Eldredge Blue Chip Shiraz 2013 6x75 15.0%


Price: 108.00

" 94 POINTS (James Hallidays Australian Wine Guide)
A great wine from a great vintage: the colour is dark brick red with purple hues. The aromas are of spicy dark berry fruits with just a hint of toasty vanillan oak. The full-flavoured palate is awash with flavours of plums and black fruits, enhanced by silky fine grain tannins; the finish is rich and smooth. It is drinking beautifully now and will cellar well for a decade.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED - Decanter Magazine Australian Shiraz Tasting
"A strong delivery of sweetly charred American oak with a sweetness that follows through to the palate. It is rich and concentrated and infused with similarly toasty characteristics backed by chunky tannins and a powerful kick of alcohol. Drink 2017-2023"

94 points (James Halliday's Australian Wine Companion)
"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%


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.

Primo Estate Zamberlan Cabernet Sangiovese 2013 14.5%  6x75

Primo Estate Zamberlan Cabernet Sangiovese 2013 14.5% 6x75


Price: 120.00

Quantity:

The 2013 Zamberlan is a rich and complex wine with multiple layers of fruit, spice and subtle oak and a rich, savoury finish.
It is named after Joe's father-in-law, Rinaldo Zamberlan, who first suggested using the Ripasso technique, where newly fermented young Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon juice is pumped over dried grape skins from a previous batch, in this case the skins leftover from Primo's flagship the JOSEPH Moda, for additional fermentation. The juice is then pressed and barrel aged in the very best oak barriques.
The wine has incredibly intense and complex aromas: ripe dark fruits of the forest and a nutmeg spicy lift. Rich chocolate from the Ripasso process is counterbalanced with a maraschino cherry lift from the Sangiovese.
The palate is rich and full bodied with firm tannins and succulent cassis fruit notes over chocolate and tobacco leaf flavours, while the Sangiovese brings a savoury finish with cherry fruit characters.
It has amazing depth and layers of flavour. The 2013 Zamberlan is drinking well now and will improve in the bottle for over a decade.
