If you ever needed reminding why the Yarra is ‘God’s country’, today is the proof! And tomorrow night (May 1st) it gets better again with Gary Mills joining us from 5pm with his new release Jamsheed wines.
The Jamsheed label was recently listed in the Top 100 Wineries in the world by influential US magazine ‘Wine + Spirits’, one of only five to make the cut from Australia (along with Penfolds, Giant Steps, Leeuwin Estate and D’Arenberg) – prettty good company to keep!
Gary’s label has gone beyond a cool short term fad and is now a real force. This Friday night we’ll crack open the following wines:
- 2013 Beechworth Roussanne
- 2013 Pyrenees Syrah
- 2013 Beechworth Syrah
- 2013 Seville Syrah
- 2013 La Menace Rouge
Join us from 5pm this Friday (May 1st) with Gary and see what all the fuss is about!
Yarra Yering new releases this weekend – all day Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd May!
Hoddles Creek Estate 2014 releases
Chardonnay and Pinot – 60% down in volume – get them while you can!
Franco’s wines don’t need to be pumped up by us any more than they already are – cracking wines, and even better when you consider the dollars required. Here are a couple of reviews though, just to put your mind at ease:
Hoddles Creek Chardonnay 2014
Hoddles Creek Estate chardonnay never misses a beat. This release comes in immaculate conditional. It’s steely, elegant, long and alluring. Strong flavours of pear and spice, white peach and nectarine swish through the palate, aided subtly by meal and smoky oak. Everything is exactly where you’d like it to be; it will though be a better wine in another 6-12 months time, and thereafter. 93+pts (Winefront, April 2015)
Hoddles Creek Pinot Noir 2014
Quite simply, it’s a beautiful wine to drink. Buy some, buy lots. It’s such a charming drink. Ripe but savoury, spicy but rich with succulent appeal. One sip and you just want to settle back and go on with it. Cherries, dry leaves, some mint, the sweet smoky spiciness of oak. Sourness, just a touch. Pinot noir to the Nth degree. High value? Yes. Again. 93pts (Winefront, April 2015)
Get in while they last – $19.00 each.
