Clare Valley, Mount Lofty Ranges


Polish Hill Clare Valley Riesling 2010

As expected petrol nose. Time in the decanter did not provide much relief. Some folks would not even taste given the nose. Once you get past the gasoline lots of material. A concentrated wine with tons of citrus fruits . Concentrated and powerful with many years to go. Singular! — 6 days ago

GRU Adelaide Hills Grüner Veltliner 2019

Brief notes. Peach and pear together with spice and a trace of pepper. Plenty of power on the palate. Probably one of Australia’s best examples of Gruner Veltliner. Bought at the Cellar Door in the Adelaide Hills in March 2021. — 3 months ago

Shiraz Mataro 2013

It took a while to open up
Still drinks super young with an acidity nearly as if it is a white wine..if it wasn't for the tannin
It hasn't unfolded much complexity, but it is long and super promising for the next 15-20 years
2013 Wendouree are going to live in balance for a long time

@Ceccherini Cristiano Cecc, That wine agency wouldn’t happen to be Addley Clark Fine Wines - Dan Clark is one of the owners. They import a range of fine Italian wine including Radikon amongst others.

It has a good portfolio with Italian, Nz and Aussie producers


Hanlin Hill Riesling 2012

Pale to mid yellow in colour. The wine was a little cold to begin with. Aromas of talc and lime marmalade, dried flowers - a faint paraffin note - No Kerosene or petrol (TDN). A beautiful aged Riesling from the Clare Valley from Petaluma - a long time favourite producer of Riesling. With air and warming up, some yellow peach notes developing. I see HH said this benefits from decanting which I didn’t do. Drinking at its peak. Sadly my last 2012. — 4 months ago

Shiraz 2013

Gave this a good several hours breathing before dinner, and it’s just starting to unfurl. Still young, but showing why it’s such a revered wine. Plenty of layers beginning to reveal themselves, berries, purple fruit and florals amongst them. Medium bodied and surprisingly soft on the palate, with tannins playing a secondary supporting role. Delicious drinking right now and will be amazing to revisit in years to come. — 5 months ago
