2019 Single Vineyard Selection Riesling – 95 points

It’s fabulously fruited and pristine on the nose showing white flesh nectarine, blossom and lime peel aromas, leading to a finely textured palate that’s splendidly focused and persistent. The wine offers excellent fruit purity together with bright acidity, finishing impressively long and linear. 

 

 

 

2018 Single Vineyard Selection Chardonnay – 94 Points

Offering elegance and exquisite style, the wine shows white flesh nectarine, fig, nougat and roasted hazelnut characters on the nose with a hint of flinty complexity. The palate is wonderfully weighted and expansive with fine texture and bright acidity, making it flavoursome yet refined and sophisticated. 

 

 

2018 Single Vineyard Selection Grenache – 94 Points

Sweetly fruited and delightfully perfumed, the bouquet shows Black Doris plum, raspberry and floral characters with nuances of anise and vanilla. It’s succulent and fleshy on the palate, delivering excellent fruit purity and vibrancy, wonderfully complemented by silky texture and rounded tannins. A fabulous expression.

 

 

2018 Single Vineyard Selection Mataro

Ripe, dense and opulent, this gorgeous rendition shows black/blueberry, violet, vanilla, cedar and subtle spice aromas on the nose, followed by a wonderfully weighted palate that’s fleshy and lingering. It’s sumptuous and plush with a lengthy delicious finish. 

 

 

 

2018 Single Vineyard Selection Malbec

Offering terrific fruit richness with seductive complexity, the bouquet shows dark plum, mulberry, olive, game, cocoa and toasted nut characters. The palate delivers excellent fruit intensity together with rich texture and silky tannins, making it delectable and persistent. A wonderfully generous wine with attractive savoury undertones. 

 

 

 

2018 Single Vineyard Selection Shiraz

The wine is instantly appealing on the nose showing blackberry, dark cherry, warm spice, cedar and dark chocolate aromas. It’s superbly concentrated and persistent on the palate, offering excellent depth and multi-layered mouthfeel, leading to a irresistibly delicious, expansive finish.
