    November 3, 2021 - NobleRottersSydney - Barossa Old Vine (Fix, St James, Sydney): {cork, 14.4%} [Greg] Fine-looking cork, extracted at table. Far and away the most savoury of the reds tonight. Dusty, leathery, spicy nose, developing in character. Ticks all the medium boxes for weight, acid, chalky tannin, and indeed length of finish. The oak is subtly grainy, and spiced plum with currant fruit is most present on the evolving palate. This is fairly ready now, but will hold a while. The most old-world of the table wines here tonight, and it’s the quintessential Oz blend!

    May 15, 2021 - Drinking nicely, secondary characters starting to show, long balanced finish, a little Christmas cake in there as well

    September 1, 2020 - Just really good drinking with nice rich fruit, soft tanins, and good length. Great balance between the Shiraz (black currant, chocolate) and Cabernet (grassy, herbaceous notes).
