  • Tied with the Glaetzers 2004 for WOTN this baby was firing on all cylinders...

  • rich, dense nose - coffee, chocolate and dark fruits leading to a dense taste, full of ripe fruit and flavour. tannins are soft - barely discernable. very aussie style i.e. high alcohol content (14.5%)but quite well put together - one does not feel the alcohol due to the powerful fruit. This wine threatens to cross the line into the realm of jamminess, but succeeds in not doing so.

    a good wine, both in terms of value and in absolute terms, this fella screams "g'day mate". there is nothing wrong with that of course, even though i tend towards more balanced and restrained wines these days.

  • I opened this after our 10/4/13 Sherry tasting. It had a rich, ripe and expressive bouquet of cherry, raspberry, cola, sage, anise and spice aromas. The palate was rich, ripe and a little jammy with flavors of cherry, raspberry, cola, licorice and spice.

  • Very heavy bodied and dense Grenache. Too jammy for me but should hold its own against spicy chicken or BBQ meats.

  • - Crimsom color with slow forming legs and aromas of raspberry, strawberry, cedar and alcohol. It's somewhat balanced and has flavours of strawberry jam with a full body. Juicy texture with a long finish - For new world Grenache, this wine hits the points that you want. Full of opulent, almost jammy red fruit but shows some minerality, medium acidity, and some heat. Ripe fruit on the attack with softened tannins and good length on the finish. Honestly, I don't think you want to enjoy this wine past 2015, as it is drinking well now.
