2009 The Lane Vineyard Chardonnay Block 3

Adelaide Hills more

2/7/2015 - Jigs Likes this wine: 90 points

The wine looks yellow gold colored. The legs are medium. There is no sediment in the bottle. It smells like melon. It tastes like melon and vanilla. The body is medium. The wine has smooth texture. The wine finishes short. The wine has low acidity.

Whatever oak this wine had, has disappeared except for a small remnant on the nose. Seems to be light malo creaminess. As expected a wine of this aged from this producer was delicious.

1985 Mildara Cabernet Sauvignon

Coonawarra more

10/5/2013 - Jigs wrote: NR

Typical slight syrup colour for a wine this age. Not much on the nose. Slight pepper and heat. Doesn't engage the entire palette but still quite enjoyable.

Decanted for 3 hours and then used a aerator when pouring in glass.

Riesling Rocks (Royal Perth Yatch Club, Perth, Western Australia): Winner of Best Wine in the Qantas Wine Show of Western Australia. Pale straw colour. Crisp citrus and acid on the tongue. Would expect cellar for at least 15 years, possibly more.

Riesling Rocks (Royal Perth Yatch Club, Perth, Western Australia): Quite light, straw colouring. Slight kerosene on the nose. Citrus flavour is there but has been overtaken with a smoothness. Small amount of acid left.

1990 Castle Rock Estate Riesling

Great Southern more

12/2/2012 - Jigs Likes this wine: 93 points

Riesling Rocks (Royal Perth Yatch Club, Perth, Western Australia): Golden colouring. Pungent odour of petrol and sweat. Smooth but intense flavour. If this is what aged Rieslings become then I'm hooked.

2011 Howard Park Riesling Porongurup

more

12/2/2012 - Jigs Likes this wine: 90 points

Riesling Rocks (Royal Perth Yatch Club, Perth, Western Australia): Pale straw colour, light floral nose. Slight spice and well rounded on palate. Perfect for a hot Australian summer day now, or could easily be kept for another 15-20.

2011 Trevelen Farm Riesling

Great Southern more

12/2/2012 - Jigs Likes this wine: 90 points

Riesling Rocks (Royal Perth Yatch Club, Perth, Western Australia): Light, pale straw. Light fruit on the nose. I was surprised at the amount of spice from this wine. It is dry but there is a slight sweetness there that maybe suggests it would cellar well.

Great Southern more

12/2/2012 - Jigs Likes this wine: 85 points

Riesling Rocks (Royal Perth Yatch Club, Perth, Western Australia): Light gold in colour and aroma is barely there, toast and a hint of fruit. Dry, rounded flavour. Will need more time.

2002 Trevelen Farm Riesling

Great Southern more

12/2/2012 - Jigs Likes this wine: 85 points

Riesling Rocks (Royal Perth Yatch Club, Perth, Western Australia): Light gold in colour and smells like toast with a sweaty undertone. Very intense dry flavour with little residual sugar. I'm inexperienced with Riesling, but I think that this wine will need a little more time.

2009 Boekenhoutskloof Syrah Porcupine Ridge

Coastal Region more

8/25/2012 - Jigs Likes this wine: 88 points

My first South African Syrah.

Dark ruby coloured, with an almost gamey aroma. Smokey flavour which is quickly overpowered with a richness in forest floor flavours.

The thought off eating BBQ ribs with a smokey sauce comes to mind.

Enjoyed without food.

2005 Dominio de Tares Bierzo Bembibre

Mencía more

Had with Spinach and Ricotta Cannelloni.

Inoffensive aroma, tannic acid is still noticeable, lacks complexity and length. I think it still needs a couple of years.

2010 Hahndorf Hill Winery Pinot Grigio

Adelaide Hills more

7/1/2012 - Jigs Likes this wine: NR

Much anticipated follow up to the highest JH rated Pinot G in Australia.

Initially thought it to be overly fruity on the nose, but after a few minutes a clean, fresh aroma emanates. Strong caramel flavour hits the back of the palate.

Luckily I have another 5 to try over the next 5 years.

2003 Sandalford Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Reserve

Margaret River more

6/30/2012 - Jigs Likes this wine: 93 points

Had this over a marinated butterfly leg of lamb.

Darkened colour in patches (probably needed a couple of more years cellaring) Aroma was earthy with a hint of fruit remaining. Affects the entire pallet without any major intensity.

Give this one a few more years and I'd consider it Outstanding.

Most complete white wine I've ever tasted. I'm not a fan of Chardonnay and find SB and Semillion's too fruity. Has sparked my love of Gewürztraminer and Pinot Gs.
