    Wines In This Pack
    McLaren Vale, SA
    Gold Medal, 97pts Sam Kim, 94pts James Halliday, 95pts The Real Review, 95pts Bob Campbell
    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!
    4 x Manser 'Block 4' Shiraz 2018 (RRP $55.00)
    Adelaide Hills, SA
    Gold Medal, 96pts Wine Orbit, 95pts Kim Brebach, 94pts James Halliday, 94pts Wine Showcase Magazine, 93pts Huon Hooke
    Perched on top of the Manser vineyard is a. 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 their reserve wine. This release is powerful and packs a punch. 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 backbone of fine, powdery tannins with a long, rich finish. Decant for an hour or two or cellar for up to 10-15 years
    Barossa Valley, SA
    94pts Kim Brebach, 94pts Sam Kim, 92pts James Halliday
    The Lienert’s have been farming in the Barossa for 150 years and decided to add some vines to their property about 20 years ago. The first fruit from 2004 and 2005 vintages went straight to the pool room, aka into Penfold’s St Henri. Funnily enough they then planted a lot more vines and introduced many more clonal variations of Shiraz. When they decided to start making booze, we conspired with them to come up with a wine from the best parcels of their best seven clonal selections of Shiraz. The intention – to make a wine which is floral and beguiling on the nose, densely fruited on the palate, long, complex and bloody awesome. For this very special wine, each clone was harvested and fermented separately (you can see details on the clones below!) with the harvest date chosen to allow each grape to express its best characters. The case of EVOS12 (Eden Valley clone) was harvest earlier than the others to allow for a beautiful perfume and liveliness in the final wine. 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.
    Clare Valley, SA
    95pts Kim Brebach, 95pts Sam Kim
    Intense and velvety black and blue fruit here, along with loose leaf black tea and spices. The acid is fantastic, playing the perfect underscore to the fruit and giving this wine excellent lift and length. Tannins are fine and firm. Superb to drink now and for the next decade.
    Clare Valley, SA
    97 pts Kim Brebach, 95pts Sam Kim
    Meymans vineyard provides the foundation for our Kilikanoon Covenant Shiraz. The fruit in this 2018 vintage is deep, rich, black and voluptuous, the oak controlled and cedary, the tannins fine and plentiful. According to Kim Brebach this vintage is a …’perfect pitch, stunning wine. Already drinking well but the balance suggests it will last for 10 years or more. 97+ points’

    Three exceptional and quite different Shiraz here. First up, midweight, fruit intense 97 point McLaren Shiraz off old vines. Great now and will cellar for 10+ years. Next up, Manser Block 4 Shiraz, a leading contender for best from the Adelaide Hills. This has a gold medal, 96 points from Sam Kim, 95 points from Kim Brebach and 94 points from Halliday. It offers spicy black and blue fruits on the nose with a curious hint of mintiness to boot. The palate is full-bodied, supported by a backbone of fine, powdery tannins and has a long, rich finish. Finally, the Lienert Sieben Klon is floral and beguiling on the nose, densely fruited on the palate, long, complex and bloody awesome. For this very special wine, each clone was harvested and fermented separately with the harvest date chosen to allow each clone to express itself perfectly. Ie, the EVOS12 (Eden Valley clone) was harvested earlier than the others to allow for a beautiful perfume and liveliness in the final wine. 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 these wines and encourage you to give them a rip.

    THE BONUS – Kilikanoon Meyman's Shiraz, the best release of this wine we've seen to date brimming with black and blue fruits and the Shiraz Cabernet - rich, black and voluptuous, the oak controlled and cedary, the tannins fine and plentiful.

    A truly amazing super premium red 14 bottle offering.
