PREMIUM RELEASES.       
 
Ramsay Black Shiraz 2011 McLaren Vale
The wine was matured in new French and American Oak (60%) and 1-3 year old Seasoned French Oak (40%) for 15 months. ‘Black’ in colour with dark fruit flavours and aromas, spice and dark chocolate with fine smooth tannins. The wine can be enjoyed now, but the complex fruit flavours will develop significantly with bottle age, rewarding patient cellaring for up to 10 years.

Joanna Shiraz 2012 Wrattonbully
A lush, rich wine, full bodied with intense fruit flavours and the distinctive characters of the region. This premium release will benefit from patient, careful cellaring, as it will develop significantly with bottle age for up to 10 years. Drink up to 2020.

Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 Wrattonbully 

More from Mosquito Creek – by now you will have worked out they are the source for all our Wrattonbully wines. As we do, the best of the barrels selected for bottling.  Full-bodied, intense flavours.   More tannic early, but will last and last, improving all the way – 10 years plus with good cellaring.

Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 Wrattonbully 
"Barrel Selection" We selected only the very best barrels to produce a wine to rival our multi-award winning Cabernets from previous vintages. Low yielding crop, from the classic ‘terra rossa over limestone soil’, hand picked, controlled ferment and aged for nearly 2 years in seasoned and new French oak barrels. Still very new, the wine is one to cellar, where it will develop and mature significantly with bottle age to a full bodied wine with intense berry fruit flavours and an elegant, smooth finish. Drink up to 2022.

Pinot Noir 2016 Adelaide Hills
From the excellent 2016 vintage, the grapes from the cool climate Adelaide Hills, were aged in new and seasoned French Oak barrels for 12 months. The wine has solid fruit flavours, unlike many Pinots which can tend to be a bit thin.  bright colour and concentrated cherry, plum and raspberry flavours with a touch of spice.

G. S. M. 2017 McLaren Vale      
This blend has become a specialty of McLaren Vale and the 2017 is a blend of 43% Shiraz, 43% Grenache, 14% Mourvèdre, with grapes from old bush vines. The Shiraz tends to be more dominant early with the Grenache influence coming a little later and the Mourvèdre softening the wine, giving a wine with excellent balanced acid and tannins.

Rosé - 2018 McLaren Vale  

A blend of 15% Shiraz and 85% Grenache.  A fresh, clean Rosé, light in colour and quite dry, similar to last year, but retaining the soft berry fruit flavours. Enjoy all year round, but particularly in the warmer summer months served chilled.

Riesling 2018 Clare Valley – Watervale    

From Darry and Chris Honey's superb vineyard as our earlier wines. An excellent, but slow ripening vintage resulting in a very late pick in early March. Well-balanced new, pale straw colour, it will develop into a mellower, honey coloured wine over coming years, for those who enjoy older Riesling.

Riesling 2017 Clare Valley – Watervale    

Darry and Chris Honey's Watervale, Clare Valley vineyard has given us another fine Riesling.  An excellent, but slow ripening vintage resulting in a very late pick in early March. As previously, the typical lime and lemon flavours, together with well-balanced mineral acidity, are again prominent. Whilst new, pale straw colour, it will develop into a mellower, honey coloured wine over coming years, for those who enjoy older Riesling.

Riesling 2016 Clare Valley – Watervale    

Another fine Riesling from Darry and Chris Honey's Watervale, Clare Valley vineyard.  A very slow ripening vintage resulting in typical lime and lemon flavours with lively mineral acidity.  Fruit flavours will continue to develop and over the next 2-3 years will develop into a mellower, honey-colour wine.
