Wine of the Week:  Urlar Pinot Noir 20085 Stars given by Michael Cooper.  He wrote “This richly scented, deeply coloured red is flourishing with bottle age, unfolding cherry, plum and spice flavours; it possesses lovely vibrancy, concentration and complexity.  Good value at $35.”

Urlar Sauvignon Blanc 2009 – 4.5 Stars given by Michael Cooper.  He wrote “Racy, fully dry style with mouthfilling body and punchy, ripely herbal flavours, fresh, finely balanced and long.  $22.”  Published 12 June 2010.
