Vasarelli Vineyards Family Reserve Mclaren Vale Shiraz 2016
Pat and Vicki Vasarelli don't make wine, but they grow some of the best grapes in South Australia's historic McLaren Vale district - and they also host some of the region's best lunches, using home-cured hams and salamis prepared according to recipes handed down through their Italian family. The 'Family Reserve' label is used only when the vintage is exceptional.
Hawkesbridge Reserve Marlborough Pinot Gris 2017
This wowed the Tasting Panel as soon as the bottle was opened and quickly made the Wine of the Year Finalist list. It has classic super-ripe pear and baked apple aromas are backed by an intriguing suggestion of spicy shortbread. It has been made just off-dry, but there is an impressive amount of fruit concentration on the palate along with the variety's typically complex, oily texture. It's destined for greatness.
Cape Campbell Marlborough Chardonnay 2016
Loads of personality, wild, butterscotch and citrus, spicy oak and great length.
