Premium Mixed Dozen (12 pack) - Winter Sale
2 x bottles 2020 Pinot Gris, Currency Creek, SA
Pinot Gris grapes can be quite coloured, even pink in some years; this wine is a lovely yellow/green. The initial palate of nashi pear and beeswax is carried by a zesty acidic backbone. Being a slightly warmer vintage, the palate carries more weight and richness. A delightful Pinot Gris that just asks to be consumed.
2 x bottles 2014 Trevena, Kindred Semillon, Hunter Valley, NSW
The wine has a very appealing green tint on release at four years bottle age. The citrus, lemon grass notes are starting to morph into cut grass and will ultimately end up as bees wax and toast after 7+ years bottle age. With lovely limejuice acidity, this Trevena, Kindred blend while very enjoyable now will reward cellaring.
2 x bottles 2020 Stanleigh Park Vineyard Chardonnay, Hunter Valley NSW
Careful winemaking has resulted in a perfect green tinted yellow colour. Excellent complexity on the nose and palate after pressing whole bunches and a wild ferment in barrel. Cashew notes from the fine French oak compliment the white peach and grapefruit characters. A very fine and delicate Chardonnay that will evolve over the next few years.
2 x bottles 2019 Indigo Vineyard Pinot Noir, Beechworth, VIC
Beautiful medium density colour and lovely, complex aromas of dark cherry and Campari-like notes. These characteristics follow through to the palate showing great balance, with flavours of charred oak and savoury, ‘forest floor’ characters that carry through to the finish. A Pinot Noir that will age well over the medium to long term.
2 x bottles 2019 Hunter Valley Shiraz, Hunter Valley NSW
Superb colour with dark red and purple hues. Lifted aromas of red fruit and ginger spice. While there is some oak, it is very much in the background. Soft entry on the palate, fine tannins and perfect acid carry through to the finish. A typical medium bodied Hunter Valley Shiraz that will give drinking pleasure now and over the long term.
2 x bottles 2018 Vegas Block Shiraz, Hunter Valley, NSW
A mid density wine with purple tints from the whole bunch/stalk technique used, which presents lifted, red cherry aromas and bramble notes. A very fragrant, pretty nose. 30% whole bunch was incorporated into the ferment. Some oak is evident but in the background which adds another subtle layer. Silky tannins and the savoury fruit make for a very enjoyable Hunter Valley light dry red.
