Katnook Estate Shiraz 2010
Silver Medal: International Wine Challenge
"Long, restrained and elegant. A classic example of Coonawarra Shiraz, with alluring blackberry supported by violet and minty notes. Smoky, smooth tannins and incredible length. Very classy."
James Halliday: 94
"Deep, bright crimson; restrained and savoury aromas of black fruits, sage and spicy mocha oak; the palate is medium-to full-bodied, with tightly packed tannins and fresh black fruits, offset by a lingering mocha and floral violet note to conclude."
This little beauty has been a long time coming! We sold out of this in record time last vintage and I naively didn't buy a single case, thinking I'd wait for my next cycle. Well let's just say I was a very unhappy camper when I realised it was literally all gone! You can imagine the sheer joy that came over me when we got an email from the team at Katnook saying new stocks of the 2010 was finally in. This vintage is shaping up to give the '09 a real run for it's money and this time I am already loading up my cellar! The Shiraz coming out of Coonawarra continues to amaze us that it does not have a better reputation because this release from Katnook had us in a frenzy. It’s got some real power as well as cool climate elegance and that’s what won us over, as you will discover. Aged for 15 months in American oak leaving a subtle imprint as well as raspberry and mulberry fruit, mint, pepper and spice. Layered with intense fruit before flavours of chocolate, vanilla and spice round out the palate ending with fine-grained tannins. It could only possibly go with a leg of lamb rubbed with rosemary, salt, mint and garlic.

Wow! I discovered this export brand and was an immediate convert. All my friends are asking for the perfect Chardonnay. Combining real flavour, oak, some spice and a plush , layered mouth finish. Well - dare I say it.... "This is the one!"
Perfect unique flavours of Coonawarra with this seamlessly integrated Chardonnay from a highly regarded winery - it’s alive with vibrant characteristics. Bright lemon in the glass, this Old World style Chardonnay has a leesy nose of savoury citrus, cracked yeast and hints of freshly baked bread. The vibrant, complex palate is layered with seamlessly integrated nut, peach, melon flavours and nice textural persistence. You could spend easily $25 to get something in the vicinity of this little ripper so my advice is to stock up and enjoy!
Match it with a plate of delicious crayfish for the perfectly paired meal.

Millicent Road Chardonnay 2009
Jip Jip Rocks Shiraz 2012
James Halliday: 93
Silver medals in London and China are an interesting duo; the red-pink granite (the Jip Jip rocks) soils are very different to the more common terra rossa of Padthaway and - coupled with the excellent '12 vintage - have invested the medium to full-bodied palate with a velvety mouthfeel to the black fruits and bitter chocolate that might have easily been found in McLaren Vale.
Stunning Value, once again from the Maestro 'Ben Riggs'! Just a superb expression of brilliant Shiraz at a knock down price that blows my mind every sip I take! Jip Jip has been offering up some outrageously good wines this vintage! This Shiraz is another devilish & delicious drop from the vintage that rocks the root stocks. Totally opaque black dark crimson red colour with deep black dark red hue. Aromas of blackberry and plum are followed by a touch of liquorice and some confectionery. Softly textured the palate delivers generous flavours of liquorice, blackberry, confectionery and toast with a spicy back palate. Slightly dryish but balanced tannins with aftertaste of liquorice, toast and spice.
Simply put - this wine engages with you from the get go - I challenge you to show me a better $16 dollar wine?

GOLD MEDAL—International Wine Challenge, 2014
BRONZE MEDAL— Decanter World Wine Awards, 2014

Paging all savvy Shiraz lovers... I might have to call this wine our best kept secret! It not only cleaned the stakes at the international Wine Challenge, it also won the hearts and souls of all the crew over here at Wine Box. We are a pretty lucky lot, surrounded by new and exciting wines day and in day out. It makes work that little bit more rewarding and plus, it means we know exactly what wine to buy for all occasions. Here, well here is the perfect cellar filler. A glorious Shiraz that deservedly has been awarded 95 points, the perfect wine to crack open every night whilst basting those lamb cutlets with lashings of garlic and rosemary before you throw them onto the grill to char away.
Schild Estate's multiple award winning wine!!! A must have option for these cold, winter nights. A deep ruby with bright purple hues. The nose is fragrant, full aromas of blackcurrant and morello cherries supported by subtle hints of licorice and cedar wood. Soft, juicy, dark berry fruit flavours fill the mouth on the front palate along with fleeting glimpses of milk chocolate, violets and sage. This core of primary fruit is framed by a definite, but fine tannin framework providing some scaffolding and allowing the wine to maintain thrust and a clear direction as it travels through the mouth finishing fruity, controlled and long.

