Tawse – 11/11/2011

Robyn’s Block Chardonnay 2009
Very delicate nose, slight celeriac apple cinnamon. Insanely well balanced and complex, lacks depth somewhat, subtle oak and lees notes.

Sketchs Riesling 2009
Nice mineral kerosene, very concentrated rich and zesty style. Lime zest and peach.

Pinot Noir 2009
A little sour, not enough fruit. Too dry and bland.

Barrel-aged Iced Chardonnay 2008
Rich viscous, volume and caramel.

Iced Riesling 2009
Quince paste, sharp and yet rich.

Hidden Bench – 11/11/2011

Felsock Vineyard Riesling 2008
Concentrated bright fruit, bold fruit profile and good lines.

Tete de Cuvee Chardonnay 2008
Very bold bright peach and lime fruit, with a complex floral and pear nose. The palate is very rich and layered, yet quite light and clean. Citrus complexity and balance would be even better with food.

Locust Lane Pinot Noir 2008
Dark cherry and game notes combine to create a very savoury fruit nose. Subtle yet opulent and rich, silky and soft. Hits an amazing sweet spot between fruit and savoury elements rarely achieved in new world pinot noir, but very youthful.
