Why do we love this wine?

I had a lovely family dinner recently. Mum, dad, and my sister Nicci, for her birthday (30 again, obviously - need you ask?). I’d kinda coerced dad into bringing a bottle of Cullen Diana Madeline 2005, since he was rude enough to drink his only other bottle without me. We decanted and poured (after a stunning Alsatian riesling to start with) and it was at the perfect drinking moment.

“This is just singing!” I exclaimed. 

Confused looks ensued. 

“Singing, eh?” Dad looked skeptical.

“Really?” said mum, unsure if she might be enlightened by holding her ear to the glass.

But Nicci had already whipped out her phone and had Instagram stories at the ready. “What’s it singing?” she asked as everyone gave their interpretation of Cullen doing karaoke.

Mmm, yep. I thought this wasn’t a foreign concept. It’s like “in the drinking pocket”. “Singing” denotes a wine at the peak of its life, with the perceived perfect amount of age, before any of the vibrancy of fruit starts drying out.

Enter The Relic. Bold, rich and fine baritone fruits and tenor tannins, with a punchy brass section, silky backup vocals and a rollicking jazz piano vibe. Over a decade of age, great Barossa vintage, brilliant producer and a wonderful privilege. 

The Relic can join me for karaoke any time, and I’ll be sure to put it on Instagram stories. I think we’ll be singing Old King Wenceslas, like the driver from Love Actually.
