Tim Smith Mataro Grenache Shiraz 2019 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.
KT Churinga Shiraz 2013. The Churinga vineyard shiraz was first planted in 1954 and this wine was lovingly created from dry grown vines planted on rich loam and slate soil, which contributes to its fine tannin structure and vibrant fruit. In the creation I’ve adopted traditional techniques of open fermentation and basket pressing. Hand picked fruit was carefully selected and fermented naturally on skins with approx 30% whole bunch fruit and a small amount of cofermented Riesling as a natural acid addition. Gentle hand plunging of the ferment and minimal working has produced a shiraz with rich fruit concentration and finely grained velvet tannins. Basket pressed, the wine was matured in 100% French oak and a mix of 3 and 4 year old French oak barriques to ensure that the fruit is the defining feature.
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.
Sigurd Red Blend 2018 is a blend of Grenache (57%), Syrah (8%), Carignan (14%), Mourvedre (21%), all the components were fermented separately with around 10 to 14 day ferments with about 20% whole bunch. Fermented in 1000L wooden vats with heading down boards using native yeast, pressed to 1000L wooden vats and 500L used French oak barrels for about 15 months of elevage, left to settle in tank for a week and then bottled. 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.
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. The Cabernet flavours really dominate in this wine but the softness of the Merlot rounds off the palate creating a well-balanced wine.
Georges Exile Shiraz 2017 Rich and concentrated as the bouquet promises, the full flavoured palate is an exercise in controlled generosity with a velvety, intense array of black fruits, chocolate and spice beautifully interwoven with vanillin flavours from the use of high quality French oak. Immaculately balanced, it finishes fine and long with ripe, soft tannins and fresh acidity. A classic Clare Valley Shiraz from a great vintage.
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.
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.
Warramate Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 A medium-bodied “classic” claret style featuring a succulent, fruit-layered palate integrated with earthy complexity & fine dusty tannins. Juicy acidity underscores well-weighted voluminous fruit & a deep, long finish, combining generosity & concentration with finesse rarely found at this price point.
