Tasted at Prince Wine Store (South Melbourne (RP AUD$120). Clear, pale lemon colour. A clean nose, med+ intensity aromas of almond, white peach and nectarine. A dry, med+ bodied white wine with a smooth velvety texture, zesty and carrying more weight than a typical chardonnay. A well-balanced wine with appropriate amount of fruity acidity. Fleshy fruit flavours of peach and honeyed spices. Nice finish. Drink now – 2017. 92/100.

The White vine Terras de Lantaño smells fresh and with a little taste of strawberries..... A really "superb· vine, but cheap.

£14.22 2011 http://www.montalbera.it/eng/ruche.php Società Agricola Montalbera S.r.l. - via Montalbera, 1 - 14030 Castagnole Monferrato (At) ITALY - montalbera@montalbera.it £14.22 2011 Quite light. Not very serious since it starts out being very fruity. But then it moves on to give that classic Piedmont depth; this is true especially after its left open for a while/day. Overall its too (in a strange way) fruity for me. Perhaps the 2 rating is a bit harsh but not by much; I think I can find much better.

Ruby red in colour; on the nose, intense bouquet of mature fruits; on the palate well structured, harmonious, soft and very pleasing.

90-91 Points "The 2009 Beaujolais L'Ancien Le Buissy represents an older barrel-raised cuvee he essays in the best vintages from two parcels of nearly septuagenarian vines, and had been assembled in tank when I tasted it in June. Cassis, cherry, and bittersweetly floral aromas lead to an initially unusually effusive, sweetly-fruited palate for a Gamay from the chalky south. But, as if the wine overheard that remark, it then delivers an almost citric bright streak, saliva-inducing juiciness, and a veritable load of chalk and stone in the finish. As this takes on air, it also acquires almond extract and kirsch more familiar from this terroir. It should remain spine-tingling for at least several years, probably outdoing the -regular- cuvee."

91 Points "The Brun 2009 Cote de Brouilly allies lushness of texture to liveliness, lift, and refreshment, and ripeness of blackberry and mulberry with a stone-licking undertone as well as invigorating piquancy and tartness that remind me of chomping down on the berry seeds. Notes of black tea, sage, and mineral salts add further complexity. The 2008 version of this wine, incidentally, turned out better than it had appeared to me (right after bottling) when I tasted it for issue 184, but this 2009 is in another, glorious class, making it a superb value! Enjoy it over the next 3-4 years." Wine Advocate, #190 Aug 2010, David Schildknecht

Deep garnet-purple colored, 2009 Terra Barossa Cabernet Sauvignon gives notes of warm black currants and blueberries with a whiff of dried mint and some underbrush. Very crisp in the mouth, it has a medium-full body and medium-firm grippy tannins, finishing medium-long. Drink it now through 2014.

A great value, Thorn Clarke’s 2009 Terra Barossa Cabernet Sauvignon boasts bold aromas of cedar, cassis and mint, then follows up with similar flavors. It’s medium to full in body, with firm tannins and mouthwatering acidity that make it drinkable now but suggest it may age nicely through 2020.

Bright ruby. Pungent aromas of cherry pit, dark berries, rose and smoky herbs. Then sappy and broad in the mouth, offering velvety cherry and candied plum flavors and a floral nuance. A jolt of minerality adds lift and carries through the smooth, seamless finish. This is ready to drink.

I’ve actually never had a wine from Thorn-Clarke that I didn’t love, and the Terra Barossa Cab is no exception. Big and juicy, with soft black fruit and bold spice notes, this is a perfect wine for the grill.

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes The unique blends of grapes in this wine results in silkiness and fruit purity. A brilliant, yellow-green wine with a floral, apple complexity on the nose, intensely fruity and elegant, and a harmonious, soft mouthfeel.
