Victoria Red Blend 2018

My bottle says “Red Wine, South Eastern Australia”, not “Victoria”. Requesting expert review is a joke as they sometimes don’t respond for months. I’m not going to take notes and keep track of them to fill out the info...it’s just not that important to me, just annoying. Pleasant wine but a tad sweet for my liking. — 15 days ago

Dalwhinnie

Moonambel Shiraz 2013

This is in a great place right now but will continue to develop for 10 + years. The integration of blue and black fruit with a wall of fine powdery tannin defines this wine. Rosemary, and floral notes mixed with the pure elegant fruit. Long, and serious. — 15 days ago

Yarra Yering

Dry Red N°1 Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2010

I have had this wine for a period of time and have been interested in opening it for some time. This is ths 2010 Yarra Yering Dry Red No. 1. A blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot, 9% Malbec and 8% Petit Verdot from Yarra Valley Australia.

On the nose there are strong notes of black cherry, blackberry, heavy licorice, tar, tobacco, black pepper, green bell pepper, leather and dark rich earth.

On the palate there are good expressive notes of black cherry, blackberry, black plum, green bell pepper, tar, black currant and earth.

The wine is full bodied with a smooth velvety mouthfeel, medium to medium+ acidity and medium to medium+ fine tannins with a medium to long black fruit tar finish. A beautiful bottle of wine with many years of life left. Continue having a wonderful week and make the remainder prosperous. Stay safe and healthy. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Bass Phillip

Issan Vineyard Pinot Noir 2011

5th and 6th bottles of the 2011 case drunk in the last week. Fruit has turned and now has overripe/raisin notes on nose but especially on palate. Still rich and complex, but it needs the freshness of youth to balance out the inherent body and ripeness of the fruit when first bottled. Drinks like a fully mature cab/shiraz. Spectacular in youth, but ages quickly. — 2 days ago

De Bortoli

Regional Reserve Heathcote Shiraz 2014

This was pretty good for an everyday wine and it was interesting to see it with some age. Jammy blue fruits and classic Healthcote chalk/mineral notes. — 16 days ago

Eastern Peake

Intrinsic Pinot Noir 2017

Luke Lambert

Yarra Valley Syrah 2019

Bright, light, transparent, only lightly extracted. Floral Cote Rotie-esque perfumes. Glimmering with red and purple berries on the palate, plus some subtle herbal notes. Joyful. Such a fresh rendition of syrah in the Souhaut mold. — 20 hours ago

Bass Phillip

Pinot Noir Old Cellar 2018

This is Bass Phillip’s entry level of about 6 different Pinot Noir Cuvées. In the glass a rich crimson in colour and a little cloudy which can happen when the wine is unfiltered as is often the practice at BP. Aromas of forest floor and compost heap. The palate is flavoursome with good concentration and amazing intensity for an entry level Pinot Noir. The fact that it is unfiltered contributes to this. Red fruits, cherry and also beetroot - earthy nuances. — a month ago
