Hi everyone!

Hope your weekends going well!

Anyone have ideas on any of these.....except for the 2nd one of course. And are they any good

block4 (1)

Combining 100+ years of grape growing experience and a combination of traditional and modern winemaking practices, this producer's wines are among the best of Barossa Shiraz. They have supplied fruit to some of the biggest names in the Australian wine industry, and since 2000 have reserved some of their best fruit to produce wines like this one.

A touch of Viognier is the Northern Rhône recipe for greatness. It's a careful process and minimal co-fermenting of the white grape amplifies the colour and aromatics of the red. Every aspect of this crafting is hands-on, from the harvest and wild yeast fermentation, all the way through to the basket pressing. Only then can this delicious drop get a rest, seeing 20 months in seasoned French oak. The nose has a touch of floral character (thanks to the Viognier), with deep Shiraz fruit powering through accompanied by herbal notes, chocolate, licorice and leather.

Oak treatment: 20 months in 225-litre old French oak barriques
Alcohol: 15%
Cellaring: Decant to drink now until 2041



2. Ulithorne Paternus Cabernet Shiraz 2019 (pre-arrival) - South Australia
Cabernet (sourced: Coonawarra), Shiraz (sourced: McLaren Vale)
456856-1 copy



Ulithorne are known for producing high-quality small-batch red wines using a minimalist approach to winemaking. This is their flagship wine and represents the absolute pinnacle of their range. The outstanding value here is obvious in both the quality of the wine, and the remarkable weight of the bottle itself.

In colour, it's a beautiful deep crimson. Aromatically, it's intense and seems to leap from the glass with notes of mulberry, blackcurrant and raspberry. The palate is fruit-driven and there is certainly no shortage. Packed full of ripe dark fruit like blackberry and blood-plum, there's some spice too - both pepper and cinnamon thanks to well integrated oak which, although elegant, is no doubt present. The tannins are silky and the finish is long. One for the cellar that will certainly continue to develop and evolve with time.

Alcohol: 14.5%
Cellaring: 2035




3. Black Market Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 - McLaren Vale, SA
BOTTLE_FOTL_Ebeneezer_Shiraz
This winery is nowhere near your traditional style of producer - nor do they aim to be. Situated in part of the old Penfolds winery, they passionately craft top-class SA reds with absolutely no shortage of flavour or character. The unique and eye-catching labels are designed to tell a story, and have been described as short graphic novels (when it arrives, you'll see what I mean!).

With two years in French oak, this astoundingly textural and complex Cabernet is only now beginning to show its true colours. The bouquet is layered with notes of ripe plum and cassis, with hints of tobacco leaf and potpourri. The palate is lusciously rich and decadent. Dark berry and dried herbs take centre stage, framed by well integrated notes of cedar and oak spice which linger in its impressively persistent finish. A beautiful Cabernet that is ready to go now, and will continue to be for another 15 years!

Oak treatment: 24 months in new French oak
Alcohol: 15%
Cellaring: Drink now until 2036

Yes I got this email too. Very surprising - as I have never received any of these types of email.

Decided to pull on the Paternus. I missed on the Shiraz deal.

Hmmm - I don't know if that's a reason for not buying their wine? Most stats don't report what percentage of the winery is owned by a Chinese owned business, and there are still Australians that have jobs making the wine most of the time? I get it's a complex issue, but I'm not sure not buying their wine completely resolves things if this is a serious issue for you?

Can't comment on this wine as I've never tried but a lot of Chinese owned wineries are making wine to export and suit a specific taste profile. Rrp is often marked up to what they would have sold for overseas

Pretty sure this is the same Wine as the Rose Kentish cab Shiraz - good wine if it has been stored well.
I don't think that is entirely correct, as Rose Kentish used to make wines for Ulithorne up until 2016 - so anything pretty much after 2014-215 was made by Ulithorne without the Rose Kentish involvement.

After the (unamicable break up) Rose set out to make her own wines under her own label - that is where Rose Kentish Old Vine Cab Shiraz was born. All fruit is sourced from her own family property in McLaren Vale and matured in French oak. Ulithorne offering is matured in a mix of French and American and the fruit comes from different regions (CS from Coonawarra and Shiraz from McLaren).

Ironically I see the "Ulithorne" name is etched on the cork that encloses Rose Kentish bottles. But Ulithorne wines now would be completely different to Ulithone wines back in a day.

Of the admittedly few Ulithorne wines I've tried none have lived up to the hype, but as usual YMMV (not directed at you OW) 😉
100% agreed. With Rose Kentish at the helm they used to make good wines in the past. (cast your mind to Blaupunkt/Grundig brand)

Now it is the same ole CW wines model - make wine and start the hype - jack up the RRP - get Sam Kim mandatory 95-96 points rating - flog it at a deep discount on VM and others alike - rinse - repeat.

I bet we will see "new" Reschke wines soon too!
