Margaret Barossa Sémillon 2005

Citrus and Beeswax aromas getting honeyed nuances at 14 years. Fuller on the palate raising it to medium bodied but still lively. Different to old Hunter Valley Semillon. A marvellous drink showing the longevity of Semillon and another multi trophy winner on the Australian Show Circuit. — 8 days ago

Yellow Tail (Casella Wines)

Chardonnay 2018

Easy to drink with typical stone fruit and balanced oak. Good quality and consistency for the millions of bottles they make from mainly Riverland fruit. I remember seeing a 4 storey high neon sign in Times Square some years ago and it confirmed to me how the Casella Family had cracked the American market. — 2 days ago

Grange South Australia Shiraz 1999

Very nice dark berry fruit, hints of dark cherry. Some meaty savory notes with violets, spices, and nice acid tannins fully integrated and a nice plush lengthy finish. Was better on night 2. — 21 days ago

Torbreck Vintners

The Steading Red Rhone Blend 2014

It is a hot sticky night here in the Chicago area and I have opened the 2014 Torbreck "The Steading" Barossa Valley Rhone Blend. 77% Grenache, 15% Mataro and 8% Shiraz.

The nose reveals black cherry, raspberry, anise, cinnamon, spice, herbs, violet and smokey oak.

The palate is very savory, a little heavy on the oak, strawberry, black cherry, black pepper, licorice, violets and earth.

This wine is medium to full bodied, velvety with medium acidity and medium + gripping tannins that lead to a long smokey peppery finish. Have a wonderful weekend and please be safe. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

United & Undaunted Mourvedre Shiraz 2016

Came across this little beauty when judging at the Toowoomba Wine Show a couple of years ago. 100% Mourvèdre. Deep dark crimson with dusty meaty aromas. Blackberry and unusually sweet on the palate. A new world Aussie take on Mourvèdre from an ultra boutique boutique winery in the Geographe district of WA. Only 394 bottles made. More sweet than the savoury examples from Bandol. Medium to full bodied. — 9 days ago

Clarendon Hills

Astralis Syrah 2006

Rich decadent old vine aromas Blackberry, Herbal Prune and Liquorice aromas. In a blind tasting this screams old vine Australian Shiraz. From 95 year old vines planted in McLaren Vale. Full bodied, balanced with silky smooth Tannins. One of 22 wines in the Langtons Exceptional Category along with the usual suspects like Grange and Hill of Grapes. I have tasted this wine before but this is the first bottle I have shared. Not easy to find even in Australia but worth seeking out. — 13 days ago

Nice bottle! It's not easily found in this hemisphere either.

Clarendon Hills

Romas Grenache 2010

This was killer. Dark purple hue, with a bombing nose of fresh berries maybe a little lavender. Umptous mouth feel and a long finish. Still some tannic structure and acidity. Will go on for another decade or two — 8 days ago

These are great, once you get about this far from current release, they need time, as you noted.

Where are you sourcing These? Clarendon Hills is like a unicorn in New York ha :)

Torbreck Vintners

Woodcutter's Barossa Valley Shiraz 2016

Solid Shiraz from Torbeck. Some spice, dark fruit and slightly earthy a bit like a Chateauneuf du Pape. Easy drinking and good value for money. It’s great that the Aussie producers have a full spectrum of the same varietals for people to enjoy. Torbeck, Two Hands, Penfolds and Glaetzer all have great options at multiple price points. — 6 days ago
