Dow's Tawny is bottled ready to drink after an average of three years of cask aging. It has a t-cap closure, which means that you don't need a corkscrew to open it and that it will stay fresh for four to six months if stored in a cool, dark place or refrigerator. Serve it in a glass with at least a six ounce capacity so that you may appreciate the wine's aromas. Dow's Tawny is delicious with soft ripened cheeses, flan or fruit tarts. In warmer months, try it chilled for a refreshing dessert in a glass.

Really this is everything you'd expect from quality Port maker Dow's. Nicely balanced without too much syrupy sweetness; just enough acid to keep it fresh and crisp on the palate. It's still got a bit of ruby tint to it in normal light, but if all you have are torches (as we did when this bottle was opened) it looks pretty darn tawny. Lovely after dinner sipper.

17.5/20 Raymond Chan
"Full, near-saturated black-red colour with youthful purple hues. This has an elegantly concentrated and rich nose of ripe blackberry and plum fruit entwined with notes of liquorice and cedary, toasty oak, along with hints of oak resin, eucalypt and chocolate. Medium-full bodied, the fruit flavours are a little restrained, but unfold to show sweet, ripe plum and liquorice notes. Blackberry, earth, cedary oak and eucalypt layers add detail. The mouthfeel is plush and juicy, and balanced by supple tannin extraction lending structure, presence and weight. The wine flows with underlying alcohol power, carrying to a fresh, sustained finish with liquorice and cedar notes. This is a weighty, ripe, supple Shiraz with restrained plum, liquorice and cedary flavours. Match with barbecued and roasted red meats and casseroles over the next 5+ years." Raymond Chan


Evenwood Barossa Shiraz has been our number one selling red wine for the last 7 years. The 2015 is a new vintage and is tasting better than ever. In the glass the wine has deep red and garnet hues. This follows through to a generous nose of spice, mulberry preserve, dark chocolate, mocca and vanilla tones. Complexity builds as the wine opens further with hints of earthy beetroot and tea rose. The savoury palate shows blood plums with sweet spice leading onto soft tannins.

Evenwood Barossa Shiraz has been our number one selling red wine for the last 6 years and we are very pleased to offer the new Evenwood Premium Reserve Shiraz.This wine shows all the hallmarks of Barossa Shiraz in a balanced and restrained package. The fruit aromatics are all about red plum, cherries and savoury herbs. This is a medium to full depth wine with balanced fruit concentration. The palate is full of savouriness, texture, black olives and has an evenness flowing from start to finish. This is about being soft and supple yet also rich and textural; an even line of tannins completes the wine. Cellar for 5 to 7 years.

4 Stars - Joelle Thomson "A meaty dark red with pronounced 
grainy tannins, a full body and lots of life ahead of it, thanks to its muscular power.
 This wine is good value for money, drinks 
well now and is best served in a large glass to allow the air to soften its tannins; cellar
 
for 4 to 5 years" Joelle Thomson
