2018 Penfolds "Bin 28" Kalimna Shiraz
South Australia


94 Points - James Suckling:

"A strong vintage for warmer-climate shiraz and this wine is certainly reaping the benefits. The nose has such eclectic fruit aromas that run a full spectrum, from the lighter spiced red-fruit aromas to red plums, through blue fruit to darker blackberries and plums. The palate has impressively layered flavors that run the same broad spectrum as seen on the nose and the tannins are so well groomed and run very, very long. Holds fruit flavor deep. Will age very well for 15-plus years. Drink or hold." - (22 Jul, 2020)

93 Points, Rank #41 Top 100 of 2020 - Wine Spectator:
"Shows terrific concentration, with dense and chewy tannins providing an appealing backdrop to the blueberry, dried cherry, date and candied ginger flavors. Tobacco, tomato leaf and espresso notes linger on the finish. Drink now through 2030. 9,560 cases imported." - MW (Nov 2020)

93 Points - Wine Advocate:
"While named for a Barossa vineyard/locale, the 2018 Bin 28 Kalimna Shiraz, like other recent vintages, is blended from various South Australian GIs. With its rich, dark-berried fruit accented with vanilla, it does a more-than-credible job re-creating that northern Barossan idiom. It's full-bodied, concentrated and plush without going over the top, finishing long and velvety. While it may not have single-vineyard snob appeal, it's a delicious wine for drinking over the next decade and a relative value." - Joe Czerwinski (22nd Jul 2020)


2021 Ottella "Le Creete" Lugana DOC
North Italy


95 Points - Decanter:

"Francesco Montresor left a legal profession to take over the family estate, converting it from mixed agriculture to viticulture. The property, one of the oldest in Lugana, has 95ha in various plots in the Veronese part of the DOC, including vineyards directly overlooking Lake Garda. Creete is a toothsome late-picked, single-vineyard selection with a hint of tropical fruits and candied peel on the nose then a rich palate sustained by succulent acidity and a long, dry finish. Drinking Window 2022 - 2028." -RB (2/22)

 

92 Points, #75 Top 100 '21 - Wine Enthusiast:
"Aromas of elderflower, citrus and tropical fruit lead the nose. Tangy and savory, the vibrant palate offers grapefruit, gooseberry and pineapple before a saline finish." - KK (9/1/21)
