Adelaide Hills Shiraz 2012

This developed positively from previous tastings here on Delectable. My brief notes - Liquorice; more savoury than fruit driven - Bacon, Charcuterie, spicy notes on the nose and medium weight palate. Some pepper. Very Northern Rhone in style. Certainly built for the long haul. I have 2 left - next in 2024. — 2 months ago

Hanlin Hill Riesling 2012

A trace of cumquat together with dried white flowers, talc some toast together with citrus. A superb 10 year old Clare Valley Riesling from a quality producer in a good vintage. No TDN Kerosene notes. — 2 months ago

Adelaide HIlls Syrah 2013

The 2014 Jimmy Watson winner, and what a ripper it is. Needed a decant and a good splash to open up and reveal all the blue and black berry fruit and spice that made this such an enticing wine in its youth. Elegant, savoury and delicious! — 2 months ago

Shiraz 2001

Dense dark Ruby - call it black. Ripe plum, dark chocolate and the trademark menthol/eucalypt notes. Rich and full bodied. If you were blind tasting this you would never say this was 21 years old. After a while in the decanter red fruits became apparent - the profound intensity remained. A freak of a wine from vineyards, some of which date back to the 1890s. — a month ago

Cherry Fields Dolcetto 2020

What a delightful bottle - great balance of black cherry, raspberry, plum and violet aromas with forest floor, mishroom, and leather. Wonderful acidity supporting the medium body and soft, velvety tannins. Fruity, fresh and great finesse. Clare Valley Dolcetto rocks — 2 months ago

Wendouree Clare Valley Shiraz Malbec 1998

24 years old and still brick red and vibrant. The nose is unmistakably Malbec but the Cabernet sings on the long palate. The depth of flavor is remarkable with soft grippy tannins shining. — 3 months ago
