Tasting Notes

Riolite Vini Sangiovese Nero d'Avola e Corvina The Blend

Intense and concentrated ruby red colour. Bouquet of ripe red fruit on a spicy background. On the palate it enhances all its freshness with just and balanced tannins accompanied by a long persistence.


Mary Davine Wines Barossa Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

The vineyard is located on the South Eastern reaches of Eden Valley with an altitude of just over 500 metres – ensuring a long slow ripening season. As one of Australia’s premier viticulture regions we are consistently provided with exceptional fruit of great colour and depth of flavour.


Borgo Al Passo Sangiovese Merlot IGT Toscana 2016

Colour Bright and brilliant ruby red. Good structure, soft wine with intense aroma and hints of fresh fruit. 


The Colonial Estate Exile Barossa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Bright and opulent purple in colour. The bouquet is elegantly proportioned with obvious varietal characters of ripe blackcurrant fruit infused with mint, fresh herbs, earth and plum. Wonderful density and depth to the aromatics, which reveal really profound Cabernet Sauvignon character. Fruit driven highlighted by pure plum flavour which is a highlight of Cabernet Sauvignon this year. The intense varietal characters along with some spice ensure a powerful mid palate. Lively with a great core and backbone, the oak is well integrated and compliments but doesn’t dominate. Well-rounded smooth tannins make this one of the most Moorish Cabernet Sauvignon we have produced. 


The Wine Barossa Valley Marananga Shiraz 2016

Purple and crimson with a dense centre and a youthful edge. Blackberries, mulberries and cherries with hints of charred oak. There is plenty going on with black cherries, vanilla, and some saddle leather characters. The fruit is quite solid yet repressed by the oak and tannin. Will lay down well with some time in the cellar, fruit will prevail creating an elegant, savoury style of wine.


Einzellage 100 Year Old Vine Valley Floor Barossa Valley Grenache 2017

Lovely purple colour with red hue. A bright, red cherry, blueberry and cranberry packed nose. Light to medium bodied the bouquet doesn’t let you down as your met with overwhelming fruit flavours of blueberry and cherry, its back with some herbal notes and finishing with soft tannin which round everything up provided a wine only describable as beautifully pretty.


Penfolds Bin 389 South Australia Cabernet Shiraz 2016

Deep dark magenta colour. A first impression of dark fruits and chocolate, splashed by spices – cinnamon, vanillin pod, cola. Then, a transient umami dabble – via cues of Worcestershire sauce/smoked Barossa bacon/beef cube. To follow, a bruléed lift mirrored by scents of toasted brioche, soaked oats. Intriguingly different, yet still Bin 389, albeit young/evolving at this perusal at an early stage. Expansive, explosive, exotic…a Bin 389 triple-ex palate rating! A wave/surge of fruits and spice unleashed – propelled by tomato and tahini paste flavours. Juicy, succulent tannins engulf, alongside oak – adding volume, density. Mouth-coating in every sense. Long and lingering.


Chain of Ponds Section 400 Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir 2017

Deep cherry red with a light garnet hue. Intensely complex nose with plums entwined with spice and the earthiness of beetroot while having fresh fruit lift of dark cherry and rhubarb. A touch of fennel and dried herbs helps give a lift and balance to sweeter fruits. On the palate there is generous fruit weight displaying cherry, satsuma plum and blackberry fruits. This is integrated with beetroot, rhubarb and lifted spices. Full bodied with firm, slightly textural but velvety tannins and balanced acidity, great fruit length with good savouriness. 


The Perfect Storm McLaren Vale Shiraz 2017

Opaque purple/black. Concentrated black fruit flavours highlighted by blackberry, plum, dark chocolate and espresso. This wine is much like a perfect storm; Inspiring fear or respect through being impressively large, powerful, intense, capable yet complex and mysterious. The palate is in a word smooth and focused with a big whack of blackberry and plum initially which is woven through the backbone of the wine whilst more subtle notes of dark chocolate, pepper and oak whilst firm tannins provide another layer of complexity right through to the finish.


Gnadenfrei Estate St Michaels Barossa Valley Shiraz 2016

Dense deep purple-red in colour. Intense dark plum, blackberry, licorice, prune and oak. A big bold Barossa Shiraz in every aspect and unashamedly so. Black fruits dominate balanced out by savoury tannins and deep melted chocolate and oak.

