Huon Hooke: 2018 BackVintage Clare Valley Watervale Riesling

Light, bright yellow colour with a softly floral, toasty, yeasty bouquet, which seems open and slightly forward....It's soft and fruity yet dry on the tongue, with a broad, gentle structure which is immediately accessible. Good wine.. Benchmark Price $23.72

Light, bright yellow colour with a softly floral, toasty, yeasty bouquet, which seems open and slightly forward. It's soft and fruity yet dry on the tongue, with a broad, gentle structure which is immediately accessible. Good wine, if not all that detailed. Drink 2019 to 2024

Huon Hooke: 2016 BackVintage Reserve Yarra Valley Chardonnay

Light yellow hue and a subdued, savoury, straw and dried wildflower bouquet...It has intensity and length... Very good value for money. Benchmark Price $26.59

Light yellow hue and a subdued, savoury, straw and dried wildflower bouquet. The wine is lean and taut on the tongue, dry and intense, savoury and narrow-waisted. It has intensity and length rather than amplitude. Very good value for money. Drink 2017 to 2022

Huon Hooke: 2015 BackVintage Vintage King Valley Cuvee Brut Sparkling

Light yellow hue; peach, straw and apricot aromas, some nougat; a touch of development. Crisp, dry finish. Banchmark Price $24.00 OUTSTANDING VALUE!

Light yellow hue; peach, straw and apricot aromas, some nougat; a touch of development. The palate is full and soft, round and ample, with generous flavour, especially for the price. Crisp, dry finish. Firm, very dry and savoury with a slight phenolic grip. Outstanding value. Drink 2017 to 2020

Huon Hooke: 2016 BackVintage Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc

"Fresh, young and attractive. Some dusty, almost earthy notes, too. Good wine and great value." #6 of 34 !

Light straw colour, with a restrained, backward, lightly floral aroma. Fresh, young and attractive. Some dusty, almost earthy notes, too. The palate carries a trace of sweetness and is soft and round, fruity and supple. A hint of spice in the mid-palate. Good wine and great value. Drink 2017 to 2022
