Lethbridge Menage Que Syrah Syrah Geelong Regional Shiraz 2008

Date: Sun, Nov 1, 2009 Wine Tasting

This is a nice sort of wine even though it has an atrociously verbose name, if I have it listed correctly that is as the Menage is on the back label only, perhaps appropriately discreetly. I believe it won a gold or something shiny at the last Geelong show and it’s a style that some [...]

Masi Costasera Amarone Classico 2000

Date: Fri, Oct 30, 2009 Wine Tasting

I’ve had this Masi Costasera Amarone in the cellar for a while - been meaning to drink it. Went to the beautiful Simone’s Restaurant in north-east Victoria, in the town of Bright, the other night and drank it with venison carpaccio and then oxtail gnocchi. Worked a treat. Only wish I’d decanted it - seemed [...]

Yarra Burn Blanc de Blancs 2004

Date: Fri, Oct 30, 2009 Wine Tasting

I’m well known (at least in my own mind) for not going a bunch on local sparklers…but this is very good, although different to Champagne. Mind you it still comes with a cork. *sigh*. You need a subscription to The Wine Front to see this part of the post

Mount Towrong Prosecco 2008

Date: Fri, Oct 30, 2009 Wine Tasting

I was recently asked whether any Australian region outside of the King Valley grows Prosecco - to which I answered, I don’t think so. Little did I know that there was a Macedon Ranges prosecco sitting on my desk at the time. Grown at 600 metres above sea level I believe. Price is something of [...]

Wirra Wirra RSW Shiraz 2007

Date: Fri, Oct 30, 2009 Wine Tasting

Wirra Wirra’s RSW Shiraz is named after Robert Strangways Wigley, which has to be one of the best names ever. Old Strangways played cricket for South Australia … which got me thinking about my own cricketing career. In my junior years I spent about seven years behind the stumps. Wicket keeper and opening batsman. Think [...]

The Wanderer Pinot Noir 2008

Date: Thu, Oct 29, 2009 Wine Tasting

This is the second Wanderer Pinot Noir from the 2008 vintage. It’s not the Upper Yarra version .. but it’s none too shabby itself. You need a subscription to The Wine Front to see this part of the post

Mesh Riesling 2009

Date: Thu, Oct 29, 2009 Wine Tasting

Mesh is of course the riesling collaboration between Jeffrey Grosset and Robert Hill Smith. The project started with the 2002 vintage and the standard has always been high. The quality of this 2009 certainly is. You need a subscription to The Wine Front to see this part of the post

Maddens Rise Shiraz 2008

Date: Thu, Oct 29, 2009 Wine Tasting

This too is made by Luke Lambert and so it’s no real surprise that it weighs in at 12.9 percent alcohol. For a modern day Aussie Shiraz. Speechless. You need a subscription to The Wine Front to see this part of the post

Fox Gordon Princess Fiano 2009

Date: Thu, Oct 29, 2009 Wine Tasting

I like the general shape of Fiano. It hits with flavour and then pulls up dry. Or this Fox Gordon version does anyway. You need a subscription to The Wine Front to see this part of the post
