Fluus Red Rhone Blend 2018

Things change. The texture is stunning and just so supple and the plushest of tannins. Switches from spicy and dried leather to generous red fruits- raspberry and cherry coulis. An absolute blast — 9 months ago

Timaeus Grenache Blend

This wine. Priced at 29 I couldn't believe it, but turns out it was miss labelled. Dried florals, thyme amongst other herbs, cherry, pepper and just ripe plums. Not only intoxicating on the nose. It entirely seductive in the palate with length only many could envy with a supple but ever present tannin that provides the supporting role. One of a few hanging the mindset of Barossa wine and its all for the greater good. — 4 years ago

Solumodo Eden Valley Sémillon Blend

Very interesting bottle. Dried fruit all over the nose along with some dried flowers and spice. Nose and palate are not congruent. Niche wine but worth trying. — 2 years ago

How much did it change? (That is a really sweet experiment!)

This sure was fun to taste Ben, it looked, smelt and felt similar to a fresh bottle but the palate was much softer and rounder. It almost felt like it was melting away in the mouth. Great fun to taste and surely signals a long future ahead for these in the cellar!
