The aromas of roses & Turkish delight are Gewurz-like in intensity but there is the added minerality from the Riesling & some pear apparent too. The acid shows the fineness of the Riesling & keeps the blend fresh and in line along the long length. Being slightly off dry adds to [...]
The pretty lime & lemon citrus has that vital nerve that you want to see in fine Clare Riesling with a slatey backbone. It is delicate & linear along the long palate with zingy acid that has poise & balance.

This is a riper style leaving you to enjoy the full intensity of the candied pineapple with hints of spice & lychee. Refreshing with a long silky length. A gorgeously mouth filling wine with plenty of food friendly qualities.

Dry, sweetly perfumed with spicy rose & tropical lychee that are typical for wines made from this big-hearted grape. Matching the richness on the nose, the plush fruit bursts onto the palate immediately making you slow down to literally ‘smell the roses’.

A lighter style of Semillon Sauvignon Blanc with zesty lemon, apple & pear fruit that dips its hat to tropical ripeness. It was the freshness that appealed to me. It is refreshingly crisp. This is a wine that you can fully appreciate on a summery day sitting down to lunch with friends.

An ultimately gluggable wine with plenty of round nutty pear & apple freshness. A wine that you can enjoy at your next BBQ or to cheekily open on a warm afternoon.

There is plenty of soft citrus freshness almost dipping to stonefruit ripeness complimented with just a hint of caramel nuttiness. A silky & supple modern Chardonnay that will pair nicely with a grilled chicken salad.

Displaying the aromatics of a warm summer garden, the characters of this wine could be described as a delicately herbed salad tossed with ripe apple, pear & melon with a zingy lemon dressing. It will keep your interest along its crisp clean long length.

The 2005 has the toasty lemon with smoky honey that makes it a good aged Semillon prospect at a value price point. The flavours hang around in the mouth & end on a honeyed note. Good drinking now but could keep for a little longer too.

There is plenty of ripe passionfruit & peach in this Sauvignon Blanc, the time in oak & on lees has also imparted a light creaminess while still keeping the varietal refreshing acidity. The softer style makes it a succulent wine to share with friends. The price is not too shabby either.
