 Shedleys Cabernet Shiraz 2011 ($15)

This small Blackwood producer has putting out his distinctive reds for some years. There’s heaps of fruit and it gets a couple of years in American oak. The result is a slightly quirky wine yet one that will really hit its straps in a few years. Great value.

Shedleys Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 ($15)

Still a very young wine with the oak quite dominant at the moment. It has juicy black fruits character with a slightly crushed herbs character. Nice sweet fruit characters with dark chocolate and a syrupy mouth feel.

Shedleys Franc and Ruby’s Port 2005 ($15)

This is a 50/50 blend of ruby cabernet and cabernet franc. There’s some nice spirit supporting it. A port style that is more in the tawny style with the colour starting to show that. The palate has a spicy leather and slightly rancio character which makes it all rather interesting. Clean lingering finish.

SCORE 89/100 CELLAR 10 years

Shedleys shiraz 2012 ($15)

Concentrated plush shiraz from the Blackwood. Loads of dark plum and chocolate characters on the nose and palate which also shows a distinct savoury earthiness. A trace of licorice adds some further complexity. Balanced with a linear minerality through to the finish.

SCORE 91/100 CELLAR 8 years
