Coonawarra Chardonnay 2020

Bought this in a 6 pack at the Cellar door in Coonawarra a few weeks ago after doing vintage at Bellwether. Bright and fresh with well balanced stone fruit, pear and nutty notes with medium minus acid. Made to be drunk young - cellar if you wish for 2 or 3 years maximum. Great value at $100 for the 6 pack including freight from SA. — 16 days ago

Bin 128 Coonawarra Shiraz 1998

Amazing to buy a 23 year old Penfolds Bin 128 as good as this for $125 - only at Penfolds HQ at Magill Estate Adelaide. Still the Penfolds DNA of Choc Malt Mocha on this lovely old Shiraz. Dusty plummy notes, some old wood and leather notes. Tannins resolved - everything balanced. Shows the quality and ability to age of all Penfolds Cuvées. — a month ago

Terra Rossa First Growth Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 1996

Tasting of nine 1996 Cabernets, Merlots and Bordeaux blends from California, Bordeaux and Australia. The Jalapeño pepper gave it away as Aussie. #6 — 17 days ago

Phoenix Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon

Points for sheer complexity even if not my style. Loads of bell pepper, eucalyptus, bay leaf, pencil shavings, and blackberries. Needs time or rich food. It’s a lot of wine for $25. — 20 days ago

Wratton Bully Whalebone Vineyard Merlot Cabernet Franc 2012

Sumptuous. Rich and soft and ripe and dense with a palate that lingers long. Fruit cake and Cherry Ripe with savoury notes and deeper complexity. Some brighter red fruit notes sitting on top of dark stewed fruit and spice. Gorgeous wine in an Australian style. — 16 hours ago

The Tally Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 1998

Tres Bon mate, tres bon. This bottle at 23 years old was absolutely in the sweet spot. The tannins were fully integrated, acid was spot on and the fruit was perfectly aged. Tremendously drinkable. I personally wouldn't have picked it as a Coonawarra, but what would I know? Either way, I'm so happy when you age a top wine and it comes out of the bottle like this. Lovely. — 10 days ago
