Best's

Bin No 1 Great Western Shiraz 2019

Meaty, charcuterie notes together with black and blue fruits. The palate is rich and savoury - full bodied on the earthy spectrum with ripe plum. Bests are an under the radar Gem in the Grampians. It should be a regular purchase particularly at the price. An average price of around $30. — 24 days ago

No Girls Wines

La Paciencia Vineyard Syrah 2011

My choice for a Rhône style theme with my local group.

Definitely the oldest No Girls I’ve opened. As expected, these have a Burgundian flair to them in the way they are made when compared to Cayuse/HP/HC. Not as much depth/richness, but there is great acidity and the use of stems is clear. Faint ruby in the glass. Stemmy/green aromatics with herbs de Provence, black olive, Cayuse funk/iron on the nose. Saline, red and black berry driven on the palate with black pepper spice, truffle, beef jerky and big phenolics. Tart and acidic, I followed this over two days, and to my surprise, held up very well. Pop now.

Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2012

Dark rubi robe, nose of tobacco, cedar, blackcurrant and asian spices. Very elegant and complex, great now, no rush. We loved it, enthusiastically recommended in particular if you want to try Pichon Comtesse with less than 20 years. — 17 days ago
