A big, spicy and oak influenced cuvee that has been well made, but right now is just too tannic to be enjoyable. There’s plenty of red berry fruit and freshness, so with luck this will emerge a little from behind Read more
Sadly a bit smothered in new oak, with butter and cinnamon notes crowding out the fruit on the nose and the palate. There’s a nice lift and freshness, and delicate saltiness on the finish – a potentially very good wine, Read more
A radically different expression of Roter Veltliner than those of Leth or Josef Fritz, this has biting citrus acids and honeyed notes, and relatively lean fruit. It’s persistent on the finish, with a charming, refined fruit core. Tightly wound , Read more
Peppery and citrus, this is a taut, lively effort with citrus essential oils and pepper. Concentrated, yet really tight and focused on the palate, it’s a style that may need yet more bottle age to really show at its best.

A little sulky and closed on the nose, also rather unexpressive on the palate. A hint of white pepper leads into a bit of capsicum, and a dry, almost harsh finish. Unlovely at the moment, it will be interesting to Read more
Quite aromatic and peachy on the nose, with an exotic and expressive character to the fruit (some guava and ripe mango notes). Well defined, pin-sharp acids that provide great balance here. A fruit-forward, pure & elegant style.
