Canberra District Shiraz Viognier 2015

Ravensworth is the private venture of Bryan Martin who is the winemaker together with Tim Kirk, at the nearby and famous Clonakilla - arguably the benchmark for Shiraz Viognier in Australia. Wonderful spicy scents together with a floral note from the Viognier. Medium weight with meaty, savoury spicy flavours on the palate. My kind of Shiraz blend and in the frame of Clonakilla with better QPR. — 24 days ago

Calvert Pinot Noir 2019

That case when Pinot Noir is delicious at the young age and is still promising in terms of ageing potential. Sexy, elegant and ripe bouquet of strawberry stew, forest floor, red flowers and mushrooms. Perfectly balanced, friendly and elegant despite 14abv, long evolving aftertaste. Love it!

Vat 1 Hunter Valley Semillon 2014

Annual Boy’s Trip away - this time to Cairns. At a BYO Indian Restaurant. No formal notes. Hunter Valley Semillon from a good year which could still go for another 10 years. Trademark waxy lanolin, wet hay notes. Such purity on the palate. — a month ago

Tyrrells are better than ever Byron. Apart from these 2 excellent whites they have released some individual paddock Shiraz made from very old vines planted in the 1800’s - known as “Old Patch”. Difficult to source even in Australia as their online members snap them up. I did manage to get a couple of bottles through 5 Way Cellars in Sydney.

We lived in Wahroonga so Tyrell’s was a regular stop for us along with Tamburlaine, Lindeman’s, Brokenwood and Lake’s Folly.

Haven’t had Tamburlaine for some time , so not up to date. The others are all going strong, particularly Brokenwood, but Iain Riggs has jacked up his prices particularly for the Graveyard Shiraz.

Central Otago Pinot Noir 2018

Ripe but sophisticated bouquet. Strawberry stew, sweet plum, clove, tomato, sagebrush and underbrush. Less fruity, more mineral palate with flavours of raw meat, iron, underbrush and sagebrush. Wonderful and demanding wine that without proper attention can be easily underestimated. Very young.

@Neil Valenzuela me too. I had it back in January then got vaccinated so I hope it’s negative but I didn’t want to be around everyone at work sick just in case.


@Sharon B Take good care of yourself! 💖

Lovely Shiraz - went super well with steaks on the grill! Super concentrated, great fruit but not to the SA kind of deep ruby red. Still awesome! — 18 days ago
