Coonawarra Project Shiraz 2018


Yes we understand that you’re looking for a new definition of #coonawarra #shiraz but...don’t try so hard and ...2018 with only 6 measly months in oak and direct to market...could it be less expensive? I was left a little limp and confused. — 5 hours ago

Brut OG Esprit d'Auteur Grand Cru Champagne Blend

This is the Fûtile cuvée. Reductive to start off. Needs some 20 min air to shine, and it does! Low dosage of 1g. Wood is well integrated now. Bought this at the domaine some two/three years ago. Not aware of dégorgement date but at least 2-3 years ago. — 17 days ago

Quality Chablis for a budget-friendly price. Saline, round, notes of tart green pear and lemon zest. Guest was very pleased. — 4 days ago

Olivier Leflaive

Enseignères Puligny-Montrachet Chardonnay 2017

Olivier Leflaive was formed in 1984 by Olivier and his brother Patrick. Pale lemon with aromas of stone fruits and nutty toasty citrus notes. On the palate apple and pear flavors with lemon rind, complex with vanilla and mineral tones on the lingering finish. Very Nice! Tasting well. — a month ago

Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Layered and intense: spearmint, eucalyptus, graphite, crushed stone, cedar, cigar, fresh and dried blackcurrant, cassis, blackberry, sweet baking spices, black olives, and dried bay leaves. High levels of smooth tannins is well balanced by medium+ acidity and concentration. Medium+ finish. — 4 days ago

Patrick Jasmin

Côte-Rôtie Syrah 2010

This remains a very feminine styled wine (as I recall from a bottle a few years ago). Nose requires some time to unfold, but eventually shows lots of lively crushed granite, cracked black peppercorns, blackberry skins, and a slight cured meat note. Lean and medium-bodied in the mouth, with savory, minerally flavors and crisp acids. It’s light but flavorful, and seems to have plenty of life left. — 18 days ago

La Chevaliere 2016

An under 20$ northern Syrah ( actually 99% Syrah/1% viognier). Bright and absolutely charming with some of that meaty teeth you would expect from Northern Rhone Syrah. — 24 days ago

The Cover Drive Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Nose of red currant, plum, meat, eucalyptus, and smoke. Much the same on the palate. Quite a lot of blackberry and sour plum acidity, especially for this varietal. Pretty soft tannin and a bit of alcohol heat on the finish. I'm digging these ripe bit elegant "New Australia" wines. — 2 days ago

Domaine Jasmin Cuvee Olea Cote-Rotie Syrah Viognier 2016

3 hrs in a wide-bottom decanter before tasting. A **stunning** bottle of Cote Rotie. On the nose: oak influence at first, but a few swirls and and that is overtaken by a heavenly and musky wild strawberry and blackberry perfume, then some citrus blossom, and as the fruit recedes a bit, it blends into a kind of vanilla compote. On the palate, fantastic acidity and hi-toned, while being weightless and simultaneously dense...just dances on the palate with lemon and sweet blackberry, and a soft leathery tang. Wow, this is unbelievable for being this young. While this might shut down, if it doesn't, I can't imagine how this could ever not be compelling. — 19 days ago

Balnaves of Coonawarra

The Tally Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

As per previous notes. Dense crimson in colour. Cedar, blackberry and geranium. To borrow HH’s phrase “effortless style”. Demonstrates why Coonawarra’s red dirt is marvellous for Cabernet. 96% Cabernet 4% Petit Verdot. The Tally is the top Cuvée from Balnaves. Rich, medium to full bodied. — 2 months ago
