This Month's Featured Wines
“Unreconstructed. Old school. Lots of oak and lots of fruit. This is the 10th release of an Eliza Shiraz since the inaugural 1995 release. This is well done. It gives folks what they came for, and does so with style. It’s all plum, blackberry, saltbush & milk chocolate, and while the chocolatey flavours swim over the top of the fruit, they sink down too; it’s integrated, and nothing shines particularly above the other. It’s just all there, ready to be enjoyed, smooth, hedonistic, but essentially well balanced, in its style. Deft hand to the play of the tannin too.” 94 points - Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front
Deep, powerful fruit concentration. A real red to savor with everything in balance and support. Think cold winters night, howl of the wind in the trees, rain, thunder and lightning. A warm fire, crusty wood fired bread and slow cooked lamb shanks. Bring on winter and the Eliza!

"Exuberant, refreshing, lively, delicious gooseberry/passionfruit aromas and flavours" - Freycinet Vineyard
Region: East Coast, Tasmania.
- $27.85 per bottle
This wine is a medium weight, fruit driven style of wine. With only a small oak addition, the true grape flavours are revealed. Blackberry and raspberry flavours dominate this wine, whilst the palate is fleshy and smooth. This medium weight Cabernet Merlot is a great match for lamb and the softer tannins in this wine marry perfectly with the delicate nature of Tasmanian grass fed spring lamb.
