Community Tasting Notes 12

    April 30, 2022 - Ridiculously deep dark colour. Sediment in the bottom of the bottle, so recommend a decant. Decanted for 2.5 hours. Dark blackberries, black fruits, sweet heirloom tomato, fennel, crushed herbs and a touch of liquorice. Slight smoky sweetness about it on the nose. So seductive. Very intense. All very together, nothing sticking out. Long long finish. Better with food. Got better and better with time!
    Wait 4-5 years. 98+
    Dad “it’s real and spectacular!”

    April 23, 2022 - This wine was enjoyed on Day 2 and was a very tasty leftover from a wine event from the previous night. Wine was apparently recorked and left for those to enjoy the tasty spoils! It was still locked up on a whole but showed well with a bit of air. Barossa Valley wine and was a neat comparison to the SamiOdi OurHill Shiraz from Eden Valley. This wine was black roasted fruits, vanilla and baking spices. Just seemed to have a much more roasted black fruit character but definitely was open for business and likely due to the 24 hr slow ox that it was graciously given by an unknown donor! This one could still use 5 years of bottle age and can go forever in the cellar!

    March 4, 2021 - Outstanding Barossa shiraz. It's flavour full-on, but has a really minerally, fresh, natural acidity that you don't often see in warm climate Shiraz. Blueberry, vanilla, blackberry, spice, herbs, hint of dark chocolate. Beautiful balance, memorable depth of flavour, and length that rolls on an on. It will age but it so good at five years.

    September 5, 2020 - beautiful regal pouring. Deep purple red. Needs a 2 hour decant and best cellared for another several more years.
