Mount Edward

Norman Hardie

Unfiltered Prince Edward County Pinot Noir

Light ruby in color. It’s from Canada. And it smells of dry grasses and wild flowers. Or maybe those are just the smells stuck in my nose. It’s family time here at the lake house in Canada, with all the tension and buried hurts family time can entail. Enter this Pinot noir. The scent of violet, the taste of rose petals, tart cherries, and red currants. It’s new and familiar at the same time. Brings me right back to myself. Families are families, for better or for worse. Then wine, old grapes made in a new way, complex and fleeting, helps give you the long view and takes you right back home. — 7 days ago

Mount Edelstone Vineyard Shiraz 2010

Massive wine. Not really my style, especially after the Ornellaia. Probably could have used a decant but we didn’t have time for that. — 11 days ago

Bird in Hand

Nest Egg Cabernet Sauvignon 2003

This was quite a surprise. While not the giant backbone you’d expect from a Cali cab, it had a nice Viscosity on the pallet and a longer finish. The tannins not fully integrated for its age, with a higher acidity level. Drank more like a Bordeaux blend. — 5 days ago

There is no other Australian wine that gives me this pleasure
Super elegant and endless

Mount Mary

Lilydale Cabernets Red Blend 1983

At Polar’s old Australian Tasting. Dr Pete (Polar) has been a long time collector of Mount Mary, one of Australia’s Premium Cabernet blends and this was certainly an Old one. Opened as very Cowyard and manure but definitely no Brett. Less than medium weight but totally classy. Obviously past its best but I liked it - a curio. — 9 days ago

Wendouree

Clare Valley Cabernet Malbec 1994

Amazingly a deep dark ruby for its age. Trademark aromas of camphor/menthol. Fine sandy persistent tannins. A full bodied old fashioned Australian Red still going strong at 25 years of age and still with a future. Still fresh, strong and vibrant. Last of a Dozen. Much of the early plummy notes have morphed into something more savoury but the camphor notes remain and compliment the overall result and identity of the wine. — 15 days ago
