The Flying Winemaker Pinot Grigio 2023

2d ago
  A clean and easy-drinking Pinot Grigio from The Flying Winemaker, what strikes me about these wines is their approachability, and that itself is a critical factor when buying something off the shelf. Tick! Like the Prosecco NV, it's not a complicated drink but it brings pleasing refreshment. Canned pear, stewed apple and white fleshed peach are the main features of this release. A lick of cinnamon spice curls around the mouth on close with a flicker of apple sours. It's an easy lunchtime go-to for those seeking simple pleasures.

The Flying Winemaker Prosecco NV

2d ago
  A crowd-pleasing Prosecco from The Flying Winemaker. Sourced from the King Valley, it's a very easy fizz to kick back with. It's not complicated by any means but it brings simplicity and approachability and sometimes you just need that. Freshly pressed green apple juice, honeydew melon, white peaches and cut pear mingle and deliver the goods. A whip-crack of lemon acidity cuts in one the finish and cleanses the mouth. Enjoy with spring rolls and battered fish out of the air fryer - the acid will clean up fatty foods with ease. Drink now. 88/100 Region: King Valley RRP: $25 ..read more

Golden Grove Estate Vermentino 2023

  Find me a better Vermentino. This is fresh, vibrant, layered and screaming for sun-shining days. Lemon juice and old school lemonade, sea spray, oyster shell, lemon sherbet and a faint dab of dried rosemary - it's quite the introduction. A considered textural presence is feathered atop the palate offering a gentle caress of creaminess. Portions of barrel ferment, free run juice and full skin fermentation are stitched together delivering a wine of fabulous purity with layers of complexity. A super fine spice lingers long on a persistent finish. The detail is superb and you are rewarded ..read more

Golden Grove Nero d'Avola 2022
QWine - Australian Wine Reviews
by

  A fabulous Nero d'Avola from Golden Grove Estate. Pretty scents flow through to a delicate mouth perfume as it boasts a medium-bodied frame - just beautiful. Purple flowers and lavender light things up before black cherries, blackberries, raspberries and red plums go about their work. There is a distinct earthiness with the hum of Granite Belt minerality. Tense early on, this rode the waves for a few days of tasting. I'd be curious to see how it ages to eight years and beyond - it certainly demonstrates the capability to get there but Nero is not the typical variety you'd tuck away. Bl ..read more

  Not the most conventional blend but gee it works. There's drive, length and a fabulous presence all bundled up in one neat package. Sheets of granite minerality glide through the mouth along with plums, blackberries, dark cherries and licorice. It has a meaty edge with gamey highlights. Fine black tea tannins ride ont he coattails of blackberries that reach long. Drying, the pitter-patter of fine spices and a chalky/powdery finish drive through on a persistent finish. A very popular wine in the cellar door, you could snuggle up to this by the fire on a chilly night and be immensely sa ..read more

These Corryton Burge labels are devoted to the family and this Cornelian Pinot is sourced from the Coal River region where Helen, the mother of the family, was born. A very good Tassie Pinot it is too.  Showing some muscle and depth, it's lined with an array of spices. Juicy dark cherries, red currants, dark plums and a shimmer of blackberries add to the layered fruit profile. Dried twigs, tilled earth and black tea cap off a most enjoyable Tassie Pinot.

  An excellent Riesling with vibrance, clean lines and an acid length that just purrs, this Mesh 2023 from the Eden Valley is a ripper! From the website: Clare Valley’s Jeffrey Grosset and Eden Valley’s Robert Hill-Smith work together each vintage before taking their chosen grapes – Jeffrey’s in the blue buckets and Robert’s in the yellow - and parting ways to crush and ferment the fruit at different locations. Lime zest, green apple and apple sours light up the mood. Add some grapefruit and lime juice and it's humming with that citrusy vibe and tang. There is a fine rub of t ..read more

  Pristine fruit, river stone minerality and taut acidity bring the mouth to water. This is an excellent Riesling from Tasmania's Coal River. Green apples are the lead act from top to toe. They're crunchy with a green apple skin textural feel. White flowers, grapefruit skin and dried lavender add a pretty perfume but it's the tension that steals the show. A wine built with interest and complexity, it's just beautiful! Embrace the freshness now but it will age gracefully.
