Hickinbotham

Brooks Road Shiraz 2013

Wow. A reminder that I need to drink more Aussie Shiraz. Show stopping aromas of baked, spiced, black plum, campfire smoke, blackberries and black currant, date, bay leaf, licorice, cedar, leather, mocha, eucalyptus, with the slightest hint of something raw, feral and a little filthy that I like in my Syrah, but that most new world examples miss. Round, full and silky on the palate. A powerful, riper and higher alcohol expression of Syrah for sure, but balanced and exquisite as the best big wines are. — 8 days ago

Tapanappa

Foggy Hill Vineyard Pinot Noir 2013

Quite a novelty enjoying this one at Deep Creek, just a short distance away from Foggy Hill and Tapanappa Campground. Interesting phase of development. It’s a little stern but full of interest. Intriguing if not seductive. Cherry and musk stick aromas, touch of wood, some dried fruit on the palate, a little autumnal. Quite a firm, drying finish. — 21 days ago

The Fugazi Vineyard Grenache 2017

Alder Yarrow
9.2

I’m sad I never got to meet Taras Ochotoa of @ochotabarrels (RIP). I’ve enjoyed his wines over the years, including this incredibly fresh and bright and lean rendition of Grenache that is far closer to Cerasuolo than to Châteauneuf. Herbal and sour cherry notes transition to strawberry and red currant sourness tinged with dried herbs and flowers. Angular, prominent acidity and barely any tannins to speak of. A fun, gulpable wine that is great with a slight chill on it. ⁣ — 23 days ago

Famille Dutraive

Lieu dit les Déduits Fleurie Gamay 2019

We’re pausing on goodness and hope today. We hold so much gratitude in our hearts for our loved ones and their presence in our lives. We want to share a heartfelt thanks to you all who’ve supported and inspired us day in and day out. 🙏🙏💕💕

Today we had a vegan Thanksgiving bowl of roasted carrots, acorn squash, brussels sprouts, and broccoli, along with mashed yams, potatoes, toasted pecans, pomegranate, cranberry sauce (with orange zest), and thyme-spiced gravy. 🍁🍁🍁

With it we paired a couple of options each of which went well with the flavors, textures, and elements of the meal… here’s the Gamay…

Famille Dutraive, Fleurie Lieu Dit, Les Deduits 2019. ABV 14.5%. Organically farmed, old vine gamay. Intensely fruity with an abundance of bright cherry, strawberry, cranberry, banana, kirsch on the nose and palate, with noteworthy acidity, high alcohol, soft tannins and notes of vanilla, cinnamon, developed while aging 6 months in oak. Whole cluster, carbonic fermentation 👏👏

@Delectable Wine this is from Beaujolais not South Australia…
