Adelaide Hills Shiraz 2013

Good hue and depth; spicy/savoury nuances run through the black fruits of the bouquet, as befits the Adelaide Hills; the palate explores these themes in more detail (and depth), the tannins providing the framework for the examination. In the end, you are left to wonder how the wine is the bargain it is.

Adelaide Hills Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Strong crimson hue; the estate-grown wine spent 12 months in French oak, emerging at the other end with the class and character one might expect to sell for $25 or more. It is perfectly sculpted, the varietal expression nigh on perfect, the balance and length likewise.
