Following on from yesterday’s ‘Sangiovese in situ‘ post, today it’s the turn of Chianti Classico. This lineup was presented directly following the Sangiovese bracket and follows the same format. Again, comments from Albiera and Paolo are in italics (AA…

I’m in catchup mode here, as this tasting was part of Seminar 1 of the Working With Wine series, and Seminar 2 is happening this week. Excuse my tardiness. Essentially this ‘Sangiovese in situ’ bracket was a warm up for a day of Tuscan reds. A sighting…

Bimbadgen Signature Series Shiraz 2014 I always like retrying wines after they’ve been in bottle for a while, if purely for the intrigue of a wine’s personality changes. With young red wines the change is often positive, but at other moments a sullen…

Longview Yakka Shiraz 2014 I’ve always seen Longview as more of a white wine producer than red, with ripeness (both under and over) issues in many years. This Shiraz bucks the trend, however, as it is perfectly ripe. Hand picked, cool fermented, and…

It’s that time again. These wines haven’t quite made a full write up this month. Odds and ends… Sunshine Creek Yarra Valley Cabernets 2013 No back label. Feel the mystery! Not quite in the same realm as the very smart 2012, but still there is depth here.…

BEER: Dainton Family Brewing Co. Insane Uncle IPA This comes with a lengthy story about how insane it is. Fun, but the beer isn’t that wild at all. A blend of Warrior, Columbus, Simcoe, Citra, Mosaic and Galaxy hops. Then Vienna, Light crystal and…

Kaiju! Beer Compendium Monastic Red IPA Kaiju does it again (after this one). This was brewed especially for GABS this year. Plenty of hops, seven different types of malt, and some Belgian yeast for good measure. The result is somewhere in between a red…

All Saints Family Cellar Durif 2012 I’ve always wondered about how well Durif sells. Well suited to northern Victorian vineyards, no doubt, but still somewhat of an obscure variety in the scheme of things. Or is it? This All Saints Durif certainly has the…

Gundog Estate Hunter’s Shiraz 2015 Easily the standout wine in the ’15 Gundog Estate Shiraz releases tasted to date. 2015 is a tricky vintage in the Hunter with wet conditions and hail smashing crops. This comes from the Somerset vineyard and spends 10…

Sunshine Creek Heathcote Shiraz 2013 This is the pick of the latest Sunshine Creek releases. Cork sealed, with a heavy bottle, this was made by Mario Marson. Matured in French oak for 15 months. It’s old school, but there is quality here. Deep ruby…

What are you buying this July? It’s that time again. Following on from this article back in May, I’m keen to know what you’re buying (or at least considering buying) this July. My motivation here is simple – I am living vicariously through you all, as I’m…

Tim Smith Wines Reserve Barossa Mataro 2015 I first got wind of this wine earlier in the year when hassling Tim for a vintage report. He let slip that the first ever Tim Smith Wines (TSW) Reserve Mataro was in the works, and likely that there would be a…
