🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷9/10 for smell
What does it smell like:
- What an interesting wine!! Velvety and deep with aromas of ripe red berries, plum, cherry, blackberry and strawberry jam, with moments of concentrated juice that is somewhat port like. There are also herbaceous moments of leafy mulch, fennel and tomato stems and another level of savoury toasted grains, tomato paste, a meatiness of roast drippings and an earthy minerality of freshly turned red clay. Oak nuances of cedar and cigar come through too giving a woody and smokey depth to it!
-
-
πŸ·πŸ·πŸ·πŸ·πŸ·πŸ·πŸ·πŸ·πŸ·πŸ‡9.5/10 for taste
What does it taste like?
- It takes a while to open up so a decant is necessary with this wine. Straight away, this wine tastes refined and is amazingly balanced and full of ripe berry juice! Texturally it’s smooth, rich and clean and carries flavours of ripe red berries, dark plum, plenty of ripe cherry, notes of black liquorice and when you swallow it gives you a warming cuddle in your chest! Super refined tannins play around at the end and a lovely tail of red apple and floral apple sweetness finishes off the mouthful.
-
-
This is a very sophisticated and extremely well made wine. In all honesty, I’m not sure I’ve had a better Australian Pinot Noir than this! It is very French and it’s stunning me a bit! I love it...alot!!!!

-
- πŸ·πŸ·πŸ·πŸ·πŸ·πŸ·πŸ·πŸ‡7.5/10 for smell
What does it smell like:
- I probably should have decanted, but i didn’t...so, quite a reserved nose with a slow release of red berries, red cherry and oak notes of new leather, nutmeg, a touch of salt-cured meat and some slate-like minerality. There is also a cleansing floral smell that reminds me of traditional soap and has a subtle pot-pouri vibe about it! It’s actually really lovely!
-
-
πŸ·πŸ·πŸ·πŸ·πŸ·πŸ·πŸ·πŸ‡7.5/10 for taste
What does it taste like?
- In the mouth it’s a play between plum, slightly tart but ripe cherry, deep raspberry, fennel and sweet vanilla. Very easy to drink and an all-round crowd pleaser. The finish is dry and clean and has very refined tannins that give a chew. The tail is of grape essence and blueberry and drifts off nicely.
-
-
A crowd pleaser and for the low price, a great choice for a group dinner. The word β€œclean” really sums up this Pinot Noir and it delivers lovely freshness and berry juice goodness. It’s safe, refined and yummy and definitely deserves a write up...good drop.

🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷8/10 for smell
What does it smell like:
- The nose is flooded with violets and rose, ripe red berries, black plum and cherry that are almost effervescent. Fruit cake and port sit amongst a briny, almost mushroom ketchup like savouriness that comes in deep. Herbals of moss, fennel and pine are thrown in the mix too. There’s also a fair hit of alcohol!
-
-
🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷8/10 for taste
What does it taste like?
- Smooth and velvety with plenty of cherry, strawberry, raspberry, cranberry and hints of blueberry with a touch of smokiness, liquorice and vanilla. Not much acidity for such a young wine but it is still beautifully balanced and way too easy to drink. The finish is long, sweet and a touch dry revealing very refined tannins. -
-
This is a pretty amazing wine! Not really a traditional Pinot Noir packing such a big hit of juicy berry goodness, but a brilliantly balanced new style! Alive with fruits and boasting a balance that makes for an incredible drinker. This wine and winemaker have done Tassie proud!! Awesome!

What does it smell like:
- Lush and fragrant violets with a hint of rose. Clean aromas of plum, red cherry, cassis and blackberry fill the airwaves with fruit that is heady with a fair amount of alcohol. Lots of meaty pepperiness steers me towards a bit of Eden Valley juice in there, with oaky nuances of new leather, sweet tobacco, cedar and sweet milk chocolate.

- Clean and crisp on the palate with plum, blackberry and herbal notes of bayleaf and fennel. There is a nori like savouriness in there too! Beautifully textured, with an addictive chew and seamlessly balanced with fruit, acidity and refined tannins! I like...very much! -
-
Aussie shiraz keeps getting better and better!!! This is a brilliant shiraz for the price point and definitely one to scout out and store for any occasion! Extremely well balanced, lively and fresh with ripe fruits, berry acidity and refined tannins that will last for years to come! This wine should satisfy any lover of a South Australian shiraz as it definitely did for me πŸ™ŒπŸΌβ€οΈ

