Reds

Red wine – we like it, you like it. Sometimes it’s really red, sometimes it’s less red. Sometimes it’s Barossa Valley Shiraz, sometimes Coonawarra Cabernet or McLaren Vale Grenache. New world, old world, weird and wonderful, traditional and cutting edge – if it’s red and it passed the Tasting Panel’s approval, it’s here.

  • Blue Pyrenees Richardson Shiraz 2014

    With vineyard sites and microclimates established by French brand Remy Martin in the 60s, Blue Pyrenees know how to make wine. Berries blue and black dominate on the nose. Purple and red fruits folded into forest floor notes appear on the palate alongside mild oak treatment and complex tannins. A really classy drop that could age for another 5-10...

  • Conte Di Campiano Squinzano Riserva 2013

    Matt stumbled across Conte di Campiano during his visit to Prowein last year and found the wonderfully complex and full-bodied wines. This Squinzano Riserva is made from 100% Negroamaro. On opening, this is a closed but clearly very powerful wine, as it opens, citrus, pepper and Christmas spices emerge along with dark fruits and savoury complexities. This is a big wine that gets better the longer...

  • Conte Di Campiano Susumaniello 2015

    Matt stumbled across Conte di Campiano during his visit to Prowein last year and found this wonderfully decadent, full bodied, plush and complex beast made from one of the world’s rarest varieties – Susumaniello. The word itself comes from Susu meaning “Go” and Maniello, meaning “Donkey” perhaps because in their youth, Susumaniello vines produce massive yields. As the vines age, the...

  • Manser Block 4 Shiraz 2016

    Perched on top of the Manser vineyard is small, productive four acres of shiraz planted on rich, red soil enjoying full sun during the growing season. These vines produce rich, ripe, black fruit with intense flavour forming the majority of this reserve wine. There’s spicy black and blue fruits on the nose with a curious hint of mintiness to boot. The palate is full bodied supported by a...

  • Monterra Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

    Genius Cabernet this. We opened a bottle at a recent masterclass and it was the clear winner among close to 30 high end wines opened on the day. It’s plush and intense, glorious now and yet with more than a decade ahead of it. Black fruits, blue fruits, pepper, cedar and fine French oak tannins....

  • Mr. Riggs 'Burnt Block' Shiraz 2016

    This is the wine formerly know as Scarce Earth. The Scarce Earth program has (perhaps temporarily) been suspended… hence the new name and livery. Fruit, as always comes from Ben Riggs Piebald Gully vineyard in McLarenvale, specifically from the ‘burnt block’. The block comprises Maslin sand. This is a vibrant wine, combining power with lifted, bright blue and black fruits. There’s...

  • Pirramimma Ironstone Grenache Shiraz Mourvedre 2016

    Deep and dense with a compote character. We saw dark plums, nutmeg, blackberries, mulberries and a swish of cocoa powder. Immensely smashable right now but will improve with...

  • Pirramimma Ironstone Malbec 2015

    Twenty percent barrel ferment in new French oak meets eighty percent matured in old French and American oak here, allowing the primary fruit to shout loudest in what is a complex chorus. There’s cherries, violets rhubarb and a certain brambliness. Plenty of silky tannins and a lovely cedary note too. Varietal, chewy, dense and...
