Rudderless

Sellicks Hill Grenache 2017

Really black grenache, dark in the glass, black fruited, earthy/bushy, dried herbs, light spice, savoury with a spread, light but grippy mouthfeel. Perhaps a little muted on the grenache flavours. Could almost be 93. — 14 days ago

Freedom Hill Vineyard Chardonnay 2014

Enjoyable with good acid lift. Lime and green apple on the palate yet not lean at all. WBA — 10 days ago

Rudderless

Sellicks Hill Shiraz 2018

I’m seeing the same influence across the 3 Rudderless wines I bought - grenache (2017), malbec (2017) and this shiraz. A nice little study into terroir. All from a close collection of Sellicks Hill vines, the southern edge of McLaren Vale. All having a recognisably similar earthy, dried-herbs, mild spice dimension. This is the densest of them all, black/purple in the glass, black fruited, gravelly tannin, meaty but balanced. A shiraz with heft and balance - suits me! — 9 days ago

Novelty Hill

Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

ESF
9.1

Sexy stuff here - particularly for 20 bones: deep dark intensely concentrated but not overdone, after an hour or so it began to reveal black fruits, cassis, a hi toned note, tobacco, cocoa, baking spices, against an earthy backdrop. Solid tannins but extremely well-integrated, seamless on palate thru finish. Stood up well to my filet w/grilled polenta. — 17 days ago

Grosset

Polish Hill Clare Valley Riesling 2012

Light pale lemon in colour. Bath talc and lime aromas, white flowers. Not a hint of Kero. Clean as a whistle on the palate with lime and lively citric acidity. A textural chalky mineral note. Still with a long future. Many good judges feel that this is Australia’s premium Riesling. If it’s not the best, it’s certainly in the conversation. From the Clare Valley SA. — 10 days ago

Kumeu River

Hunting Hill Chardonnay

Excellent partner to homemade Alaskan spot shrimp Alfredo, in the great oak/acid balance. Kumeu is great with further age, but couldn’t resist the screw cap on a Wednesday. — 14 days ago

A huge fan of Kumeu Rivet. Some of the best new world Chardonnay anywhere. Particularly Mates Vineyard.