-
🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷8/10 for smell
What does it smell like:
- Strong dark and blue aromas slowly rise from the glass with a fair bit of alcohol. Violets, black pepper, ripe black cherry, blackcurrant, deep plum, blueberries and some red berry lift. Touches of savoury red chili, salty cured meat, leather, milk chocolate, coffee, graphite and tobacco.
-
-
πŸ·πŸ·πŸ·πŸ·πŸ·πŸ·πŸ·πŸ·πŸ‡8.5/10 for taste
What does it taste like?
- Bursting with rich blackcurrent, black cherries, dark plum, blueberry, liquorice and a green herbal flavour i can’t quite pinpoint! There is a bit of clove and a funkily sweet, almost apple like, acidity that cuts the richness and freshens the palate. There is also a subtle hum of a meaty beef stock flavour that lays under it all. Gripping and powerful, yet refined bitter tannins come in quite early giving an amazing chew that lasts the length of your mouthful! Warning...there is a hell of a Lot of alcohol in this wine! Tipsy on my first glass.
-
-
Powerful and elegant, this Shiraz packs a punch! It has blossomed with the 8yrs of age and it seems much smoother and more well-rounded since my last tasting! The balance of rich and ripe dark berries with a clean acidity allows this big wine to go down very easily, but the alcohol content creeps up on you...i’m actually a bit wobbly writing this! Amazing tannins and a richness places this wine on the upper shelf with the big guns, and it is one of my favourite representations of a great McLaren Vale Shiraz! Another glass and a bed please... -

What does it smell like:
- On the nose it’s floral with violets and fragrant with dried herbs and tomato leaf. Deep plum and dried cranberry lead the way to savoury elements of red capsicum, black olive, tomato paste, bresaola, earthy clay and some salinity.
-

What does it taste like?
- From the first sip your mouth gets a lovely bath of deeply juicy cranberry and pomegranate, ripe black cherry and sweet plum. An aftertaste of tomato skins, and a green, almost herbal, flavour of tomato leaf carries the tail into a clean and addictive finish
-
-
The second vintage of a Dardel Shiraz i have tried and I really like this wine too!! It’s a different Shiraz to the 2012 and it is not as refined and balanced as i was expecting, however it’s still banging! The aromas and flavours are undeniably intriguing and it is a very tasty wine! I’d have this over a chilled out lunch with an Italian antipasto plate any day of the week! Getting my hands on more of these bad boys for sure!

What does it smell like:
- Big, full and ripe with plentiful blackberries, black cherries, black mulberry and plum. Floral scents of violets and spicy white pepper with a warm and comforting bed of chocolate and oaky nuances.
-
-
🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷8/10 for taste
What does it taste like?
- On the palate you get an explosion of generous and almost jammy forest berries, blackberries, raspberry and cranberry giving a lusciousness with a nicely balanced acidity. Sweet with milk chocolate and liquorice with a meaty chew and a touch of menthol at the end. Refined tannins finish off the mouth in a smooth and clean tail.
-
-
Another big hitter in the typical Australian shiraz game, yet this wine was very enjoyable. Lovely berry fruits, rich chocolate and very nicely counter-balanced acidity made for a refined and powerful drinker. This held up over the past decade to be quite lively and fresh...a wine worth writing about!

-
🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷8/10 for smell
What does it smell like:
- The creamy smell of comte cheese, bees wax, nutty cashew, sugar melon, an almost tropical sweetness of starfruit, rubber balloon, floral citrus and a subtle chamomile and garden fennel background. There is also some ocean spray salinity in there too.
-
-
🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷8/10 for taste
What does it taste like?
- On the palate it’s creamy with flavours of fresh apricot, sweet pear, yellow nectarine, mild citrus notes and a touch of lanolin. The tail is sweet and long with nougat and raw almond. Delicious!
-
-
Very smooth, golden and rich in aroma and flavour. The wine was almost nectar like, generous with fruits on the palate. I feel the wine was missing a touch of acidity, that may have been present in earlier years, to carry the wine into 2018. Still a very enjoyable and interesting wine that left an impression for sure!

-
🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷7/10 for smell
What does it smell like:
- Heady with alcohol and perfumed with a musky, floral bouquet of rose, hibiscus, violets and sweet white flowers! Lively red berries, cranberry, red plum, cherry, black pepper and red liquorice. Oaky characters of milk chocolate, vanilla, leather and a clean, clay like mineralilty.
-
-
🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷7/10 for taste
What does it taste like?
- Extremely smooth and sweet on the palate with a spike of alcohol and a quick surge of sharpness from an almost zingy acidity. This time the palate showcases strong, rich, concentrated and ripe black fruits including blackberry, cassis, black plum with anise thickness and a fair bit of cola flavours that grow in strength in the tail. Plenty of tannins keeping it chewy and dry.
-
-
-
This is a big and bold example of a Mclaren Vale Shiraz. Full of ripe fruit and heavy handed with power and impact. It is still bright and lively but a little jammy and I feel this would have been tastier drunk younger! -