Schild Estate Shiraz 2012
Katnook Founder's Block Sauvignon Blanc 2009
"A zesty style, with tropical fruit, and a touch of fresh cut grass; the palate is fresh and lively, finishing dry with lemony acidity." - James Halliday.
Like to think of yourself as a bit of a Sauvy B lover? Well have you ever tried one with a little bit of age on it? This is next level deliciousness! All of the things you love from the best selling variety, but all those harsh acidities softened. What that basically means is a shot of heavenly tropical juice, loads of long lasting flavour and a clean and fruit forward after taste. I'm telling you, Sauv that has been let to sit for at least 3 years is a whole different experience. You will love it, you will share it with your friends and then you will never go back!
Pale straw with just slight hints of light green. Appealing and fresh varietal herbaceous fruit with light tropical tones. Additional lifted hints of lemongrass with citrus and light florals complement the pleasing aromas. A mouth filling palate loaded with attractive subtle herbaceous notes, light gooseberry and fresh citrus flavours. Rich in fruit, the palate is a delicious and intensely flavoured wine with a zesty and lingering fruit finish.

Every now and again we manage to put together a very impressive deal on an international best-sellers. I can't tell you how we do it, but know that this is the best deal you're going to see all week! It's bubbles season, so why not enjoy it with the best from the best!
A sparkling clarity, pale gold in colour. The very first impressions are of bright, fresh mornings. It is reminiscent of spring blossom such as hawthorn. They lead into more fruity notes such as summer apple and pear, then citrus, with hints of warm toastiness. The next impression is lively and fresh. The citrus notes take on a certain maturity. There is passion with gentleness, lightness with spontaneity. Ideal for drinks with friends, cocktail and garden parties, nights spent enjoying every moment until dawn’s early light, informal dinners, and surprises. All manner of choice is permitted! A wine that celebrates joie de vivre, and the pleasure of getting together with the people we love.

Piper-Heidsieck Brut NV
The Bryson Shiraz Cabernet 2009
This wine reminds me of my old man, it's big, bold, has a smoothness and seems to have a sageness about it, like it knows something that I will only find out with another 40 years under my belt. This comes from it's regional heritage, the Padthaway was adopted as home for many well known vineyards in the mid to late 1960's, due to its rich soil, underground water supply and Mediterranean climate with coastal influences.
The liquid is a dark brick red that looks ready to jump out of the glass at you. The opulent youthfulness of it holds the eye. The aromas come at you thick and fast with chocolate coming up first. Mocha, earth, leather, five spice and charcoal complete an intense bouquet of complexity that is presented with finesse. The palate offers lush plum and cherry flavours in a medium bodied style. White pepper meets great, finessed tannins, with a touch of raspberry mulling around. The finish is well defined with soft dark berries and gentle tannins that seem to couple with charcoal wood. Gentle spices see this wine out to the very end.
A wine that can be approached now with ease, but will take it to the next level in another four to five years.

This wine will make you smile all day long. Throw some of this Monster into a glass and it will reveal a deep purple colour. A swirl or two and the vibrancy comes through; sprinkles of red brick flicker through, dancing around under the light. A quick sniff and the aromas are lifted dark cherry, black pepper and spice with floral notes with ripe blackberry and plums coming together in a crescendo of flavour and aromatic heaven.
It is Limestone Coast at is fullest, and that comes through on the palate as well, displaying the stereotypical fruit driven style that this region is famous for. There are forest fruits coupled with spice and a touch of tannin that caresses the sides of the mouth. These soft tannins are a great compliment to the fruit and come to a crescendo on the finish, leaving the mouth feeling full and satisfied with a generous finish.
