5 stars for the 4th Consecutive YearPosted on July 31, 2015
James Halliday’s Australian Wine Companion 2016 awarded Barringwood 5 stars, as it has every year since the 2013 edition. Here are the reviews of our current release wines.
BARRINGWOOD 2013 MILL BLOCK PINOT NOIR $45
Grown on the estate's oldest vines, which itself was founded in 1998. Complexity is the name of the game here. It's all undergrowth and macerated cherry, spice and forest floor. It strikes up front then pulls you swiftly through to a second burst of flavour on the finish. Positively impressive.
BARRINGWOOD 2013 MILL BLOCK CHARDONNAY $32
Free run juice only, fermented wild. It's a wine of excellent texture, flavour and length. Dry pears, tinned pineapple, sweet milk, peach and fruit toast. Elegant but it makes an impression. It should develop and drink beautifully over the next handful of years.
BARRINGWOOD 2014 PINOT GRIS $32
It skates fast and furious through the palate. It's in the same exotic mould as the 2013 but has extra drive through the finish. Green apple, Turkish delight, lychee and lemon. A goodun'.
BARRINGWOOD 2013 ESTATE PINOT NOIR $34
Light in colour but deep in flavour. Mint and stewed plums, splashes of spice, and a chalky/sinewy finish. Developing slowly but should perform well given time.
BARRINGWOOD 2014 SCHONBURGER
Refreshing white with sweet-edged citrus, spice and musk notes. Not particularly intense but interesting.
