Seppelt 2006 Sparkling Shiraz

The pop and the fizz
illustrate detonating
deeply tanned berries


A hops explosion
clears my palette like a bomb
Then leaves without taste

Celebration Ale

They were not kidding
when they wrote of finest hops
aroma and malt

d'Arenberg Footbolt shiraz 2002

Come in my old friend
drop that tobacco depth charge
and light firecrackers

Blackcurrant gives way

Blackcurrant gives way
to plummier tasting notes
when properly stored


Fuel fumes, job well done
Green smell with stained white footwear
Vibrating hands
