This ultimate collection includes:

1 x Little Giant Barossa Shiraz 2017 (Australia)

AWARDED 93/100 POINTS & 5 STARS: Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Mar 2020

AWARDED SILVER MEDAL: New Zealand International Wine Show, 2020

"Delightfully fruited and immediately appealing, the bouquet shows black/blueberry, subtle spice, cocoa and toasted nut characters. It's wonderfully weighted and flavoursome on the palate, delivering fleshy mouthfeel and silky tannins, leading to a lengthy soothing finish. At its best: now to 2025" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Mar 2020

The Barossa Valley makes up the majority of the fruit source with typical plum, red licorice, chocolate and mocha characters whilst the addition of the spicier, elegant fruit of the cooler Eden Valley has added lift, interest and freshness. This is a contemporary Barossa Shiraz having spent maturation time in older oak adding subtle vanilla and earthy nuance. There’s softness on the finish while maintaining freshness and vibrancy.

Food Pairing: Pair with a classic roast beef and horseradish.

Alc: 14.5%

1 x Burns and Fuller Langhorne Creek Shiraz 2019 (Australia)

AWARDED 93/100 POINTS & 5 STARS: Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Aug 2020

"It’s wonderfully ripe and perfumed on the nose showing mulberry, dark plum, clove and spicy oak characters with a hint of dark cocoa. The palate delivers excellent weight and plump mouthfeel, well supported by fleshy texture and rounded tannins, making it immediately appealing and delightfully drinkable. At its best: now to 2029" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Aug 2020

Nicely intense on the nose and palate with juicy red and black fruits, hints of fresh leather and black olive tapenade. The palate is generous and mouth-filling driven long by fresh acidity and supple tannins. A serious wine suitable for all occasions – ready to drink now or cellar for a few years.

Alc: 14%

1 x Take It To The Grave Shiraz 2019 (Australia)

Awarded Gold Medal: AWC Vienna Wine Show 2020

Awarded 93/100 Points & 5 Stars: Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Aug 2020

"Youthfully charming and gorgeously ripe, the wine shows Black Doris plum, blueberry compote, thyme, vanilla and toasted nut aromas on the nose, followed by a flavoursome palate that displays excellent weight and fruit intensity. It’s silky and lingering with plenty of delectable flavours. At its best: now to 2027" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Aug 2020

In the glass it’s coloured purple with a dense and dark body. A full-bodied and very aromatic Shiraz showing purple berry fruits, dark chocolate and integrated spices. The palate shows good weight and evenness whilst the fine tannins and integrated acidity drive persistence to the length.

Alc: 14.5%

1 x Bumblebee Organic South Australia Shiraz 2019 (Australia)

AWARDED 93/100 POINTS & 5 STARS: Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, May 2020

"Upfront and instantly appealing, showing dark fruit richness combined with cocoa, cedar, fragrant spice and floral notes on the nose, followed by a wonderfully flavoursome palate that's fleshy and velvety. Gorgeously styled and immensely drinkable. At its best: now to 2026" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, May 2020

"A softly textured, uncomplicated and very well-balanced floral berry fruit driven style offering easy drinking" Winestate Magazine, Aug 2020

The nose is inviting and ripely fruited, all bright red-berried fruit, plums and sweet spice with a hint of savoury oak. The palate is medium bodied and approachable with dark berry and cassis flavours framed by soft tannins.

Alc: 14%

1 x Elephant In The Room Stupendous Langhorne Creek Shiraz 2019 (Australia)

AWARDED SILVER MEDAL: AWC Vienna International Wine Challenge 2020

Awarded 91/100 Points & 4.5 Stars: Sam Kim, Wine Orbit

Awarded 4 Stars: John Lewis, The Newcastle Herald, Jun 2020

"It's fabulously ripe and fragrant, showing mulberry, dark cherry, vanilla, toasted spice and hazelnut characters on the nose. The palate offers excellent fruit power backed by silky texture and supple tannins, making it very approachable and drinkable" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit

"Negociants, French for merchants, have a long history, beginning in France's Burgundy area where they created fine wines from growers with grape output too small to warrant their own bottlings. That continues today as they buy grapes, bulk juice or finished wine to sell under their own brands. This 14.2%-alcohol, garnet-hued Langhorne Creek red is one of today's three Australian versions of the négociant system. It has rhubarb aromas, lively plum front-palate flavour, middle-palate Morello cherry, mint and licorice and toasty oak and a dusty tannin finish" John Lewis, The Newcastle Herald, Jun 2020

Deep purple colour with aromatic notes of red berry and blackcurrants framed by violet and enticing cedarwood spice. The palate is dense and plush with flavours of blood plum, blueberry and spice with a supple, slippery mouthfeel framed by subtle oak toast and fine tannins. A generous wine, packed full of flavour that is ready to drink now or will cellar for up to 10 years.

Alc: 14.5%

1 x Speak No Evil Organic Shiraz 2020 (Australia)

"This charming and elegantly styled, showing raspberry, dark plum, anise and floral aromas on the nose. The palate displays supple mouthfeel and bright fruit flavours combined with fine texture and polished tannins, making it smooth and delightfully drinkable. At its best: now to 2023" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, August 2020

Nicely lied and aromatically charged with red berry fruit aromas hints of vanilla fresh ground spices and ripe plums. Soft and seductive tannins help shape the wine yet the weight of fruit ensures it remains lithe and generous.The palate rewards with fruit vibrancy, nuanced spice and milk chocolate and a fine, integrated acidity drive a long enjoyable finish. The wine is looking great right now but will also age confidently with very careful cellaring for up to 5 years.
