A delightfully fragrant and pure riesling exhibiting a mix of citrus and spice to create a deliciously appealing riesling with texture and crispness in perfect balance. This delivers both value for money and excellent drinking with god flavour intensity a feature.
A distinctly fruit driven young savvy offering a mouthful of tropical fruits and plenty of citrus to lift. It’s clean and zesty with a subtle herbaceousness in the background. Zingy fresh finish.
Most appealing rose style. It’s light bodied but with good flavour intensity. Raspberry and subtle cherry characters dominate while the crisp acid retains a freshness and palate zing for the finish. Quite textural, with a nice mouth feel.
Smart little pinot noir for this price. Displays those neat cherry aromas on the nose with some vanillin oak woven in. The palate is soft and medium bodied but there is good tannin strength through the middle and a cut of acidity that keeps it focused. Nice spicy finish. Good wine, this.
Medium bodied smooth talking slick shiraz made for current drinking. Has a plush soft palate structure with fine understated tannins and a little oak. It’s spicy with a liberal sprinkle of white pepper. Lovely mix of plum and mulberry add substance to the palate. Just starting to develop a hint of leathery development which adds another dimension.
The Sum sauvignon blanc 2015 ($17)
Simple, fruity and crunchy savvy loaded with passionfruit and tropical melon nuances from the first sniff through to that last slurp and lick of the lips. It’s a light bodied,
easy-drinking style with a little sweet fruit middle-palate flavour finished with a keen acid edge.
SCORE 89/100 CELLAR 2 years

and crisp finish.
