Mclean's Farm Master Barossa Shiraz 2012
Bob McLean only released The Master Shiraz in years that offer exceptional Barossa fruit - and 2012 was just such a year.

Black Wattle Icon Mt Benson Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
"A wine to settle in with. It flows and struts, is easy to take and is demanding all at once. It tastes of blackcurrant, boysenberry, fresh mint and smoky oak, and comes complete with a sheer shift of assertive tannin. Nothing though feels out of place; it all teams and talks as one. Balanced wines always drink well young; so too this. But it has a long life ahead." 96 points, James Halliday Australian Wine Companion.
Moss Wood Amy's Red 2013
Combines the blueberry and blackcurrant fruit characters of Yallingup with violets and redcurrant from Cowaramup, generous fruit depth with soft oak influence providing a toasty, spicy background.
Xanadu Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
