It’s been a while since I’ve written one of these posts, so you’ll forgive me for being a bit rusty. For various reasons the last time I got out of Melbourne was way back at the beginning of May. It certainly was lovely to get back to regional Victoria, particularly to do what I actually started this blog for; visit wineries. Thankfully there are no shortage of wine regions within an hour of the city, and Macedon was at the top of my list. As the coolest region for viticulture (currently) in Australia, I was very interested to catch up with a number of producers to explore some elegant wines. I had only visited the Macedon Ranges once before, many years ago, and had visited Hanging Rock Winery.

Quite intense robust, a little tight and reductive, good juicy red fruit. Robust red cherry strawberry, good length, done bright cherry tomato, some savoury texture too.
Pure flinty round ripe citrus notes. Dense concentrated quite earthy rich yeasty texture, fairly savoury but light restrained.
Riper rubenesque cheesy tight focused. Round generous not heavy or fat but broad.
Pinot Noir 2012
An interesting spice cardamon clove turmeric herb note, tight dark fruits. In character somewhere between syrah and pinot noir. Very light and bright.
Lean tight bright. A touch underripe. Region not right for the variety/style in my humble opinion.
