2016 Hazel's Vineyard Chardonnay
Stone fruit and lifted apricot blossom give way to a seductively flinty nose.Textural citrus acidity is intensified by the characteristic vineyard note of orange zest. The north facing gravel slopes, and southern locality of this vineyard ensure that this wine is both powerful in fruit concentration, and restrained by balanced acidity.
- James Halliday 95 Points - A different expression of funk that backs off somewhat having made its point, and moves into elegant mode. Nice wine.
- Huon Hook 95 Points - Light yellow hue, fresh and clean; the bouquet is cashew-nutty, creamy and lightly smoky, with some 'chicken coop' notes, becoming cleaner and more spicy with air. It's very fresh and vibrant with intense lemon juice flavour, yet invested with delicious complexing notes that make it much more than a simple fruit wine. Lovely.
2017 Amigos Red - Shiraz, Grenache, Mataro
Blood orange, black pepper and fresh raspberry aromas all leap from the glass. The palate is both savoury and primary. Dark, forest fruit dominates the start, before pepper and wild thyme persist on the finish. Like it’s white stable mate, a perfect food wine.
2015 Rocky Road Cabernet Merlot
Brooding aromas of blackberry conserve, cassis and after dinner mints greet at first swirl. Underlying sweet liquorice, black olives and dark chocolate are moderated by subtle earthy notes. Soft forest fruits fill a soft palate that abounds with cassis and sweet cola flavours. A silky mid palate is supported by velvety cocoa flavoured tannins and sweet spiced oak. A fruit forward number guaranteed to please.
