Wirra Wirra Church Block
A much-loved South Aussie red, this blended red is rich in black fruits that fill the mouth. Raspberry, red currant and plum fruits are balanced with fine sandy tannins and cedar oak. This medium to full bodied wine has a lovely balance and style in true Church Block character. Church Block was the first wine the late Greg Trott produced under the Wirra Wirra label back in 1972. He took the name from one of the original vineyards, which runs next to the small Bethany Church (Est 1854) across the road from Wirra Wirras century old ironstone cellars. Over four decades, the Church Block label has become an Australian favourite. Gold Medal | 2016 Sélections Mondiales des Vins Canada Wine Competition.
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.
Château Brane-Cantenac Margaux
Château Brane-Cantenac sits in a prime position on the plateau of Cantenac and makes full use of its excellent terroir. No doubt something that Baron de Brane was aware of and along with his viticultural talents were the reasons behind the estates rise to fame. Now tended by the Lurton family, the wines continue to be in great hands. Of the 2009 vintage, Henri Lurton is known to have said that the winery was enveloped in aromas of raspberry and blackberry even before fermentation began! Even though fruit ripeness is an obvious trait, the balance and structure of the wine are also clearly evident which will see the wine age for a decade or two more.
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.
