Avance Tasmania Pinot Noir

Wonderful Tasmanian Pinot Noir. Light gorgeous colour, wonderful fruit on the nose (strawberries, cherries, blackberry, black currant) with a wonderful sweet and spicy medium bodied taste - very silky tannins. Extraordinary value — 9 months ago


Godolphin Barossa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz 2004

Showing more primary fruitnotes than expected. Hardly any secondaries yet and the flavor profile comes across as slightly confectionary...
My last bottle (3 years ago...) showed more evolution and therefore a better balance.

Anaperenna Cabernet Sauvignon-Shiraz Blend 2007

2007. Decanted for four hours (because we were enjoying two other great wines). Tannins are totally smoothed out, but the fruit (dark plums?) is so delicious with a prime filet. — 4 months ago


G.A.M. McLaren Vale Shiraz 2005

2005 Vintage. From Magnum. Winemaker Ben Glaetzer made a big wine that needed time and this was singing at the party as well. — a year ago

Bishop Barossa Valley Shiraz

소믈리에의 추천을 받아 주문한 호주 남부 Barossa Valley 의 100% Shiraz 와인. 첫 향은 코를 찌르는 후추향. 그리고 약간 달콤한 베리향. 첫모금은 피노누아 처럼 달콤한가? 싶더니 금세 묵직한 바디감과 탄닌감이 느껴진다. 두번째 잔은 역시나 훨씬 부드럽다. 여운이 꽤나 길고 무척 맛있다고 느낀 와인이다. zalto 잔에 마셔서 더 그런가...🙄 — 4 months ago

Woodcutter's Barossa Valley Shiraz 2016

Solid Shiraz from Torbeck. Some spice, dark fruit and slightly earthy a bit like a Chateauneuf du Pape. Easy drinking and good value for money. It’s great that the Aussie producers have a full spectrum of the same varietals for people to enjoy. Torbeck, Two Hands, Penfolds and Glaetzer all have great options at multiple price points. — 4 months ago

Downs Club

The Members Premium Red Blend 2008

Firstly to explain the label. 24 years ago when I was Wine Chairman at the Downs Club I copied the Yalumba concept of honouring people who had done a great job for the company. 8 years ago the Club decided to honour the contribution of my brother Mike - hence this label. Prior to Mike there have been 8 ex Presidents recognised in this way. The Wine itself is a 2008 Glaetzer Heartland Shiraz from Langhorne Creek. This is the 11th bottle of a dozen and easily the best. Medium bodied with M - Tannins and Acid. Mature plum and chocolate flavours. Interestingly the back label says cellar for up to 5 years!! What do they know! This over delivers in spades at 10 years of age. A wonderful surprise. I will leave the last one for a family occasion. — a year ago

@Anthony De Blasi @TheSkip @Peter van den Besselaar The current release Downs Club Premium Red has my dial on the label so I must do a review at some stage after I do Dr Greg Bookless who was honoured after my brother Mike.
