Shadowfax new releases and 2011 Minnow
For those of you who missed our Friday night Shadowfax tasting, you missed all the new releases and in particular the Minnow!
Minnow is a vineyard blend of Cinsault, Carignan, Grenache and Mataro. Look out the cellar door window and there is the vineyard - in downtown Werribee!
This is a fantastic lighter weight wine that is bursting with morello cherries and savoury flavours and aromas. The tangy acid and soft tannins makes it extremely versatile and great drinking with a wide range of foods. It is probably too drinkable!

Wines of The Week

Blue Pyrenees

Blue Pyrenees wines are really kicking goals. All of them are our Wines of the Week! Super special prices included.

Cabernet Sauvignon 2010
At our recent Pyrenees Cabernet tasting, we highlighted how good, but overlooked, the area is for Cabernet Sauvignon. The Blue Pyrenees Cabernet Sauvignon is an excellent example with exceptional value. A vibrant clear deep red colour with aromas of the typical eucalyptus, mint and blackcurrants.The palate has velvet-like blackcurrants and blackberries that sit over a base of chocolaty soft tannins. These flavours stay in the mouth for ages - some people would not go that far for a holiday!
Merlot 2010
A Merlot with real style! Not only does it have the stewed plum flavours but also some lovely darker fruit and a good lick of French oak adding that bit of creaminess.The length is amazing. The mouthfeel is just great. Drink it now or put a few bottles away.
Shiraz 2009
This wine looks really good in the glass - bright ruby red. It has lovely "drink me" smell of clove, blueberry with an allspice lift and vanilla lurking in the background. It is not lacking anything in the flavour department. Blueberry, dark chocolate and vanilla bean sit nicely over the French oak. Great drinking now but it will reward astute cellaring.
Sauvignon Blanc 2011
The kangaroos like the Sauvignon Blanc grapes. It is good they left some as we like the wine! The splash of Semillon in it adds the lemongrass aromas that mingle with the tang of gooseberry. The gooseberries sit over a fine mineral base on the palate. Stacks of fruit!
Chardonnay 2010
Amazing value! All off mature estate grown vines and spent some time in French oak (1 - 4 years old). Great aromatics of white peaches, lychees along with cedar and a light toast character. Stoned fruit and grapefruit mingle on the palate giving terrific length and moutnhfeel. A good medium term cellaring proposition as well as drinking now.
The reds are only $16.95 per bottle
The white are only $14.95 per bottle
These prices are super specials until 24 May 2012 or while stocks last.
Don't miss out!
