Esoterico Adelaide Hills + Riverland White Blend 2021

Surprisingly approachable for an orange wine. Kumquat and bitter lemon. Good balance of acidity to counter the nice phenolic finish. Good structure. — 15 days ago

Kloof Street Old Vine Chenin Blanc 2022

Great stuff! Pure high acid, timid nose, great viscosity. Apple, lemon, maybe green pineapple but lean, no bruising — 4 months ago

Kloof Street Swartland Rouge Red Blend 2021

Plus and dark berries. Not a thick fruit bomb, though. Has nice acidity, which I appreciated with my grilled and rather fat- laden rib eye. — 6 months ago

Spring Street Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

PnP. Drinking young. Very dark, thick red color. Medicinal tones, cedar, and dark cherries on the nose with some oak. Same on the palate. Seems higher than the 14.4 OH. Next to zero finish which is disappointing. Average Napa Cab right now and seems way overpriced at $60+. — 2 months ago

Bullets Before Cannonballs Lagrein Blend 2021

Well balanced, fruit forward with good body. Plums and berries on the nose. Fun blend. — 6 months ago


Riverland Montepulciano 2019

Medium to dark Ruby. Dried meat and cherry, very savoury on the nose, earthy. Medium weight palate shows the same savoury earthy notes with red cherry. Great balance - nothing stands out overly. A good new world rendition of Montepuliciano with fruit from the Riverland in Australia but made at Bellwether In Coonawarra. A great accompaniment to homemade Pizza. — 2 months ago

@Anthony De Blasi Over say a hundred years Australia had welcomed many many Italian migrants to these shores. Largely all happy to work hard for a better life including In viticulture and wine making. Many adopted Sangiovese and Nebbiolo but now all kinds of Italian varietals have been grown including this Monte, Aglianico, Nerello Mascalese, Fiano etc etc. When we did vintage at Bellwether a couple of years ago I tried a Bianca d’Alessano for the first - a full bodied thick skinned white which likes warm climates and was grown again, in the Riverland. Just a cross section.

Thank you for the information, good to know! Ever had a Nerello from Australia?

Can’t say that I have Anthony. I’ve had an Australian Nero d’Avola on the odd occasion.
