Tahbilk 2008 Riesling

Type:

White wine
Surprised me. I'm generally not a fan of Victorian riesling (without a recommendation I tend not to try them, I've been hurt too many times), but this one is great value and extremely drinkable.

2007 Mandala Chardonnay

Type:

White wine
This Yarra Valley chardonnay has hints of citrus and melon, and a touch of oak. Not the big honey, butter, oak variety of chardonnay from others in the area; but with enough substance to make the purchase worthwhile.

Petaluma 2005 Chardonnay - Piccadilly Valley

Type:

White wine
Peach, nectarine and stone fruit on the mid palate, but a fresher nose hinting towards underlying complexity. Long dry finish with plenty of stick, but not overpowering by any means. Well integrated oak leaves you wanting another glass. Great wine, surprisingly good value.

Warrenmang 2004 Estate Shiraz

Type:

Red Wine
Something for when you get tired of Barossa and Heathcote, this is a big Shiraz for big Shiraz lovers. Plenty of dark fruit flavours, hints of chocolate and a long dry finish. Enjoy with a good cut of beef.
