  1. 2011 Ferrous Pinot Noir, Kooyong

    A darker and more restrained nose than the Meres. Rather than a panoply of mixed fruits, this is more dense and complex, with smoked meats, blueberry, ironstone, black olive, and a touch of Chinese five spice. A singular style with an exciting range of flavours. Tannins are quite firm on the back palate at the moment, and will soften with age.

  2. 2011 The Stump Jump Cabernet Sauvignon, d'Arenberg

    Sweet crème de cassis and mulberry, aromatic violets with a twist of blackcurrant leaf, if you were in any doubt as to the wines varietal provenance. Shows beautifully elegant on the palate but still offers plenty of dark, sweet fruits. The mint and leafy notes work as a nice counter point to the more luscious mulberry fruit. The cedary notes and fine grained tannin draw the wine to a long and focused finish. Primary, balanced and vibrant in youth, this wine is as appealing now as it will no doubt be in 3-5 years.

  3. 2011 Pinot Noir, Madfish

    2011 Pinot Noir, Madfish

    (6x75cl)

    Medium intensity in colour with a bouquet of damask rose, cherry, earth and spice. Vibrant and succulent cherry fruit and underlying mushroom and earthy nuances fill the palate. The palate texture is slippery and silky with a fine thread of acidity and soft mouth filling tannins.

  4. 2008 The Ironstone Pressings GSM, d'Arenberg

    On the nose we are struck by the typical dark fruits. Plums, mulberries, fresh soil and more developed peaty like notes are all apparent, with an underlying lick of exotic Indian spice.
    An abundance of fresh fruits on the palate marry well with the more complex characters of quince paste, cinnamon, nutmeg, star anise and earthy beetroot. Driving the core of the wine is that vintage trademark in the form of graphite and wet stone. This wine, while appearing open and generous already, will continue to age well thanks to the lively line of acidity and the abundance of fine gritty tannins.

  5. 2010 Abercrombie Cab Sauv, Howard Park

    The deep and dark ruby colour implies the intensity and richness that is abundantly delivered on bouquet and palate. Full of dense and very ripe blackberry and blackcurrant fruits with hints of sweet mint, freshly rubbed savoury herbs, earth and truffle. The fruit power and opulence of the palate is deftly cradled by well integrated ripe fruit, firm acidity and fine oak tannins. A wine of great presence that will age with grace.

  6. 2010 The Derelict Vineyard Grenache, d'Arenberg

    A concentrated wine with great depth and complexity by any standard. Oozing purple fruits, plums, blackcurrant and mulberry with just a hint of wild raspberry. These sweet fruits are countered by a raft of savoury notes, ranging from soil and meat through to cedar and nutmeg. The tannins are precisely sculpted, reminiscent of finely crushed china.

  7. 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon, Heartland

    The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon is a vibrant ruby in colour. Wonderfully fragrant, with a lifted nose of black cherries, mulberries and plums, complemented by spicy oak characters of tobacco and vanilla. The palate displays plummy, blackcurrant jam notes with a hint of mocha.
    A rich, textural wine, with savoury, fine-grain tannins and fresh acidity.

  8. 2013 Dolcetto Lagrein, Heartland

    Deep, glass-coating ruby in colour. Blackberries and wild herbs with smoked meats and spice on the nose. In the mouth, earthy flavours and fresh acidity from the Lagrein mingle with sweet, red cherry and spice of the Dolcetto.

  9. 2008 Cyril Cabernet, Henschke

    Deep crimson in colour. Lifted and perfumed with violets, cassis, blueberries, plums, blackberries and spice with hints of vanilla and cedar. The palate is supple and shows soft, fleshy, nicely textured fruit with mossy notes and a long finish.

  10. 2009 The Sticks and Stones Tempranillo Blend, d'Arenberg

    To taste this exotic mix of Iberian varieties is to embark upon a tantalizing journey of the senses. The nose exhibits an enticing mix of red, black and purple fruits such as plum, blackcurrant and dark cherry truffle. There is another layer of secondary aromas though, that makes this a seriously complex wine, mushrooms, autumn leaves and earth.
    A similar theme is found on the palate with flavours of red licorice, spice and peat all evident. The hallmark of this vintage though is a rhubarb, ironstone-like note that adds an incredible core of mineral tannins and bright acidity. The wine is both lively and complex at the same time.
