Toolangi Estate Pinot Noir 2006

Date: Mon, Nov 2, 2009 Wine Tasting

This Toolangi Estate pinot noir was grown at Dixon’s Creek in the Yarra Valley, and was made at Yering Station. There’s a touch of brown to the colour, but you’d never know it to smell and taste. You need a subscription to The Wine Front to see this part of the post

Zilzie Regional Collection Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

Date: Mon, Nov 2, 2009 Wine Tasting

Value cabernet from Coonawarra. If you look around - away from the established Coonawarra names - there are some very good examples to be found. You need a subscription to The Wine Front to see this part of the post

Moss Wood Amy’s 2008

Date: Mon, Nov 2, 2009 Wine Tasting

71% Cabernet Sauvignon; 11% Petit Verdot; 11% Malbec; 7% Merlot and the precision with which they describe the composition of this wine on the Moss Wood website is something to behold. Two tastings of this wine now (already!) with the second being more favourable than the first. You need a subscription to The Wine Front to [...]

Deviation Road Reserve Chardonnay 2007

Date: Mon, Nov 2, 2009 Wine Tasting

Oh well now, wines like these make my job a little tricky. I’m not sure whether this is an aberrant bottle or whether that’s just how the wine is..and some people don’t notice (website indicates favourable reviews). It’s screwcapped and recently sent so will review as is. You need a subscription to The Wine Front to [...]

Alluviale Merlot Cabernet Franc 2007

Date: Mon, Nov 2, 2009 Wine Tasting

This is Merlot 62% and Cabernet Franc 38%, which are two of my favourite grapes when rolled into one wine, from the Gimblett Gravels bits of Hawke’s Bay. A great follow up to the more refined 2006 vintage. You need a subscription to The Wine Front to see this part of the post

Matilda’s Vineyard Cabernet Merlot Franc 2007

Date: Mon, Nov 2, 2009 Wine Tasting

A new winery for me with vineyards in the cool bits of Denmark, where hopefully nothing is rotten due to regular spraying and low humidity during vintage You need a subscription to The Wine Front to see this part of the post

Cumulus Wines Rolling Sparkling Pinot Grigio Chardonnay 2009

Date: Mon, Nov 2, 2009 Wine Tasting

Well it’s a life full of surprises as I always say and one must always keep an open mind, but not so open that your brains fall out. You need a subscription to The Wine Front to see this part of the post

Spinifex MMVII Pablo VP 2007

Date: Sun, Nov 1, 2009 Wine Tasting

This VP from Spinifex is made with touriga nacional, tinta negra mole, tinta cao and tinta roiz grapes. Only 800 bottles were made - 500ml bottles that is. They’re beautiful bottles too, slender shouldered and classic. I love 500ml bottles - for table wines and for fortifieds. You need a subscription to The Wine Front to [...]

Hollick Cabernet Merlot 2006

Date: Sun, Nov 1, 2009 Wine Tasting

Did you know, rather astoundingly, that I’ve never been to the Coonawarra? I’ve been to lots of far flung corners too, but never Coonawarra. You need a subscription to The Wine Front to see this part of the post

St Hallett Gamekeeper’s Shiraz 2008

Date: Sun, Nov 1, 2009 Wine Tasting

I thought at first that this was the standard St Hallett shiraz. I thought it was pretty good value. At $21. Then I saw that it was the Gamekeeper’s Shiraz. At $15-ish. I started sitting up straighter … You need a subscription to The Wine Front to see this part of the post

Maverick Breechers Blend White 2008

Date: Sun, Nov 1, 2009 Wine Tasting

Not sure why this is called a blend when in fact it’s 100 percent chardonnay. Possibly an anti-statement on the saleability of Barossan chardonnay. You need a subscription to The Wine Front to see this part of the post

Principia Pinot Noir 2007

Date: Sun, Nov 1, 2009 Wine Tasting

Curiously, I reckon that the Pinot from Principia tastes more like Yarra Valley than Mornington. Perhaps it’s a sub-regional Mornington thing as I’m not entirely up to scratch with that area. You need a subscription to The Wine Front to see this part of the post
