We’ve had a busy month curating wine for the Royal Adelaide Wine Show Dozen, so we’ve definitely got our tasting panel’s palates fired up - no surprise then that this pack is ridiculously fantastic! A couple of new additions from Rolf Binder, a few fine Curtis’, Irvine’s Eden Shiraz, a Centurion from Hamilton, Spinifex's Garcon Grenache which we’re currently loving (read, in love with), McLaren Vale heroes d’Arenberg and Zonte’s and a Shiraz from our very own Phil Manser.

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

This month’s tasting paddle is definitely something to write home about. Irvine’s Eden Valley Shiraz was just awarded Best Shiraz at the Barossa Wine Show! It is cool climate glory. Deep purple fruits, cherry and coffee spice shine through new French oak. Cellar for a few years or drink now. Curtis Limited Series Shiraz and Grenache show superb McLaren Vale fruit and are drinking excellently, as is the faithful Cavaliere Cabernet. Centurion, from Richard Hamilton, made by Leconfield’s Paul Gordon is brilliantly concentrated from 124 year old vines. d’Arenberg are well known McLaren Vale producers - the Laughing Magpie is still a benchmark Shiraz Viognier for us and their Cab blend ‘Galvo Garage’ is powerful with black fruit and tannin legs. Give it a wash in the decanter before serving. Zonte’s Lake Doctor Shiraz is all chocolatey goodness, purple and red fruits and some spice. Rolf Binder’s Heysen Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon are the newest additions in the tasting paddle this month, both drinking well right now. Quality fruit from the Barossa Valley, with over 55 years winemaking mojo. We’re loving the Spinifex Garcon Grenache right now with its layered aromatic plush fruits, dark tannin and exceptional balance. Phil Manser, one of our very own, has been busy crafting his own brand of wines from his Adelaide Hills plot. Bright red and blue fruits on the nose, subtle oak treatment and fine tannins. Decant if drinking immediately or hide it in your wine-drobe for 10 years.
