The world of wines is a world of variety. If you need help deciding between a fruity white or mellow red, you're in the right place. Read and write reviews on all types of wines, including sherry and port. Sparkling wines have a category all to themselves.
Made from three of Australia's top red varietals (Shiraz, Merlot and Cabernet) and only in Australia would you find these three varieties together, this is a wine which was produced from grapes carefully chosen for their utmost quality. Fermented at a higher temperature than the white wine in the range, the wine was aged in oak barrels to give it intense varietal fruit characters with complex oak flavours. It will develop appreciably in your cellar for up to five years after being bought.
Brand: Badgers Creek
1996, Mid to deep plum with some leather on the nose. Juicy fruit with coaly tones and some quite vibrant, persistent acidity of fruit.
1997, A typical Cabernet with a strong blackcurrant aroma. Very intense and powerful on the palate. Great aging potential.
1998, Mid-lemon with a greenish tint. Lemon and lime favour and a quite pungent aroma. Some weight.
1999, A complex wine produced with a skillful use of oak that adds interest without being dominant. Rich mouth-filling fruit and a fine partner for grilled fish or mango chutney.
1999, Mid-yellow with some toast and butter oak on the nose. Creamy, buttery fruit on the palate with vanilla in the finish.
1998, Mid-lemon with toast and butter on the nose plus a hint of lemon. Marked, creamy malolactic flavours and mouth-filling fruit.
Fresh and fruity red wine
The Bin 50 has ripe generous fruit, a 'cracked' black pepper finish and just a touch of oak. Particularly good with barbecue-flavoured ribs, pasta bolognese or flavoursome cheese.
