TASTING NOTES

2013 Belvoir Park Symphony Shiraz Cabernet Merlot

Celebrated as the flagship wine of Belvoir Park Estate, this wine exudes expression with three grape varieties woven delicately together to harmonise and deliver plenty of spice, pepper and deep blackberry fruit flavour. This wine is exceptionally well balanced and holds lengthy tannins.

LOME 2014 Marsanne Viognier Roussanne

Marsanne opens with tropical and waxy notes, Viognier provides apricot and almond flavours and Roussanne rounds out the palate with pear and floral hints in a textural blend following the Rhone Valley tradition.

2012 Sandhurst Ridge Nebbiolo

Shy at first, this wine teases you with hints of cherry and tar, gradually succumbing with aromas of musk and rose petals as it opens up. Upon tasting, the silky, velvety texture caresses before you are hit with a proverbial iron fist, arriving in the form of firm, powerful tannin that carries amazing power and flavour that lingers in the mouth.

2013 Tellurian Tranter Shiraz

Red cherries and dark plums are the main drive behind this wine, with flavours of cocoa, earthy tannins and spice that follow. The tannins are grippy and fine, providing a wonderful length and structure.
