1 bottle each of:
Semillon, Hunter Valley, NSW
Great fruit intensity and the colours are outstanding with lots of luminous green tints. Lifted aromas of citrus/lemongrass notes. Sweet fruit flavours with great lime juice acidity. This is an outstanding young Hunter Valley Semillon and great drinking now or will age gracefully if a more mature style is desired.
Four Winds Vineyard Riesling, Canberra District, ACT
A very bright colour with excellent green hues. The Canberra district is noted for apple and stone fruit characters and this wine has plenty of both. There are some florals as well. Vibrant palate with citrus and crunchy apple acidity, this is balanced nicely with the residual sugar. A wine of great finesse and flavour.
Forest Edge Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc, Orange, NSW
Very pleasing colour and youthful green tints evident. Bottled and released early, the aromas are all about tropical fruit. Lifted passionfruit and citrus. Lively palate with grapefruit notes and a long lime juice acid finish. As we have said before 'everything a Sauvignon Blanc should be'.
Indigo Vineyard Pinot Noir, Beechworth, VIC
The decision to pick all the Pinot Noir early paid off handsomely. The colour is medium density with lovely purple hues evident. Fragrant Pinot Noir aromas of red cherry and background sweet oak. Soft entry on the palate with forest/dried fruit richness and excellent fruit tannins. Will increase in complexity with bottle age or enjoyed in its youth as a vibrant Pinot Noir.
Wade Block 2 Vineyard Shiraz, McLaren Vale, SA
Vibrant, youthful colour; medium density and lovely purple tints. Being a cooler year the aromas are more on the spice cherry side than ripe and opulent. The alcohol is still 14%. Medium weight palate and again spice and savoury edges. The tell-tale McLaren Vale jube fruit is there along with background oak.
Shiraz, Hunter Valley, NSW
Lifted fresh red fruit and spice characters. The colour still a vibrant deep red. Lovely savoury, red cherry flavours and fine grained tannin from the perfectly ripe fruit and French oak. The oak takes a background seat due to the use of puncheons and mostly older oak. This is a fine Hunter Valley Shiraz.
