West Cape Howe Cabernet Merlot 2014
80% cabernet sauvignon, 20% merlot with a simple WA GI; basic vinification: cold soak and 12 days on skins, portions aged separately in new and used French oak for 12 months. The colour is excellent - as is everything else about the wine; black and redcurrant, bay leaf and black olive hop into bed with each other, and snuggle under the covers, the French oak and tannins left to their own devices. The value transcends belief. Rating: 94 Points; Drink by: 2025; Price: $17.00; Date Tasted: Dec 2015; Alcohol: 14.5%; James Halliday Wine Companion
Mike Press Adelaide Hills Shiraz 2015
The Mike Press Shiraz has developed a loyal following of customers and along the way has collected trophies and medals. These vines were cloned from now 90 year old vines situated at Springton, and are now 17 years old. The conditions of 2015 vintage have produced another great Shiraz. Loaded with intense fruit flavours, it is drinking well now but will age gracefully for years to come.
Willow Bridge Dragonfly Chardonnay 2015
Halliday is extremely impressed saying the “palate has a tactile quality that highlights the complexity of flavours ranging through struck match, white peach and a burst of grapefruit zest on the long finish; Price: $20.00; Drink: to 2022; Rating: 94 Points & Top 100 Wines of 2015
Mike Press Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc 2016
The awesome power and intensity of this wine will catch many by surprise; the bouquet is correct and varietal, but by the time it reaches the mid-palate you can sense the express train loaded with citrus, green pea and sparks of tropical fruits blazing through the finish and cleansing aftertaste of mouthwatering acidity. Rating: 94 Points; Drink by: 2016; Price: $12.99; Date Tasted: Sept 2015; Alcohol: 12.7%; Top 100 Wines of 2015 - James Halliday; Weekend Australian
