Flight 1 (8 Notes)

  • 2011 Woodlands Chardonnay Chloe 95 Points

    Australia, Western Australia, South West Australia, Margaret River

    An austere mineral nose of wet stone with delicate buttery oak and limes and lemons. The palette has bold and racy acid with a big strong citrus and stone fruit to match and a silly mouthfeel. This will cellar well.

  • 2010 Woodlands "Margaret" 93 Points

    Australia, Western Australia, South West Australia, Margaret River

    A great, minty perfume with eucalyptus and white pepper. The palette has a much better structure than the regular Cabernet-Merlot with the acidity in check and chocolate and tannins working with the delicate acidic finish.

  • 2006 Woodlands Cabernet Sauvignon Robert Reserve 91 Points

    Australia, Western Australia, South West Australia, Margaret River

    Green stalk and oak perfume with earthy plums and tobacco leaf. The palette is softer and more delicate than previous vintages, but the mouthfeel is still big, although the tannins were stretched and could have used some backup.

  • 2009 Woodlands Cabernet Sauvignon Alma May Margaret River 94 Points

    Australia, Western Australia, South West Australia, Margaret River

    A dark chocolate, violets and plum nose with mint and eucalyptus coming through after a moment in the glass. The acidity is big yet the delicate tannins still come through and there is a nice burst of cherry fruit.

  • 2011 Woodlands Pinot Noir Réserve de la Cave 95 Points

    Australia, Western Australia, South West Australia, Margaret River

    A very well made, unfiltered Pinot with a fabulous, savoury palette of crushed rocks and florals. There is acidity to burn in the palette which matches the lively confectionary and savoury note. Really good Burgundian funk and very well structured.
