Rocky soils and seven year old vines. Hoddles Creek are probably the leading exponent of this grape in Australia, though that being said, they’re also one of the only ones. I think this is the first Pinot Blanc that’s not in their higher priced 1er range.
Pear and raw almonds, whiff of struck match, though its fair to say this is a lot more about texture and shape, than flavour and colours. Feels great. Milky and chalky, pure acidity, very savoury and stony too, with a long powdery finish laced with dried herbs and lemon peel.

Rating 96 points James Halliday's wine tasting note
Handpicked, pressed straight to barrel, wild yeast fermented in French oak (25% new), partial mlf, not fined or filtered. Gleaming straw green; follows in the footsteps of the two prior vintages, lifting sauvignon blanc way out of the ruck, yielding nothing to the Adelaide Hills or Margaret River, demanding you drink it without moderation; it is at once luscious, yet fine, filling the senses with its array of perfectly ripened and formed fruit, its sauvignon blanc DNA largely irrelevant. Shades of Didier Dageneau. 96 points James Halliday

James Halliday 2016 Wine Companion: 97 pts for 2013 Bekkers Syrah.
From the Hickinbotham and Gateway Vineyards; 85% destemmed, 15% whole bunches; 5-day cold soak; wild ferment; basket pressed to French puncheons (40% new). A first class example of McLaren Vale shiraz, with remarkable articulation of black fruits, licorice and bitter chocolate supported and lengthened by positive fine-grained fruit and oak tannins. 97 points James Halliday

from Me - This is stunning, its a highly aromatic, pretty, yet very textural wine. An intensely floral bouquet with citrus, orange blossom, honey and hazelnut, leads to a beautifully intense, zesty palate of yellow and white fruits, citrus, unripe peaches and a tangy spicy edge. The nose alone is worth the entry fee, but the palate does not disappoint. ......
from some other bloke - "54 dozen made with no subtractions and no additions, aside a touch of sulphur
It’s a wilder, more textural style of Chardonnay and none the worse for that. Apples dusted with pepper, pickled ginger, white peach and maybe a whiff of honey. Light to medium bodied, kind of tangy and edgy, light powdery texture runs the length of the palate, and then ruby red grapefruit and spice punctuates the finish. Don’t serve it cold, and keep an open mind. Fascinating wine: the longer I spent with it, the more I liked it." Gary Walsh 93 points Winefront.com.au

"This is Black Label, which we all know means high quality and top shelf, even though it does not come in sealed plastic bag…
Slight fenugreek reduction, lime juice, white flowers and bashed rocks (or something like that). Light, tight and lime juicy, with grippy flinty texture and a particularly good finish that’s well focussed and grapefruity.
Excellent wine. A classic mouth-watering Eden." 94 points Winefront.com.au

Distinct Aussie bushwalk scents of earth, eucalyptus, wet leaves, sweet paperbark bark. There’s dark berries and plum going on, but it’s that savoury lift that defines the wine. Medium weight, glossy in texture, crisp acidity lending a freshness as the sweet slick of red-black fruit glides across the palate. There’s leafy notes through the wine, light sandy tannins, and it finishes with a little saline character. All up, it’s a bright, flavoursome wine, with fine structure; an easy wine to come at and drink or cellar. Bewdy. "93 points Winefront.com.au

It’s not just a wine of class it’s a wine of compelling drinking. Perfume is a little shy but pretty with frangipani floral notes, wet slate, ginger and lemongrass spice. The palate is zingy and tingly with crispy, fine acid and lacy with tangy, limey fruit flavours. In a high drinkability zone right now, the finish is mouthwatering and impressively long.
It’s a wine that dances across the palate, fresh, vibrant, juicy yet never feels broad or freewheeling. So very fine to drink.
Brilliant release." 95+ points Mike Bennie Winefront.com.au

Made mostly with mataro, but with dashes of both grenache and shiraz. Fermented dry. No time on skins but plenty of blush to the colour. “Rose is no longer a third wheel, it’s a legitimate style. You don’t make them by accident. They’re light reds. You make them with purpose.”The appeal is clear, and obvious. Gorgeous perfume. Gorgeous fruit. Jubey for the most part but as it rushes through the palate it begins to crackle with a herbal dryness.
Perfect style of rose. Execution to match. Has a bit of body, a bit of spunk, and yet it just wants you to drink it. 94 points Winefront.com.auLearn More

An example of a master winemaker of Semillon at play with a great vineyard and a great vintage. The expectation was sky high, but easily cleared by this beautiful Semillon, with its gleaming rivulets of polished lemon and honeydew melon, its balance already wondrous, its length impeccable. Drink it tonight or 20 years hence. 97 Points
From one of the leading exponents of Hunter Semillon, the Blonde Maestro himself, Andrew Thomas. Fine, almost pretty style. Bell clear, fresh fruit, mixed citrus and a firm spine of acidity. Very subtle chalkiness, but clarity is the thing, and a little generosity. Terrific. 95+ Points
Regular readers will no doubt be aware that I’ve got a lot of time for Andrew Thomas’ Braemore Semillon. This is so delicious on release that it’s almost possible to forget its age-worthiness. It’s intensely, limey – almost kaffir lime – with zippy lemon and pebbly minerality. A hint of salinity and a suggestion of spice. Unwavering focus, a juicy core of flavour and excellent extension. Will offer much pleasure now and later. 96 Points
Winemaker Andrew Thomas reckons this is as good a semillon as he's ever produced. No doubt it's a cracker, with an intensity of flavour that is obvious from the first sip — lemon zest and lime that has wonderful concentration and length. It's made to go the long haul — it will be stunning in six or seven years — but if you like the zesty bite of young semillons, then this has it in spades. Superb.
