B = Purchased
S = Smelled
T = Tasted
W = Wishlist for another day (most of the wines are want?s at some point but given limited budgets, the ones I really want to come back and grab a couple of).

 

Riesling 2013 [S+W]: ?Chalky shite flowers, Pear Apple combo on the nose.

Semillon 2013 [S]: Fruity almost cider lime twist on the nose.

Rose 2013 [S]: Strawberry nose, delicate.

Pinot Noir 2013 [S+W]: Makes the saliva flow, red fruity nose with slightly smoky background notes.

Shiraz 2010 [S]: White pepper dominates the nose, cherry fruits also.

Late Harvest Sauvignon Blanc [S]: A familiar scent that I could not put my finger on, Almost citrus flower, dusty, good nose (dash of Viogier in it).

Sweet White [S]: Christmas cake, rum + molasses on nose. (told it tastes smooth by mum who I was being chauffeur for)

Muscat [S+T]: Nose spirit edge to it; ?spicy, light in ?mouth good length.

Port [S]: Spirit edge here, coffee, toffee and co come through.

 

Overall the Pinot?and Riesling were the standout here. The fortifieds seemed to be showing signs of their fortification spirits which as off putting. The Shiraz was enjoyable, but not standout and would have no qualms about drinking a bottle.
