Max's Adelaide Hills Chardonnay 2017

First, the silver packaging wrap they put it in is just awful as opening is not an easy task. Pale lemon color with aromas of tropical and stone fruit with wafts of citrus. On the palate flavors of peaches and ripe apple with melon and lemon juice, lively acidity with slight notes of vanilla oak. Medium+ finish ending with citrus fruit and oaky mineral character. Nice, even better if they just dropped the silver packaging. — 7 days ago

Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir 2017

No complexity, no complaints.
Simple and single dimension.
Fruity and delicious.
Maybe that equals two dimensions? 🤷🏼‍♂️

Barbera d'Alba Superiore 2018

9.0

Super floral and very pretty nose. Lilacs and violets. Some berry fruit. Very refined and aromatic. Palate is concentrated, sappy and pure. Deep berry fruit. High acidity but never jarring. Balanced, pure and deep. Confectionary sweetness on the finish. — 14 days ago

Petaluma

Tiers Chardonnay 2002

Ron R
9.5

Petaluma Tiers - In my mind, a first-growth chard from down under.
I spat my pacifier out when the cork disintegrated, but I need not have been concerned.
The visual presentation is stunning - look at that golden color in the glass. The nose displays roasted almonds, nutmeg, toasted bread and white fruits.
Palate is regal, revealing poise, layers and complexity. The mouthfeel is dense, while notes of nuts, exotic fruits and oak are layered. The acidity provides a frame for the overall structure. The almost undetectable oxidation is to be expected, but that just adds to what is a stunning example.
@Bob McDonald, any backstories to share?
Pairing this with filet and porcini mushrooms (which I have never cooked) 😱

Langhe Nebbiolo 2019

Lyle Fass
9.1

Tremendous color. Looks like Chateau Simone rose. Watermelon, strawberry, spice, a lipstick like intensity, spice, earth, florals and mineral. Deep cherry. Cherry lozenge. Floral. Citrus and Tree bark after some air. A gorgeous nose. Palate is ripe, juicy, full of tannins and structure. Terrific acids, man is this zingy and fresh and even has some citric zest to it. Tannins build up on the finish. Very serious Langhe Nebbiolo. — 6 hours ago

Langhe Nascetta 2019

Lyle Fass
9.3

Nascetta is lovely niche grape of the Langhe. I adore it. Nose is lavender, very floral, like a Crabtree and Evelyn store. Some apple, pear and fantastic spice. Super aromatic. Sweet Meyer lemon and sweet citrus as well. Palate is terrific fruit, lemon, lime, grapefruit, intense rocky mineralIty that reminds me of Germany and terrific depth. Great structure and very dry. Great mouthfeel and superbly mineral. Like really really mineral. Some citrus pith. But while being mineral it has a great mouthfeel. Super juicy and racy. Love this. — 10 days ago
