Mount Mary Quintet

Australia's premier cool climate Cabernet. It was John Middleton's dream to create such a wine and purchased the Mount Mary property in the Yarra Valley in 1971 to persue this dream. Quintet is his dream realised and is a blend of the classic Bordeaux varieties of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec.

A stylish blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, with a touch of Shiraz and Petit Verdot, from low yielding vineyards have produced another wine of elegance and class. Blackberry, mint and tobacco flavours are framed by fine tannin. The Shiraz adds some supple softness and the Petit Verdot adding aromatic lift. Another triumph!

Jasper Hill Emily's Paddock Shiraz Cabernet Franc

Jasper Hills Emilys Paddock is mostly shiraz - with a defining splash of cabernet franc. A lot has been made over the years of the terroir difference between Jasper Hill Emilys and Georgias, but its the cabernet franc that really differentiates them.

Château Léoville-Las-Cases Saint-Julien

Yarra Yering Dry Red No 2

From some of the earliest plantings of Shiraz in the Yarra Valley with vines dating back to 1969. Shiraz (96%) co-fermented with small parcels of Viognier, Marsanne and Mataro aged 12 to 18 months in 50% new French oak barrels produces a wine that is perfumed and feminine with the tannins and acidity as integral to the wine as the fruit.

Château Clinet Pomerol

Château Clinet is a rising star in the small Right Bank region of Pomerol. With its gravely soil mixed with sand, Château Clinet has gradually increased the Merlot component of the wine to produce a voluptuous, smooth and yet still complex red wine that is both pleasing upon release and turns into a read star with a few years in the cellar.

Château Gruaud Larose Saint-Julien

Château Gruaud-Larose is a classical Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot blend that shows ripe dark cherry fruit, firm tannins and decent acidity. The 2009 vintage has proved to be one of the greatest vintages in living memory and the Gruaud has come along for the ride nicely. Still showing that trademark poise Saint-Julien is famous for, yet with powerful fruit weight and close to immortal length. Notes of licquorice, pencil shavings and blackberry bush that is more akin to more fruit forward appellations. A ripping example from a great vintage.

Château Trottevieille Saint-Émilion

Château Trottevieille is a rare story in the appellation of St-Émilion where a Bordeaux négociant owns the premier grand cru. The property is set apart from most of the vineyards in St-Émilion, on the far eastern edge. The wines of Trottevieille are ones that require a bit of time in the bottle to show their true elegance and blackcurrant richness, but in early drinking years like the 2008, one doesn't have to wait as long.

Brokenwood Cricket Pitch Red

Excellent colour and mid-density. Being 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 29% Shiraz it is more of the classic Aussie blend Cabernet/Shiraz. Lifted dark fruit and cedar notes on the nose. A rich mouthfeel from the McLaren Vale Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. Fine tannins with the oak very much in the background ensuring great drinkability.
