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. — 14 days ago

Traditionale Clare Valley Riesling 2018

Estate situated in the quaint Polish Hill sub region of South Australia’s Clare Valley. Brothers Andrew & Neil Pike established Pikes in 1984 and continue to manage today. Pale lemon with pronounced aromas of citrus & stone fruits adding floral notes. On the palate flavors of lemon/lime, peach & pineapple with honey and toasty biscuit notes. Medium+ finish ending with wet stone character. Very Good, some bottle age will benefit. — 10 hours ago

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. — 20 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. — 9 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. — 16 days ago

Russian River Valley Pinot Noir 2016

Chardonnay, not Pinot...
Loads of butterscotch. Tropical fruit, citrus, slight minerality. Definite notes of new oak.
