2016 COMMAND SHIRAZ
97 points, features in 2020 Shiraz Varietal Winners list

Available March 2020

Wears its heart on its sleeve, but there’s no shame in that when it has a proud record of success for its opulent purple and black fruits and deft oak handling.

2017 ASHMEAD CABERNET SAUVIGNON
95 points

Available March 2020

Full-bodied, rich and opulent, with new oak very much in evidence from start to finish. Unexpectedly, it is on the aftertaste that the fruit breaks free from the yoke of the oak.

2016 ODE TO LORRAINE
95 points

Available soon

Sophisticated winemaking weaves the three varieties into a medium-bodied palate perfectly framed by oak and fine, ripe tannins. On an equilibrium right now, which it will, of course, hold for years to come.

2018 WESTERN RIDGE GRENACHE CARIGNAN
95 points

Available soon

A wolf in sheep’s clothing, it is at once savoury and fruity, the mouthfeel that of the grapes ex very old vines, an intangible thing.

2017 NEIL ASHMEAD GRAND TOURER SHIRAZ
94 points

Available soon

Deep colour; an expressive bouquet of plum and diverse black fruits, the medium to full-bodied
palate following in the centre of the road, adding a veneer of spicy/savoury notes largely ex oak. A long life ahead.

Eden Valley Riesling2018 EDEN VALLEY RIESLING
92 points

Available now

A slightly softer expression from this vintage, but absolutely true to type. Lemon butter, lime zest and white flower aromas, and then sweet citrus and apple flavours with typically slatey acidity on the finish. To drink now or cellar is your choice.

Elderton Barossa Cabernet Sauvignon NV bottle shot2016 BAROSSA CABERNET SAUVIGNON
91 points

Available now

As ever, a well constructed wine allowing the inherently generous nature of Barossa cabernet to strut its stuff … overall drinkability factor is high.
