This Month's Featured Wines
- A Rare BeastNot always available and even when conditions are suitable for production most of this wine finds it's way to select restaurants and cellar door only. We have managed to procure stocks of this 'rare beast'. Although 'beast' is probably too strong a word for this 2012 Joseph Chromy Merlot. But it certainly is not a light weight Merlot by any means. This is a Merlot that will have you wondering why the variety is not put in bottle more often! There is no mistaking it's 'cool climate' characteristics, with hints of tar and green leaf aromas backed up by a fleshy, weighty palate of plum like fruit and complex French oak combining together for mid and back palate length. A lovely soft/supple wine.THE TASMANIAN WINE CENTRE July, 2014

- The cool ripening conditions of the 2011 vintage have helped craft a wine that is refined yet structured. The nose is incredibly lifted and fragrant, red fruits and peppery spices feature strongly. Aromas of mulberry, black plum, soot and baking spice. The palate is pleasantly bright with lively acidity and elegant fruit weight. A generous dose of mineral fruit tannin ensures the wine is structured and wonderfully long.

At it's price point Relbia's 2013 Pinot is a beautifully drinking drop! In fact, it is quite probably the states best value for money Pinot Noir at the moment. The nose is a delight, with earthy spiciness and white chalk. It's a well balanced wine, good fruit and oak complexity, which opens up nicely on the palate. The winemaker at Relbia is Ockie Myburgh - a very talented young man and one to watch in the future if this wine is anything to go by.
