Australia

Kangaroo Vinyard Australian wine is easily among the fastest growing categories in our inventory. While many equate Aussie wines with “value,” there are more than a few extremely rare and pricey options, which never fail to earn the highest ratings from wine publications and critics throughout the world. It is true that the greatest strides in Australian winemaking have come in the last 30 years or so, but commercial viticulture began as early as the 1820s and has developed uninterrupted ever since.

2013 Leeuwin "Art Series" Cabernet Sauvignon Margaret River Western Australia (Elsewhere $55)

97 points Bob Campbell: "Deep red/purple: an outstanding color in depth and hue. The bouquet is clean, fresh and alive, with bright black fruit and violet aromas, touches of cedar and toasty oak, the palate very deep and concentrated, with lush fruit and abundant tannins, which counter-balance the fruit and sweetness. A powerful yet elegant Cabernet with a very long and distinguished future ahead of it. An outstanding, profound wine.

(08/2018) 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Black cherries and black olives mark the nose of the 2015 The Dead Arm Shiraz, d'Arenberg's flagship bottling. It's a blend of older and younger vines from different sites, depending on what the fruit has to offer.

2015 Vasse Felix Cabernet Sauvignon Margaret River Western Australia (Elsewhere $40)

95 points James Halliday: "A medium weight cabernet to show more bulkier renditions a clean set of heels. This is a slashing way to present cabernet. Energetic and bright yet fluid and soft. It boasts just enough weight, and power, to build good momentum through the palate but at no point does it press too hard, or for too much. Bay leaf, black olive and blackcurrant flavours are the main conveyors here. Tannin is a light sheet through the back half of the wine. The touch is light, the effect dramatic."

Deeply colored; this is at once full-bodied and elegant, not a common marriage with young red wines with decades in front of them. The flavors are all black: blackberry, blackcurrant, black cherry, earth and licorice. The old vines have also provided ripe tannins, the whole theme resonated with oak a la Grange."

The palate has more drive than promised by the colour or bouquet, with spice and wild herbs joining the red fruits. Early picking has enhanced freshness and the pleasantly grippy finish.

One of six '14 Xanadu cabernets, you really need to keep your wits about you. Great colour is no surprise, nor is the majesty of the cassis-filled bouquet and palate.

The Willow Lake Vineyard is the oldest in the Upper Yarra, and one of the oldest in the entire Valley. This wine has a vibrancy, an edge, giving it a mouthfeel and set of flavours firmly anchored on grapefruit, which the Barkala Ridge doesn't have. Great success for the vintage."
