Australia - Victoria - Yarra Valley - Dominique Portet

Brut Rosé Bubbly 6-6-6
Light pink, almost peach colored. Nice stonefruit nose. Very fizzy, almost sweet, creamy texture. Easy drinking with plenty of sweet berry flavors. Has a clean finish. AU$24

2006 Yarra Valley Sauvignon Blanc 5-6-5
Light straw colored. Very grapey nose - the typical Sauvignon Blanc grassiness is kind of hard to find. Very sweet, not much traditional Sauvignon Blanc flavor. Huge passionfruit, a bit bit of yeastiness, crisp. Above average longth of finish, but not very interesting. Hints of oak seem to come through. AU$22

2006 Fontaine Rosé 5-6-6
Blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Shiraz. Rose-gold colored. Tropical fruits on the nose. Totally dry, with a streak of tannins. Red berries and cherry tastes. Nice savory finish. AU$18

2004 Heathcote Cabernet Sauvignon 8-7-8
Bit cloudy, light plum colored. Extremely interesting nose. Beautiful intense blueberry, currant, and spice flavors. Has a long lingering finish, nicely layered. This is good stuff. Nice yummy tannins. AU$40

U.S. Distributor is Grail Wine, 2870 Monticello Road, Napa
