Shadowfax Minnow Viognier 2020

96+ Points - Stuart McCloskey “In Victoria’s Pyrenees, the Malakoff Vineyard has become one of the state’s most celebrated grower sites, supplying fruit to a shimmering galaxy of winemaking stars. The site was first celebrated by Northern Rhône superstar Michel Chapoutier, with just under a third of a hectare of Viognier planted and demand for this wonderful varietal is huge. The bouquet is powerful, evocative and delivers everything that good-to-great Viognier should; jasmine tea, jasmine flower, apricot, fresh ginger, smoky quartz, lime zest along with buckets of freshness and sea spray, if left for a while. The texture overdelivers for a wine of this value as every facet is covered with a gloriously rich and silky mouthfeel. Super spicy, which contrasts a treat with the texture – the fruit yields from the orchard and comes by way of quince, pear and apple (spiced in a light syrup) along with a little apricot. The flavours build and keep building. Acidity lies at its core and delivers freshness galore. This is the perfect definition of textural sexiness. The velvet-like texture is highly addictive. A soupçon of ginger honey finishes a masterful showing. Just brilliant. Nothing more – nothing less. Drink now to 2028. Do not overchill. Served using Zalto Bordeaux glassware.”

Pooley Wines Butchers Hill Pinot Noir 2018

Pooley Wines Butchers Hill Pinot Noir 2018

Tasmania, Australia

£40.95 per bottle

Gary Walsh (The Wine Front) "Butcher’s Hill is the vineyard that has some limestone over sandstone, as opposed to Cooinda with the sandy loam over sandstone. Sandy Loam would be a nice name for someone, I think. Sweet dark raspberry and black cherry, exotic spices, subtle earthiness, dried roses. Medium-bodied, rich and silky tannin, a... read more

Gary Walsh (The Wine Front) "Butcher’s Hill is the vineyard that has some limestone over sandstone, as opposed to Cooinda with the sandy loam over sandstone. Sandy Loam would be a nice name for someone, I think. Sweet dark raspberry and black cherry, exotic spices, subtle earthiness, dried roses. Medium-bodied, rich and silky tannin, a little sap and tang, but a core of plump red fruit with a distinct minerally thing going on, and a finish that’s bright and long, with some dried herb and peel seasoning. More perky, less deep this season, but shows the site to good effect."

The 2018 vintage was slightly warmer than the long-term average leading to rich and complex fruit coming from the Butcher’s Hill Vines. A layered nose of red plum, ripe cherry, black raspberry, charred wood, cedar spice and light smokey finish. A burst of freshness across the palate with wild raspberry and baking spice showing through, leading onto a light earthy note and fresh cracked pepper. An excellent tannin structure and balanced acid gives a long and rewarding finish.

Exclusive to The Vinorium

97++ Points - Stuart McCloskey "The perfume is simply glorious and unfurls with coffee, chocolate, blackberry, dark cherry, raspberry, leafy / herbal notes, sweet spice, clove, warm earth following a downpour, liquorice and a dusting of white pepper. The palate is supple, with satiny fruit effortlessly sailing across my palate. There is richness but it’s handled judiciously – minerality striking a firm cord. This is a grown-up, sophisticated Shiraz which is immensely pleasing. Dark raspberry sweetness juxtaposed wonderfully with the French oak and lithe tannins. This is beautiful. Really beautiful and in all honesty, has taken me by surprise. The spice develops as do the flavours (plums) which expand with each passing minute. This is full of charisma and will only get better (drink now to 2035). Ensure to decant for 2-4 hours. Served using Zalto Bordeaux glassware. A standout Shiraz.”

Jaysen Collins (winemaker)  "I cut my winemaking teeth in the heavy red soils of the north west of the Barossa, where Greenock is the jewel of the crown in my opinion. My winery is here, the pub does a good burger and by chance there's some pretty good shiraz vineyards knocking about. A few vintages ago I came across a vineyard just on the north of the Greenock township that hides behind some big gum trees. It runs down a small hill facing east, with lean soils, cooler afternoons, tiny yields, small berries - how asleep had I been to drive past this vineyard for several years? But I'm definitely alert now! I like Shiraz that is big on fruit intensity but is more supple and svelt on the palate, powerful yet, velvety, structured but sensual - I could go on but I think I've conveyed my point. So this is a rare single site treat from my part of the world and a true connection to my beginnings in making wine."

Love Over Gold possesses a core of ripe and defined fruit with tannins that are coating and very long, it will age effortlessly over 20 to 25 years. The 2015 Love Over Gold was carefully hand picked on the 23 of March 2016. It was then diligently hand destemmed with only the very best berries selected. Ten percent whole bunch was included in the ferment with only perfect berries left on the rachis.

The destemmed fruit was transferred into a small open topped fermenter. Gentle pigeage was performed twice daily with the natural ferment progressing at a cool 24 degrees. Once ferment was complete and after 24 days, free run was drained to a 2 year old extra tight grained puncheon.

Winemaker Notes: Made from only 1 tonne of fruit, totally hand destemmed by us (a long day of labour over the sorting table). It goes into a 1 tonne fermenter, where we only foot stomp. Then only the free runs go into a Chassin Hogshead. 

Love Over Gold displays a deep black colour with a purple edge, the bouquet starts out quite tight, not showing a lot at first, then slowly deep and powerful dark fruits emerge, notes of cinnamon, moss, dark cherry, lavender with sautéed plums. The palate is loaded with purple to black fruits, it has an amazing persistence that rolls along effortlessly and with complete ease. Tension and drive is how we would best describe this wine. The tannin profile is deep and velvety, this wine holds a lovely richness with a weightless energy. This is a wine with a strong personality that will be rewarded with 20+ years in a good cellar. 600 bottles made.

“There was some debate around a decade ago that this iconic Margaret River winery had lost a little of its glitter and that the wines were not what they once were. I was not quite as onboard with that as some. In fairness, it is not easy to remain at the pinnacle for a half century. But in recent years, the levels of quality they have attained have put to rest any such doubts. These guys now make some of the most thrilling wines in Margaret River and none better than their Cabernet. There are some world class Cabs made in the region and the MW sits with the very best. This vintage ranks with the finest of recent releases and there have been some crackers. To be honest, to look at this, I slipped it into a tasting which friends had organised, which was of some “super-second level” Bordeaux and great Margaret River Cabernets, from vintages as far back as 1990, right up to today. It will give an indication of how well it went if I tell you that one friend, not usually known for purchasing anything other than the great wines of Europe, rang the next day to say he had already picked up a six pack.
96% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% each of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, this is elegance personified. A low yielding and slightly cooler vintage, the grapes went into small open tanks for fermentation, with thrice daily hand-plunging. 15 days on skins and then pressed to tank before it was racked to French oak, 15% new. Over two years maturation. As mentioned, elegance personified. A silky combination of coiled power and finesse, this is a glorious Cabernet. Blackberries, spices, tobacco leaves, kid leather, violets, cigar box notes, aniseed and delicately integrated oak. There is a gossamer-like web of complexity weaving through the wine. Seamless, great length and cashmere tannins. This is a brilliant wine. Ten years, twenty years? How long have you got? If you are serious about great Australian Cabernet, this is a must for your cellar."
