Dreadnought Waiheke Island Syrah 2012

Mid to deep crimson in colour. Aromas of red berries, a little oak, a bunchie stalky note, spices including nutmeg and a dash of chocolate. Medium plus bodied quite northern Rhone in style more than SA. Not dissimilar to another excellent North Island Syrah as in Trinity Hill, Hawkes Bay. Very good, very tasty. From the unlikely destination of Waiheke Island which is in the middle of Auckland Harbour, which is massive in area compared to Sydney Harbour. One would think the rainfall might be a little high for quality viticulture but not so. Also when you think that one of the best new world Chardonnays in Kumeu River is made just to the north of Auckland. — 11 days ago

@ESF Fun fact about Waiheke Island You might recall that Tiger Woods had a New Zealand caddy for many years. When Tiger got married and almost at the height of his popularity he had part of his honeymoon on Waiheke Island so I was told by locals. Great for the privacy - organised by the caddy.

Warspite Cabernet Franc Blend 2012

This was a cracker tonight! Undecanted, but a standout in the lineup. Distinctive with its balance of dark fruit, savoury herbs and tannin grip that beautifully paired with aged beef. — a month ago

Réserve Selian 1er Cru Chardonnay 2015

Sidi Salem Domaine Neferis aus Tunesien ist das Weingut, 2015er Premier Cru Chardonnay der Wein. Gekauft im Duty free beim Abflug, war sicherlich nicht angemessen gelagert.
Leichte Firnisnote, schönes Holz, leichte Mandel / Bitternote. Ein Wein zum Buch und einer weissen Wand, man kann die Gedanken fliegen lassen.

Tapanappa

Wratton Bully Whalebone Vineyard Merlot Cabernet Franc 2008

Warm vintage, soft ripe fruit. Presents as young but very approachable with soft tannins, with liquorice and dark fruit prominent and tannins sitting in the background. An intriguing contrast to the Man O’ War blend alongside it. Very easy to enjoy but perhaps some element missing at this stage. — a month ago
