98 Points - Stuart McCloskey “The bouquet unfurls at its own pace and rushes for no one… With time, crisp orchard fruits, citrus oil, oyster shell, wet stones and the faintest whiff of smoke develop. The palate provides copious layers of soothing fruit infused with minerals. The wine feels tightly-knit (built for the long haul) and incredibly long – intense mineral finish with warming anise and saline. Impeccably balanced and wonderfully complete. This is quite a remarkable Chardonnay and one which has just started its journey. Clearly a different style to the Malmsbury, but equally compelling, nonetheless. I would love to see this served against, young Grand Cru Burgundy. Drink now to 2031. Best from 2025 onwards. Served using Zalto Bordeaux glassware.”

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.

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 is produced by the coastal areas and this means that a wide range of wines can be made, from stunningly complex Chardonnay and delicate Pinot Noir in the Yarra Valley, to savoury and rich Shiraz from Heathcote and iconic fortified wines from Rutherglen.

Victoria is fast becoming one of our favourite regions with many new producers joining us from here, including Shadowfax, Mulline, and Eastern Peake.
