The case for Australia's 2018 vintage

Case of 6
The 2018 vintage really was outstanding across the board in Australia. Such was the quality that buyer Freddy Bulmer bought many wines from the vintage to age in our cellars. Many are now singing beautifully and we have six beauties in this singular case.

Wines included

Robert Oatley Finisterre Margaret River Chardonnay 2018

A wonderful example of the quality and fine-wine value that came from the vintage. With a balance of tension, freshness and generosity, this shows hints of tropical fruit, vanilla pod and nuttiness on the nose while the palate has citrus freshness, salinity and great breadth of flavour. Elegant and excellent now, it will age well too.

Tyrrell's Old Hillside Vineyard Hunter Valley Shiraz 2018

Hypnotically fragrant and hauntingly delicious. This new wine comes from the same vineyard as Tyrrell's critically acclaimed Old Patch 1867 Shiraz. It was only available from the cellar door until now, so it is a privilege to be able to offer it to members. Bright, fresh and reminiscent of northern Rhône syrah, with unfurling notes of dark cherries, bramble and spice that are joined by rhubarb and liquorice on the palate.

Australia £27.00 per bottle

Vasse Felix Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

From what's hailed as the best vintage in 40 years, this is a truly spectacular Margaret River cabernet sauvignon. Wonderfully fragrant and luscious West Australian red, with notes of cassis, plum, cedar, cigar box and bay leaf on the nose. The palate is full but fine, with complex and luxurious black fruit and spice flavours. A special glass.

Australia

Wineglass Bay Tasmanian Chardonnay 2018

Claudio Radenti makes exceptionally good chardonnays from his old vines in cool-climate Tasmania. With a touch of fine French oak on the lemon and apple-scented nose, this is a full-flavoured but beautifully elegant chardonnay.

Australia £19.00 per bottle

Robert Oatley Finisterre Great Southern Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

A full-throttle, plummy cabernet sauvignon, with a nice combination of firm structure and ripe, generous fruit character. The palate is grippy and balanced, with notes of pepper, slate and juicy blackcurrant. Decant if drinking now in order to allow the more subtle notes to shine through.

Australia

Leeuwin Estate Art Series Margaret River Shiraz 2018

Although shiraz is less famed in Western Australia's Margaret River region than cabernet, Leeuwin Estate have seen the potential in this grape for doing great things, and adding it to their acclaimed Art Series is an incredible endorsement. Cool nights and maritime influence bring lifted fragrance, depth and style to the wine.
