Hesketh Old Vine Barossa Shiraz 2017
This wine from Hesketh Wines is a celebration of old vines - this intense cuvée is crafted from vines with an average age of 50+ years. Fruit was hand picked and open fermented, sitting on skins for 10 days prior to pressing and transfer into French oak. The oak is 40% new, the balance 3 y.o. – ensuring enough high-quality oak is present to season the intense fruit without pulling focus from its glory. A stunner.

This high-end Chardonnay from Tomich Wines has good acid and a mineral line give support to stonefruits, mealy characters, and a suggestion of gently toasted hazelnuts. It's a bloody good wine.

Zilzie Regional Reserve Coonawarra Cabernet 2018
A beautifully mid-weight, gold-winning Coonawarra Cabernet in this wine from Zilzie Wines. Juicy red fruits, mint and blackcurrants create a mouthwatering effect, bolstered as they are by ever so slightly bolshy acidity – the finish buttoned-down primly with fine tannins.

Heirloom Vineyards McLaren Vale Shiraz 2019
Low yields, very careful fruit selection, hands on winemaking with whole bunches and open fermentation and the use of high quality French and Bulgarian oak, have conspired again to produce a stunningly intense McLaren Vale Shiraz from Heirloom Vineyards.
It offers blackberries and cedary oak, great length and deeply intense silken black and blue fruits, anise and chocolate all settling nicely into a really satisfying drink. Super intense, chewy and rich but not overblown. Awesome now and should cellar beautifully. Remarkable value for money.
