2014 ‘The Cover Drive’ Cabernet Sauvignon – 91 Points & Editors’ Choice

This is a terrific value in balanced, ready-to-drink Australian Cabernet. It brings several Bordeaux-ish qualities to the table – medium body, silky tannins and aromas reminiscent of cigar box and Ribena –then adds varietally true flavors and a long finish.

2014 ‘The Lodge Hill’ Shiraz – 90 POINTS

This juicy, medium-bodied Shiraz is filled with mouthwatering cherry-berry fruit. Some silky tannins provide structure, but this is much more about the here and now than any sort of cellaring. The fruit persists through the finish, joined by hints of herbs and bacon.

2010 ‘The Benbournie’ Cabernet Sauvignon – 93 Points

Only released in top vintages, this is Jim Barry’s luxury cuvee of Cabernet Sauvignon. It does see plenty of oak so it shows impressive notes of baking spices, vanilla and brown sugar, but it backs those with ample dark fruit. It’s elegant despite its size, with a fine-grained tannins lingering on the finish.

2013 ‘The McRae Wood’ Shiraz – 90 POINTS 

This medium-bodied shiraz is remarkably fresh and vibrant, deftly blending maple syrup and smoke with red berries, then easing into a firm, dusty finish.
