Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2022

I am never displeased with this wine, consistently available, and vintages show some variations from year to year. A little relaxed on the gooseberries, I love that zing! Finish presents with some creaminess which is different! — 5 days ago

Amon-Ra Barossa Valley Unfiltered Shiraz 2014

What a delicious Shiraz from Barossa Valley this is.

Full bodied with medium acidity.

Very dry on the palate and fruit forward.

Showing black fruits with cedar, vanilla, leather, earth, chocolates, tobacco, Indian spices, peppercorn, coffee, cola and licorice.

This 9 year old is drinking beautifully now. Rich and extracted. Tangy and interesting. Showing Nice complexity and mouthfeel.

I had the 2006 years ago, and it is very consistent.

Good right out of the bottle and better with airtime.

Robert Parker 96 points.

Aged in new French oak barrels for 14 months. Unfiltered and delectable

15.5% alcohol by volume.

93 points.

Grange Bin 95 Shiraz 2015

Tighter than a monkey’s fist before any granted wishes. I would have used one of those wishes for about 20 more years of aging… it was still decent and it’s clear a lot is there under the surface but it’s just way to soon. Very inward. Too much alcohol. It’s moving in 2nd gear when it has 7. — 3 days ago

Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2022

Racy wine with notes of grapefruit, lemon juice, gooseberry, grass and an interesting creamy note (lees stirring ?). Excellent concentration. Excellent value compared to many NZ sauv blancs in its range. — 12 days ago

Bella's Garden Barossa Valley Shiraz 2018

Deep Ruby, aged for 18 months in French oak, about 25% new, aromas of red and blue fruits with spice and earthy scents. On the palate flavors of plum, cherry and blackberry with spice and cacao. This full-body wine had fine dusty tannins, well balanced, long finish ending with fruit, spice, oak and earthy character. Serve this with a chop or Ribeye with garlic and herbs! — 10 days ago

Grange Hermitage Bin 95 Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon 1970

Menthol.. Soft resolved cherry. Plum. Some black pepper. Slightly cloudy but perhaps I should have let it settle more. Lovely poise and balance. Re-corked at Grange in 2007. — 19 hours ago

Blue Eyed Boy Shiraz 2013

Refer to previous Delectable Notes 5 years ago in July 2018. No changes to now. Black fruits - currant and berry. Rich, mouth filling, full bodied and delicious - the sort of wine that created a big profile for Mollydooker in the USA. The 16%ABV is not apparent. As I said in the previous note, definitely a crowd pleaser and a great wine on a cold night. One bottle left which I will probably have next winter. — 5 days ago
