An interesting wine that sucks you in. It's ripe at 15.5% alc, something which asks a lot of questions.

The type of wine which could see you get comfy in a chair and only rise up when you run out. Such a delish slurp and then some. Tim Smith knows how to Grenache, that's for sure.
Syrah from Margaret River is not something you see all that often. Lots of Shiraz, yes, but not so the Syrah style. But throw your arms around this beauty - delightful.

Siriusly (pun intended) good Chardonnay. I couldn't stop at one glass post-tasting. From the foothills of the Snowy Mountains comes this Single Vineyard Chardonnay perched in one of the coldest viticultural sites in Australia. The fruit for this wine used to be sold off to Penfolds for Yattarna but now all the Block 20 fruit goes exclusively to this label.
The Cabernet Gods really do smile down on us. This is a sublime example of the king of red varieties.
A little darker and brighter in the glass, it's a push away from the pale salmon appearance Rosé that many are trying to produce. It's a tasty wine no less.

Hunter Valley Chardonnay seems to fall in the shadow of the region's leading lights Semillon and Shiraz. The team at Scarborough have three great Chardonnays in their range, all showing a unique take on this prized variety. The Obsessive is the flagship and it's damn fantastic.

Clearly bursting with freshness, the cork couldn't wait to get out of the bottle quick enough. Only one of two Sparkling Vermentinos in Australia, this is a beauty.
