2012 St Hugo Cabernet Sauvignon Coonawarra
Regrettably this bottle was under cork which showed some signs of wine travel into two areas of the cork approx 1cm from the base. The wine had an overpowering bouquet of mould and the same on the palate rendering it undrinkable. Fortunately, when returned to the store of purchase, Dan Murphy's didn't hesitate to replace it with two bottles of the 2016 vintage under screw cap.

2016 Wendouree Malbec Clare Valley

Subtle cedar, plums and toffee on the nose. Juicy plums, black cherries, liquorice, tobacco, vanilla bean, toffee and hints of raspberry. Impeccable balance; bright and lively with a superb acid spine that helps lift the flavours on the finish. Superfine sandy tannins. Medium bodied and very approachable now, but likely to age for many years. A superb wine and among the best Wendouree wines I’ve had.

2016 Adelina Shiraz Mataro Clare Valley Red Rhone Blend

Medium plus ruby. Medium plus aromas of perfumed oak and blackcurrant and dark chocolate. Hints of stewed rhubarb. On the palate the wine is medium acidity, medium plus alcohol, medium plus tannin, medium bodied, long length. Lashings of chocolate. This is a lovely wine - perhaps better than the straight Shiraz which is itself a wonderful wine. Years to go.
