Orin Swift Abstract 20170 out of 5(0)
Expansive aromas of ripe red fruits—raspberries, bing cherries and strawberries—and a touch of boysen- and huckleberries open the nose. The aromas continue onto the palate with added layers of charred meat, rhubarb, thyme, surrounding a dark fruit core. Smooth, enveloping and lasting, the wine finishes with a pleasing maraschino cherry note. Aged for 8 months in a combination of new and seasoned French Oak.

Maipo Valley, Chile
Lively aromas of blackberry, blueberry and dried cherry intertwine with vanilla and cedar notes. A smooth silky texture with ﬁne tannins and balance, providing a beautiful and lingering ﬁnish. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon.
The Primus vineyards are located on the third alluvial terrace of the Alto Maipo, at the foot of the Andes Mountains. The grapes are hand-picked, double sorted, fermented in open top tanks with native yeasts, and left on the skins after fermentation to gain structure and depth.

Primus Carménère 20170 out of 5(0)
Apalta – Colchagua Valley, Chile
Red fruit aromas, with cedar and boldo notes. On the palate it is fresh and fruity, with ﬂavors of cherry and hints of pepper and rosemary. Silky, with velvety tannins and great mouthfeel.
There was little rainfall during the season, concentrated in the winter months. Temperatures rose signiﬁcantly near the end of spring, with record high temperatures, and the beginning of harvest was unusually early. The grapes were harvested with optimum ripeness, giving way to wines of great concentration and ﬂavor intensity, and excellent balance between acidity and tannins.SKU: PRM02-1700750-RD
Handpicked Regional Selection Rosé 20180 out of 5(0)
Yarra Valley, Australia
This wine was grown at our Highbow Hill Vineyard north of Yarra Glen township. The soils are sandy loam over clay and gravel over Yarra Valley mudstone. The Pinot Noir and Marsanne were planted in 1998.
Varietal: Pinot Noir 95%, Marsanne 5%
The colour is a clear light salmon, what the French would call “eye of partridge”. The nose has vibrant red fruit and spice aromas and the palate is surprisingly weighty with juicy fruit flavours and savoury complexity enhanced by great texture. This wine is perfect for sipping on its own and will pair handsomely with a range of foods – pan fried rainbow trout with new potatoes, smoked salmon and cucumber sandwiches, sushi.SKU: HDP09-1800750-RS
Opus One 20100 out of 5(0)
The 2010 vintage will be long remembered as a uniquely demanding year. Mother Nature was capricious and challenging in presenting us with tremendous variability – unseasonably cold days, untimely rainfall, and surprisingly sunny and hot days. While colder than normal, the leaves were able to produce the needed sugar, while the grape berries developed lovely and complex flavor and aroma components. Bud break and flowering were eight days later than the 5-year average. Unexpectedly high temperatures in late August and September allowed the vines to finish the growing season very well. Having left the sufficient number of leaves on the vines so as to have a full canopy, our grapes avoided possible sunburn from this late season heat. The success of the 2010 harvest was assured when we correctly assessed the early maturity of the grapes and had the confidence to pick at the first sight of ripeness. Harvest began on September 23 and succinctly concluded thirty-one days later on October 23.
Aromas of fresh blackberry, rose petals, chocolate and espresso accentuate a profound tapestry of fruity and earthy nuances. Round velvety tannins enrobe a silky texture with a slight touch of minerality. The flavors of dark fruit are enhanced by the well-integrated acidity. The acidity and tannin structure promise a very long life ahead for this wine.
