Mid Lemon in colour. Paraffin/Kerosene aromas are dominant on the nose with white flowers, mineral, and over ripe Apple. Palate shows orange rind and citrus in general with a honeyed note. Medium bodied yet full of flavour, medium plus intensity and also retaining a refreshing finish. In summary, a wonderful aged Clare Valley Riesling at its peak. It’s a close run thing but on the strength of this I’m starting to prefer aged Clare Valley Riesling over aged Eden Valley Riesling narrowly. — a month ago
Smokey cherry fragrance and taste. Can be a bit intense at first but smooth finish. September 2020. — 4 days ago
Mount Eden’s 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon represents the essence of what Cabernet Sauvignon is all about in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Deep, powerful and explosive, the 2016 simply has it all. A wine of tremendous depth and intensity. Readers, take note. This is world class Cabernet Sauvignon that in any other region would cost 2-3 times as much. Savory and expansive, with tons of mountain character and remarkable richness from low yields in 2016, the Cabernet Sauvignon is simply off the charts. It’s another utterly breathtaking wine from Mount Eden. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, September 2020)

Opened it a bit too early. Still has many years until it reaches its peak. Lovely full bodied, deep rich color. Tobacco, leather, peppermint and licorice and spices. — 13 days ago
Quite dense crimson in colour for its age. Notes of Menthol/Eucalyptus and aniseed typical of Wendouree. A full bodied palate- earthy, berry, mineral with a tarry note. Might be a 19 year old wine but there is so much latent energy and power it will go on for some years yet. I will drink my last one in 2 to 3 years and if I have the willpower should be 4 to 5 years. Will go the distance. — 12 days ago
Rosé and comfort food - heck yes! Growing up my mum made ‘sausage swirls’ which are pastry, sausage, potato and cheese swirls. And now they’re my go-to comfort food - however I add a jar of jalapeños 🌶 for a bit of a kick 🙌
I thought they’d be a great match to this bottle of Lansdowne 2019 Pinot Rosé which we were sent as a sample from Good Pair Days (thanks guys!).
Only a small quantity of this wine was made (177 cases in fact) due to extreme weather conditions that year.
If you want to give it a whirl, and/or try out the Good Pair Days experience, make sure to add the code “travellingcorkscrew” for a discount at the checkout 😉
I felt like I was watching the sunset 🌅 as the red-y orange like liquid was poured into my glass. On the nose it had me thinking about wild strawberries 🍓, tangerine and pink grapefruit. While in the mouth it’s smooth and hella delicious. Refreshing, comforting and bloody yum.
This wine was sent to me as a sample, I was under no obligation to post about it. By using the above promo code I will receive a small amount of commission.

Big bruising style of pinot. Dark cherry, plum, and earthy notes on the nose. Palate is med/full bodied with power and weight. A cab shiraz in pinot clothing. Very good though. — 17 days ago
