Mclaren Vale, Fleurieu

Ochota Barrels

The Fugazi Vineyard Grenache 2019

Crisp, cool, tart, stemmy and fresh.
Raspberries, cranberries, mineral funk, peppery and spicy garrigue and cold rocks (if that makes any sense…), as opposed to the hot terracotta tiles I often get in many other Grenaches.
This has a very cool-climate feel to it, rather delicate and refreshing. Like a Bojo from Oz. Lovely!

South Australia Shiraz 2020

Cedar, pie spice, cigar tobacco, black pepper, faint hint of green bell pepper, jammy black fruit on the nose. Cranberry, plum, chewy red cherry, juicy mouthfeel with short finish but a bit of smoke and hint of black pepper lingering. Good one for food; should be perfect with pasta marinara or pizza. — 24 days ago

That’s my kinda SB


@Turd Ferguson Adelaide Hills seems like the Sierra Foothills of Australia. So much baller natural wine coming out of there. This was imported by Vine Street, but Tess Bryant Selections has been my go to for this style wine from Oz. Kinda spendy for what it is but it’s all been super fkin delicious.


The Dead Arm McLaren Vale Shiraz 2008

Dark Ruby in colour - almost black and impenetrable. Notes of creosote, stewed black and red fruits and a note of crushed ant which is not meant to be disparaging. Grainy Tannins resolving with a pruney note on the medium to full bodied palate. I haven’t always enjoyed the Dead Arm but this was a beauty. The first of 3. — 25 days ago

Ironheart McLaren Vale Shiraz 2010

3/6/9.5 = 18.5 out of 100 say 94
Strong tannins and plenty of acid will keep the fruit flavours going for some time. Well integrated and very pleasant drinking.
