GROSSET wines available to BUY NOW

SHADOWFAX wines available to BUY NOW
It takes more than just vineyard site and winemaking process to make something meaningful and different. The sheer quality and definition of both the 2001 One Eye Shiraz and 2001 Pink Cliffs Shiraz reflect an intense collaboration between Andrew Tedder and Matt Harrop. When wine reaches this kind of plain it almost becomes a form of alchemy.
TORBRECK wines available to BUY NOW
Torbreck is a revelation. The winemaking philosophy is suitably offbeat, with strong ideas about the effects of ultra-violet and polymerising of tannins, gravitational pull and the phases of the moon and their effects on fermentation speed and Baume levels. This is a marvellously eccentric little place doing its own thing – and it’s all paying off. From a secondary market perspective, Torbreck has gone from 0 to 600kmh in 60 seconds. Not bad for a knock-about bloke in search of his own nirvana.
TURKEY FLAT wines available to BUY NOW
Turkey Flat Shiraz is becoming increasingly popular on the secondary market. In the context of Barossa Shiraz it offers strong regional provenance at a more affordable level.
XANADU wines available to BUY NOW
Xanadu is going through tremendous changes that could influence market perceptions. The Reserve is a superior wine to the standard Cabernet Sauvignon and deserves to be followed. It shows plenty of regional definition and structure to go the full distance.
YALUMBA wines available to BUY NOW
A lineage of three decades, proven cellaring potential, immense resources and a good winemaking team are all hallmarks of potential success. Yalumba Octavius is emerging as a very strong performer with quality rungs on the board. Yalumba’s investment in the sublime grape variety Viognier has resulted in the super-fine Virgilius. It challenges the notion that great wine has to be a cellaring proposition. Yalumba is an exciting producer with a clear eye on the cult and fine wine market.
