#6

Castello di Ama

Vigneto San Lorenzo Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2010

Extremely savoury on nose and palate but is there ANY fruit? Medium bodied with earthy cherry notes finishing with sandy drying tannins. Similar notes to 156 weeks ago. Starting to come together after 9 years but to be honest it has not lived up to its #6 wine for 2014 with Wine Spectator. I have about 4 left so its progress will be interesting. — 5 months ago

Wine #6. This was a fun wine. 375ml so a little bit for everyone. I don’t get the chance to drink too many 30 year old Cabs. This was fun and good! — 7 months ago

Hoffman Dallwitz Little Wine IV Syrah

A rich plush Barossa Shiraz. Full bodied plum and berry flavours. A lovely fluid supple palate, the product of old vine fruit. Looking through my notes I see I have had Little Wine #2 #3 #5 and #6 but somehow missed this #4 Multi vintage comprising 2012 at 17%; 2013 at 44% and 2014 at 39%. All good years in the Barossa although Fraser would say some were more difficult than others. Vine age ranges from the 1990s with the oldest planted prior to 1912. Rich and delicious. — 8 months ago

"Little Wine" #6 Syrah

Completely unique. @Fraser McKinley has said that he prefers these Little Wines in their youth. It’s been a year almost since I last had #6 and I think the year has done wonders. It just feels even more interesting and integrated than last time. The nose completely blows you away on opening. The finish is extremely long. A triumph. — 5 months ago

The aromatics on this wine and his single vineyard wine are just flat out spectacular!

Great to hear @TheSkip and lovely to see it opening nicely. My drinking windows are clearly pretty timid 😂

Castello di Ama

San Lorenzo Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Sangiovese Blend 2010

Aromas of cherries. Savory cherry, leather, and earthiness. Decanted for 60 minutes. Very good but not sure it lives up to the hype of WS #6 wine of 2014 — 7 months ago

"Little Wine" #6 Syrah

Deep crimson with youthful purple tinges. Notes of ripe plum and wood spice. Beautiful texture - lush mouthfeel - also some savouriness preventing it from being a Barossa fruit bomb (% of whole bunch?). Great balance and amazing QPR. My first of 6 from Little Wine #6 Mainly from the 2015 vintage. Had another one 26 weeks later on 18 March 2019 with consistent notes. Always a satisfying Barossa Shiraz with good balance and silky palate. — 9 months ago

Unbelievable QPR especially when you dont need to direct import from Australia and pay the $275usd/case shipping! Even with that, great QPR.

Domaine Armand Rousseau

Chambertin Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2015

Wine #7 in this bracket. My blind tasting notes - similar to #6 but lighter in colour and nose. ( As it later turned out they were both Armand Rousseau wines but I would not have expected Chambertin to be slightly lighter in colour than the Ruchottes). Again palate staining spicy intensity with a long future assured. Brilliant. — 5 months ago

Batasiolo Wine Dinner / Pour #6
An inexpensive and satisfying after dinner accompaniment to fruity/creamy desserts. Light weight bubbles with peach, fig, and orange notes. Too bad it’s not Panettone season.
