Weekly Wine Committee. 1 sparkler, 3-4 whites, 3-4 reds and 1 dessert wine format. Served blind.
This was really faded and light in appearance. Lot of sediment. I guessed late ‘70s/early ‘80s port. More guessed early ‘70s. It tasted older than it was, actually. Old graham cracker, cocoa dusted dates, licorice and old, candied blackberries. Dusty. — 14 days ago
Very sweer but deep flavored, port wine. From Newport vinyard tasting. — 10 days ago
Aromas of savoury Cherry and stemmy notes. Supple and intense - a top quality new World Pinot for sure. Mellow and reaching full maturity - Tannins resolved. Beautiful texture and easily Premier Cru standard. After a couple of hours the silky tannins are prominent. Has a future but pretty irresistible right now. One of Australia’s best Pinot Noirs IMO - definitely in the Top 5. — 14 days ago
Travelling well at 7 years but not made for the long haul. Light to medium crimson with tawny aged rim. Savoury Cherry aromas with forest floor/compost heap. Light to medium weight but with M plus intensity and soft tannins. An excellent Australian Pinot and amazing value - I remember paying around $45. — 22 days ago
LBVs usually aged in wood for many years but this one aged in bottle from 1985 until now. Lots of sediment and the wine is relatively light in color and body but still quite good. Brown at the edge but still sweet and fruity — 2 days ago
Aromas of roses with some raspberry and charcuterie notes. Barely medium bodied with light tannins and acid on an essentially savoury palate. Made in the Geelong district, south west of Melbourne - better known for its excellent Pinot and Chardonnay. Faded a bit after a couple of hours in the decanter with astringent notes. — 25 days ago
