- Rockford Basket Press Shiraz 1998 – Direct from Rockford Cellars – Rockford “Basket Press” Shiraz 1998 sits amongst Australia’s most iconic and most sought after wines. This is a “Winemakers Release” (stored at Rockford) until July 2018, it has been perfectly cellared and ready to be consumed or put away in your cellar for a few more years to come. I tried this wine in July 2018…it is in such good condition. Chocolate, dark plums, coffee, spices…long and lush but seamlessly structured with slick black berry and silky tannins. It’s always well worth buying Rockford Basket Press Shiraz but this one, cellared so well, is a gem.
- Rockford Sparkling Black Shiraz (1991) – Disgorged 2016 – Direct from Rockford Cellars – Rockford “Black” Sparkling Shiraz is regarded by some as Australia’s best Sparkling Shiraz…the jury might be out on that one but it is certainly amongst Australia’s most iconic. This spent 15 years on lees in the bottle prior to disgorgement in 2016 upon which time that classic rich Rockford liqueur (which is aged fortified Shiraz) is added and the cork pressed into place. This is a “Winemakers Release” (stored at Rockford) until July 2018, it has been perfectly cellared and ready to be consumed or put away in your cellar for a few more years to come. It’s a serious fizz. It’s dark, lush and brooding palate flavours with creamy bubbles and constant tannin grip make it well worth seeking Rockford Black Sparkling Shiraz.
- Cullen Diana Madeline Cabernet 2016 – 98 Points – James Halliday – “93% cabernet sauvignon, 5% merlot, 1% each of malbec and petit verdot, matured for 14 months in French barriques (67% new). Elegance personified, no compromise likewise. Then rack up extraordinary attention to detail, and the Wilyabrup district, the greatest part of the Margaret River. Given these parameters, the fluid grace of this beautiful wine might seem almost inevitable. But, of course, it’s not – it’s the distillation of two generations.”
