Allow us to prattle on a little more about this...

If we don’t like it, we won’t ask you to drink it. That being said, we’ve had some stunners roll across the tasting bench in recent times of late. Coriole’s Redstone Shiraz is excellent with shiny red and black fruits and leather-bound bookshelf tannins. Leave it an hour and the confection starts to pop with bright fruit flavour. Blue Pyrenees Richardson Shiraz is rich and cool climate. We’ve also got their Richardson Cabernet, which spruiks two golds, a trophy and 95 from Jimmy H. The Hidden Sea Cabernet Shiraz is deliciously fruited under French oak and some subtle green texture from the Limestone Coast cool climate. Not much further up the road is Leconfield, who produce expert Cabernet on Terra Rossa soil. Martins Vineyard are onto something exciting, shouting perfumed blue and black fruits. Rolf Binder’s Heysen Shiraz is Barossa at its best - fine and complex, rich and ripe. Zonte’s Baron von Nemesis Shiraz has a whopping 10 gold medals for its rich chocolate fruit characters - it’s a cracker. d’Arenberg’s Laughing Magpie Shiraz Viognier is one of their flagship drops. With 5 golds and 95 points, it’s rich and chewy, with notes of liquorice, apricots and peppery dark fruit. It’s released with six years on it already, so give it a splash in the jug for love at first sight. From the Clare Valley, Kilikanoon Meymans Shiraz Cabernet is a fantastic fruit dense red designed for cellaring - bold tannins wrapping around bold Shiraz fruit. Curtis Cavaliere is a superb ‘go-to’ for us from McLazza Vazza and a new one for us, Allinda from the Yarra Valley with their better than very good Syrah. It’s tight and medium bodied cool climate with quality French Oak in tow, showing bright red fruits and mulberries.
