The Beaux Frères Vineyard Pinot Noir 2014

Another one from last night. This was so good. A tiny little funk on the nose that blew off after a short decant. It really started to shine after some added time in the glass. Still youthful and amazing. More of a Burgundian style. Worth drinking now if you have 2014s. — 20 days ago

Monte Bello Chardonnay 2014

Hmm. Lots of oak, buttery, lots of vanilla, moderate volume and a sweetness on the finish. Sub acid.

Starting to get going a week in… definitely gaining volume and complexity.

@Ron R had to snatch this when I found it in a local shop for less than $100, but I actually much prefer the recent vintages of the estate chardonnay.

You’re a lucky many, @Josh Morgenthau. This is a wine that’s akin to rocking horse shit!

Lytton Springs Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel Blend 2019

I decanted knowing this was way too young. But found it balanced and drinking well. As usual, I suspect depth and character will develop with patience. 375ml. — 15 days ago

Frankland Estate

Isolation Ridge Vineyard Shiraz 2014

Perfectly judged and obviously well made. Very clean and precise expression. Pepper, spice, and dark bramble fruit with strong violet notes enveloped in a shroud of dusty tannin. Medium bodied but super long and grippy. Strong buy — 13 days ago

Still has a lot of life left. Herbs and acid balanced nicely with the standard fruit forward swan clone notes.

Mornington Peninsula Chardonnay 2015

Similar notes to 48 weeks ago with a little more fullness. Still pale lemon in colour. More stone fruit than citrus with white peach, nectarine. I was expecting a more cool climate style coming from the Mornington Peninsula. As previous note - some creaminess on the palate but very fruit driven. Oak is well integrated. The first producer on the Mornington Peninsula in 1975. — 13 days ago
