Produced from vines that are up to 80-years-old and now organic, this concentrated wood-aged wine is perfumed, rich and firmly structured. Dark tannins line the wine supporting the black plum and cherry fruits and acidity. Richard Rottiers, new on the scene in 2007, created a cru that is going to be a very fine wine. Drink from 2018.

Ridge Of Tears Shiraz 2017
An elegant Shiraz from Peter Logan’s Ridge of Tears range, the wine has perfumed berry and provence herb aromas of rosemary, thyme and fennel with a touch of white pepper. Smooth and velvety with a soft finish.
The same old thing. There’s plenty of that. Why make more?
When I started out, I wanted to make wine that I liked to drink. I wanted to excite me, not cater to a demographic. So against lots of strong opinions (including within my family) I began deviating from the usual winemaker script. Different to what we were taught at wine college. Different to what the establishment was doing.
I chose the then unfamiliar NSW Central Ranges as my base, planted Tempranillo, made Pinot Gris when few did, made Gewürztraminer (people still don’t), created whimsical labels and stories, fermented white grapes on their skins, used large barrel oak, wild yeasts, and now sell wine in kegs!
And our modern cellar door looks out to the world, not inward. I’d guess it’s that mindset that has allowed this small independent winemaker to still be excited to do the same old thing for 24 years.
Tim Smith Mataro Grenache Shiraz 2021 Discovering more old vine mataro and grenache in the ‘gardens’ of Tim Smith’s Barossa growers, provides him the perfect opportunity to craft a blend that is quite aromatic and in the ‘Rhone Style’ that he loves. Retaining all the plush palate weight is the hallmark of this wine, which is always purposefully mataro dominant. This allows the mataro fruit, which has a similar tannin structure as shiraz, to be ready to drink upon release as well as having some serious cellaring potential.
Minnow Creek The Black Minnow Sangiovese Cabernet 2018 Showing a generous entry of bright red fruits leading to an intense burst of deep vibrant dark cherry fruits with a touch of typical savouriness from the Sangiovese. The mid palate shows a rich complexity of red and black fruits derived from the Cabernet component.The back palate combines an intense array of vibrant complex berry flavours and allspice finishing with a delightful fine tannin structure of great length.
Marq DNA Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 Lifted aroma of blueberry, black currant and chocolate mint with hints of cedary oak and signature Margaret River tomato leaf.
A full bodied wine with a rich juicy palate and abundant fine velvety tannins. It has intense red and black fruits with a background of tasty oak and hints of black jub and mocha.
Mr Barval Cabernet Merlot 2017 A restrained yet complex nose displaying a wonderful mix of cassis, black berry, currant, and plum, hints of spicey oak and a typically delicate Margaret River savoury dried kelp note. Medium to full bodied with plenty of acid to lift the palate and balance the autumn fruit bowl of dark and red berries and fruits. The youthful tannins are nutty, fine and dry and complete the well structured palate to perfection. This wine is already showing great depth and complexity in youth and I feel it has great potential to age and develop for at least 15 years.
Domaine Naturaliste Discovery Syrah 2020
Aromas of juicy black cherries and boysenberries with a grind of black pepper. The palate possesses a fine grained texture comprising of ripe tannin which adds to the structure and depth of the wine.
Domaine Naturaliste Vineyard is located in the heart of the highly acclaimed Wilyabrup sub-region of Margaret River in Western Australia.
Our vines are 7 km inland from the magnificent Indian ocean. The gravelly loam soils provide a stable foundation for our 20 year old grapevines, allowing them to achieve balance. The maritime climate is characterised by cool wet winters, and long gentle summers, which makes our area a pristine environment for growing wine.

Chard Farm River Run Pinot Noir 2020
The aromas are deep and dense, with dark cherry fruit and dried herbs to the fore opening to a floral rose and black tea perfume. Sumptuous mouth filling red and black cherry flavours move into the herb and tea notes on a pleasantly persistent finish. The silky tannins and plush acid provide enough detail and push to keep things fresh and perfectly balanced.
River Run is our Central Otago regional Pinot Noir made from grapes grown in our vineyards in different sub-regions of Central Otago. The deep alpine valleys and waterways of Central Otago have carved the land available for grape growing into quite distinct sub-regions. Each pocket of land has its own unique climate and soil mix producing quite different styles of Pinot Noir. River Run captures the character of each of the sub-regions where our vineyards are planted. Lowburn gives us bright, fresh sweet fruit, Gibbston savory and herbal tones, and Parkburn brings good texture and mineral length.

Winemaking and Viticulture
The grapes were picked at between 13.5 to 14.0 Baume to
produce the fruit flavours that are required to make this great
wine. The grapes were fermented in a mixture of vessels to
produce as much colour and flavour as possible. Portion of the
wine underwent oak during fermentation and once dry, the
remaining went to oak until the right balance was achieved.
Careful tasting and blending, by our winemaker, help produce
this wine of style and great value for money.
Intense red with purple hues. Fresh, complex cassis and mint
fruit flavours with some well integrated vanillin oak . Full bodied
with dense ripe cassis fruit flavours balanced with vanillin oak
but yet long and smooth. Try with chargrilled sirloin or a hearty
minestrone. This wine has the flavour, structure and balance to
be enjoyed now or offers added satisfaction from further
Patritti Shiraz 2019
Patritti Shiraz 2019 is classic McLaren Vale style with raspberry, plum and blackcurrant fruit flavours. Oak and fruit tannins are integrated and balanced giving great line, length and structure.
Giovanni Patritti was among the first Italian immigrants to arrive in South Australia. In 1925, a 25 year old Giovanni boarded a ship at the port of Genoa and left his Piedmontese village of Carru for a brighter future. He believed he was on his way to America to meet his sister. Instead he landed at Port Adelaide, South Australia, on the 28th of April, 1926. With not a word of English, Giovanni still managed to swiftly gain employment. He changed his Italian name to the more ‘Australian’ John, and after a number of different jobs, began selling ice-cream at the gates of the Botanic Gardens in Adelaide. Just one year later, Giovanni was leasing vineyards in the Brighton District, 15km south of Adelaide City (now the City of Marion), and making wine for the ‘new Australians’. By the late 1920s Giovanni owned a number of acres of vineyard and had built a winery with his best friend, Cristiano (Jimmy) Bissacca. From the late 1920s until the 1960s, Patritti predominantly produced dry red table wines and fortified wines. Out of a need to diversify and continue business growth in the early 1970s, the Patritti family came up with an ingenious and resourceful solution – one that has remained a unique point of difference for more than 40 years. 1974 saw the first release of 100% natural non-alcoholic sparkling grape juices from wine grapes. Some years later apple juice was introduced. Since the late 2000s, Patritti has shifted their focus towards premium wines and adopted ‘new’ and rare grape varieties, adding depth and diversity to an already extensive range. Patritti has been awarded the coveted red five-star winery status by international wine icon, James Halliday, and maintains this ranking by receiving over 90 points for multiple wines each year. Consecutive vintages of Patritti’s flagship wine, JPB Single Vineyard Shiraz, which lauds the arrival of Giovanni Patritti in 1926, have been rated an impressive 97 points by Halliday.
Flametree Embers Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 has a deliciously juicy mid palate with flavours of plum, dark cherry and dried herbs. Unashamedly medium-bodied with sweet juicy fruit and a fine tannin structure.
