The Panel’s Pick 6-pack features superb wines the Panel judged amongst the finest quality they have ‘blind’ tasted in the last three months. From Sparkling to Muscat and red and white favourites, it’s a smorgasbord of delicious spring flavours.
Best’s Great Western Cabernet Sauvignon 2010: Red and black fruit and beetroot aromas with a hint of mint introduce a balanced, velvety palate with a core of curranty fruit and ripe tannins.
The Grapes of Ross Ruby Tuesday Rosé 2011: This pink coloured Rosé has a ripe raspberry aromatic lift. Mouth-watering yet savoury with a good core of ripe, red fruits and refreshing length.
Hirsch Hill Estate Chardonnay 2010: This beautiful example of Yarra Valley Chardonnay has intense fig, melon and peach aromas leading to a lithe, silken and refined palate showing pure, elegant melon and fig harmony and textural cashew.
Jr. Jones Pinot Grigio 2011: Pale, light bronze in colour with lifted savoury ripe pear aromas. The crisp, savoury palate has a juicy core of ripe pear and a hint of apricot with mouth-watering persistence.
Punt Road Sparkling Chardonnay Pinot Noir NV: A dusty, slightly funky nose with a leesy complexity introduces a tight core of citrus and apple with nutty, funky background notes.
St Leonards 375ml Classic Muscat NV: Deep tawny with a hint of olive, it has lifted Muscaty aromas with raisins and dark caramel. Sweet and slightly caramelised with good varietal Muscat flavours, clean spirit lift and balancing acid freshness.
