Community Tasting Notes 9

    October 31, 2018 - Lighter style barossa blend of mataro shiraz grenache and cinsault with some age. Acid driven, juicy and moreish and probably at its peak although it was good on release. Grenache holding well. Nose a touch porty with some air but didn't come through on palate. Bit of saltbush does not distract. 90.

    December 23, 2017 - Showed promise early but after a few sips all that came through was a sour note on the middle palate. Already showing signs of being past it's best.

    March 26, 2016 - Essentially a SA red in style but as expected some restraint (not too much) and a bit of polish. Bright grenache fruits and strawberry hints keep the wine lifted. Not a keeper and not sure it will get much better.

    January 1, 2016 - Lots of pepper on the nose, not so much on the palate which shows excellent fruit, tannins are starting to resolve but still quite grippy, excellent weight and length - the pepper does put me off somewhat but this may fade, still a good drop - look again in 12-18 months

    October 21, 2014 - Still spicy but has definitely improved with bottle age.
