Decent wine, not hugely expressive but all in balance and more than pleasant.

Past it. Lacking fruit and is very light, was never going to age well. Drink up if you have any is my advice.

Feel like this should have drunk better. Maderised?

Nothing fantastic here, honest.

Penfolds recommend drinking by 2017 for everyone with this still in the cellar.

I think it will be ok for a few year, but won't improve.

Honeysuckle, ripe tropical fruit, pear, stonefruit. Nicely balanced with a good finish.

Grab a few bottles and put away for 5 years.

Strawberry and rose water. Uninspired palate. Drink chilled/cold is my tip.

Had this after a heavy shiraz and a few beers.....

Cherry notes, medium bodied, short finish. Tasted thin to me. Drink in the next couple years.

All the other punters thoroughly enjoyed the bottle however so maybe my palate was shot.

Cherry nose. Didn't feel like this was complex on the palate. Medium/high alcohol, medium body, acid and tannins. Shortish finish

Was drunk after 30 minutes decanting, maybe needed longer? Limited aging potential?

Really nice. Lemon curd and mineral nose with acid still evident. Long finish, nice balance.

2nd bottle was defective, can't see it improving from here.

Citrus, ripe melon, pineapple acidic nose. Well rounded with good body, acidity and longish finish. Maybe too much alcohol. Was at its best when cold.

Good wine for the price.

Medium bodied merlot based wine with subtle tannin. Not a lot of structure or complexity but pleasant.

Can't complain for price point.

14.8% alcohol...nice and fruit driven, lighter bodied Shiraz. Balanced with a short finish. Did I mention the alcohol?

Nothing unpleasant, nice wine.

Nice wine, really crisp acid driven with plenty of tropical fruit.

Balanced and fresh, drink now.

Favourite new release red of the night. Nice complexities of flavours from the blend and well balanced overall.

Could use a few years to evolve I feel.

Another nice example from Boireann.

Probably my favourite white of the night. Good amount of body, nice balance and finish.

Another nice wine. Not much between this and the 2007 Merlot.
Nice secondary flavours and nose, well balanced.

Drink soon, not much more to be gained I would say.

Drink up soon.

Really nice wine for the price point. Had a bottle after work on Friday. Easy to quaff.

Nice full body, plenty of fruit on the nose and well balanced.

Bought off graysonline for $5/bottle so wasn't expecting much. Different label to most displayed so not sure if the same wine??

Had to be drunk cold and still wasn't overly appealing. Turkish delight and strawberry on the nose, little else in terms of complexity.

Finish was very off-putting, maybe too acidic?

Upon opening I got plenty of hay and leather on the nose before it turned quite pugnant.

It improved after an hour or so, although prune was evident throughout.

Was ok on the palate, didn't feel like it had much body, although the long finish was there.

Think it had just fallen apart a little too much. Purchased from graysonline, so unsure of cellaring conditions.

Will try again soon.

Nice drink now style Shiraz. Plenty of dark berry flavours with a hint of oak and spice. Nice balance of acid and tannins.

Very pleasant. Suggest drinking before 2019

Cherry flavours with some darker fruit finish. Nice easy drinking wine, medium body with a hint pepper, nice tannins and acidity pulling it together.

Great for the price point.

Dark red colour, dark red fruit and plums. Straw and loam notes. Medium body and acidity. Tastes to me like a big whack of oak, plenty of vanilla.

Short finish, medium tannins.

Drink now style, simple but pleasant.
