Chateau Bernadotte 2006 vs Thomas Hardys Cabernet Sauvignon 2004 – what i’m drinking at the time 05.02.14

Its Cab night tonight, old world vs new world, french vs aussie. Looking into my cellar it looks like I need to drink more, oh woe is me, so I decided to do a comparison for some fun and games. Today we have a French Bordeaux from the Medoc, recommended to me a few years ago pitted against the well regarded Thomas Hardy’s Cab Sauv from the Margret River.

Both wines come with a bit of age and don’t come cheep coming in around the $50 mark at time of purchase with the Hardy’s currently coming in at just under $100. Expectations expectations…

2007 Jacob’s Creek St Hugo – What I’m Drinking At The Time 24.10.13

Hello hello the slacker is bbbback! Yes it has been a full 2 months since I have posted anything which I do apologize for BUT I have some backlogged tasting sessions hopefully coming up for you depending on time wise so stay tuned.

It’s breakfast time and as I’m reaching into the fridge for some eggs I notice the half finished bottle from yesterday’s dinner just chillin there so…as you do….wine and scrambled eggs, the choice of champions. Today it’s le Jacob’s Creek’s St Hugo 2007 Cabernet Sauvgnon, a wine which has some fairly good reputation and named after Hugo Gramp, grandson of Johann Gramp, who is the founder of Jacob’s Creek.

Mount Mary 2010 Vintage

Heya peeps, been crazy busy lately and with the combination of being lazy, my poor blog has been unattended to, so without further ado, I bring to you the weekend that was Mount Mary. About a month ago now, I was piling on my frequent driver miles visiting this little gem of a winery in the Yarra Valley. If you have read my previous posts, you will know that I am no stranger to this winery and sing its praises.

Cape Mentelle Cabernet Sauvignon 2007 – what i’m drinking at the time 28.06.12

Hey guys, hello again! We got some more Margaret River today this one from Cape Mentelle.

Cape Mentelle Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

This wine is the flagship of the Cape Mentelle range sourced from the Wallcliffe Vineyard planted by founder David Hohnen in 1970 and sits pretty in the Excellent category in the Langtons Classification. I arrived at dinner to see this wine already in a decanter. It had already been sleeping soundly for two hours so I grabbed a few glasses and dished this guy around the table. I didn’t see the bottle so essentially I tried this wine blind.
