Late Bottled Vintage Porto 2008

Picked this up from local Alko as my Kopkes ended up lost somewhere on their way. This has quite broad array of licorice, smoke, oak and various red and dark berries flowing through both nose and palate. It's quite dense but manages to stay away from being cloying. Taste ends eith nutty and raspberry notes. This works great with various chocolate desserts when slightly cooled to freshen up the mouthfeel. We had this with chocolate cheese cake that ended our Christmas dinner. — 2 years ago

Chardonnay Yarra Valley 2017

Baked apple aromas up front with some slight vanilla, leading to flavours of green apple and pear (no malolactic here!). Lingering citrus at the end, works great with steamed clams. — 3 years ago

Napa Valley Blonde Tawny 2007

Lovely. A bit of light fruit with the complex nut tones in the middle and late. Vanilla, walnut and pecan. Balanced and well thought out.

10 Year Old Tawny Porto 10

Figs, raisins, candy, cream, acids, walnuts; this tawny port works great with gingersnaps and stilton cheese. Spends many years in 630-litre oak casks in cellars of this port producer of 428 years. — 6 years ago

Vinho Regional Alicante Bouschet 2011

Everything about this wine screams uncool in our industry in the present era: high alcohol (14%), heavy extraction, generous use of new oak (presumably), ripe + chewy tannins, flavors that shout rather than whisper and high praise from Robert Parker (cue Elaine or Carlton Banks’ dance moves). Maybe it’s my 90’s nostalgia or maybe I’ve been drinking too much vintage port these days 🤷🏻‍♀️ but it all works beautifully here: intense aromas of licorice, pepper, cedar, black plum, wet tar, dried tobacco, cranberries, cassis, dried violets. And this is only the beginning... A blast of macerated red and black berries on the palate, held together by a solid acid backbone, followed by a long finish laced with black olive, dried tobacco, mocha and mineral. Hedonistic. Three cheers for Alicante Bouschet! — a year ago

👏 buttoned up Carlton drinking vintage port! Can’t think of a more stuffy formal wine.

Chardonnay White Port Aria 2013

Nose of apple and cherry, white cherry and apricot on the palate with a finish of vanilla and hazelnut liqueur. Sweetness cut by the acid. — 5 years ago

Sabbie di Sopra il Bosco Terre Del Volturno Pallagrello Nero Blend 2012

Solid wine for post meal with a good amount of sweetness that works very well with desert. It's your Port alternative, but not a port. — 6 years ago
