MCLAREN VALE VS WA RED DOZEN HAS SOLD OUT. This is a replacement dozen.
“The Margaret River region is justifiably famous for Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Semillon Sauvignon Blanc blends, but I particularly enjoy visiting the more remote Great Southern regions of Denmark, Mount Barker and Frankland River and the Pemberton/Manjimup area in the south west of the state, where I’m continually coming across premium small producers hidden away amongst the Karri forests.” – Dave Mavor
Only the very best of the fruit from Ferngrove’s expansive vineyards in the Frankland River sub-region is used in the delicious Ferngrove Vineyards Merlot 2011. Lifted minty berry fruit aromas lead to warm palate with dense, spicy dark fruits, a plummy, fleshy core of varietal fruit, youthful tannins and regional herbaceousness.
A gold medal-winner at the Sydney Royal Wine Show, the Xanadu Next of Kin Cabernet Sauvignon 2010 from Margaret River exudes cassis, cedar and currant aromas, while the palate has a vibrant core of curranty fruit, generous berry and cassis characters, subtle cedary oak, ripe tannins and mouth-watering acidity.
Western Australian Shiraz often lives in the shadow of Cabernet, however the Rocky Gully Shiraz 2012 from cool climate Great Southern has certainly made its mark. Aromas of red fruits, licorice and hints of musk introduce a medium weight palate with a lovely structure, balanced tannins and acidity, along with a dry, savoury finish.
Don’t miss out on these Western Australian Wonders and more including a Pinot Noir from Peos Estate and Cabernets by Feet First and Byron & Harold.
