A peppery, black-cherry/blackberry nose that showcases bold red fruits over top of the light oak vanilla and spices. It shows plush tannins, good varietal fruits, tar, leather, currants and spice. A nice, solid red.
Spring meadow, gooseberry, green fig, white pepper and green apple open this stony, herb-brushed Grüner from Niederösterreich. The dry, oily, citrus-slicked and medium-bodied palate carries dried and fresh herbs, chamomile, fine meadow flowers, tangerine, white grapefruit, stony spice and green fig to a zesty, pithy finish. This would easily stand up to tarragon butter halibut, moules frites or pissaldière.
Light ruby-red. Earthy nose with spices, red berries (raspberry) and fruit stones. Spicy taste, medium-bodied with a dense fruity core and somewhat dry tannins in the clean finish. Drink within 2 years on red meat casserole or stew.
Dark yellow. Hops, floral and citrus notes on the nose but an aroma of bread reveals the use of Champagne yeasts in the making. Smooth and rather light on the palate, the intense flavour is sharpened by the tangy acidity and rounded by the 7% alcohol. There is a nice touch of honey in the finish.
This Cab has a beautiful nose of currants, blackberry, cedar and spice. It’s juicy on the palate with savoury and vibrant red and dark fruits that persist through the finish. Very tasty and a steal at this price.
Aromas of toasty oak and vanilla with citrus hints before a mouth-filling palate of orchard and stone fruits, with some creamy notes before a juicy, lingering finish.
Pronounced maple sugar aroma, with similarly striking maple flavour and fruity malt on the palate. Good weight and lingering maple flavour with fruity malt and a nice touch of bitterness on the finish. Warming and easy to like.
