Australia Wine


19 Crimes Cabernet Sauvignon (Episode 216)

In this episode, we taste another of the 19 Crimes Wines from South East Australia, this time their Cabernet Sauvignon.

These wines each depict a criminal deported to Australia for a crime committed in the UK, quite often for something like unauthorised fishing.

On the nose, we smelt Black Cherry, a touch of vanilla and a “Jammy” smell probably promoted by the full-on fruit notes.

On the palate, the wine had a great mouthfeel, with a lot going on the glass giving a complex combination of flavours and then finally leaving an after taste of cherries.

We mentioned in the video that another YouTuber, John from HillBillySelectReviews, had reviewed this wine with two of his pals and interestingly they also detected black cherry and Jamminess on the nose. They also came up with a hint of chocolate and raisin on the palate.

M&S Lock Keepers Shiraz (Episode 206 – Part 2)

In the 2nd part of this episode, we taste a Shiraz from Marks and Spencer – Lock Keepers Reserve 2018 produced in South Eastern Australia.

The price of this wine at the time of writing is £9.00.

The nose was much more subtle than the Shiraz we tasted in part 1 of this episode.

It was much more difficult to detect the aromas of this wine, plum was present and John M also detected some tobacco and some spice.

On the palate, however, this wine had a full-on taste on the palate.

It had an intense fruit taste but was also very soft and smooth to the palate.

Aldi Australian Shiraz – Revisited (Episode 206 – Part 1)

Shiraz is the signature grape for Australia, so we are expecting great things.

This particular Australian Shiraz is from Aldi’s own Exquisite range and costs at the time of writing £5.70p.

John M managed to smell Cherry, eucalyptus, chocolate and coffee on the nose while John M only managed to smell cherry!

John M, however, was not able to get anything but the cherry on the taste and so was left slightly disappointed.

He, was, however, impressed by the balance of tannins in this wine.

John L felt this wine would be a good introduction to Shiraz for those that did not like their reds too powerful.

Barossa Ink Australian Shiraz Review (Episode 198 – Part 3)

In the last part of this episode, we taste an Australian Shiraz, available at the time of writing for £8.00p.

Given that Shiraz is the signature grape of Australia we are expecting this particular wine to be the most powerful of the three tasted in this episode.

The mouthfeel of this wine is so silky and velvety.

John M was slightly disappointed that the tannins were not very strong.

John L however really enjoyed this Shiraz as he doesn’t like tannins as much as John M.

The main flavour is black cherry with a small amount of blackcurrant coming through.

The tannins were much milder than was expected by John M.

19 Crimes Red Wine (Episode 187)

We have the great pleasure and privilege of tasting a bottle of 19 Crimes Red wine from South East Australia, with a very special guest – Anabelle McVine from the YouTube Channel WineScribble.

John L had first tried this in a restaurant in the United States where it cost considerably more than the price he was able to buy it for in the UK from a discount store – BM.

The wine is aged in a rum barrel to help give it it’s unique taste profile.

As experienced red wine drinkers both John M and Annabelle thought the taste profile was not quite complex enough for their personal tastes. They both felt. however, that if you were beginning your red wine journey this would be an excellent bottle to try.

Yellow Tail Merlot Wine Review (Episode 184)

In this video, we taste a Yellow Tail Merlot. This wine is available around the world is grown and produced in Australia. the winery is still run by the same family that started the business back in the 1950’s having emigrated from Sicily.

Priced at around £7.00 in UK supermarkets, it will be acceptable to most peoples pockets.

You must excuse John L’s schoolboy humour in this video but what is wine about if it is not about enjoyment!

This wine is ideal for those looking to add red wines to their list of wines to drink.

Wolf Blass Yellow Label Malbec (Episode 142)

 

This Malbec is produced in Australia, only a very small amount of Malbec is produced in Australia, compared to Argentina where 62% of their wine production is Malbec.
First impressions are very good, in fact tasting better then some of the Argentine Malbecs we have reviewed recently. Tasting like a Malbec should do and for the price of £7.00 excellent value.

Well worth a try at the price (available from Morrisons at £7.00)!

Yellow Tail Jammy Red Roo Wine (Episode 138)

In this episode, we taste a wine we hope will help us identify the “Jammy” taste people talk about when tasting some wine.

The episode follows on from the episode where we try to explain what some people might call “Snobby wine Terms”.

So we selected this particular wine, Yellow Tail Jammy Red Roo because it actually has Jammy on the label.

The blend is made up of around 80% Shiraz, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% of other red varietals.

The wine smells sweet and of strawberries. John M could also detect vanilla on the nose.

The wine has hardly any tannins which give it that jammy taste.

Summarising the wine John M says it has that sticky sweetness, it’s soft, fruity, easy, incorporating a lot of things that many people want from a wine.

John also felt that this wine would be a great introduction to Red Wine for someone who drinks White wine and would like to get into Red.

Ring-bolt Australian Cabernet Sauvignon (Episode 121 Part 3)

In the last part of this episode, we taste another Cabernet Sauvignon from Australia.

This time we taste a 2017 Ring-bolt available for £9.00

On the nose a typical Cabernet Sauvignon, but once again a little short on the length.

Worth, however, in our opinion, the extra £2.50 or £3.00 over the cost of the wines tasted in Part 1 and Part 2.
