Vasse Felix Heytesbury Cabernets
From Margaret River's pioneering vineyard planted by Tom Cullity in 1967; this classic Bordeaux is a powerhouse of dark berries and cassis with hints of orange, savoury spice and chocolate; outstanding vintage, real cellaring potential.
Yalumba Signature Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz
Almost blood red, this is a Cabernet Sauvignon & Shiraz in motion, changing and shifting from red scents of currants and cranberries to the black fruits of plum compote and black cherries, before a touch of cedar, leafy herbs and powdery black spices freshen the finish. The wine has a coolness that belies its power. The expression is as restrained as it is muscular. Richly layered, the fruit completes the structure. Underneath theres an umami earthiness, like scents of camping in the woods. Impeccably balanced. Savour with a rosemary pepper beef rib roast with porcini jus.
Henschke Abbotts Prayer
Bright crimson with ruby hues. Sweet, fragrant aromas of red and blue fruits, cherries and raspberries with hints of dried flowers, herbs, spices and cedar. The medium-weight palate is beautifully structured with rich, juicy red fruit flavours and powerful fine-grained tannins for an excellent length and and lipsmacking acidity.
Petaluma Coonawarra Cabernet Merlot
Typically elegant Coonawarra Cabernet Merlot in style, the Shiraz adds a lovely sweet supple middle and the Petit Verdot a floral aromatic lift. Medium colour density with soft, sandy abundant tannin, the current Petaluma Coonawarra will sit happily with the best vintages from Coonawarra. While a lovely, complex fruit driven wine now, the vintage will age very gracefully if cellared carefully. James Halliday writes; Pure cassis bouquet, highlighted by cigar box and a suggestion of florals; elegantly structured with ample levels of sweet red fruit and quite slippery tannins to conclude; certainly a sleeper and a very good example from the vintage. Cabernet Sauvignon/ Merlot/ Shiraz/ Petit Verdot. - 94 Points.
Mollydooker Enchanted Path Shiraz Cab
Dark opaque purple with ruby hue, this is a very powerful blend combining Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon creating a wine with immense fruit weight and uninhibited length. Varietal Cabernet notes dance among the vibrant fruit profile of the Shiraz presenting blackberry fruit, cassis, lifted anise spice with underlying plum jam and tar. The palate offers a rich explosion of fruit, toasty oak, cedar notes, and layers of spice, with fine grain tannins and endless length.
Wolf Blass Heritage Release Shiraz Cab
A restrained, intricate blend with an elegant, concentrated palate layered with a complex meld of flavours. A seamless structure, silky texture and lingering finish are focused by fine tannins and perfectly balanced acidity. With 7 Gold medals and a Trophy, this wine has wowed judges around the world. Similarly our team at Vintage Cellars believe this is one of the best value wines to pass our tasting bench in a very long time.
Ch Gloria St Julien
'There have been many great Glorias over the years as this property consistently over-performs. The 2009 may be the finest yet produced. Loaded with notes of Christmas fruitcake intermixed with red and black currants, licorice, spice box, and blackberries, this inky/purple-colored wine is atypically full-bodied with a viscous texture, and loads of tannin, extract, and richness. Deep and layered, it will offer thrilling sipping over the next 25+ years.' - Robert Parker, Wine Advocate, April 2010.
Jacob's Creek Johann Shiraz Cabernet
A Bouquet of Rich and complex, showing a harmonious blend of ripe blackberry and plum with liquorice characters from Shiraz, and refined cassis Cabernet Sauvignon, supported by cedary vanilla oak. The palate is intense, with layers of concentrated stylish fruit seamlessly integrated with the finest oak; full bodied in structure with ripe yet fine soft tannins, carrying the fruit to a long, rounded finish.

Ch d'Issan Margaux
Real density of fruit with impressive length on the finish. Tannins are plentiful but are fine-grained so do not appear austere or aggressive. One of the real finds in the Margaux appellation. 'Only 57% of the production made it into the 2011 dIssan, which tips the scales at a lofty 13.2% natural alcohol. A blend of 69% Cabernet Sauvignon and 31% Merlot, it possesses a dark ruby/purple color as well as a classic Margaux perfume of sweet blueberries, black currants, spring flowers and licorice. Ripe and deep with impressive intensity, it is one of the stars of the 2011 vintage. The wines silky tannins, fresh acids and stunning length suggest it will drink well for 15- 20 years.' - 93 Points | Robert Parker, Wine Advocate, April 2012.
