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.

Yalumba Eden Valley Syrah 2021


This Eden Valley Syrah found its mojo after a couple of days of tasting. To say it developed wonderfully in that time would be an understatement. Give it a good decant or some time in the cellar and kick back to be rewarded for your patience.

If aged Riesling spins your wheels, get amongst this late release from Spinifex. Wonderfully concentrated, it still has many years of pleasure ahead.

Chaffey Bros Tripelpunkt Riesling 2017

A museum release from Chaffey Bros, I was fortunate enough to give this a road test at Artisans of Barossa recently. With over 40 wines on tasting, there are plenty of gems to uncover. If aged Riesling is your thing, this is a beauty.

Tomfoolery Eden Valley Equinox Shiraz 2021


The prettiness and vibrance of Eden Valley Shiraz glisten. There is a juicy factor here too. Glorious and then some, you may be determined to not share a drop, and fair enough too. What a beauty this is from Tomfoolery Wines.
