It is hard to find a shiraz viognier below $20 so couldn't resist this bargain especially for our wine assignment (see website)  Logan Weemala #Shiraz Viognier 2013  A: Dark fruit with the Viognier (apricot) component apparent on the nose T: Dark plummy fruit with apricot tanginess from the viognier Tannins pretty smooth and integrated  Pretty good but slightly disjointed between the varietals  Like how giant robot Voltron is made up of 5 mini Voltron lions with 5 different pilots.  Awesome…

Trying this out as part of our #bargainhunting <$15 #wineassignment but also keen to investigate #HunterValley #Pinot Noir as well as a warmup for @Pinot_palooza on Monday. Tyrell's Old Winery Pinot Noir 2015 After a bit of time in the glass you get strawberry on the aroma Starts with bright red fruit with a surprisingly thick smooth tannic body Like a female crossfitter it is feminine with a muscular body.  Not bad not great but good value for its price $12 #wine #winelover #winetasting…

It is far too hot in #Sydney today to get started on our assignment wines tonight (see our website). Definitely white weather  Coldstream Hills #Chardonnay 2014  Aroma: Peach with a dusty cedar Taste: Quite high acidity backed by a toasted oakiness.  Feels like it can go somewhere but stops very short.  When you're freewheeling down the highway and come up suddenly on a wall of traffic.  #wine #winelover #winetime #wineo #winenight #wineporn #winetasting #winestagram #instawine #vino #cheers…

I love @tyrrellswines stuff although this has mainly been from trying out their whites. I thought I'd give their base level #shiraz a go the #BrokenbackShiraz 2011.  This definitely needed some airing out. I left this for about an hour in the glass Dark fruit and acetone (maybe needed more time?) on the aroma Medium high acidity brings a brightness to the savoury length that hits midway. Quite interesting and challenging for $15 A catch up with an old flame. Takes a bit of time to air out…

So part of our shiraz blend wine assignment (see website) and was one of the more budget priced ($23) ones. I don't often see #shirazviognier at that price point very often!  Alkoomi 2010 #Shiraz #Viognier  A: Dark fruit dusty cedar notes. Viognier is subtle but pushed into the background  T:Plum but initial fruit quickly gives way to earthy savoury flavours. Tomato slight apricot tang mid solid tannic structure on the end  A bit too savoury and could use a little bit of sweetness. A toast…

First GSM I've come across with viognier added into the mix! An interesting one for our wine assignment (see website)  @Henschke Henry's Seven 2014  N: Great aromatics with apricot at the forefront T: Leathery finish with rounded tannins slightly mouth drying at the end  Dark fruit & plummy but with red fruit spikes. Smooth and supple  Pinpoints of stars across a dark velvet sky  #wine #winelover #winetime #wineo #winenight #wineporn #winetasting #winestagram #instawine #vino #cheers…

Tonight the ridiculous Sydney summer storms have put me in the mood for a red (despite the humidity) and I picked this interesting looking label at my local  Chalice Bridge The Quest 2008 #Shiraz #Cabernet  Cedar and cigar on the aroma Black Berry/Currant with a fairly firm tannic structure.  Very subtle earth toasty tobacco notes but predominantly fruit dominant.  Uncomplicated dependable and does the basics well. A classic fighter/tank in a hack and slash role playing game  #wine…

During my postgrad degree @ZilzieWines were the standard "house" drink at departmental gatherings. Seeing those gold Z's brings me back to dim lighting of Sydney Uni's Anderson Stuart courtyard on fuzzy Friday nights.  Surprisingly great aromatics. berries with an apricot tinge Red fruit quite simple but smooth tannins ending with dark chocolate bitterness.  A big hug from an old friend you fell out of contact for years.  #wine #winelover #wineblog #wineblogger #winetasting #winestagram…

Wow look at that a label! I'm hoping that this lives up to the gloriously over the top design.  La Boheme Act 3 #YarraValley #PinotGris  Some floral green apple and honey aromas backed by a subtle oakiness Apple on the taste. Lean and nicely balanced with a crisp acidity  Surprisingly more complex than I thought and lives up to the packaging. Like going to your favourite band's concert for the first time and finding out they are just as good live.  #wine #winelover #winetime #wineo…

Notch up another for our #bargainhunting <$15 #wineassignment. A #Borsao #Seleccion $12. Sold to me a "#Grenache Blend" which actually means a blend of Grenache #Tempranillo and #Syrah. Starts out with that leathery Grenache aroma on the nose which is a bit off putting. The taste starts promising with cherry flavour and pleasant smooth tannins but leaves you with a savoury barnyard funkiness of the Grenache coming back to bite you. Like a librarian with a kinky side it starts pleasant enough…
