  1. A Sneak Peak at our Secret 2012 Triple Gold Medal Winning Victorian Cabernet

    A Sneak Peak at our Secret 2012 Triple Gold Medal Winning Victorian Cabernet

    We were all pretty excited about this Vic Cab when it first appeared on the tasting bench... we had another quick look at it the other day and it still stacks up... a properly exceptional cool climate Cabernet that at 5 years old tastes like it has only just left the winery. It's black and taut and definitely deserves its three Gold Medals to date. Superb quality French oak on show, along with exceptional depth of fruit - blue and blacks meeting violet, liquorice and fine grained tannins. This is a tight and muscular powerhouse which should be incredible in 10 years time if you've got the will power to tuck some away... Grab yours here now!

  2. A Vertical of Leconfield Coonawarra Cabernet

    A Vertical of Leconfield Coonawarra Cabernet

    The 30th of August every year marks International Cabernet Day and we got seriously lucky this year, picking up 8 different vintages of Leconfield's revered Coonawarra Cabernet to have a squiz at. Matt and Phil stepped through the 2002, 2004, and 2009-2014 and saw quality and refinement improve markedly over the journey. What started as a very good looking lineup finished as absolutely outstanding.

  4. Tim Adams Bayes Block Cabernet - Cab Fabulous

    Tim Adams Bayes Block Cabernet - Cab Fabulous

    I am a fan of Tim Adam’s wine and this tidy little ripper didn't disappoint. Not one of you drinks too much wine, let’s make that clear. Yet, all of you have cracked that over $30 bottle of wine in company that think Peter Lehmann is the coach of the Australian cricket team and Leo Buring is the guy that took that mark in the AFL grand final. Life is too long to spend complaining about that guy that drank 2 glasses of your Leconfield Cabernet with his feedback being ‘i reckon the cask stuff is pretty good eh?’ Enjoy the Tim Adams Bayes Block Cabernet 2011 by yourself, with friends and even with that annoying guy at the BBQ. At under $15, even if you only get half the bottle, you are doing alright. A rich, full bodied wine that is vibrant and deep red in colour. It is full of dark berry, chocolatey goodness. Good length on the palate with taut acid to give it solid structure and balance. Throw a T Bone on the BBQ, poor a glass and enjoy.
