2017 MadFish Gold Tur­tle Chardon­nay

BE­ING such an im­por­tant feeder brand to Mar­garet River’s il­lus­tri­ous Howard Park la­bel, MadFish en­joys the same level of wine­mak­ing ded­i­ca­tion pro­vided by top gun Janice McDon­ald. Ex­cep­tional value wine from a re­gion where chardon­nay ex­cels. Rich but­tery flavours with a gen­tle touch of oak.

2016 Mar­gan Shi­raz

HUNTER Val­ley rains in early 2016 stopped just in time for An­drew Mar­gan to get his hands on suit­able ma­te­rial to shape this flavour-driven and ex­ceed­ingly soft shi­raz, which he likens to the once fa­mous “Hunter River Bur­gundy” style. His lo­cal shi­raz skill again comes to the fore.

2016 Meerea Park Hell Hole Semil­lon

RIGHT out of the mould of the Hunter Val­ley’s cel­e­brated white va­ri­ety and crafted to per­fec­tion by Rhys Eather, who op­er­ates the five-star win­ery with brother Garth. Fresh, clean and bal­anced, its youth­ful flavours mask the joys ahead when ad­di­tional age will re­flect the wine’s true splen­dour.

2016 Le­con­field Caber­net Sauvi­gnon

FROM the heart of Aus­tralia’s most fa­mous red wine re­gion Coon­awarra, this splen­didly bal­anced, el­e­gant and richly flavoured wine brings to­gether the mul­ti­tude of fac­tors in­her­ent in a world-class caber­net sauvi­gnon, with wine­maker Paul Gor­don’s skil­ful cus­to­di­an­ship on show at ev­ery turn.
