Boushey Vineyard Grenache Blanc 2018

Newish vintage, 600 cases produced. 94/6 blend of Grenache Blanc and Roussanne from three vineyards: Boushey (81% GB), Weather Eye (13% GB), Olsen (6% R). Pale yellow white, excellent clarity. Floral, vanilla and mild aldehydic barnyard aromas. Guava, lactic flavors, tropical fruit finish (banana then coconut? But this ain’t no Piña colada). Lingering cherry and heavy (skin and seed) tannic aftertaste . This is either serious experimental winemaking, or ultra craft-focused ‘blanc de noir’, or is this just their iteration of a pale “orange” wine? Massive tannins for a “white” wine. Not a wine for the faint of heart. Dry, just enough acidity, fruity but still pondering this one... The trop fruit flavors backed off, with cherry and other red fruit and Grenache character flavors emerging after 30-60 minutes. Tannins also softened somewhat, with patience — 2 days ago

I was just texting with a friend who used to go to New Zealand for rugby. We briefly talked about the wine down there. Had to find a bottle to try. Vineyards owned by actor Sam Neill. Didn’t know that and not that it matters. This wine has almost the same color as raspberry Kool-Aid. Still so young but it has some nice cherry fruit. Excited to drink while reuniting with my couch watching CFB!! — a month ago

Two Creeks Vineyards Pinot Noir 2017

Just had to try another bottle!!Ruby with red fruit aromas and spicy herb floral notes, aged for 10 months in 40% new French oak. On the palate fresh black raspberry and cherry flavors with herb tea and earthy tones. Firm fine tannins, balanced acidity, nice mouthfeel, long finish ending with earthy mineral herb character. Nice! Paired well with a spicy seared sushi grade tuna with spicy peanut dressed sesame soy sauce. Wow!! — 10 days ago

This is great for $22. I may be a little conservative with a 92. 92.4 then. #Delectable, can you add another decimal place?
Big and jammy. Wish there was just a little more structure to it to get to the WS 93.

Paul, I have a soft spot for McClarn Vale . Years ago I was birdwatching there. We were staying at a local hotel and by the pool. A large family was having a BBQ. They invited us over. We had a great time and drank a lot of local wine . I could live there.hugh

Sounds like an awesome trip @Hugh O'Riordan!! Australia is definitely on my bucket list. I’m a big fan of Two Hands as well as a couple other Aussie producers I’d like to visit; Mollydooker, Penfolds... thanks for the note. Have a great weekend! I look forward to your reviews as always!
