    Viva La Vino Sixer
    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!
    Barossa Valley, SA
    96pts Sam Kim
    An intense blend from the wineries best fruit from a west-facing hillside block in the prized Barossa sub-region of Marananga. A mix of mostly old and some new French and American oak is used here, allowing the oak to appear as a character rather than the plot. Black, more black and blue fruits, chocolate, mineral, liquorice, spice, blueberries, blackberries, cedar, and firm tannins.
    1 x Mitolo Serpico Cabernet 2018 (RRP $89.00)
    McLaren Vale, SA
    96pts Sam Kim, 93pts Wine Advocate
    A groundbreaking Aussie Cabernet in as much as it is made in the Amarone style, with grapes air dried for up to 8 weeks prior to fermentation. It is both concentrated and ethereal with florals and black tea on the nose – the palate awash with chocolate, coffee, cassis, blueberries, herbs, licorice and minerality. Double or triple decant a few hours before drinking.
    1 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
    McLaren Vale, SA
    97pts James Halliday, 95pts Sam Kim
    97 points from Halliday for this temperate climate Shiraz sourced from an exceptional vineyard in Clarendon. Clarendon is actually part of McLaren Vale and is a little higher above sea level and cooler than the McLaren average. The result is a longer ripening time and the ability to tease higher fruit intensity and purity at a slightly lower alcohol level. This brings balance; critical for enjoyable early drinking, and longevity to the wine. So whilst this is superb already it should still be drinking well in 2050 if stored well. Black cherries, white pepper, blue and black fruits, spice, licorice, and fine-grained tannins mark this as a wine of poise and class.
    1 x Kaesler Durif 2016 (RRP $35.00)
    Barossa Valley, SA
    95pts Kim Brebach
    The descriptor ‘Shiraz on steroids’ applies well here. There aren’t too many wines this black or this deep. At first taste you can tell the wine is well structured, yet it seems to have minimal tannin. Keep sipping and you’ll find a zombie army of incredibly fine tannins marching across your palate, building as they travel. Fruit is black, arguably black hole and there are aromas of smoked meats and cold fires. It’s probably time to ignite the charcoal and have yourself a barbie or a wood oven pizza.

    Viva la vino, especially when it is this good… here’s the details on each wine… remember, grab 2 of these six packs and use the code YEOMAN to grab a bonus bottle of Pertaringa’s ‘The Yeoman Shiraz’ 2017, rated 4.8 – the highest rated Aussie Shiraz in Vivino at time of writing…
