The Estate Pinot Noir 2016

My first 2016 BP Estate. Powerful red fruits with a whole bunch stalky element. A typical BP Estate with that stewed fruit rhubarb type character Similar to many other BP Estate Pinots I’ve had on Delectable from other vintages. — 6 days ago

Pinot Noir 2012

Surprised it’s been over four years since I last tasted this vintage. And hasn’t it developed! Much more towards savoury and charcuterie flavours now, although some dark cherry remains. Slightly drying finish, faintly reminiscent of cocoa. It’s certainly much softer and mature than I recall, moving into its autumnal phase. Drink soon, I’d say. — 21 days ago

Mount Mary

Yarra Valley Pinot Noir 2015

Mid to deep crimson with a touch of purple. A lovely red fruited perfume which will improve In years to come. Still a little contained on the palate with wonderful potential. Mt Mary is an aristocrat of the Yarra Valley covering several wine styles - all of them brilliant. Covering Cabernets (probably the flagship), Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. This will drink well through to the latter part of this decade. Postscript: Received 99 points from James Halliday who is a long time Burgundy nut and has drunk more than his fair share of Grand Cru Burgundy — 3 months ago

Sangreal Pinot Noir 2018

Delectable Wine
9.5

Limpid ruby-red. Finely detailed red currant, raspberry, Asian spice and floral aromas pick up a hint of blood orange with air. Juicy and lithe on the palate, offering alluringly sweet red fruit preserve, candied rose, star anise and vanilla flavors that betray no excess fat. In a distinctly elegant style, with fine-grained tannins adding discreet grip to the impressively long, red-fruit- and spice-driven finish. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, September 2022)

Yarra Valley Pinot Noir 2020

At the start splashes on the scene with green apple, raspberries, currants and pepper. The spiciness builds further as it opens up while the acidity gets milder. The finish is long and very spicy. Easy to drink. — 20 days ago

Macedon Ranges Chardonnay 2019

Not shy, this one. An upfront riot of aromas and flavour, with citrus, mandarin, nougat and oak influence with good weight and a luscious texture. — 2 months ago

Applejack Vineyard Pinot Noir 2016

Delectable Wine
9.4

Deep, glistening ruby-red. Ripe, mineral-accented red and blue fruits, incense, musky earth and candied flowers on the seductively perfumed nose. Sappy and alluringly sweet on the palate, offering juicy cherry, black raspberry, savory herb and vanilla flavors along with an exotic Asian spice nuance. Fine-grained and seamless in texture, delivering round, slowly building tannins and an impressively long finish that leaves kirsch and floral notes behind. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, September 2022)
