Drakesbrook Wild Bird chardonnay 2014 ($20)

This wine is starting to drink at its peak which it should hold for a couple of years. Neat mix of melony stone fruit in this appealing young chardonnay. Has a cereal mealy character underpinning it while a splash of citrus adds some tang and tight tartness.
SCORE 89/100 CELLAR 3 Years

Drakesbrook Wild Bird semillon 2014 ($20)

An attractive semillon that brings all the beautiful perfumed qualities of this excellent variety. Nose shows those beautiful honey and lemon-scented blossom characters. The palate is keen and medium bodied with a lemon tang and crisp lingering acidity. Very good.
SCORE 90/100 CELLAR 5 years

Drakesbrook mourvedre 2013 ($25)

A fully ripe but medium-bodied mourvedre that captures all the good qualities of this Spanish variety. Spicy and dusty with a cherry and raspberry character. The palate is silky smooth with sinewy tannins contributing to a dry savoury finish. Ideal for food
SCORE 89/100 CELLAR 4 years

Drakesbrook Wild Bird shiraz 2013 ($20)

Medium-bodied and quite spicy shiraz. Aromas of spicy plum with a savoury element. The palate is medium weight with a sinewy tread of tannins and some fine grained oak supporting a long controlled finish. A nice alternative to the big bruisers but one still packing plenty of character and flavour.
SCORE 88/100 CELLAR 6 years
