Penfolds has released another wine that seems destined to stop collectors in their tracks and reach for their chequebooks.
Ata Rangi is one of my favourite pinot noir makers. I taste and buy their iconic, age-worthy pinot noir at every opportunity.
The Penfolds Collection wines for 2017 have been released and with them, the 2013 vintage of the flagship, Grange.
Two top-scoring wines at reassuringly expensive prices appeared on my tasting bench recently.
The 2017 vintage is an excellent riesling vintage, going on the evidence of my tastings.
A vertical tasting of five vintages of Trinity Hill Syrah offered the chance to check the progress of four vintages and taste the latest release from 2015 for the first time.
I recently posted 20 tasting notes for Felton Road wines and five more for South Island producer, Ostler.
I recently tasted 60 examples of New Zealand pinot gris and have to say that the standard has risen markedly in the past few years.
Ashley Ratcliff is an innovative grapegrower in the South Australian Riverland and an active promoter of the region.
Three noteworthy South Island pinot noirs from the 2015 vintage deserve a mention.
