Always amazingly good. I maintain the Pisoni vineyard Syrah is better than the Pinot. I just love it. Warm fruit compote on the nose with cinnamon, coffee and cracked pepper. Rich and opulent but with great grip and tension. Just fabulous — 11 days ago

Philip Togni Vineyard

Tanbark Hill Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Beautiful Napa Cab presents as a classic Bordeaux. Understated elegance. Silky smooth mouthfeel with smooth tannins. Lengthy finish. Second label - no way! This is a beautiful wine with a great QPR. I decanted 3 hours. Opened up slowly. Has potential to age 10 to 15 years. I love Phillip Togni wines. — 6 days ago

Jasper Hill

Emily's Paddock Shiraz Cabernet Franc 1999

Mid To Deep Crimson with a tawny edge. After decanting massive berry, earthy aromas with nuances of mint and cocoa. On the palate essence of Heathcote Shiraz - so much depth together with incredible length and fine resolved tannins. Drinking at its peak on its 21st Birthday. Dry plum notes at the finish. With time aromas of coffee/mocha developing. Like all great wines they keep changing after a 21 year slumber. The 15.5% ABV whilst high is not noticeable. Jasper Hill - a big reason for putting Heathcote on the map as a quality viticultural area. An example of why one cellars wines. — 12 days ago

David Hill Vineyard Chasselas Doré 2015

Yellow-white, excellent clarity. White floral and lemon peel notes in nose. Candied lemon fruit flavor, slight trace of lemon fruit sweetness with a core of lemon pulp tartness, good acidity overall, mineral finish with lingering lemon fruit flavor. Really intriguing varietal, well made wine. Five variations on fresh lemon expression in a white table wine? It could be, impressionistically, at least. — 15 days ago

Canary Hill Vineyard Pinot Noir 2016

Red fruit across the nose with some floral aromatics. Layered fruit starts crisp & high toned moving to dark & rich. Think cranberry to bing cherry. Toasty spice and fresh acid accent through the mid palate. Gorgeous — 7 days ago

Viña William Fèvre

Espino Carménère 2017

Friday night and had a taste for a Chilean wine so I picked up a couple Carménère. This first I chose was the 2017 Espino Carménère Reserva Especial by William Fèvre. A blend of 85% Carménère, 13% Malbec and 2% Syrah. You may know the name William Fèvre from Burgundy. William wanted to try and find another area for growing Chardonnay and went to Chile and saw the locals using the benches and he wanted something with more elevation so got land closer to the mountains. Here he is producing wonderful Chardonnay, Carménère and many other wines.

On the nose there is black plum, raspberry, cherry, smoked bell pepper, vanilla, hibiscus and some smokey notes.

On the palate there is green bell pepper, strawberry, raspberry, menthol, green peppercorn, spice and sandlewood.

This wine is medium to full bodied with medium to + acidity and medium + mouthcoating grippy tannins that leads into a pleasing long rich tannin finish. Have a wonderful weekend and please stay safe. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷
