You’ll Have a Hard Time Not Keeping These for Yourself!

6 magical reds you’ll be loath to share with others and then disappointed if you don't... they really are that tasty. Four big Shir... with scores ranging from 95 to 97 points. Fruit density, concentration and complexity are all on show in these 4 beautiful wines. One medium bodied old vine Grenache from vines planted back in 1947 that is medium bodied and stunning, with an accent on red fruits and great depth of flavour. One ripped Cabern... yep, we’ve included a bottle of ground-breaking, uber intense Amarone style Cab from Mitolo. Have it now with roast lamb or tuck it away for a decade. This is a pretty easy offering to say yes to. Drink now or cellar? Open by yourself or crack to share? Keep or gift? These are the tough questions we’ll leave you to figure out!

    Wines In This Pack
    McLaren Vale, SA
    97pts Sam Kim, Gold Medal, 94pts James Halliday
    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 Pasha McLaren Vale Shiraz 2018 (RRP $100.00)
    McLaren Vale, SA
    Gold Medal, 96pts Winestate, 95pts Ned Goodwin, 95pts Kim Brebach, 96pts Sam Kim
    This is thrilling! It’s old-school but perfectly balanced. ‘Tis packed with uber ripe, suppurating black fruits, dark cherry, compote, notes of furniture polish and spice, black pepper, chocolate, tobacco, and leather. The richness is tamed with good acidity, providing a backbone for all that expressiveness to hang on to and in so doing, show to best effect. Stunning!
    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.
    McLaren Vale, SA
    93pts Kim Brebach, 92pts Sam Kim, 92pts James Halliday
    From old bush vines planted in 1947. Dry grown, hand pruned and picked, these vines produce exceptionally concentrated fruit. White pepper, kirsch and cherries in a medium bodied yet muscular and fruit intense setting. Plenty of fine tannins to finish. Drink now or cellar for 5-8 years.
    Fleurieu Peninsula, SA
    95pts James Halliday
    Whole berries open fermented and then matured in French oak, 20% of which was new. This is a big and opulent wine, packed with flavour. This opens with a dusting of cocoa powder, is packed to the gunnels with deep, dark, brooding black fruits, and finishes with plenty of cedary goodness.
