Top Shiraz from Audrey Wilkinson
2014 was a great Hunter Valley Shiraz vintage, and here’s two more notable releases, this time from Audrey Wilkinson. Audrey Wilkinson also have one of the best cellar door views in the Hunter, though the hill out the front is …

Now here’s a label you need to get onto. Juxtaposed is the new label of Wes Pearson, who’s Dodgy Bros wines I’ve covered extensively in the past (have a squizz here for an example). With the Juxtaposed line Wes is still working with the same partners and…

Soul Growers Cellar Dweller Cabernet Sauvigon 2014

Soul Growers Cellar Dweller Cabernet Sauvigon 2014 I love that this was inspired by the 1953 Orlando Barossa Cabernet. Why set benchmarks that are foreign when greatness is so close?  This Cab is likely to be a bolder iteration than those old Orlando…

BEER: Holgate Hop Tart Semi-Sour Pale Ale

Holgate Hop Tart Semi-Sour Pale Ale Pale Ale meets sour. God I’m tired of these hybrid beers – conceptually they promise much, but in reality it’s just a car crash. That said, it is hard to achieve decent balance in sour beers, and Holgate otherwise make…

BEER: Lord Nelson Backburner IPA

I like the ‘wit IPA’ concept but it often produces middling beers, almost like the quest for balance is too hard. Numbers: 42 IBU. This Lord Nelson Backburner IPA has the banana porridge wit beer flayva and thickness, but you’d be hard pressed calling…

Now here is a classically proportioned Langhorne Creek red at a sharp price. I say classically proportioned because this Bremerton Coulthard Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 is a biggun’. Dark red colour, boatloads of choc mint and blackberry on nose and palate,…

It’s always a pleasure when you spot a little inkling of greatness in a young wine. That point when it all clicks and you step back and think ‘wine is amazing’.

It's roundup time! Monster January 2017 roundup edition

It’s that time again – time to roundup a selection of wines that didn’t quite make it onto the site. Some because of time and space, others because they failed the grade, this January 2017 roundup is a biggun’.

Balgownie Estate Centre Block Shiraz 2014

If there is one winery whose new release wines I’d like to see with more bottle age it is Balgownie. There’s a sturdiness to the structure of the Bendigo reds which suggest they’ll a) live forever b) look better in 3-5yrs. No exception here.

From the cellar: Vignoble Dampt Les Preuses Chablis Grand Cru 2010

I opened this on Vignoble Dampt Les Preuses Chablis Grand Cru 2010 on Christmas Day with high hopes. Preuses is one of my favourite Grand Cru, and all the ’10 Dampt Freres wines were drinkable at the least when tasted about 3 years back. In retrospect,…

Tim Adams Clare Valley Pinot Gris 2016

Tim Adams Clare Valley Pinot Gris 2016 Please Aussie wine world, send us more textural Pinot Gris and less flavourless Pinot Grigio. It’s the right thing to do.
