A Gold-medal ‘Grand’ Barossa GSM from ‘the birthplace of the Barossa as Château Tanunda has been called. It was established in 1890 and is the
site of some of the Valley’s first vines planted as well as its first winery.
From a hugely talented winemaker, this is a full flavoured blockbuster with a weighty 15% punch
The Full Fifteen is a huge, black red that's velvet smooth and immensely drinkable from day one. The 2019 is as rewarding as ever - so rich and fruit packed, it's like two bottles crammed into one. It's made by the talented Jo Nash - she's a master of making big reds that hugely impress.
“The single vineyard is in the Vine Vale district... the flavours running from red to black, the tannins fine, the texture good. The wine has balance and elegance encountered once in a blue moon with an alcohol of 15.5%... 95pts. Great Value” (Halliday).
Taste the famous Scarpantoni Brothers Block Cabernet here!
The 2006 vintage of this wine won the Jimmy Watson. When winemaker Filippo Scarpantoni accepted the award, he said the wine was designed to "show the power and the strength and the fruit of McLaren Vale Cabernet.” It certainly did that. As does this concentrated 2013 vintage here!
A 90pt Merlot as smooth as the rolling hills from which it came
"A conflation of mint, red and blackcurrant and gently astringent tannins, following 10 months in French oak (20% new)... 90pts" (Halliday). Tight grain French oak gives spice and depth to what is a smooth brambly and juicy red fruit beauty. Well-balanced in every way.
A special homage of old-vine McLaren Vale Grenache
The 100 year old dry grown Grenache vines are located at Dogridge vineyard in McLaren Vale. The vines are low yeilding but each bunch provides a concentrated array of flavours from ripe cherries to plums and blackberries.
