"Here’s a fine, savoury and crunchy Pinot Noir. Cherry, spice, some smoky reduction and autumn leaves kind of gear. Gentle lick of tannin, pleasing sappiness, and a red fruited finish of fair length, some peel-like bitterness in the aftertaste. Good value on offer here." Gary Walsh
Item Code: ITM17452
Intense in flavour but with an appealing lightness of touch, this elegant Syrah combines red and black fruits with savoury characters. New oak plays a part without dominating the fruit and tannins are fine-grained. The wine will age with grace but is already drinking well.
Item Code: ITM6179
"Hand-picked, wild yeast open-fermented, matured in new and used French oak. Archetypal cool climate, medium-bodied, shiraz. Its core of red and black cherry fruit has flecks of pepper, licorice and spice, the tannins smooth and supple, the oak totally integrated. Lovely style." Halliday Wine Companion
Item Code: ITM20549
"Firm, fruit-filled, kissed with classy oak and then savoury to close. An excellent example of Australian tempranillo. Cherry, cola, cloves and an array of dried spices. Good depth of fruit; nothing wimpy about this. A bit of grunt to the tannin too. It pushes the ripeness envelop – and carries some warmth as a result – but just stops short of overdoing it." Campbell Mattinson
Item Code: ITM6832
Delicacy and structure combined in the way only a good Pinot can. Intoxicating cherry and smoked meat aromas lead to cranberry tartness on the palate and plentiful fine tannins.
Item Code: ITM6836
This wine exhibits pronounced notes of blackcurrant and cedar alongside savoury herbal notes. The palate offers fleshy dark fruits and fresh acidity, which is integrated with a sweet clip of new oak. Length is excellent.
Item Code: ITM5648
"Takes a little time to wind up and get into gear, but having done so offers a very complex bouquet of plums and baker's spices, the palate gaining length and purpose each time I came back to it, although the flavour spectrum didn't crumble." Halliday Wine Companion
Item Code: ITM20293
Wonderful Northern Rhone style Syrah - savoury, gamey meats, with dustings of white pepper and tobacco leaf. The palate is elegant and restrained but with great intensity, framed by fine-grained tannins. A long and savoury finish makes this wine very moreish. Outstanding.
Item Code: ITM23232
Bright red fruits on the nose that open up onto a palate of raspberry, dark cherry and hints of savoury spices. Medium-bodied with soft tannins gives a fine acid structure to a long finish.
Item Code: ITM18633
'Light to medium red-purple colour, very bright and youthful. The bouquet is shy and reserved but clean and fragrant, with red cherry to strawberry nuances. A light, almost ethereal pinot of considerable charm.' Huon Hooke
Item Code: ITM15435
"Herb and spice notes sit deep within a pool of cherry, plum and clove. This velvety red pours on the charm, the fruit and spice characters married quite perfectly. Flavour and style are excellent. The only detraction is the warmth of the finish, though it’s by no means fatal. It’s a very good example of Yarra Valley shiraz." Campbell Mattinson
Item Code: ITM6834
Graceful yet powerful, this Syrah offers a beautifully structured savoury palate of red and black fruits coupled with light pepper and fine-grained tannins, all bound together by a sweet clip of new oak. This is a soft and intense wine of elegance and poise.
Item Code: ITM4781
“The fruit for this slinky pinot noir was harvested across two picking windows, the earlier to retain acidity and brightness of fruit, a challenge in this warm vintage. The outcome is a brooding, dark fruited Pinot Noir with an elemental streak of whole-cluster herb and twig, running through the mid-palate. The stems confer some crunchy tannins, too, reining in the flavours of cherry, wood smoke and rhubarb.” Halliday Wine Companion
Item Code: ITM21149
"[it's] perfumed and has more sweetness to its fruit than many of its vintage brethren. You could almost drink this young and get the full experience though it will benefit greatly given time to soften and evolve. Forest berries, spice, cool garden herbs, mineral and a kiss of sweet/cedary/smoky oak. The fruit feels silken, the tannin feels gruff, but they’re not at odds, they’re managing to get along. It’s going places, this pinot noir." Campbell Mattinson

What a wine! The use of whole bunches during fermentation has given this Pinot a wonderful herbal character, with sappy gaminess and dried cherry aromas. The depth of flavour on the palate is stunning, with incredible concentration and layered complexity. Good length on the finish too, with a spicy, herbal tone. Outstanding.
Item Code: ITM21658
Complex, earthy, a bit of whole bunch funk wrapped around a core of bright red and black cherry fruit. Oak, tannins and acid are all just so. It is is a wine you can drink with gusto or sit back with for quiet contemplation – it has it all. Top cool-climate Syrah that will do you proud now or in years to come.