Borgo Al Passo Sangiovese Merlot IGT Toscana 2016

98 Points Luca Maroni 

"Sensations: exceptional richness, this wine reveals itself as dense and full-bodied - the essence of morello cherry pulp, blackberry and grape. A sublime concentration but the taste is soft and supple; very admirable and harmonious... A pure wine, well balanced with hints of spice, the juicy fruit has exceptional expressive power. One of the best red wines of the year, hats off."

93 Points Alessandro Righetti

With its richness of extract and its pleasant drink the "Corte al Passo" is a real treat! It enchants the eyes with its intense garnet red and seduces the nose with its scent of berries, cherries and spices. On the palate this Sangiovese with the addition of a small percentage of Merlot grapes is straightforward and enveloping, with sweetish aromas that recall those of the bouquet and which are accompanied by hints of chocolate and aromatic herbs. A soft tannin and a harmonious finish complete the profile

Penfolds Bin 389 South Australia Cabernet Shiraz 2016

96 Points James Halliday Wine Companion 

A 51/49% blend from the Barossa Valley, Coonawarra, McLaren Vale, Padthaway and Wrattonbully, matured for 12 months in American hogsheads (37% new). Good colour, although not as striking as some of the other wines in the range; Likewise retains some elegance despite the clarion call of the cascade of fruit flavours. The fruit, oak, tannin and acid balance is impeccable, as is the length and drive of the palate. The savoury subtext is equally good.

96 Points Huon Hooke, The Real Review

Deep, dense red/purple colour, with a bouquet of rich spice and chocolate and dark fruit aromas all well-balanced in the mix. The berries of cabernet and the earthy/spice of shiraz are both identifiable. It's a very full-bodied, rich, dense, concentrated wine, with lashings of tannins which are firm and gripping on the finish. A very long carry. A very big wine, massively structured and impressive, with great power and ageing potential. A wine that manages to tread the fine line between big structure and softness and accessibility. Still, I would cellar it a few years before broaching. (51% cabernet sauvignon, 49% shiraz) Drink 2021 to 2046

96 Points Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front 

Bin 389 cracks the ton, in asking price terms. The rich (wo)man’s, poor (wo)man’s drink. Grapes sourced from Barossa Valley, Coonawarra, McLaren Vale, Padthaway and Wrattonbully. You don’t hear so much of Padthaway, that salty old dog, nowadays but it’s still important to the Penfolds red wine stable. 51% cabernet sauvignon, 49% shiraz. All American oak. Ah now you’ve done it. Stop it, just stop it. You look at the Bin 407 release from this vintage and think: that’s how it’s done. And then you add shiraz, and call it Bin 389, and the palate is boosted, the length is still there, the tobacco notes still light up, and with vanilla and cherry-plum notes tickling the cassis into a riot it suddenly feels irrepressible, like the premiership’s a cakewalk. It’s not a John Holmes wine; it’s not overdone. It’ a wine to slip through your defences, is what it is. It’s a cracker. This is why you blend cabernet with shiraz.

96 points James Suckling

The personality of this warmer-vintage Bin 389 is big, bold and welcoming. Coal smoke and graphite intertwine with blackberry, cassis, woody and leafy notes. Some Chinese five spice, too. The palate is delivered with fine, sweeping and long, smooth tannins that carry a supple array of mainly blackberry and roasted-coffee flavors. Powerful yet silky, super long and smooth, building to an exceptionally tidy finish. This is an assembly of 51 per cent cabernet sauvignon and 49 per cent shiraz, sourced from Barossa Valley, Coonawarra, McLaren Vale, Padthaway and Wrattonbully. Long aging potential. Drink now or hold.

95 Points Andrew Caillard Master of Wine 

Medium deep colour. Classical Bin 389 with fresh blackcurrant, blackberry, dark chocolate aromas and roasted chestnut, mocha notes. Deep set dark chocolate, elderberry, blackcurrant fruits , plentiful fine chocolatey textures, lovely mid palate buoyancy and mocha, roasted coconut oak complexity. Finishes long and fruit sweet with a bitter firm chocolatey plume.

