In Two Minds Two Pairs Reserve MRV 2022


I met Kate Day, one of the two Kates behind the In Two Minds label, on my recent trip to Mudgee. Although Mudgee based, she makes her wines interstate with her sister-in-law Katherine Day, drawing parcels of fruit from a range of regions. An excitable and passionate winemaker, she says this wine pays homage to Don Lewis who was a great mentor in her early years.

Montalto Tuerong Pinot Noir 2022


I loved this deluxe. A seriously silky and complex Tuerong Pinot Noir from Montalto. Yes, yes and yes!

Montalto Main Ridge Pinot Noir 2022


This Montalto Main Ridge 2022 is Pinot glory. Oh yeah! Can we leave the review at that?

Soumah The Butcher Thomas Hendy Cut 2021


A blend of Yarra Valley finesse and the richness of Heathcote, this Soumah Thomas Hendy cut brings together Syrah, Cabernet and Nebbiolo. Despite being an odd bunch, the blend works extremely well.

Montalto The Eleven Chardonnay 2022


I loved the Tuerong deluxe but this Eleven is not far behind. Packed with interest and drive, I'm sharing this with no one. Another excellent Chardonnay from Montalto.

Montalto Merricks Pinot Noir 2022


Depth with a flirtatious prettiness. This Montalto Merricks is an attractive and savoury-driven Pinot with some oomph.

Cool climate Cabernet getting the juices flowing. And juicy is the word. Black fruits are the hero with this Soumah release.

Burton McMahon Syme Vineyard Pinot Noir 2022


Spicier than its George's Vineyard sibling, this Syme Vineyard release from Burton McMahon is a superb Yarra Valley Pinot Noir. Give it a little more time to see it at its best as was proven over a couple of days of tasting.

Burton McMahon George's Vineyard Chardonnay 2022


The wines in the Burton McMahon range are in a sweet spot right now. A label worth following, this George's Vineyard Chardonnay is generous but impeccably weighted. Winning!

Reflecting Light White Feather Chardonnay 2022


This Reflecting Light Chardonnay from the Macedon Ranges is a beautiful love story in a bottle. Chablis-esque, it's hard not to adore its shape and presence.

Burton McMahon George's Vineyard Pinot Noir 2022


Epically silky, this is a smashing Yarra Valley Pinot Noir from two mates with supreme winemaking IP.

Soumah Hexham Vineyard Syrah 2022


Oh, I like this. The drinkability of these Soumah wines never ceases to impress. Get one for now and one for later, you won't lose.

A simple Prosecco that will tickle the fancy of those who enjoy a clean and crisp glass of fizz.

Twin Valleys Alpine Valley Pinot Gris 2023


Like its King Valley sibling, this is an easy-drinking Pinot Gris ready to launch at your next lunch gathering.

Twin Valleys Rosé 2023


It seems getting the colour right with Rosé is now priority number one and all else should fall into place. This Twin Valleys has ticked the appearance box but the bottle shade isn't helping and the bottle pic above doesn't give a full account.
