Redoubt Hill Vineyard Pinot Gris 2009

Date: Sat, Oct 24, 2009 Wine Tasting

Wasn’t overly keen to review this Redoubt Hill pinot gris but once I got it into my mouth, it quickly won me over. It’s being distributed in Australia by Eurocentric Wine. You need a subscription to The Wine Front to see this part of the post

Marchand & Burch Chardonnay 2008

Date: Sat, Oct 24, 2009 Wine Tasting

The 2007 vintage was an impressive debut. This vintage, I think, is a little better again. You need a subscription to The Wine Front to see this part of the post

Robert Stein Reserve Shiraz 2007

Date: Sat, Oct 24, 2009 Wine Tasting

Mudgee has had a bit of a torrid time over the Noughties what with one thing and another, but I really like their reds. I’ve not visited the region since, hmmmm, maybe around 2000 or thereabouts. It’s a beautiful part of the world. The grapes used to produce this wine were planted in 1976, from [...]

Lenton Brae Cabernet Merlot 2008

Date: Fri, Oct 23, 2009 Wine Tasting

It’s a blend of 55 percent cabernet with 45 percent merlot. It’s an attractive mix of fleshy flavour and sturdy structure … and it screams Margaret River. You need a subscription to The Wine Front to see this part of the post

Provenance Pinot Noir 2007

Date: Thu, Oct 22, 2009 Wine Tasting

I’m told that this Provenance Pinot Noir has scored highly elsewhere though its quality is pretty obvious. You need a subscription to The Wine Front to see this part of the post

Angove Family Winemakers Organic Shiraz Cabernet 2008

Date: Thu, Oct 22, 2009 Wine Tasting

The 2007 Angove Organic Shiraz Cabernet was a very nice release and a breakthrough for affordable, organically grown red wine in Australia. I have a feeling that Angove is taking this market segment very seriously because this release over-delivers on the price too. In fact it’s delicious drinking. The alcohol is modest too - one [...]

Hillcrest Vineyard Village Pinot Noir 2008

Date: Thu, Oct 22, 2009 Wine Tasting

I’m not entirely sure what makes it a Village wine i.e. whether it’s young vines or lesser barrels or what not. Anyway, young man, there’s no need to feel down…I said young man.. You need a subscription to The Wine Front to see this part of the post

Perrier-Jouët Grand Brut NV

Date: Thu, Oct 22, 2009 Wine Tasting

It’s made from a blend of 35 percent pinot noir, 40 percent pinot meunier and 25 percent chardonnay. It’s a Perrier-Jouët so it’s beautifuly packaged. It has an exceptional ‘lightness’ in the mouth … fluffiness might be the technical term … but aside from that, I’m not a great rave for it. I notice that Mr [...]

Pegasus Bay Sauvignon Semillon 2008

Date: Thu, Oct 22, 2009 Wine Tasting

I wonder why they give places names like “Pegasus Bay”? It’s not likely that you’d be seeing them  frolicking and gambolling about on a sandy stretch, just next to the unicorns… You need a subscription to The Wine Front to see this part of the post

Waipara Hills Soul of the South Sauvignon Blanc 2008

Date: Thu, Oct 22, 2009 Wine Tasting

I’m sure a lot of Australian wine makers would like to say of Kiwi SB - “You are soul”. You need a subscription to The Wine Front to see this part of the post

Yalumba Hahn Farm Vineyard Light Pass Shiraz 2006

Date: Wed, Oct 21, 2009 Wine Tasting

The thing I like about these Yalumba Single Site wines is their restraint. They’re not in any way over the top. You need a subscription to The Wine Front to see this part of the post

Gembrook Hill Pinot Noir 2008

Date: Wed, Oct 21, 2009 Wine Tasting

Gembrook Hill wines are made by Timo Mayer and Andrew Marks. It could well be the best winemaking duo in the country - though admittedly they have some stiff competition. That a tiny estate like Gembrook Hill has such winemaking nouse at their disposal though is quite remarkable. I’ll be writing an article on Gembrook [...]

Maitre Renard Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2007

Date: Wed, Oct 21, 2009 Wine Tasting

This is another partnership between Nicholas Crampton (Foster’s will rue the day it set him free) and a Frenchman - this time, with Bernard Schurr. The idea is “to make a good value Burgundy with professional winemaking”. The grapes are grown in Marsannay and the Cotes de Nuits. It was matured in oak for eight [...]

Le Chat Noir 2008

Date: Wed, Oct 21, 2009 Wine Tasting

Made from grapes grown in two vineyards - Domaine du Treille and de Martinolles - in the Aude Valley. The folks behind this wine like to think of it as the best French pinot noir made outside of Burgundy. It’s made in a fresh, low oak style. It’s made by winemaker Vinson Charlon. Again - if [...]
