Western Australia

Western Australia (abbreviated as WA) is a state occupying the entire western third of Australia. It is bounded by the Indian Ocean to the north and west, the Great Australian Bight and Southern Ocean to the south, the Northern Territory to the north-east and South Australia to the south-east. Western Australia is Australia's largest state with a total land area of 2,529,875 square kilometres (976,790 sq mi), and the second-largest country subdivision in the world – however, a significant part of it is sparsely populated. The state has approximately 2.5 million inhabitants (around 11% of the national total), and 92% of the state's population lives in the south-west corner of the state.

    • Cape Mentelle Cabernet sauvignon 2001

      My Liebherr wine fridge has not been kind to these old Cape Mentelle paper labels. They're all stained and now detached from their original bottles, leaving me with a further three unloved 2001 Margaret River Cabernet clean skins ...

  • Flowstone Queen of the Earth Chardonnay 2011

    … 13%, augmented, plump and creamy. $A55 with grilled peach, match stick and butterscotch. There's a clear lactone edge to the nose, but even so I was a little surprised that this was so round and full and puffed up in the mouth; any spine is hard to discern. It strikes me as being unnecessarily inflated and and oak flavoured. 2009 http…

  • Vinous time travel

    …, but prior to this the bottles had been exposed to the unkind Brisbane heat, so quite possibly there are better examples of the following to be found. Many of the wines were surprisingly sweet, and the Moss Woods were guilty of under performing. In approximate order of encounter. 1984 Penfolds Grange. (13.6%. Shiraz) Brown and volatile, but clearly…

  • Voyager Cabernet Merlot 2001

    … Not far from the Margaret river town site and south and along Caves Road, there's an extra ordinary cluster of Karri trees reaching for the sky. Tall, pale and straight, it's breathtakingly beautiful. There's a peaceful serenity and cathedral like silence, the cars infrequent as they are are muffled and insignificant. The wine too comes from…

  • In passing

    … 2010 Mountadam Estate Chardonnay. Slightly sweet in the mouth, though of course this is illusory. I had blinkers on (preconceptions and blind tasting while eating Italian food) and called it an Arneis, there is some pleasing almond meal and marzipan but of course not enough bitterness. It's yet another very good effort from Mountadam (08, 09…

  • Dormilona Cabernet sauvignon 2013

    … Margaret River. Cabernet sauvignon. 13%. Approx $A50. A new label and a curious name. I thought for a moment the wine might also be skeletal and bare, but it's the opposite, large and seemingly bigger than the stated 13%, it's a bit of a tadpole, frontal and slightly sweet, with a rapid taper. It smells of Margaret river - earth, wax, eucalyptus…

Bright with just enough creaminess and buttermilk to soften the structure without compromising the elliptical shape and pace. http://feeds.feedburner.com/WinoSapien Click here for the original context …

  • Clos Marché Malabre 2010

    … A new and very pretty label from a Cowaramup based duo, though curiously the bottle contains riesling from 2010 (single vineyard, Porongorup, 140 cases). It's a bold move, when everyone else is trying to sell something from 13 or 14, especially for unheralded label. . . The notable thing is that this is starting to turn and mature, perhaps…
