Trinity Hill 2008 Chardonnay Gimblett Gravels

Beautiful straw color. Apple, vanilla, peach, full bodied, new world (N Zed), buttery with a nice acidic zing that brings it all in balance. Should go well with our fish pie.

Domaine D Ardhuy 2009 Bougogne

I was headed for the bargain burgundy but Lady Odd Bins up sold me by a pound and I'm glad she did. Nice balanced wine with subtle but present fruit and strong mineral tones and a touch of oak. Definitely worth going back to.

2010 Mosswood Amys

I've had and been impressed with a few other Mosswood wines from down under, most notably their Pinot noir. This is a Bordeaux blend. A bit young and tannic. I didn't do it any favors by popping and pouring and mismatching it with my dinner selection (chicken Marsala) but it gets two big thumbs up for the name, which my wife Amy particularly liked.
