2013 Prosecco Base Wine
Crisp and fresh but plenty of vibrant fruit. Needs a touch more bitey acid.
2013 Malvasia Istriana
Lovely bright sharp citrus pineapple guava. Freshness and texture, mouth filling and food-friendly.
2013 Pinot Bianco
A touch closed at the moment. Depth and weight, certainly not shy.
Looking a little reductive at the moment. But good structure.
Much more complete textural full wine.
Crunchy toast and marmalade.
Nice bitey tang, lots of quince, great with food.
2013 Rosé Sangiovese
Nice bright red fruits and raspberry. Nice and sharp and fresh
2013 Mudgee Clone Sangiovese
Fresh light balanced long and pretty.
2013 De Marchi Clone Sangiovese
Tighter and straighter.
2013 Grosso Brunello Clone
2013 Nebbiolo (little barbera)
Good wine, but far from classic of the variety.
2013 Nebbiolo (new clones)
Very tight bright and lifted. Linear and precise, lacking flesh.
Lifted floral structured finesse.
2013 Syrah Viognier
Sweet dark fruit fine long and elegant. Unrepentantly hands-off and simple approach.
Slighter bead but finer, linear precise refined style. Not friendly punter style, brisk and lean. More interesting.
A little shy and thin at the moment. Perhaps the vintage. Good freshness but a bit lacking. Very late savoury almond notes.
More lifted aromatics, floral but also mineralic. More depth and expression, ripeness and concentration. Taken to its logical conclusion.
Intensity life but very fresh and lithe. Pinpoint accuracy, a very different expression.
Lovely colour. Depth life and plenty of flavour but dry, fresh and a bit savoury. Just a hint of sweetness at the end.
Darker plummier cherry fruit. Soft unctuous and just a hint if fruit sweetness, still very fine and fresh.
Tight sweet dark fruit. Structure and depth, great tannins. Very young IMHO.
Purity elegance ethereal, lifted delicate expressive assured.
