RAY JORDAN WINE GUIDE 2016
Ferguson Hart Estate The Van Leeuwen Block chardonnay 2014 ($32)
This excellent wine continues the recent run of form for this small Ferguson Valley producer. This one is quite tight and delicately poised but with excellent fruit intensity
through its middle palate to a long finish. Has a creamy stone fruit character with some nice savoury edges.
SCORE 91/100 CELLAR 5 years
Ferguson Hart Estate shiraz 2014 ($25)
Packs tonnes of fruit into its medium to full-bodied frame. Cherry and plum aromas with some spicy vanillin oak nuances. The palate is soft and supple with fleshy fruit, firmish chalky tannins and spicy oak. Stacks up mighty well especially at this price. With a bit of time will be a very tidy wine.
SCORE 89/100 CELLAR 6 years
