Clare Valley, Mount Lofty Ranges

A. P. Birks

Wendouree Shiraz 2001

Quite dense crimson in colour for its age. Notes of Menthol/Eucalyptus and aniseed typical of Wendouree. A full bodied palate- earthy, berry, mineral with a tarry note. Might be a 19 year old wine but there is so much latent energy and power it will go on for some years yet. I will drink my last one in 2 to 3 years and if I have the willpower should be 4 to 5 years. Will go the distance. — 7 days ago

@Ira Schwartz Yes I realised you meant Wendouree. Surprised that any bottles made their way to the US. Good to see.

@@Bob McDonald it was in the early 2000’s . My guess they were buying random bottles from Australian collectors who may have relocated to LA.

Probably right Ira.

Eldredge Vineyards

Clare Valley Riesling 2009

Mid Lemon in colour. Paraffin/Kerosene aromas are dominant on the nose with white flowers, mineral, and over ripe Apple. Palate shows orange rind and citrus in general with a honeyed note. Medium bodied yet full of flavour, medium plus intensity and also retaining a refreshing finish. In summary, a wonderful aged Clare Valley Riesling at its peak. It’s a close run thing but on the strength of this I’m starting to prefer aged Clare Valley Riesling over aged Eden Valley Riesling narrowly. — 25 days ago

Lansdowne Vineyard

Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir Rosé 2018

Rosé and comfort food - heck yes! Growing up my mum made ‘sausage swirls’ which are pastry, sausage, potato and cheese swirls. And now they’re my go-to comfort food - however I add a jar of jalapeños 🌶 for a bit of a kick 🙌

I thought they’d be a great match to this bottle of Lansdowne 2019 Pinot Rosé which we were sent as a sample from Good Pair Days (thanks guys!).

Only a small quantity of this wine was made (177 cases in fact) due to extreme weather conditions that year.

If you want to give it a whirl, and/or try out the Good Pair Days experience, make sure to add the code “travellingcorkscrew” for a discount at the checkout 😉

I felt like I was watching the sunset 🌅 as the red-y orange like liquid was poured into my glass. On the nose it had me thinking about wild strawberries 🍓, tangerine and pink grapefruit. While in the mouth it’s smooth and hella delicious. Refreshing, comforting and bloody yum.

This wine was sent to me as a sample, I was under no obligation to post about it. By using the above promo code I will receive a small amount of commission.

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

Shaw and Smith

Adelaide Hills Shiraz 2009

A museum release from the winery - I bought this at a Shaw and Smith tasting in Brisbane a few years ago. An asparagus note initially which blew off. Asian spices, raspberry, earthy mineral notes on nose, carrying through to the medium to full bodied palate. A nice balance between cool climate and warm climate characteristics. Finishes with a little astringency. — 14 days ago
