  1. 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.

  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. 2010 Joseph Hill Gewurztraminer, Henschke

    Pale gold in colour. Lifted perfumed aromas of lychee, Turkish delight and rose petal with tropical hints. The palate shows perfumed fruits and is sweet and spicy, richly flavoured, a nice
    texture with crisp acidity and good length.

  5. 2010 Anaperenna Shiraz Cabernet, Glaetzer

    Enticing liquorice and fragrant herb notes on the nose, revealing hints of dark stone fruits and cassis with layers of roasted coffee beans. The key characteristic on the palate is the textural tannins that provide support for the supple yet restrained palate - finishing with freshness, purity and length.

  6. 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!).

    2012 Louis Semillon, Henschke

    (6x75cl)

    The crisp, fresh nose exhibits sweet, lifted, honeydew aromas with citrus blossom, nectarine, lanolin and some grassy hints. The palate is well structured with ripe citrus and nectarine flavours.

  8. 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.

  9. 2010 d'Arry's Original Shiraz Grenache, d'Arenberg

    This wine displays a level of finesse and freshness that we don’t always encounter in other vintages of the same wine. In a somewhat surprising contrast to this, the wine also displays a dense and varied array of fruit characters, from bright lifted purple plums and rhubarb through to more spice and herbal notes such as sage and cardamom, into even more complex earthy flavours of beetroot and soot.
    These flavours are perfectly supported by a frame of fine, minerally tannins that add a subtle grip and enticingly long finish.

  10. 2012 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.
