  • 2020 Viognier, TahbilkWhite Wine

    2020 Viognier, Tahbilk

    £1395

    This delicious Viognier from a dry vintage has an intense and fragrant nose of rose petal and ginger spice leading to a softly textured palate of apricot, peach and honeydew melon characters. All this lifted by a deliciously zesty acidity on the finish.

    “Our 2020 Estate whites will be remembered for their lifted fruit intensity, with no better example than this Viognier release. Vivacious ginger, rose petal and citrus blossom aromas are a siren’s song temptation to a textural palate of stone fruit and honeysuckle characters.” – Alister Purbrick ~ Tahbilk Winemaker & CEO

    Tahbilk’s relationship with the varietals that call France’s Rhone Valley home can be traced back to our earliest days with a good deal of fortuitous luck leading to the establishment of that connection rather than a grand plan looking ahead over 160 years!
    Prior to taking possession of what would become the Tahbilk Estate, one of the directors placed an advertisement in the leading newspapers of Melbourne, Geelong, Adelaide and Sydney for 1,000,000 vines. This resulted in the Tabilk Vineyard Company (as we were known then) receiving around 600,000 vine cuttings, among which was the white ‘Rhone’ varietal, Marsanne.
    Marsanne being the solo ‘Rhone’ whites’ flag-waver for the Estate ended in 1990 with the successful planting of Viognier and Roussanne.
    Marsanne will always be the undisputed leader of this trio, but there is no doubt that each of these two relatively new Estate ‘Rhone’s’ are showing that they have to have admirably embraced their adopted homeland.

  • 2020 Great Southern Chardonnay, Three LionsWhite Wine

    2020 Great Southern Chardonnay, Three Lions

    £1450

    Made by Great Southern pioneers/icons, Plantagenet, this wine is vibrant yellow-gold in colour. Peach and nectarine aromas dominate with hints of nougat and lemon blossom, and a touch of waxy citrus leaf. On the palate, crunchy white nectarine gives a real sense of freshness, balanced perfectly with a mineral drive, creamy texture and subtle toasty notes.

    Plantagenet’s 126 hectares of vineyards have been carved out of the region’s distinctive Marri soils, named after the massive native Marri, or Red Gum, trees that grow there. Fruit for this wine was sourced from two of the estate’s sites, Rocky Horror and Crystal Brook. Located 15km south of Mount Barker, Rocky Horror was planted in 1999 on soils consisting of deep gravel loam over ironstone with, with a north and west-facing aspect. Crystal Brook, established in 1988, lies 4km from Rocky Horror on a fertile mix of gravel loam and sand soils. All vineyard operations are completed with an active focus on sustainability in order to maximise biodiversity.

  • 2020 ‘The Black’ Shiraz ‘Winemakers Reserve’, Berton VineyardRed Wine

    2020 ‘The Black’ Shiraz ‘Winemakers Reserve’, Berton Vineyard

    £1495

    The Winemakers Reserve Black Shiraz is a multi-award winning wine and an outstanding example of Australian Shiraz with deep colour and aromas of blackberry and plum over toasty coffee and spicy oak. The palate is full-flavoured and intense with rich plum, blueberry and mocha notes. The tannins are ripe and dense imparting great structure and length to the palate.

    Predominantly sourced from the vineyards in Padthaway, South Australia, where the soils are sandy loam over clay, formed on old lagoon sediments. These sandy soils lead to poor nutrient and water retention which helps to concentrate the flavours in the fruit. The vines are grown on single wire trellises, ensuring an open canopy. Drip irrigation is used in the vineyards to manage the water supply and reduce evaporation, as water is applied directly above the roots. The fruit was harvested during the cooler nights to retain freshness.

  • 2017 The Custodian Grenache, d’Arenberg Wine Republic Heros Red Wine

    2017 The Custodian Grenache, d’Arenberg

    £1550

    A beautiful crimson-purple, edging toward a purple hue. On the nose, we find tomato leaves, violets and red fruits. It’s medium-bodied with more of those red fruits, pomegranate, and rhubarb. A little on the ripe side, with some green edges. There’s some lovely, beautiful crisp acidity. A gloriously dry finish. Velvety tannins envelop the wine. Light easy-drinking in its youth. With time, this wine will become a showstopper.

    The Name:  During the vine pull scheme in the 1980s, d’Arry Osborn refused to remove his old grenache vineyards. Today d’Arenberg is the keeper of nearly one-third of McLaren Vale’s old bush vine grenache, earning the title of ‘Custodian’ of the variety.

