95 Points - Stuart McCloskey “I love the bouquet which invites you in to clove, cinnamon, cacao nibs, coffee, garrigue, warm earth, dark cherry and cola. The palate is medium-bodied, supremely fresh and takes you down a blood orange path which appeals to me. Bright and frisky with oodles of white pepper and savoury spice. Fleshy, tensile, immensely satisfying and displays fine clarity with a spicy cut and thrust finish. Wait a minute or two and blood orange gently creeps back in. Just lovely. Drink now to 2026 (ish). Served using Zalto Bordeaux glassware. Decant for a few hours…”

Winemaker: “Rhubarb and plum give warmth and depth to the mid palate. Fine, grown tannins balance and give structure to the generous fruit character. A touch of liquorice and coffee oak notes add to and enrich the palate. The wine shows great persistence and complexity on the finish. A great example of dry grown Victorian Shiraz that will age with distinction for many years.”

Zalto Denk-Art Bordeaux Glass

Our next delivery of Zalto is expected to arrive Mid-Late April 2022.

The Zalto Bordeaux glass is recommended for weightier style reds, probably our most widely used glass when tasting in house, this glass is great for many different wines. The large bowl helping aerate and soften tannins whilst accentuating the wine's depth and concentration. The Bordeaux glass is the ideal choice for Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Zinfandel, Bordeaux or Rhône style blends and many other red wines. Surprisingly, it is also the glass of choice for oaked Chardonnay, the shape of the bowl accentuating the balance of ripe fruits and oak.

Buy wines from Victoria, Australia

Despite being the second smallest state in Australia, Victoria is home to over 600 wineries, more than any other wine-producing state. However, Victoria does not produce the most wine, as rather than producing mass quantities of cheaper wine, its wineries tend to be smaller and more boutique in style. The cool climate here is produced by the coastal areas and this means that a wide range of wines can be made, from stunningly complex Chardonnay and delicate Pinot Noir in the Yarra Valley, to savoury and rich Shiraz from Heathcote and iconic fortified wines from Rutherglen.

Victoria is fast becoming one of our favourite regions with many new producers joining us from here, including Shadowfax, Mulline, and Eastern Peake.
