Stanner’s Pinot Gris … Colin left the juice in contact with the skins, which had the effect of adding a dimension of amber colour to all that is fine regarding this varietal: subdued notes of Meyer lemon and Anjou pear with a hint of almond on the nose, and a mouth feel of ginger spice lime key pie.
Hillier Creek Estate 2013 Chardonnay … From the initial eye of sun-washed straw, a nose of peach blossom with hints of marzipan, and a palate of Granny Smith apple and lemon-lime pie — this wine a a true delight. It appeals as a summer sipper, but also has the heft to accompany a wide range of dishes.
2015 Huff Pinot Gris … Resident winemaker Frederick Picard decided to produce this wine in steel tanks without the influence of wood. Allowing contact with the lees while in the tank positively influenced the structural integration of the wine — and at the same time added aroma, acidity and residual sweetness. Well played!
Harwood Estate … 2014 Windward White, which is a really striking blend of five varietals, What makes this wine so attractive is the way in which John and his team allowed each varietal show their best attributes. This is definitely a wine to have as a pre-dinner aperitif or to pair with some local perch or pickerel
The Casa Dea 2015 Cabernet Franc Rosé is a winner — grab some for the upcoming May 24 weekend which is predicted to be a super sunny weekend… The new labelling simply makes the container match the wonderful wine within.
