Tim Adams Cabernet Malbec 2014  14.5%  6x75

Tim Adams Cabernet Malbec 2014 14.5% 6x75

Price: 76.00


94 POINTS (James Halliday's Australian Wine Companion)
"Excellent release. Aflame with personality, regionality and life. It's dusty, curranty, shows elements of gun smoke and gum leaf and swings decisively through the finish. Don't hesitate."

Cabernet Sauvignon has long been recognised as an excellent, consistent variety that performs well in the Clare Valley. The addition of Malbec adds to the complexity of the mid-palate contributing violet, mulberry, added texture and richness, resulting in a full-bodied wine with generous chalky tannins.
Twenty four months in French oak provides depth and balance to this style which is dominated by juicy ripe plum, fresh blackcurrant and oak aromas and flavours.
Feel content cellaring this Cabernet Malbec for at least ten years in good conditions.

Price: 76.00


The Cabernet Sauvignon grapes come from the Azzolino vineyard's 30 year old vines grown on irrigated, clay over loam soils in the Willunga foothills subregion. Some Cabernet fruit also comes from the San Remo vineyard's 20 year old vines grown on loam over limestone soils in the Seaview subregion. A portion of the Shiraz also comes from the Azzolino vineyard as well as the Hillside vineyard which is located in the Sellicks Hill sub region.

Intense mulberry, plum and a hint of eucalyptus are in balance with the rich Shiraz characters. The palate is a smooth blend of the Cabernet tannins coupled with rich cherry and spice from the bolder Shiraz and a smooth lingering finish.

Primo Estate Zamberlan Cabernet Sangiovese 2016  14.5%  6x75

Primo Estate Zamberlan Cabernet Sangiovese 2016 14.5% 6x75

Price: 125.00


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. It is drinking well now and will improve in the bottle for over a decade.

Primo Estate Joseph Moda Amarone 2015 6x75 14.5%

Price: 186.00


Since 1987, Joe Grilli has produced this exotic blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot using the amarone method made famous in Italy. Fruit from the Clarendon vineyard is hung on racks and air-dried prior to crushing, creating a deep, brooding wine with great depth, balance and concentration of flavour.
A regular in the top wines in the Oz Clarke Wine Guide, our experience of older vintages of this wine confirms that this is a sensational wine which fully reward cellaring for up to 15 years.
