Louis Eden Valley Sémillon 2007

We had our last bottle ten years ago and this little beauty is still going strong. It's mellowed a touch but still fresh as a daisy. No toasty elements here, it's all mouthfilling goodness. Fresh acid holds it all together. Not amazingly complex but still good for another 10 years I reckon. — 4 months ago

Five Shillings Mourvedre Syrah 2021

This Shiraz/Mataro blend from Henschke is absolutely lovely, finished in screwcap, great youthful darkfruits and some nice oak to frame it, clearly needs 5-7 years of cellaring, but a lovely wine tonight. Incidentally, the restaurant in Penola (Coonawarra, South Australia) where we drank this tonight is fabulous, for me, better than many of the overpriced, under-delivering restaurants in Napa these days (Restaurant is called “Pipers of Penola”, the front of which was a 1920 Methodist Church!!). — 5 months ago

@Matt Perlman Delectable needs to identify the wine as the Cyril Henschke Cabernet.

Delectable corrected this very quickly. They had Mt Edelstone Shiraz initially.

Our Hill Shiraz 2021

Delectable - this is the Sami Odi Our Hill Cuvée. Notes later. 2021 vintage. This is the 2nd ever vintage of Our Hill from Sami-Odi from Shiraz grapes grown in the Eden Valley. The 3rd vintage released earlier this year only had a production of around 280 bottles (weather problems - hail) and sold out in under 30 minutes. I missed out. Delectable has done well to recognise this bottle - very cryptic even on Fraser McKinley’s highly cryptic labelling standards. I made a note of the first Our Hill about 93 weeks ago. All whole bunch vinification. Quite rich for an Eden Valley Shiraz. Interestingly Fraser says “Our Hill “ is best enjoyed over the next few years in its youth (finest on the day of opening) contrary to the old vine Hoffmann wines. Reminiscent of Henschke Mount Edelstone in some respects without the longevity of Edelstone probably. Delicious nonetheless. — 2 months ago

The Wheelwright Shiraz 2017

This is a Henschke Shiraz Cuvée I haven’t tried before but it is from the Eden Valley where the legendary Hill of Grace and Mount Edelstone come from. Made from 55 year old Shiraz vines. Cherry and raspberry aromas underpinned by savoury, peppery spice and dried potpourri florals. Not unlike Mt Edelstone in that respect. The palate is rich and round with some old vine persistence supported by bold tannins. Celebrating at The Melbourne Cup - the horse race that stops a nation on the first Tuesday in November. — 5 months ago
