Robyn's Block is the oldest (30+) of the estate's Chardonnay plantings in the Twenty Mile sub-appellation. With each passing vintage, this certified organic-biodynamic wine just keeps getting better. The nose is focused and finessed with fresh citrus, touches of green apple and quince, wet stone and a floral note that all rises above the subtle oak spices. The crisp and zesty lime-citrus fruit and minerals glide on a razor sharp beam of mouth-watering acidity and light up the palate. This is pure elegance in the mouth, a complex array generous (but never weighty) fruit flavours that are balanced out by a wisp of spice that build in intensity through a long, long finish. This is irresistible now but will continue to give pleasure for five or more years. A brilliant Chardonnay made without a heavy hand in the cellar.
"This is the 'beefiest' and richest of the Tawse chardonnays, from 30+ year vines now farmed organically. It shows a billowing nose roasted nuts, ripe apple, meringue/custardy sweetness and buttered toast. It is medium-full bodied, fairly rounded yet founded on firm acidity and minerality, that really shows on the finish. A touch sour-edged - excellent length. A real mouthful."

All Vodka was not created equal. Before i fell in love with wine, i enjoyed a lot of Vodka. Some is good, some is not as good. There are large brands, and smaller ones. Vodka you need to mix and Vodka to drink on its own. This is undoubtedly one of the very best Vodka's i have ever tasted. The Vodka is made with winter wheat and is almost soft on the palate. It mixes well, and will add flavour to whatever you are making, but it almost seems a shame as the flavour of the vodka is so darn good. This is perfect on the rocks, or in a martini.
