96+/98 Points - Stuart McCloskey “An electric bouquet of lemon oil, intense citrus, liquid minerals, chalk and faint wafts of nougat. The palate is an intense experience as it fights between grace, citrus power and an impressive line of acidity. Thrilling, tense, nervy and must be decanted for 20-30 minutes. I detect a little sherbet, more citrus fruits, sea salt, very saline with flavours fanning out with more time in the glass. This is a direct and precise wine but there’s a charming sense of harmony and poise towards the finish. Fabulous and I am intrigued to see how this develops over the coming years. Perhaps the most fascinating Aussie Chardonnay of 2019?”.

96 Points - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front) "Very saline and racy, green apple and preserved lemon, toasted hazlenuts, whisper of struck match. It has zing and tingle, a lot of flint and brine, intense acidity, but set diamond-like through luxurious flavour. Again that spice and toasted hazelnut, a dollop of oatmeal, grip, lemon pith and superb length as it goes. You have to like them falling more to savoury/saline than simply fruit-sweet, but the precision and power here is really something."

Zalto Denk-Art Bordeaux Glass

The Zalto Bordeaux glass is recommended for weightier style reds, probably our most widely used glass when tasting in house, this glass is great for many different wines. The large bowl helping aerate and soften tannins whilst accentuating the wine's depth and concentration. The Bordeaux glass is the ideal choice for Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Zinfandel, Bordeaux or Rhône style blends and many other red wines. Surprisingly, it is also the glass of choice for oaked Chardonnay, the shape of the bowl accentuating the balance of ripe fruits and oak.

Producer

Joshua Cooper Wines UK

 

We have dropped Joshua Cooper from our exclusive list of producers, which and given the fact we awarded his Springs Syrah our 2019 Wine of the Year must come as a surprise. The quality and style of his wines was never an issue as the entire collection is nothing short of outstanding. We work with some incredibly generous wine producers who really go out of their way to communicate with us (and in turn you). Sadly, Joshua has a unique ‘can’t be bothered’ attitude and has no intention of answering a single email or helping to establish his name in a new market which curious to say the very least. So, and out of respect to our willing winemakers and our own ethics, he’s been unceremoniously dropped from our portfolio. There is some good news! We’ve slashed the prices as space is at a premium and reserved to wine producers who care about their customers.

Region

Buy wines from Victoria, Australia

Despite being the second smallest state in Australia, Victoria is home to over 600 wineries, more than any other wine-producing state. However, Victoria does not produce the most wine, as rather than producing mass quantities of cheaper wine, its wineries tend to be smaller and more boutique in style. The cool climate here produced by the coastal areas means that a wide range of wines can be made, from stunningly complex Chardonnay’s and delicate Pinot Noirs in the Yarra Yarra Valley, to savoury and rich Shiraz from Heathcote and iconic fortified wines from Rutherglen.

Our favourite producers from the Victoria region include By Farr and from the Heathcote area, Wild Duck Creek.
