Grampians, Western Victoria

Crawford River

Riesling 2013

See previous Delectable Notes 134 weeks ago and 114 weeks ago where I said have the last bottle when 10 years old ie in 2023. A touch of paraffin creeping into the nose. White florals, ripe mandarin, silky texture - almost unctuous, low acid. Hint of peach. The word for this Riesling is Rich. A beautiful Riesling, probably at its peak. — 25 days ago

Blue Pyrenees Estate

Red Blend 2017

Fantastic stuff. Blue/plum fruit, a hint of menthol/eucalyptus, racy acidity, bright minerality, grippy tannins. If I’d not read the back label first I might have mistaken it for Shiraz. After 30min I got more of the chocolatey red currant notes of the Cab. The flavor profile of this is uniquely Aussie. Out of my #grassl1855 — 3 years ago


Don't tell Gary Shiraz 2017

Truly a top notch Aussie Shiraz. This is made like they used to be made. Plenty of pepper and a lot of ballsie fruit. Big and bold... don't tell Gazza! — 3 years ago


Moonambel Shiraz 2013

Delicious. Dark fruited and well balanced with textural tannins that are soft and slightly chewy. In a good place now. — 3 months ago


Great Western Pinot Meunier 2021

Mount Langi Ghiran

Cliff Edge Shiraz 2017

See previous notes on 2 tasting occasions. Coincidentally all at Paros on the Beach Apartments - all 3 tastings. One of my favourite 2nd wines in Australia. Often associated with white pepper, this exhibits more plum and spice. A very good wine and great QPR. — 2 years ago

Thanks for the awesome note Bob. I've only got a little experience of the 2009 vintage. It's never agreed with me. Always far too acidic. I've tried everything to soften it but to no avail. 😢
