Bleasdale Frank Potts Cabernet Blend 2012

Regular Price: $31.00

Special Price: $30.00

As low as: $29.00

.....Bright crimson-purple; has absorbed the oak while preserving the cassis fruits and softening the tannins; good length and balance. Drink to 2027." 94 points James Halliday, James Halliday Australian Wine Companion 2015, 1 August 2014
..... Langhorne fruit exuberance, all blackberried and blueberried, but with grainy, smoky, gum leafy tannin keeping it firm and strict and proper. Full-bodied but not overdone. Sound, fruit-filled length. Oak as a complement but not in an overt and dominant manner. Will keep developing in the cellar over a good number of years. 93+ points Winefront

Deep purple-crimson, it is sourced from two estate blocks and one local grower .... the best selected for this wine. 14% alc; screwcap 95 points James Halliday Weekend Australian
.....This wine needs a huge sleep in a dark place to build on that already noticable complexity, to soften out and round off those tannins, and to let that coiled up power and intensity, uncoil. Seriously, the BEST Australian Malbec wine I have ever tried, and a cellar special ... a special wine this one. - Gavin Trott

Castelli Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Regular Price: $27.50

Special Price: $25.99

As low as: $25.00

A powerful, yet disciplined, display of cabernet varietal character, commencing on the bouquet and gaining even more traction on the medium to full-bodied palate; here rich blackcurrant fruit stands centre-stage, savoury/ powdery tannins adding gravitas, cedary oak likewise. - 96 points James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion Magazine, Oct/ Nov 2014.
Black fruit, black olives, leaf, spicy biscuit and pencil oak, mint, chocolate. Medium bodied, flush in the mouth, pixel fine tannin, even but crisp acidity, and a long tobacco tinged finish. Terrific. Screwcap Drink: 2016 - 2022+" - Gary Walsh, The Wine Front. 94 points

Forester Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Regular Price: $26.50

Special Price: $24.99

Sitting where I sit, it’s easy lately to forget that wines like this exist. This is really clean crisp Cabernet from one of the places on Earth it grows best.


It’s all coffee and cocoa and mocha, cedary oak and blueberries, musk and faint lavender and violets, clean as a whistle and ready to swell and turn and glower with a decade in a good cellar. Once again made after the old (1950s) Penfolds open fermenters/temperature control/pumpover method, it delivers a similar result at just a bit of the price of their best.


As it plays around in your mouth, its slender and sinuous form does that magical transformation from silky and elegant viscosity to velvet, with the right level of acid and drying fine-grained tannins sorting all the slick stuff out, letting them all trickle through the organoleptic division in the right order at the right pace.


Right now I’m loving it with crumbly sheep’s cheese, lemon juice, basil and black pepper on dark rye. I could drive myself nuts dreaming of having it with simply grilled lamb cutlets, pink and dribbling, and mash. It makes your cheeks leak; opens the salvaries till they gush.


Maybe too clinically bright for the dirty-arse funkster fanatics, it’s a damn good reflection of the noble Cabernet at its arrogant, aromatic best. Regardless of the politics, I can’t imagine anybody refusing a glass." 93+ Points
