2005 Wines from Wineries List: O
Colour: Deep, dark maroon Aroma: Excellent spicy lift, strong mocha and dark chocolate overtones. Palate: Super intense palate, but still showing the typical HJ restraint and finesse. Again a wine to age, with fruit depth through the middle palate.
Regional raspberry fruit, gingery, liquorice, ripe fruit, soft tannins and nice clear fruit. Finishes with minerally tannins.
O Fournier is based in Argentina's Mendoza and is making some smart wines. This is pleasantly fragrant, has ripe plummy, blackberry flavours with some extraction and just enough grip to remind you this is red wine. Imported by Grape Expectations.
Light- to medium-bodied; good fruit weight ranging through plum and black cherry, with additional spice and forest notes.
Medium-bodied; attractive spicy/cedary notes to the red and black fruits of the mid-palate; silky tannins, good length.
Clean, light fruit salad/apple fruit; good length, balanced acidity.
Evolving smoky/toasty/bacon-like aromas leading to a lively, fleshy palate with some solid varietal flavours.
Light- to medium-bodied; good texture with a mix of red and black fruits; minimal oak, but has length, finishing with fine tannins. Excellent value.
Bright colour; fresh flavours, but the wine is a little unfinished/underworked. At the price, hardly surprising.
Light- to medium-bodied; fresh blackberry and cherry fruit; balanced tannins and another bargain.
Appearance: Opaque dark red with a dark red hue. Nose: Classic cabernet nose of macerated black fruits, currants and cedar underpinned with vanilla and red earth. Palate: The palate is big, rich and juicy, full of black fruit, poached plum and toast, with a robust, yet even tannin structure that carries the wine to a long savoury, cedary finish. A structural wine of longevity.
A complex bouquet and palate, very different in style to the varietal; intense fruit interplays with oak, wild yeast and lees, but at the end of the day, retains its integrity and purity. Single Vineyard Upper Yarra Valley.
This is a superb lighter style of late-picked riesling, not showing any botrytis of course but with a typical riesling nose of minerals and a hint of petrol (in the positive Alsace sense). The colour is still pale, the palate very fine and tautly structured, filled with greenapple and floral riesling flavours, with lots of sweetness matched by lively acid. It's a delicious style of wine and would go perfectly with a fresh, sweet peach.
A sprightly wine, medium-bodied, but with very good line and length as red fruits and a throng of spices emerge through to the finish; from a single, dry-grown vineyard. Deserves the 864 label.
Firm and astringent, with pleasing intensity, balance and tightness. A floral, violet-like perfume precedes a juicy expression of mulberries, plums and dark cherries, tightly knit with cedar/vanilla oak and its grainy tannin. Genuinely elegant, it finishes with plenty of length and brightness of flavour.
Imbued with less winemaker-derived complexity than previous vintages, this restrained and elegant chardonnay has an oaky, but subdued bouquet of pristine grapefruit and melon aromas backed by dusty vanilla oak. Austere and citrusy, its pleasingly tight and refreshing palate finishes with crisp acidity.
