Wendouree

AP Birks Cabernet Sauvignon 2005

Dinner at my brother Mikes place who is a complete Wendouree nut and on the hard to get onto Mailing List. This was full bodied and hugely flavoursome - perfect with slow cooked brisket on a cold night. Still concentrated at 14 years with a decade or 2 ahead of it. Avoiding the overarching Eucalyptus/Menthol Notes of many of the Cuvées from Wendouree. Black currant and a leafy note but not particularly Cab. A great drink nevertheless. — 8 days ago

Wendouree

Clare Valley Cabernet Malbec 2009

Another full bodied Wendouree from my brothers cellar. Nice and savoury with softening grainy Tannins and again the Eucalyptus kept in check. Don’t go near these Wendouree reds until at least 10 years from vintage. — 8 days ago

Adelaide Hills Shiraz 2015

Ruby with aromas of dried baked berry fruits with some floral and spice notes. On the palate black cherry with plum and sweet vanilla flavors adding in some notes of black pepper and floral tones. Lively medium+ acidity on medium tannins, full body with a bit of alcohol present, medium+ length ending with a fruit, herb and toasty character. Has potential for short term aging. Tasting Sample. — a day ago

Bird in Hand

Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir 2005

End of an era. Last bottle of these gems that I stashed away many years ago, never knowing it would be the last vintage of this wine. Obviously Bird in Hand makes bigger bucks from its sparkling, which is where the fruit now ends up. Fourteen years old and still in good shape. The nose is in full secondary mode with a combination of dried fruit (fig, cranberry, raisin) plus an animal note — perhaps barnyard or dried meat. Palate carries some primary fruit (dark cherry and plum) with a dustiness to finish. Medium bodied with a surprising weight to it. I’ve never encountered Adelaide Hills pinot quite like it, and sadly it seems I never will again. I’m happy to have had the chance! — 25 days ago

Blue Chip Clare Valley Shiraz 2004

Delectable this is actually the Gilt Edge Shiraz. I had only ever had Riesling from this maker previously The Clare Valley does both Riesling and Cabernet well ( as well as Shiraz). This was full bodied supple and mouth filling with lovely balance. Dark chocolate Mocha and dark fruits. A welcome surprise packet. This held its own with the two Wendourees to follow. — 8 days ago
