Geoff Merrill Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2013


Life is made easy when you can buy a bottle off the shelf with some significant aging already under its belt. All that is required is for you to decant then sit back and enjoy. Lovers of 'old school' Cabernet wines will be rapt with this.

Yalumba Patchwork Shiraz 2013


I caught up with Jane Ferarri a few years ago. Such a generous individual with her time, she is so fantastically hilarious and ever so knowledgeable about her patch of Barossa dirt. 

We sat and ate breakfast at her favourite Angaston cafe and chewed the fat on a range of topics. She loves poetry, too, but she wasn't about to sneak a cheeky insight into her upcoming gig at the Elvis festival in Parkes (she went on to win the best poet of the whole shebang). Those who've spent time with Jane know she speaks sense. So when she does talk, you just listen.

Geddes Cellar Release Petit Verdot Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Rugby's version of a rolling maul in a glass. A couple of big lads combining and causing all sorts of demolition and pleasure at once. Lip smacking good gear.

Whistle Post Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Here's a smart Cabernet from a label you may never have heard of. The good folk at Whistle Post are former growers who've cut their Hardy's contracts and gone it alone.
