Nova Vita

Chardonnay 2015

This is the last of a dozen bought back in 2019 as a mid week quaffer for $12 a bottle from Dan Murphy’s. Smells and tastes much better than that - could be treble the price. Some leesy funk with grapefruit on the nose. On the palate Citrus, a hint of nectarine and perfectly balanced oak. Excellent QPR from the renowned Chardonnay area - the Adelaide Hills. Will need to purchase another dozen. — 5 days ago

Grosset

Polish Hill Clare Valley Riesling 2017

Light silvery, greeny colour. Good intensity with preserved lemon and kaffir lime profile. Plenty of acidity to aid a long future evolution over which it should gain in density and nuance. — 9 days ago

Penfolds

Max's Adelaide Hills Chardonnay 2015

Named after Grange creator, Max Schubert. Adelaide Hills developing as a premium region for Chardonnay. A modern nose of funky solids and nougat. Not a blockbuster on the palate but quite restrained and elegant with grapefruit and mineral notes. Someone like Penfolds cannot afford to make an average wine and this is anything but average. Great QPR for only $35. — 9 days ago

Atlas Wines

429º Clare Valley Shiraz 2016

Didn’t take notes as I thought I already had a Delectable note on this Atlas but I noticed previous note was 2013 and this wine was 2016. Not dissimilar to the previous with Black currant and a little Clare Valley menthol/eucalyptus. A full bodied palate with black fruits and chocolate - softening tannins and medium minus acid. An excellent red for the money. — 9 days ago

Koerner

Watervale 16 Riesling Gullyview Vineyard 2019

Apricot and citrus on the nose. Slightly sweet but well balanced with acidity. Reminded me of a not quite ripe apricot, just with lots more complexity! Lovely. — 3 days ago

Commune of Buttons

Field of Sparrows Adelaide Hills Red Blend

Been holding on to this bottle for a little while now. Had two of the same vintage before. Needed time to open up but was still juicy, grassy, with an easy finish. The end has definitely changed a bit with time. Sad to see it go. — 12 days ago
