MyattsField Blanc de Noirs 2012 ($30)

Shows the versatility of the Carmel Valley in the Perth Hills as the pinot noir was sourced from there. Made traditionally and then given extended time on lees, it has picked up some neat meaty characters with a trace of savoury biscuit. Textured with a complete and consistent mouthfeel. Very attractive sparkling wine.
SCORE 91/100 CELLAR 5 Years

MyattsField semillon 2015 ($20)

Ah, it’s good to see someone doing some straight semillon. This works so well with the barrel fermentation in new French oak; does great things with the lively intense semillon fruit. Lemony with a developing nutty creaminess. The citrus cut is the key to holding the tight palate line to the finish. Love to see this in a few years. Excellent.

MyattsField chardonnay 2014 ($24)

This is sourced from Manjimup, giving the guys at MyattsField an interesting alternative to their traditional fruit sourcing in the Perth Hills. Has a nice mix of peach and lemon scents on the nose with a creamy roasted nuts influence. Nice minerally spicy palate with a hint of citrusy grapefruit. Long and persistent. Impressive wine.

MyattsField mourvedre 2014 ($26)

You just have to get your teeth into this excellent example of this famous Spanish variety. It comes from the Carmel Valley, which appears well suited to the variety. Medium weight with earthy red fruit laced with some attractive spices. The oak and tannin provide a seamless silky texture. Really beautiful drinking with that dry finish ideal for food partnering.

MyattsField Dudley durif 2015 ($30)

Durif is a most distinctive variety that can make some mighty alcoholic wines. This has a reasonable amount but it’s delivered beautifully with so much fruit intensity and fleshy opulence that it never intrudes. Rich deep fruit flavours with loads of dark chocolate and plummy brambly blackcurrant. Firm and slightly assertive tannins and a lick of oak hold the palate.
