As per previous notes. This is really stalky even though its 60% whole bunch. Just medium weight but ultra savoury and resinous - hard to pick a fruit descriptor. Barb and I liked this wine very much but lovers of big Barossa Reds would differ I think. To be honest in a blind tasting it would be difficult to pick this as an Aussie Shiraz. — 7 days ago
First decent sunshine in the garden
Weekend is on early this week
Got delivered a 6 pack split between 2017 and 2016 yesterday
This '17 is delicious!!
It reminds me a lot of a sangiovese from Radda or Castelnuovo Berardenga or even a northern brunello. Vibrant, mineral, but supported by strong shoulders that you can't notice much at this stage. Neat and precise are the violet,tobacco and licorice.
Spices, leather and cola. The fruit is between a blood orange and a raspberry. I dare to say it recalls a Soldera's Brunello. Long, young and enjoyable from now and many years ahead. — 21 days ago
#winery just bought by #jacksonfamily wines and I completely understand why. Amazing. #yarravalley #chardonnay pale lemon color, the wine has pronounced aromas of citrus (lemon, nectarine and grapefruit) and stone fruit (apricot) with secondary aromas of toast, flint and butter. On the palate the wine is dry with medium (+) acidity, medium/high 13,5% alcohol, medium(+) body and pronounced flavours. With a certain hint of lemon yoghurt and cream. Medium (+) Creamy finish. Outstanding #australia — 11 days ago
Very nice proper Yarra pinot. Everything in its place. Red fruit dominates but there is some savoury funk and tannin to give interest and structure. Buy again — 3 days ago
Dark red fruits but not plumps, creamy and rich on the palate, good acid, wood still in play, but great balance, a sleeper. — 4 days ago
