Ironwood 2013 Riesling
From Gene and Mary Harma’s lovely little winery on the Porongurup Road, comes this excellent expression of Great Southern Riesling. Pale straw in colour, this wine has an aromatic nose, floral and underpinned by lifted citrus notes. A fresh, lime juice filled palate, with fine acidity, leads on to a long, crisp and satisfying finish. (94)
Fairbrossen 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon
Fairbrossen in the Carmel Valley produces this one from Margaret River fruit. It has concentrated plum and blackcurrant aromas, with a hint of mint. On the palate, chocolate and plum flavours are supported by smooth tannins, and good use of oak. It should cellar well in the medium term. (92)
Plume Estate 2012 Sparkling
Made from Pinot Noir grapes grown on the property, this straw hued wine has lemon and lime aromas on the nose, with an underlying note of yeast. The palate is lively, full of green apple and grapefruit flavours and with a crisp and dry finish. (90).
