United & Undaunted Mourvedre Shiraz 2016

Came across this little beauty when judging at the Toowoomba Wine Show a couple of years ago. 100% Mourvèdre. Deep dark crimson with dusty meaty aromas. Blackberry and unusually sweet on the palate. A new world Aussie take on Mourvèdre from an ultra boutique boutique winery in the Geographe district of WA. Only 394 bottles made. More sweet than the savoury examples from Bandol. Medium to full bodied. — 12 days ago

Clarendon Hills

Astralis Syrah 2006

Rich decadent old vine aromas Blackberry, Herbal Prune and Liquorice aromas. In a blind tasting this screams old vine Australian Shiraz. From 95 year old vines planted in McLaren Vale. Full bodied, balanced with silky smooth Tannins. One of 22 wines in the Langtons Exceptional Category along with the usual suspects like Grange and Hill of Grapes. I have tasted this wine before but this is the first bottle I have shared. Not easy to find even in Australia but worth seeking out. — 15 days ago

Nice bottle! It's not easily found in this hemisphere either.

Barossa Syrah 2015

Always a winner. BlackBerry, dark cherry, dark cherry juice, pickled black fruits, olive and pepper. A touch over medium bodied. Tannins are ripe and shapely, acidity supporting beautifully. Modern Barossa. — 21 hours ago

Margaret Barossa Sémillon 2005

Citrus and Beeswax aromas getting honeyed nuances at 14 years. Fuller on the palate raising it to medium bodied but still lively. Different to old Hunter Valley Semillon. A marvellous drink showing the longevity of Semillon and another multi trophy winner on the Australian Show Circuit. — 11 days ago

The Steading Red Rhone Blend 2014

It is a hot sticky night here in the Chicago area and I have opened the 2014 Torbreck "The Steading" Barossa Valley Rhone Blend. 77% Grenache, 15% Mataro and 8% Shiraz.

The nose reveals black cherry, raspberry, anise, cinnamon, spice, herbs, violet and smokey oak.

The palate is very savory, a little heavy on the oak, strawberry, black cherry, black pepper, licorice, violets and earth.

This wine is medium to full bodied, velvety with medium acidity and medium + gripping tannins that lead to a long smokey peppery finish. Have a wonderful weekend and please be safe. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Moscato

Drank this a few years ago and rated it a bit lower. They must have stepped up their game because this is one of the tastiest moscatos out there. Sweet (not too sweet) and smooth. Perfect for summer. Award-winning and I can see why. — a day ago

Cuvee de Chez Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2012

Underwhelming, plush but soft, lacks structure, acid feels added not natural. — a day ago
