(2024) Mostly Shiraz, possibly with around 5% white varieties. Just a beautiful, coffee infused, sumptuous and soft nose, with that undertow of dried blood and game, but so mellow and sweet on the palate. Caressing, resolved, unruffled stuff the finish long and seamless.
(2024) Fabulous fragrance here, the violet and rose lift, but the cool climate meatiness and sizzle of bacon fat. The palate is dry and may have lost a little of its fruit concentration, but that's immaterial, as it has a succulent, subtle red fruit and terrific balance.
(2023) A full-bodied and very classy, complex Pinot Noir made by David Ritchie, with the label bearing his Christian name. From very old vines, planted in 1976. A wide diurnal range with cool nights allowed acidity to be retained with ample freshness. Delatite is imported by GB Wine Shippers but no retail stockists for this wine at time of review. (GD)
(2023) An enchanting assemblage of eleven separate lots on the estate, incorporating five different clones - MV6, 114, 115, 667 and Pommard. Fragrant spice and earthy herb notes with a red fruit lift to counterbalance black cherry core. Depth and structure (36% new oak, 12% whole bunch) with lovely balance and intensity. (GD)
(2023) Named after Michael Dhillon’s father, Darshan, who hailed from India, this is cool climate Pinot at its most elegant. Light in colour, yet structure from 20% new oak. Sumptuous red cherry and raspberry fruit with fine, suave tannins. Very persistent finish. No UK stockist at time of review. (GD)
(2023) The five-acre Centre Block was planted in 1969 and yields little more than two tons an acre. Deeply coloured, with supple fine-grained tannins, this Shiraz, which saw 20% new oak, has stunning and intense black cherry fruit with notes of spice and chocolate. (GD)
(2023) Exquisite purity of fruit from this super-elegant wine made from ultra low-yielding vines planted in the 1860s. Not produced every year, but this vintage is a stunner with crunchy red fruits, earthy herbs and vibrant acidity. 30% whole bunch and 10% new oak help provide supportive tannins. Glorious wine that will age gracefully over the next 10-15 years. No UK stockists listed at time of review. (GD)
(2023) Brown Brothers’ cellar door in Milawa receives the greatest number of visitors in Australia. The welcome there is as slick as this classy Cabernet, which has glorious cassis and plum fruit and very fine-grained soft tannins (30% new oak). Complex with impressive concentration and length. Brown Bros. is imported by Enotria, but no retail stockist for this wine listed at time of review. (GD)
(2023) Power and structure from 18-24 months in puncheons, a third new. Three years in bottle before release for this majestic Aussie Nebbiolo, with its perfumed nose of rose petals and violets. Earthy smokiness along with beguiling red fruits, firm tannins and striking freshness. Long finish with a long life ahead of it. No UK retail stockists listed at time of review. (GD)
(2023) Superb example of cool-climate medium-bodied Shiraz from what was a great vintage according to owner/CEO Matt Fowles. Fruit came from both the best sites and best barrels, with only 200 cases being made. Super soft tannins and glorious mix of black fruit, spice and chocolate. The wine easily absorbs 75% new French oak. Fowles Wines are imported by Enotria & Coe, but no retail listing for this wine at time of review. (GD)
