125 Gimblett Road Gimblett Gravels Merlot Cabernets 2016
2016 was a very good season in Hawkes Bay with a typically dry summer. A perfect season to produce delicious, ripe and robust red varietals. This is a Merlot predominant blend that includes smaller proportions of other varieties to add further complexity and palate interest.
Rare Print Series Bendigo Shiraz 2013
The Rare Print Series of wines are made from hand-crafted small parcels that showcase the relationship between site and variety. This richly flavoured Bendigo Shiraz is filled with cherry berry fruit combined with integrated oak, giving it a complex tannin finish. It's great with red meat dishes, but our pick is grilled kangaroo fillet hot off the barbecue.
Stonyfell Black Label Langhorne Creek Cabernet Shiraz 2015
In this seamless pairing of the finest parcels of Langhorne Creek Cabernet and Shiraz, winemaker Nigel Dolan showcases his expertise as one of the country's most respected winemakers. Fleshy, dark berry fruits, savoury notes, fine-grained velvety tannins and integrated oak intermingle effortlessly in the glass. It's testament to this label's 2011 Red Wine of the Year title.
