So much exceptional wine here... here’s the details on each and every one of them:
Martins Limited Shiraz 2016
97pts Sam Kim, 95pts James Halliday, 94pts Tony Love
Medium to full bodied, this offers exceptional clarity of blue and black fruits … drink any time over the next 10 years.
Kilikanoon Meymans Shiraz 2019
95pts Kim Brebach
The best Meymans Shiraz we have seen so far with expressive blue and black fruit aromas ceding to flavours of black tea and fruits. The acid is fantastic, playing the perfect underscore to the fruits and giving this wine excellent lift and length. Tannins are fine and firm. Superb to drink now and for the next decade.
Lienert Brothers Sieben Klon Shiraz 2019
94pts Sam Kim, 94pts Kim Brebach
The Lienerts have been farming in the Barossa for 150 years and added grapes to the mix about 20 years ago. Their first harvests (2004 and 2005) went straight to the pool room, aka into Penfold’s St Henri. For this very special wine, seven clones were harvested and fermented separately with the harvest date chosen to allow each grape to express its best characters. The EVOS12 (Eden Valley clone) was harvested earlier than the others to allow for a beautiful perfume and liveliness in the final blend. Fermentation is done in tiny open top fermenters which are hand plunged up to four times a day. Certain clones are fermented cooler to better express delicate aromatics whilst some are plunged and pumped over to achieve a more structural element. The trick is finding the right balance. Anyways, we love this wine and encourage you to give it a rip.
Heirloom Alcala Grenache 2019
Trophy, 96pts McLaren Vale Wine Show, 96pts Halliday Wine Challenge (runner up for best Grenache of the year)
Selected from Heirloom’s best McLaren Vale vineyard. We saw musk, cherries, earthiness, black pepper, blackberries and more. A delicious, complete, complex yet playful Grenache and clearly one of Australia’s best… Sumptuous and refined simultaneously!
Curtis Limited Grenache 2018
96pts Sam Kim, 96pts Kim Brebach
A rich and generous yet well-structured Grenache made from 100-year-old vines. Plenty of blue fruits here along with a lick of spice and a touch of cedar. Length and intensity are excellent.
Zilzie Ferghana Shiraz 2019
95pts Kim Brebach
Langhorne Creek, McLaren Vale and Barossa Valley
Lush with deep, rich black fruits, cedar, liquorice, cigar box and plentiful fine tannins! An exceptional premium Shiraz that works wonderfully now with meat and will improve for up to a decade.
