Wendouree Shiraz Mataro 2016

A blend of 60% Shiraz & 40% Mataro. Dark, brooding, minty spices and meaty bbq notes. Powerful, raw and seductive. Cellar up to 25 years.

93 Points; Gary Walsh; The Wine Front, "I love the meaty hazelnut thing that Mataro brings to the table, and that umami character is strong here. Blackberry, some spice, mint chocolate, camphor in the background. Medium to full-bodied, quite chunky and tannic, perhaps a little raw and blocky, furry maybe, at least within the frame of reference for the 2016 Cabernet / Malbec wines from Wendouree. Acidity is fresh, cool and fine, though the tannin clumps on the finish a little. It’s somewhat primal, and primary. Unresolved, though I suspect time may treat it well. Let’s see. Tasted: Jul 18; Alcohol: 13.7%; Closure: Screwcap; Drink: 2023-2036

Chateau Prieure-Lichine Margaux 2015

A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot & Petit Verdot from AOC Margaux.

Neil Martin - The Wine Advocate - (88-90 points) - "The 2015 Prieuré-Lichine has a tightly wound bouquet, crisp and a little leaner than some of its Margaux compadres. It just feels contained at the moment. The palate is medium-bodied with gruff tannin on the entry. There is respectable depth here, but it feels linear and rather predictable towards the blackberry and cedar finish. I would like to see more complexity and personality come through by the time of bottling. It feels a bit bolshie at the moment."

Jancis Robinson - 16.5/20 - "Purplish crimson. Intense savoury perfume. Not that much sweetness on the palate; some inkines on the end. Dry finish. Far from the most charming but a decent effort. Chewy and solid."

Il Palazzone Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2010

95 points - James Suckling - December 1, 2014 - "Wonderful texture to this Brunello with so much dried fruit, chalk, stone, salt and light chocolate character. It's full body, fine tannins and bright acidity delivers a complete package with beauty and elegance. Better in 2016."

93 points - Monica Larner - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (#217 Feb 2015) - "The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino is aged for 41 months in large oak casks to produce nicely evolved aromas of dried cherry, smoked ham, prune, plum, licorice and grilled herb. The wine shows well both in terms of intensity and purity of varietal fruit and that slow oxidative process in wood has allowed for extra aromatic depth and definition. After a few minutes in the glass, the wine warms to show fruit-heavy flavors of cherry and forest fruit. The is a Brunello of elegance and poise that should hold well for the next decade or longer. Drink 2016 - 2028."
