What We Drank Last NightWhat We Drank Last Night
A Most Interesting Evening
Sunday, 12th September, 2004  - David Farmer

Sunday night was not without its highlights. Over the last few months the Peter Lehmann Reserve Eden Valley Rieslings have grabbed our attention. It started with the fabled 1993 a few months ago. Simply brilliant, youthful fruit, some age to give complexity with the final assessment leaving us in awe of the thrill of wine. Then we enjoyed the 1999 and last night the current release the 2000. Of these the 1999 is far superior and we suggest the 2000 is a bit coarse and not worth the Reserve tag.

Time for reds. From Gigondas in the Rhone Valley came Domaine Raspail-Ay 1999 (Dominique Ay) with much of interest hidden away but alas this bottle was riddled with that widespread bacterial wine fault Bretannomyces and was dispatched to the sink. The Veritas 'Heinrich' Barossa Valley Shiraz Mataro Grenache 2002 was brilliant with soft creamy fruit and great length. Then came a great surprise. Tasted "masked", we were asked to guess the origin of Garretson Syrah Roset Vineyard Paso Robles 2001. My experience in these matters is to always thank the host and say it is one of his if the wine is exceptional. We agreed on the variety although it had an elusive fragrance, almost a perfume quality which had us way down South on the Fleurieu Peninsula, S.A. We got right as well the hot days cool night option but were left scrambling for the final origin.

We moved to a Chateau Reynella McLaren Vale Cabernet Sauvignon 1996 which was lovely but left us thinking, when will you make my jaw drop. This just proved again that really great wine is very rare.
