    May 12, 2019 - Claudio Radenti is one of the rare Tasmanian-born winemakers that followed this path from the region’s cardinal baby steps. In 1989, his wife, Lindy Bull, became the first Tasmanian female to graduate as a winemaker (you go, girl). For the past 30 years, they worked and travelled across France, Italy, New Zealand, Australia and the US. Today, their 15 hectares of vineyards are located in a sort of amphitheatre – nestled in a valley that protects them from the winds and acts as a heat trap when the sun shines.

    This Chardonnay saw a ten-month barrel fermentation in partially new French oak. A highly complex nose, marked with aromas of meadow flowers, peach, pear, yellow apple, freshly cut grass, biscuit, white pepper and sea salt. Green olive aftertaste. Unfortunately, the alcohol on the palate smothers much of the fruit and acidity, leading to a rather dismal effort in the end. Nothing improves, nor softens the next day.

    March 6, 2018 - Herbaceous. NZ on palate. Opens somewhat in the glass- Big and lean. V long after taste.
