Sexton Vineyard Chardonnay 2017


#winery just bought by #jacksonfamily wines and I completely understand why. Amazing. #yarravalley #chardonnay pale lemon color, the wine has pronounced aromas of citrus (lemon, nectarine and grapefruit) and stone fruit (apricot) with secondary aromas of toast, flint and butter. On the palate the wine is dry with medium (+) acidity, medium/high 13,5% alcohol, medium(+) body and pronounced flavours. With a certain hint of lemon yoghurt and cream. Medium (+) Creamy finish. Outstanding #australia — 3 years ago

Reserve Release Yarra Valley Chardonnay

Absolutely excellent chardonnay; totally opposite to the fruity brigade that dominates reviewers' minds; this is restraint, mealy, wheaten nose; great maturity though lime green at 7 yrs; 12% alc, hand sorted, mature vines meaning 35+ I guess; taut and true to light- medium category of this variety; has dignity not brashness; long ager too; paired with seafood bouillabaisse; #drinkoz #victorianwine #yarravalley #dixonscreek #debortoli #chardonnay #reserverelease #2008 #12% #maturewine #maturingchardonnay #maturevines — 9 years ago

Yarra Valley Nebbiolo 2012

Luke Lambert 2012 Yarra Valley Nebbiolo. Loaded with personality & character. Along with Arrivo showing the potential of Neb in Aus. The value question is the one that needs to be answered when you can get Voerzio Langhe & Vietti Perbacco for under $50. Lambert's Neb is heaps of fun. Yeah there's some slightly aggressive mid palate tannin that needs food to soften it. Overall an Aussie Neb to watch. If he can get the fruit & tannin length I'll be back. Thanks for bringing the tube @bendid #Nebbiolo #FilthyGoodVino #YarraValley #LukeLambert #RealWine — 8 years ago

Yarra Valley Pinot Noir 2011

You either like it or hate it. In my case I don't like it I love it. Lifted perfumed nose, cherry blossom, mad intensity and a super long finish craving for another sip. Can't get over the long lasting flavors of sweet & sour cherry and a dry tobacco leaf. Well if. I am lucky this may last me another hour @yarrayering #pinotnoir #yarravalley #yarrayering — 8 years ago
