Gift pack containing three of our favourite red wines - outstanding Tamar Valley Pinot Noir, Coonawarra Cabernet blend and McLaren Vale Shiraz.
Each gift pack contains the following 3 wines:
Holm Oak Pinot Noir 2020
Holm Oak Vineyards was established in 1983 and takes its names from the Holm Oak trees planted on the property. Holm Oak is one of the few smaller family owned wineries in Tasmania who grow, make and bottle their own wines on site.
"Hand picked from multiple estate blocks of 5 clones through a 2-week period; destemmed, open fermented with wild yeast, matured for 10 months in French oak (25% new). Wonderful, crystal-clear crimson; the floral, red-fruit assemblage on the bouquet moves seamlessly into a complex palate in terms of the forest strawberry and cherry fruit, but a pure and tightly focused palate flowing effortlessly through to a long, fresh finish and lingering aftertaste." 95 points, James Halliday
Balnaves of Coonawarra Cabernet Merlot 2017
"Grapegrower, viticultural consultant and vigneron, Doug Balnaves has over 70ha of high quality estate vineyards. The wines are invariably excellent, often outstanding; notable for their supple mouthfeel, varietal integrity, balance and length - the tannins are always fine and ripe, the oak subtle and perfectly integrated. Coonawarra at its best." 5 Star Winery - James Halliday
"55% cabernet sauvignon, 45% merlot. Matured in new (30%) and seasoned French oak. A smooth outcome courtesy of nicely textural merlot fruit boasting the prettiest florals. Strikingly dense purple-garnet hue. Bright juniper berry, cassis notes with the aforementioned roses, violets, potpourri. Melds nicely on the palate with tight-grained oak and highlights of garden mint." 95 points, Jeni Port, Halliday Wine Companion
Yangarra Shiraz 2019
Yangarra is one of the most highly regarded wineries in McLaren Vale, renowned for producing exceptional Shiraz and Grenache. Winemaker Peter Fraser was named Halliday Wine Companion Winemaker of the Year in 2016.
"Purple colour from core to rim and up the sides of the glass as well. Plums, rosemary and sea-spray aromatics. The palate flows majestically from front to back, light of foot but carrying serious intensity and drive. Structured to accentuate the long and lingering glide of fruit into the finish. So much pleasure now and will provide for many years to come" 95 points, Stuart Knox, The Real Review
