Flying Fish Cove

Flying Fish Cove

Flying Fish Cove began as a sort of ‘co-op’ between local farmers in the region building a state-of-the-art winery to produce its wine. Soon after, they again pooled their resources, taking the finest fruit to produce regional wine at its very best – and so Flying Fish Cove was born.

Flying Fish chardonnay 2014 ($22)

A creamy fruit-driven young Margaret River chardonnay made for drinking over the next year. Light stone fruit and subtle roasted cashew characters. A little oak weaves into the mix. Balanced and flavoursome on a light body makes for a delightful summer drink.
SCORE 89/100 CELLAR 3 Years

Flying Fish Reserve chardonnay 2014 ($40)

Opens with a lightly toasty aroma showing a hint of mandarin and orange marmalade. There’s a lift of light nutty oak in there too. The palate is textured with excellent mouthfeel to highlight the lovely fruit characters. Crisp and fine through to a long finish. Will be good over the next few years.
SCORE 91/100 CELLAR 5 years

Flying Fish cabernet merlot 2014 ($22)

Well-crafted cab merlot offering quality drinking at a good price. Plummy dark chocolate and blackcurrant stake their claims on a lush fruity palate. Ripe firmish tannins and a dollop of oak provides some necessary structure and control. Works for me in the short term.
SCORE 89/100 CELLAR 4 years

Flying Fish sauvignon blanc semillon 2016 ($22)

Fresh crunchy and loaded with a bowlful of tropical fruits. A splash of passionfruit pulp and plenty of lemon zest and there you have it – great current drinking for a classic blend.
SCORE 88/100 CELLAR 2 years

Flying Fish The Wildberry Reserve cabernet sauvignon 2014 ($40)

Expertly crafted cabernet here. Leafy tobacco characters with an edge of black olive on the nose. The flavours of blackcurrant and dark chocolate build through the palate with a firm tannin and oak core driving through to a finish that punches long.
SCORE 92/100 CELLAR 10 years
