Pertaringa – 11/04/2013

Fiano 2012 Adelaide hills
Nice bright floral fresh citrus aromas. Clean and slightly oily. Balanced fresh light but expressive, quite fruity with hints of salty texture.

Dolcetto 2012 Langhorne Creek
Quite intense floral rosemary red fruit basil. Sweet ripe fruit, new world expression, still good acids and freshness with late savoury notes.

Tempranillo 2011 Adelaide
Earthy savoury dusty, a little closed but lots of fruit expression. Soft and mellow, full and rich but kind of bland. Some nice savoury notes though.

Graciano 2010 Langhorne Creek
Deep and dark, a little dusty and earthy, concentrated spice. Very bright and fresh on the palate, clean fruit expression, a little bit safe.

Aglianico 2011 McLaren Vale
Very vibrant aromatics, fruit and florals, sharp and fairly spicy. Reasonably tight and intense, good structure, adequate fruit ripeness. Sharp and tight acids.

Primitivo 2010 Langhorne Creek
Bright exuberant blackberry spice notes. Very juby sweet dark fruits, structure but a little flabby and unfocused.

Lagrein 2010 Limestone Coast
Dark and soft, fairly quiet. Full sweet fruits, broad and missing the freshness that the variety can offer.
