2017 Semillon, Hunter Valley, NSW
Classic Hunter Valley Semillon aromas of talc, citrus rind and notes of orange blossom in the background. A superb colour with expansive flavours of lime pith supported by zesty citrus acid. This wine has a great balance and finish, reflected by its Gold Medal win at the 2017 Royal Melbourne Wine Awards.
2017 Cricket Pitch White, New South Wales
Great colour on release, lots of green tints in this young and easy drinking wine. Lifted tropical Sauvignon Blanc aromas and citrus/melon notes. Lovely soft round entry on the palate and even at 12.0% there is plenty of fruit richness. Grapefruit flavours and a zesty acidity give a pleasing finish to the wine. A perfect summer drink and great with a wide range of food.
2016 Umpires Chardonnay, Central Ranges, NSW
A very appealing yellow/green tinted colour. Citrus and tropical aromas with plenty of primary fruit as a young wine. Minimal oak influence and adds a slight bran meal note. More tropical fruit on the palate balanced by bright zesty acidity. An excellent flavoursome Chardonnay.
2012 Friends' Selection Cabernet Sauvignon Central Ranges, NSW, Beechworth, VIC & Hunter Valley, NSW
Mid to deep colour and density with youthful purple tints. Lifted cassis and leafy fruit with cedar/vanillin oak background. Very sweet entry to the palate and quite firm (but not aggressive) ripe tannins. Good alcohol weight. Dusty tobacco Cabernet Sauvignon flavours on the finish. A classic Cabernet Sauvignon that will reward with short term cellaring.
2017 Sangiovese, Beechworth, VIC
Vibrant young colours and medium density. Very fragrant and appealing nose of red/maraschino cherry aromas. The background shows sweet oak, although the wine was not in any new barrels. Bright, savoury Sangiovese fruit on the palate with juicy acidity. Typical drying tannins and red spice/ginger notes with a great finish. Immensely enjoyable.
2016 Friends' Selection Shiraz, McLaren Vale, SA, Hunter Valley, NSW & Beechworth, VIC
A blend of Hunter Valley, Mclaren Vale and Beechworth Shiraz. Hand selected for our 'Friends of Brokenwood' release. Medium crimson red with bright and youthful tints and aromas of spice, mocha and cherry bramble from the oak. Blackberry and savoury fruit from the Hunter marries beautifully with the liquorice and red fruit from Mclaren Vale and Beechworth. Soft tannins and a dry savoury finish round it out. Ideal with lamb, veal and pasta.
