In a good place at the moment. Decanted and drank over a couple of days. By the second day had developed some dark black fruit flavour like plum and blueberry. But still wrapped in classic Aussie Shiraz ummph. — 6 months ago
A cheap quaffer but my goodness, it's packed with flavour. Buttery, butterscotch, melon and a touch of honey.
Very drinkable. — 6 months ago
2016 at One and Only. A fine drop contains a little more substance than some other Pinots I’ve had recently. Good drinking at a good price. — a month ago
Lychees and white pear flavour, very entertaining drink but my palate prefers a more Pinot driven red fruit finish.
Good but have had better. — 5 months ago
ID 214041 Brioche and citrus fruits on the nose, perhaps even a hint of prune? Very slight green tinged light golden colour. Light citrus flavor but with some of the Meunier fruit showing through. Very drinkable now but I suspect patience will be rewarded handsomely. — 6 months ago
