The Florita Clare Valley Riesling 2012

Kerosene aromas - some toast. Lovely mature Clare Valley Riesling. Palate has filled out with the influence of citrus diminishing and stone fruit increasing - under ripe peach. Nearly up to the standard of past Rieslings from the storied Florita Vineyard where legendary Rieslings were made for Leo Buring by John Vickery back in the 1970s. Next day strong citrus flavours - remarkably young for a 9 year old Riesling. Will go for at least another 6 years. — 2 years ago

Peaberry Chenin Blanc 2019

Untuned/unfiltered. Apple cider and funk whisper. Brine and pith and orange blossom on the pallet. Killer. Buy more now! — a year ago

Eveline Pinot Noir 2017

Hillinger Eveline Pinot Noir 2017. Pale Ruby in the glass with light staining of the tears. Nose: medium+ notes of ripe cranberry, bubblegum or red cherry cough drops, hints of floral. Violet, maybe? and a touch of mushroom and brett. Medium flavor intensity, dry, medium+ acidity, medium- body, medium alc, medium- tannins (silty, back-of-palate bitter) Brighter fruit aromas yield to cooked elements of the same and more of the funky elements on the palate, where tertiary elements abound: smoke, forest floor, black pepper, take center stage along with some introduction of mineral/graphite. Medium+ finish. This wine presents a complex and evolving experience, well integrated acidity and flavor characteristics. The alcohol angles out a bit, but will mellow with ageing. Delicious now. Seriously. Buy two bottles and compare notes at a later date. — 4 years ago

I like it when your fingertips slide through my hair Viognier 2020

Viognier in a light and easy going style. Lots of lemon and yellow stone fruit, medium acidity. Clean and focused. — 2 years ago

Passo Del Cardinale Primitivo Di Manduria 2018

It is a medium dark wine with a savory nose, showing violets, licorice, forest floor and a touch of cardamom. The palate is spicy, with black pepper and herbs joining the black berry profile. The tannins are quite firm and the acidity is fresh. It is a youthful wine which will pair nicely with a pork roast. — 3 years ago
