Pepperjack Shiraz 2012
Winner of the 2013 Visy Great Australian Shiraz Challenge Trophy.
Collects 90 points from Mike Bennie of the Wine Front, who calls it a ‘textbook commercial Barossa Shiraz’ and states that it will ‘please a great many’.
Halliday gives it 93 points and Huon Hooke hands over 87 points.
The palate is rich with berry fruit and subtle oak balanced with fine tannins. Huon Hooke suggests cellaring it but he tasted it back in 2014, so perhaps it has softened a bit by now. If you want to slurp away, decanting it should do the trick. Tasting notes can be found here.
Shingleback Red Knot Classified Shiraz 2014
Rich blackberry mid-palate with soft oak and chewy tannins.
Huon Hooke gives it 88 points describing it as ‘very big and super-ripe, soft and open-knit, with supple tannins and easygoing texture’. Retails for $19.00.
Parker Coonawarra Estate Coonawarra Series Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
You can read the full tasting notes here.
Campbell Mattinson hands over 87 points stating that ‘it drinks well enough’. His review gives the impression that it lack real ‘oomph’.
Vivino users give it 3.6 stars but many agree that it needs time to settle in your glass.
Best served after decanting and with a good steak. Would set you back $24 from the cellar door.

80% Grenache and 20% Shiraz. Produced with 98-year-old dry grown bush vine Grenache.
Previous vintages have scored 90+ points from James Halliday.

Halliday gives it 87 points.
This offer gets 4.5 stars. It is such a ‘good value for money’ deal, with a discount of $120. You get top notch South Australian Reds, and real mixture of premium collector quality down to your more solid ‘good drinkabilty’ commercial reds. And all at very good prices.
It’s a delivery only offer, and due to the price and quality, we doubt it will hang around for long.
If you’ve always wanted a $150 bottle of wine, but could never see the value in it, well this offer has everything you’ve ever wanted and more!
