These wines have strength, intensity, and glorious grape tannins, which wind the palate together, almost like a double helix. The complex structure pulls you straight through.
On the nose they have a unique characteristic, which can't be clearly identified, but can only be described as Koomilya.
They illustrate what I'm hoping modern McLaren Vale Shiraz will be, which harps back to a tradition of what it looked like in the 1960s, without all the artifice of winemaking." - Steve Pannell

2015 DC Block Shiraz$110.00
Cool and aromatic, reminiscent of the Australian bush with blood plums, fresh prunes, citrus and fresh herbs
The most tannic wine I make. Pleasingly ripe, rich flavours filling all corners of the mouth with blue fruits and Eau de Vie. A finish of dusty earth and roasted meats.
2015 JC Block Shiraz$110.00
The difficulty with truly great wine is describing it. The nuance and complexity seem almost out of grasp. JC is an assault of many aromas and flavours that sweep together in one fluid motion, bound in the Koomilya signature of split redwood and mahogany.
Silky tannins play across the back palate, soft yet powerful, enveloping and supple with deep spice and cassis flavours that surprise and delight.
2016 CP Cabernet Sauvignon
Typical cassis and red currant to start then bramble and dry dirt road finishing with sumac, Za’atar, rose hip, cranberry and mahogany.
Perfectly ripe Cabernet with no herbaceous character. An open knit palate, generous and opulent without being over done. Fine tannins beautifully resolved that carry the finish well over the horizon.
2015 Estate Shiraz$70.00
Creaming soda, blackberry, cocoa powder, dried herbs, rust and red dust.
Action packed with a backbone of acidity. A lesson in contradiction: complex yet light, elegant yet tannic, sweet fruit yet umami with a finish that offers a warm embrace.
2015 Cabernet Shiraz$70.00
Western red cedar, red currants, blackcurrant, mace, rhubarb and vanilla pods.
Medium-bodied, with a sweet-fruited, drying and persistent palate of musk sticks, Pekoe tea leaves, layers of red fruits, red clay tiles and pancetta.
A strangely and unexpectedly Italian style.
2017 Tempranillo Touriga$50.00
Blackberry, fruits of the forest, red toffee- apple, roast beetroot, smoky paprika & Dutch cocoa.
Red toffee apple and blackberry on entry followed by the earthier elements of cocoa and paprika finishing with Touriga’s signature fruit mince and plum pudding. There is a tension to the texture from a firm spine surrounded by generosity. The tannins ripple and repeat folding back on themselves.
