Mainreak 2011 Cabernet Merlot in Ray Jordan’s Top 100 Australian Red Wines 2014
Prominent Western Australian wine writer, Ray Jordan, has done his annual review of Australian Red Wines. Wineries are invited to submit wines in various price points with a limit of two per brand per category. More than 500 wines came in from all over Australia, representing all of the major and some of the minor wine regions of the country.
Ray had this to say about it.
“This is a reliable second label from Hamelin Bay, just south of Margaret River. Fleshy, fruity mix of firmish cabernet and deep fruit merlot. It’s designed as a drink-now wine, being so soft and round. 90/100.”
Prominent Western Australian wine writer, Ray Jordan, has done his annual review of Australian Red Wines. Wineries are invited to submit wines in various price points with a limit of two per brand per category. Mainbreak 2009 Shiraz was placed in the Top 100.
This is what Ray had to say:
“This year more than 500 wines were submitted from all of the major wine-growing areas and the task of culling this list down to 100 was difficult , to say the least. Even getting down to the final 150 was a challenge.”
Shiraz $15-$20 “This was the biggest category in the tasting with more than 150 wines. And it wasn’t so much the wines that made the final list but the quality of the wines that missed out.”
Mainbreak 2009 Shiraz. Pumps just as hard as the famous Mainbreak at the mouth of the Margaret River. Stacks of punch ripe plummy shiraz fruit with a savoury earthiness. The palate is deliciously soft and supple but with a thread of fine tannin and a tweak of oak to add some structure and further interest.”
James Halliday’s 2011 Wine Companion has awarded Mainbreak Wines 4.5 stars.
5 Stars and Best of the Best Wines By Variety – Awarded to Mainbreak Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2009. “Not in the least flamboyant, and has an attractive precision to its bouquet and palate that earned it a gold medal at the Qantas WA Wine Show ‘09; the citrus and grass flavours drive a long palate and clean finish. 94 points.”
4.5 Stars – Awarded to Mainbreak Cabernet Merlot 2008. “Good colour; an effusive bouquet of black fruits, spice and herbs leads into a palate full of thrust and vigour to its mix of black and red fruits plus savoury nuances. Gold Medal Hobart International Wine Show ‘09. 92 points”
