"Here’s a fine, savoury and crunchy Pinot Noir. Cherry, spice, some smoky reduction and autumn leaves kind of gear. Gentle lick of tannin, pleasing sappiness, and a red fruited finish of fair length, some peel-like bitterness in the aftertaste. Good value on offer here." Gary Walsh
Item Code: ITM17452
Juicy berry fruits and fruit cake-like aromas mix with subtle floral notes creating an inviting nose. On the palate dark plum, boysenberry and blackberry flavours are supported by well-integrated oak. Silky tannins provide balance, depth and persistence resulting in a well-rounded Shiraz.
Item Code: ITM5043
This wine exhibits pronounced notes of blackcurrant and cedar alongside savoury herbal notes. The palate offers fleshy dark fruits and fresh acidity, which is integrated with a sweet clip of new oak. Length is excellent.
Item Code: ITM5648
Take rose petal and raspberry aromas and add a textured savoury palate. Perfect spring/summer drinking.
Item Code: ITM6446
"Hand-picked, wild yeast open-fermented, matured in new and used French oak. Archetypal cool climate, medium-bodied, shiraz. Its core of red and black cherry fruit has flecks of pepper, licorice and spice, the tannins smooth and supple, the oak totally integrated. Lovely style." Halliday Wine Companion
Item Code: ITM20549
Intense in flavour but with an appealing lightness of touch, this elegant Syrah combines red and black fruits with savoury characters. New oak plays a part without dominating the fruit and tannins are fine-grained. The wine will age with grace but is already drinking well.
Item Code: ITM6179
"Takes a little time to wind up and get into gear, but having done so offers a very complex bouquet of plums and baker's spices, the palate gaining length and purpose each time I came back to it, although the flavour spectrum didn't crumble." Halliday Wine Companion
Item Code: ITM20293
Bright red fruits on the nose that open up onto a palate of raspberry, dark cherry and hints of savoury spices. Medium-bodied with soft tannins gives a fine acid structure to a long finish.
Item Code: ITM18633
"Wild yeast open-fermented with 20% whole bunches, matured for 7 months in French oak (10% new), gravity bottled. Very good colour; the intensity of the aromas and flavours unfolding with the first sip stop you in your tracks. The whole bunch component is evident, but not dominant, simply one of many factors in shaping the flavour and texture of this lovely wine." Halliday Wine Companion
Item Code: OLG317324
"Firm, fruit-filled, kissed with classy oak and then savoury to close. An excellent example of Australian tempranillo. Cherry, cola, cloves and an array of dried spices. Good depth of fruit; nothing wimpy about this. A bit of grunt to the tannin too. It pushes the ripeness envelop – and carries some warmth as a result – but just stops short of overdoing it." Campbell Mattinson
Item Code: ITM6832
"Herb and spice notes sit deep within a pool of cherry, plum and clove. This velvety red pours on the charm, the fruit and spice characters married quite perfectly. Flavour and style are excellent. The only detraction is the warmth of the finish, though it’s by no means fatal. It’s a very good example of Yarra Valley shiraz." Campbell Mattinson
Item Code: ITM6834
Delicacy and structure combined in the way only a good Pinot can. Intoxicating cherry and smoked meat aromas lead to cranberry tartness on the palate and plentiful fine tannins.
Item Code: ITM6836
Graceful yet powerful, this Syrah offers a beautifully structured savoury palate of red and black fruits coupled with light pepper and fine-grained tannins, all bound together by a sweet clip of new oak. This is a soft and intense wine of elegance and poise.
Item Code: ITM4781
"[it's] perfumed and has more sweetness to its fruit than many of its vintage brethren. You could almost drink this young and get the full experience though it will benefit greatly given time to soften and evolve. Forest berries, spice, cool garden herbs, mineral and a kiss of sweet/cedary/smoky oak. The fruit feels silken, the tannin feels gruff, but they’re not at odds, they’re managing to get along. It’s going places, this pinot noir." Campbell Mattinson
