2013 Peter’s Block Pinot Noir - $65.00 ($330 per 1/2 dozen)

Rich, deep ruby appearance.

Heady aromas of plum, raspberry and fragrant oak. Some complex savoury, stalky notes are also apparent.

The palate is luscious, smooth and powerful. Full of fruit, concentrated yet balanced and in harmony. The supple silky mouthfeel of Pinot Noir is on full display with the flavours sustained on an extended finish.

Excellent drinking now but should be cellared to allow it to show its full quality.

2013 Cabernet Merlot - $30.00 (10% case purchase discount)

Medium ruby, retaining youthful hue.

Aromas of red fruits, plums and spicy oak. Quite restrained in its youth but we expect the bouquet will develop depth and interest as the wine matures.

The palate is very much in the Squitchy Lane style—sleek, harmonious, supple and spicy. Medium-bodied, the wine shows classical Cabernet structure that is softened by the Merlot.

Great cellaring potential. We suggest five to ten years.

2013 Cabernet Franc - $55.00 ($300 per 1/2 dozen)

Medium-deep ruby, with a red-purple centre 

Brooding, dark fruit profile with an inky, graphite-like note from the time on skins.

A true “vin de garde”, this wine does not reveal itself easily in its youth. Ripe fruit flavours merge with toasted oak in a restrained manner now but some years in the cellar will allow the wine to blossom and show its true colours. 

2014 Fumé Blanc - $30.00 (10% case purchase discount)

Light straw with green tinges, still looking very youthful.
The aroma is intense and powerful. Lifted passionfruit, smoke and lantana mingle together to create a striking bouquet, reminiscent of the 2012 Fume Blanc.
The palate somewhat belies the nose, being richer than one might expect. It's the best feature of our Fume Blancs--they constantly surprise at every turn.
Smooth, rounded and long on the finish with exquisite fruit penetration.
Ideal for drinking now but as we have seen with previous releases, cellaring for several years adds to the intrigue of the wine.

 

2015 Pinot Noir - $35.00 (10% case purchase discount)

New release (November 2015) and maybe our best Pinot yet...rich, ripe and generous. From a year widely regarded as excellent in the Yarra Valley.

2014 Chardonnay - $30.00 (10% case purchase discount)

From the great 2014 vintage, this wine is rich yet elegant. Not as full-bodied as the 2013, more in line with the 2012 but with greater depth.
Full of stone-fruit and citrus flavours with restrained oak. Lovely balance and harmony.

2014 Cabernet Sauvignon - $45.00 ()

At last, another Cabernet release--and what a beauty! One for the true believers and the Bordeaux lovers.
Lashings of cassis fruit, sweet oak and the trademark Squitchy suppleness. Lovely now or in ten years time.
