I recently mentioned in another review that there is only one state in this mighty fine country of ours that has wine regions that I am yet to visit. In case you didn’t read it, New South Wales is that state I was referring to. Now, I’m not sure how that came to be and I have no excuses or reasons, it’s just how things have played out over the last 20+ years. As fate would have it, my wife and I now have very close family (our 2 grandsons and their parents) living in Sydney. As a result of that, there will be frequent trips to see them and the distinct possibility of factoring in a journey ‘out west’. I simply have no excuse anymore. It’ll be the perfect opportunity to visit wineries like this one and experience tasting terrific wines just like this one.
A very pleasant floral nose with added aromas similar to a berry basket full of ‘fruits of the forest’ too. The palate is pretty darn good! Fresh, fat, rich and juicy ripe fruits galore. There’s plums, blueberries and blackcurrants with a creamy vanilla and milk chocolate kind of texture. It’s beautifully broad on the palate, the tannins are lovely and fine, and there’s plenty of length to please many a punter. This is a super delicious, yummy wine that is very well, almost ridiculously priced.
Region: Hunter Valley, NSW Price: $40 (Seems wrong but it can be picked up cheaper if you shop around) Source: A gift from a generous mate who certainly knows his wine, Steve Lezynski
