Cool whites for a warm Spring


Katnook Founders Block Sauvignon Blanc 2012 ($15-18) – A refreshing and juicy style of Sauvignon Blanc that has a softer acid lick to its varietal passionfruit and pear character. A good wine to chill out to.

Omrah Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2013 ($18) – Fragrant, with grapefruit, passionfruit and a fresh pinch Read More

Three Australian red wines that you will want this weekend…..


Majella Musician 2012 ($18)
– A Coonawarra gem that is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Shiraz. Lashings of blackcurrant and plum fruit are complemented with some soft vanilla and earthy dried herbs. Soft and silky, the musician is well integrated enough to enjoy its cheerful freshness now. Very quaffable.

Toppers Mountain 2011 Red Earth Child ($38) – Dusty spice add even more Read More

Brokenwood Mistress Block Shiraz 2013



Up front I have to tell you that this wine is not available just yet, I simply did not want to forget posting this review while waiting for it to become available. As with any Mistress Block release, when it is released get it quick before it sells out, something past vintages have been proven to routinely do.

Just like the more famous Graveyard Shiraz, the Mistress block is a single vineyard Hunter Valley Shiraz with elegance and freshness at heart. Ripe berry and cherry fruit is melded with warm cinnamon, caramel and earth. The medium body is fleshed out with intense fruit and soft powdery tannins. A wine that is a story of finesse now or you could give it a run in the cellar mid term.

Date:  August 2014   Price:  $75+    Value: $$$   Drink: Now – 7+ years
