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. — 16 hours ago
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
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
Drank at Stone Grill. House wine. Fresh and dry with citrus. Not acidic. — 12 days ago
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
Watermelon, green strawberry and lots of flowers. Honey. Pepper on the back end. Really nice. — 4 days ago
Stone fruit, light citrus, creamy texture. Well balanced. — 2 days ago
