Daniel's Top Picks - An unexpecting Gem!
Still rich, ripe, primary fruit driven nose with strong cassis notes and appealing chocolate characters. Likewise flavours of blackberry and chocolate on the palate with a medium bodied weight. Tannins are now velvety and fine and add to the appeal as this wine has softened over the last decade. Appropriately, has a good length of flavour and will sit well on the dinner table with most meat dishes. Well balanced and still a good 5 years left of pleasurable drinking in this wine. Biased, yes but for me, this is a perfect example of what happens when your wine is stored in the right conditions from release to table. From 2001, an unexpecting gem that will surely impress!

Fox Creek-Reserve-Cabernet Sauvignon-2000-750mL

Strong bright rim with a mid-deep red core.

The hints of blackcurrant and blackberry are typical characters of this variety. Typically McLaren Vale produces a dark, spicy chocolate character in Cabernet and this is evident. However, this wine has fascinating aromas of mint, leather and dark cherries. The oak shows when the wine is first poured, but with a little time in the glass yields to give a subtle cinnamon, char and cherry combination.

As a young wine, the palate is a little tight. The cherry and chocolate come through as does a blackberry fruit character. The tannin and acidity are firm, but balanced for a wine that will drink well when young, preferably with food. It will develop further complexity with cellaring.

Torbreck-The Steading-Grenache Shiraz Mataro-2002-750mL

The melding of the three traditional Barossa varieties creates a tremendously complex and rewarding wine.

 

The Grenache and Mataro are from old bush vines that are pruned in the traditional ‘goblet’ style to a limited number of buds, reducing yields and promoting flavour and colour concentration. Only the free run component of the Shiraz is used in the blend to allow the Grenache identity to shine through.

Two Hands-Max's Garden-Shiraz-2003-750mL

Bright red colour with magenta hues. Vibrant spice and cherries on the nose with a hint of chocolate smoky oak. The palate shows bright, elegant red fleshy fruit with subtle hints of cedary spice, wrapped up in a very tight fine tannin structure.
