Ok peeps, many people have asked for more deets regarding our little cellar...
1.8m x 0.6m x 2.25m. The floor is Portuguese black slate (1cm thick). Floor, walls and ceiling are insulated with high-density foam, which has a low thermal conductivity. Chiller is housed remotely. Ducting pulls clean air from outside, and dumps exhaust air outside. Basically, everything is custom - my design, and a great contractor realized our dream.
@Mo Salem was instrumental with renovating our home, and the germ of the idea came from him.
This wine big and bold. Visually show its age. Cinnamon, cloves and pepper define the nose and palate. The oak monster is evident on the mid palate. Great tannins and complimentary acidity. This will sail on for another 5 years, but best consumed now.

Two more important points peeps, all the walls are backed with 3/4” plywood to support the racks, etc. all sheetrock within the cellar is green, due to the high humidity.

Church Block McLaren Vale Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2015

This really surprised me (I didn’t know anything about wirra wirra, shame on me)...so delicately structured with dark berries prunes roast pears and warm spices and a touch of herbaceousness that just bleed out with lemon zest. — 3 days ago

Disco Special Grenache Shiraz

Funky fresh pizzazz this deceptively complex wine. One I could drink on the reg. Alive and full of character. Well balanced. Medium acidity, loose tannins, medium bodied that errs on the lighter side. Earth and berry twist. Might as well get your disco ball out — 9 days ago
