Kelly's Reserve Tasmania Pinot Noir 2014

Aromatic notes of rose and violet. Great depth of delicious flavour on the medium bodied palate. Red fruits - savoury and rich. See previous note for the 2014 - always excellent but 8 years of cellaring has enhanced this wine. To have won the Jimmy Watson Trophy for the Best One Year Old Dry Red at Royal Melbourne and still starring now at 8 years of age shows this is a wine for all seasons and all years. Should be a regular purchase. A Winner. — a month ago

Dominus Estate

Dominus Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 1987

Home alone for 24 hrs! The perfect time to open something older. Fully mature Bordeaux... I mean Napa! Dried fruit and tobacco, there is still a frame of tannins but they are well integrated and slightly chalky in texture. Enjoyable but more mature than I prefer. — 2 years ago

I don’t think I’ve ever had a Pinot from the Sierra Foothills! Sounds nice!

Prophets Rock

Home Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015

Moe
9.1

From back label. Located on a high-elevation, steep glacial terrace in the Bendigo sub-region of Central Otago. This stunning site has clay and pedogenic lime soil, featuring schist and quartz.
A traditional aesthetic - respectful, patient, vineyard- focused- resonates in our approach, and frees the wine to express the unique tenor of our sites.

This wine was fermented using only indigenous ‘ wild’ yeast and matured for 17 months in French oak barrels. This wine was bottled unfiltered on 10th of November 2016. Careful cellaring will reward collectors over the next 10+ years. 1046 cases were made.

Ridge Vineyards

Mazzoni Home Ranch Zinfandel Blend 2018

Perfectly contained and within itself. Ridge makes a lot of wines that, despite the Zinfandel, seems like they were made in Europe in the 70s. Which I count as a good thing. This wine was closed at first, but air is coaxing out gorgeous scent of black cherry and black raspberry, with summer-sun-warmed gravel. Very elegant in style, with the 40-something percent of Carignane lifting and tightening up the Zin. Just about a perfect accompaniment for my Portuguese chicken, rice, and chourico. This wine will age well for several more years. — 6 months ago

Varner

Spring Ridge Vineyard Home Block Chardonnay 2013

Nice bright lemon color... but packing both real weight and acidity. Ripe juicy pear and red apple with a touch of richness, butter, toast...13.7 ABV... the wine has knit itself into a round, complex whole of its parts. A touch too new world for some, and too dry and old world for others. I admire the winemaking restraint and the complex fruit from the highly regarded vineyard. Nice dinner companion. — 2 years ago
