Karriview Vineyard by Paul Nelson Wines chardonnay 2015 ($62)

Paul Nelson is doing some terrific things with this established vineyard. It has always produced great fruit and in some years terrific wines. This is a beautifully refined and elegant chardonnay that captures the cool climes of the region perfectly. Minerally with a savoury thread. Neat oak treatment allows the fruit to express itself brilliantly. Promising stuff here.
SCORE 95/100 CELLAR 8 years

Karriview Vineyard by Paul Nelson Wines pinot noir 2015 ($62)

Best of the West 2017 – Pinot noir
What a gorgeous pinot noir this is. Lifted and quite beautifully fragrant violet and cherry notes on the nose. The palate is medium to light bodied but it has poise and structured presentation with firmish chalky tannins, fine grained oak and silky smooth fruit. Outstanding release from a guy we are going to hear a lot more from.
SCORE 96/100 CELLAR 10 years
