Ochota Barrels

a forest Pinot Noir 2017

I’m a big huge mega fan of Ochota. This wine has attitude and sass and carries it all off like...I don’t know maybe it’s the “the forest” name but it is like if goth-punk-pop went royal. All the red things: cherry compote rhubarb stew and some cracked peppercorn and dried branches and bramble and a texture of earth. Love it. — 4 days ago

@Ellen Clifford Interesting story a few years the Rolling Stones visited Ochota Barrels from Adelaide. As Taras Ochota tells the story 3 black 7 series BMWs came up his driveway. They stayed for lunch and had a singalong on his old piano. I

Konigsbacher Idig Großes Gewächs Riesling 2009

Pale to mid Lemon in colour. Notes of old mandarin and tropical fruit nuances - later yellow peach with medium minus acid. No doubt a top quality GG Riesling from Pfalz but a little better a couple of years ago. Unlike Australian dry Riesling I find it better to drink these German dry Riesling earlier for the freshness. JR’s drinking window was 2011 to 2015. — a month ago

Le Brut 1er Cru Champagne Blend

The best for money and thought, Margaine is something I could drink ever single day. It’s light with a fresh proofing bread, rye cracker, and crystalline citrus. — 9 days ago

Fieldwork Brewing Co.

Tundra Triple A

Fieldwork tundra triple ipa. Wow! Is this easy to drink. Perfectly balanced. Would love to try this next to the younger. Amazing hops, but what I love is the excellent malt. Highly, highly recommend. The expansion of this brewery made it loose rarity but they are still at the top of Bay Area imo. — 14 days ago

Wendouree Shiraz 2002

Another Valentines Day treat after the Ruinart. Dark dark Ruby in colour. Trademark Wendouree menthol/eucalyptus also some mint, gravel, blackberry and a tarry creosote element. On the medium to full bodied palate there are concentrated berry tarry and. Mineral flavours. Wonderful texture and tannin regime. Barb found the wine a little porty and I must admit not everyone goes gaga over Wendouree. From vines planted in 1893 and 1919. — 12 days ago
