Perfect for Easter!
Bin 28 Kalimna Shiraz –
Multi-district blend, South Australia. Significant contributions from Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, Clare Valley and Langhorne Creek.
15 months in older American hogsheads.
Stainless steel fermenters with wooden header boards.
Bin 289 Shiraz –
Known as “Baby Grange” as components of it are matured in the same barrels that held the previous vintage of Grange.
Vibrant red to purple in the glass it displays rich, lifted dark fruit, dried herb, spice and licorice aromas. The palate flows on from the nose with a ripe mix of juicy black fruit flavours, mocha and anise with a solid tannin structure and great length. A very good vintage and one for the cellar.
Bin 407 Cabernet Sauvignon –
Multi-district blend, South Australia/Western Australia including Bordertown (SA), Padthaway (SA), Coonawarra (SA), Robe (SA), McLaren Vale (SA), Clare Valley (SA), Barossa Valley (SA), Wrattonbully (SA) and Margaret River (WA).
12 months in new French and American (approximately 30%) oak. Also 1- and 2-year-old hogsheads – some of which were used for previous vintages of Bin 707.
Stainless steel fermenters with wooden header boards. Some components complete fermentation in barrel.
RWT Barossa Valley Shiraz –
Barossa Valley, South Australia.
12–15 months in (50–70% new) French oak hogsheads (300 litres).
Stainless steel tanks with wax-lined/wooden header boards. Fermentation completed in barrel. The odd components vinified at Magill Estate in some years, e.g. Kalimna Block 3C and Gallasch material.
Le Dix de Los Vascos
This is a wine of exceptional complexity, balance and elegance, with powerful tannins and aromas of very ripe fruit accentuated by spicy notes of cedar, laurel and eucalyptus.
Seña is an authentic Chilean blend made from the finest Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenere, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot varieties. The Carmenere variety adds an evident Chilean personality to the wine.
Happy Easter to all!
