So what's the Catch 22? You can't be a winemaker until you get experience, but you cant get experience until you make wine! Catch 22 is a winery owned and run by an established and highly acclaimed winemaker who teachs fledgling winemakers how to make quality wines at a reasonable price. This is a succlent Shiraz-dominant blend, which means it's full of luscious dark fruit, but you'll discover some spice, a hint of eucalypt and smooth tannins.
A ripe, perfectly considered Southern Rhône red with ample balance and power. Fruity and spicy, with notes of ripe plums on the nose and the palate. The fine oak treatment offers a lovely smoky note and the firm, ripe tannins offer plenty of structure. This is a fine French red.
A stunning Cabernet Shiraz from Halliday’s Winery of the Year 2016. Tahbilk, owned by the Purbrick family - a founding member of Australia’s First Families of Wine, has a unique heritage of being the oldest family-owned winery and vineyard in Victoria. <i>“It makes wines – particularly red wines – utterly in keeping with that tradition. The essence… comes from tiny quantities of Shiraz made from vines planted in 1860”</i> (Halliday). Dark plum, blackberry, cassis and a vanillin streak thnaks to time spent in French and American oak.
Shiraz and Malbec are grapes we normally associate with Australia and Argentina. House of Fun shows just how delicious they are when grown in Cape sunshine. It’s from the Gabb family, whose 20 hectare farm, Mount Rozier, is named after Annie Rozier, a flower merchant who in the 19th century harvested flowers growing on the hills surrounding Stellenbosch. Though her business flourished, these hills have long been planted with vines. On the Schapenberg slopes above Somerset West, near Cape Town, Mount Rozier enjoys commanding views, undulating slopes, varied soils and an idyllic microclimate. It’s a natural amphitheatre in which to produce world class wines. Some are all elegance and finesse, others like this are packed full of fruit and fun.
Irvine is famous for their world-class Merlot and the Spring Hill is their fresh and vibrant take on the varietal. On the nose, enjoy fresh plum and black cherry fruit with a waft of spice, while the palate delivers hints of plum, boysenberry, cherry and mocha. It's a blend of South Australian Merlot fruit from top vineyards, and has spent 12 month in French oak to deliver a nice level of support to all that velvety soft fruit.
