Flametree SRS Wallcliffe Syrah 2016. This unashamedly medium bodied Syrah styled Shiraz shows lovely lifted spice, clove, orange peel, liquorice, plum, blackberry and earthy notes. The palate displays a wonderful core of elegant blue/black fruits, spice and fine tannins. The lifted fruits are supported by a nice core of oak and stalk tannin. Drinking well at the moment the wine will develop added complexity over the next 6 months and then age for up to 10 years.

A small amount of Sulfur just before bottling. The 30 year old Mourvedre out of Koonunga in Northern Barossa, the 25 year old Syrah from around Williamstown which I manage organically. Grenache from 80 year old vines in Tanunda and the young vine Carignan out of Northern Barossa area of Ebenezer.
Chateau Mont-Redon Chateauneuf du Pape 2016. Inky hue violet deep violet rim. Intense nose with red fruit aromas combined to complex smokiness. Palate with tight and focused tannins.

Chateau Les Grands Marecheaux 2015
Château Massereau, situated at Barsac at about 30 kilometers from Bordeaux, was built in the 16th century and acquired by the Chaigneau family in 2000. The estate extends over 19 hectares, 10 planted (6 600 – 7 000 plants/hectare) in the Barsac, Graves and Bordeaux Superieur appellations.
Jean-François, who chose by passion to become a wine-maker, and Philippe, his brother, sales manager, have taken on a real challenge. Quality and authenticity are the key-words of the estate to give birth to fine, natural, authentic artisan wines.
Extreme vine-growing and wine-making methods, with respect of the terroir, of the vines, of the grapes on the 3 terroirs of Barsac, Graves and Bordeaux Superieur : ploughing (sometimes with horses) (no chemical weeding), disbudding, thinning out of leaves, selection of bunches as well as the harvest are manual and regarding the grapes of Barsac, they are pressed in an old wood press operated manually.
No chaptalisation, no acidification, no filtration, no fining, no wine-making additives, use of a very small quantity of SO² (total SO² from 10 to 35 mg/l), no manipulation, in order to offer natural wines and allow the terroirs to express their typical qualities.
Cirillo Shiraz 2018 – made with grapes sourced from high altitude vines from Steingarten on the border of Barossa and Eden Valley ranges.
With open fermentation, natural yeast , basket pressed and then matured in seasoned French and American oak for 12 months.
The colour is dark, ink-like in appearance. It displays earthy spice driven aromas, with hints of berry fruits. Soft and delicate on the palate, typical of shiraz from this region.
It carries mid-palate weight, with a lengthy finish that lingers in the mouth for some time. This wine can be enjoyed now or over the next decade or two.
Eldorado Road Quasimodo 2017.
To understand Quasimodo you must venture beyond the surface and explore the inner soul. As individual varietal wines they can struggle for love but when blended together they can sing, shine and bring harmony.
Quasimodo is a unique Australian blend of Nero d’Avola, Shiraz & Durif sourced from the regions of Eldorado and Rutherglen. It’s an amalgam of flavour and colour culminating in a complex rewarding wine.
Brought together from many different ferments with a goal of creating an affable blend built on the of layers flavours these three distinct varieties bring. Nero d’Avola is grown in our home vineyard and brings the vitality and bright red fruits. The Shiraz comes from a vineyard a short 5 minute drive down a dirt track from our winery perched amongst the boulders of a granite outcrop. This is a painfully low cropping vineyard resulting depth of flavour not attainable from higher yielding vineyards, this component fleshes out the mid palate. The final piece in the puzzle is Rutherglen Durif, dark and brooding the addition of just 15% gives the wine backbone and a subtle lick of tannin through the back palate without overpowering this medium bodied blend. Lightly filtered then bottled August 2017.
Il Gobbo Nero Syrah Toscana 2011
Il Gobbo Nero is our single-variety syrah, produced from the selection of the best syrah grapes of our vineyard. The vinification takes place in concrete tanks, then the wine rests for 12 months in French oak barriques. The wine spends 12 months of refinement in the bottle, before being sold. The wine has a deep ruby red colour, and at the nose it pleasantly surprises with notes of pepper, cinnamon, berries such as currant, blueberry and a cherry base. Compelling in the mouth, with fine and flaunt tannins, structured body, well balanced, with a fresh note calibrated. The finish is inviting and complex.
Pasolini dall’onda Rosso Toscana 2018 – A fun Rosso from Tuscany. Nose of cherry and violet notes, dry and juicy at the
Maxwell Little Demon Cabernet Merlot 2018 Shows fresh fruit; plum, blackberry, and cherries. Well balanced tannin with subtle vanilla oak create a soft and round finish.

Plantagenet Aquitaine Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
Intense cassis and dried floral aromas. With a dense vibrant core of berry fruit on the palate and hints of fresh tobacco and subtle earthy undertones. A very approachable, youthful Cabernet with potential to age.
Plantagenet’s total 126 hectares of vineyard have been carved out of the region’s distinctive Marri soils named after the massive native Marri, or Red Gum trees that grow here. The soils are ironstone gravelly loams over a base of clay, sand or the ironstone rock. The vineyards sites are selected where drainage is good enabling control over vine vigour, one of the most important determinents of fruit quality.The combination of soils, landforms and climate – or terroir – creates wines of rare distinction and quality.
