Shiraz (80%) and Mataro from 1983 Central and 1919 Eastern vineyards, and 1920 Eastern vineyard bush vines. A little Mataro goes a long way in a blend. This is terrific, and distinctive. The Mataro adds depth, earthiness and hazelnut to the blend, the Shiraz has some spice and there’s a combination of fresh red and blue fruits, fresh mint, clean acidity, plush chestnutty tannin and flavour, and a trail of rosy perfume on the finish. It’s quite approachable now, though I think it will be great with cellaring too. See, you can have your Wendouree and eat it. Rating: 95 Points; Tasted: August 2016; Alcohol: 13.3%; Closure: Screwcap; Drink: 2016-2038+; Gary Walsh - The Wine Front

An 80/20% blend from 1893 plantings 1893 (Central Vineyard) and 1919 (Eastern), and 1920 (Eastern) bushvines. Shares the bright colour of all the Wendouree wines in this release; the bought has an earthy/savoury nuance to the black fruits, replayed by the strong textural play of the palate, part ripe tannins, part fruit. There is an irrepressible logic to the way the wine plays out that is wholly convincing and satisfying.
