Barossa Valley Shiraz

9.2

Quite an alluring nose, deep and layered. Just half a second after the first sip I knew it was epic. It hits the palate with dimension and balance. It dominates the front and mid palate and stays there for the whole ride. This is soft and approachable while still being balanced and classical. Hell yeah! — 9 days ago

Big bold red. Shiraz (67) dominant blend w Grenache (17), mataro (10), and viognier (6). Round red fruits, a touch of floral in the mid, then tobacco, black pepper, and some tannin. — 2 days ago

The Vincent Single Vineyard Grenache

A terrific balance of ever so slightly candied fruit and savoury wood spice. Another major win is the fine grained palate coating texture no doubt due to it being unfined and unfiltered. Seriously what a bargain — 21 days ago

Once your nose is in the glass you’ll want to dive in! It has this earthy richness that I can’t pin down. The palate is terrifically complete for one so young. Mild super fine tannins and a very gentle use of oak, literally mouth watering. — 8 days ago

Hoffmann Dallwitz Syrah 2016

Purple!
This is extremely youthful. Ink, mint, resin, blackberries, black pepper and kalamata olives.
Lots of tannines, which are perfectly ripe and soft, Elegant and powerful, this is so promising, but needs at least three more years in the dungeon. Or 24hr in the decanter.
Truly beautiful, pure and graceful.

Poor Thing Barossa Valley Grenache

Smokey notes of caramel, oak, and tobacco. Well balanced and full bodied with a medium finish. Big fruit sporting currants, cherry, plum, strawberry, and raspberry. Picked up a few bottles about 3 years ago at a tasting and very glad I’ve got a couple more to drink. — 24 days ago

First Drop Wines

Mother's Milk Shiraz

Fruit and oak forward in style, with dark fruits and vanilla, but some savory character still sneaks through with black pepper, some floral notes, and just a touch of brine in the back end. Well made in the style, great bbq wine. — 10 days ago

Pewsey Vale Vineyard

Single Vineyard Estate Eden Valley Dry Riesling

Pale straw vibes, limestone, mineral, mountain grass.

Apple-y 🍎

Slightly petrol note at the end, dry as a desert bone, higher acidity than what’s called for, little more sharp and refreshing than savory and round.

Gnarly Dudes Barossa Valley Shiraz 2020

Magnum! Very nice and enjoyable Shiraz, the way this grape should be like form the book. Serve it slightly chilled 17-18 degrees should do the trick. — 13 days ago
