Fourre-Tout Yarra Valley Barbera Blend 2017

See previous note from November 2019. Fourre Tout is a French term meaning “Catch All”. A field blend of Barbera Malbec Pinot Noir Nebbiolo and Grenache from Yarra Valley fruit. Crimson with a pinkish crimson rim. Muted aromatics to begin with. Quite lush on the palate. Barbera can be more full bodied in the new world than in its Italian homeland. Medium bodied overall - a good balance of fruity and savoury. Soft resolved mild tannins - not for long keeping. — a month ago

Napoleone Vineyard Shiraz 2015

See previous notes. They still apply. A fragrant medium weight red wine where the small amount of Viognier plays its role with the red fruited aromatics. Amazing that a $30 wine would win the Trevor Mast Trophy for best Shiraz at the 2016 Royal Melbourne Wine Show. — a month ago

Main Ridge Estate

Mornington Peninsula Chardonnay 2015

Bright straw yellow in colour. The nose is rather muted for the fleshy ripe palate to follow. Quite rich with medium plus intensity for a Mornington Peninsula Chardonnay. Sweetish stone fruit flavours of peach and nectarine - some creaminess but essentially fruit driven. Oak is well integrated. Somewhat of a crowd pleaser - and very easy to drink. Main Ridge Estate was the first established winery on the Mornington Peninsula in 1975. — 12 days ago

Single Vineyard Pinot Noir 2019

Very good p/q. Reminds me of Giant Steps Applejack/Sexton. Clean red fruit, lavender, with a deeper spice note. There is Gibbston/Otago deep spice, then you get pure red strawberry. No discernible tannin, and acid is subdued, but at this pricepoint this is a buy. — 13 days ago

The Old Port Righ Vineyard Chardonnay

Really nice, lime leaf, fresh cut grass, and just teeny tiny whiff of vanilla — 12 days ago

Giant Steps

Primavera Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015

Very stalky and savoury on nose and palate. Steve may have overdone the whole bunch component in the ferment? A good wine as always from Giant Steps but would have preferred a bit more red fruit. First of 4 bottles. Will leave having the 2nd for a year. — 8 days ago

Cuve Béton Mornington Peninsula Pinot Noir 2018

Very fruity & fresh. Strawberry & Cherry. Interesting to know it was aged & fermented in concrete instead of oak. Very enjoyable. Will definitely try some of the other Pinot’s available from Garagiste — 5 days ago
