  1. 2007 Vintage Fortified Shiraz, d'Arenberg

    The nose starts with fine tobacco and dark chocolate mixed with dark fruits and lifted violets. The fine, low-strength brandy spirit plays a wonderful supporting role - selected for its 'tails' character, all juniper berries, spice and fruit and 'hearts' - roses and apricots and brings warmth and richness to the wine.The palate is fine and focussed due to the dry vintage conditions, dark plums, figs and nuts mingle with sandlewood and exotic spices. The tannins are chewy yet fine and there's a linear backbone of acidity to keep it all in check. The finish is long and layered, indicating a long life ahead for those with the patience to give this wine time in their cellar.

  2. NV The Nostalgia Rare, d'Arenberg

    In the glass it’s a burnished bronze with an alluring rim of olive – illustrating the great age of some of the parcels that have gone into this wine.
    The nose is at first a cascade of walnuts toasted almonds and rancio (drying, mature complex oak character).
    It then opens up to dried fruits, pears and apples with a sprinkling of cinnamon spice, further inspection gives up toffee, dried figs and burnt butter.
    The palate is very lively, tingling with spice and lift – a fantastic balance of freshness and age, the sweetness kept in check by the rancio.
    It’s complex, layered and focused with a silky mouthfeel and great lingering length.

  3. 2006 Vintage Fortified Shiraz, d'Arenberg

    The wine opens to lush aromas of fruitcake, spice and plum pudding, topped off with melted butter and brandy snaps on the side. Its a rich and heady mix, embracing and warming, just waiting for the chill of night and an open fire. The fine, low-strength brandy spirit plays a wonderful supporting role - selected for its 'tails' character, all juniper berries, spice and fruit and 'hearts' - roses and apricots and brings warmth and richness to the wine.The palate is dense and layered, the tannins chewy and mouthfilling interwoven with rich, ripe dark fruits - figs, plums, star anise, licorice, cloves and candied citrus peel. There's line and length from the acid and tannin backbone, leaving the finish long, clean and fresh. This wine will build further complexing characters as it ages and will reward extended cellaring.

  4. 2013 Hand Picked Cabernet Malbec Rosé, Skillogalee

    The wine shows fresh raspberry and cranberry on the nose. The palate is fresh and lively, held together by a fine structure of natural acid and fine tannin balance.

  5. NV Liqueur Muscat, Skillogalee

    This shows nutty, raisin and apricot flavours, and is full and sweet enough to match well with the sweetest desserts (even chocolate!).

  6. 2010 The Last Ditch Viognier, d'Arenberg

    The nose is a heady mix of exotic aromas. White peach and nectarine are infused with candied ginger, spice and honey blossoms.
    The palate also displays white stone fruits and apricots mixed with florals, spices and savoury notes.
    Whilst typically rich and luscious, the mouthfeel is balanced out by a lovely, flowery, nutty tannin that adds both length and focus.

  7. 2013 The Witches Berry Chardonnay, d'Arenberg

    This is a lively, balanced wine that will drink well in its youth. Peaches and cream, lemon zest and green apple are apparent on the nose with a freshness that is expected of young Chardonnay.
    The restrained use of oak allows stone fruit and nutty characters to shine through on the palate, which is aided by the small portions of Viognier and Marsanne that have been blended into this wine.

  8. 2012 Riesling, Trevarrick Single Contour, Skillogalee

    This wine shows a floral perfume on the nose with a nice touch of orange blossom. The palate has great length and minerality with all the citrus attributes expected of a Skillogalee Riesling. A tight, fresh and focused acidity keeps everything in balance.

  9. 2013 The Hermit Crab Viognier/Marsanne, Originals, d'Arenberg

    The nose of this wine displays an enticing mix of white stonefruits and sweet pineapple with an underlying hint of ginger.
    The palate is luscious and flavoursome, again nectarine and peach are prominent, with a twist of candied citrus rind.
    These sweet flavours evolve through the palate into more savoury flavours reminiscent of raw almonds and spice.
    A generous, textural wine with a surprising finesse on the finish.

  10. 2009 The Last Ditch Viognier, d'Arenberg

    The nose is a heady mix of exotic aromas. White peach and nectarine are infused with candied ginger, spice and honey blossoms.
    The palate also displays white stone fruits and apricots mixed with florals, spices and savoury notes.
    Whilst typically rich and luscious, the mouthfeel is balanced out by a lovely, flowery, nutty tannin that adds both length and focus.
