  • 2012 Punt Road Pinot Noir

    God what a bargain of a wine. This must be the best sub $25 Australian red wine I've had since the 2010 Cirillo Grenache.

    It has the main thing you should want in a wine. It's just damn delicious. I LOVE the sour cherry / crisp apple acidity. Hugely refreshing wine and just the ticket as I was a little over wine altogether.

    The nose has an earthy, mild gravel dusty, vegemite on buttery toast(don't let that put you off it's very mild but 2 of us independently made that comment) and sweet cranberry.

    Palate has that gorgeous acidity mentioned and it lingers and lingers like a young Clare Riesling albeit in a different context.

    This is why I drink wine. I own many good to great wines but rarely do they give this level of pure enjoyment. Yum...and that's what it's all about. I could auction a Grange and buy 15 of these. Makes owning Grange seem ridiculous really.

  • 2011 Greywacke Sauvignon Blanc Wild

    Hugely interesting. Smoky, green pine needles, seaweed, grass and a hint of passionfruit.

    more a cerebral wine than a particularly enjoyable one. great for a glass or to share with a couple of friends but not a wine I feel like having more than a couple of glasses of.

    Glad to have another alternate style SB but I preferred the Dog Point Section 94 by a little margin. gave that 94 points.

  • 2012 Sorrenberg Chardonnay

    Fleshy yellow, oyster shells, gun smoke, fresh Riesling lime/kiwi acidity.

    A bit like an aged chardonnay with the acidity of a young Riesling.

    lovely silky wine. Fleshy and very yellow as mentioned. Unique.

    Drink young. 2014-2016. Yum.
