JIMMY WATSON TROPHY WINNER
2011 Bests Bin 1 Shiraz Great Western – $65
Full, deep crimson-purple; this richly robed shiraz, flooded with blackberry, licorice and ripe plum reflects the six vintages winemaker Justin Purser spent in France, Italy and NZ dealing with wet growing seasons. He has built a wine with excellent texture and structure making light of the weather. It also reflects the fact that neither the Thompson Family or Bin 0 Shiraz were made in ’11. All in all, winning three trophies at the Melbourne Wine Show ’12 was a just outcome. James Halliday.

2007 Cape Mentelle Marmaduke Shiraz Blend Margaret River
PERFECT 100 POINTERS!
2010 Renieri Riserva Sangiovese Brunello di Montalcino – $285
A young Brunello with precision and complexity showing violets, blackberries, bramble berries, tea leaf and minerals. Stone undertones, too. Full body, a compressed palate and firm and velvety tannins. Powerful and long. Truly fantastic. Breathtaking. Better in 2018. 100points, James Suckling.
2009 Chateau Leoville Poyferre Bordeaux St Julien – $459
One of the more flamboyant and sumptuous wines of the vintage, this inky/purple-colored St.-Julien reveals thrilling levels of opulence, richness and aromatic pleasures. A soaring bouquet of creme de cassis, charcoal, graphite and spring flowers is followed by a super-concentrated wine with silky tannins, stunning amounts of glycerin, a voluptuous, multilayered mouthfeel and nearly 14% natural alcohol. Displaying fabulous definition for such a big, plump, massive, concentrated effort, I suspect the tannin levels are high even though they are largely concealed by lavish amounts of fruit, glycerin and extract. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2040. 100 points, Robert Parker.
Sparklings of the World Tasting Set – $199
Featuring Champagne, Vintage Cava, Franciacorta, Vintage New World Sparkling, Rose, and a Mystery Wine, this six pack is the perfect gift for any bubbles lover. Included are tasting notes, a tasting wheel and even ‘options’ wine game questions for the Mystery Wine!
