Clonakilla

Canberra District Riesling 2015

Pale lemon yellow in colour. Notes of yellow and white florals, Quince, not a hint of petrol/kerosene (TDN). Still plenty of citric acid on the palate. At least 5 years left in the drinking window. — 15 days ago

Mount Edward

Central Otago Pinot Noir 2021

For $49, this is great p/q. Less heavy than Neuendorf, and a touch more complex and balanced than Rockburn for the same money. There is the dark fruited spice of central otago but with a more burgundian acid and tannin profile. Savoury and long. — 14 days ago

Lake's Folly

Hunter Valley Chardonnay 2014

A rich Chardonnay from an excellent vintage in the Hunter Valley. Luscious stone fruit notes on the palate, showing its warm climate origins. Low acid. Mealy. Stylistically not dissimilar to the Shafer Carneros Chardonnay had recently. — a month ago

@Andrew Cullimore Thanks Andrew. You went to the cellar door in the Hunter Valley if I recall correctly?

Unfortunately I didn’t go to Lakes Folly as there was a big sign on the drive way saying ‘latest releases sold out ‘ , I had the 2022 in a restaurant in the region … it was round and generous, enjoyable .

Tyrrell's Wines

Ravensworth

Canberra District Shiraz Viognier 2015

See previous notes for this Cuvée - a Shiraz Viognier from the ACT made by Bryan Martin who is the winemaker at the nearby and famous Clonakilla, for Tim Kirk. Pepper and Spice with Charcuterie - in fact like a junior version of Clonakilla. Interestingly the large label has pencil images of charcuterie in a butcher’s shop. Also excellent QPR. My last bottle. — a month ago

Amisfield

Central Otago Sauvignon Blanc

Clear and clean. Smells of pears and fresh crisp stone fruits but tasted of white melon, honeysuckle, and candied lemon. — 10 days ago
