i am the owl Syrah 2018

A few wines from last week’s 4th Friday event!

This was crazy unique. Can’t believe this is a 2018 Syrah from Australia. Make no mistake, this is more “Syrah” than it is “Shiraz”. As if you mixed a northern Rhône Syrah (think crozes-hermitage) with a Cru Beaujolais. Stemmy, carbonic, and very pure aromatically. The sub 12ABV is crazy. The palate shows some iron, sweet tar, black currant and peppercorn crusted rhubarb. Fun.

Adrestia Adelaide Hills Sémillon Sauvignon Blanc

Great balance and long finish. A lot of things to taste in this wine from butterscotch to lime zest to applepie. From butter to hay. WoW. — 4 hours ago

Penfolds

Max's Adelaide Hills Chardonnay 2015

Mid Lemon in colour. Quite a complex yet correct modern Chardonnay showing grapefruit and nuts. This ticks all the boxes and punches above its weight for $40. Shows again how the Adelaide Hills is an excellent district for Chardonnay. I hope the recent bushfires up there have not been too damaging @Scott Rowe Named in honour of Max Schubert who was Penfolds winemaker from 1948 to 1975 and the creator of Grange. — 20 days ago

Thank you for your thoughts @Bob McDonald!
V20 will be tough for growers and the smaller guys.
Many great vineyards have been impacted including those we work with and purchase from.
Time will tell if heat from the recent fire originating in Cudlee Creek mixed with smoke from the still burning Kangaroo Island will hurt us directly.
The hills wine industry is a tight operation so it will effect us all in some respect.

Ashton Hills Vineyard

Piccadilly Valley Pinot Noir

Mid Ruby turning tawny. Spicy perfume, a hint of violet, and with time notes of Rhubarb. On the palate easy power and intensity with red cherry and plum flavours. I have always enjoyed this Pinot Noir from when I first tasted it at a restaurant in Canberra 7 or so years ago. — 19 days ago
