Henry's Seven Barossa Red Blend 2012

Brief notes at the Filipino dinner at the Downs Club. Red and black fruits of cherry and fading raspberry with a little spice. A disconcerting whiff of wet tea towel which did not effect the palate. — 11 days ago

The Rose Grower Nebbiolo 2012

Very stylish wine. Full of flavour and gorgeous tannins. Expressing florals and hints of tobacco and earth. Quite light in alcohol. Only 13%. But generous and elegant. Lovely wine. — 4 years ago

Hill of Grace Vineyard Shiraz 2010

Spectacular effort. The wine meets you from the glass, confit cooked fruit with exotic spice, first impression is jam and not wine. Medium bodied with long burn. Is this the best Australian wine ? — 2 months ago

Actually the wine is very meaty I.e. a full expression of umami

The Emerald Pool Alder Springs Vineyard Syrah 2004

An unexpected surprise from our host, Paul Lister, at Alladale Lodge where he produced a mixed half dozen of 2004 Pax Syrah from different vineyards left by a former guest. A marvellous fragrant nose showing mature smoky meaty Syrah notes with savoury black cherry - also Bacon fat. Similar notes carrying thru onto the palate finishing with mellow resolved flowing Tannins. The 16.2 % ABV not noticeable. This wine was reminiscent of Henschke Hill of Grace for me. Cork broke in half trying to extract but in no way effected the wine. My first aged US Syrah and most impressed. — 2 years ago

Giles Lenswood Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015

Enjoying some of the wines we brought back from Australia. While the Hill of Grace is what Henschke is known for, this Pinot from the Adelaide Hills is an elegant, light style. I’m enjoying the red fruit and “Dentyne “characteristics. Medium+acidity makes this a great food wine. Lovely tea tannins lead to a sweet tart finish. — 4 years ago

Mount Edelstone Vineyard Shiraz 2015

1hr+ decant and could have used more. Dark red color. Interesting nose with metallic, medicinal tones that tingled my nose. Wine has massive strawberry and cassis; and is sweeter than I was expecting. Very concentrated. The tannins reduce with ample air and the spicy aspects dissipate with time as well making it more approachable. Medium finish. — 7 months ago
