Amon-Ra Shiraz

Amon Ra Shiraz

Amon Ra Shiraz by Ben Glaetzer from the Barossa Valley. An unfiltered heavyweight shiraz by a great winery.

The first Glaetzers settled in the Barossa Valley in 1888 after emigrating from Brandenburg, Germany. The family left Germany on board the Nord-Deutscher Lloyd steamer “Habsburg” and took seven weeks to reach their final destination of Port Adelaide. From here they settled in a country town called Nuriootpa in the Barossa Valley where they started their new life in Australia. The family were some of the earliest recorded viticulturalists in the Barossa Valley and Clare Valley

Amon-Ra Shiraz is an iconic wine that epitomises Ben Glaetzer’s passion to create wines that are full flavoured, multi layered and intense but still elegant, stylish and finely balanced.

In Egyptian mythology, Amon Ra is considered to be the king of all gods. The temple of Amon Ra was believed to be the first temple to ever plant a monoculture vineyard to produce wine for the citizens of the temple.

The eye on front of the label is the all seeing eye of Horus or wedjat (“whole one”) – a powerful Egyptian symbol of protection. It is represented as a figure with six parts, corresponding to what Egyptians regarded as the six senses; touch, taste, hearing, sight, smell and thought.

Ben Glaetzer created Amon Ra Shiraz to appeal to all these six senses.

The 2013 Amon Ra Shiraz displays a very deep purple-black color and floral notes of violets and wilted rose petals over mulberries, blueberries, star anise, mocha, fenugreek, cumin seeds, cloves and tree bark plus some toasty oak. Full-bodied and rich yet not overly so, it has refreshingly crisp acid and firm grainy tannins texturing the long spicy finish.

A great wine well worth it’s iconic status.

Xanadu Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon

Xanadu Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon

Xanadu Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon – A Cabernet that is simply oozing class. Richly layered and densely packed fruit fills the palate with an opulent and powerful intensity. Flavours of blackcurrant and mulberry with a light lift of leafy black olive. This is classic Margaret River Cabernet with power, poise and stylish expression.

Gourmet Traveller 96 points!
“This outstanding cabernet has great colour and a multiplicity of black fruits in the bouqet with a faint tinge of dried herb and perfectly dovetailed oak. Rich, full-bodied, lush blackberry fruit takes centre stage”
Gourmet Traveller, 2014

“The full bodied palate is generous and crammed full of ripe forest fruits, cassis, and dark chocolate characters. Powerful, yet refined in structure, the fleshy fruits are complimented with an ample amount of supple tannins; all culminating together to provide a dense, persistent berry fruit finish.”

Mollydooker Enchanted Path

Mollydooker Enchanted Path

Mollydooker Enchanted Path

Mollydooker Enchanted Path displays an inky deep colour with dense hues. The journey begins with fragrant bright red fruit on the nose, followed by deeper tones of blackberry and plum jam on the palate. Well guided by precise tannins, these flavours will fully entertain your senses, giving the wine phenomenal length. The captivating interplay between the Shiraz and Cabernet provides a sophisticated mix of plum and mocha, walking beside raspberry and clove. The 2017 Enchanted Path exercises both elegance and complexity with a well-balanced finish.

Full information on the winery may be found at https://www.mollydookerwines.com/

The vineyards are situated on the magical Seaview Ridge, which with its ancient soils and Mediterranean climate, is home to some of the most iconic Australian wines. We have three separate vineyards – Long Gully Road, Coppermine Road and the Home Blocks, giving us a total of 114 acres of Shiraz, Cabernet and Merlot. All of our grapes are grown sustainably.

For the best results with your wine try the Mollydooker shake.

From a new bottle of Mollydooker, pour some wine out into a glass and set it aside. Do the Mollydooker Shake on the rest of the wine in the bottle, and pour some into another glass. Then taste them side by side. The difference will amaze you! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QCGFz3nnakE

The winemaker says “Pre-shaken the wines are intense, concentrated and still magnificent. However, after the shake the wine becomes more approachable, the aromatics are lifted and the fruit is smoother on the palate. An overall more enjoyable and total Mollydooker experience!”

Don’t worry, the first glass you poured isn’t wasted. After a short time, it loses nitrogen, so you can enjoy it soon after. We call it pourer’s perks!

Cyril Henschke Cabernet Sauvignon

Cyril Henschke Cabernet Sauvignon

Cyril Henschke Cabernet Sauvignon 

This wine carries the name of Stephen’s father, Cyril Henschke (1924-1979), as a tribute to one of Australia’s outstanding winemaking pioneers, renowned for old-vine single-vineyard and quality varietal table wines. Cyril planted cabernet sauvignon at Henschke’s Eden Valley vineyard in the 1960s.

