“Made in a distinctly savory, Rhône-like style, the 2014 Shay's Flat Vineyard Shiraz delivers notes of espresso, asphalt and black olives. Although not hard, it's a bit ungenerous on the medium to full-bodied palate even at six years of age, so I would drink up over the next few years.”
“Perfumed but also showing a touch of marshmallow, the 2017 Mathilda Viognier Marsanne is a plump, medium-bodied effort that rounds out the palate with a solid dose of ripe melon and apricot. Drink up over the rest of 2020.”
"There’s a bitter, chemical, oaky element to the nose of this wine that stands out above the dark fruit, chocolate and cola characters. The palate is equally arduous, with a good lick of acidity, sandy, savory tannins and sharp edges."
