  1. 2009 The Bonsai Vine GSM, d'Arenberg

    The nose is full of vibrant fresh fruit including plum, raspberry, currant and cranberry with varietal spice and a lovely violet overtone providing a delicate touch.
    The elegant palate adds rhubarb to the fruit spectrum with a very attractive pink muck nuance emerging on the mid palate with a second layer of earth and dried herbs providing a savoury kick. The lively acidity is linear and focused and a real feature. The tannins have good weight and build through the palate with a handsome presence on the long finish.

  2. 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.

  3. 2005 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. 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!).

  5. 2012 The Olive Grove Chardonnay, Originals, d'Arenberg

    The wine displays lovely peach and creamy notes, with an oyster shell minerality that runs through the palate.
    Full flavoured and textured but with a vibrant acidity and a long lingering finish, this wine delivers a plethora of stone fruit, blossoms and savoury notes.
    The oak influence is minimal allowing the true flavours of the fruit to shine.

  6. 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.

  7. 2010 The Twenty Eight Road Mourvedre, d'Arenberg

    A combination of blood orange, redcurrant, iodine, oregano and rosewater give the wine strong aromatics and exotic flavours.
    As it develops we will see even more layers of complexity in the form of game, cured meats and new leather.
    The palate is pleasantly medium bodied, displaying a beautiful restraint that allows all of these flavours to share the spotlight.
    The tannins are slightly cedary.

  8. 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.

  9. 2008 The Galvo Garage Cabernet Blend, d'Arenberg

    The nose is lifted, fragrant and inviting, cassis and blueberry are evident without being dominant. This allows the tomato vine, herb and leafy earthiness to play an equal part of what is a complex aroma.
    The palate is savoury, spicy and elegant. It’s deep and dark with rhubarb adding to the fruit spectrum and sitting alongside a subtle violet nuance and savoury elements of dark chocolate and dried herbs. There is no explosion of fruit, but rather an elegant and gradual building of complexity with persistent mineral, chalky tannins providing authoritative, balanced structure.

  10. 2010 Basket Pressed Cabernets, Skillogalee

    This Cabernet blend is another dark, rich wine in the Skillogalee tradition, with intense colour and powerful, warm aromas and flavours. The wine is full and soft with sweet, leafy fruit flavours, rich vanillin oak and firm drying tannins on a lingering finish.
