Bernard Baudry Chinon Le Domaine 2019

A dense, savoury style with wonderful aromatic spice and earth character that feels very true to the Cabernet Franc variety. Le Domaine has a meaty, ferrous, animal nose so typical of top-notch Chinon and this particular Baudry cuvée shows a complex, fluid, sappy palate with roasted meat, wet earth, blackberry pastille and menthol characters. This is not at all a modern, pure, fruit-driven red, but rather it harks back to the more rustic, complex, sauvage, Rabelaisian Chinons of old. That said,

TeMata Estate Awatea Cabernet Merlot 2018

The Awatea is a fantastic introduction to the Te Mata Estate wines.

Little sister to the Coleraine, this also a Bordeaux blend - the 2018 is made up of 48% cabernet sauvignon, 37% merlot, 15% cabernet franc. The wine gives ripe blackberry and blackcurrant aromatics with elements of vanilla creme and sandalwood. On the palat

Tenuta di Trinoro ‘Le Cupole’ Rosso Toscano 2019

The term "Rosso Toscano" usually indicates an inexpensive wine made for everyday drinking. But in this case, the wine is essentially a Super Tuscan, made from a blend of Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Not a drop of Sangiovese, but it's unmistakably Tuscan — intense and concentrated, with a seductive tonal palate and enough body and tannic grip to age and evolve. The second label of Tenuta di Trinoro, Le Cupole was first produced in 1995. It is a blend of Cabern

Domaine des Roches Neuves Samur-Champigny ‘La Marginale’ 2019

Deceptive in it’s depth and length. There is a trick exceptional wines manage, they appear weightless yet have incredible depth and layer after layer of intrigue. This is such a wine. Funny, Thierry’s wines remind me in so many ways of Yarra Yering. When I made wine there we were focused on two things, texture and complexity, building in layer after layer of intrigue. As with Thierry’s fruit we had incredible acidity. We aimed to make wines that you’d drink half a bottle, think, shit tha

Tua Rita Guisto di Notri 2019

In a sense, this wine is like the Bosco dei Sugheri but with the addition of one more grape variety in the blend. The Tua Rita 2019 Giusto di Notri is 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Cabernet Franc and 8% Merlot. I tasted the wine shortly after it had been bottled. With 40,000 bottles made, it should start hitting the market now. The Giusto di Notri offers lots of dark primary fruit with important structure and texture in this classic vintage. Blackberry and black plum cede to spice, tar and campfir

Château Mouton-Rothschild 1er Cru Classe 1982

In pushing the boundaries making Yarra Yerings Dry Red No.1 it was essential that we explored great Bordeaux. Mouton was regularly on the list. Now we have the chance to see just how well those bold 1982's with there insane scores have aged and if the critics got it right! The question? Which of the 1982 1st Growths will reign supreme? Margaux? Latour? Mouton-Rothschild? Cabernet Sauvignon 85% Cabernet Franc 8% Merlot 7%
