Premier Selection Shiraz Cabernet 2017

Bright red on color..very strong alcohol on nose, wood, cheese, eucalyptus, and fresh fruit. On palate, fair acidity level, not too sweet, a little bit tannic at the end.. sour raspberry, some strawberries.. this is a very good wine at its price. Bought it at Changi Duty Free for 30 SGD+. It do love this wine, keep it for 5-7years more, decant time 30minutes. Cheers! — 13 days ago

Stella Luna Barossa Cinsault Blend 2018

I'm gonna be totally honest and say I don't remember much of this wine. Like the L'original, this was opened late on a very drunk night - 2nd last bottle in fact. I did jot this down: "Cranberry juice and herbs. Crunchy!" — 6 days ago

DW-Old Barossa Valley Syrah

2013 Sami-Odi Syrah DW-OLD
Thought I’d open something from my favorite Australian producer, @fraser_mckinley, in honor of the start of the Formula 1 Season in Melbourne. (Nice start for my man Max Verstappen and the new Red Bull partnership with Honda). My first and only bottle of the 2013, decanted for 3 hours. 14.4% alcohol. It appears a deep, dark, black hole in the Zalto stem. Nose of dark berries, clove-and-cinnamon and dried fruits, with some forest floor and floral notes in the background. On the palate, rich dark fruits with a cedary tannin. Wonderful acidity. Full-bodied, fresh, rich and complex. Lengthy finish. My recollection is that Fraser told me that 2013 was a difficult year with the entire first fruit being destroyed by frost, and then there was a second set. Always amazes me that these challenging years always seem to produce the most memorable vintages. I’m a big fan of Fraser’s work.

Wendouree Cabernet Malbec 2006

Potential to become like the 1990 one day
At now we wonder where is the cabernet component, i mean in terms of complexity
The malbec is so in charge, so vibrant and wild
Long finish and long life, at least 10/15years from now

Pimpernel Barossa Trousseau 2018

Introducing the last wine of the night. Picture perfectly potrays how it went down. Drank out of plastic cups, and had with Hokkien mi and stir-fried pork liver. No notes taken, but I remember it to be quite an excellent pairing and a pretty soupy wine. — 5 days ago

Clarendon Hills

Blewitt Springs Grenache 2006

The 2006 ‘Blewitt Springs’ by Clarendon Hills shows tremendous energy and verve despite being more than thirteen years of age. Brandy soaked red cherry, cigar box and bright guava puree aromatics fill the glass. Showing a seamless texture and a wonderful sense of minerality, this dazzles on the palate. Red fruits and rose water packed with mineral-driven flavors excite the senses. A long-ager, this will continue to beautifully evolve over the next decade. Drink 2019-2029- 93 — 5 days ago
