Sometimes it happens that you know it is going to be good, but as much honestly.
Texture of an aged Bordeaux which means the most refined silk.
Hunter benchmarks like leather and dried red flowers. Pencil lead, orange and watermelon rinds plus pomegranate.
Simply an outstanding wine that I wish everyone could meet one day to understand what this region can give.
1987 is indeed a great vintage there and back in those days Wyndham Estate was still up to its reputation.
George Wyndham planted the Dalwood vineyard back in 1830 with the plants handed to him by James Busby and apparently that was the first established vineyard in Australia.

On the back label it says "Peak 1990-1995" and 11,8% alcohol.
Garnet colour, very complex at the nose: pomegranate, rose, carob, balsamic, talc powder, star anise, leather, liquorice, caramelised tomatoes. There is a sweetness that gives elegance like in the good aged Bordeaux.
At the palate it is perfectly clean, fresh, persistent with a silky tannin. Wine in balance not fading at all. Wyndham Estate must have been a very serious producer in those years🔝👍 — 7 years ago
Good merlot with sophisticated jammy and plummy on palate, juicy well-oaked and more plummy blackfruit-sweet on note 🌈. Double the rainbow and feel the purple 💐 — 4 years ago

Très bon rouge corsé, fruité et goûteux. — 7 years ago
Perfect summer picnic or BBQ red. Serve chilled. Ripe mulberry, blueberry, vanillin oak, and spice all wrapped in a bubbly body. — 7 years ago
