Home Hill ‘Landslide’ Huon Valley Pinot Noir 2018

Standard

96 James Halliday, 81 Huon Hooke…”a glorious wine”

If you’ve visited Home Hill’s wonderful winery, you’ll know that there is indeed evidence of a small landslide above one section of the vineyard.

So, what’s going on here then? Halliday 96, Hooke 81. I can’t answer that, I can only add that I’ve had a couple of the 2018 Landslide and whilst I didn’t take notes and my memory is not the greatest, I’d recall if the wine was as bad as Huon’s review, and probably pulled it from sale. Some of you have probably also tried it as it was released by me in Singapore in January 2020 so if you’ve any feedback it would be much appreciated. If you buy it, and it’s not up to scratch, then I’ll refund.

Currently listed at S$59, I’ve dropped it to S$49 to tempt you to try.

I’ve got 10 BOTTLES in MELBOURNE

2017 – $53 – 5 btls in AU – JH95

Mount Langi Ghiran ‘Langi’ Grampians Shiraz 2019

Standard

97 Huon Hooke, 96 Jeni Port, 94 Mike Bennie…”a spectacular shiraz”

Exclusive to Tiger Wines in Singapore. Mount Langi Ghiran’s flagship wine that retails downunder for A$200 but it’s listed here at S$189. That’s the Singapore alcohol tax (S$9.77 for this bottle) working for you against the wine tax in Australia of around A$24. I’d give it at least a couple of years before “popping the cork” so to speak (it’s under screwcap).

24 BOTTLES in MELBOURNE
