A darling of the Barossa, Elena Brooks has crafted a Mataro – also known as Mourvèdre – that will stop you in your tracks, with the Dandelion Vineyards March Hare of the Barossa Mataro 2015 (RRP $60). Bramble, plum, mulberry and dried herb aromas greet you, opening onto a palate that is poised and flavoursome with intense black fruits throughout, powerful tannins matching the saturated core of fruit and a long, savoury and persistent finish. A deeply flavoured red best enjoyed with the richest cuts of meat.
The Tulloch Cellar Door Release Limited Edition Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 (RRP $50) is a beautifully generous Cabernet, crafted from premium fruit from a prized, high-altitude vineyard in cool climate Orange. Full-bodied, savoury and intense with a dark core of fruit, firm tannin foundation and a rich yet silken finish. Mouth-watering and textural with well-judged vanillin oak and a juicy finish, it was matured for nine months in French oak to produce a beautifully complex and satisfying wine.
From a Gold medal-winning Montepulciano to an aged Cabernet, a silken Pinot Noir and a full-bodied Tempranillo, everybody’s cellar deserves wines of this calibre. Treat yourself with these ultra-premium reds, usually priced between $45 to $60 RRP, yours for only $40 a
