    Wines In This Pack
    Barossa Valley, SA
    95pts James Halliday, 95pts International Wine Challenge, 2 x Gold Medals
    A complex and powerful wine with refinement. Lots going one here from blackberries, spice, anise, dark chocolate and clove. Some red fruits balancing the more generous and sweet black stuff. Plenty of fine tannins to finish. Stunning already and will cellar for eons. James Halliday said of the 2016 vintage (he scored this vintage and the 2016 both 95 points) “… the black fruit flavour is so powerful it makes light work of the alcohol. It has all the packaging attributes, and all the wine signature of wines in the $80-100 price range.”
    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!
    Barossa Valley, SA
    96pts James Halliday, 94pts Wine Showcase Magazine, 95pts Campbell Mattinson, Gold Medal
    A brilliant single vineyard Barossa Shiraz brought to you by the Purple Hands team, made by Grant Burge Chief Winemaker Craig Stansborough from fruit off his own vines. Great colour and depth fruit here with dark chocolate coating raspberries, plum and liquorice. Great intensity and depth.
    McLaren Vale, SA
    97pts James Halliday, 95pts Sam Kim
    97 points from Halliday for this temperate climate Shiraz sourced from an exceptional vineyard in Clarendon. Clarendon is actually part of McLaren Vale and is a little higher above sea level and cooler than the McLaren average. The result is a longer ripening time and the ability to tease higher fruit intensity and purity at a slightly lower alcohol level. This brings balance; critical for enjoyable early drinking, and longevity to the wine. So whilst this is superb already it should still be drinking well in 2050 if stored well. Black cherries, white pepper, blue and black fruits, spice, licorice, and fine-grained tannins mark this as a wine of poise and class.
    McLaren Vale, SA
    Trophy, 5 x Gold Medals, 95pts James Halliday
    This is a complex beast, basket pressed into a mix of older french and American oak where it spent 18 months. It offers an array of bright black fruits, mint, spice and chocolate.
    McLaren Vale, SA
    Trophy, Gold Medal, 96pts James Halliday, 95pts Wine Pilot, 95pts The Real Review
    Young and super tight, this GSM has a long future ahead of it. Drop it in a decanter or vroom it through a vinturi if you are going to drink it now. The good stuff as follows… blue fruits, black tea, cherries, plums, spice, musk, focused acidity and silky tannins. In the bad stuff column… nuttin!
