Tous les Jours Santa Ynez Valley Syrah 2020

Porongurup Riesling 2016

Tasted blind, presented by Sue Bell. I picked Riesling, Australian and missed Porongurups WA. A brilliant Riesling made by Rob Diletti at Castle Rock WA. Lovely aromatics of Musk and Bath Talc. At 5 years the acid had settled and the citrus was going towards stone fruit. Really enjoyed this. — 3 years ago

Riverland Montepulciano 2019

Medium to dark Ruby. Dried meat and cherry, very savoury on the nose, earthy. Medium weight palate shows the same savoury earthy notes with red cherry. Great balance - nothing stands out overly. A good new world rendition of Montepuliciano with fruit from the Riverland in Australia but made at Bellwether In Coonawarra. A great accompaniment to homemade Pizza. — 7 months ago

@Anthony De Blasi Over say a hundred years Australia had welcomed many many Italian migrants to these shores. Largely all happy to work hard for a better life including In viticulture and wine making. Many adopted Sangiovese and Nebbiolo but now all kinds of Italian varietals have been grown including this Monte, Aglianico, Nerello Mascalese, Fiano etc etc. When we did vintage at Bellwether a couple of years ago I tried a Bianca d’Alessano for the first - a full bodied thick skinned white which likes warm climates and was grown again, in the Riverland. Just a cross section.

Thank you for the information, good to know! Ever had a Nerello from Australia?

Can’t say that I have Anthony. I’ve had an Australian Nero d’Avola on the odd occasion.

Porongurup Shiraz 2017

Consistent notes from a year ago when we visited the winery in Porongurup WA and spent a wonderful hour with Owner and winemaker Rob Diletti. I love these cool climate peppery Shirazes. Should leave having the next one for a couple of years. — 3 years ago
