- Wendouree Shiraz Mataro 2016 – 93 Points; Gary Walsh; The Wine Front, “I love the meaty hazelnut thing that Mataro brings to the table, and that umami character is strong here. Blackberry, some spice, mint chocolate, camphor in the background. Medium to full-bodied, quite chunky and tannic, perhaps a little raw and blocky, furry maybe, at least within the frame of reference for the 2016 Cabernet / Malbec wines from Wendouree. Acidity is fresh, cool and fine, though the tannin clumps on the finish a little. It’s somewhat primal, and primary. Unresolved, though I suspect time may treat it well. Let’s see.” Tasted: Jul 18; Alcohol: 13.7%; Closure: Screwcap; Drink: 2023-2036
- Chateau Prieure-Lichine Margaux 2015 – Jancis Robinson – 16.5/20 – “Purplish crimson. Intense savoury perfume. Not that much sweetness on the palate; some inkines on the end. Dry finish. Far from the most charming but a decent effort. Chewy and solid.”
- Il Palazzone Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2010 – 95 points – James Suckling – “Wonderful texture to this Brunello with so much dried fruit, chalk, stone, salt and light chocolate character. It’s full body, fine tannins and bright acidity delivers a complete package with beauty and elegance.”