94 points Decanter

The so-called ‘Baby Grange’, Bin 389 is a Penfolds icon and a peerless example of the traditional Aussie blend. It's matured for 12 months in American oak, partly in previous-vintage Grange casks. Behind the youthful ruby hue lies a terrific red whose gently smoky, spicy cedar and liquorice aromas are highly perfumed and intense. On the palate it shows a promising youthful vigour in its richly concentrated, opulent cassis and blackberry fruit. It has a fine, smooth texture, with chocolatey depth, good complexity and spice aplenty, all supported by a fine spine of damson acidity and the sinewy tannin structure that awaits instructions to settle down. One for bollito misto and salsa verde.

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2016 Cabernet / Shiraz Bin 389 is a blend of 51% Cabernet and 49% Shiraz, the least amount of Cabernet you'll ever see in this bottling. It's dark and stolid, with notes of cassis and blackberry along with touches of vanilla and cedar. Full-bodied and dense, it's firmly in the Penfolds style and the style of this particular bottling, which always ages well, even if it's not the flashiest or most flamboyant offering from Penfolds.


Chain of Ponds Section 400 Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir 2017

93 Points James Halliday Wine Companion 

Complex multi-parcel vinification has put the seal on an almost unbelievable deal. 80% crushed and destemmed, 20% split 50/50% crushed and whole bunches, part open-fermented in stainless steel, part in a Potter fermenter with minimal cap management, Burgundy yeast to enhance varietal character, 7 days on skins, 60% pressed to French oak (7% new), the balance matured in stainless steel It has all you could ask for, with strong cherry fruit, texture and structure.

Riolite Vini Sangiovese Nero d'Avola e Corvina The Blend

From a selection of the best grapes harvested between the first and third week of October, carefully de- stemmed are vinified in modern stainless steel tanks, with maceration on the skins for an average duration of 15-18 days at a temperature of about 26 ° centigrade. Once the alcoholic fermentation is complete, the wine carries out the malolactic fermentation. After 6 months of aging the blend is made between the three grapes and the bottling.

Sangiovese, Nero d ́Avola e Corvina


Mary Davine Wines Barossa Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Planted in 1970 (48 years ago) Only local knowledge, a firm hand-shake deal and an outrageous cash exchange allowed us to secure a small parcel this sumptuous fruit. And even then I have to keep it secret. If the other producers find out the vineyard owner will be in trouble and that the end of the fruit.

The unique micro-climate ensures long slow flavour development. Delivering an intensity of concentration and length rarely found anywhere else in the Barossa.

The fruit is harvested in the cool of the night to retain flavour and freshness before destemming and inoculation with specific rare yeast – a Italian strain that specifically ferments at cool temperatures.

It only serves to enhance the natural fruit flavours.

The ferments are undertaken in traditional 1 ton open fermenters for 8 days, each day the fruit is hand plunged pushing the skins under the fermenting juice to assist in great colour and flavour development of the wine. Once a day the juice is drained from the fermenter and then returned over the skins. With approximately 2 Baume the fermenting wine is drained from the fermenter and the skins basket pressed by hand. Total extraction is limited to a maximum of 500 litres per ton – extremely lower compared to an industry average of 750 litres per ton.

The fermenting wine is gravity transferred into a mixture of new and 3 year old French and American hogsheads to complete primary fermentation and malolactic fermentation. Upon completion the wine is racked and returned to mature for a minimum period of 21 months.


Borgo Al Passo Sangiovese Merlot IGT Toscana 2016

The Nistri family are Sangiovese specialists and Corte Al Passo is a wine made in the ancient 'Governo’ style; meaning that a small proportion of the grapes are dried before being added to the wine in November - just like Amarone.

Two collections are made; the first occurs in the first week of September, the other in the second decade of October in order to increase the sugars and make a slight overripe. 

The grapes are carefully de-stemmed in modern stainless steel tanks, with maceration on the skins for an average duration of 25-30 days at a temperature of about 26 ° C. It ages in second-cycle barriques for 6 months and a further 6- month aging in bottle. 

Located at an altitude of 300 meters s.l.m. with south / west exposure. Vineyards of new and old plant with an average density of 5,000 plants per hectare. 

