Fox Gordon Abby Viognier 2009

Date: Thu, Oct 29, 2009 Wine Tasting

I had to double check that I was tasting the right wine after the 2009 Fox Gordeon Fiano tasted like viognier … when I also had this viognier open. Poured the glasses afresh to be sure. To be sure. You need a subscription to The Wine Front to see this part of the post

Fox Creek Shadow’s Run Sauvignon Blanc 2009

Date: Thu, Oct 29, 2009 Wine Tasting

Well now then. This came in the other day and my first reaction was..”oh great..another SB..and from McLaren Vale at that!”. Anyway, I stuffed it directly into the fridge rather than into the samples room (for what reason I’m not entirely sure) and tasted it tonight after tipping a bit into my pasta sauce (I [...]

De Bortoli Reserve Sauvignon 2008

Date: Thu, Oct 29, 2009 Wine Tasting

I’m thinking this is a new release for De Bortoli as I don’t remember tasting a Reserve Sauvignon. Not sure of the price before. No sticker on bottle. You need a subscription to The Wine Front to see this part of the post

The Wanderer Upper Yarra Pinot Noir 2008

Date: Thu, Oct 29, 2009 Wine Tasting

There are less than 100 cases of this Wanderer Pinot Noir so if you want some, you’ll need to get in quick. I had no hesitation in buying. It’s the baby of Andrew Marks, part of the ace winemaking duo behind Gembrook Hill. Just to avoid confusion - The Wanderer made two Yarra Valley pinot noirs [...]

Lethbridge Pinot Gris 2009

Date: Wed, Oct 28, 2009 Wine Tasting

Lethbridge’s pinot gris weighs in at 12.5 percent alcohol. Interesting in itself. Last week I tasted a pinot grigio with an alcohol content of 14.5 percent. Though it’s the flavour profile that counts … I suppose. You need a subscription to The Wine Front to see this part of the post

Maddens Rise Chardonnay 2008

Date: Wed, Oct 28, 2009 Wine Tasting

It’s made by Luke Lambert - which means all wild yeast, old oak, minimal fining and no filtration. It’s grown on a vineyard at Coldstream managed by Stuart Proud, who’s slowly introducing biological farming techniques to the vineyard (biological farming is like biodynamics minus the mystical elements). A label to watch. You need a subscription to [...]

Hollick Shiraz Cabernet 2006

Date: Wed, Oct 28, 2009 Wine Tasting

It’s 65% Shiraz and 35% Cabernet Sauvignon. I have a slight cold too, although miraculously it’s only affecting my tasting ability by about 15%..plus or minus an acceptable scoring variance of 1.5%. You need a subscription to The Wine Front to see this part of the post

How Yalumba’s Louisa rose to the top

Date: Wed, Oct 28, 2009 Wine Tasting

This article on Yalumba’s Louisa Rose first appeared in The Bulletin magazine in 2007. Given how good the Yalumba range of wines is now tasting, it seems like an excellent time to re-publish it. THAT 36-YEAR-OLD Louisa Rose now has one of the plummest jobs in Australian wine is not far shy of a miracle. When [...]

Joseph Perrier Cuvee Royale Brut NV

Date: Wed, Oct 28, 2009 Wine Tasting

This could be exclusive to Dan Murphy stores - I’m not 100% sure. The label says - amusingly - that it’s made with a blend of “35% chardonnay, 35% pinot noir and 35% pinot meunier”. Which means either a) you really do get a lot for your money, or b) you can’t believe anything the [...]

Rutherglen Estates Sparkling Shiraz Durif 2008

Date: Wed, Oct 28, 2009 Wine Tasting

My only quibble with this wine is that I wish it was cheaper - so that I could lob up for a dozen. Crowd pleasing sparkling red. You need a subscription to The Wine Front to see this part of the post

Yalumba Vermentino 2009

Date: Wed, Oct 28, 2009 Wine Tasting

More evidence of the fine form Yalumba is in. Vermentino from Langhorne Creek, no less. You need a subscription to The Wine Front to see this part of the post

Final Cut Montage Shiraz 2008

Date: Wed, Oct 28, 2009 Wine Tasting

First time I’ve tasted one of these First Cut wines though I see that the brand has been around for a few years. Mostly to the US by the looks of the reviewers of past vintages. You need a subscription to The Wine Front to see this part of the post

Craggy Range’s Sophia is a blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc. It’s grown on the Gimblett Gravels at Hawke’s Bay and of course, 2007 is an acclaimed vintage. You need a subscription to The Wine Front to see this part of the post
