William Shiraz 2011

Dense Crimson in colour. The nose and palate on this full bodied red are more reminiscent of a South Australian Red than the medium bodied savoury style typical of the Hunter Valley. Just the faintest hint of HV sweat and earth. This showed rich ripe black currant with smooth tannins. It’s a pity there was a time when HV wines tried to mimic the SA styles which were more popular. This is an example of that. Quite a good wine but not true to its origins. Thankfully the main HV wineries have returned to their original style - think Mount Pleasant Maurice O’Shea, Brokenwood Graveyard and Tyrells Individual Paddocks. — 5 days ago

Les Preuses Chablis Grand Cru Chardonnay 2014

So typical of Chablis and of a Preuses from Fèvre. Flinty aromas, sea shells, spices and fresh lime. The palate follows suit with an acidity that is strong, a certain roundess to the palate to balance the acidity, minerality and salinity are very present, so Chablis Grand Cru like, great length and will be even better in a few years. 92-93+

Nez typé Chablis avec des coquillages, pierre à fusil, des épices et de la lime. Une bouche sur le même registre, acidité tranchante presque, salin et minéral, mais avec une certaine rondeur qui équilibre le tout, mais tellement Chablis, belle longueur et sera encore meilleur dans quelques années. 92-93+

9.3

The nose reveals; sour lemons, green apple skin, green apple Jolly Rancher, lime zest to candy, pineapple juice, underripe green melon, white peach, honeysuckle, some fresh, green herbs, white spices, cream, notes of melted butter, caramel notes, hints of vanillin, cream, some candle wax, steely flintiness, saline, sea fossils, powdery beautiful, chalkiness, limestone minerals, grey volcanics, fruit blossoms, spring flowers, jasmine & yellow florals.

The body is; a touch waxy, full, rich, round, lush & gorgeous. Great viscosity, tangy & sour lemons, green apple skin, green apple Jolly Rancher, lime zest to candy, pineapple juice, underripe green melon, white peach, honeysuckle, honeycombs, some fresh, green herbs, white spices, caramel notes, hints of vanillin, cream, steely, flintiness, white spices, mint, saline, sea fossils, powdery chalkiness, limestone minerals, grey volcanics, river stones, tree bark w/ just a touch of sap, fruit blossoms, spring flowers, jasmine & yellow florals. The acidity is like a rushing, fresh water Colorado river. The long; gorgeous, sexy, polished, elegant, finely balanced finish is excellent wire to wire and persists minutes.

Beautiful wine & vintage. It’s about 3-5 years away from 94 & has 10-15 years of good drinking ahead. Properly stored of course.

Quite good with Lamb Chopper harder white cheese & Rustic Bakery Rosemary & Olive Oil Organic Flatbread & the Jasper Hill Willoughby soft white cheese with the Firehook flatbread crackers.

William Hill Estate Winery

Bench Blend Napa Valley Red Blend 2014

A lot is going on in this wine. The nose is rich, the palate also. A blackcurrant, a leather, a chocolate. Sweet, deep hints of dark fruit. Too much acidity, medium finish. But 4,5 it's a fair note. — 13 days ago

This is a perfect Thursday wine. Just saw that my favorite winery in California burned down. :-(. This is toasty, robust. Good for fall. — 20 days ago