  • 2021 Apostrophe Stone’s Throw White, Larry CherubinoWhite Wine

    2021 Apostrophe Stone’s Throw White, Larry Cherubino

    £1595

    This vintage was awarded 94 pts by James Halliday

    This delicious and refreshing homage to Alsace is made from grapes whose vineyards are located in the Great Southern region of Western Australia.  Characterised by the influence of the Southern Ocean, which provides breezes from the Antarctic, chilling the grapes and making it an ideal growing climate for Riesling and Gewürztraminer and Pinot Blanc – varietals that excel at these lower temperatures.

    Riesling’s cool lime and minerality meshes with Gewurztraminer’s exotic spice and rose water. The softly textured palate has a long, refreshing acidity supported by citrus notes and rose petal on the finish.

    The wine is called Stone’s Throw because the Riesling and Gewürztraminer are planted a stone’s throw from each other in the same vineyard.

  • 2020 The Broken Fishplate Sauvignon Blanc, d’Arenberg Wine Republic Heros White Wine

    2020 The Broken Fishplate Sauvignon Blanc, d’Arenberg

    £1595

    A flashy sauvignon blanc offering lashings of tropicals such as passionfruit and gooseberry on the highly aromatic nose, boosted by an undercurrent of fresh cut grass and asparagus. The palate is refreshingly crisp and mineral. Vibrant citrus-like acid is a real feature. But this is accompanied by the generosity in flavour and a hint of added texture through some very light-handed oak treatment and a small dose of wild ferment. Balanced and long, served chilled this wine will hit the spot on a warm, sunny day.

    Despite being a good match for fish, the name has nothing to do with them! A fishplate is a term for the nylon plates that collect grape bunches on a harvester and often break when navigating around the steep, windy vineyards.

  • 2015 ‘Cane Cut’ Marsanne, Tahbilk, 500mlDessert Wine, Port & Dessert Wine

    2015 ‘Cane Cut’ Marsanne, Tahbilk, 500ml

    £1595

    Established in 1860, Tahbilk is a historic family-owned winery, renowned for their Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and of course their Marsanne!  Marsanne is one of the world’s rarest grape varieties originating in the Northern Rhone & Hermitage regions of France it is grown in only 3 other countries, Australia, America & Switzerland. Tahbilk holds the largest and oldest single holding of the variety in the world.

    This beautiful dessert wine is full of citrus and tropical fruit characters that are complemented by lush marmalade, nutty and honeysuckle notes on a richly opulent palate, refreshed by a mineral-like acidity.  Delicious with stinky cheeses or summer puddings or just because you enjoy life on the sweet side!

    This wine is named after the practice of cutting the canes, where the fruiting cane is detached from the vine. The bunches of grapes are left to hang prior to harvest, drying the fruit which concentrates the flavours and sugars, resulting in a luscious wine.

  • 2020 Apostrophe Possessive Red, Larry CherubinoRed Wine

    2020 Apostrophe Possessive Red, Larry Cherubino

    £1595

    Approachable, striking and modern, this red blend oozes complexity – with the Shiraz’s earthiness tempering the Grenache’s muskiness; and together they soften the subtle steeliness of the Mataro. Notes of rose petal, musk and plum prelude a medium-bodied palate with vibrant berry flavours and fine tannins underpinned by cleansing acidity.

    The vineyard is located in the Frankland River area of the Great Southern, which is considered to be one of the most distinctive viticulture areas in Australia. The flavour of wines grown here comes from a granite-based soil. These gravelly soils also line the river valleys, rolling hills and lowlands. The vineyards are situated with a northern orientation, optimising the long sunlight hours, which promotes ripening and maturation of the grapes. T

  • 2018 The Love Grass Shiraz, d’Arenberg Wine Republic Heros Red Wine

    2018 The Love Grass Shiraz, d’Arenberg

    £1595

    The Love Grass 2020 is a Shiraz straight from the d’Arenberg playbook. As a young wine when first opened, it may appear closed, dark and brooding. Tar, earth and black liquorice. Air and time both help to massage out the abundant sweet fruits, blackberry and plum with an undertone of fennel and spice. In a similar way, the palate starts quite muscular and tight but over time relaxes into a more generous juicy wine. As the juicy fruit evolves the initially rustic tannins start to settle into it like sinking into a plush armchair. The strong earth characters are a nod to the organic and biodynamic principles adopted in the vineyard. The character of the fruit is gently supported, rather than dominated, by savoury old oak barrels. All in all, this is a structural wine that over-delivers at the price point and will certainly benefit from decanting whilst rewarding those with the patience to cellar it well for 5 to 10 years

    Lovegrass is a weed that grows in the vineyards and its sticky flowers affectionately attach themselves to vineyard workers’ socks. This Shiraz will linger with you in the same way that the flowers do!
