Wendouree Shiraz Malbec 2017 Wine Review

This wine review is of Wendouree’s 2017 vintage of their shiraz malbec.  As a wine intended for long ageing, it is somewhat ridiculous to taste it in its youth but here we are.  At first the wine appears a little simple and opens reticently. But like many good wines, it builds weight and detailed structureContinue reading “Wendouree Shiraz Malbec 2017 Wine Review”

Dalwhinnie Shiraz 2006 Wine Review

This wine review is of Dalwhinnie’s 2006 Moonambel shiraz from the Pyrenees region in western Victoria. Dalwhinnie is the leading producer in this remote region. The shiraz style here is a crossover style – syrah like in manner, but in a warmer climate form with richer fruit. It reminds a little of Margaret River shiraz,Continue reading “Dalwhinnie Shiraz 2006 Wine Review”

L’Artisan Le Pinot Noir 2019 Wine Review

Moss Wood Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 Wine Review

This wine review is of Moss Wood’s 2017 cabernet sauvignon. It is an outstanding wine and, in 2017, a blend of 88% cabernet sauvignon, 8% petit verdot and 4% cabernet franc. Its aroma is an appealing expression of blackcurrant and (expensive) cedar. On aroma I would have anticipated a higher portion of new oak, perhapsContinue reading “Moss Wood Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 Wine Review”

Château Latour 1964 Wine Review

This wine review is of Château Latour’s 1964 vintage. It is very special to taste wines of this calibre. Cellared since its purchase in the day, 57 years have passed since its vintage and the wine is still vibrant and joyous. Fully mature, the wine opens to aromas of leather, earth and old cedar. AmazinglyContinue reading “Château Latour 1964 Wine Review”
