9.0

American oak nose of coconut and dill. Baked and jammy boysenberry fruit, and almost some EA but not quite. Dusted ripened black cherry and blueberry. Sweetened fruit all the way through with old fig. Solid for 17yrs. — 9 days ago

Tasted here and had reasonably high expectations and was severely disappointed. Although, they sold out of a number of their better vintages. Tasted a lot of our not so favorite green bell pepper.

Truchard Vineyard Block Pinot Noir 2018

Nose is pear and peach. Aged in stainless steel but still smell oak. Maybe I’m mislabeling something. Palate is kiwi and melon. Dry. Very drinkable by itself or with a wide variety of food pairings. — 33 minutes ago

Neudorf

Rosie's Block Chardonnay 2017

Continuing my love affair with New Zealand Chardonnays even if only a glass with 6 Pacific Oysters fresh from Port Douglas at lunch today. Pale Lemon in colour Leesy Lemon Citrus aromas with traces of vanilla oak. More fulsome on the palate than the nose would indicate. Very Good. At Gerard’s Bistro Brisbane. — 23 days ago

Main courses: steak (LDG) and rabbit rabbit rabbit (RLA). Desserts: strawberry sponge cake (LDG) and chocolate molten cake (RLA). All very delicious. — 17 days ago

WOTN. In a zone! Layer upon layer of decadent fruit and mocha flavors. Jammy in the very best of ways. Sadly, my last bottle. — 11 days ago

Martinborough Vineyard

Home Block Martinborough Chardonnay 2014

A mixture of Citrus aromas and even tropical fruits - a hint of mango on the palate. Oak totally in balance. Some creamy notes but with enough acidity to keep things fresh. New Zealand Chardonnays are fabulous and worth seeking out. Decanter Magazine (UK) said the 2012 vintage of this wine was voted the best Chardonnay in the world outside Burgundy in 2015. — 24 days ago

Chehalem

Ridgecrest Vineyards Wind Ridge Block Riesling 2014

Pale golden, excellent clarity. Diesel, chrysanthemum and wood notes in nose. Lemon and creamy flavors, slightly oily mouthfeel initially. Lemon lime tartness (zingy? Yes!) with leesy and mineral finish. Nice wine; these flavors pop. Some skin astringency and varietal bitterness in aftertaste. Fairly dry, plenty of acidity for food. A bold Riesling, much to like here. — 12 days ago
