Rivulet Wines – Capturing the Magic

Rivulet Wines – Capturing the Magic

Of all Australian wine regions, Tasmania (if we are still able to lump the state together), is touted as the most exciting. It's certainly popular and the price of grapes is the most expensive in the country. New regions present a new hope and enthusiasm, but great...

Yangarra Ironheart Shiraz 2018 – One Year On

Yangarra Ironheart Shiraz 2018 – One Year On

Just for the heck of it, we recently decided to open a bottle of Yangarra's 2018 Ironheart Shiraz a year or so after its release. The 1.8Ha Ironheart vineyard is set high in McLaren Vale, and consists of sandy ironstone soil, and in these exposed almost arid...

Eisenstone Ebenezer Shiraz 2019 – One Year On

The Barossa Valley is Australia's most important fine wine region, owing to its history, size, commercial and qualitative success. When I first started drinking wine the Barossa Valley, as with all Australian wine regions, was thought of in the singular. A big region,...

Domaine Tempier Bandol Rouge 2019 – One Year On

Domaine Tempier Bandol Rouge 2019 – One Year On

Bandol is synonymous with rose and despite the high price, demand outstrips supply of Domaine Tempier rose every year. Their red, however, is another story, yet I can't help think wine drinkers are missing a trick by not taking their southern French odyssey a little...

Badia a Coltibuono Chianti Classico

Chianti Classico is one of the least understood wine denominations. Most of us, if asked where and what it is, would say something like 'it's the original part of Chianti', or 'the best Chianti's are Classicos'. Although these statements may be true, it doesn't really...

La Torre – Classic, complete Brunello

La Rioja Alta New Release – Autumn 2022

Autumn is the best season to drink the wines of La Rioja Alta. The first smoky wisps of winter, scents of fading flowers and the irrevocable sweetness of summer are glimpsed in these, most delicious bottles. The fruit is brighter than when I first drunk these wines 20...

Polperro – Australia’s Best ‘Burgundy’
