Rolf Binder is one of the Barossa's quiet achieving superstars, recipient of the most conspicuous national accolades, Barossa Winemaker of Year and Best Small Producer, Best Barossa Shiraz Trophy and coveted listing in the illustrious Langtons Classification of Australian Wine. Binder's focus has always been on old vines fruit, in particular, the abstruse canon of early settler varietals which populated Barossa Valley during the 1840s. Wild bush vines Mataro, picked off patches at Tanunda along Langmeil Road, ancient growths of Grenache from Gomersal and Light Pass. Rolf's tour de force are eight superlative rows of Shiraz, established 1972 by the Binders junior and senior, which yield a mere 250 dozen of the most spectacular, full bodied Barossa flagship. The profound opulence of Rolf Binder's Hanisch is matched in no lesser way by the sublime excellence of the estate's Barossa Shiraz, not to be missed at $21, a most opportune entry into the felicitous house of Rolf..

Laphroaig Quarter Cask Islay Malt 700ml

Scotch Whisky
Laphroaig takes inspiration from the small casks used for Scotch Whisky in the 19th century and frequently transported across the Glens by packhorse. As the industry grew, they fell into disuse – bigger and more cost effective barrels became the norm, for maturation and transportation. However as single malt lovers may know, the relationship between the barrels and the maturing spirit is critical. Small cask size gives up to 30% greater contact with the wood, greatly intensifying the maturation process and enhancing the whisky.
Laphroaig has decided to recreate some of the Quarter Casks and the flavours they produce. Maturing Laphroaig Malts from larger style barrels are transferred into Quarter Casks. There then followed a further periods of maturation in Dunnage Warehouse No1. For greater authenticity, the whisky was barrier filtered, the method used in those far off days, and bottled at a higher alcoholic strength. The resultant Whisky is a surprise and delight. The additional oak influence creates a soft sweetness and velvety feel when first tasted, then the intense peatiness so unique to Laphroaig, comes bursting through. The finish is very long and alternates between the sweetness and the peat
Deep amber hues. Burning embers of peat in a crofters fireplace, sweet intense malt and lovely, refreshing citrus as well. Mouth-watering, mouth-filling and mouth-astounding: the perfect weight of the smoke has no problems filling every crevice of the palate, builds towards a sensationally sweet maltiness at the middle. Really long, and dries appropriately with smoke and spice.
