O’leary Walker Blue Cutting Road 2008 Cabernet Merlot

Date: Fri, Aug 13, 2010

A very gluggable offering from this Clare Valley winery perhaps more known for their crisp Rieslings than their Cabernet Merlot.  But this plush spicy plum, juicy blackberry and chocolate wine will soon become a staple in your wine repertoire. While it has backbone and structure, it is made to be smooth and easy to [...]

Grant Burge Filsell 2008 Barossa Old Vine Shiraz

Date: Fri, Aug 13, 2010

Grant Burge has some very fine old vines and these grapes come from vines planted in the Barossa in the 1920’s giving this wine rich intensity & finesse well above its price.  The wine shines with bright purple youthful vibrancy. Perfumed blackberry, dark chocolate and smoky vanilla characters abound.  And after 20 months resting in [...]

Chalk Hill – no procrastination, just great wines!

Date: Thu, Jul 29, 2010

This week, I have been very lucky to taste some of the latest offerings by Chalk Hill Wines who are producing food friendly wines that are punching well above their fruitful weights on charm, price and cheekiness.  Just the fact that they have plenty to offer by way of diverse varietals handled well is heartening [...]

Chalk Hill 2006 Sidetrack

Date: Wed, Jul 28, 2010

The Sidetrack is a McLaren Vale blend of 60% Shiraz, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon & 10% Grenache.  It is redolent in it’s very ripe juicy berries, jammy plums and earthiness. There is no doubt that this is a big red, and certainly will be a winter warmer but it carries its might elegantly. Why not try [...]

Chalk Hill 2009 Procrastinator

Date: Wed, Jul 28, 2010

This vintage of the Procrastinator is 100% single vineyard Cabernet Franc from the McLaren Vale and is definitely something of a crowd pleaser from the Harvey family.  The nose has the perfumed berry fruit nose of Cab Franc but also has some dried rose notes.  For those who might be chasing a wine with less [...]

Chalk Hill 2008 Sangiovese

Date: Wed, Jul 28, 2010

The classic Italian visits McLaren Vale. But this is no visa overstayer, I think that Sangiovese is doing great things in Australia and providing us with an alternative to big hitting Shiraz.  Chalk Hill have done a slinky job on this Sangiovese – it is certainly a laid back rich fleshy Aussie style but with [...]

Grant Burge Adelaide Hills Kraft Sauvignon Blanc 2009

Date: Thu, Jul 22, 2010

Something for the Savvy B drinkers or just for anyone looking for a softly drinking white.  It is a nice gesture that the name of the growers – the Kraft family from Tanunda in the Barossa – are celebrated on the label.  With a portion being grown in the cool fresh climate of the Adelaide [...]

Tintilla Angus 2010 Semillon

Date: Mon, Jul 12, 2010

This was the first of the ’10 whites that I have tasted and I did enjoy the fresh zesty quality to this Semillon.  It is a very young Hunter Semillon but it is not all bones as there is some ripe fruit showing through. Made in the traditional style, it is dry, medium bodied with [...]
