Gilberts Mount Barker


Normand Western Australia Pinot Noir 2018

A sappy red fruited slightly savoury perfume…stewed fruits. Reminds me of those Western Australia Pinot characteristics. I used to buy Moss Wood Pinot where the fruit came from Pemberton if I recall correctly. This WA Pinot from Mount Barker, we bought at the winery a few years ago reminds me of the old Moss Wood Pinots. I don’t think this is a cellaring proposition but it is tasting great at 6 years old. On the 2nd night a whiff of honeycomb from the oak. — 5 months ago

Mount Barker Block 9 Shiraz 2017

Delectable this is the Block 9 Shiraz, not offered in your Database. Typical peppery Mount Barker Shiraz. Dense Ruby with a crimson rim. A note of cigarette fine cut rolling tobacco and blue fruits. A medium bodied palate with spice and pepper. Savoury with medium minus fruit influence. Good length and M+ persistence. Visited the district and this winery about 4 years ago in 2019. I have always loved this style of Shiraz. Gold medal and Trophy Best WA Red at 2018 Perth Royal Wine Show. — a year ago

You know I’ll be around. Probably processing Tolpuddle fruit.
If you give me a clear time on the 31st I can book you a table in the tasting room. Thanks for the support Bob.

Regional Series Mount Barker Riesling 2022

Very clean, quite dry Aussie Riesling made with grapes from the Great Southern Region near Mt. Barker, served with very good takeout fish and chips, such a versatile wine, very good acid, medium-long finish. — 7 months ago

Mount Barker Summit Chardonnay 2019

A label new to me I bought at a Downs Club tasting. A little funk on the nose with almonds and under ripe stone fruit. Impressive if not a little light on the palate with the nose carrying through on to the palate. On the 2nd day this had filled out finishing with a saline minerality. Medium plus intensity and length. Proves once again that the Adelaide Hills is an exceptional area for Chardonnay - think Shaw and Smith M3 Chardonnay. — 2 years ago

Reserve Dry Grown Vineyard Mount Barker Chardonnay 2015

Possibly my new favourite affordable Chardonnay. Just the right amount of malo to add complexity with a distinct fruit character — 4 years ago
