Shedleys cabernet shiraz 2011 ($15)

This small Blackwood producer has been 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.
SCORE 90/100 CELLAR 10 years

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 mouthfeel
SCORE 88/100 CELLAR 10 years
