Jancis Robinson Review: Aust Women in Wine, London

Reviewed by Julia Harding MW November 13, 2017 

Vanguardist Wines "MVG” Grenache 2016 Blewitt Springs McLaren Vale, SA

17/20 "25% stems, 6-10 months on skins. Old oak. Bright cherry red. Juicy fruit layering over lovely texture. Tannins are fine, compact and starting to resolve – they bring not only texture but freshness. The finish is dry and chewy with delicious sour red fruit intensity. Very good. (JH) 13.8% Drink 2017-2026"

 Vanguardist Wines "CVR” Riesling 2016 Clare Valley, SA

17/20 "Barrel fermented but mostly old, various sizes. An interesting aroma that is fresh and citrusy but relatively restrained. A definite grip on the palate, perhaps not quite bone dry but that grip enhances the freshness and length. Distinctive style. Crisp and also quite compact. Needs time. (JH)

Drink 2017 - 2026"
