Girl Talk Savagnin 2021

A big thank you to Tom Crago for sending over his new Grand Crew wine novel for me to read alongside this beauty of a wine from Tscharke. This ‘Girl Talk’ 2021 is a white blend of Savagnin and Albariño and it’s delicious! It went down perfectly with the first chapter of Grand Crew!

In the glass it’s a refreshing lemon & lime shade. It’s super fruity and aromatic with whiffs of pear, peach, nectarine, florals and a sprinkling of white pepper. It has fantastic flavour with excellent crisp acidity. I need more of this wine. So delicious.

All opinions are based on my own taste buds. Wine is subjective & always evolving, so make sure you drink what you enjoy!

The Beast Barossa Valley Shiraz 2010

Dried plum, dark chocolate; eucalyptus, soy sauce, black licorice, and stewed blackberry. More nonfruit than fruit on the nose. Acidity adds plenty of youthfulness. Black olive and dark cherry fruit. Supple on the mouth. Well made. Delicious. Drinking well now. — 16 days ago

Single Vineyard Shiraz 2017

This is absolutely brilliant. It was young and needed 45 minutes to open up. An amazing deep purple. Was luscious and full. Can’t wait to drink it again. Drank with Rob and Mandala in May 2022 — 15 days ago

The Distance Shiraz 2005

Beautiful Aussie Shiraz. The smell is overpoweringly delicious. Tastes of juicy big fruits and some green leaf/menthol at the top of that fruit taste. Then slowly the tannin reveals itself at the end. Dare I say that this 05 is still a baby? Drinking really nicely now, good for at least mother 10. — 5 days ago

Double Barrel 2nd Vintage Shiraz 2019

A must try if you like rich, generous and concentrated flavour, with a hint of smooth sweet dark berry and luscious oak. Intense. — 2 days ago

Mount Edelstone Vineyard Shiraz 2005

2nd best wine. I called it Amarone and was shocked at what it was as I’ve had it a few times before. On the sweeter side with massive depth. Big wine with lovely texture. Medium plus finish. — 14 days ago

Amon-Ra Barossa Valley Unfiltered Shiraz 2006

Bottle Variation

First bottle, 3 months ago, was quite advanced in 👀👃👅, but with no other flaws (no oxidation/spoilage/or TCA taint)

2nd bottle:

DAY 1
Served with the Vinloq System
👀Dark ruby./purple. Youthful
👃Sweet fruit
👅Fruit forward with blurry flavors. Dry tannins with slight heat. Paired nicely with wagyu beef

Remaining wine Slow Decanted in my refrigerator

DAY 14
👃Spicy blackberry, anise, chalk, & dried fruit
👅Purple fruit, anise & chocolate. Not complex but tasty. Finishes spicy with some heat. Balanced sweetness. Lowish acidity. Nice wine 🍷

This second bottle was what I expected. What caused the first bottle to be so advanced?

Joshua Barossa Valley Grenache Blend 2016

An excellent example of a Barossa GSM. A trace of bacon on nose and palate / very savoury. The taste descriptors for Grenache and Mataro certainly on show with notes of raspberry plus charcuterie, earth and tar. Mellow resolved tannins with chocolate nuances make this a delicious wine. — 15 days ago
