Pale straw in colour with a fresh apple and apple-blossom nose, it’s medium-bodied and dry with an apple flavour carried on fresh grapefruit acidity.
This inaugural release delivers aromas of orchard fruit, citrus and tropical notes leading to a juicy, fruit forward entry, quite full-bodied, off-dry lemon lime palate with a hint of honey with a lengthy citrus edged finish.
A classic Bordeaux blend of 40% Sémillon, 40% Sauvignon and 20% Muscadelle, this is a lively, aromatic wine showing floral and slightly wild green herbal character with typical grassy green fruit freshness. It is not as exuberant on the palate but nicely balanced with a smooth agreeable finish. Pair with shellfish, especially oysters on the half shell.
Cascade and Perle hops add to the appealing floral and yellow-fruit aromas. Beautifully balanced, harmonious malty, citrus and vaguely tropical fruit flavours culminate in a long, nutty, dry-bitter finish. A classic!
Flatrock has perfected this aromatic blend of Riesling, Gewürztraminer and Chardonnay. There is plenty going on here with lime, lemon, orchard fruits and a pinch of spice on the nose. It’s slightly off-dry and the grapefruit and ginger spice shine on the palate with pear and apple notes chiming in. Lovely sipping wine.
Dark ruby. Unpleasant notes of reduction (cooked vegetables and rot) will hit you first if you don’t carafe it an hour or so. Give it time to let the dark fruit, herbs and spices (aniseed) come out of the glass. Medium- to full-bodied, balanced middle palate and finish. Soft, chewy tannins. Drink or wait 2-3 years.
Very expressive nose of intense floral notes over light red fuits. Velvety mouthfeel, like a caress on the tongue that becomes firmer near the finish. The powerful alcohol (at 15%) is felt but there is no burning sensation. A fine expression of the Primitivo grape.
