Winery Tasting Notes
Barwick Estates `Black Label` Cabernet Sauvignon 2014: This Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon delivers aromas of green tobacco, blackcurrant and preserved fruits.The palate has silky smooth tannins and flavours of smooth dark chocolate.
Penley Estate `Condor` Shiraz Cabernet 2013: Displays sweet berry and black cherry notes with a touch of mocha spice to the bouquet and complex vanillin oak with some smokey overtones.The palate has a young but fine tannin structure, good mid palate richness and a sweet cedar menthol finish. Bottle maturation is recommended up to 7 years, but it is hoped that it will also be enjoyed now whilst it is fresh and lively. Bottle age will add a new dimension by changing fruit and wood characters, and aid in softening tannins.
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.
Barwick Estates `5 Trees` Chardonnay 2013:Displays enticing aromas of almonds, apricots and spice.
This wine has complex mouth filling white peach and juicy fruit with a firm clean acid finish.

Barwick Estates `5 Trees` Chardonnay 2013: Has the almost airy elegance that Pemberton chardonnay often exhibits, the flavours midway between stone fruit and citrus, allowing apple and melon airplay. The length of the wine is unquestioned, but is there enough depth? Rating 90 - Drink by 2017, James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (JUN/2014).
