Tasmania Pinot Noir 2020

A bright pale to medium Ruby in colour. Soaring aromatics of. Red cherry, rhubarb, caramel , rose petals and forest floor. Much of this carries through to the delicious palate finishing with fine savoury persistent tannins. Sometimes it’s good to drink an excellent wine in its youth to capture that fresh vibrancy and realise why it scooped the pool at Royal Adelaide this year winning the Trophies for Best Pinot and Best Red Wine of the Show. Quite an achievement in one of the most competitive Wine Shows in Australia. This is a “Judgment of Paris “ type wine which would scatter Premier Cru Candidates in Burgundy. Sourced from leading vineyards throughout Tasmania and will sell out in a flash. — 12 days ago

Premium Cuvee Chardonnay Blend 2017

Stephen Howell

Nose is subtle with yeast and an generous honeysuckle richness. The palate matches with a generous apricot and honeysuckle middle that fades slowly in great balance, it’s supported with a soft balanced acidity and fine bubbles. — 10 days ago

Clare Valley Shiraz 2019

Excellent, well-balanced Shiraz. Sweet and spicy, but not overpowering. A nice lighter wine when you’re not looking for something heavy. — 5 days ago


Tamar Valley Chardonnay 2012

Very pale lemon in colour. Grapefruit notes on nose and palate. Mineral notes with a bit of funk. In the lean style still with brisk acidity. Bellwether is a Coonawarra winery but Sue Bell sources this Chardonnay from the cool climate Tamar River in Tasmania. When I did vintage in early April at Bellwether a refrigerated tanker of the latest vintage arrived from the Tamar River which we then transferred into a combination of new and one year old oak puncheons for maturation. An excellent wine for its genre. — 15 days ago

All the rage in Australia at the moment. Exceptional cool climate conditions for Chardonnay and Pinot Noir in particular. Also Shiraz and rarely Cabernet. Try Domaine A for the latter.

Pressing Matters

R9 Coal River Riesling 2007

My last bottle unfortunately. See previous notes from 74 weeks ago and 130 weeks ago. Mid yellow in colour. Obvious parrafin/kerosene on the nose. On the palate ripe grapefruit, nectarine and a little chalkiness. Only 10.2%ABV but not overly sweet. Low acid. Drinking at its peak. Riesling in Tasmania is excellent and flies under the radar to an extent. — a month ago

Dr Edge

South Tasmania Chardonnay 2019

(The front label doesn’t give much away but this is for Dr Edge South Tasmania Chardonnay 2019.)
Intense and linear with Pink Lady apple bite and pucker. Great acid. Lovely detail and shape. Apple and citrus and a bit of tropical.

Lieu dit les Déduits Fleurie Gamay 2019

We’re pausing on goodness and hope today. We hold so much gratitude in our hearts for our loved ones and their presence in our lives. We want to share a heartfelt thanks to you all who’ve supported and inspired us day in and day out. 🙏🙏💕💕

Today we had a vegan Thanksgiving bowl of roasted carrots, acorn squash, brussels sprouts, and broccoli, along with mashed yams, potatoes, toasted pecans, pomegranate, cranberry sauce (with orange zest), and thyme-spiced gravy. 🍁🍁🍁

With it we paired a couple of options each of which went well with the flavors, textures, and elements of the meal… here’s the Gamay…

Famille Dutraive, Fleurie Lieu Dit, Les Deduits 2019. ABV 14.5%. Organically farmed, old vine gamay. Intensely fruity with an abundance of bright cherry, strawberry, cranberry, banana, kirsch on the nose and palate, with noteworthy acidity, high alcohol, soft tannins and notes of vanilla, cinnamon, developed while aging 6 months in oak. Whole cluster, carbonic fermentation 👏👏

@Delectable Wine this is from Beaujolais not South Australia…
