Yabby Lake Single Vineyard Syrah (2019) – A perfumed and spicy Syrah, medium-bodied in style. The palate is concentrated and silky, with finely structured tannins, bright fruit characters, wonderful elegance and depth. Stored carefully, this wine will age gracefully for ten years.
Paringa Estate Peninsula Shiraz (2018) – The bouquet of this wine shows spicy blackberry fruit along with the lifted floral viognier aromatics. The palate has black fruits, black pepper and fine grained tannins. A medium bodied wine with texture and power but with a fineness that reflects the cool climate on the Peninsula.
Montalto Pennon Hill Shiraz (2019) – Super savoury, with core of good fruit, spiced up with herbs and tapenade. Textural tannins, ripe yet raspy, hold sway on the fuller-bodied palate. Looks great now and even better with food. 95 pts – Halliday
