Oeil de Perdrix Blanc de Noirs Brut Champagne

David T
9.1

Introduction Champange from our friend Christina.

Lighter & leaner style of Rosé from what we normally drink. Soft mousse & micro oxidation. Strawberries light orange citrus, cherries, blackberry reduction, watermelon right on the rind, edgy, grainy chalkiness, grey volcanics. spot of saline/sea spray, baguette crust, pink rose pedals & flowers. The acidity is soft & splendid. Excellent finish that is well balanced, has nice tension, smartly polished & persists nicely for minutes.

William Shiraz 2011

Dense Crimson in colour. The nose and palate on this full bodied red are more reminiscent of a South Australian Red than the medium bodied savoury style typical of the Hunter Valley. Just the faintest hint of HV sweat and earth. This showed rich ripe black currant with smooth tannins. It’s a pity there was a time when HV wines tried to mimic the SA styles which were more popular. This is an example of that. Quite a good wine but not true to its origins. Thankfully the main HV wineries have returned to their original style - think Mount Pleasant Maurice O’Shea, Brokenwood Graveyard and Tyrells Individual Paddocks. — a month ago
