A paradox in its structure with apparent austerity on the nose yet blessed with juicy and bursting flavours of grapefruit zest, lime and lemon on the palate. Angular with tangy acid and wet stone that lingers on the finish. A very good dry Riesling that complements Asian food well but would make a good addition to the cellar for those who are willing for five to seven years.
Ripe dark and red fruit but without being jammy. Notes of wild strawberries, raspberries and plum with moderate acid, supple tannins and silky texture. Full body with moderate finish. Represents well the new wave of reds in McLaren Vale that are more about the purity of fruit than a blockbuster to impress. Serve slightly chilled. Soul warming.
Deep ruby in colour. Cedary, lightly floral, blackcurrant bouquet. Medium body, dry, savoury, plum and blackcurrant flavours carried on lively acidity. Well-structured, with ripe tannins. Great with steak.
Bone dry with bright acid and explosive notes of white grapefruit, key lime pie and white peaches that awake the taste buds. Simple with a moderate finish but so thirst quenching. A great partner when you are ordering sushi to go.
Since 1985, this yeoman has been many people’s introduction to Australian wine—or even wine in general. Medium-deep yellow, with a nose of pineapple and tropical fruits topped with a touch of oak. Light-bodied and light-flavoured, no doubt for the broadest possible appeal, it is easy to quaff, jam-packed with stone fruit and orange flavours, with a touch of lemony acidity. It was nice company for duck chowder, the oak in the wine complementing the smoky bacon in the chowder. Drink now.
Refreshing with bright acid and expressive yet not over the top. Notes of guava, lime, grapefruit and lemon with a touch of grass. Light body and pure with a medium finish. Shines when enjoyed with grilled asparagus and poached eggs lightly sprinkled with fresh Parmesan.
