Sami-Odi

Little Wine #7 Syrah

Super smart multi vintage blend from Fraser Mcckinely and his Sami Odi, #7 is dominated by 2017 and 2016 and goes down to 2012. Ancient vines (oldest established in 1912) in the hands of an artist gives this wine some serious tension. Not only unique in its composition, but a Barossa Syrah with a stunning presence and vibrant freshness, tucked in a generous but fresh primary fruit profile with a dynamic depth and floral lift lying above the savory background. A pulsing fatigue and a surprisingly fresh spine and velvety tannins is taking it throughout a long finish. Enchanting indeed! — 13 days ago

Penfolds

Grange Hermitage Bin 95 Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon 2004

Floral nose with back drop of smoke, you could smell this all day. Mouthful of Black olives, dark berries, nuances of blackberries and smoked bacon note penetrate the entire palate. Soft tannins that sail on and on...has endless years ahead of it. — 7 days ago

Two Hands

Ares Barossa Valley Shiraz 2013

I met Michael Twelftree and we were discussing his flagship Shiraz, Ares, representing the very best parcels in each vintage and is sselected through an intense barrel classification process. A big powerful wine with complex aromas. On the palate blackberry and ripe cherry flavors, smoky oak, great balance, fine tannins, lingering endind with fruit and oak. Has room to age. Very nice. Tasting Sample. — 3 days ago

Elderton

E Series Chardonnay 2017

Choosing the next Downs Club White wine from 44 masked entries. Great balance between fruit and oak - the former in the peaches/stone fruit style. Very balanced. Amazing QPR selling for $15 on the Elderton web site with a LUC to the Club at under $10. My choice on the night but sadly democracy prevailed and another wine got the nod. — 14 days ago

Yalumba

The Signature Barossa Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz 2005

Yalumbas Signature Series always produces a faithful rendition of the Cabernet Shiraz blend - the Cab in the slight majority. Nose of mint and black fruits. Quite dense - still with a short term future despite some professional opinions on the drinking window. On the palate blackberry - soft tannins nearly fully resolved. Nearly as good as Penfolds Bin 389 without the cellaring future. — 4 days ago
