That said, my notes from Leasingham suggest my favourite of the four was the Individual Vineyard Riesling.  

Bin 7 Riesling is one I’ll be keeping my eye out for in bottle shops and restaurant wine lists, as is the Magnus Cabernet which is as good as you’re likely to find at this price point. 

I thought it represented excellent value for money.

Then, of course, there’s the 2006 Classic Clare Shiraz which made two wines in two days that we’d rated higher than the nameless, but quite pleasant hundred-plus dollar wine previously mentioned which we tend to use as a $100-plus benchmark. 

Up to this moment, the only other dry red in that price range we’ve been able to try was a Grange that’s just a little too good to be used as a punches above its weight benchmark.

So I was highly impressed as we left Leasingham and headed south in search of lunch. 

On to Kirrihill
