Ritche vineyard chardonnay.
Pop and pour. A light golden color. On the nose: subtle notes of lemon, apricot, nutty vanilla. Taste: orange peel, lemon, honey, vanilla toast with a medium finish and medium plus acidity keeping it crisp and fresh.
Enjoying with the fresh Langoustines, red shrimp, and raw crudo!

Big fan of Tom’s wines. The Kerry’s Vineyard is a little more feminine, soft and round and subtle with red fruit and medium acid that makes it easy to drink. — a month ago
Mid Ruby in colour. Aromas of Cassis, Bay Leaf, Capsicum and Herbs - very much in the Margaret River mould. Medium weight on the palate but with M plus intensity - tannins largely resolved. An excellent Cabernet from a good vintage- not quite the complexity of their flagship, the Heytesbury back in those days. Vasse Felix was the pioneer in Margaret River with Dr. Tom Cullity planting vines in 1973. The flagship for VF is now named after him. — 20 days ago
2003 vintage, a bit muddy right out of the bottle but distinct cherry and dark fruit on the nose and palate. A leading vineyard in Monterey at the cool north end of the Santa Lucia Highlands. <300 cases - 10 barrels in French and US oak. Robb Talbot grower, Tom Stutz winemaker. — 8 days ago
Very very nice. Would interesting to see how it would age further. — a month ago
Mid Lemon in colour. Funky leesy notes with mineral and a touch of butterscotch. Previous sulphidic notes have diminished somewhat. A lot of winemaking on show here - this wine has been “worked “, but all to the good. The palate shows Lemon butter with under ripe stone fruit. Some creaminess from the oak and the winemaking. Medium plus intensity. Holding up easily - impressive at 10 years of age. Burgundian traits. Another very good wine from Tom Carson who is also in demand at Wine Shows for his excellent palate. — a month ago
Very nice. Full of fruit. Got it at a great price — 2 months ago
