The Collective Review

You could see it in his smile. Mark Pollard, our head wine buyer, returned to the office with an unmistakable pep in his step and a grin from ear to ear. "We've got it," he exclaimed, achieving the unthinkable - a hidden wine world gem, whispered about by Zegna-suited power diners and Melbourne's coolest Sommeliers.

Tasting Notes

Wine; Super light Ruby/Garnet colours. So perfumed, light strawberry, raspberries, dried thyme (whole bunch?) and a bit of Jamon just for kicks! Really light and delicious on the palate, fresh strawberries, cranberry and raspberry, dried herbs. Tannins just right and lovely acid line through to the persistent and super fresh finish.
