    Bilancia La Collina Syrah 2008

    A heavy bottle with a deep punt. 14.5%. Diam. Approx $A110. I remember the last bottle of la collina very clearly. Someone else was paying for the meal and I spent the night sniffing and luxuriating in the wine while my work companions talked shop. The talking came to nought, but the memory of the wine has remained. . . I remember the scent being impossibly beautiful. . . I ...

      Sam Plunkett The Butterfly Effect Shiraz 2012

      Golly's Wine Drops - - 4 readers - This wine looked at first to have a cheery butterfly covered label, then I got to thinking the butterflies all look pinned down, like those creepy butterfly collection boxes wit the dead butterflies in, then when you look closely, the butterfly bodies are photos of humans, with the butterfly wings drawn on. It’s super creepy, like a dark and distressing Doctor Who episode.

      …. Uncomplicated and fading, it seems attenuated and worn out. A clean nose with blackcurrant and later rosewood and menthol. Sweet and short in the mouth. Disappointing. Blind Corner Field Blend 2013. Foot stomped, wild fermented shiraz viognier. 13.5%. Margaret River. Deep and full and like the preceding pair, a little too much weight and not enough…

The larger green leaves have a softness and roundness to the their scent, they seem more complete, though milder and warmer. More nutmeg and cinnamon and less point. The dried leaves are sharper and more focused - with menthol, eucalyptus, cloves…

      …, British Columbia (winery, 375ml, $59.95, WineAlign) A vanimated astral week’s of emotion is met by an animal musk, both hard to define. There is a high quotient of lemon, in curd, zest and pith. The sweetness is tempered by nudging acidity though it lingers long. All Riesling Icewine has to do “is ring a bell and step right up” so despite…

      … Pretty - petal, violet, mulberry, it's verging on black currant; later smoky smouldering black cardamon. Again, like the 2005, I wonder about the purity, on the tongue, it seems slightly animal and aniseed to conclude - rasping and dry, it seems to resolve and not for the first time, I wonder if I'm jumping at shadows.
