Barrel X Saar Riesling 2015

Just concluded the annual Fall seclusion at our cabin in the Rangeley lakes region of Maine, mobile service up there is mostly non-existent, after several days I am posting again. Notes are somewhat brief, as my focus is relaxing and watching the Common Loons swimming and diving in the cove in front of our camp.

Nose has bright green apple, saline solution, distant petrol, under-ripe peach, sliced apricot, clover honey and wet flint
Palate has effervescent and tart apple juice, tart pear, under-ripe peach, green apple peel, wet limestone with solid acidity and a ever lingering sweet/salty/tart finish. A great bottle!

Les Pavots Knights Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2013

Always a fan of Les Pavots, but this is a magical vintage. It has a long bottle life ahead of it. Great structure and balance now and will get even better as it ages! — 6 days ago

Peter Martin Ray Vineyard Chardonnay 2016

Rounder and richer than I’ve come to expect from Ceritas. Still great just not as steely and chiseled as other bottlings — a month ago

'L'Esprit des Pavots' Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2013

Enjoyed the 2013 vintage. Beautiful Napa Bordeaux blend. Hitting its stride. Well balanced, complex, and high soft ripe tannins. — 17 days ago

'Ma Belle-Fille' Chardonnay 2016

9.3

This was my contribution for a big white wine theme, where all bottles were served blind.

Placed in the exact middle of the lineup, I considered this as my wine but wasn’t fully confident. Similar to the 2016 Belle Cote I opened earlier this year, I’m somewhat nicely surprised that this is as beautifully balanced as it is. Some of these wines have a reputation for “large and in charge”, but this was supremely balanced, toeing the line between Sonoma and white burgundy with richness. Aromatically it revealed sugar frosted stone fruits, white peach, caramel dipped golden delicious apples and baking spices. It has a beautifully textured palate that is almost creamy before snapping back with good acidity. Added notes on the palate of powdered lemon bar, floral honeysuckle, and whipped lemon cream. This will age effortlessly for another 7-10yrs, but it sure is giving now.

Stonewell Barossa Shiraz 2002

Dense Ruby in colour. Even after 18 years the oak presence is like the aromas of newly sawn wood. Ripe plums with a pruney note. On the palate rich and full bodied with fluid smooth tannins finishing dry. Obviously the product of very old Shiraz vines in the Barossa sourced from growers who the original Peter Lehmann had a marvellous bond with for decades. This is Peter Lehmann’s flagship red from the cool 2002 vintage resulting in a long hang time and great flavours. A Barossa Icon. — 19 days ago

Nice, I really enjoy Shiraz when it gets around this age, the strong bottles get some of their tension removed.

Agreed Severn. The Barossa (and McLaren Vale) are blessed with old Shiraz Vines which need to be cellared. Definitely their strength.

Senior Faß 6 Ayler Riesling 2019

Wow, this is delicious. Beautiful canary yellow color and The flavor is like a dry gala apple and pear juice, with subtle flavors of vanilla, its dry but tastes like it should be sweet. It's an apple and light fruit bomb with a crisp nose and is probably one of the best Riesling I've ever had. — 8 days ago
