Halliday’s Show Stopping Reds

Single Vineyard - Estate Grown - James Halliday’s Five Star Wineries

A superb collection of six premium red wines, assured to please all wine enthusiasts.

Award winning and highly prized, Eden Valley Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon’s are renowned for long term cellaring. With the selection on offer, these six wines can be decanted and enjoyed within hours, if desired.

 

1) Dandelion Vineyards 2013 Red Queen of Eden Valley Shiraz

Dry grown and established on own roots, these Shiraz bush vines are hero’s in the Barossa region region at 102 years old.

Silky tannins with rich dark red berry fruits, notes of liquorice and pepper spice fill the palate with incredible power and presence. Decanting for 2 – 4 hours is recommended.

 2) Mountadam Vineyards 2013 Patriarch Shiraz

Patriarch Shiraz honours founder - David Wynn, remembered as one of the greatest contributors to the Australian wine industry.

Perched at an altitude of 500m on a unique east facing aspect, the Patriarch Shiraz wine showcases dark berry fruits, with notes of dark chocolate white pepper and nuances of quality French oak. Decanting for 2 – 4 hours is recommended.

 3) Gatt Wine 2010 High Eden Cabernet Sauvignon

100% Estate grown Cabernet Sauvignon. Hand-picked in the beautiful High Eden region of the Barossa, also known as Eden Valley.  Cabernet grapes are well-known in this region for slow ripening due to the cooler evening temperatures with the rewards of patience delivering strong colours  and elegant deep fruit flavours.

This Cabernet is a showpiece from the vintage of 2010, along with quality wine making and bottle age. Decanting for 2 – 4 hours is recommended.

4) Poonawatta 2015 The Cuttings Shiraz

With Shiraz vine cuttings taken from one of the oldest vineyards in the region (Poonawatta 1880 Shiraz), ‘The Cuttings’ has been long recognized as a stand out amongst Eden Valley wines.

The wine brings concentrated blue and black fruits through the aromas from the glass with a palate of pepper berries and spice. New French oak has matured this wine which is obvious but a delight on the senses.  Decanting for 2 – 4 hours is recommended.

5) Riley’s of Eden Valley 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon

An exceptional valued Cabernet from a single estate situated in central Eden Valley. The nights are cooler and the soil profile is perfect to mature this prized wine variety.

Dark red colour from the glass is obvious but the lifted nose of minerals, coffee beans and rich black berries will keep you wanting more.

This wine is youthful and enjoyable but if you have time to cellaring it will reward. Decanting for 2 – 4 hours is recommended.

6) Stage Door Wine Co. 2016 Full House Cabernet

Leaping into the wine scene in 2014, the Stage Door Wine Co. label is one to look out for. Some of you may have consumed this wine label on Qantas business class or read in print editions such as James Halliday’s.

Exceptional value with fine wine making to match; we know you will love this medium bodied Cabernet and not just for the colour, but the dark notes of berry fruits along with chalky savoury tannins is very enjoyable to say the least!
