RAY JORDAN WINE GUIDE 2017

 

Brygon Reserve Flying High sauvignon blanc 2016 ($25)

Plenty of punch in this little savvy. Loads of tropical fruit with typical grassy edges to add some complexity. Crisp and clean with a precise finish.

Score: 88/100     Cellar: 2 years

Brygon Reserve Bruce chardonnay 2011 ($25)

This is now a chardonnay reaching its optimum drinking. Showing a nice mix of stone fruit and butterscotch development but there is still a zingy clean acid line that keeps it fresh. Sustained finish.

Score: 89/100    Cellar: 2 years

Brygon Reserve Flying High cabernet merlot 2011 ($25)

Medium bodied but fully ripe and flavoursome cabernet blend. Plenty of blackcurrant and fruitcake characters with a spicy oak infusion. The tannins are supple and the rich palate has a luscious chocolatey savory edge. Best in the short term.

Score: 88/100    Cellar: 3 years

Brygon Reserve Bruce shiraz 2014 ($25)

A spicy medium bodied shiraz showing some interesting cedar and light white pepper characters. The palate has fine dusty oak and fine grained tannins.

Score: 86/100    Cellar: 2 years

Brygon Reserve Humming Bird Series cabernet sauvignon 2014 ($25)

A light to medium bodied cabernet showing some nice red berry and light cedary characters on the nose. The palate has good flavour intensity with a lift of that cedary oak and support of fine tannins. Best in the short term.

Score: 87/100    Cellar: 3 years

Brygon Reserve Bin 8888 cabernet sauvignon 2014 ($25)

Rich and intensely flavoured cabernet from this very good vintage. Spicy light cedar mon the nose with lifted minty red berry nuances. Tightly wound palate with firmish tannins and a lick of oak. Balanced smooth palate.

Score: 90/100    Cellar: 5 years

SCORE 87/100 CELLAR 4 years

Brygon Reserve Humming Bird semillon sauvignon blanc 2014 ($20)

to complement.

Flavoursome easy drinking.

Brygon Reserve The Bruce merlot 2013 ($20)

A lovely expression of Margaret River merlot. Sweet dark blackcurrant fruits with a little fruitcake character, spices and some edgy licorice. There’s some nice chocolate and mocha notes in there adding further complexity. Dry savoury tannins provide balance and support.

SCORE 90/100 CELLAR 5 years

Brygon Reserve The Bruce shiraz 2012 ($20)

A shiraz bursting with opulence and fruit intensity. The nose is plum and blackberry  pominant with some sweet vanillin oak notes. The palate is lush and generous with
a nice balance of fruit and oak supported by firmish threading tannins.
