(2017) Bottle fermented, nice floral and confectionery nose, sherbetty and lemony, bright and fun, with a dry finish, and deliciously thirst quenching.
(2017) From right down on south coast east of Hobart. Quite closed, a touch herbal, but a lovely juiciness and chalkiness to the acidity, with a sour lemon thrust. Please note price and stockist quoted at time of review are for the 2015 vintage.
(2017) A blend of 70% Grenache and 24% Mataro with 6% Shiraz, aged in large barrels. What beautiful ripe fruit, bursting with blueberry and super-ripe, deep mulberry, then fleshy and ripe, spicy, but so alive with slightly meaty, balsamic notes. In the mouth, it is savoury to the nth degree, with polished tannins and perfect balance. Impressive. Blooming good value from this garden for a wine of such quality.
(2016) What a terrific Chardonnay, the nose glittering with Chablis-like gunflint minerality, a lime precision and ripe apple beneath. The palate has surprising squirt of tropical, mango-like fruit ripeness, very juicy grapefruit too, then the mineral acidity starts to kick in, and a little creamy component, to give this texture and mouth-feel, the finish long and tapering in a most elegant way.
