Intrinsic Pinot Noir 2017

Savoury palate of sour, tart, spicy cherry. Firm but fine tannin. Very autumnal and suits the season. — 2 days ago

Moonambel Shiraz 2013

This is in a great place right now but will continue to develop for 10 + years. The integration of blue and black fruit with a wall of fine powdery tannin defines this wine. Rosemary, and floral notes mixed with the pure elegant fruit. Long, and serious. — 13 days ago

Fresh and nutty taste very smooth with a lingering palette. Highly recommend — 2 months ago

Bindi

Quartz Macedon Ranges Chardonnay 2011

Pale Lemon in colour. Barrel ferment characters. Oak is there on the medium minus intensity palate but perfectly integrated. From the poor 2011 vintage everywhere in Australia except the Hunter Valley and Western Australia. The wine is restrained, fine and delicate - good citrus notes on the light to medium weight palate with medium citric acid. A perfect example of why I think Chardonnay is better with oak treatment rather than unoaked. It is required and completes the picture as long as it doesn’t dominate. This is a great effort considering the vintage. — 18 days ago

Drumborg Vineyard Pinot Noir 2018

Very spicy savoury character. Smells like a Gibbston Valley monster. Doesn’t quite have the purity and weight of otago’s best, but still attractive sweet savoury spice with umami, and cedar on entry. Good bite of acid in mid palate gives some length and interest. — a month ago
