Medium straw in colour with that characteristic lychee and rose petal nose; off-dry, exotic flavours of honey and Turkish Delight; full on the palate and very assertive.
This is magnificent, a beautiful Chardonnay with a nose of creamy pear, baked apple, spice and a fine vein of minerality. Such purity of fruit on the palate, a mélange of stone fruit and lemon with a creamy texture and spicy bite that amplifies the minerals extracted from deep in the vineyards. Freshening acidity props up this gorgeous wine through a long, elegantly appointed finish.
White flowers, white peach, fresh rousing minerality and lovely hints of lime and citrus are the opening notes. This is a lovely organically farmed Chablis at an attractive price with a racy-steely backbone, grapefruit-peach fruits and stony minerality that builds through the finish. Pair with seafood and salads.
To use the vernacular, this wine is a real “beaut” and won't cost you “big bikkies.” For $19.95 you get a dense purple wine with a floral, blackberry nose and notes of leather; on the palate it's dry and savoury with blackberry and black-olive flavours, ending with ripe, soft tannins.
Ruby purple. Minerally, deep fruity nose, earthy, liquorice. Rich fruity taste, chewy, soft tannins. Full bodied, it remains balanced through the nice long finish. Drinks well now and over the next couple of years.
This bubbly has a creamy, minerally, apple and pear nose; it’s medium-bodied, on the dry side, but not too dry, with good persistence on the palate. A very useful wine for minor celebrations or to make dinner an occasion.
Something to put on your birthday wish list or just to spoil yourself. A blend of 94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Petit Verdot, 2% Cabernet Franc. Dense purple in colour with a spicy, blackcurrant and vanilla oak nose. Beautifully balanced and richly satisfying on the palate. Drinking well now but will cellar well.
