2 X Lambrook Amelia Rose Reserve Shiraz 2013

A full flavoured cool-climate Shiraz with a vibrant dark red colour and a deep purple hue. The palate is seductive with complex layers of rich black fruit and freshly cracked white pepper. Fine silky tannins add balance and structure, and lead into a long, smooth finish.

2 X Rod McDonald Wines Quarter Acre Merlot Malbec 2015

This is a wine of complex, intense aromas and flavours, and fine supple tannins. The nose shows lifted spice and clove notes, while the palate is fleshy and mouth-filling with attractive dark fruits, plum and cassis. A refined wine with ample flavour and complexity.

2 X Deep Woods Estate Block 7 Reserve Shiraz 2013

"Matured for 18 months in new and used French oak, which is still flexing its muscles, but before too long will have to gracefully give way to the supple, but intense, black cherry and black berry fruit; the handling of the tannins has been critical in giving the wine its stamp of ultimate quality." James Halliday
