Eden Road

The Long Road BdX Canberra District Red Bordeaux Blend 2009

Interesting blend of 57% Canberra district Merlot, 41% Clare Valley Malbec and 2% Petit Verdot. Mulberry, Vanilla and Tobacco notes. A slight touch of H2S which did not blow off and did not effect the palate. A very mellow palate with very soft resolved Tannins. This went perfectly with Pasta and Tomato savoury home made sauce. I usually don’t rate Aussie Merlot predominant blends but this was more than acceptable — 24 days ago

Pewsey Vale Vineyard

Individual Vineyard Selection Eden Valley Riesling 2018

White peach, cool steel, gardenia, melon, lemon rind on the nose. Cantaloupe, honeysuckle, lime zest on the palate. Refreshing finish with notes of tangerine, white pepper, and mushroom on the finish. Lovely light-bodied pale lemon-colored white great for a summer sipper with pasta salads, green salads, and seafood. — 10 days ago

Hill of Grace Vineyard Shiraz 1998

Great combination. Cloudburst has to be the closest Chard to a high end white burgundy outside of France. This 2013 was spectacular, with electric minerality. The 1998 Hill of Grace is claimed to be one of the 3 best Australian vintages (along with 02 and 06). Whoever says that Australian wines can’t age is just dead wrong! Anyway, tasted like an aged cuvée CDP and the depth and structure was just outstanding. — 25 days ago

Wow. This is aged Australian Shiraz at its finest. So rich, dense, voluptuous and flavor packed...all at 17/18 yrs old! As it was being poured, you could smell the eucalyptus/mint notes from half a table away. Incredibly perfumed, alongside dark chocolate covered cherries and blue and black fruit compote. On the palate it retained the Andes mint-like sweetness with black cherry liqueur, tar, mixed berry pie and fig. Sporting an ABV of 16.5% (!), it didn’t come across hot at all. Powered through being open a couple hours without a problem. No rush here. Fantastic! Thanks for sharing @joe leatherwood . — 4 days ago

@Shay A One of my favourite Barossa Shiraz. Had a 1998 once which was memorable. Not cheap but ticks all the boxes as your detailed tasting note covers. Great stuff.

Did the Creator touch this land and turn this bottling into wine?

Gods country & Jesus wine.

Perfect mouthfeel & purity, gorgeous, delicate, soft citrus, round, waxy, honeysuckle, amazing, perfect, beautiful chalkiness, elegant, grey minerality, some of the best acidity & incredible balance in a wine I’ve had. The finish is in the theatre of, “Forget About It.” WOTN.

Very Burgundian and better than many I’ve enjoyed for less💰.

Photos of, the harvest time view of the valley floor from the property, open top fermenting Pinot Noir grapes, my property walk & talking w/owner Nigel Greening (amazing time with an amazing person/producer and outside concrete ranks...it’s an even warm to cool growing season that translates into a long fruit hang-time, amazing fruit & acidity.

Amazing. So well balanced. Thanks for sharing!

Gargiulo Vineyards

Money Road Ranch Merlot 2014

A 93 now with upside potential. Probably should have left this alone for 2-3 years even after a 30 minute decant. Dirty raspberry pie and black cherry marmelade. Rather sweet open. Herbal middle. Finishes a little off balance but still very full bodied and grippy. Mostly dirty red fruit dominated. Really good but I can imagine how complex this will be in about 5 years. HOLD these. — 16 days ago

Steinert Flaxman Valley Shiraz 2018

This is an exceptional inaugural release from Callum Powell and his Agricola label. It’s pure and bright with ample flesh and some beautiful Flaxmanns Valley concentration. Merv Steinert’s old vines made up the core of Rockford’s SVS Flaxmann in the day and they have a happy home here - 2018 — 21 days ago