πŸ·πŸ·πŸ·πŸ·πŸ·πŸ·πŸ·πŸ·πŸ‡8.5/10 for smell
What does it smell like:
- Earthy, deep plum, fiery red berries and a cloud of violets and pink rose hits you straight away! The aromas turn quite savoury after that and accents of what i can only describe as β€˜antipasto smells’ jump out! Sweet cured meat, sun-dried tomato, red chili and button mushroom! Spiciness of black pepper, juniper and grassy notes of fennel, dried herbs and hay. Smokey tobacco sits behind it all and a very savoury, iron-like, salinity definitely caught my attention.
-
-
πŸ·πŸ·πŸ·πŸ·πŸ·πŸ·πŸ·πŸ·πŸ‡8.5/10 for taste
What does it taste like?
- In the mouth it feels smooth, finely textured and light in weight with a fresh sourness of cherry, cranberry and a little bit of pomegranate. The berries end sweet and a savoury green, leafy bitterness comes in that gives a subtle tannic chew. The tail reveals a soft and refreshing breath of fresh and sweet cherry tomatoes! YUM!! - -
-
A savoury and deliciously nuanced rusty-red Pinot Noir from Geelong! This was given to me as a present to try, and i think i may have found a new favourite! Complex and interesting enough in the nose to get lost in it and when you finally take your first sip you fall for it again! It’s so smooth and refined and is far too easy to drink and for a nerd, there’s plenty of reasons to keep you questioning and admiring each glass until you accidentally finish the whole bottle! Aromas and flavours of tomatoes, cherries, dried herbs and fiery red berries makes this a brilliant match for Pizza!!!

What does it smell like:
- Velvety and explosive on the nose! Stunning floral violet and romantic smells of red rose hits you straight away. The next wave is full of chocolate and rich, ripe berries! Lots of black cherry, cranberry, cassis, dark plum, blackberry and a touch of dried dates. Red capsicum and faint green olive follow with subtle heady herbal sweetness of fennel, thyme, vanilla, nutmeg and crushed pepper tree leaves. Savoury elements of leather, a roast beef like meatiness and a smell of wet stones accompany cedar, sandalwood, pencil shavings and sweet tobacco.
-
-
🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷10/10 for taste
What does it taste like?
- In the mouth it’s another level of yum! Your mouth comes to life with red and black cherry, red currants, cranberry and mulberry that sing and play together in perfect harmony! Subtle hints of sage and anise come in a bit later and then you are greeted by the most refined and seamless tannins that make you drool! The finish is long and steady with a tail of red berry freshness that you could easily sit on for a long while! - -
-
What a wine!! Rich and powerful with berry aromas and flavours that are still alive and youthful! There is an impeccable balance of sweet, sour and savoury that really keeps the richness of this wine in check and it makes for a super clean, tight and focused shiraz!! The acidity running through this wine, even after 20 years, is its strength and it really does showcase just how great a perfectly blended south australian shiraz can be. Blown away by this wine and definitely getting my hands on more!!!!

What does it smell like:
- Spritzy and vibrant with nectarine, yellow peach, tropical starfruit and papaya, touches of ginger and hints of strawberry. The round and tightly knit fruits are surrounded by luscious and fragrant honeysuckles, jasmine, orange blossom, white pepper and citrus scents of grapefruit and lime zest. There’s also a slightly petrol like smell and a minerally, wet tiles kind of funk...weird but awesome! -
-
🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷9/10 for taste
What does it taste like?
- In the mouth it’s creamy and smooth!!! The age has made this absolutely seamless! The palate is amazingly refined and still presenting balanced acidity with notes of ripe pear, apricot, sweet lime, honey and a long tail of green apple that has a very subtle dryness and zing making you salivate! There’s also a flavour of raw almond that lingers with the green apple on the end! Yummy!!
-
-
This wine was beautiful! I can only think of words like humble and mature, maybe because Aussie riesling doesn’t really get the attention it deserves! I smiled the whole time drinking this and I found myself admiring it. What a great Australian Riesling! Felt very lucky to have had this wine with my wifey and sooo happy it lasted the past 13yrs!

