De Bortoli

Reserve Release Yarra Valley Chardonnay

Absolutely excellent chardonnay; totally opposite to the fruity brigade that dominates reviewers' minds; this is restraint, mealy, wheaten nose; great maturity though lime green at 7 yrs; 12% alc, hand sorted, mature vines meaning 35+ I guess; taut and true to light- medium category of this variety; has dignity not brashness; long ager too; paired with seafood bouillabaisse; #drinkoz #victorianwine #yarravalley #dixonscreek #debortoli #chardonnay #reserverelease #2008 #12% #maturewine #maturingchardonnay #maturevines — 4 years ago

Yarra Valley Syrah 2013

9.0

Second bracket of Cool Climate Shiraz! 2013 Luke Lambert Syrah intriguing texture and complex flavour profile, best value wine of the Day at $33. Well worth experimenting with a couple over time. Not the cheapest or most expensive just best bang for buck. Warramate also good value for $20 restrained, fun, nothing cerebral, great daily drinking $20. Craiglee a solid wine that felt a bit lost in the line up. Lacking the extra dimension. #Wine #FilthyGoodVino #Shiraz #CoolClimate #VictorianWine — 5 years ago
