5 reviews for ‘Three-Card Monte’ Shiraz Cabernet Montepulciano 2018

  1. Cathie Stephens

    We love this wine!! Just so well blended- it’s smooth and delicious. It’s our favourite Friday night bottle .

  2. Russell (Sawtell NSW)

    Great blending achieved with this wine. Mouthfilling fruit with a long dry finish. Just a little young to drink right now. I think it will rate five stars in a year or two with a long life ahead of it.

  3. Steve Grimbergen

    A real easy drinking red with beautiful fruit flavours. All the best bits of the Shiraz and Cabernet! A fantastic Friday night wine!

  4. Jamie Ray

    Great wine for all occasions, will benefit from age in the cellar. Great with all hearty foods. Another quality wine from the great Hugh Hamilton winery!

  5. James Foster

    Just never disappoints! Each bottle is like catching up with an old friend. Whether that old friend is a Lamb Ragout, a classic rustic Italian pizza or a braised brisket is for you to decide. The colour is deep and the vibrancy of the Shiraz and Cabernet are striking with hints of plums, currants and capsicum. But the real Ace in this 3 card trick is the Montepulciano that comes in late on the pallet. Supposedly it will cellar well for 10 years but I’ll never find out,, I’m too busy catching up with old friends.

Winemaker's Notes Australia has always excelled in creating red blends – merging classic European varieties in un-thought of ways to create unthinkably good new combinations. Cabernet and Shiraz are one such classic collision; Bordeaux meets the Rhone. It’s only Australian to add a slab of Abruzzo too.
Drink 3-10 years
Bouquet Dramatic lift of char, iron, iodine, and pure plums; all this with utter aplomb. Smouldering French oak, soft black liquorice and treacle. Muscular, taut, and textured.
Palate A hulking heavy-hitter with impeccable poise that lip smacks and face slaps its way out of the glass. Wound tighter than a watch-spring, this three-card is both compelling and delicious. As always, a sure bet and sure to please.
Food Match Smoky BBQ – ribs, brisket, shoulder, ‘shrooms or aubergines.
