Very pale straw in colour; lightly minerally, lychee, cardamom nose with touch of ginger; light to medium-bodied, dry, grapefruit, lychee, tangerine and rose water flavours; fine mouthfeel with a long, lingering finish. Drink now.
Pale yellow. Torrontés is a very aromatic grape reminding of Muscat with intense aromas of exotic fruits (lychee, apricot) and floral scents accompanied by herbaceous notes and a hint of dry stones. Light, crisp and dry, the floral and fruity notes can be a bit overpowering to some palates. Drink now.
I’m a great fan of Pinot Noir from Australia’s Yarra Valley in the state of Victoria. Deep purple in colour, it has an intriguing bouquet of cherries, tomato leaf and rust. Medium-bodied and dry, expect a rich flavour of sun-warmed cherries with well-integrated oak carried on lively acidity
Clear pale copper. Faint nose of strawberries. Light-bodied; tastes of rhubarb and strawberry pie, with a surprisingly long finish. Patio wine for a hot summer day. Drink up.
Here is a real flatterer! Lawrence Buhler has produced a solid Cabernet Franc from the difficult red vintage of 2008. Wonderfully elegant, the perfume is a mélange of raspberries, cassis, cocoa, coffee and sweet tobacco, and is built on a medium-bodied frame. In the mouth, there is a sweet core of fruit, soft tannins, and it provides a long finish. It is ready to drink with your favourite cut of steak or lamb chops, marinated in garlic and Greek oregano.
This is an everyday cider that highlights freshness and vibrancy with a subtle effervescence on the palate. The pure demi-sweet-and-tart apple flavours explode on the palate leaving a clean and finessed feel on the finish.
