Meadowcroft

River Trace Grenache Blend 2017

This is a very tasty GSM from Sonoma. Fruit forward with a touch of Rhône. Easy drinking with mild complexity.

Medium bodied with medium acidity.

Showing red and blue fruits, earth, wood, spices, peppercorn, vegetables, dark coffee and herbs.

Needs an hour to open up properly.

Spicy and good with food or by itself.

I paired it with a pepperoni pizza.

A blend of mainly Syrah with Grenache and Mourvédre. A small production of only 120 cases.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

89 points.

$50.

Seventh Hill Farm Riesling 2017

A solid, dry riesling from Michigan. Really opens up slightly below room temperature. A nice zingy tingle of acid with stone and minerality. Great for a hot, summer day. — 3 days ago

Disco! Randle Hill Sauvignon Blanc Sémillon 2019

Disco! Is an ode to white Bordeaux - another in a series from the talented team at Subject to Change. Rich, slightly honeyed orchard fruits in a full body - a blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon.

I like this wine a whole lot. Serious and seriously well assembled. Oily and sturdy from time in neutral oak, it’s doesn’t flop over. It’s got acid and zip too.

Vanilla spiced lemon, grapefruit, and tangerine. Big enough for the main meal

Petaluma

Hanlin Hill Riesling 2002

Mid yellow in colour. Aromas of musk and mandarin with dried herbs and a hint of paraffin. Fresh and sprightly at 18 years of age. I was contemplating leaving this to 2022 when it would have been 20 years old and on this showing it would have made it easily. With time some peachy flavours and some sweetness. Next day - lovely honeysuckle and honeyed notes on the palate. Fulsome with stone fruits and quince - you would think off dry but in fact 12.8% ABV and fully dry. Made by the legendary Brian Croser back then. An absolute treat to have a wine like this for Sunday lunch. One of the Wines of the Year for me. — 24 days ago

Little Hill Pinot Noir 2018

One of the great Pinot Noirs from California that I have sampled over the past year, the 2018 Rochioli ‘Little Hill’ is a thrilling joyride from start to finish. Salted pomegranate seed and rose water tones combine with raspberry coulis and damp earth tones on this beautifully perfumed nose. The palate is utterly seamless as layers of bright red fruits mingle with umami, orange rind and salted charcuterie tones. A complete wine, this gorgeous new effort will have a long life ahead of it.

Katherine Stonemason Hill Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Katherine must be 6’3” and full of muscles. A lot of structure for the price. Too young... two nights and couldn’t get it to fully open. — 12 days ago

Bunker Hill Chardonnay 2017

Becoming a big fan of these wines which can fool the best tasters to believing it’s high quality Burgundy...Precision and elegance, lemon lime, fresh herbs, sea salt and minerals. Finishes with very good length and focus. No decant, slow oxed for 3 hours. — 2 days ago

Chalk Hill

Estate Bottled Chalk Hill Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Just tried the ‘18, and it’s great! Blend of 96% Sauv Blanc & 4% Sauv Gris adding an interesting dynamic to the wine & distinctive aromas. Medium lemon color, citrus, tropical & floral aromas. On the palate peach, melon, herb & earthy tones, well balanced with acidity, smooth yet robust on a long finish ending rich with wet stone character. — 15 days ago

Deutz

Cuvée William Deutz Millésimé Brut Champagne 2006

Celebrating my 3000th Delectable tasting note. Going back in time I see my first note was a South Australian red called Floating Geese 322 weeks ago! Also 443 different regions. I find Delectable has been a great hobby - always interesting to see what other wine lovers are drinking around the world although many are not available in Australia, particularly wines from the USA. This Vintage Champagne from Deutz was pale straw in colour. Lemony Toasty yeasty notes - also nutty aromas with white flowers. An ultra fine bead. Somewhat austere on the palate - refined and restrained, call it elegant but with medium plus persistence of flavour. A classic old school Champagne from a blend of 30% Chardonnay, 65% Pinot Noir and 5% Pinot Meunière. Could cellar for up to 5 more years if desired. One of the “1001 wines to drink before you die. “ — 6 days ago
