  • 1998 Plantagenet Shiraz

    Very dark purple, totally opaque with just a hint of tawny at the rim; perhaps slightly cloudy, though it's so dense it's hard to be sure. The nose is a slightly soupy one of indeterminate berry-ness. On the palate - wow! - alcohol hits big time. The wine is shown as 14%, which is not particularly high for Plantagenet, or Aussie Shiraz as a whole, but in this case I'm getting a burn that knocks the wine off-balance. A shame, because otherwise it's pretty good: loads of fruit, a nip of acidity, very fine tannins, and a long, smoky finish. As I said in my previous note, I've enjoyed many old Plantagenets enormously, and though this is good, it's not as great as some of them have been. I'll put that down to the vagaries of the vintage, or to wine-making choices that year. Still, an enjoyable and above all fascinating wine.

  • 2012 Domaine de la Motte Chablis

    Very pale gold. Attractive nose of lemon and chalk. On the palate, medium bodied or more, though unoaked; good acidity and a long crisp finish. This is what I'd call a classic, thirst-quenching Chablis. 12.5%, cork.

  • 2005 Peter Lehmann Riesling Wigan

    Superb. Incredibly complex limey aromas, with just a touch of kerosene. An initial burst of apparent sweetness followed by a very long dry finish. Vibrant acidity: no sense of ageing. An unmistakably Australian expression of Riesling: undeniably brilliant. Joyous. 11.5%, screwcap.
