PEEL ESTATE

The winery receives a coveted 4½ star rating in
James Halliday’s  Wine Companion..

The Chenin Blanc is one of Australia’s most extraordinary white wines with a huge peachy nose and charry wood aromas.
This is a wine that will age for over ten years and develops wonderful complexity in the bottle.  The Verdelho is just about my favourite white wine. Unoaked, it has delectable greengage and lime fruit with elegant acidity.

Three quite stunning reds that are only available in tiny quantities as the wine has achieved a cult status in Australia. The Cabernet Sauvignon is made in a classic French style and Will rates the 2001 as one of the best he has ever made. Aged in French oak, it has awonderful integration of fruit and wood. The flagship Shiraz has an astonishing structure and concentration of flavour: allspice, cloves and intense black fruit. Both reds can be drunk from now to 2025

GRANT BURGE - Barossa Valley

He is the largest private landowner in the area, but never makes any sacrifice in the quality of his wine.  ‘Old Vine Shiraz’, his ‘black monster’ flagship wine: quite stunning. The Holy Trinity – his ‘hommage’ to Châteauneuf -  has proved an enormous success and is a blend of classic Rhône varieties: Grenache, Shiraz and Mataro.

TRENTHAM ESTATE

Since listing these wines for the first time at the end of 2002, we havebeen amazed at the success we have had with them. The Murphy family were pioneer  winemakers in the Murray River Valley and their vineyards now spread over 50 hectares. After spending 11 years at Mildara Blass, Anthony Murphy returned to the family estate as winemaker and they now win numerous medals. Fabulous value are the entry point Big River wines. For something unusual, try the Trentham Noble Taminga, a complex, botrytised blend of Riesling, Traminer and Ferrano (the what?)

De Bortoli Wines  -  Victoria

The De Bortoli family have been making award-winning wines since 1928.  Their famous Deen Vat Durif is a chocolate monster of a wine: rich and full-bodied. The La Bohème series is a tribute to the Yarra Valley’s own Dame Nellie Melba, who enchanted the world as Mimi in Puccini’s opera. Both wines are elegant blends that combine a hint of the exotic with mainstream fruit characteristics. The Show Liqueur Muscat is glorious: a mouthful of raisins, coffee and caramel.
