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. — 6 years 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.

Pretty darn good. Spice. Lingering finish. Good stuff. — 6 years ago


Villa Fidelia Rosso Merlot Blend 2012

Surprisingly silky smooth Bordeaux blend with that little rustic kick that only a place like Umbria (or anywhere in the Italian heartland) can bring to the table. Reminds me why I need to occasionally get out of my Etna, Piemonte, Toscana bubble — 7 years ago

Gran Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Graciano 2015

In the Rioja heartland now so no more Champagne for a while. This amazingly comes with a fixed prices menu where you get a lot of amazing food at the price you would pay for this wine in the US — 6 years ago
