Barratt 2017 Piccadilly Valley Sauvignon Blanc
The wine displays citrus, pear, tropical fruit, herbaceous and gooseberry aromas followed by a palate with persistent fruit flavours, minerality and crispness from natural grape acidity.
Barratt 2011 ‘The Ambrose’ Merlot
A complex nose of mulberries, blueberries, plums, savoury olive notes, cedar, earthiness and chocolate is followed by a soft palate with fine tannins, good length and balance. Despite its age at release (6 years) this wine continues to develop and has potential to age and improve for some years yet.
Barratt 2011 ‘The Reserve’ Pinot Noir
Despite its light colour, the wine exhibits strong Pinot varietal character on nose and palate with plenty of spice and floral notes to add to its complexity and charm.
Barratt 2013 Piccadilly Valley Chardonnay
This is a big and rich Chardonnay with characters of citrus, melon, honeysuckle and cashews complemented by oak-derived toasty, smoky notes. The palate is full bodied, creamy and lingering but finishes fresh with natural grape acidity, creating great mouth feel.
Barratt 2013 ‘Uley Vineyard’ Pinot Noir
Initially shy, the wine transforms with swirling and breathing in the glass to reveal a classical Pinot with strawberry and cherry fruit, spice, earthy, smoky, gamey and sappy characters. Well-structured with fine but firm tannins, great length and balanced natural acidity, this wine should mature and improve over at least 7 to 10 years.
