  1. Spring Vale Melrose Pinot Noir 2017

    "Winery Notes:Vibrant strawberry jam and raspberry jelly nose on an earthy background. Splash of Pinot Meunier adds some interest as a subtle indigenous yeast character. A juicy, soft, silky palate seals the deal in this early drinking, well priced Pinot. Match with crispy skinned ocean trout or slow roasted lamb shoulder.  Winemaking Notes This wine is made primarily from fruit sourced from our “Melrose” vineyard, just over the river to the north from Spring Vale. There are 8 clones of Pinot Noir growing at Melrose and they each contribute unique flavour and tannin profiles. The 2017 vintage has also been supplemented with fruit from our 6 hectares of young vines planted at Spring Vale over the last 5 years. The bulk of the Melrose fruit parcels are inoculated by adding yeast as the berries are dispersed through the crusher/destemmer and this ensures a rapid onset of primary fermentation, our goal being to shorten the overall time on skins and avoid excessive tannin extraction for this lighter style Pinot Noir. We also co-inoculate with a lactic acid bacteria strain that thrives in the warm fermenting juice, enabling early completion of malo and a softer mouthfeel in the wine. The wine is drained after 7 days and the skins lightly pressed, following which we create the Melrose blend. After settling this is racked, sulphured, lightly fined to pull out some tannin and aid filterability, crossflow filtered and sterile filtered at bottling. Total production in this vintage of “Melrose” Pinot was a touch over 5,200 dozen."

  3. Hentley Farm Clos Otto 2015

    "Individual estate parcels, machine-harvested, destemmed and crushed, open-fermented with cultured yeast, 8 days on skins, matured in French oak (70% new) for 22 months, blended after 6 months in oak. An exotic bouquet with new shoe leather and a sprinkle of sultry spices, the full-bodied palate with supple blackberry fruits to the fore and an underlay of integrated French oak. There is a finesse to the overall texture, structure and flavour that is remarkable."97 Points, Halliday.

  4. Stoney Rise Pinot Noir 2016

    "Think this is the third time I’ve tried this wine, the first two in informal situations at wine events, but this time, formal. I’m wearing my tasting cravat and smoking jacket. Slight smokiness and spice, raspberry, a little pencilly oak and dried herb perfume. It’s light to medium bodied, full of raspberry flavour, layered with a subtle earthiness and spice, fine grained tannin, and a pretty good finish. It’s a lovely thing to drink. Not overly complex or deep, but very tasty. I like the tannin that comes through on exit too.: structure is excellent. Comes up well with some air." 92 Points, Gary Walsh, The Wine Front.

  5. Vasse Felix Tom Cullity Cabernet Sauvignon Malbec 2014

    "I couldn’t see the fuss at first – and then it hit me. It’s a blend of  80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Malbec and 4% Petit Verdot. It sees 62% new French oak and while there’s oak to be tasted here, the fruit has largely soaked it all up. It’s a cracking wine. It seems light at first, both in colour and flavour, but as it breathes it blossoms and once you’ve spent time with it then it really begins to boom. The power is all under the bonnet; there’s nothing particularly flashy about it. It tastes of camphor and blackcurrant, mint, anise, black olive, bay leaves and smoky oak. Tannin is a kind of crescendo of its own, though it’s not an island: there’s fruit here, gloriously ripened, picked just before it went too far. Length here is quite outstanding." 96 Points, Cambell Mattinson, The Wine Front.

  6. Five Geese Shiraz 2015

    "20yo vines. Here we have a steal of a wine. It's rich with plum, mint and boysenberry-like flavour, carries a gentle splash of hay-like, smoky oak, has been finessed with tannin and draws out juicily through the finish. Vibrant and deep-enough, juicy and delicious. Everything is in the drinker's favour." 94 Points, Campbell Mattinson, Halliday Wine Companion.

  9. Rippon Gamay 2016

    WINERY NOTES. Here it is: lovingly grown, wild fermented, barrel matured. No nutrients, no filtering or fining of any kind, minimal sulphur; we offer you the Rippon Gamay. It’s completely alive and quite beautiful. As much as we note that schist’s compression and foliated structure can issue wines of precision and detail, here schist’s refractive, luminous nature shines a direct, unadulterated light onto Gamay’s own primary fruit and spice.

  10. Rippon Mature Vine Pinot Noir 2013

    “The farm voice” they say at Rippon, summing up the entire estate as a whole. There’s a massively important emotional/cultural connection promoted at Rippon – the handshake between all team members at the start of the day, the entire team hoeing the vines together to begin the work hours, the cleansing ale together at the end of the day – where biodynamics involves not only farming, but how the human element interacts with the place. I like these sentiments. Savoury scents, sweet earth, briar, dark cherry, Chinese five spice, faint amaro sour-sweet characters. Love pinot like this. So succulent in the palate – long, faintly sappy, crisp tannins, beautiful silky carry through the palate, finishes with tobacco-like savouriness and amaro-orange zestiness. All perfectly meshed, so much to think about per sip. Wonderful." 95 Points, Mike Bennie, The Wine Front.
