Wine Review - Henschke Henry's Seven 2017

In the Henry’s Seven, this addition of the aromatic white grape viognier has given the blend a fragrant lift of some extra pepper and enhanced the violet aromas. These are joined by fresh plum and more earthy, spicy characters. It has also allowed the wine to retain its youthful purple hued vibrance and added its weight to the fuller body.

Wine Review - Mount Edward TED Pinot Noir 2017

This is soft, and velvet and as elegant as the label is eye catching. Ripe cherry and plum fruit, fresh and juicy, jostles with gentle oak and all this is brought together with a pinch of thyme. It is a bright and vivacious wine that needs no additional accompaniment to make it shine.

Wine Review: Amalaya Malbec 2017

Some subtle and spicy toasted oak underlines some red cherry and berry fruit and gives this core of fruit some structure. Only a small portion (around 25%) of this Malbec has spent 8 months in French oak. This has given the fruit a fuller rounded body, while leaving the fruit fresh and vivacious.

Wine Review: Mitolo Jester Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

This Jester is seriously rich. The ripe aromas of thyme, cassis and cherrie sare
enriched with spiced chocolate and vanilla. On the palate, these aromas are
plumped out further by lush and creamy oak and just a few grams of sugar left in the wine. This makes for a full body, full throttle Cabernet.  It is a juicy wine that you can immediately sink into.
