SATC2 and the Wine-ista!

Date: Wed, Jun 9, 2010

Last night, I got to see Sex and the City 2 which I totally enjoyed as a moment of pure escapism despite the panning from the critics.  It certainly isn’t because I am a fashionista! Let’s face it, it is the closest I have got to fashion in too many years to count anymore and [...]

Bridgewater Mill Adelaide Hills 2009 Pinot Grigio

Date: Sat, Jun 5, 2010

A crisp and tightly held Pinot Grigio made in the Italian style. The Lenswood & Piccadilly fruit is delicate & mineral led thanks to a cool ripening vintage. Some lees & barrel work has added some palate weight and softened the acid but the fruit is fresh and crisp with plenty of nutty, pear, green [...]

Hungerford Hill Tumbarumba 2009 Chardonnay

Date: Sat, Jun 5, 2010

Again proving that Chardonnay’s from Tumbarumba can certainly deliver the goods.  This Chardonnay is filled with firm but ripe tropical fruit – more lychee than pineapple with some supporting vanilla backbone and adorned by some floral notes.  The fruit tumbles into the mid palate with generosity but the firm acidity ties it all together.  A [...]

Stags Leap 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon

Date: Thu, Jun 3, 2010

The Stags Leap Winery is often confused with Stags Leap Wine Cellars but nothing is confusing about this elegant wine. It is fuller bodied for a Cabernet, finely textured and rich with complexity and style. It is composed of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Cabernet Franc (for that fragrance) & 1% Merlot. Densely coloured, with fragrant [...]

Gosset Excellence Brut

Date: Thu, May 27, 2010

A fine Champagne should be rich in texture, flavour & aroma and should always have a fine and persistent line of bubbles. Gosset is one of my favourite Champagne Marques (brands), not only at this tier, but all their wines are superb.  I still have one extra special bottle of 1989 Vintage in a magnum [...]

Tilbrook Estate Reserve Shiraz 2006

Date: Thu, May 27, 2010

When you are visiting the Adelaide Hills region, make sure that you drop in to see James Tilbrook at his cellar door in Lobethal. He is passionate about his wine and when you start tasting you too will be very happy that you dropped in.  While this is the current vintage on sale, there will [...]

Shaw & Smith Sauvignon Blanc 2009

Date: Thu, May 27, 2010

Shaw & Smith have quite a reputation for their Sauvignon Blanc and after just a sip of this wine it is obvious why they are one of the benchmarks for Australian SB.  They are very honest about their vision ‘to make exciting, modern wines that rank amongst Australia’s best’. This SB is produced from a [...]

Penfolds Koonunga Hill Seventy Six Shiraz Cabernet 2008

Date: Tue, May 18, 2010

The Seventy Six is a winemaking tribute to the 1976 vintage, the first vintage of Koonunga Hill complete with retro label. It is heartening to see that some of the old Penfolds magic is flowing back to the brand’s sub $20 tiers. Tasting the Koonunga Hill Shiraz Cabernet 2008 side by side with this version [...]

Chrismont La Zona Marzemino Frizzante NV

Date: Thu, May 13, 2010

Another very interesting wine from Chrismont in the King Valley. There are very few producers of Marzemino in Australia but if you have a closer look at Chrismont’s wine portfolio, there are plenty of Italian surprises there and all worth seeking out.  A lightly frizzante red with sweet cherry, rich berries, some supporting toast and [...]
