Celebrity Wine Taste Test

Celebrity Wine Taste Test Good Food
Professional wine critic and restaurateur Stuart Knox scored a selection of celebrity wines supplied by the Herald and The Age.

Here are the results.

Ponting Wines "First Session" Sauvignon Blanc 2020, Adelaide Hills
Typical Adelaide Hills restraint with a little bit of green herb on the nose, but in that thyme zone rather than a lantana patch. Tight focus, nice acid and sea-spray salinity. It's pretty bloody smart, actually. Score: 91/100 | Shop Online Now

Ponting Wines "Mowbray Boy" Pinot Noir 2019, Tasmania
Fresh red cherries and a bit of dried herb work, good acid and crunch. It's a properly nice drink. I like that Ben hasn't tried to make it into a blockbuster wine with the celebrity name attached. Score: 92/100 | Shop Online Now

Ponting Wines "The Pinnacle" Shiraz 2017, McLaren Vale
I like the nose. McLaren Vale can be quite voluptuous and this one's not, it smells like it has been kept under control. It's still a big boy. Good structure. Plenty of tannins. There's a seaside-y, iodine character which gives it a nice savoury element too. Score: 93/100 | Shop Online Now