Description

Deep crimson with red hues. Concentrated and complex aromas of cassis, black and red currants, blackberry leaf and violets with underlying savoury nuances of crushed dried herbs, cigar box, beefstock and anise spice, all supported by dark cedary French oak. A flood of rich blackberry and bright red currants greet the palate, which is precisely defined by purity of acidity, an elegant structure and layers of long, silky fine-grained tannins that provide great persistence.

To see our Henschke range go to https://www.auswinesonline.co.uk/product-category/henschke/

This is one of Australia’s greatest cabernets, staring down Coonawarra and Margaret River (just for starters)…It has a purity and elegance that puts it in a class of its own.

St Henri Shiraz

Penfold St Henri Shiraz

St Henri Shiraz by Penfolds is a classic Australian red wine.

“Another vintage that classically reaffirms St Henri DNA – it is not a Bin, nor RWT nor Grange-like. A unique shiraz proposition that harks back to the late-1800’s. Quality that doesn’t date.” “Recommend to decant this vintage – no ifs or buts! It will maketh the wine and reward your effort. 

OVERVIEW St Henri Shiraz is a time-honoured and alternative expression of shiraz, and an intriguing counterpoint to Grange. It is unusual among high quality Australian red wines as it does not rely on any new oak. Released for the first time by Penfolds in the early 1950s (first commercial vintage 1957), it gained a new lease of life in the 1990s as its quality and distinctive style became better understood. Proudly, a wine style that hasn’t succumbed to the dictates of fashion or commerce. St Henri is rich and plush when young, gaining soft, earthy, mocha-like characters as it ages. It is matured in old, 1,460 litre vats that allow the wine to develop, imparting minimal, if any oak character. Although a small proportion of cabernet is sometimes used to improve structure, the focal point for St Henri remains shiraz.
GRAPE VARIETY 96% Shiraz, 4% Cabernet Sauvignon
VINEYARD REGION Barossa Valley, Adelaide Hills, Southern Fleurieu, Wrattonbully, McLaren Vale
WINE ANALYSIS Alc/Vol: 14.5%, Acidity: 6.3 g/L, pH: 3.66
MATURATION 12 months in 50+ y.o. large oak vats
VINTAGE CONDITIONS
Above-average winter and early spring rainfall offered the vines in South Australia healthy soil moisture profiles for the growing season. Late spring and summer were dry and warm with significant heat records being set. Warm weather prevailed during summer and throughout veraison, allowing grapes to develop evenly and with good intensity. The warm conditions came to an abrupt halt in mid-February with significant rainfall that allowed for a long and slow ripening of the fruit in very good conditions. This ensured balanced flavour development, fruit exhibiting a brightness endowed with crisp acid retention and impressive fruit quality.
COLOUR Deep garnet
NOSE Lifted, racy. Rhône-ish at first, South Australian upon sitting. Bountiful aromatics ascend – initially redcurrant, cranberry, Christmas cake mix, and then the liberation of citrus (lime peel), fennel and olive. Middle Eastern spices also present – sweet, not savoury (incl. cinnamon, nutmeg). And, not unexpected, something not present – oak!
PALATE Svelte. Nevertheless, propels assertive tannins that build – sheeted/layered in configuration. To please all tastes – the sweet – zabaglione, custard, raw chocolate (cocoa); and the savoury – (bone) marrow, star anise. Lingers, and certainly leaves a most appealing ‘residual’ impression for quite some time after ingestion. For more information go to

Diana Madeline Cullen always liked the cooler seasons for Cabernet Sauvignon, especially the 1982. The cooler vintages make wines of great elegance and longevity.
The 1982 Cabernet Merlot (as it was known then) last day of harvest was the 22nd of April, versus the 12th of April for the 2017 vintage.
A great tribute to the biodynamic farming, shining even in the unusual vintages.

All Cullen Wines are grown on a certified Biodynamic, Carbon Neutral and naturally powered estate. Grapes are harvested by hand on fruit and flower days according to the astrological calendar. The wines have no additions of yeast, acid or malolactic culture, and are in this sense natural wines which express the place and land on which they are grown, the vintage and the people.

Red wine quality is defined to a large extent by the ripeness of tannin. The wine style is framed around these fine grained tannins coaxed from grapes grown on low yielding vines. This is the theme for all Cullen red wines and gives finesse, flavour and longevity.
