Evenfall Tasmania Chardonnay 2022 scores 91 points from Tyson Stelzer. “A juicy and fruity Chardonnay of white peach, white nectarine, fig and hints of tropical fruits, softly tensioned by the citrus tang of Tasmanian acidity, which lends subtle minerality to the finish. A refreshing young Chardonnay ready for immediate drinking.” $48. @evenfallwines #Tasmania #Chardonnay #refreshing
Turkey Flat Vineyards Barossa Valley Mataro 2022 scores 95 points from Mike Bennie in WBM. “A bold and yet savoury Mataro that doesn’t shy away from concentration of raspberry, cranberry and blackcurrant fruit characters, yet delivers dried rose petal, turned earth, game meat and woody spices alongside. Lots to sink one’s teeth into but at the same time finding ribbons of pleasing granular tannin to temper things and draw out the wine long. Character filled red wine. Very good.” $40. @turkeyflat #BarossaValley #Mataro #wine ❤️
Lowestoft Tasmania La Meilleure Chardonnay 2021 scores 95 points from Tyson Stelzer. “Tasmanian Chardonnay of distinction and grandeur thanks to the advantage of agility in both sourcing and production techniques, drawing on the best regions across the state and the best of winemaking dexterity. The result delivers complexity and concentration yet succeeds in delivering the tricky balance of combining this with understated restraint, structural tension and enduring promise.“ $100. @lowestoft.tasmania  #distinction #grandeur #complexity #balance #wine #Tasmania ❤️
Soumah Hexham Vineyard Yarra Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2021 scores 93 points from Mike Bennie. “An elegant and reserved Cabernet imbued with blueberry, mulberry fruit characters wrapped up in choc-mint, alpine herbs, cedar and clove woody spices. All of this tied up in strings of lacy, emery board tannins. It feels mouth-puckering and satisfying with each sip, and delivers the understated Yarra Cabernet quintessence well. Feels apt for longer term cellaring too.” $40. @soumahwines #elegant #reserved #understated #wine #YarraValley
