Matthew Atallah Wines A2 Chardonnay 2019


This current release Chardonnay from Matthew Atallah is excellent. Those who enjoy rich styles are in for a treat.

Hoosegg Everything Is Going To Plan Chardonnay 2019


My last stop on Day 2 of my Orange adventure and I landed at Hoosegg. Cool wines, ripping labels, the attention to detail across the range is immense. This Chardonnay is rich and complex.

Byrne Farm Chardonnay 2019


The inaugural release of Byrne Farm Chardonnay and tasted at the cellar door with the boss man, Jeff Byrne. What a dude! Sore cheeks from too much laughing are the result of his company. He makes killer Chardonnay too. This sold out release was excellent!

Patina Wines Pinot Noir 2019


A super quick tasting of this Patina Wines Pinot Noir on a recent trip to Orange. I would have liked to see it evolve with a little more time in the glass, but time wasn't on my side that day.

Slow Wine Co Reserve Pinot Noir 2019


A step up from the vibrant and energetic 2021 Pinot Noir, this Reserve Pinot Noir is a barrel selection that puts the best forward. Moreish and persistent, this is excellent.

Hutton Vale Farm Cabernet Sauvignon 2019


This Hutton Vale Farm Cabernet is an excellent wine but it needs time to see it at its best. I came back to this after several hours in the glass and we were in business. A day on and it was even better. A keeper, tuck it away and you'll reap the rewards.

Heslop Wines Estate Shiraz 2019


All the Mudgee Shiraz I tasted during my recent exploration of the region was very consistent. Cudos to the region and the winemakers. This Estate Shiraz from Heslop Estate is all Glenn McGrath like - line and length. Big love.

LMB Wines Shiraz 2019


This is all things Mudgee Shiraz. Voluptuous tannins and generous dark fruit are lined up for the taking. A wine of even flow, there is a calming manner about its appeal - much like its maker.

Hutton Vale Farm Shiraz 2019


Curvacious, I'm a big fan of the shape of this wine. Not shy on generosity, hold this for a few more years to see it at its best.

Yalumba The Steeple Shiraz 2019


I can't stop sipping this. Actually, substitute sipping with drinking. Just wow. Super silky with delicate spices, feed this Yalumba The Steeple to me via a drip.

Terre à Terre Crayères Vineyard Reserve 2019


Xavier Bizot again proves he is the premier wine producer from the Wrattonbully region. This Vineyard Reserve deserves its time in the cellar. Do that and your patience will be rewarded deluxe.

After Five Wine Co Serata 2019


The blending of unlikely bedfellows Shiraz, Montepulciano and Aglianico (50/29/21) has delivered an absolute treat. A generous wine with a stunning savoury edge, be sure to decant to see it at its best.

Yalumba The Cigar Cabernet Sauvignon 2019


A great Cabernet that lives in the shadow of The Menzies. You don't miss out on too much here. It's another quality drop from Yalumba.

Seville Estate Dr McMahon Shiraz 2019


From the original 1972 Shiraz plantings, only 50 dozen of this 2019 Dr McMahon were produced. Silky with a rustic edge, it took a couple of days to get about its work.

Redman Wines The Redman 2019


A bit of Tina Turner action here from the gang at Redman Wines - the best! The best fruit and the best barrels are blended to produce The Redman in exceptional years.

Yalumba The Signature Cabernet Shiraz 2019


After 24 years at Yalumba, it is great to see Kevin Glastonbury as a co-signatory on this Yalumba The Signature 2019. Perhaps the best producer of the famed Cabernet/Shiraz blend in the country, the impeccable consistency he has achieved with labels such as The Caley and The Signature deserves nothing but praise. This 2019 is another superb release.

Parker Coonawarra Estate First Growth 2019


This is the first First Growth to see the hands of Ox Hardy. The difference is telling with the fruit picked a little earlier and certainly not as ripe as the 2018 vintage. There is a shape and prestige about its carry that is easy to admire. Pointed to a long future, stash this away to be rewarded deluxe.
