2005 Eldridge Pinot: Lovely stuff, a pure, floral soft Pinot that is lovely to drink right now, but I think another 2-3 yrs will see the oak integrate further & it will be even better. Exceedingly drinkable.
Chandon Rose 2003: A surprise packet – A dry, serious Rose with a fine balance between structure and generosity. Really very good.
Wild Rock Gimblett Gravels Merlot Malbec Cab 2004 – This label, like Craggy Range itself, is definitely hit & miss. This was hard, a little green and even after some furious swirling, not showing anything particularly appealing.
Spy Valley Sauvignon 2007: Its hard not to drink this almost ubiquitous stuff. Its clean, fresh & well balanced, showing a good mix of varietal green aromatics and tropical fruit richness. At Billy Kwong it went down a treat. Good value too.
