Really great. Tastes strongly of grapefruit with notes of peach. Would definitely get again. — a day ago
One of the most interesting wines I’ve ever tasted. It’s has an almost sherry quality to it, with lots of structure. Is this fermented in stone or amphora? Twigs, honey, stone fruit, and a huge aroma of lemon balm and dried fruit. This shits crazy good and could command 3x the price — a month ago
Another AA7 shocker. Dark red fruits still noted on top of complex earthy forest mushroom nose. Palate balanced and chewy in a good way. Good long finish. Surely will be a shocking brand killer in any blind Merlot tasting! — 2 months ago
Lots of tannins but still really easy to drink too fast — 20 days ago
Love this-one of my favorite sparkling rose wines of all time. Amazing find in north Georgia. Well balanced with a mix of ripe berries without being cloyingly sweet or without the sometimes dry after taste from other sparkling rose wines. — a month ago

This is a wine I’ve only had young. It has far more backbone when it’s young. After 8-9 years in bottle, it more like white burgundy with grassy notes of Sauvignon Blanc.
This is a wine I could write a novel of notes regarding.
The nose shows characteristics of; White Burgundy, Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier & Sancerre. Cut grass, herbaceous notes, tropicals, stone fruits, guava, passion fruit, lichee, subtle mint, waxy candle, honeycomb notes, cream, vanillin/vanilla, gentle white spice, limestone mineral & chalkiness spearmint, camomile, spring flowers, jasmine & fields of greens.
The mouthfeel is gorgeous, voluptuous & sexy, waxy, round with beautiful viscosity. Cut grass, herbaceous notes, mix of tropical melons , stone fruits-white peach dominate, guava, passion fruit, lichee, subtle mint, waxy candle, honeycomb, marmalade, cream, vanillin/vanilla, gentle white spice, limestone mineral & chalkiness, fine & delicate crushed, limestone & sandstone minerals, burgundy volcanics, understated spearmint, shades of garden fresh green beans, hints caramelized brown sugar, melted caramel, saline quality, river stone, camomile, spring flowers, jasmine & fields of greens. Acidity is like a warm summer rain. One of the best, long, rounded, lush, ruby, extremely well knitted structure & balance finishes I’ve had & persists for minutes.
My favorite Sauvignon Blanc to date. A great climate, soil structure, terroir for Sauvignon Blanc in the right Winemakers hands.
Gorgeous wine & a steal at $69. I believe $150 a bottle & a three bottle minimum off their list. The 2012 vintage released at $120.
What a pair with the garden fresh cherries tomatoes, basil, salt, pepper, half of squeezed lemon in olive oil. — a month ago
Inky black in colour. Dusty and savoury. Tastes European - made from the little known and ancient Saperavi grape which originated in the former Russian state of Georgia. Ballandean Estate at Stanthorpe , the Granite Belt, have been growing Saperavi successfully for some years now. Dusty cherry/plum flavours with much savouriness. Barb loved it. — 4 days ago
Earthy, full-flavored wine with hints of herbs and florals. Pleasant through the entire taste. — 2 months ago
