Tower Road Paso Robles Petite Sirah 2015

v18. Very good. Soft, but distinct cedar nose. Deep, rich, luscious black cherry and blackberry fruit. Bright, velvety smooth, blended pepper, mocha, and soft leather finish. Ultimate food wine! — 20 days ago

Porongurup Shiraz 2017

Consistent notes from a year ago when we visited the winery in Porongurup WA and spent a wonderful hour with Owner and winemaker Rob Diletti. I love these cool climate peppery Shirazes. Should leave having the next one for a couple of years. — 2 years ago

Porongurup Riesling 2021

I looove my Great Southern Rieslings which is why I was super excited to tuck into this kindly gifted sample bottle from Castle Rock Estate (thank you!).

It’s a 2021 Porongurup Skywalk Riesling which retails for approximately $20. Definitely food friendly and also cellar worthy.

In the glass it’s a hay like colour with plentiful lemon-lime citrus characteristics, notes of apricot, musk sticks and minerality. In the mouth it’s fresh, juicy and crisp. A fantastic aperitif wine and it’s also so Asian cuisine justice.

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

A terrific winemaker with a great palate and all round nice bloke is Rob Diletti. We visited his cellar door a few years ago and had a private tasting with him. A good article in today’s Weekend Australian by James Halliday.

Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2012

The nose reveals; sweet & sour dark cherries, deeply, ripe & juicy strawberries, rhubarb & cranberry crossing, plum liqueur, blackberries, blueberries, candied raspberries, dark chocolate, limestone minerals, sandstone, anise to black licorice, dry, crushed rocks with blue, red, dark, fresh & withering florals with fields of violets.

The body is still firm, thick, grainy and full. The structure, tension are still tight. The length and balance are working their way into adolescence. Sweet & sour dark cherries, deeply, ripe & juicy strawberries, black raspberries, juicy, black plum, rhubarb & cranberry crossing, plum liqueur, blackberries, blueberries, candied raspberries, caramel, clove, touch of nutmeg, vanilla, dark chocolate, semi-sweet tarriness, understated herbaceousiness, limestone minerals, powdery sandstone leather, dry tobacco, saddle-wood to cedar plank, dark spice, sandstone, anise to black licorice, dry, crushed rocks with blue, red, dark, fresh & withering florals with fields of violets.

It’s still a youthful wine with another 10-15 years ahead.

I'm afraid to open any Barbaresco younger than this, I shy away until they have at least a 10th birthday. Nice notes.

Love this. It's crisp and refreshing. It's what I want to have when it's hot. It's sweet but not like Moscato dasti — 3 months ago

This stuff is dangerous. Smooth, light on the tongue, but not simple. A light gold color, some kind of melon note and vanilla flavors. Great at this price; points for cost/benefit ratio. At Cory's in the freezing cold. — 2 years ago
