Cape Mentelle

Wilyabrup Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 2012

Margaret River; blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot and cabernet franc; so rounded, so peachy almost possible to detect varietal traits, so the blending is impeccable; streamline of juicy, minty, contained but delectable fruit flavours, wood plays little influence as does tannin; makes it more gulpable for masses; no tannin backbone, just juicy softness; #newwave #drinkaussie #drinkwa #westernaustralia #margaretriver #capementelle #wilyabrup #cmf #AUD50 #13.5% ; Wilyabrup is a sub-region of Margaret River known for top cabernet; interesting way to name a wine. — 4 years ago

Berton Vineyards

Reserve Pinot Noir 2013

Tassie pinot made by an accomplished Riverina maker at Yenda; opulent, brisk acidity, floral but fruit firm; great drink now while so vibrant #tasmania #derwent #pinotnoir #bertonreserve #2013 #drinkaussie — 4 years ago

Moss Wood

Ribbon Vale Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2011

This is very sophisticated for an Aussie Bordeaux blend; from a great Margaret River vintage but horrible in many other Australian regions; no jam, no lolly, no oak intrusion; just complex earth, forest, mushroom, tobacco and terroir amalgam; palate taut and tasting of the aromas; medium body captures a fine wine; cannot but expect the positive effect of the merlot; #drinkaussie #wa #margaretriver #ribbonvale #mosswood #cabernetmerlot #2011 #bordeauxblend — 4 years ago
