Anthill Farms

Peters Vineyard Pinot Noir 2019

Subtle earth tones with a wonderful balance of fruit, brininess, and umami. Not a fruit bomb, but instead tastes Burgundian. Great job by Anthill! — 5 days ago

La Pira Barolo Nebbiolo 2007

WNH Barolo theme.

Not having any experience with this producer, I tried a small glass at pop and pour, then decided to decant for an hour and a half. I then enjoyed the bottle over the next two hours.

I’m between a 92 and 93 here. If I had tried this blind, I think I would have taken this to left bank Bordeaux. As odd as that sounds, my reasons are mostly due to hardly any floral notes at all, and a hint of leather on the palate (with both the classic Barolo and Cabernet finish showing drying tannins). The longer this was open, the more cherry menthol notes picked up (but not in a bad way). Red currant, cherry and vanilla Pope tobacco, and underripe fleshy black cherry skin. Sporting a classically warm 2007 profile with richness and tannin, this powered through the entire evening and was best about halfway through. I’m sure it can hold many more years, but this is at a stage where the fruit is fading to the background and savory herbs, dates and fig will soon make their way to the forefront. Just depends on your preferred Barolo style. Enjoyed from a Grassl Cru glass which does a great job of accentuating the aromatics in old world wines.

Napa Valley Albariño 2019

Lively lime pith aroma blowing from the glass...medium weight but really acid-driven mouthfeel. Long, round finish with no sharp edges..,great food wine with French-Vietnamese takeout...California does such a great job on high-acid unoaked varietals and they are garnering an increasingly higher portion of my purchasing budget. Nice wine and great QPR. — 16 days ago

Serrat Pinot Noir 2016

From the Mornington Peninsula (although the fruit for this Pinot Noir came from the Yarra Valley ) - this is Tom Carson’s personal project when he’s not making wine for Yabby Lake - his main job. This had strawberry and other red fruits like cherry and a small whole bunch influence. Oak is dialled right back. A medium weight palate that is yet to show its full potential. First of 3 purchased and somewhat closed. Will leave having the 2nd for a couple of years. — 2 days ago

After spring cleaning all day yesterday i wanted a wine i knew would be totally delicious. A job for cru Beaujolais! This one exceeded expectations. I think it’s drinking perfectly right now. Lots of raspberries backed by lavender and autumn leaves and spice. — 20 days ago
