Downs Club

The Members Premium Red Blend 2008

Firstly to explain the label. 24 years ago when I was Wine Chairman at the Downs Club I copied the Yalumba concept of honouring people who had done a great job for the company. 8 years ago the Club decided to honour the contribution of my brother Mike - hence this label. Prior to Mike there have been 8 ex Presidents recognised in this way. The Wine itself is a 2008 Glaetzer Heartland Shiraz from Langhorne Creek. This is the 11th bottle of a dozen and easily the best. Medium bodied with M - Tannins and Acid. Mature plum and chocolate flavours. Interestingly the back label says cellar for up to 5 years!! What do they know! This over delivers in spades at 10 years of age. A wonderful surprise. I will leave the last one for a family occasion. — 6 years ago

@Anthony De Blasi @TheSkip @Peter van den Besselaar The current release Downs Club Premium Red has my dial on the label so I must do a review at some stage after I do Dr Greg Bookless who was honoured after my brother Mike.

Really liked this. Strong tannins but a lot of richness and fruit wrapped around them. — 7 months ago

Torbreck Vintners

Woodcutter's Barossa Valley Shiraz 2016

Solid Shiraz from Torbeck. Some spice, dark fruit and slightly earthy a bit like a Chateauneuf du Pape. Easy drinking and good value for money. It’s great that the Aussie producers have a full spectrum of the same varietals for people to enjoy. Torbeck, Two Hands, Penfolds and Glaetzer all have great options at multiple price points. — 5 years ago
