...seven assorted premium aussie wines  

Balgownie Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 1999, Geelong
Red/black colour, slightly faded in intensity. Restrained nose shows berry fruit with a slightly minerally edge. Savoury, rich concentrated palate is not overblown or too fruity. Chalky, rich tannins. A classy wine. Very good/excellent

Balgownie Estate Shirax 1999, Geelong
Muted red/black colour. Rich, herby nose with some lush berry fruit and a chocolatey edge. Concentrated, savoury chunky palate shows great balance: it is lush but savoury and still showing some restraint. Very good/excellent

Trevor Jones Virgin Chardonnay 2001, Barossa
Unoaked, this has a richly tropical fruited nose. The palate is very ripe and lush with sweet fruit and a rich texture. Attractive in a forward, concentrated style. Very good+

Lake Breeze Bernoota 1999, Langhorne Creek
60% Shiraz, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon. Deep coloured. Very rich, exotic nose is liquoricey and intense. The palate is bold and lush with rich chocolatey fruit. Very good/excellent, if you like this somewhat extreme style

Lake Breeze Cabernet Sauvignon 1999, Langhorne Creek
The nose is rich, liquoricey and a bit alcoholic. Rich palate with a savoury edge to the fruit. Boldly styled but a little awkward and not very together at the moment. Very good

Kilkanoon Prodigal Grenache 1999, Clare Valley
Lots of alcohol on the nose. Savoury style. Concentrated, extracted palate but too hot with alcohol and unbalanced. Good/very good

Kilkanoon Oracle Shiraz 1999, Clare Valley
Opaque purple black colour. Rich nose is quite alcoholic but also shows lush, savoury, liquoricey fruit. Extracted palate is chunky but a tiny bit unbalanced. Very good
