95 Points - Jeni Port
Hailed by critics and wine lovers alike, Dalwhinnie has been growing grapes for nearly 50 years and is now a fully mature vineyard, producing wines that are distinctive, elegant and reflect the benefit of a dry-grown vineyard. Located near the small village of Moonambel in the heart of the Pyrenees region of Western Victoria, this iconic producer consistently delivers some of Australia's most sought-after examples of cool-climate Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay.
The 2018 Dalwhinnie Moonambel Shiraz has lovely lifted aromas; dark ripe rich and sweetly spiced, intense black cherries and lifted rose petals. A rich wine with an underlying elegance, this has concentrated dark bramble patch fruits, with freshness and incredibly fine skin tannins. The mid palate is full, with remarkable length and plenty of fine, chocolate savoury tannins. As with all great Dalwhinnie Shiraz, this will continue to build over the coming decade.
"95 Points. Strikes a generous pose and colour. There's some pretty smart attractive oak that is a big part of this wine's appeal. It contributes added gravitas, with wide-ranging influences from prominent spice to a toasty, smoky, mocha overlay. The ripe blackberry, plum, aniseed fruit loves it. Mouth-coating and long"- Jeni Port, Halliday Wine Companion 2022.
