Bin 2 South Australia Shiraz Mourvedre 2012

See 2 previous notes on Delectable. Much the same now. Very plummy on nose and palate. Meaty notes on the nose. Plum and raspberry on the palate. An excellent blend for Penfolds from their vast resources. Amazing the influence of the Mourvèdre for only being 11%. Shiraz is 89%. Paid $30 per bottle for this in 2016. Cheap for a Penfolds red. — 8 days ago

The Distance Shiraz 2005

Beautiful Aussie Shiraz. The smell is overpoweringly delicious. Tastes of juicy big fruits and some green leaf/menthol at the top of that fruit taste. Then slowly the tannin reveals itself at the end. Dare I say that this 05 is still a baby? Drinking really nicely now, good for at least mother 10. — 15 days ago

Amon-Ra Barossa Valley Unfiltered Shiraz 2006

Bottle Variation

First bottle, 3 months ago, was quite advanced in 👀👃👅, but with no other flaws (no oxidation/spoilage/or TCA taint)

2nd bottle:

DAY 1
Served with the Vinloq System
👀Dark ruby./purple. Youthful
👃Sweet fruit
👅Fruit forward with blurry flavors. Dry tannins with slight heat. Paired nicely with wagyu beef

Remaining wine Slow Decanted in my refrigerator

DAY 14
👃Spicy blackberry, anise, chalk, & dried fruit
👅Purple fruit, anise & chocolate. Not complex but tasty. Finishes spicy with some heat. Balanced sweetness. Lowish acidity. Nice wine 🍷

This second bottle was what I expected. What caused the first bottle to be so advanced?

Adelaide Hills Shiraz 2012

This developed positively from previous tastings here on Delectable. My brief notes - Liquorice; more savoury than fruit driven - Bacon, Charcuterie, spicy notes on the nose and medium weight palate. Some pepper. Very Northern Rhone in style. Certainly built for the long haul. I have 2 left - next in 2024. — 11 days ago

Poonawatta Estate

The 1880 Eden Valley Shiraz 2009

What a disarming wine. It’s so fabulously affable and approachable that it’s hard to turn a serious eye to, yet it has a depth and complexity that lingers well beyond that soft and silken upfront charm. Plum, cocoa, stewed fruit, blackberry, delicate tobacco, supple tannin. Slips dangerously over the palate. Feels like it’s drinking in its prime and will linger here for several years at least. — 6 days ago

Mount Edelstone Vineyard Shiraz 2005

2nd best wine. I called it Amarone and was shocked at what it was as I’ve had it a few times before. On the sweeter side with massive depth. Big wine with lovely texture. Medium plus finish. — 24 days ago

Bin 28 Kalimna South Australia Shiraz 2018

A bit tight upfront but definitely opened up as time went on. Concentrated dark blue fruit encapsulated by warm vanilla oak. Plenty of acidity and backbone to be tried again in maybe five plus years. — 8 days ago

The Boxer Shiraz 2020

Deep, dark Ruby with a big fruity nose and lots of ripe berries with oaky notes. Jammy big and bold blackberry flavors with some spice, cacao, cedar and leather notes with nice mouthfeel. Big yet soft tannins with berry fruit carried over to the finish with bits of oak and sweet spice. Nice! — 21 days ago
