Yarra Valley Pinot Noir 2017

Pale Ruby in colour. Strawberry and Raspberry aromatics. The palate is very red fruit driven with strawberry and raspberry - quite delicious. I may be wrong but little evidence of whole bunch in the ferment. Oak is hardly detectable. Great value at $35AUD and should be an annual buy on top of the Individual Paddock Pinot Noirs which I buy regularly. Having a 2015 Applejack Pinot tonight. — 2 days ago

Empire of Dirt

Yarra Valley Syrah 2017

Viscous, deep purple on the swirl; thick nose of dried mulberries, figs, and black cherries along with green herbs, black pepper, and mint and eucalyptus flavors; medium to high acids and tannins, dark fruits, cracked pepper and green paprika dominate on the palate, and a savoury touch lingers on the long spicy finish. Kind of an atypical and interesting shiraz from the folks at Dirt! — 20 days ago

Sexton Vineyard Chardonnay 2016

Pale lemon in colour. Leesy nutty aromas. The palate is fuller than you normally get in the Yarra Valley with more stone fruit flavours and a smooth silky finish. A very moreish Chardonnay where the bottle disappeared quickly. — 15 days ago

Dry Red N°1 Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2008

Nothing to add to my extensive notes from January 2021. To reiterate this was the last vintage for the founder, Dr Bailey Carrodus before his passing. Just an excellent aged Yarra Valley Cabernet. — 22 days ago
