Three bottles each of:
Eldredge Blue Chip Shiraz 2018
The colour is dark brick red with purple hues. The aromas are of spicy dark berry fruits with just a hint of toasty vanillan oak. The full-flavoured palate is awash with flavours of plums and black fruits, enhanced by silky fine grain tannins; the finish is rich and smooth. It is drinking beautifully now and will cellar well for a decade.
Primo Estate Zamberlan Cabernet Sangiovese 2019
A full bodied and rich red with succulent cassis fruit notes over chocolate and tobacco. The Sangiovese gives the wine a savoury finish with a burst of cherry fruit character. Incredibly intense and complex with rich, ripe dark berry fruit and a nutmeg spice. Dark chocolate from the Ripasso process is counterbalanced with a burst of maraschino cherry from the Sangiovese.
Robert Oatley Hancock Shiraz Grenache 2018
Restrained and supple, lots of ripe dark plum, pepper and spice of Shiraz with the rose petal perfume and red cherry flavours of Grenache. Lovely lightness and brightness to the back palate makes it terrific immediate drinking wine but it will cellar nicely for 5-10 years.
Willows Barossa Shiraz 2016
Dense, vibrant colour is a feature of this brooding beauty, along with very ripe, sweet fruit, reminiscent of plum, blackberry and pepper on the nose. The palate is generous, ripe and mouth filling exhibiting berry and cinnamon spice flavours, along with oak-derived mocha overtones and harmonious, soft yet defined tannins.

We have been enjoying the Super Reds for a couple of years now and are almost never disappointed with the wines we get. Only once was there one wine not to our taste and it was immediately refunded - fabulous service.
We can rely on Craig to select and advise on these wines and cannot recommend highly enough.
