2017 THE REVEREND CANON CABERNET SAUVIGNON SHIRAZ

93 Points

Deep red colour with a touch of purple in the rim and a note of peppermint on the nose, together with crushed-leaf and red fruits, raspberry and well-oiled cricket bat. A robust, chunky style of cabernet without a great lot of varietal character. I can smell cork, but it hasn't damaged the wine. A massive wine that needs and deserves cellaring. 23 MAR 2021


2018 JELLICOE BAROSSA GSM

92 Points

Medium to deep ruby-red colour in the glass. The nose showing crushed forest berries, thyme and ironstone aromatics. Medium-bodied, with supple dark fruits and some spice notes flowing across the palate. There's a weight of tannins giving focus and it flows quite long into a well layered drying finish. Still quite youthful and will benefit from judicious decanting prior. 13 FEB 2021
