Ulithorne produces small quantities of red wines from selected parcels of grapes from its estate vineyard in McLaren Vale, planted in 1950 by Bob Whiting. These rare and high-quality wines are crafted to always consider the fruit first – ensuring that the final wine celebrates all that is unique in the flavours and structure of the fruit taste, as it ripens in the vineyard.

The Paternus Shiraz presents a deep garnet-red colour. On the nose, the aromas are elegantly structured with notes of red forest berries followed by fine spices. The palate imparts plentiful fruit with characters of blackberry, cherry and plum, followed by hints of pepper spice. The depth and length displayed by the wine is beautifully balanced by medium acidity and finely structured tannins.

Gloriously rich and complex, showing blackberry, dark cocoa, cedary oak and mixed spice aromas, it's sumptuous and powerful with stunning fruit intensity backed by velvety texture and supple tannins. Mouthfilling and delectably appealing. Drink: Now to 2035; Price: $85.00; Date Tasted: October 2021; Alcohol: 14.5%; Rating: 96 Points; Wine Orbit

A classy wine. Blewitt Springs sourced. Elevated floral aromas, a lightness of being, gritty sandy tannins and for those seeking heft, plenty of extract and French oak. Matured for 18 months pre-blending then another 6 months after that. Raspberry bon-bon, blueberry, anise, lavender, clove and thyme. A wine that bridles power for the punter with a refined tannic kit, a treat for the experienced imbiber. Long and forceful. Drink to: 2030; Price: $80.00; Date Tasted: March 2022; Alcohol: 14.5%; Rating: 94 Points & Special Value Star; James Halliday Wine Companion
