Jasper Hill Georgia's Paddock

Jasper Hill is the Heathcote's stalwart winery, with a history of a few decades now. I have bought Georgia's Paddock on and off and find its bright, but concentrated fruit quite unique.

The other day, I drank the 1998 Georgia's Paddock. The fruit had raspberry and blackcurrant character, still quite lively. At the same time, the wine has some savoury characteristics resulting in quite a complex palate. The tannins were long, if perhaps not as smooth as I would have liked.

The wine will still drink well in a few years time and, when you open a bottle, you pretty much know what it is going to be like. I appreciate that.
