Fermoy Estate semillon sauvignon blanc 2015 ($25)

The semillon dominance in this excellent blended white is clearly evident. It brings a grassy lemon character to the deeper tropical fruits of the sauvignon blanc. Textured and seamlessly woven together with a crisp sustaining acidity and plenty of driving fruit.
SCORE 88/100 CELLAR 3 Years

Fermoy Estate Reserve chardonnay 2015 ($50)

One of the best chardonnays from Fermoy. Notes of white peach, brioche and lightly roasted cashew on the nose strike an immediate appeal. The palate is controlled and finely balanced with a deep intensity of fruit. Has a fine acid and minerally edge which provides the focus through to the finish.
SCORE 93/100 CELLAR 8 years

Fermoy Estate cabernet sauvignon merlot 2013 ($25)

A pleasing medium-bodied blend offering a decent mouthful of intense flavour. Fine tannins and a lick of oak complete the package of a wine just made for drinking in the short term. Like the red berry lift on the palate with that little black olive edge.
SCORE 89/100 CELLAR 5 years

Fermoy Estate shiraz 2013 ($30)

Medium-bodied shiraz with a distinct pepper lift on the nose. The palate is balanced with the use of French and American oak adding a neat level of complexity and palate completeness. The sweet fruit is balanced with the spicy pepperiness to create a lovely mouthfeel. Great food wine with those dry tannins on the finish.
SCORE 90/100 CELLAR 4 years

Fermoy Estate Reserve cabernet sauvignon 2014 ($50)

Opens with a delightful perfume of red berry and violet with a lift of cedary oak. Into the palate the quality of the wine becomes evident. There’s supreme balance and deep fruit concentration harnessed with a controlled tannin and oak combination. Has an effortless yet powerful palate that drives through to a very long finish. Good cellaring potential here.
SCORE 94/100 CELLAR 15 years
