cabernet and hints of eucalyptus. Gentle tannins make this very drinkable!
Fresh and fruity, the nose is tropical with sweet melon and grassy notes. Crisp on the palate with the Semillon adding a little body, flavours of grapefruit, tropical fruits with a lemon-lime acidity.
Great cool climate Cabernet blend, with notes of violets, blackberries and hints of dark chocolate. Classic Cabernet fruits are balanced by fine tannins and spicy French oak.
Fantastic wine from the Margaret River, this Chardonnay provides a great combination of stone fruit and citrus flavours which are supported by subtle French oak.
Big, bold and full- what more could you ask for from a top quality Margaret River Shiraz. Loads of juicy, spicy, dark berry fruits kept in check by soft, smooth tannins.
A powerful and rich wine with a luscious mouthfeel. This undergoes a cool ferment to protect all the aromatic complexity of this wine. With great pear & jasmine notes and a creamy lees character on the finish.
A stunning cool-climate Sauvignon Blanc full of passionfruit and gooseberry on the nose and palate. The crisp and refreshing flavour profile is beautifully offset by textural complexity from a partial oak fermentation.
Beautiful Estate wine from Kaesler, silky smooth with generous helpings of fruit and earthy undertones that lead to a perfectly structured finish.
Classic Barossa Shiraz with a bit of elegance and class about it. Big and ripe with fruits and spice as you'd expect but a beautiful balance is maintained by silky tannins and a fresh acidity.
Magpie Estates have got this blend spot on, jammy red fruits run through both bouquet and palate with tannins that are present but never overdone. Approachable and great value!
Layers of flavour with fresh acidity of lemon and green melon. Superb mouthfeel with creamy spice from the very well integrated oak, and finish that goes on forever. Serious stuff, this..
The flagship 'Duc from the McIntyre vineyard. Soft mouthfeel with good balance, integration and intensity. Ripe strawberries with a rasp of raspberry and tight vanilla notes. This wine can't stop winning awards.
A bright fruit forward nose with soft vanilla notes. A great Pinot palate of red fruits with a creamy and delicious mothfeel. One of few wines Simon's given a 4/4 to in a trade tasting.
Cool climate shiraz at its best! Ripe plum fruit balanced with clove and black pepper. Medium bodied, combining elegance with depth and concentration.
Punchy on the nose, berries, black cherry and spice with a touch of cigar box as well. Medium-bodied with a silky mouthfeel, creamy red fruit flavours of strawberry, and raspberry give way to light oak.
High quality Shiraz that is wonderfully refined whilst retaining that Aussie charm. Meaty, earthy, spicy notes compete with underlying dark fruits creating a balanced, complex yet immediately enjoyable wine.
