Here are the Wine Companion tasting notes for each of these very special wines:

Limited Release 2017 Heathcote Sangiovese - 93 points

"Fresh anise, mint and jubey berry flavours present an immaculate case, tobacco-like aspects only aiding the cause. Impeccable."

Ballerina Canopy 2016 Durif - 93 points

"Such a firm, steady hand. The oak is sawdusty and raw, and mars things a touch, but the firmness of the tannin, the glide of red berried fruit, the touches of licorice; the stuffing is significant. Give it time and it will all come together. It has a long journey ahead."

Ballerina Canopy 2016 Shiraz - 92 points

"The positive impression continues. As with many of the most recent releases out of this workhorse winery fruit freshness is to the fore, as indeed is flavour generosity. It tastes of plum, vanilla cream, gum nut and sweet red cherries. It's not half bad."

Tobacco Road 2017 Sangiovese Rose - 91 points

"90/10% sangiovese and shiraz from the King Valley and Rutherglen. Vibrant cherry and spice aromatics before a juicy, engaging palate. Fruity, savoury and dry at once. Not a hair out of place. High value."

High Country 2017 Tempranillo - 90 points

"King Valley. Purple colour and purple fruits. The Gapsted range seems to have picked things up a gear lately. This is fresh, jubey and moreish. It should definitely be on your shopping list."

Limited Release 2016 Saperavi - 90 points

"Wild. Totally. Truffles, heightened blackcurrant, herbs, spices, licorice, chocolate and blood orange. What doesn't it taste of. For all its myriad flavours, it has a bright appeal; it has size but it's not an overly big wine, and tannin has been kept lowish key."
