Wines In This Pack
1 x Martins Vineyard Limited McLaren Vale Shiraz 2018 (RRP $150.00)
McLaren Vale, SA
97pts Sam Kim, Gold Medal, 94pts James Halliday
This is unequivocally an even better edition of the Martin’s than we have seen previously, which is perhaps no surprise given it is a product of the 2018 vintage. Again, we see relatively low alcohol for a big Aussie red which, perhaps counterintuitively, allows the wine to appear as more fruit dense and concentrated than it might if it were half a degree or a full degree more ‘potent’. Fruits are blacks and blues, depth and length are superb, cedar and vanilla are a perfumed accompaniment to the fruit rich nose, and the tannins, polished, waxy and plentiful. The overall package, outstanding!
2 x Finniss River Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 (RRP $25.00)
2 x Zilzie Ferghana Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 (RRP $50.00)
2 x Zilzie Regional Reserve Barossa Shiraz 2018 (RRP $22.00)
2 x Farmer’s Leap Shiraz 2017 (RRP $25.00)
Gold Medal, 93pts Sam Kim
It’s nice to get your hands on a quality Shiraz with the cellaring already sorted. Feels a bit like having someone else sort your inbox while you play video games or work on your quilting game. This robust and black-fruited Shiraz is hitting its straps now at 4 years of age and still has a good few more years in it. There’s plenty of dense black and blue fruits, spice and cedary oak finished with plenty of fine tannins.
2 x Nugan Estate Alfredo Passo Appassimento Shiraz 2016 (RRP $19.00)
90pts Sam Kim
This is a Shiraz made in the Appassimento style made famous by the Amarone wines of Valpollicella. Essentially, high quality fruit is picked and then air dried before fermentation, building concentration, colour, smoothness and richness. This one is excellent, juicy, rich with an incredibly smooth palate and great depth of flavour. There are blue and black fruits, pudding spices, plenty of acid and fine tannins.
2 x Wits End Atlas Shiraz 2019 (RRP $20.00)
91pts Kim Brebach
An aromatic Shiraz with bright red and blue fruits, spice and lip-smacking acidity. This is dangerously easy to drink and finishes with enough tannins to bring it into balance and give the wine length. Perfect with a feed of pasta topped with meaty ragu, pizza or tapas.
