Unico Zelo 2019 'Truffle Hound' Nebbiolo/Barbara

$40.00

Affectionately known as 'Truffle Hound' - is our early-released, approachable and jovial expression of Barbera & Nebbiolo - we aim to retain the higher aromatics, herbal savouriness for its amaro-like refreshment. For those that favour meaty, gaminess over bright plum-fruit. An exploration for umami-like refreshment. It presents with a smoky, amaro-like liquorice and cardamom spice. Given drive by a lively and juicy palate-weight and pucker with a bright yet savoury finish.

TASTING NOTES 2010

Awatea ’10 is a dark magenta colour with aromas of fresh blackberry and raspberry infused with rosemary and sandalwood. The palate is pure, powerful, and well balanced, with mineral freshness and fine powdery tannin warmth contributing to its length.

Awatea ’10 is a blend of 42% cabernet sauvignon, 40% merlot, 12% cabernet franc and 6% petit verdot. It will continue to evolve in bottle, providing great enjoyment up to 10 years from harvest. It is a natural partner for savoury red meat dishes and hard cheeses.

WINEMAKING

The separate parcels of grapes were destemmed before a traditional warm, plunged fermentation and extended maceration on skins. The resulting wines were then run to new and seasoned French oak barrels for 18 months’ ageing. Throughout this time, they were regularly topped and racked. The separate wines were blended in January 2011, then returned to barrel for their second winter. The finished wine was then egg white fined and bottled in November 2011.

Hahndorf Hill 2015 Compatriots

$60.00

Tasting notes: Compatriots means 'mates' and this plush blend of Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot is in a proud Australian tradition. It has a generous and enticing nose, and the palate is an delicious mix of ripe red fruits, liquorice and cedar, with rich, smooth tannins offset by gentle, juicy acidity. Think roaring fireplaces, lamb shanks and winter comradery. This wine will age well for 15 years.

Dalwhinnie 2008 Southwest Rocks Shiraz

$75.00

 "Deep garnet-purple coloured, the 2010 Southwest Rocks Shiraz has an intense, complex nose of ripe black cherries, black raspberries and roses with underlying hints of toast, nuts, baking spices and smoked meat.  Light to medium-bodied with amazing intensity and tension in the mouth, it has a medium to firm level of grainy tannins, very crisp acid and a long finish. Made for the long haul, consider holding onto it for a year or two and drink 2014 to 2024+."

Torbreck 2011 'The Struie' Shiraz

$80.00

It is a high-altitude area of between 400 and 500 metres, compared with the Barossa Valley’s elevation of 200 to 300 metres. This higher altitude and 1 to 2 weeks later ripening pattern results in more distinctive varietal flavour characteristics, lower pH and higher acidities.

While the Eden Valley region is most associated with the white wine variety, Riesling, it also produces elegant, tautly structured Shiraz which is highly prized by winemakers.

This Torbreck Shiraz cuvée is a skilful blend of fruit from a 40 year old Eden Valley Shiraz vineyard and an 80 year old Barossa Shiraz vineyard – a marriage of elegance and intensity.
