Wine Notes

 

WINE: 2012 kooyong pinot noir 375ml ~ 22,5

STYLE: medium bodied, 13.5%

TASTE: Deep crimson, bright; a dark and sultry bouquet of black cherry, liqueur soaked plums, Asian spices and a gentle lick of toasty oak; the palate is fleshy, fresh and focused on entry, with a fine line of acidity and tightly wound tannins providing length to the generous depth of fruit on offer – 94 points (James Halliday)

THE LITTLE WINE ROOM PAIRING: Pan roasted duck breast with puy lentils.

~

WINE: 2015 yangarra old vine grenache 375ml ~ 20

STYLE: Medium Bodied 13%

TASTE: perfectly ripe raspberries and red currants, patchouli and subtle Middle Eastern spices. The palate is tightly wound, with raspberry-like acidity, more pronounced tannins in the background.

THE LITTLE WINE ROOM PAIRING: Fire roasted chicken with grilled eggplant salad and saffron yoghurt.

~

WINE: 2010 collector ‘marked tree red’ shiraz 375ml ~ 18

STYLE: medium bodied, 13.2%

TASTE: The beauty of cool climate and medium bodied wine is on show here. Aromatic and full of texture all wrapped in ripe fruit. Olives, cocoa, sap and brown spice. It has ripeness even in this cooler spectrum but doesn’t show underipe greenness or aggression.

THE LITTLE WINE ROOM PAIRING: Pulled pork tacos with avocado, mango & corn salsa

~

WINE: 2010 cullen cabernet merlot 375ml ~ 28

~

WINE: 2015 Rocca di Montegrossi Chianti Classico 375ml ~ 25

STYLE: Medium Bodied 13.5%

~

WINE: 2014 shaw + smith shiraz 375ml ~ 24

STYLE: Full bodied, 14%

TASTE: Deep colour, vibrant hue; deep and compelling levels of ripe black fruits, savoury spices and well handled toasty oak; the palate is unctuous and silky, with black and red fruits combining with silky fine-grained tannins expanding across the palate with true grace and harmony; long and luscious (96 – James Halliday)

THE LITTLE WINE ROOM PAIRING: Swordfish with quinoa, pomegranate & mint.
