EVOI cabernet sauvignon 2014 ($32)

Quite beautiful and fragrant cabernet from Margaret River made by Nigel Ludlow. It’s a small producer yet one making some of the consistently finest cabernets in the region. Loads of ripe blackcurrant fruit with leafy bay leaf and black olive nuances. Already complex and velvety smooth.
SCORE 95/100 CELLAR 12 Years

EVOI Reserve chardonnay 2014 ($55)

A pretty funky chardonnay showing some remarkable intensity and complexity already. It has sort of got the works with partial barrel fermentation, lots of solids and lees stirring after whole bunch pressing. Has a savoury cashew and light butterscotch character on the nose. The palate is deep and very intense with a long finish showing a trace of struck match influence.
SCORE 94/100 CELLAR 8 years

EVOI The Satyr Reserve 2013 ($55)

Best of the West 2017 – Red blend
Stunning wine that opens with beautiful floral perfumed notes on the nose. The palate shows characters of blackcurrant and subtle black olive. It is a work of art with a complex weave of tannin and oak in support. So beautifully balanced and poised with those chalky tannins holding things perfectly.
SCORE 97/100 CELLAR 15 years
