Tidswell Heathfield Shiraz 2015

Already aged 5 years the complex aromas of blackcurrant cassis, dark plums, add to this, savory and spicy balanced oak tones and a hint of dark chocolate all complete the overall nose. Now the palate is sultry with soft tannins, sweet currant fruit with layers of balanced oak, spice on the front and astringent at the back. This leads to a good depth of finish. Enjoy now or over the next 3+ years. Stephen Read

Allegiance Wines Unity Barossa Valley Shiraz 2018

Rich purple and bold red in the glass. Herbaceous and mint flavours together with fragrant spice on the nose. The expected follow up does not disappoint. Lashings of dark chocolate, clove, savoury and spice stewed plums aplenty. Collectively it has a lovely weight and fills the palate with satisfying mouth feel. The silky and grippy tannins, together with a good dollop of 14.5% alcohol, complete a wonderful crescendo to this well made Barossa Shiraz. Drinking well now but will just get better in the next 10 years. Leo Daly

Allegiance Wines Unity Margaret River Chardonnay 2019

Light straw in colour. The nose offers up a tight citrus, apple and vanilla nuances. The palate is a complex array of white peach, melon and some butterscotch characters that deliver a beautiful example of cool climate Chardonnay at it’s best. It lingers long on the finish that is clean and crisp. A delight now but will only fatten up with 5 years in the cellar. Leo Daly
