David's Block Pinot Blanc 2021

Another great year. This Pinot blanc sells out each year and I was lucky they had a couple bottles left for me to purchase. It has a melon and lemon finish and is crisp! — 3 days ago

Clonakilla

Shiraz Viognier 2007

My last bottle of 4 and I was lucky to get 4 bottles when it was released. Only 1800 made due to frost destroying 92% of the crop. That apricot note from the Viognier, in its youth has integrated. Lovely savoury spicy aromas - like an Arabian Spice Bazaar as Halliday once described this Cuvée from Clonakilla. Amazing intensity with spice and dried sweet herb. Long considered the benchmark for Shiraz Viognier in this country. Perhaps challenged by Yarra Yering Dry Red No. 2 on occasions. — a month ago

The only vintage I haven't got/had. 😢 Was living overseas at the time and by the time the order form got to me, it was all was gone. I actually wrote to Tim suggesting in a small vintage that they limited supply so that everyone on the mailing list was guaranteed at least one bottle. He very kindly wrote back an explanatory letter. 👍😊

Yes, he is a very nice bloke and tries to please. Studied to become a priest prior to becoming a winemaker after his father started Clonakilla.

Found this and the ‘14 yesterday. I thought the ‘14 was awesome but the ‘15 is even better. Lucky for me I have 5 bottles of each remaining. Just subtle lemon notes and mouth watering acidity. — 9 days ago

Nice purchase!

Roman Ceremony

Santa Ynez Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2021

Pretty fantastic. Light and fresh, perfect acidity. Got lucky and had with a mushroom/artichoke pasta and it was the perfect pairing. Should be a regular. — 16 days ago

Evolution Lucky No. 9 White Blend 2019

Love the floral, tropical nose here. Yes it’s off-dry but plenty of tension to keep things lively. Very good Indian or Thai food wine. Strong QPR Costco #oregon white blend. — 2 months ago

That is one really enjoyable bottle. I love the color of aged white burgundy. Was lucky to find a bottle from my first daughters birth year today. Had to get it and enjoy with her on a visit home. Pineapple aromas with a lemon kicker and honey on the finish. — 3 days ago

Rosé of Pinot Noir 2021

Another excellent year. Melon and lemon finish, and crisp! This is always sold out each year and I was lucky that they had a couple bottles left, and I took them! — 3 days ago

Ayler Kupp Schonfels Faß 11 Riesling 2013

2018 is nice four years later. Some good white apricot on the palate. As it opened up more stone fruits became apparent. Not too heavy on the petrol. Good acidity. Good match for the white people’s Asian food at Ramsey’s Lucky Cat on Grosvenor Square — a month ago
