Four New Releases, Autumn 2018

Harvest for the 2018 vintage is nearly done and dusted, and we are thrilled to be offering four new and incredible wines online. Check out what the wine writers have been saying so far….

Obsidian Reserve Chardonnay 2017 - $48.00 per bottle

This is stylishly opulent on the nose showing nectarine, rockmelon, brioche and cedar characters, followed by a concentrated palate that is richly fruited and generously textured. The wine delivers gorgeous complexity and harmony, finishing superbly long and attractive” – 94 Points, Sam Kim, Wine Orbit

Obsidian Estate Syrah 2016 - $35.00 per bottle

Dark, deep, black-hued ruby-red colour, a little lighter on the rim with a suggestion of garnet. The nose is elegantly presented with fragrant aromas of blackberries and dark raspberries, along with white and black pepper notes, and subtle nuances of spice intermixed with violet florals and hints of reductive minerals. Medium-bodied, the palate is elegantly presented with smooth and luscious flavours of dark raspberries and blackberries, harmoniously melded with white pepper. The palate is silky in flow with soft, supple tannins and the fruit is enlivened by slippery acidity. The wine carries easily to a lingering finish of dark raspberries and pepper. This is an elegant and smooth-flowing, slippery Syrah with dark raspberry, blackberry and white pepper flavours. Match with Middle Eastern fare over the next 3+ years” – 4 Stars, Raymond Chan Wine Reviews

Obsidian ‘The Mayor’ 2016 - $54.00 per bottle

The wine offers lovely ripe fruit aromas of blackcurrant and dark plum together with mixed spice, game, hazelnut and floral nuances. The palate is succulent and beautifully weighted, delivering excellent fruit purity backed by fine texture and delicate savoury complexity. The wine displays lovely balance and harmony, finishing persistent and fine. Predominantly cabernet franc with petit verdot and Malbec” – 93 Points, Sam Kim, Wine Orbit

Obsidian ‘The Obsidian’ 2014 - $75.00 per bottle

“A flagship blend of red Bordeaux varieties from an excellent vintage. Rich, weighty wine with an array of berry flavours that are seasoned with floral, spice and fresh herb flavours. Bold, complex wine that gives a nod in the direction of Bordeaux. Serious red for the cellar” – 96 Points, Bob Campbell MW
