2008 Peregrine Ridge American Oak Blend Shiraz (Heathcote, VIC)

I came across Peregrine Ridge wines a few years ago at a wine tasting and when I first tried them my jaw dropped to the ground.

I could not believe how good these wines were and I congratulated the winemaker Graeme Quigley for his brilliant wines.

His wines takes quality up to another level and is definitely one of my favourite Heathcote wines.

I have had to patiently wait about 2 years before Graeme decided to let me sell his wines.

2008 Peregrine Ridge American Oak Blend Shiraz will leave you with a huge smile, savouring every sip and drooling for more. It is a rich and full bodied wine with the nose and palate of spice, plum, cedar and vanilla. So smooth and well rounded it just melts in your mouth.

If you want to treat yourself and your friends/family to something really special then this is it.

2010 Noon Eclipse Grenache Shiraz (McLaren Vale, SA)

Those of you who are familiar with Noon wines very well know that they are magnificent wines that have depth, structure, refined and complex.

This vintage has a lovely berry flavour with a savoury finish with great balance. Noon wines have always been outstanding and this wine is no exception.

2001 Penfolds Magill Estate Shiraz

This was a very enjoyable wine and was drinking exceptionally well.

A very elegant wine with velvety tannins and medium bodied. It had the nose and palate of cherries, plum, chocolate and spice. A long finish to which was most enjoyable.

I think that Penfold’s Magill Estate is great value for money and one of my favourites within the Penfold’s range.

2009 Sanguine Estate Heathcote Shiraz

After being very impressed with the 2009 Sanguine Estate Progeny Shiraz (their entry level wine) I decided to step up a notch and try 2009 Sanguine Estate Heathcote Shiraz.

It was a full bodied wine with a rich mouthfeel of plums, blackberries and spice. Smooth tannins and a nice long spicy and flavoursome finish.

Well done once again Sanguine Estate, I could happily drink this wine any day.

2006 Threesome Heathcote Shiraz from Wild Duck Creek Estate

2006 Threesome Shiraz Heathcote Shiraz is one of those wines that you need to be very close friends or family of the winemaker to receive it.
When a friend of mine showed me the bottle I thought it was a bottle of Japanese sake when I saw the label. 2006 Threesome shiraz from Heathcote.
Well let me tell you, I don’t know who he knows to get such a wine and how he got it but what I can tell you is that I will never forget it.

2006 Threesonme Heathcote Shiraz Tasting Notes

This wine was purely amazing. Everything about this wine was nearly perfect.
The nose & palate was rich with vanilla, violets, berry, spice and so much more.
A wine with great depth, well structured a spicy finish that lasted forever. My mouth couldn’t stop salivating.

I have never been able to source this wine myself.

2008 St Michael’s Limited Release Shiraz

2008 St Michael’s Limited Release Shiraz (Heathcote, Vic.) is an outstanding wine.

I really wish I had more put away.

This is a dense, rich, full bodied wine that has the nose & palate of liquorice, blackberry, dark chocolate and vanilla. Smooth tannins with a long spicy finish.

Mick Cann is an excellent winemaker and this is an example of his fine work.

This vintage is sold out but if you are lucky to come across it I would be purchasing this straight away.
