When I was at Langtons last year a Barossa Winemaker said exactly the same thing. Apparently many winemakers 'overdid' the '10 (I think he was referring to fruit and oak) and that may people ignored the very good '09s in anticipation of the '10.Twas a funny thing in the mid 2010's where plenty of accolades were thrown at the 2010 south Australian vintage. I found many 2009 variants to be superior to their one year old counterparts.
Thanks for your comments on the 2009 Meschach. I had one a couple of years ago and thought it had turned. I had another one and it was brilliant. I will now sentence my remaining two to '3 to 5 with good behaviour'!The 2009 Meschach...I have to agree with you wholeheartedly, this for me was better that great, it was stunning. I had this as my best of the wines of 2016, a top six list I have made for decades. Such a balanced wine which sits around for 5 years before being sold and 2 of those years in oak. Burge makes three biggies and i have only ever had this one. I have another somewhere and i really hope that it tasted s good as it did previously. We all know sometimes that just doesnt happen but I will be anxiously waiting probably in another three to five years.
Just to add to Steadys enjoyment of a Voyager. I picked up only a couple of weeks ago three six packs of white from graysonline. One was very average, one was good and the Voyager Estate 2015 Savvy Semy blend was ridiculouly good. Just so damn smooth, so moorish with nice complexity. To add to that, I paid about eight bucks delivered. Better than a 'fo deal.
I would have them both on the same night in that next 3-4 years what screwcaps definately slowing the aging down.Thanks for your comments on the 2009 Meschach.

I also have one 2010 Meschach. Should I subject myself to the same level of patience?
