Christmas Party

Christmas party so far…great to see a bright ’92 Hill of Grace in the glass.

Balnaves the Tally 2007, Bandol 2008, Hill of Grace 1992, Pizzini Nebbiolo 2003

This was subsequently followed by more delicious offerings (although nothing will beat the highlight of the 1992 Henschke HOG):

2004 Peter Lehmann Stonewell Shiraz

1988 Henschke Hill of Grace (still OK, delicious, but not as good as the 1992. Stiff competition!)

2004 Grant Burge Shadrach Cabernet Sauvignon which was a real surprise for me and fricken unbelievable. Super dark intense fruit, focused drive and persistence, no rough use of oak. Sublime.

2008 Curly Flat Chardonnay, perfectly Macedon, reminds me of the Shadowfax version.

A Greenock Creek Seven Acres Shiraz that was faulty and had to be poured down the gurgler.

2003 Arras Grand Vintage Sparkling. Creamy, biscuity and delightful to start the evening with.
