Vat 1 Hunter Valley Semillon 2014


Pale yellow with relatively intense nose of green apple, lime, beeswax, cantaloup melon and whiteflower. The medium body has less intensity than the nose and there's almost an effervescence in the front of the mouth, with a good acidity that is not overwhelming. Notes of apple, lime, apricot, melon and ginger on the palate with minerality. The finish is quite short and carries some spicy ginger. Nice wine but I was expecting more, especially after the initial wonderful nose. — a month ago

Corang Estate

Hilltops Shiraz 2019

Quite light on the palate and smooth for a Shiraz. Tannins do not dominate, very easy to drink. Edit: it was the 2019, not the 2020 vintage. — 8 days ago

Lillypilly Estate

VP Riverina Fortified Shiraz 1995


Finally a taste of this weird port like wine made from Australian Shiraz! Graf’s favorite and I must say this is surprisingly tasty like a cross of an aged vintage port with a sassy Shiraz. Would not have guessed what it is. Terrific. Lots of sediment 18.5 ABV and another great AA value 13. Hope a few left from the initial 9! Beautiful with Stilton Colston Bassett Nottinghamshire UK from Formaggio via ML. — 5 days ago

Eden Road

Gundagai Shiraz 2012

A truly elegant wine: poised, well integrated, concentrated, a balance of dark fruit, cherry, spice, & forest. Nuanced & complex. The last & best bottle of a case. A splendid achievement accomplished under the stewardship of Chris Coffman. Lovely. — 8 days ago

Mount Pleasant Wines

Maurice O'Shea Hunter Valley Shiraz 1994

A solid rich Ruby red with no tawny rim. Looks way younger than 27 years. An earthy, plummy leathery perfume with same earthy, plummy and minerally medium to full bodied palate - a sweaty saddle classic old Hunter Valley style. Medium plus intensity of flavour with great persistence. Demonstrates the amazing longevity of old vine Hunter Valley Shiraz. I think you could safely drink this into the late 2020s. Honouring the Hunter Valley legend, Maurice O’Shea, who made great wine in primitive conditions In the late 1940s and 1950’s. About 15 years ago I had a 1952 Mount Pleasant Shiraz made by the great man - just medium bodied and still full of energy. — a month ago
