This Month's Featured Wines
- REGION: Coal River Valley, Southern TasmaniaThe wine has a bright, light straw colour and an aroma of fresh cut nectarines, white petal, ginger and hints of coriander seed and five spice. Powerful stone fruits are immediately apparent on the palate with fresh lime juice acidity giving a linier drive. Subtle complex spices from the French oak and a mealy texture assist in harmonising the fruit and this builds with time after opening.
(not available in store).This is a benchmark cool climate Tasmanian Chardonnay. It has enticing tropical fruit aromas with cashew like complexity. Citrus and stone fruit flavours with the added toasty oak character giving support in the background. Beautifully balanced and textural in its flavour profile. Just starting to come together now but will improve and develop with further bottle age. Drink now till 2020. Outstanding.

- The Vincent Grenache comes from the Steingarten vineyard near the border of the Eden and Barossa Valleys. It’s a more feminine and perfumed expression than the 1850 Old Vine wine, more so in 2011. It’s only light to medium bodied and doesn’t quite have the depth of previous vintages. Still, it remains a bargain. Make sure you decant it if you’re going to drink it now. It benefits tremendously from a bit of exposure. Sweet cherry, florals, red fruits and spice on the nose. There are some herbs on the palate and the bright acidity segues into crunchy, stalky tannin…which softens with time. Hints of earth, meat and leather appear over time. A smart effort from a challenging vintage. 90 Good. Jeremy Pringle ‘ Wine Will Eat Itself’

- Something different....
This is the latest release of what could well be Australia's best Durif! It's already picked up a Gold Medal at America's top wine show the San Francisco Wine Competition and an International Gold at Germany's 2015 Mundus Vini Wine Competition. The 2012 vintage was awarded 2 Trophies and 4 Gold. Since the first vintage back in 2000 it has stacked up over 20 Trophies and 65 Gold medals! It's a perfect partner to hearty Winter stews..
The Tasmanian Wine Centre 24th June, 2015This is robust but accessible in presentation with a good core carrying the wine to a long, dry, firm finish. This is fulsome, upfront, bold and vibrant, black fruited Durif with plenty of grip and structure. Match with slow-cooked game meat." 18/20 - Raymond Chan Wine Reviews
