A vibrant nose displaying nutmeg spices, earthy and cedar oak. Elegant, dry medium bodied wine with some primary black berry fruit as well as cedar oak. Tannins build to produce a long chalky finish. Lovely Bordeaux style wine from this consistently good quality small producer. Pre-release tasting, price is only an approximate.
Golden Ball Gallice 2019, Beechworth, Victoria
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.
