Pretty ordinary dry red. Disappointing and hopefully a lesser vintage result. The 2010 was pretty good.

Vibrant ripe floral fruit with a hint of botrytis; super sweet and luscious. Barley sugar and fruit. Sweet apples. Very pleasant but simple.

Much more evolved in colour than the 2004; hickory smoke and more red fruits here. Some peppery bramble; quite sweet ripe fruit, very concentrated. Lots of potential but needs time.

I forgot how much I love this wine. Smooth, lovely fruit flavor but with complexity. But it's the smooth finish that makes this special.

I read that there were notes of strawberry and boy were there! This was a medium bodied, blood-red grenache with berries and spice on the nose. Very little tannins and we loved the hints of plum, cherries and again strawberry. It paired great with our steak and root veg.

I liked this a lot on the first night but thought it a little pricy. The second night it was improving a lot. One for the long haul (tree bark permitting).

Quite fragrant, bitter-y apricot kernel comes to mind. Good weight on the palate.This is serious stuff, a bit pricey but worth a try, lovely expression of the variety.

Slightly reduced notes on opening, but they blew off in short order. A nice wine of bright berry fruit and creme de cassis. Sleek and well made, but nothing to write home about.

A perfect cork. Dark purple. Soft, balanced and delicious with prominent blueberry. Not particularly complex. Will probably be at peak in about 5 years?

5/15/2015 - rhafeez Likes this wine: 88 points

The wine looks crimson colored. The legs are fast. There is moderate sediment in the bottle. It smells like forest floor, dust and flint. It tastes like espresso, oak, black pepper and tobacco. The body is medium/full. The wine has leathery texture. The wine finishes medium. The wine has medium acidity.

2001 Yalumba Shiraz The Octavius

Barossa Valley more

5/14/2015 - Wine-Strategies wrote: NR

PnP as a backup bottle. Opens to very dark ruby, no sign of age. Initial aromas are cedar closet, dust, cinnamon, graham cracker. After 5 minutes in the glass, raisin, soil, fresh boysenberry. Served at 58F, this is fresh (acids), though the fruits definitely run to the (very) dark side; mature on the palate, not very complex at all. Drinks like a mature (5eme) claret, not a Syrah - at this temperature at least. Oh well, worked with my grilled Prime filet, so the rest is history. Will save some for tomorrow and will update if significantly changed. 13,5% abv (fully resolved), drink now.

After/as it warmed, some mature port notes, with fig and prune, mixed with a fringe of VA. An off bottle? Sure hope so.

** update: day 2** wildly more interesting, with some milk chocolate and mint mixed with black and blue berries; even a touch gamey (no figpaste, prunes); vanilla bean spice and some dusty soil notes. Well put together, this one. Nice.
Probably best to use an Ah-So to remove the cork.

2014 Yalumba Riesling Y Series

South Australia more

5/6/2015 - Marc wrote: 79 points

Well constructed, commercial riesling designed for early drinking. Lowish acid, but still enough to add some definition. Surprisingly advanced colour. Pretty kaffir lime leaves on the nose and a slight hint of melon and green apple on the palate. The finish has a lack of definition with a touch of honey. Slight residual sugar (1.3 g/l) This may well age (under stelvin) but I do not see this improving. Easy to drink now with good varietal character, if not the true character of terroir that the great Clare rieslings possess.

Concentrated, ripe and a bit burly, but pretty much what you might expect here except that I was disappointed that I didn't get any added sophistication or depth from the viognier.

This wine didn't seem quite right and certainly not up to Yalumbas usually high standards, quite pungent with suggestions of brettanomyces, I hope it was a flawed bottle rather than a true representation of the wine

Not decanted but consumed over two hours and did not improve in the glass. This was angular and astringent, green, tart berry and red currants, bitter asparagus, bay leaf, old tea. No indications of a flawed bottle, just a disappointing wine from a bad vintage.

2007 Yalumba Grenache Bush Vine

Barossa more

4/22/2015 - Purslane Likes this wine: 90 points

This wine is a good Grenache for lovers of Pinot Noir. The color is ruby with a medium body, but the flavors are delicious and the wine is enjoyable by itself and delightful with food. At the $8.50 I paid, a fine value. The flavors actually echo some of the best rose wines from Provence in France - primarily raspberry with the some secondary cherry and strawberry. Despite being served along with bigger, darker, and more powerful wines, I still not only enjoyed this wine, but kept coming back to it.

It had been at least six months since my last bottle and the difference was striking. The initial imbalances have given way to a fabulous example of this most Australian of blends. Deep, dark red in the glass and a richness on the nose and on the palate. Plenty of black fruit as would be expected and a wonderful finish. A very well made wine with years left in it.
