Vat 47 Hunter River Pinot Chardonnay 2015

What a stunning wine- bright medium lemon, crisp acidity and a glorious nose of apple, lemon, flint, smoke and just a hint of herbs. Beautiful balance and a long finish - this is a marvelously elegant triumph of wine making. Fabulous with food or on its own. Dazzling — 19 days ago

HVD Single Vineyard Hunter Chardonnay 2011

Pale lemon, medium intensity aromas of floral, green fruits and petrol notes. On the palate flavors of lemon zest, orange peel, green apple & honeysuckle, vivid acidity, medium body on a medium length finish. Very good, had potential for aging. Tasting Sample. — a month ago

Not normally a fan of Hunter reds but this was exceptional. Lots of berries and oak but well balanced. Would drink again. — 14 days ago

Director's Reserve Sauvignon Blanc-Semillon Blend 2014

Beautiful wine with a complex bouquet. Clearly a big step up from a “plain” Sauvignon Blanc. Rich yet crisp. Well done. — 5 days ago

Single Vineyard HVD Hunter Sémillon 2011

It is rare that I have the opportunity to drink an Australian semillon and I have no one to blame but myself. I was first exposed to these gems at the Barossa Valley restaurant, Appellation.
A dominant nose of marzipan soars from the glass. Intense flavors of green apple,apricots and lime reverberate in the mouth. The only complaint I had was the short to medium finish.

@Ira Schwartz @Peter van den Besselaar 2011 was a good year for Hunter Valley Semillon Ira but 2014 possibly even better and 2017. You and Peter keep an eye out for Tyrrells Vat 1, Mount Pleasant Lovedale and Brokenwood ILR. All these will live 15 to 20 years.

Lake's Folly

Cabernet Sauvignon 1990

Very nice sip
A good amount of oak influence that tends to disappear with decanting
Long after taste
Good raspberry freshness
Leathery, cinnamon, earthy
Altogether still in good shape
No sediments at all
Not rush to open it
