Running with Bulls Tempranillo 2008

Date: Tue, Oct 27, 2009 Wine Tasting

Love the packaging, the delivery and the wine. Not so keen on the ridiculous (no doubt marketing department inspired and used to running with bullsh*t) drivel on the label. You need a subscription to The Wine Front to see this part of the post

Gembrook Hill Chardonnay 2006

Date: Tue, Oct 27, 2009 Wine Tasting

Gembrook Hill’s chardonnay is wild yeast fermented and matured in 25 percent new French oak. The vineyard is at the more elevated, southern (cool) end of the Yarra Valley - indeed, when they first planted, many thought they wouldn’t be able to get grapes ripe - so it’s no surprise that the alcohol level is [...]

Macedon Ridge Blanc de Blanc 2004

Date: Tue, Oct 27, 2009 Wine Tasting

This Macedon Ridge Blanc de Blanc spent 42 months on lees - and remarkably, it may well have needed some extra time. It’s an interesting wine. You need a subscription to The Wine Front to see this part of the post

Shadowfax Gippsland Chardonnay 2008

Date: Tue, Oct 27, 2009 Wine Tasting

It’s a single vineyard wine (reading from the back label) “grown at Tambo in East Gippsland”. Interestingly, the label also describes the wine as “distinctively coastal in style” - which is a phrase I’ve heard one or two winemakers use, but I’ve never before seen in print (I don’t think). I wonder what “distinctively coastal [...]

Katnook Estate Odyssey Cabernet Sauvignon 2005

Date: Sun, Oct 25, 2009 Wine Tasting

Drinking an Australian Cabernet alongside Bordeaux always exaggerates (although highlights might be a better word) just how sweetly fruited and minty much of our wine is. I reckon we develop a high tolerance, a sort of local immunity, to mint and eucalypt flavours as a result. You can watch some Katnook Telly here.. Listen [...]

Chateau Grand Puy Lacoste 2006

Date: Sun, Oct 25, 2009 Wine Tasting

I opened this thinking we might be having a quiet night in, but that wasn’t to be, so I tried it again a day later, from centre stage in the arena of the unwell, and liked the trajectory of its javelin. You need a subscription to The Wine Front to see this part of the post

Penfolds Cellar Reserve Sangiovese 2006

Date: Sun, Oct 25, 2009 Wine Tasting

I’m not sure I ever really got the hang of this wine - interesting. You need a subscription to The Wine Front to see this part of the post

Rene Geoffroy Volupte Blanc de Blancs NV

Date: Sun, Oct 25, 2009 Wine Tasting

For a bloke with such an abysmal palate, importer Neville Yates of Eurocentric Wine is picking a fair few winners This is labelled as NV, although I’m told it’s all 2004 vintage. You need a subscription to The Wine Front to see this part of the post

Nicolas Feuillatte Brut Reserve Particuliere NV

Date: Sat, Oct 24, 2009 Wine Tasting

I opened this last night in a mixed bag of local sparkling and Champagne and found it to be excellent. I reviewed it a year or so ago with less enthusiasm, so either I’m inconsistent or this particular batch/blend is much improved. Perhaps a combination of the two. Writing notes on NV champagne is a [...]

Mantra Invocation Chardonnay 2009

Date: Sat, Oct 24, 2009 Wine Tasting

Mantra’s 2009 chardonnay has some obvious, cedary, creamy oak influence but it still surfs the wave of modern Australian chardonnay - where fresh, crisp characters are the key. It’s still a bit young - it needs at least another few months in the bottle to start hitting its drinking straps. You need a subscription to The [...]
