Wendouree

Shiraz Mataro 2011

From the disappointing wet 2011 vintage in South Australia where many producers did not produce a wine, but, typically with old vine fruit from Wendouree, this showed well. Quite ripe considering the vintage, yet medium weight palate - liquorice and spice notes with excellent intensity. Those old vines cover a multitude of sins like a cold wet vintage. 11 years is rather young for a Wendouree but given the vintage this was very polished. Has enough guts to have another 5+ years in the cellar. — 2 months ago

Wendouree

Shiraz 2001

Dense dark Ruby - call it black. Ripe plum, dark chocolate and the trademark menthol/eucalypt notes. Rich and full bodied. If you were blind tasting this you would never say this was 21 years old. After a while in the decanter red fruits became apparent - the profound intensity remained. A freak of a wine from vineyards, some of which date back to the 1890s. — a month ago

Wendouree Clare Valley Shiraz Malbec 1998

24 years old and still brick red and vibrant. The nose is unmistakably Malbec but the Cabernet sings on the long palate. The depth of flavor is remarkable with soft grippy tannins shining. — 3 months ago

Cherry Fields Dolcetto 2020

What a delightful bottle - great balance of black cherry, raspberry, plum and violet aromas with forest floor, mishroom, and leather. Wonderful acidity supporting the medium body and soft, velvety tannins. Fruity, fresh and great finesse. Clare Valley Dolcetto rocks — 2 months ago
