Penfolds-Yattarna-Chardonnay-1999-750mL

Producer: Penfolds
SKU: 480
Delivery date: Dispatch within 1-3 day's

Complex and tightly structured, with intense lime and grapefruit on the front palate, which slowly changes into a mixture of citrus and pear. Finely chiseled acidity, cedary oak and lees yeastiness give excellent depth and graciously offset the richly textured underlying fruit. Finely interwoven and seamlessly presented, this is a standout Chardonnay of impeccable pedigree with an extended, elegant finish.

Wine Spectator
Ripe and silky, a gorgeous Chardonnay of subtlety and grace, offering pretty pear, cream and floral aromas and flavors, finishing with richness and a delicate twang of acidity to keep things in balance.

88/100
Wine Companion
When first tasted in June 2002, the wine was superb, wonderfully youthful and promising to live for many years. When tasted by seven judges in the March 2003 Divine State of Origin Challenge, the points ranged between 16.5 and 17.5 out of 20 - in other words, very consistently at high bronze to silver medal, looking full, peachy and slightly old-fashioned. Seven judges can't be wrong; the only possible culprit is random oxidation.

d'Arenberg-The Coppermine Road-Cabernet Sauvignon-2002-750mL

The nose shows intense blackcurrant and cranberry fruit, and the subtle cedary cinnamon spice, barrel-ferment and oak derived aromas, violet and mint scents, as well as liquorice and chocolate smells. Interwined is this wounderful green edge that lifts the wine into a cool climate sepctrum which typifies the cold year. These aromas combine with some cassis, blueberry, and cranberry, with lingering mocha and plumy fruit and are just showing through amongst a long, intense vibrant, gritty fruit tannin finish.

Torbreck-The Steading-Grenache Shiraz Mataro-2003-750mL

Since Torbreck’s first release The Steading has been a favourite wine because of the old magnificent vines that produce its core.

The melding of the three traditional Barossa varieties creates a tremendously complex a nd rewarding wine. The Grenache and Mataro are from old bush vines that are pruned in the traditional ‘goblet’ style to a limited number of buds, reducing yields and promoting flavour and colour concentration. Only the free run component of the Shiraz is used in the blend to allow the Grenache identity to shine through.

 

'On a highland farm the collection of barns, stables and outbuildings is known as a steading. The varieties Grenache, Mataro and Shiraz all stand in their own right. However, in blending, their strengths create a complex wine of solid earthy structure.'

 

Vinification: Single vineyard components are fermented and were then matured in seasoned French and American oak barrels for 22 months. These parcels are later blended prior to bottling.
