Winery Tasting Notes
Adelaide Winemakers `Landcross` Shiraz 2014:A fresh, bright wine deep garnet in colour with a purple tint. Lifted spices lead into red fruits and berries on the nose, with a fruit driven but complex palate. This wine is drinking well and will continue to do so for years to come.
Mt. Langi Ghiran `The Gateway` Shiraz 2013: Blackberries and red cherry notes, with perfumed spices of cinnamon and cloves. Boysenberry, mulberry and blackberry fruits form the vibrant core of this wine. Delicate notes of spices are complimented with powdery, cocoa like tannins, creating a luscious wine with amazing balance and length.
Cathcart Ridge Estate `Reserve` Shiraz 2008: The vintage has resulted in a powerful, full flavoured wine with deep colour. Typical Shiraz varietal aroma and generous palate with robust body and drying tannins.
Adelaide Winemakers `Landcross` Sauvignon Blanc 2015: An aromatic style with tropical fruit and light herbal note with a green apple edge. Medium palate weight with bright green fruits and a citric, lime juice nuance. Subtle texture on the palate adds a deliciousness.
Ten Sisters `Single Vineyard` Sauvignon Blanc 2014:Ten Sisters Sauvignon Blanc has a delightfully fragrant and complex bouquet with underlying citrus aromas. The palate is crisp and lively, its elegant layers hinting of tropical fruit. The finish is long and well-balanced. The Sauvignon Blanc is given extended lees contact to create complexity, weight on the palate, and aging potential, and to bring out fruit flavours.
Wither Hills Sauvignon Blanc 2014:Distinctly Marlborough, this Sauvignon Blanc exudes vibrant ripe citrus notes, crunchy greens & hints of tropical guava on the nose. The palate is refined and elegant with superb natural fruit weight providing a juicy core of layered fruit, entwined with a salty textural acidity, vibrant citrus pith and a moreish dry chalky finish. Another remarkable Wither Hills Sauvignon Blanc.
