Breakside Brewery

Limited Edition Bellwether

What a unique beer. The lime leaf and gin barrel really come through the funky wheat in such a nice way. Perfectly balanced. I could imagine this being even better in a year or two. Another winner from break side. — 4 years ago

Arcus Estate Dundee Hills Pinot Noir 2012

Classical mind-bender. Bellwether fair-friender. Cyclical soul sucker. Six-cylinder brain puncher. — 4 years ago

Riverland Montepulciano 2017

This Monte is next level.
Again with the texture and savouriness.
The fruit is all up in the backseat yelling at the driver.

Black Magic Black Currant

I’m not celebrating my birthday until the weekend but it’s always nice to have something the actual day of - thank you @James Forsyth for sharing this!! It’s delicious, the black currant really makes this taste 😍 chef’s kiss, as we millennials say. Almost dangerously good, it really tastes like the black currant juice I drink in Germany.
Also thank you to
@Shea Bove @Matthew Burgess @Claire Troussieux for making today fun 🥳

Wrattonbully Tempranillo 2016

Nose says old but tongue says young. 2016 Tempranillo that swings down the palate with perfume and some peppery heels; touch of cardamom, little chocolate and a lick of tart cherry. — 4 years ago

Georgie my daughter pretty much covered the tasting note. A delicious well made new world Temperanillo showing cherries dark chocolate and pepper. Serve lightly chilled. I had another Delectable note on this a few weeks ago. Easy to drink.


Sawmill Creek Vineyard Dry Rosé Pinot Noir 2011

Sweet strawberry with floral flavors almost like rose. Light and refreshing for the summer when you just need something cold. — 4 years ago


Tamar Valley Chardonnay 2012

Very pale lemon in colour. Tasted after the Premier Cru Hubert Lamy and similar in many ways - the texture, the acid, the citrus the subdued oak influence, but not as much minerality or salinity. Made by Sue Bell at her Bellwether winery in Coonawarra from Chardonnay grapes from the Tamar River in Tasmania. A good wine in the leaner style - showing the quality of Tasmanian Chardonnay. Consistent notes 88 weeks later on 9th December 2020. Chablisesque. Grapefruit notes. Still bracing acidity. — 3 years ago

Carbonic Cabernet Franc 2017

So legit. Tough vintage for Can Franc around the lakes, but Chris and his team bucked the trend (yet again) and made a thoughtful, imaginative wine. Fruit bursts off the glass from the jump. Nice textural decision to counter the acidity with the slight carbonic effervescence. Just wish I had more. — 4 years ago

Wrattonbully Shiraz Malbec 2015

100% Shiraz for 2015 due to frost wiping out the Malbec crop.
Medium bodied and at the risk of sounding like a broken record textured!
