Decanter's Wines of the Year

 

Terre de Mistral 'Rosalie' Provence 2018 - 95 Points 

Rated ‘Outstanding’- top of 70 Provencal Rosé's.

"Terre de Mistral, named after the famous and powerful mistral wind, so ubiquitous in the area, but also from owners Nadia and Serge Davico’s affinity to the land and Provençal poet, Fréderic Mistral. Situated on the slopes of the Sainte-Victoire mountain near Rousset, just east of Aix-en-Provence, the 50ha estate produces a diverse range of wines from red, white, sparkling and rosé, in varying appellations from IGP Méditerranée, Côtes de Provence and Côtes de Provence Sainte-Victoire, where Cuvée Rosalie is made from Syrah, Grenache and Rolle (Vermentino). There’s a tradition of naming every wine from someone in the family, and Rosalie is Serge Davico’s grandmother! Nicolas Clerc MS: Discreet, mineral, fresh pistachio, marzipan, garrigue, thyme, oregano, pretty fruit. Creamy, solid but tense, generous and gastronomic. Extremely Mediterranean in style. Elizabeth Gabay MW: Creamy, fresh, and spicy. Good intensity of fruit and lively white peach acidity. Very attractive. Joanna Simon: A very pale peach. Fragrant, sweet, creamy peach aromas and flavours (almost like Viognier!), precise and fresh yet creamy textured, with citrus-edged length."

 

Yabby Lake, Single Vineyard Pinot Noir 2017 - 95 Points  

 "Overseen by winemaker Tom Carson, the Single Vineyard Pinot Noir is fermented in traditional oak open fermenters with the wine seeing 13-15 days of skin contact, before 11 months maturation in 20% new oak. Roger Jones: Seductive, dark and glimmering with style, whilst the front has the dark berries the cedar silky mid palate with a hint of fresh acidity carries this wine beautifully, this is a world class Pinot that oozes quality and will age beautifully although it is a damn good wine now.

 

Justin Knock MW: Moderate colour and somewhat closed on the nose, dark fruits and menthol, overall quite pristine fruit, ripe in the cherry, blueberry spectrum. Attractive oak make this really easy to like, it's more conventional with lovely, cedary oak. Has the charm turned up and hard not to like. Easy and likeable."
