A very nice Pinot from Creation

Penley Estate

Phoenix Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon

Points for sheer complexity even if not my style. Loads of bell pepper, eucalyptus, bay leaf, pencil shavings, and blackberries. Needs time or rich food. It’s a lot of wine for $25. — 17 days ago

Whalehaven

Conservation Coast Chardonnay 2016

At first felt a little flabby and rustic. It grew on me- the pear, pineapple and mustard are so palatable. A big Chardonnay that disappeared quickly. — 2 months ago

Hamilton Russell Vineyards

Hemel-en-Aarde Valley Pinot Noir 2019

Delectable Wine
9.1

The 2019 Pinot Noir is Walker Bay in terms of Wine of Origin rather than Hemel-en-Aarde, since much of their Pinot Noir was rejected after wildfires tainted the fruit. The majority of fruit was sourced from benevolent growers in the valley, and completely destemmed but not crushed, then matured in 24% new French oak. This has an open, quite herbal bouquet of vibrant red and black fruit, underlying sous-bois notes coming through with aeration. The well-balanced palate offers fine-grained tannins and a fine bead of acidity. Open and expressive, with a pinch of black pepper on the cohesive finish. Given the trauma suffered this vintage, this should be considered a success, not least because it still seems to bear the imprimatur of Hamilton Russell. (Neal Martin, Vinous, April 2021)

Catherine Marshall

Fermented in Clay Chenin Blanc

Vita blommor, mandel och päron. Mjuk smak med viss oljighet, vanilj, lite mineralitet och otroligt fin balans. Lång behaglig eftersmak och överlag väldigt god — a month ago

Lismore

Cape South Coast Syrah 2016

As Syrah goes, it’s enjoyable and smooth. But it lacked real depth and flavor to make it a favorite — 10 days ago

Lismore Estate Vineyards

The Age of Grace Viognier 2018

Like the Chardonnay I found this lacking character and came as a disappointment after enjoying the Lismore reds - I’ll stick to them going forward. — a month ago

Bellwether

Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

No time for notes - too many good wines but this is destined to be a classic. Black currant, bay leaf and mint. Cellaring potential of 20 years + I will be buying some. — a month ago
