Primo Estate Joseph Angel Gully Shiraz  2015 14.5%  6x75

Primo Estate Joseph Angel Gully Shiraz 2015 14.5% 6x75


Price: 198.00

"95 points. Deep colour; a deliciously savoury, spicy shiraz that stamps its authority and makes its mark from the word go, with the sort of structural integrity more often associated with cabernet than shiraz. The tannins are firm, but ripe and balanced, and entirely in keeping with the overall wine. Will be very long-lived. (James Halliday's Australian Wine Companion
A fabulous single vineyard Shiraz from the Grilli family's Angel Gully vineyard in the McLaren Vale subregion of Clarendon , which produces just one tonne per acre . The Shiraz is hand selected so that only the very best fruit is chosen for this, their flagship Shiraz. A small portion of fruit was air dried (as per the Joseph Moda) to provide an additional degree of complexity.
The wine has an intense bouquet of complex dark red fruits with spicy peppery notes. Concentrated, blueberries and cream flavours swarm around the palate - very juicy but elegant and vibrant. The finish silky rich, with great structure, fine tannins and good length.
It will cellar well for at least a decade from vintage.
Primo Estate’s vineyard in the McLaren Vale subregion of Clarendon is rocky and steep with predominately shale stone soil. The site rises sharply to 300 metres above sea level. The soil and altitude, combined with an intense viticulture regime results in a small crop of evenly ripened fruit, just one tonne per acre. Angel Gully Shiraz is hand selected from a single block of low yielding vines at the pinnacle of the vineyard. A small portion of fruit was air dried to provide an additional degree of complexity.

"Deep crimson-purple; includes some malbec and shiraz; matured in a mix of French and American oak. The quality of the vintage shines through this medium to full-bodied cabernet, filling the palate with black fruits and berries, relegating tannins to a back seat role, the oak likewise.."
Another great Cabernet from Leigh Eldredge's high-altitude vineyard.
Colour is dark brick red with magenta hues. Bouquet of dark berry fruits with a hint of smokiness and spice.
Promises offered by colour and aroma are delivered with great depth and length of fruit flavours with a spice accent that is followed by fine grain tannins and a clean finish.

Tim Adams Clare Valley Shiraz 2014  6x75  14.05%

Tim Adams Clare Valley Shiraz 2014 6x75 14.05%


Price: 72.00

Quantity:

This is arguably the best vintage of this wine for some time, certainly since 2010 and probably longer. . It's a wonderful Australian red, ready to drink now and one that will improve in the bottle for more than a decade (that is, if you've more patience than me!) It's rich and full-bodied, with all the classic blackberry / mulberry / violet aromas and flavours typical of Tim Adams' Shiraz and a long, lingering finish.
