Pooley

Pinot Noir 2018

Lovely and perfumed with hints of cedar. Immediately attractive. Beautiful balance and acid, leaning towards red fruit with some bramble characters. It’s gorgeous drinking now and I’d expect a lot more to come given some time. First tasting of a Pooley but won’t be the last. Paired magically with duck breast in cherry sauce. — 7 days ago

Still pretty tightly packed straight out of the bottle.
Evolution in the glass holds reward if you can make it last long enough 🤤

Domaine A

Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

A deep Ruby red. A whiff of H2S and asparagus along with tomato bush on the nose. Some cassis characters on the medium plus bodied palate along with red capsicum. When I first opened this I thought it was a 2006. The graphics on the label are such that it is difficult to pick the difference as the type face is small. I have previous notes on the 2006 which I thought was a bit better and more fruit driven than this 2008. In cool climate Tasmania there will be some seasons where full ripeness of Cabernet Sauvignon will be a challenge. It remains the best Cabernet in Tasmania IMO. 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Cabernet Franc, 4% Merlot, 2% Petit Verdot. — 20 days ago

Home Hill

Kelly's Reserve Tasmania Pinot Noir 2014

Home Hill has become a rising star on the Australian Wine Show scene for the quality of their cool climate Pinot Noir. This wine had aromas of cherry and a little stemmy character. The palate was sweet with plums and black cherry. Very fluid and supple tannins - seamless. Medium weight palate and drinking well now. HH has a drinking window of 2017 to 2029. Cannot see it myself. My remaining 2 bottles will be gone in the next few years - just too delicious. Winner of the 2015 Jimmy Watson Trophy for the Best One Year old Dry Red at the Royal Melbourne Wine Show. From the most southerly vineyard in Australia. — a month ago
