We are very happy to see some of our favourite wines featured in the 2019 James Halliday Wine Companion.
Bunkers Wines The Box Tempranillo 2015
“This has admirable varietal expression, with bright red berry and cherry fruits to the fore, already having sunk the American oak into its fruit swells”.
Cellar to: 2025
Calneggia Rosé 2017
“A 62/38% blend of shiraz and cabernet sauvignon made by the saignee method (running juice off dry red must) prior to the active commencement of fermentation; the components then starting their own fermentation. A rich wine with a surge of red berry flavours.”
Cellar to: 2019
Rosabrook Wines Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2017
“If you need to understand how terroir shapes the flavour and texture of a wine, cold-fermented, early-bottled Margaret River SBS is a great example. The wines open with intense flavour, pause to build citrus and mineral notes on the mid-palate, then finish long and dry.”
Cellar to: 2022
Rosabrook Wines Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
“Full colour; a generous, plush medium-bodied wine with gently ripe cassis fruit, not needing to defend its status in the pantheon of Margaret River cabernets. It pushes near to offering too much, but is promptly pulled back by earthy tannins and quality oak.”
