- Pewsey Vale Riesling 2013 Product #27969 (In Stock)
Yet another outstanding release of what has become the benchmark dry (bone dry, actually!) Riesling from Australia's Eden Valley. Lemon peel, tangerine, lime and green apple aromas lead to a round, focused, mouthful of bright citrus, apple, and chalk dust flavors. Mouthwatering and a touch nervy on the brisk finish but certainly not austere. It's going to be another 90+ year once the critics catch up!
- Fowles Ladies Who Shoot Their Lunch Shiraz 2009 Product #28052 (In Stock)
It's been a while since we got this excited by Shiraz. From Australia's coolest growing region, this delivers plenty of New World fruit in a sophisticated, food-friendly, frame. Really, really, good.
"The 2008 Ladies who Shoot their Lunch Shiraz gives a very deep garnet garnet-purple color with pronounced aromas of blackberry, blueberry and licorice plus subtle notes of mocha, cinnamon and cardamom. Rich and full, this Shiraz is nicely balanced by crisp acid and a medium level of grainy tannins. Drink it now to 2018+."Wine Advocate 91 points
"This cool-climate Shiraz opens with a range of ripe dark berry and cherry flavors, shaded with smoky, minerally overtones that balance against pinpoint acidity and mingle nicely through the generous, focused finish."Wine Spectator 91 points
