Aging nicely, balanced, good finish, an enjoyable wine that's ready to drink now with a good few years in front of it.

Nice fizz, quite large bubbles that fade quite quickly to small and fine, honeysuckle and citrus with a good line of acid. Picked up on clearance so has been sitting on a bottle shop shelf for a long time but @ $25 a bargain for mine

2019 Apogee Pinot Noir Alto Northern Tasmania

Amazing experience for such a young wine. It is lighter in colour than I expected, red fruits, strawberry and cream, balanced, velvety, silky in texture but light bodied, some spice and a long finish - yum. This was my first try of Apogee Pinot Noir and it reminded me of some Tolpuddle's I've had with 5 or 6 years bottle age - but more. I will get more, but I'm not sure if I will be able to leave any alone to find out if they improve with time.

Last bottle, pop n pour - I think it would have been better decanted as a little below my memory of the last one I had but still very enjoyable

Very nice, a different style than I had had before. Concentrated flavours, red fruits, rose petals, firm tannin and juicy acid.

A savoury Shiraz, enjoyable

2018 Blue Poles Reserve Allouran Clean Skin Margaret River Red Bordeaux Blend
8/7/2020 - A_Steady Likes this wine:

Changeover cleanskin from Blue Poles, an unknown mix of Reserve Allouran (majority) and Reserve Merlot. Bottles in the 6 pack vary up to pure/almost pure Reserve Allouran, I don’t know what this bottle was but regardless it is the best cleanskin I’ve ever had.
Strong, concentrated, silky tannin and velvety in the mouth with a long finish. Black currant and red fruit. Looking forward to the rest, they can keep me occupied while the labeled Reserve Allouran Deux Ecus 2018 slumber

Very nice, a pleasure to drink. Just slightly behind the '10 Moppa Springs I've had though for me.

Ok and easy drinking but quite sweet. I would not have known it was a Grenache if tasted blind.

My first Marius wine, thoroughly enjoyed it. I often get a kerosine taste in MV wines, but thankfully not in this. (No problem with kerro in aged Riesling)

First of 3, wasn’t sure what to expect but it was an enjoyable wine. A bit lighter than other vintages I’ve had but not to it’s detriment.
