Gralyn Estate

Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

Leafy, tomato bush aromas - herbal- classic Cabernet descriptors from Margaret River. A sweetish blackberry note on the palate but essentially savoury with a tarry earthy note. With time in Decanter this wine improved even more - a really good medium weight Marg River Cab. Gralyn is in Wilyabrup and has illustrious neighbours like Vasse Felix, Cullen, Woodlands, Moss Wood and Pierro without their reputation as yet. They recently made this a “Museum Release “ charging $500 which is over the top. I’m glad I paid $80 at the cellar door about 10 years ago. Used to be served in Qantas Business Class back in the day when Qantas was flying internationally ✈️✈️🛫🛫 — 2 months ago

Wild Yeast Margaret River Chardonnay 2015

Pale to mid Lemon in colour. Barrel ferment characters, leesy funky, touches of butterscotch and stone fruit. Went through malolactic. Some would say “worked”. Needless to say a lot of good winemaking on show here. Palate is more citrussy than stone fruit with a balanced creaminess very persistent flavours. A lovely and well made Chardonnay by Nic Peterkin. His dad founded Pierro who make one of the best Chardonnays in Margaret River and therefore Australia. His mother, Shelley, is the daughter of Di and Kevin Cullen ie. Margaret River royalty. Only 200 cases made. — 6 months ago

@Bob McDonald Based on your previous note in 2017 it sounds like this has improved with age, that’s great.

Yes. I noticed that myself. It’s great when that happens. Sometimes it goes the other way and better off drinking younger.

Vintage Reserve Chardonnay 2013

On flight from Dubai to Singapore. Pierro vintage reserve Chardonnay , 2013. Nice green tints with the light lemon gold. Comes across quite restrained , oak is nicely balanced with ripe apple , citrus , maybe a touch of pineapple or passion fruit. In the mouth , ripe fruit again , apple and citrus, but also grapefruit, mineral also perhaps. Quite focused, well balanced though there is a creamy richness that makes me think that there must be a reasonable amount of alcohol, full bodied. Long finish , nicely balanced acidity but due to the richness of the wine it doesn't give real refreshment, this is serious Chardonnay however. A good , enjoyable wine though may not be able to finish more than a couple of glasses! — 3 years ago
