Classic Coonawarra Cabernet, cool blackcurrant fruit with a hint of mint. Lovely intensity. Tannins are fine and well-integrated, good depth across the palate with an attractive ‘juiciness’ to the fruit. Silky and feels very complete already, the benefit of releasing to the market with some bottle age. This is a very fine but generous Cabernet, simply a very impressive wine which will age beautifully (but there’s no need to wait!) Drink 2019 – 2026+
Martyn Rolph, Private Account Sales Manager The aromas immediately announce the variety, displaying intense characters of blackcurrant, red berry, black olive and a subtle hint of menthol. Combined with the nutty oak aromas, this wine delivers a complex yet elegant bouquet. The palate of this wine has a perfectly aligned structure, weight and intensity creating a backbone for longevity. The aromas on the nose follow through onto the palate and these full bodied, spicy flavours combined with pin point acidity and firm, grainy tannins deliver a wine of stature and grace. This wine will continue to develop in complexity and interest for as long as you can manage to cellar it. Winemakers Note

Full bodied, explosive Barossa Valley Shiraz, a very good example. Concentrated and dark, blackberry with hints of chocolate, coffee and anise. The characteristic fine tannins of the Sir Ian reds are here again, which ensure a pleasing drinkability here. Acidity is well maintained, superb length. Drinking well now but will at its best from 2020 – 2028+ Martyn Rolph, Private Account Sales Manager Rich plum, complex mocha - chocolate and spicy fruit with integrated light vanillin oak and a hint of anise, are all subtly combined. The nose shows great depth and concentration of fruit and the benefit of extended maturation pre-release. Round, soft and full flavoured with lengthy fine grain tannins. Flavours of fruity spice, coffee, chocolate and blackberry carry through onto the lengthy and persistent palate. Winemakers Note
