    We've opened a whole lot of bottles of Baffle Creek cab sav and granache, made of local grapes in our very own garage by my husband who only gulps it down for research purposes. It's fabulous, of course. We call it "Garage", as opposed to "Grange", which is made up the road a bit and rather overrated.

    Apart from that, we haven't opened any bottles.... just sucked the new sangiovese straight from the barrel with a bit of plastic tubing.....

    This week's purchases:
    Annie's Lane Shiraz 2002 $15 special
    SA Shiraz 2001 $15 special (given away by SWMBO to the midman that delivered our youngest)

    Both on aged cellar release from Murphys.

    This week's cheapy - Bailey & Baileys Cab Sab $11 - very fruity, but smooth, nice taste - might get some more.

    I have the SA Shiraz in the 2005 so would have been interesting to compare. Part of the interest is that most wine is ready to drink within 3 years or so, not all cellar well.

    Cliff, I had no complaints after the third glass, and neither did the guests.

    (Un)fortunately SWMBO could not give her opinion, as they say you shouldn't drink with one in the oven. No complaints from me about this, I get to drink twice as much, and I got a chauffeur.

    Doesn't get much better.

    Opened a bottle of 1957 vintage Pedro Ximinez Sherry the other week. Not too shabby. A friend gave it to me years ago so I decided to let it wait until we were both 50. Not bad at all - although I don't think it's supposed to be a flash drop of grog. Just shows what age can do for you

    Default Mt Benson

    Opened a bottle of "First Encounter" Mt Benson, Limestone Coast today. Cab Shiraz 2004, fantastic. I'm not a wine coniwhatever but Limestone Coast region wines are great. This is the 4th different wine i've had from there and i'd recommend them to anyone. SA reds are noticably ahead of any others.

    Default Kanawinka Wines

    Kanawinka Milla Milla Vineyard Cab Sav 2004.

    Bought a box off a mate who bought a pallet; I now know why. Quite a nice drop and, at 14%, needs to be nurtured.

    In other words - keep it to yourself

    Knocked over a very nice Hoffmans 2002 McLaren Vale Cabernet Sauvignon last night. Have to keep an eye out for more.
