[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] Charismatic expression here, full of detail and drinkability. Scents of faint pear, mixed minerals, light honeyed toast, fresh and dried apple and citrus. Beautiful. Has a succulence in the palate, light chew, beautiful carriage of flavour and a long trail of minerally flavours follow the pear, faint nuttiness and appley things. Beautiful thing this.

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] Cute name. Late harvest pinot gris. It tastes of apricot and orange marmalade, has very good intensity, is slippery in mouthfeel terms and through the mid-palate at least it’s pretty impressive. It’s certainly delicious. More than a curio. Rated : 90 Points Tasted : Mar19 Alcohol : 14% Price : $33, 375ml Closure : Screwcap Drink : 2019 – 2023 Campbell Mattinson[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] 50% whole bunches. 20 days on skins. Matured in old oak. It’s not unique but it’s not the norm for Mornington Peninsula pinot gris/grigio. Beautiful colour for starters. Deep russet-amber-crimson. Richly autumnal. It all goes from there. Flint, woodsmoke, graphite, potato skins, scorched dry pears, spice notes and no doubt more. Excellent intensity and the length to match. Skin-sy and stalky. A treat in its style.

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]5% new oak and terrific to drink. As fresh and it is silken, as seamless as it is delicious. If you drink this immediately you’re missing out on nothing, such is its polished drinkability, but it has both complexity and structure on its side too and so should mature well into at least the medium term. Bravo. Price and quality are spot on. Rated : 93 Points Tasted : Mar19 Alcohol : 13.5% Price : $32 Closure : Screwcap Drink : 2019 - 2025 Campbell Mattinson[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] Scorpo’s wines are always impressive but this new release is particularly so. I don’t have details on the density of the planting but it saw 10% whole bunches and 20% new oak. It was all fermented wild. More importantly, it tastes sensational. The word stunning comes straight to mind. This is a measured, moderate wine and yet it has power. It tastes of black cherries and chicory, sweet raspberry, savoury/woodsy herbs, dark chocolate and cedarwood. It carries a fair clip of oak but both the fruit and the tannin have such force to them; the flavours stride through the palate as if on a mission. It’s a striking wine,

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]This is essentially the ‘Estate’ release, and is something of a flagbearer chardonnay in the range as a result. Juicy. Long. Pristine. Fennel-infused. Pear-riven. All those things. It’s a lively, lifted, stylish chardonnay with bright barley-accented fruit, wheaty tones and a bit of crunch to its acidity. It’s just beginning to spread it wings.
