Mr Riggs 'The Magnet' Grenache 2015
Ooh, smells pretty high-octane: less of the raspberry and softer red fruit, more toward the mulberry and plum. Fuller bodied, more of that red fruit shines here, take berries and masticate/ macerate to really bring to the fore. Tannin is present, fine-grain...

Summit Estate Alto Tempranillo 2011
Yes. From that vintage. What that doesn't tell, is of a wine purchased on the occasion of the first Queensland Wine Week in 2014. Those keen to find out more, can revisit the occasion of the coach trip to the Granite Belt through this promo video . It's dar...

Mr Riggs Yacca Paddock Tempranillo 2015
I've had to go on a bit of a diet of late, sometimes the enjoyment of life takes its toll. Paired this with some (diet version) Veal meatballs - a rather delicious pairing. Good Tempranillo just invites you in, regardless of the style aimed at typically off...

Deakin Estate Chardonnay 2015
Soft, floral, rounded, redolent of pears, lemony butter.  Carries this with convinction through to the palate. Layered, some texture and lime-centric core. Freshening acid.  It's of reasonable length. Not necessarily sure I would want to drink a heap of it ...

Rob Hall Harriet's Vineyard Chardonnay 2015
Citrus, buttermilk, wheaten, with peach-fuzz sensory of delicate stonefruit. Medium weight, minerally, awakens the senses with a burst of acid. Citrussy acid and flavour. Little textural feel to proceedings.  It's well balanced, doesn't seem to shout of any...

Rob Hall Yarra Valley Cabernets 2015
A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (80%), Merlot (15%) and Petit Verdot (5%). Smoke and ash sitting atop florals, dusky blackcurrant and the like. Fair twist of seasoning.  An easy going, languid style - initially. Perks up a little through the mid palate, perky...

Alkoomi White Label Chardonnay 201n
Plenty of which peach, a little toast too. Perfect - what you want and just gently hums: "Chardonnay".  Bit of toastiness - perhaps a little overdone, four and not three on the dial. Certainly gives carry, but in a bitter manner. Given where Aus Chardonnay ...

Chateau Yaldara Reserve Shiraz 2013
A whopping 16% alcohol, a wine that's dark, chewy, leathery - almost Biltong like, giving the hint to that size. Dense, concentrated, black fruit, almost tarry; the oak is shouting at the top of its lungs, and the black tarry fruit is more than a match in t...

Mr Riggs Mrs Viognier 2015
Subtle wafts of Apricot on show here, sitting atop a floral/ dried grassy/wheaten undertow.  Quite fine structured, elegant, crisp and snappy. Stonefruit hints, minerally. Avoids the overblown, blowsiness that can afflict. Shows a little oiliness by way of ...
