Eden Valley

Henschke

Hill of Grace Vineyard Shiraz 1998

An icon of Australian Red wine. Unfortunately a strong whiff of H2S on the Nose. I have struck this problem previously with also Henschke Mount Edelstone on a couple of occasions. The hallmark of this wine has always been its beautiful supple silky tannins with flavours of plum and raspberry. Tannins totally resolved. The product of a 140 year single vineyard in the Eden Valley. Unfortunately prices these days have gone through the roof. I hope we don’t encounter the H2S in subsequent bottles. — 15 days ago

The perfect example of wine being alive in a bottle; this 1998 vintage continues to evolve, hours after opening. Have patience with this initially coy 21 year old; allow him to find his feet and settle into the year of 2019 before making your final judgements. Opens like Bambi and finishes like a Red Deer. Tobacco, Manuka honey, and stewed raspberries on the nose. Followed with a dense, spicy, fruit cake on the palate. Would love to taste another of the same vintage in 5-years.

Mount Eden Vineyards

Estate Bottled Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir 2008

A beautiful Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot. Dark cherries, orange zest, subtle spices, and a hint of mushroom. Considerable weight and power on the mid-palate. — 2 days ago

Very dry, intense minerality. Like sucking on a river rock. — 14 days ago

Keyneton Mount Edelstone Vineyard Shiraz 2005

This grapey, ever-so-slightly syrupy juice delighted everyone with its grace and restrained power. Wow. — 4 days ago

Eden Road

Canberra Shiraz 2012

Love these cool climate Shirazes from Canberra District. A riot of white pepper and spice. Medium bodied with earthy minerality with some charcuterie notes. Short term cellaring from this point — 11 days ago

Dandelion Vineyards

Wonderland of the Eden Valley Riesling

Powerful aromatics that speak to Aussie Riesling... Key lime, grapefruit, lemon zest, and petrol - think fresh tennis balls. Bounding acidity meets ripe, juicy tropical fruit, as this maintains a dry, lasting finish. Paired with spicy curry, but would also go great poolside in the summer. Fun fact: Vineyard planted in 1912. Outstanding effort. 11% ABV — 22 days ago

Torbreck Vintners

The Gask Shiraz 2013

Excellent shiraz from Torbreck, we got this at the winery during an awesome wine trip down under in December 2016. Doesn’t have the depth and complexity of their higher-end stuff, but is drinking really well right now. Great notes of blueberries, blackberries, along with hints of dark chocolate. Balanced, with a nice finish. Not obvious that this is going to improve a lot, so probably worth drinking sooner rather than later. — 22 days ago

18 years old, and drinking beautifully now, but could be put back down for another 18 years comfortably. — 13 hours ago

Grosset-Hill Smith

Mesh Riesling 2006

Just slipping into maturity but still showing kerosene and crisp acidity of youth. Some lovely aged rich characters on the mid- back palate. Another 10 years at least possible but drinking beautifully now. — 20 days ago
