Estate Bottled Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir 2008

I really love this Pinot. Beautiful fresh red fruit up front with a super silky mouth feel. Ethereal and weightless. I think it has many more great years ahead of it. — 18 hours ago

@Bryan Kesting I think you will be very happy with them. No hurry to open them, but I bet they are getting into a nice zone.

Eldredge Vineyards

Clare Valley Riesling 2009

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

Mount Eden Vineyards

Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Delectable Wine
9.8

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)

El Ixsir Syrah Blend 2011

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

Wendouree Shiraz 2001

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

@Ira Schwartz Yes I realised you meant Wendouree. Surprised that any bottles made their way to the US. Good to see.

@@Bob McDonald it was in the early 2000’s . My guess they were buying random bottles from Australian collectors who may have relocated to LA.

Probably right Ira.

Lansdowne Vineyard

Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir Rosé 2018

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.

All opinions are based on my own taste buds. Wine is subjective & always evolving, so make sure you drink what you enjoy!

Yumi Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir

9.3% Natty Pinot Noir from Adelaide Hills. Serious hipster vibes, uncarbonated White Claw, and I don’t mean that in a bad way. Burger wine, picnic wine, red solo cup driving around town wine. — 3 days ago

Hare Hunter Pinot Noir Single Vineyard Eden Valley Barossa 2018

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
