Platinum Wine Club Mixed

A mix of 6 scintillating slurpers, some of which can be cellared if you have the inclination and patience. We recommend drinking the First Creek and Hastwell in the near term. The remaining hooch will also be ‘tastebuddy’ now if you decant them but can also be cellared for 5+ years. The Penna Lane will improve for over a decade. First Creek’s Botanica PG is dry with a mineral edge, pear aromas and flavours. Claymore’s Riesling offers lemons and limes, great length and texture and the Turkey Flat is a textural blend of the classic Rhone white varietals of Marsanne, Rousanne and Viognier. Subtle initially, it has the balance and texture to bust out a snappy tango with a roast chook. All kinds of stone fruit going on here; kernels, fresh and roasted. There’s also ginger, cashews and a bready, almost biscuity aspect. The Hastwell Temp is right in its prime drinking window. It opens with an explosion of liquorice and coffee on the nose which lead to ripe cherries and spice on the palate. Tannins are fine and build as you drink. Drink it soon. Farmer’s Leap Shiraz is a robust and black-fruited Shiraz which is hitting its straps now at 5 years of age and still has a good few more years in it. There’s plenty of black and blue fruit, spice and cedary oak finished with fine tannins. Penna Lane’s Clare Cab is a stunning varietal Cabernet built for the long haul. An hour or two of breathing sees a beautiful perfume emerge, which coalesces with rich fruits to form a deep palate packed with violet, blackcurrant, earth and tomato leaf. Perfect with a big lump of protein.

    New South Wales
    This is textbook Pinot Grigio, dry with a mineral edge, pear aromas and flavours and even a suggestion of the graininess you find when biting into a perfectly ripe, juicy pear. There is also green apple, lime and honeysuckle in the mix. It’s excellent chilled hard and goes nicely with a range of foods, like a Vietnamese poached chicken salad, just go easy on the chilli. James Halliday rates First Creek Wines as a 5 red star producer, his highest accolade and offers the following… ‘The quality of the wines has been consistently exemplary, and there is every reason to believe this will continue in the years to come.’

    This is a stunning varietal Cabernet built for the long haul. An hour or two of breathing sees a beautiful perfume emerge, which coalesces with rich fruits to form a deep palate packed with violet, blackcurrant, earth and tomato leaf. Perfect with a big lump of protein. Drink any time over the next 15 years.
    McLaren Vale, SA
    4.5 stars Winestate, 93pts Kim Brebach
    Easy drinking meets structure and fruit intensity. This opens with an explosion of liquorice and coffee on the nose which lead the ripe cherries and spice on the palate. Tannins are fine and build as you drink. Great with pork, roasted, pork belly, puerco pibil or porky paella.

    93pts The Wine Front Magazine, 92pts James Halliday, 92pts Kim Brebach
    A delicious, textural blend which is subtle initially but has the fruit weight to bust out a snappy tango with a roast chook. All kinds of stone fruit going on here, kernels, fresh and roasted. There’s also ginger, cashews and a bready, almost biscuity aspect. A white wine to savour and sip this is lovely now and will build in weight and texture over the next 5 years.
    2 x Farmer’s Leap Shiraz 2016 (RRP $25.00)

    It’s nice to get your hands on a quality, cellared Shiraz at a decent price. This robust and black fruited Shiraz is hitting its straps now at 5 years of age and still has a good few more years in it. There’s plenty of black and blue fruit, spice and cedary oak finished with plenty of fine tannins.

    Very, very good Clare Valley Riesling is about all you need to know here. Zesty and clean, mineral and floral, lifted perfume guides you in and a balanced palate weight keeps you in.
