Just because it's 25 degrees outside doesn't mean that I cannot enjoy a good glass of port 🔥
Already starting to develop some amber colors and complexity but still has a well defined core of primary fruit. Killer nose of wet cardboard and autumn leaves. I'm now going to sink deep into this bottle 🍷😂 happy weekend everybody — 13 days ago
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. — 15 days ago
Softer and sweeter than the Madeira but so delicious for what it is. Not something I would drink regularly. — 7 days ago
Smoky, savoury, and spicy nose, some oak and a leesy sulphidic note. On the palate mainly citrus but a little riper verging on to stone fruit. One of David Bicknell’s lesser Cuvées which I thought would be lean but not so. Coming together at 6 years of age. Drinking really well from one of Australia’s best Chardonnay exponents. — 6 days ago
Very fresh & enticing with fresh figs & mandarine peel in the forefront with some nutty toffee & melon caramel in the back and a pinch of black pepper.
On the palate this is nicely balanced with sweet raising fruit and a nutty, spicy finish. There’s a touch of tannins and good length.
The nose does promise more than the palate delivers and I’d love to have more depth & precision here, yet this remains a delicious after-dinner treat! — 10 days ago
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. — 19 days ago
