Mark Haisma is an Aussie who cut his wine making teeth over a decade of working with Dr Bailey Carrodus at Yarra Yering in Victoria crafting some of Australia's classiest wines. He arrived in Burgundy in 2009 and is one of three Aussie negociants currently bottling wine under their own labels. Mark has firm views about how to make the best from the fruit he manages to buy from willing vineyard owners: his wines have beautiful fruit of great clarity but no lack of vineyard expression. They are easy to enjoy. We love them!
The nose here is rich and pure and dark, a touch smoky and there's that hint of bacon fat again. Fruit is celestial plums and cherries. There's a touch of creaminess about the palate that makes one think" old vines". Fruit is dark and wild. And the fine and nutty, integrated tannins become incisive. A fresh wine, very long, having an exceptionally busy death. Most impressive. Bowes Wine original note
"Sweet little wild berries and a herby cedar note...Velvet texture and cool, dry finish. Mouth-watering." Julia Harding MW
All our wines are given a Sweetness Indicator from 1 to 5, with 1 being the driest and 5 being the sweetest.
This can be found for every wine under the Wine Details tab.
Most red wines are dry and therefore are indicated with a 1. The sweetness becomes more relevant with white wines, sparkling wines and pudding/dessert wines such as Sauternes and Tokaji.
