Freeman Vineyards Robusta Corvina 2015, Hilltops, NSW

by | Jun 26, 2024

Rich dried fruit, raisin & sultana nose. Oxidised aged notes, but not, which makes it an enigma on the palate. Some residual sugar but fruit driven rather than sweet. Despite its massive 17% alcohol it is not hot, maybe warm. The more it opens up the more you see a Recioto intensity and richness driven by dried fruit flavours. Amazing mouthfeel. Made from semi dried corvina grapes wild fermentation by the ‘Prunevale princess’ the so called wild yeast from the region. One of a kind in Australia.

Ratings Key:

Outstanding (Score range 95-100)

Often an internationally recognised, leading brand or winery – but not always! Produces a classic wine that is a faultless representation of the style/variety. Complexity on the nose and a seamless palate are an example of the hallmarks of an outstanding wine.

Highly Recommended (Score range 92-94)

A quality focused wine that has plenty of style. Length of palate and intensity are often key characteristics of highly recommended wines. These producers could be the ones to watch in the future.

Recommended (Score range 89-91)

An above average well-made, reflection of the style/variety, which often represents good value for money.
