New tasting notes
This month I’ve uploaded the largest bunch of tasting notes ever, with around 800 reviews.
These include about 300 wines from the 2013 Tasmanian Wine Show, a tasting of 130 New Zealand wines from the Wairarapa (Martinborough, Gladstone and Masterton), and a large number of imported wines from my travels in France as well as tastings in Australia.
There’s also some sparkling and Champagne and quite a lot of ‘alternative varieties’ – such as pinot gris, viognier, verdelho, gruner veltliner, vermentino, marsanne, savagnin and gewürztraminer.
And a complete Curly Flat chardonnay (tasting notes) and pinot vertical (tasting notes), back to 1998. And don’t miss the latest Bass Phillip releases (tasting notes), in which the magical 2010 vintage is the star. Tops is the 2010 Reserve Pinot Noir (97 points; $539; tasting notes).
And a teaser for next month: a complete vertical tasting of Henschke Hill of Grace back to 1958.
