2017 Chardonnay
BUY NOW

This estate hails from the noble turf of Wilyabrup, employing sustainable viticultural management and relatively hands-off winemaking to transport pristine fruit from vineyard to glass. Toasted hazelnut, cream of cashew, nougatine and wild yeast funk meld effortlessly with bright notes of white fig, cantaloupe and nectarine. The finish is long and effortlessly tangy.

2016 Cabernet Sauvignon
BUY NOW

Blackberry, blueberry, choc-mint, sage and baking spices. It’s plush and full of flavour, but not heavy or cumbersome, with ripe dark fruit, mocha and dried herb, even flow, smooth powdery tannin, and a tobacco and spice finish of fine length and definition. It’s a really good wine, just ever so slightly off an even higher score.

In fantastic form. Combination of price and quality here makes for a killer buying proposition. This wine is beautifully fruited and deliciously smooth, its heart of blackcurrant wrapped in licorice, creamy vanilla and violets. Gum leaf notes add lift, tannin adds a bit of scaffolding. Length is impressive. Everything here is in alignment.

2015 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon
BUY NOW

Cocoa, mint, black fruit, baking spices and biscuits. Full-bodied, smooth mass of supple tannin, a lot of chocolate, mint and dark fruit, black olive, slightly too firm acidity and perhaps texture and ripeness at the expense of energy. It’s a good wine, though I like the 2016 standard release better.

Closed and brooding but with ample fruit, tannin, texture and length. Archetype of the cellaring red. Balance is one of its main virtues but so too is a weight of pure, ripe flavour. Time will be rewarded.

2017 Malbec
Sold Out Online

Plum, rose, cedar and pencils, choc-mint, a shake of pepper. Medium-weight, supple tannin, fine boned yet flavoursome, savoury and long. Beauty. Super debut.

Delicious malbec here, plying violet scents, bitter cherry and dark plum to anise and clove scents across a swab of perfectly positioned tannins. A nice piste of vibrant fruit and just-firm-enough structural supports, all lending themselves to a certain approachability together with the capacity for mid-term age.
