What’s in the glass tonight March 30th


From the Cellar: Sacred Hill Rifleman Chardonnay 2009 – $$$

L and I worked like mad over the weekend sanding the timber floors in our house ready for staining and clear finishing. Hard back-straining work. But the result was worth it. I’m stoked.


To celebrate I knocked the top off one of my best wines.

Deep bright yellow. 14%.  The smell and the taste all bound up together in a complex intellectual drop.

It is mature, a bit hot even. Very toasty. Oily. It seems tainted by oxidative notes but hang on, I’ve been here before and maybe this is how this wine is meant to taste? I like it muy grande.

Mouthcoating. Long, long. 4+
