Description

Red | Peter Lehmann ‘Layers’ | Grenache, Shiraz, Mourvedre, Tempranillo | Barossa | 2017

The innovative ‘Layers’ wines use traditional Barossa combinations as a base upon which to build wines that express the new face of the Barossa. Spicy Grenache is blended with fruity Shiraz and earthy Mourvedre, with 20% of firm, savoury Tempranillo to complete the blend.

Red | Willunga 100 | Shiraz/Viognier | McLaren Vale | 2016 |  V  VG

A classic blend of Shiraz with a touch of Viognier to add perfume and fix the deep purple colour. The grapes are co- fermented to ensure optimal integration. Aromas of violets, musk, pepper and spicy fruit with flavours of dark chocolate and fruits of the forest.

Red | Willunga 100 | Grenache | McLaren Vale | 2016 |  V  VG

Proud Grenache enthusiasts, Willunga 100 have a wealth of old Grenache vines to work with. They produce a diverse range of wines to show off the best of what this variety can offer. This characterful and perfumed expression has succulent red fruit and floral aromatics, accompanied by spicy undertones and silky tannins.

Red | Mitolo `Jester` | Shiraz | McLaren Vale | 2017 |  V  VG

Mitolo’s Jester wines are vibrant, expressive and approachable, made using the younger fruit from their vineyards. This wine has aromas of ripe blood plum and blackberry, complemented by savoury notes of black olives and smokiness, from 18 months of ageing in old French barrels. A lovely hint of mocha to finish.

Red | Mitolo Jester | Cabernet Sauvignon | McLaren Vale | 2017 |  V  VG

The Cabernet Sauvignon is made with a nod to founder Frank Mitolo’s Italian roots. 20% of the grapes are left to dry for seven weeks in the traditional Amarone manner to concentrate flavour. Signature aromas of blackcurrant, menthol and tobacco leaf are enhanced with a liqueur Morello cherry character from the dried grapes..

Red | Dandelion ‘Menagerie of the Barossa’ | Grenache/Shiraz/Mataro | Barossa | 2017

In the words of co-founder Zar Brooks, “At the end of the old vine garden path, there is a historic ‘menagerie’ of three grape varieties”. This classic Barossa blend from three adjoining blocks offers an intriguing mix of rose petals, red fruits, berries and a hint of cinnamon and Asian spices.
