Still shy, this Chardonnay needs another year in the bottle to show its best. Currently, there is peach, pineapple, vanilla, spice and green apple. The palate is a mixture of cream, spice, and green apple, all supported by medium acidity and a lengthy finish.
Deep ruby in colour with a slightly orange rim, a nose of red berries, clove and forest floor; full-bodied with a cedary note and dusty tannins. It reminds me of a Barbaresco.
Zorzal’s top-tier wine offers up Malbec in its purest and most thrilling expression. An enthralling nose of cherry, summer raspberry, boysenberry, toasted oak and concentrated currants. This is a beautifully poised and balanced wine in the mouth with layered spices of clove and nutmeg, fine oak vanilla and cocoa, and a plethora of ripe currants, red fruits and firm tannins. A true beauty that will improve for 5 or more years in the cellar. Pair with grilled beef or lamb.
Incredible value! I remember trying this Port at the winery back in 2012, just before being released and was blown away by the quality. Big, rich and full-bodied, the ’09 Fonseca possesses a saturated colour and a bouquet of crème de cassis, plums, raisins, spice, violets, dark cherries and earth. There is a concentrated palate, intense tannic structure and a long finish, which equates to 30+ years of longevity.
A light sweetness and floral nose with fruity hoppy notes, flavours of grapefruit with hints of pepper and lemon and a pleasant, mild, hoppy bitterness on the finish. Nice character and quite drinkable.
A quintessential New Zealand Sauvignon at a very reasonable price. Pale straw in colour with a nose of passion fruit, grapefruit and guava. Medium-bodied, fruity but crisply dry with great length.
From a warm year comes this blend of 85% Chardonnay and 15% Grechetto. A medium yellow colour leads the way into a combination of toast, pineapple, red apples, canned corn and liquorice. There is excellent length, a creamy texture and it is ready to drink.
