The 2018 Knappstein Shiraz is full of brambles and blue/black fruits with a spicy lift. Layers of brooding dark fruits, spice and savoury characters are framed in fine oak. The sinewy tannin profile pulls the wine through to a long and moreish finish.
Citrus aromas concentrate the nose with exceptional power. White peach and pear come through, attesting further to the strength of the fruit. Careful cellaring and patience will reward with graceful ageing.
Red cherry and strawberry aromas layered with more delicate notes of rose petal and sweet spice. The palate is bright, with fresh pink grapefruit acidity, and a softly textured finish. A perfect accompaniment to a range of modern Australian cuisine.
Layers of spice and a savoury grilled meat character provide a savoury aspect, with firm sinewy tannin driving the wine through a long and fresh finish. With careful cellaring this wine will reward ageing 15 years plus.
An immediately recognisable Watervale Riesling aromatically, with ripe lemon juice aromas complexed by floral highlights leaping out of the glass. Lively flavours balance with a sense of delicacy in this Riesling.
Aromas of freshly cut green apple blend with fennel and vanilla on a complex but restrained nose. The palate bursts with flavours of lime juice and white blossoms. With careful cellaring this wine will reward ageing for up to 10 years.
