Wine Entry : HomeHill Wines Tasmanian Late Harvest Sticky 2003 (Australian)


Adrian and Constance got this wine from me when they were touring Tasmania, Australia. I have always wanted to go and visit too, but somehow never had the chance to yet. Tasmanian wines are not often seen in Singapore, so it was interesting to taste one. Not overly sweet like a Sauternes but generally pleasing with the Chin Lee food that we were consuming while having this wine.

By the way here is the address for Chin Lee at Bedok, it is a popular place especially with it’s BYO policy. They provided an ice bucket and champagne glasses for this wine!

Blk 115 #01-285 Bedok North Road Singapore 460115

Smell : Buttery melon, more akin to a Semillon

Taste : Slightly sweet and buttery but not intense like honey. Some spice tones could even be detected.

After taste : Bitter lemon citrus finish

Description at back of bottle :

A light luscious little sweetie. The grapes raisened on the vine until late in June. Pale straw colour with aromas of citrus and gooseberries. The luscious palate has a persistent finish, ideal with everything from fresh fruit through to pate, brie and blue chesse to light and berry desserts.
