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.
Pinot Gris, Beechworth, VIC
Pinot Gris grapes can be quite coloured, even pink in some years; this wine is a lovely yellow/green. The initial palate of pear and beeswax is carried by a zesty acidic backbone. Pinot Gris can have a touch of phenolic ‘grip’, but at 12.5% alcohol this wine is bright and zippy.
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'.
Forest Edge Vineyard Pinot Noir, Orange, VIC
A terrific year for Pinot Noir and it shows in every aspect of this wine. Light to medium density with purple edges. Lifted smokey, dark cherry and pastille aromas that keep you returning to smell them. Perfect ‘sweet fruit’ flavours on the initial palate and then a slight maraschino cherry note. Sweet oak and juicy acidity give a long lasting flavour combination. A wine of unrestrained pleasure and can be enjoyed in the short term or over the next few years.
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.
