Tim Smith Bugalugs Shiraz 2019. This features aromas of blue and black fruit, a hint of spice and a slippery, glossy palate packed with flavour. It’s Barossa to its core. But there’s freshness here too, a cherry pip acidity and some peppery, earthy characters through the finish.
Kerrigan + Berry Shiraz 2015 is dense and dark,almost black in colour indicating great fruit ripeness and intensity.The nose is brooding, with dark cherry and chocolate aromas.The palate is immense with ripe and fleshy fruit flavours and firm structural tannin.
Marq DNA Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 Lifted aroma of blueberry, black currant and chocolate mint with hints of cedary oak and signature Margaret River tomato leaf.
A full bodied wine with a rich juicy palate and abundant fine velvety tannins. It has intense red and black fruits with a background of tasty oak and hints of black jub and mocha.
Flametree SRS Wallcliffe Syrah 2016. This unashamedly medium bodied Syrah styled Shiraz shows lovely lifted spice, clove, orange peel, liquorice, plum, blackberry and earthy notes. The palate displays a wonderful core of elegant blue/black fruits, spice and fine tannins. The lifted fruits are supported by a nice core of oak and stalk tannin. Drinking well at the moment the wine will develop added complexity over the next 6 months and then age for up to 10 years.
Mr Barval Cabernet Merlot 2017 A restrained yet complex nose displaying a wonderful mix of cassis, black berry, currant, and plum, hints of spicey oak and a typically delicate Margaret River savoury dried kelp note. Medium to full bodied with plenty of acid to lift the palate and balance the autumn fruit bowl of dark and red berries and fruits. The youthful tannins are nutty, fine and dry and complete the well structured palate to perfection. This wine is already showing great depth and complexity in youth and I feel it has great potential to age and develop for at least 15 years.
Padrillos Malbec 2018. The Padrillos Malbec from Ernesto Catena shows lovely aromas of violets with dark fruits that fill the nose. The palate is soft, as toasty oak wraps around dark fruits with a hint of chocolate.
Eldorado Road Quasimodo 2016. 47% Nero d’Avola / 38% Shiraz / 15% Durif
To understand Quasimodo you must venture beyond the surface and explore the inner soul. As individual varietal wines they can struggle for love but when blended together they can sing, shine and bring harmony.
Quasimodo is a unique Australian blend of Nero d’Avola, Shiraz & Durif sourced from the regions of Eldorado and Rutherglen. It’s an amalgam of flavour and colour culminating in a complex rewarding wine.
Brought together from many different ferments with a goal of creating an affable blend built on the of layers flavours these three distinct varieties bring. Nero d’Avola is grown in our home vineyard and brings the vitality and bright red fruits. The Shiraz comes from a vineyard a short 5 minute drive down a dirt track from our winery perched amongst the boulders of a granite outcrop. This is a painfully low cropping vineyard resulting depth of flavour not attainable from higher yielding vineyards, this component fleshes out the mid palate. The final piece in the puzzle is Rutherglen Durif, dark and brooding the addition of just 15% gives the wine backbone and a subtle lick of tannin through the back palate without overpowering this medium bodied blend. Lightly filtered then bottled August 2017.
Milcrest Syrah 2012. A single vineyard Syrah, grown on a North-facing, sun-drenched site and picked at optimum ripeness. It has Northern Rhone characters of white pepper and dried herbs, combined with a lovely fruit richness and generous oak character through extended barrel ageing.
KT Churinga Shiraz 2013. The Churinga vineyard shiraz was first planted in 1954 and this wine was lovingly created from dry grown vines planted on rich loam and slate soil, which contributes to its fine tannin structure and vibrant fruit. In the creation I’ve adopted traditional techniques of open fermentation and basket pressing. Hand picked fruit was carefully selected and fermented naturally on skins with approx 30% whole bunch fruit and a small amount of cofermented Riesling as a natural acid addition. Gentle hand plunging of the ferment and minimal working has produced a shiraz with rich fruit concentration and finely grained velvet tannins. Basket pressed, the wine was matured in 100% French oak and a mix of 3 and 4 year old French oak barriques to ensure that the fruit is the defining feature.
Accordini Amarone della Valpolicella 2013. Intense red ruby colour with garnet shades, elegant bouquet with black cherry hints, very mature fruits and spices. It’s a wine with great structure and complexity, but still smooth and elegant.
The fruit was hand-picked, 100% de-stemmed and mechanically berry-sorted, with only 50% of that crushed. 5 day cold soak at approximately 10 degrees. The wild fermentation is encouraged as the tank is warmed to approximately 20 degrees. We only plunge during the fermentation. No pressings are used. We drain off the wine to barrel and keep it on yeast lees for the entire 10 months of maturation, using only our best 1 and 2 year-old French oak. Individual barrels are chosen that display the pedigree of the deep sand, with intense fragrance juxtaposed with intense fruit expression and gritty long tannin structure. Not Fined. Bottled February 2015. Certified Biodynamic.
