Familia Silva Branco

Douro Tinto 2018

2018 vintage. Douro red. Família Silva Branco. Aged 18 months in French oak. Dark red. A bit oak at first, but 5 minutes in the glass work miracles. Good fruit and spices, fresh acidity and well-tamed tannins. While the oak is integrated, I personally would like to see it toned down a bit. — a year ago

Château Gros Moulin

Côtes de Bourg Malbec Blend 2019

2019 vintage. Another winner from this estate. Oak is still slightly dominant at first, but decanting does miracles as these wines are build to age. Stunning complexity and length for this price range. Definitely one of the finest values in the whole of Bordeaux!. — 3 years ago

Bukovica Vipavska Dolina Rebula 2004

Excellent example of European amber wine. Deep amber color from the Rebula grape variety, skin contact and oak work miracles for the taste and body. Aromas of honey, yellow apple, tobacco, persimmon, daffodils, cinnamon. Longish aftertaste with apples, tobacco and persimmon. Starts to lose its acidity, but still vibrant. Well-balanced wine with pleasant oily body. — 6 years ago

Future For Miracles Viognier Syrah 2020

This is the 2020 which doesn’t have Viognier added. 100% Syrah. Needs time. Will wait a few more years to open my other bottle. — 2 years ago

Innocent Bystander

Yarra Valley Pinot Noir 2019

An old favourite but not quite as stellar as I remember it from the 2015 vintage. Still good though. Blueberry and boysenberry. Sandalwood, some subtle oak and a feeling of dusty candystore. Good acidity and a couple of years can probably work miracles. — 3 years ago

Côtes du Jura Chardonnay Savagnin 2015

Youngish at sub 10 I suppose for a sav/chard under flor, but this is orgasmic. Worrying feeling ethat 2015 was a sub par year (cold? Wet?) And yet, here we are. Manzanilla salt lick at the end after a second or two is the party piece, apricots, smokey almonds, and all the usual Jura good things beneath. Was introduced to this by the sommelier in spanglais, with me deploying my most broken franglais. Miracles do happen. — 3 years ago

Memory failed me, 2015 a decent vintage for Ch and sav. Makes sense!

Domaine Belle

Cuvée Louis Belle Crozes-Hermitage Syrah 2014

Very nice structure acid that’s super subtle, sweet tarragon structured smell, super fresh pond in a moving water way smell too, easy with sort of a small cheeriness and tarragon at bottom, a sweet soft backend that sits and could work miracles with food that also sits — 6 years ago
