Alex McKay started Collector Wines in 2005 with just a handful of cool climate shiraz and a determination to make elegant, long-lived wines. Fast forward to today, and they are known for wines that sing with a purity of regional expression and varietal definition.
Light, bright yellow colour, with a gently smoky reductive bouquet, a hint of Parmesan cheese (attractive). It’s a more complex style within the Tumbarumba paradigm. Good fruit concentration and depth, a lingering aftertaste and the flavour has detail and dimension. Excellent chardonnay. Drink: 2020 to 2028; Price: $38.00; Alcohol: 12.9%; Rating: 95 Points; Huon Hooke; The Real Review
Hand-picked, whole-bunch pressed, wild fermented and matured in French oak (30% new) for 11 months. An exceptional wine, harmonious and simple. White peach, pear and grapefruit all have something to say on the perfectly balanced and very long palate. The '16 and '17 are equally outstanding. Rating: 97 Points; James Halliday, The Weekend Australian
