Mixed Red Dozen
3 bottles each of:
2015 Cricket Pitch Red, South Eastern Australia
Excellent colour and mid-density. Being 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 29% Shiraz it is more of the classic Aussie blend Cabernet/Shiraz. Lifted dark fruit and cedar notes on the nose. A rich mouth feel from the McLaren Vale Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. Fine tannins with the oak very much in the background ensuring great drinkability.
2016 Pinot Noir, Beechworth, VIC
A terrific year for Pinot Noir and it shows in every aspect of this wine. Light to medium density with purple edges. Lifted smokey, dark cherry and pastille aromas that keep you returning to smell them. Perfect ‘sweet fruit’ flavours on the initial palate and then a slight maraschino cherry note. Sweet oak and juicy acidity give a long lasting flavour combination. A wine of unrestrained pleasure that can be enjoyed in the short term or over the next few years.
2017 Sangiovese, Beechworth, VIC
Vibrant young colours and medium density. Very fragrant and appealing nose of red/maraschino cherry aromas. The background shows sweet oak, although the wine was not in any new barrels. Bright, savoury Sangiovese fruit on the palate with juicy acidity. Typical drying tannins and red spice/ginger notes with a great finish. Immensely enjoyable.
2014 Area Blend Shiraz, McLaren Vale, SA, Hunter Valley, NSW & Beechworth, VIC
An excellent McLaren Vale vintage and the Hunter Shiraz shines at 25%. Everything about this wine is medium bodied. Some purple edges evident and quite floral/rose petal aromas. The palate has lovely weight and fruit spice flavours. The blend works perfectly. Low oak impact and ripe tannins for a great finish.
