2015 The Admiral Yarra Valley Chardonnay (12 bottles)
Attractive lemon curd and white flower notes dominate the bouquet. Nougat, lemon barley and mealy notes are evident with beautifully balanced French oak. Hints of mineral wet slate are perceptible and will continue to evolve. Fine, tightly structured and pure, finishing with fine citrus acidity. Lemon curd and citrus zest characters dominate with nuances of white of white flowers, nougat barrel fermentation and subtle French Oak. Restraint, plenty of flavour and fine acidity - all hallmarks of a cooler season in the Yarra.

2012 Loveton Estate Barossa Valley Shiraz (12 bottles)
Found in the rolling hills of the beautiful Barossa Valley. This wine has deep red-black colour with a dark centre with a bouquet loaded with spicy plum and chocolate notes and the palate is typically firm, rich and with a long finish which is a legacy of the low yielding vineyards of the north-west Barossa. This is certainly a wine that will benefit from a few years of careful cellaring if so desired.
2013 Plump Harvest Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon (12 bottles)
Regal, yet modern. Lifted high notes - an intriguing mix of rhubarb, turnip, radish, white chocolate and clove. Scents of blackberry conserve, fig paste, black olive, oregano, bay-leaf, paprika. A hint of high quality French Oak compote carries over onto the palate, energised by the blackcurrant and quince allies and red fruits. Tomato chutney/relish/pulp... giving way to savoury tapenade. Dutch red licorice. The feature here is texture... Structurally woven, a mesh rather than a coating - tightening by oak, bound by powdery Coonawarra Cabernet tannins. Good grip, natural acidity, deep and long.

Unmistakably Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, this is precisely the style that made Marlborough world renowned for its stunning white wines.
