Currently more Burgundy than Oregon but a further 12 to 24 months bottle age will bring this Chardonnay back home. Reticent at first, but then unfurling with a little aeration with subtle mineral notes, spice and flint. There seems more tension than previous vintages. I imagine richer notes will emerge over the course of the next 3-5 years.
Floral, expressive nose and notes of apricot and peach on the palate with a lovely roundness and a fresh, refined finish. A stunning blend of Grenache Blanc, Bourboulenc, Clairette, Roussanne and Viognier.
Bright, pure, elegant and refined; concentrated, yet light on the palate. The nose exhibits aromas of citrus and green apple with a chalky mineral complexity. The palate is crisp with flavours of grapefruit and hints of honeysuckle.

Bright cherry red. Perfumed cherry and raspberry, seasoned by bouquet garni and savoury, piquant spice. A complex palate delivers layers of flavour around a core of dark fruit characters, cherry stone flavours and fraises des bois, smokiness and red fruit, candied scents and vanilla oak, lingering finish on a length of silky, refined tannins.

Relatively light, although healthy, colour; the expressive, perfumed bouquet of cassis leads into a finely balanced and shaped palate, with cassis, redcurrant and plum all in play; the finish and aftertaste are particularly impressive.

One hundred per cent chardonnay, spending two years on tirage/yeast lees, the wine has abundant peachy fruit, indeed more than expected, even though it was early-picked. There won't be too many complaints about that flavour.

The Yarra Valley is possibly the ultimate region in Australia for growing Chardonnay. Add to that reputation Soumah's definitive vineyard site planted with the very finest clones and you have the perfect recipe for a modern age, premium Chardonnay.
Made from old vines in around Neive this Barbera from Giacosa is intense ruby red in colour with a bouquet of black cherries and dark plums with hints of chocolate and spice. Rich cassis fruits and black cherry notes of the palate balanced with smooth tannins and a long, full finish.
This beautiful organic chenin blanc shows the house style of Jeremie Mourat perfectly. It has a lovely floral character with gentle hints of honey, pear and apple. Ripe, yet crisp it has a freshness that balances the fruit flavours effortlessly. A delicious and well-structured wine that is more that worth its price-tag.
