Estate Bottled Chalk Hill Sauvignon Blanc 2019

Blend of 96% Sauv Blanc with 4% Sauv Gris adding an interesting dynamic to the wine & distinctive aromas (prior to ‘18 vintage some Semillon added). Pale lemon color, citrus, tropical & floral aromas. On the palate peach, melon, herb & earthy tones, well balanced with acidity, smooth yet robust on a long finish ending rich with wet stone character. Good value! A Fav!! Very consistent! — 13 days ago

Reserve Baco Noir 2018

Baco Noir? I’d never heard of it, but fun to try what turns out to be a specialty of our northeastern wines. Tons of fruit, med bodied, soft and easy structure — 7 days ago

Henschke

Hill of Grace Vineyard Shiraz 1996

Only pale to mid crimson in colour with a tawny edge at 26 years of age. Black and blue fruits with game and a coffee bean note. The medium bodied yet rich palate is savoury and earthy with blackberry and just so so silky with resolved tannins and low acid. Not sure that I agree totally with Bob Campbell MW’s description - “like getting into an old Jag on a hot day”, but I love the imagery and can see where he’s coming from. Jancis said “pure hedonism “ and gave it 19/20. The latest iteration of H of G (2017) is selling for around $950 a bottle in Brisbane. No doubt brilliant but too expensive for me. I remember paying $12.50 for the 1982 vintage on release. There is a certain H of G character that is recognisable over many vintages over the years. Must be one of the most unique Shiraz vineyards in the world with vines up to a 150 years old. A privilege to drink this wine and close to perfection with 98 points. — 7 days ago

Parmelee-Hill Syrah 2017

A little…waxy? Coats the tongue without being tannic. Bit of green persimmon and buttery fruit. It’s an interesting wine. — 2 days ago

Tried this one from the past that we liked but this older vintage didn’t hold up as well. Got a bit sweet in the finish. Not as balanced. — 15 days ago
