 RAY JORDAN WINE GUIDE 2017

Killerby chardonnay 2014 ($30)

Bouquet opens with a distinctive intensity of Margaret River. Toasty oak, creamy fruit and a savoury mineral edge. The fruit and oak combination works beautifully on the palate, applying control and definition as it takes the wine through to a long finish. It’s a wine that is continuing to evolve and looking good for a few more years.

Score: 93/100    Cellar: 5 years

Killerby cabernet sauvignon 2014 ($32)

A wine that captures all that is good about Margaret River. Blackcurrant and a subtle leafy tobacco and black olive influence on the nose. It is immediately engaging. The palate is poised and impeccably balanced with neat tannin and oak supporting some deep fruit concentration.

Score: 92/100    Cellar: 10 years

 

 

 RAY JORDAN WINE GUIDE 2016

Killerby shiraz 2013 ($32)

Margaret River-sourced shiraz displaying the typical regional savoury dusty edginess that gives it such character. Lovely soft and supple wine with spices and dried herbs. It’s soft and supple with a loamy gravelly character in the middle palate. Excellent wine.

SCORE 93/100 CELLAR 7 years

Killerby chardonnay 2014 ($30)

Bouquet opens with a distinctive intensity of Margaret River. Toasty oak, creamy fruit and a savoury mineral edge. The fruit and oak combination works beautifully on the palate, applying control and definition as it takes the wine through to a long finish.

SCORE 92/100 CELLAR 5 years

Killerby cabernet sauvignon 2012 ($32)

Good solid cabernet from this very good year. The blackcurrant and black olive-edged fruit has absorbed the 14 months in French oak. It’s a powerful and assertive cabernet with deep fruit concentration and solid structure. Lovely meaty savoury influence emerges from the palate. Excellent wine with some cellaring potential.

SCORE 93/100 CELLAR 10 years
