Teroldego is a distant cousin to Syrah. The wine is deep ruby in colour with a floral, spicy nose of raspberries and blueberries. It's medium bodied and remarkably elegant for the price with a firm, dry, fruity flavour.
Crisp and creamy with apple and citrus flavours, bright acidity and lively bubbles. A great value and delicious on its own, but also a versatile food wine with everything from fried chicken to oysters to sushi.
A new collaboration between Meyer family members yields excellent value wines sourced from prime sites. Lifted aromas of orchard fruit and citrus followed by a crisp palate of pear and green apple, with a little extra body from judicious neutral oak.
Forget Pinot Grigio; this is what Pinot Gris should taste like. Straw-coloured with a minerally nectarine and honey nose; rich honey and peach flavour, full on the palate and beautifully balanced.
A decent starter cider at a good price from Andrew Peller made from Nova Scotia apples with a nose of fresh apples and lightly spritzed. It fills the mouth with McIntosh apple flavours in an almost-still style after the bubbles quickly disappear on the palate. There is sweetness here along with apple goodness but could use a little more zippy acidity.
Made from Zibibbo, which is the local name for Moscato d’Alessandria, and grown on the island of Pantelleria. The wine is unmistakably Moscato on the nose, with perfumy peach and apricot. The palate is light, delicate and refreshing with citrus and lovely minerality on the finish. A great wine with salads and Asian-inspired cuisine.
