    April 25, 2018 - Acid strong but solid release from a low-middle range wine. Easily last another 3 to 5 under screwcap. Youthful really and good drinking now.

    July 12, 2017 - Opened this last night, a very juicy shiraz that definitely punches above the original RRP ($20). It is good but hasn’t come together completely. It still as dark as can be, a touch oaky and some OJ acid but has a classy style about it that makes it all enjoyable and interesting. Very more-ish this one and no huge rush on opening, it is still quite primary.

    March 10, 2015 - A $15AUD Clare Valley shiraz that will go 10 years. A brownish tinge. The nose is like sticking your face in a cigar box. Has dark fruits as well, perhaps some blueberry. Palate has balanced out well, still a slight greenish tinge, which has been detected in previous notes. Tannins prominent, yet smooth. Not tired at all, good to go with some time ahead of it.

    April 17, 2014 - Gone full cycle on this one. Six years on, this is still quite primary, still a big wine. A deep purple colour, lovely nose of dark fruits. Has a more balanced palate than what my previous notes suggest eucalypt and licorice supplementing the fruit, quite prominent tannin. Plenty of time left in this one. There are quite a few layers to this, interesting to see how it evolves.

    January 13, 2013 - Did not enjoy as much this time around. It is not a completely balanced wine, it has quite a gren finish. I don't think time will resolve.