πŸ·πŸ·πŸ·πŸ·πŸ·πŸ·πŸ·πŸ·πŸ·πŸ‡9.5/10 for smell
What does it smell like:
- The nose is politely assertive revealing deep, dark and earthy plum, cassis, blackberry and a warming sweet hum of dried cranberry. Notes of black molasses, juniper, preserved fruit and mixed spices that reminds me of a fruit cake, plenty of floral violets, subtle dried herbals like oregano, bay leaf and floral-like thyme. Roasted meat drippings, black olives, a fair bit of cedar and a nostalgic background smell of old smokey leather. What a beast!!!
-
-
🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷9/10 for taste
What does it taste like?
- From first sip, this wine is smooth and creamy with plenty of brightness! There’s a great acidity that keeps the wine feeling light, but still packs a sophisticated punch! Black cherry, mulberries and red berry sharpness surrounded by heady fresh vanilla pod and star anise that drives the palate to a long and sweet tail of fresh plum! A bit of tobacco comes in at the end as well as a lovely, rounded vegetal bitterness that is entrancing! -
-
Rich, deep, dark and sophisticated, almost blood like in appearance, this wine grabs your attention with its beautifully fragrant nose! When you finally take a sip it shows off its great balance, clarity and its complexity! The interplay of sweet, savoury, sour and bitter notes makes it so tough to put down and the elegant and refined soft tannins swoon you to further seal the deal! For me, this is a Brilliant Beechworth Shiraz that you have to scout out! A Banger!!!!

This wine is all about the balance and play between its fruit, white florals and its impeccable acidity!! Stunning and refined! Texturally it is dry on the finish but leaves a beautiful hum of early picked stone fruits! Gorgeous and elegant! -

πŸ·πŸ·πŸ·πŸ·πŸ·πŸ·πŸ·πŸ·πŸ‡8.5/10 for smell
What does it smell like:
- Blackberries, almost jam like and earthy black plum, velvety and warm red berries and ripe cherries flood the glass. Back notes of leather, cedar and tobacco ride behind the berries and highlights of cola, touches of tabasco, a deepness that reminds me of wet ground, floral highlights of sweetly scented and minty herbals and some lead pencil makes this totally entrancing!

🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷8/10 for taste
What does it taste like?
- The flavours are tight, very restrained and quite savoury!! There is an initial wave of slightly sour cranberry, plum and raspberry that leads to fresh blackberry trailing to a sweetness similar to prunes. It then moves to a Eucalyptus floral, with savoury paprika and finishes super dry. Plenty of tannin too making it chewy and chalky!!

A great example of a restrained and lively Cabernet that has plenty of life to it! It is singing with fresh berries, had a nose that is very clean and interesting and has a depth of flavour that keeps you going back. You know from the first sip that this wine will age beautifully! I kind of regret opening it already because it is still quite young! Another 8+ yrs of cellaring would be awesome! Great Cabernet!!!

πŸ·πŸ·πŸ·πŸ·πŸ·πŸ·πŸ·πŸ‡7.5/10 for smell
What does it smell like:
- Big, ripe red and dark berries on the nose with high alcohol! There is a heavy presence of oak, chocolate, leather, kalamata olives with some white pepper. Floral violets and anise in the background that trail for a while.

🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷8/10 for taste
What does it taste like?
- The palate is packed of dense, jam like cherry, blackberry, cassis and plum with grassy, herbal nuances like moss and dried bay leaf. There are some tannins, but the barrage of fruit and berries holds them at bay and caresses them to the point where they are just present! This is big, bold and powerful Aussie shiraz.

A rich, densely packed and full to the cork explosion of dark berries and ripe aussie shiraz juice that packs a punch! This wine could easily be cellared for another 10 years and it would be even better! I tend to shy away from massive Aussie Shiraz, however, this particular wine is very well balanced for such a powerhouse! The interplay of berries, herbal and grassy notes, oaky goodness and very refined tannins makes this a pleasure to drink and one wine worth writing about!

πŸ·πŸ·πŸ·πŸ·πŸ·πŸ·πŸ·πŸ·πŸ‡8.5/10 for taste
What does it taste like?
- This wine is creamy and smooth with beautifully generous, fresh and vibrant plum, blackberry and dark cherries with nods towards red berries like raspberry and red currant. Hints of tabasco, bay leaf and eucalyptus/menthol subtly decorate the fruits in a refined and seamless way. The finish is smooth, classy and clean thanks to a beautifully balanced acidity, keeping the wine alive. There is also a polite dryness and a refined chewiness of tannins that makes this wine even better!

This wine is so refined, earthy and smooth, alive with black fruits that are expertly balanced with red berry acidity and topped off with stunning tannins that, altogether, make this wine exceptionally good! I loved this wine and would love to get my hands on more! Those bloody Aussie wine prices make it verrrrry difficult!!
