2015 Scorpo Aubaine Chardonnay
An archetype of modern Australian chardonnay, in all its rip-roaring deliciousness.
It flows so well. It feels so soft. It has backbone but it coats it in velvet. White peach, green apple, fresh/juicy pears, all infused with spicy/cedary oak. It draws you in, keeps you there, and then sets you sailing on the finish.

2014 Scorpo Pinot Noir
Tasted this early last year – loved it – and have been meaning to review it here. It looks every bit as lovely a year on.
It’s meaty and substantial but it has class written all over it. Foresty red/black cherries, mineral, a spread of spice and smoky, polished, seductive oak. It feels complete, it feels complex, it feels delicious. Not a bad combination. Length is exemplary too.
