Great Southern, South West Australia

Cape Mentelle

Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

Herbaceous, mint, stalks, with a walnut note together with red florals as in roses verging to a violet note. The medium weight palate shows sweet berry and cassis - just enough opulence to carry the savoury notes. Resolved tannins. Drinking at its peak at 13 years of age although could sit on the plateau for 5 plus years. An excellent example of aged Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon (100%) from a great producer. — 6 days ago

Bin 389 South Australia Cabernet Shiraz 2017

Referred to as the “Baby Grange,” blend of about 50/50 Cab Sauv & Shiraz, aged for 12 months in American oak, partly in previous-vintage Grange casks. Dark Ruby with aromas of ripe black fruits, sweet and complex spice. On the palate juicy blackberry flavors with notes of cacao and toasty spices. Well balanced with acidity, full ripe tannins, long ending with smoky spice, fruit well integrated with oak, drink over next 10 years+, will only get better. Consistent with ‘16 I just tried. — 9 days ago

Mudgee Durif 2008

Dense Ruby, almost black - noticed it when decanting. Notes of blackberry, tar/creosote, liquorice, smoke. Powerful savoury and dark chocolate and fruit flavours. A very rich full bodied winter wine - a great match for Beef Curry finishing with robust grainy tannins. Made from the Durif grape which originated in the south of France and known as Petit Sirah in other parts of the world. This wine from the Mudgee district just north west of the Hunter Valley - home of big reds and little known outside of Australia. — a month ago

Forest Hill Vineyard

Block 9 Shiraz 2017

We bought this at the cellar door in Mt Barker WA in early January on a trip over there before COVID hit and state borders were closed. First of 6. Dark Ruby in colour. Very peppery on nose and palate with touches of cinnamon - fruit is in the plum spectrum. Drinking this rather young - it will develop more complexity. I personally love this Northern Rhone style. — a month ago

Wonderful. It amazes me how youthful this is - as in, just seems to be hitting its drinking window - at 25 years. A long finish and still plenty of tannins. — 6 days ago

Premium Vintage Rosé Blend

Extroverted elegance! Quite a bit of white nectarine/strawberry purée softly spread on toast and dipped in cream. Or mayhaps that it just feels like cream. Really the texture on this is exquisite. It is wearing elbow length gloves with a fuchsia satin dress and pearls. This wine is. Or maybe that’s what I feel like I’m wearing drinking it. — 9 days ago

Margaret River Chardonnay 2016

Great expression of place.
Margs is renowned for its Sem/Sav and Cabernets but the Chardy is world class also.
