Pale lemon with tropical fruit aromas and citrus scents. On the palate apricot and peach flavors with honey lemon zest. Well balanced with pleasant acidity, finishing with mineral and wet stone nuances on the medium ending. Very nice! Should improve over the next few years. — 8 days ago
This is a nice surprise. A nice Pinot Noir from Burgundy.
Dry on the palate with cherries, red currants, raspberries, light oak, spices, chocolates, peppercorn, vegetables, herbs, graphite, earth, leather and light barnyard.
Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity.
Nice length on the finish with spices and raspberries and fine grained tannins.
Needs a couple of hours to open up properly, and show the tannins and structure.
Thank you Wendy for sharing this with us.

This 6 year old is still young, and would be better in 5 years.
Better with food than just by itself, right now. Tangy and a little hot at the back of the throat. Spicy with a nice mouthfeel.
13.5% alcohol by volume.

See previous notes dating back to May 2018 and also August 2019. Consistent notes with noticeable Kerosene aromas. Also white flowers. On the palate a soapy texture with delicious flavours of green melon. Diminished acid notes largely resolved. A wonderful mature Clare Valley Riesling holding up and will go on for a few more years. — 7 days ago
For the price, one of the best Nebbiolo I’ve had. Smooth, dry, balanced, great in its own or with food- like pizza. — 15 days ago

On the nose there are beautiful expressions of black cherry, blackberry, black plum, black currant, mint, licorice, sage and herbal notes.
On the palate there is black cherry, blackberry, black currant, green bell pepper, black pepper, tobacco, mint, toasted oak and vanilla.
