1 x Brokenwood Vineyard Pinot Noir 2020 ~ TAS , Australia

95/100 - Nick's Wine Merchants
90/100 Decanter (2017 vintage)
James Halliday 5 Star Winery

A unique wine produced on the island of Tasmania after the bushfires damaged the main vineyards of Beechworth.

Winemaker "A terrific year for Pinot Noir and it shows in every aspect of this wine made in the island home of Australia's best pinot noir, Tasmania. A pinot noir of unrestrained pleasure."

Nick's Wine Merchants "This wine is normally produced from Brokenwood’s Indigo vineyard located in Beechworth, however, the bushfires of 2020 meant that the fruit was smoke tainted and nothing could be picked. Fortunately, Brokenwood was able to source parcels of fruit from premium growers in Tasmania. Twenty five percent whole bunch fruit was included in the ferment with maturation taking place in French oak barriques for a period of 10 months.
Semi translucent bright dark red colour with black tinged edges and a light crimson hue. A fragrant mix of violets, sour to red cherries and winter strawberries mesh with forest floor, dried herb and spicy cedar notes. Light but powerful and highly moreish, the palate is filled with ripe red cherry and strawberry fruits which are cast against a back drop of fresh herb infusions, forest floor and spicy cedar. Very polished in its feel with a super fine tannin structure it finishes fresh with a long, savoury aftertaste.
Drink over the next 5-6 years.
Alc. 13%”

Decanter "Pleasantly herbal berry fruit quality with a hint of spice. Intense and full flavoured with some savoury in the background.
Drinking Window 2019 - 2023”

James Halliday "Cold soak and 10% whole bunch fermentation was followed by 12 months in predominantly used French barriques. The wine is savoury and assertive, varietal fruit yet to take front stage. The vintage was hot, fast and furious, and I hope time will knit the flavours into a coherent whole.”

The Real Review, Toni Patterson "A well-made, gentle, succulent pinot noir. Ripe berry fruit, good depth of flavour and gentle background savouriness. I enjoy the integrity of the varietal expression. Decanting is not essential; however, it will uncover more layers in the wine. Easy to enjoy." (2016 vintage)

Australian Wine Companion "Brokenwood consistently produces excellent wines. Its big-selling Hunter Semillon provides the volume to balance the limited quantities of the flagships ILR Semillon and Graveyard Shiraz. Brokenwood purchased the Graveyard Vineyard from Hungerford Hill in 1978 and has fully rehabilitated the vineyard in a vine-by-vine exercise. There is also a range of wines coming from regions including Beechworth (a major resource is the Indigo Vineyard), Orange, Central Ranges, McLaren Vale, Cowra and elsewhere. In 2017 Iain Riggs celebrated his 35th vintage at the helm of Brokenwood, offering a unique mix of winemaking skills, management of a diverse business and an unerring ability to keep Brokenwood’s high profile fresh and newsworthy. He also contributed a great deal to various wine industry organisations

1 x Langlet Brut Grande Réserve Champagne - Champagne, France

Sommeliers International "...delicate, fine, aromatic, a touch of fruit compote. Fresh. Palate; generous. Maturity; freshness in the finish."

Dirk Schram "The entire Maison Langlet philosophy is reflected in this champagne. Light golden yellow in colour with an even, fine bubble. Flowers and exotic scents predominate in the aroma. In terms of taste, great aromatic finesse and a hint of citrus fruits follow. This is the perfect cuvée for an aperitif!"

The Winemaker “A pale gold colour with tiny, regular bubbles. Floral and exotic notes stand out in the aroma. The taste offers a wonderful aromatic finesse and a final zest of citrus. The perfect cuvée for an aperitif!”

45% Pinot Noir, 35% Chardonnay; 20% Pinot Meunierx

Sommeliers International "...on many fine tables in Paris.

Gold Medal Wine Club "...from France’s esteemed Champagne Langlet, a progressive and ultra-modern new Champagne house located in the village of Gland on the right bank of France’s Marne Valley."

Sommeiliers International "The Langlet Champagnes are an original adventure, that of three friends, native from wine grower families of Champagne. You have Vincent Métivier, the man in the vineyard....who continuously studies his land, not yet organically farmed but with a permanent concern for nature (integrated farming, limited treatments, grass cover between the rows …); Luc Chaudon who runs a trade house whose vineyard in the Moutain of Reims mainly consist of Grand Crus and First Crus; and Frédéric Papelard, ambassador of the brand, to who we owe to find Champagne Langlet on many fine tables in Paris. “Moreish, natural, terroir driven wines…Today I supply some 400 restaurants in Paris." The range comprises 7 cuvées .... from the house’s Brut with its notes of plum and wild cherry to the Extra Brut aged in oak barrels “with aromas of roasted pine nuts and lavender honey in the finish, to be served over “an oven-baked lamb loin with rosemary” according to Best Sommelier of the World Gerard Basset."

