Grace Farm sauvignon blanc semillon 2015 ($21)

Beautiful balance for these varieties from one of the best small producers in Margaret River. Passionfruit and other tropical notes with a lovely creaminess. There’s a dab of French oak in here adding to the texture and palate complexity. Simply superb drinking over the next couple of years.
SCORE 94/100 CELLAR 3 Years

Grace Farm chardonnay 2015 ($30)

An exquisitely presented chardonnay from this wonderful small producer. The nose has a lovely subtlety about it with a smoky background to the brioche and light stone fruit. The palate is delicate and beautifully crafted with a neat integration of fine French oak and medium-weight fruit. Some wild yeast influence is evident in both texture and complexity. Step forward for Grace Farm for this variety.
SCORE 94/100 CELLAR 6 years

Grace Farm cabernet sauvignon 2014 ($30)

Such varietal purity of cabernet. Black olive and blackcurrant aromas with a little chocolaty cedary oak influence. It’s a firm statement of the variety with a tight hold of tannin and oak creating a structure built for cellaring, yet allowing the sweet fruit to exhibit its best qualities.
SCORE 94/100 CELLAR 10 years

Grace Farm Reserve cabernet sauvignon 2013 ($50)

This is just so varietal, perfect for cabernet sauvignon. The bouquet of leafy black olive, cigar box and blackcurrant is classically varietal. The palate is concentrated and powerful, yet also so elegant and stylish. The oak and tannin combo is perfectly weighted and applied. Great wine and the best yet from this emerging producer.
SCORE 97/100 CELLAR 15 years
