2007 Voyager Estate Shiraz (Margaret River, WA)

Bright hue; elegant, but complex, with distinct cool region overtones of spice and liquorice to the black fruits; the tannins and oak are well-balanced and integrated.

2009 Tatiarra Culled Barrell Shiraz (Heathcote, VIC)

Nosing reveals a delightful profile of ripe blackberry and liquorice followed by some vanillin oak, light mocha and spice. Bold and richly textured the palate is loaded with ripe blackberry and dark plum flavours followed by some liquorice and vanillin spice with a strong peppery back palate presence.

2009 J Lohr Paso Robles Syrah (USA)

A dark garnet colour with vibrant hue. Rich, ripe aromas of blueberry and black tea framed by a bouquet of hazelnut, cocoa powder and brown sugar. Savour flavours of blackberry fruit and dark chocolate as this dense vintage evolves and opens up in the glass.

2011 Domaine Pierre Usseglio & Fils Chateauneuf-du-Pape (France)
One of the finest Tradition cuvees of the vintage. Its deep ruby/purple hue is followed by copious aromas of blueberries, mulberries, kirsch, lavender, pepper and Provencal herbs.

Wine Pairings:
2011 Te Whare Ra (TWR) Syrah (Marlborough, NZ)

94 Points Wine Front: “Not exactly famous for Shiraz is Marlborough, and to be honest, I don’t even really like Shiraz that much, but this blew me away. Crack of pepper, meaty, juicy dark cherry fruit and subtle oak. Medium bodied, light chalkiness, supple, light herbal seasoning and pepper, but wrapped up in raspberry and cherry fruit.”

2009 Pierre Amadieu Vinsobres Les Piallats (France)

The nose displays aromas of dark ripe cherries, some meaty characters, a touch of liquorice and some spice. Medium to full bodied with flavours of dark raspberries, black cherries, some liquorice and meaty characters with a spicy back palate. Dryish slightly chewy tannins give the wine a slightly chalky mouthfeel.

Insalate (Salad) Course

Rocket, Parmigiano, Walnuts, Rooftop Honey
Green beans, Toasted Almonds, Chilli, Garlic
A savoury blend of greens, vegetables, and new flavours!

Wine Pairings:
2012 Lou Miranda Estate Shiraz (Barossa Valley)

A nose of lifted ripe raspberry fruit characters combined with varietal spice and hints of pepper are at the fore. The nose has a youthful aroma of red licorice and sweet toasty oak, which is integrated into the richness of the wine.

A warm, inviting and full-bodied palate, which is beautifully ripe & generous. It tastes of rich, sweet blackberry & raspberry fruits and the vanilla oak is complimentary to the chocolaty tannins.

Dolce (Dessert) Course

Bomboloni — Italian Doughnuts with Hazelnut Ice Cream and Roof Top Honey
Save room for this sweet delight!

Wine Pairings:
2012 Shinas Estate “The Guilty” Shiraz (Mildura, VIC)