Les Cave Des Guards "Champagne Langlet is a resolutely modern product. It is first and foremost the story of a meeting. That of Vincent Metiver, a winegrower who, between Château-Thierry and Épernay, has set up his press in the middle of the chalky plots of the vines that make up Champagne Langlet. A man who certainly learned from his elders the precise accomplishment of each stage of wine making. But who has also been able to develop the practice with “just what is needed” to protect champagne from solid organoleptic qualities, without altering the soil, the plant, or the fruit and even less the quality of the product. A product which is ultimately judiciously reasoned, harmoniously structured and originally defined. That of Luc Chaudron, an owner whose vineyard located on the Montagne de Reims consists mainly of Grand Crus and Premiers Crus. Luc is the one who oversees production including the bottles engraved with the names of the clients, decorated by renowned artists for limited editions. All champagnes are treated with a precision that makes the singular Langlet cuvées exceptional products. And then Frederic Papelard. This alliance required an esthete, plenipotentiary emissary of this new Champagne. Ambassador of the brand, with a friendly and generous openness, he brings Champagne Langlet to the sanction of the connoisseur market.

James Halliday 5 Star Winery

The Wine Front "Very Nice Chardonnay....Refreshing for sure. Good detail.... It does struck match and flint, it does citrus and green apple, some spicy oak there, it does a slightly rubbery tightness and a milky haze in texture through glass shard cuts. It’s a wine that feels primped and preened into its style of racy, leaner, taut, rather than reflecting inherent fruit character, but in that way hits its markers and will delight an audience of appreciative drinkers...."

Jane Faulkner, Halliday Wine Companion "No single-block wines this vintage, with all fruit allocated to the single-vineyard wines across the range. This has morphed into a more savoury wine with almost a complete absence of fruit flavours, except for a flutter of citrus. It has the sulphide stamp, the restraint yet even tighter with acidity leading. A hint of beeswax, just the finest creamy leesy flavour....don't chill it down too much."

The Real Review "palate is restrained, lean and high-tensioned. Enjoy with food."

The Winemaker "Defined by its fresh, citrus blossom aromatic lift and precise long, lingering finish. Characteristic pure and intense aroma. The palate is poised and complex, with layered fruit flavours. Tightly wound together with a precise minerality, the wine has beautiful line and length."

Australian Gourmet Traveller Wine Magazine “Elegant and beautifully balanced.....Opens with spicy cracked black pepper and bright notes of freshly picked blackberries. Plush and open with lovely freshness and vibrancy offering attractive fruit purity and peppery complexity....combines black cherry aromas with oak spices and a subtle touch of whole-bunch fragrance. There’s supple flesh on the palate with plenty of balanced tannin.” (2018 vintage)

The Winemaker "A perfumed and spicy Syrah, medium-bodied in style. The palate is concentrated and silky, with finely structured tannins, bright fruit characters, wonderful elegance and depth. Aged for 11 months in French oak. Stored carefully, this wine will age gracefully for ten years. " (2018 vintage)

Australian Wine Companion "This is another fantastic release under this label. Garden herbs, nuts, twigs and spice notes blend seamlessly with red and black cherries, licorice and wood smoke. Flamboyance is its middle name, but it has the discipline to make the most of it." (2017 vintage)

Yabby Lake Vineyard was established by the Kirby family in 1998 and over the past decade, Yabby Lake has built a reputation for single-vineyard Mornington Peninsula Chardonnay and Pinot Noir of great purity and character.

James Halliday "This high-profile wine business was established by Robert and Mem Kirby (of Village Roadshow), who had been landowners in the Mornington Peninsula for decades. In 1998 they established Yabby Lake Vineyard, under the direction of vineyard manager Keith Harris; the vineyard is on a north-facing slope, capturing maximum sunshine while also receiving sea breezes. The main focus is the 25ha of pinot noir, 14ha of chardonnay and 8ha of pinot gris; 3h of shiraz, merlot and sauvignon blanc take a back seat. The arrival of the hugely talented Tom Carson as Group Winemaker has added lustre to the winery and its wines, making the first Jimmy Watson Trophy-winning Pinot Noir in 2014, and continuing to blitz the Australian wine show circuit with Single Block Pinots."
