2019 Millbrook Winery Limited Release Chardonnay 94/100

The nose is satisfyingly creamy and rich - toasted oak, curry leaf and salted yellow peach. The palate is intensely concentrated with nuts galore and saline acid. Load up a Burgundy glass - this is on the richer side of things, so do not approach if Chablis is more your style.

2020 Millbrook Winery Regional Viognier – 94/100

Sweet spiced apple, ginger, pepper, mandarin pith, summer apricot and jasmine tea. The palate is fat, slippery and oily, with apricot marmalade and cloudy apple juice in equal measure. The length of flavour is good, however the intensity of florals and ripe orchard fruit mean this will likely be consumed within 5 years of release - and that will be ok. Because it is delicious.

2020 Millbrook Winery Estate Viognier – 94/100

Viognier really is the cornerstone variety at Millbrook, nestled in Jarrahdale in Perth's Hills. Sweet spiced apple, ginger, pepper, mandarin pith, summer apricot and jasmine tea. The palate is fat, slippery and oily, with apricot marmalade and cloudy apple juice in equal measure. The length of flavour is very good, however the intensity of florals and ripe orchard fruit mean this will likely be consumed within 5 years of release - and that will be ok. Because it is delicious.
