You don't get much more Barossa than Turkey Flat - one the valley's great names. And a couple of weeks ago we got a call with a clearance of aged Butcher's Block red blend from 2008. We tasted it and we absolutely loved it for its generosity of wa...
Bright colour; fresh, lifted and fragrant spicy bouquet, with red and black fruits and sage thrown in for good measure; lively and refreshing, this is a young style of wine simply made to be enjoyed, and not necessarily in moderation. A 45/35/20% ...
Kaesler plus Barossa equals a damn fine drink. This is a classic Australian blend full of sweet fruit and loads of stuffing with plenty of interest sure to impress ths snootiest of guests.
For as long as we can remember Geoff Merrill has been famous for two things, an amazing moustache and making amazing wines from the McLaren Vale. Sadly the moustache has now gone but gladly the winemaking skill has not. All of Merrill’s premium of...
Quite developed colour; typical Barossa Valley blend; light- to medium-bodied, with some spicy/earthy/ cedary characters to both the fruit and the tannins; good length.
Equally good hue; has more strength in structural terms, but slightly less mid-palate vinosity. Good length.
Holding hue very well; similarly generous, but slightly firmer and more toward black fruits, but retains elegance, balance and mouthfeel on a long finish.
Has risen above the challenges of the vintage; generous, supple mouthfilling juicy, sweet red fruits with touches of mocha and spice; total control of extract and oak.
Very nice wine; excellent fusion of fruit, oak and tannins; juicy, pleasantly jammy, grenache coralled by spicy shiraz and firm mourvedre.
Aroma’s of coffee and spice with a hint of fennel while the palate is youthful with the old vine Grenache provid-ing raspberry’s and black cherries, with black currant from the Shiraz and the Mourvedre giving verve , all sup-ported by a firm yet f...
A delicious medium-bodied wine with affinities to the Southern Rhone; the tighter focus of McLaren Vale grenache contributing to the mouthfeel, but richer shiraz and the tannins of mourvedre also play their part.
Elegant medium-bodied wine; a full array of flavours including blackberry, raspberry and red cherries; fine tannins. McLaren Vale can do with ease what the Barossa finds difficult.
Entrust fruit from old vines in capable hands and you get some of the best wines Australia has to offer. Black as the ace of spades, with enough fruit to stop a freight train, this is a wine for meat lovers.
Elegant, medium-bodied shiraz is holding the structure, the 3 flavour streams coalesce convincingly; good balance and finish.
Nicely developed smoky bacon nose, followed by a clean and lively palate that still has flavour and fruit.
