First prize

One 750ml bottle of Penfolds Bin 128 Shiraz 2004 | Valued at AUD$89.99

This is a rare and old wine that exist probably only in private cellars! Released from the Vinoclock cellar, here's a chance to try an old and rare icon of the Australian wine.
The Bin 128 is the only red in the range of Penfolds Bin releases that isn’t a multi regional blend being sourced solely from Coonawarra. The other point of difference is that no American oak is used in the production of this wine. The wine was matured for 12 months in a combination of new (22%), one and two year old French oak hogsheads.
Opaque black crimson colour with black purple hue. Classic top note of vanilla and blackberry followed by a hint of chocolate and spice, showing a very appealing perfumed lift. The palate displays very good weight and mouthfeel. Flavours of spice, vanilla, plum and blackberry. This is a much richer wine than past vintages of Bin 128. Fine grained tannins, with very long aftertaste of spice, liquorice and vanilla.

Second prize

One 750ml bottle of Passing Clouds Graeme's Blend Shiraz Cabernet 2018 | Valued at AUD$34.00

The Graeme’s is the foundational wine of Passing Clouds. First made in 1980, their belief is this wine perfectly captures Bendigo as a region as well as speaking to Passing Clouds’ stewardship. It is well known for its longevity, cellaring up to 30 years. However, we prefer to drink it in the region of 10 years old. The Graeme’s is an embodiment of a wine greater than the sum of its parts.

Third prize

One 750ml bottle of Atze's Corner A Label Estate Shiraz 2016 | Valued at AUD$25.00

As with all Atze’s wines, this Barossa Shiraz Estate has been made using the traditional artisan approach - destemmed without crushing, delicately moved to the fermenter to keep the grapes intact, hand pumped over and basket pressed to create a pure and expressive Barossa Shiraz Estate wine.

The peppery spice, the vanilla of oak, the dark fruits and liquorice of the aroma flow through to the palate and wrap the rich tannins in a layer of flavour. You’re left with a lingering finish of cacao and the hope that there’s another glass available.

This Barossa Valley Shiraz is not to be missed!
