  1. Christine Salins

    2016 Estate Cabernet Shiraz – Christine Salins (June 2019)

    While the Canberra region has great success with Riesling and Shiraz, a lot of people are unaware that it also produces some fine Cabernet, especially around Murrumbateman where Shaw Vineyard is located. Graeme Shaw has had great success with Cabernet over the years and this 2016 blend is no exception. Both 2015 and 2016 were excellent vintages for Shaw Cabernet, and so for these two vintages, Shaw chose to produce an 85% Cabernet 15% Shiraz blend rather than the predominantly Shiraz blend favoured in previous vintages. Matured in French oak for 22 months, this classy red has generous notes of blueberries and blackberries, with subtle hints of pepper and spice. It’s already scooped up a few awards in international competitions, which is not surprising as in our eyes it is definitely a winner.

  2. Huon Hooke

    2016 Estate Cabernet Shiraz – Huon Hooke (March 2019)

    Deep, bright, bold red/purple colour with a bright vanilla and blackberry aroma. The wine is intense and concentrated, deep and bold and lively, with intense flavour and freshness. The grip is strong and drying. A big, solid, slightly nervy wine that will age well.

    91/100

  3. John Rozentals

    2016 Estate Cabernet Shiraz – John Rozentals (March 2019)

    This blend of 85 per cent cabernet and 15 per cent shiraz comes entirely from the family’s vineyard at Murrumbateman, near Canberra. It’s a lovely example of a classic Australian blend, with the hallmarks of both varieties — the minty leanness of cabernet and the softer richness of shiraz.

    2016 Estate Cabernet Shiraz – QWine (January 2019)

    Juicy black fruit the highlight in this blend from the Canberra district.

    An easy slurp. Aniseed, black olives, dried thyme and licks of vanilla. Black and blue fruits are plentiful and energetic. Tight and sapping to finish, it’s a good drink.

    Drink now to six years.

    89/10
