GRU Adelaide Hills Grüner Veltliner 2019

Brief notes. Peach and pear together with spice and a trace of pepper. Plenty of power on the palate. Probably one of Australia’s best examples of Gruner Veltliner. Bought at the Cellar Door in the Adelaide Hills in March 2021. — 9 days ago

Lyle Fass

Great petrol nose. Honeyed. Apricots. Mineral and subtle. Really nice. Palate is elegant and complex with great acidity and tension. Very long and juicy. Excellent purity and freshness. A great showing. — a month ago

The Armagh Clare Valley Shiraz 1996

This was really something upon initial decant—so supple, so long. Fell apart a little with extended air but this was first in the lineup of mature Aussies and made quite an impression — 5 months ago

@Matt Perlman I have found the ‘96’s can go head to head with the ‘98’s

Sounds yummy


Hanlin Hill Riesling 2012

Pale to mid yellow in colour. The wine was a little cold to begin with. Aromas of talc and lime marmalade, dried flowers - a faint paraffin note - No Kerosene or petrol (TDN). A beautiful aged Riesling from the Clare Valley from Petaluma - a long time favourite producer of Riesling. With air and warming up, some yellow peach notes developing. I see HH said this benefits from decanting which I didn’t do. Drinking at its peak. Sadly my last 2012. — a month ago

Shiraz 2013

Gave this a good several hours breathing before dinner, and it’s just starting to unfurl. Still young, but showing why it’s such a revered wine. Plenty of layers beginning to reveal themselves, berries, purple fruit and florals amongst them. Medium bodied and surprisingly soft on the palate, with tannins playing a secondary supporting role. Delicious drinking right now and will be amazing to revisit in years to come. — 3 months ago