Varieties: 85% Sangiovese 15% Merlot 


The Colonial Estate Exile Barossa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Sourced from a small block in the Seppeltsfield region of the Barossa. The vines that make up Exile were pruned severely and as a result of this and minimal water they produce extremely small yields. Exile grapes are all hand picked and the grapes are selected in individual batches by winemaker and vigneron. The grapes are harvested then transported to the winery where they are de-stemmed and crushed individually to small static fermenters. Fermentation was brought on by the use of select yeast strains and the temperatures peaked at 28 degrees before chilling back to 20 degrees for the completion of fermentation. The fermenters were pumped over 3 times daily to ensure the perfect amount of colour and tannin was extracted from the skins. A small percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon was allowed to stay on skins for a week of additional maceration after the ferments were complete. The batches were then pressed into new French barrels where they under went malolatic fermentation and are then aged for 18 months before final barrel selection, blending and bottled with minimal filtration.


The Wine Barossa Valley Marananga Shiraz 2016

Hand selected and hand picked fruit was used for this wine and it underwent fermentation in stainless steel open top fermenters, and was pumped over twice a day, the wine was pressed then transferred to new hogshead barrels where it completed its malolactic fermentation. The wine was topped regularly and racked once whilst maturing in barrel.


Einzellage 100 Year Old Vine Valley Floor Barossa Valley Grenache 2017

Sourced From One Of Barossa Valleys Most Revered Growers from a single vineyard located on the outskirts of Tanunda on the Valley Floor from a vineyard which just celebrated its 100th birthday. Fruit was picked in early hours of morning when temperatures were at their lowest for the day to ensure fruit remained crisp whilst being transported to winery. The grapes were destalked and placed uncrushed into small stainless steel open top fermenters. Cultured yeast was used to start fermentation and the tanks were hand plunged spending 7 days on skins at 26 degrees. The skins we gently pressed and we kept the wine in tank to create a virgin style of Grenache to retain fleshy fruit flavours then bottled with minimal filtration and no fining.


Chain of Ponds Section 400 Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir 2017

Fruit for the Section 400 Pinot Noir is sourced from two Adelaide Hills vineyards and three blocks. A combination of east and west (Kuitpo) and north facing slopes (Gumeracha) with different clonal material (MV6, D4V2, D5V12, 777, 114) to produce distinctly different fruit flavours which combine to complement each other in the final wine. All vineyards are managed with strict VSP trellis. 

All bar 20% of the grapes were crushed and de-stemmed soon after receival and soaked for 48 hours before inoculation, the remaining 20% was fermented as 50% wholebunch and 50% crushed fruit. The blocks were partially fermented in a combination of open fermenters with extended maceration and the balance fermented in potters using minimal cap management. Fermented with a varietal enhancing burgundian yeast to preserve the fresh primary fruit aromas of Pinot Noir and stabilise colour. It was pressed off skins after 7 days of fermentation and transferred straight into French oak 60% (7% New) with the balance remaining in stainless to preserve freshness. Malo-lactic fermentation was completed while in oak and stainless and the wine was left on full lees for 6 months to gain complexity and mouthfeel during the ageing process. 


The Perfect Storm McLaren Vale Shiraz 2017

The Perfect Storm Vineyard as we have dubbed it sits high in the McLaren Vale ranges with a perfect vantage point to view the many storms that sweep in from Gulf St Vincent across the McLaren Vale region. We have hand crafted a Shiraz by hand picking fruit, crushing and fermenting in small batches and allowing extended time on skins to ensure luscious fruit flavours prevail. Following on from fermentation the wine was pressed and aged in American barrique barrels for 12 months prior to bottling with minimal filtration.

Allow it to breathe if drinking early, this wine is built to last and I expect to be drinking it over the next decade.


Gnadenfrei Estate St Michaels Barossa Valley Shiraz 2016

Despite well below average rainfall and warm conditions during the growing season, our vines produced another outstanding vintage. Heavy rainfall in late January followed by ongoing mild days and cool nights allowed ideal ripening conditions. The fruit then matured with an early harvest. The resultant 2016 wines are outstanding and feature lifted pure red fruit characteristics, savoury tannins, great depth of flavour and sheer colour intensity. Select Old Vine Barossa Shiraz sourced from vines aged 50-80 years were used in this wine. Traditional winemaking techniques were employed and the fruit was handled in a gentle hands off approach to ensure the vineyard remained the hero. This Shiraz was matured for 16 months in 1 and 2 year old oak hogshead barrels (75% French 15% American). 

Upon release allow the wine to breathe for at least a couple of hours, this wine is built to last and should drink well for the next 10-15 years.
