Staff Picks | Trio Pack
Three top picks by our staff from premium single vineyard sites across the country; An aged Semillon from the Hunter Valley, Cabernet from Magaret River and Shiraz from McLaren Vale.
1 x 2014 Sunshine Vineyard Semillon, Hunter Valley NSW
At 7 years of age on release, the colour is starting to show some development with yellow tints complimenting the green edges. Lifted toast and beeswax notes with hints of lemon curd. Lively lime juice, Bickfords cordial characters are backed by fine, zesty acidity. A wonderful semi-mature Hunter Valley Semillon displaying the classic texture, fruit weight and length.
1 x 2018 Wildwood Road Cabernet, Margaret River WA
94 Points - 2021 Halliday Wine Companion
Lifted blue fruit, cassis aromas and some dusty oak make this wine very appealing. A full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon with sage notes, and fine tannins from both the fruit and oak on the palate. Lovely acidity and a cedar finish describe a Cabernet Sauvignon that will age for many years.
1 x 2019 Rayner Vineyard Shiraz, McLaren Vale SA
Another great release for this iconic Single Vineyard wine. A lovely colour which is not quite as dense as some previous McLaren Vale wines. Dark fruit pastille aromas, plum and vanillin oak in the background. Sweet fruit entry on the palate, dark chocolate and a medium to full-bodied mouth feel. A stylish Shiraz and one to age over the long term.
