Deep reddish brown in colour with a distinctive combination of fruity malt and piquant hoppy aromas. Rounded dried fruit flavours merge with toasty malt, cutting the initial sweetness, finishing with a moderate hit of nutty dryness. Easy to drink and a good winter warmer.
Forward notes of black fruit and a hint of bell pepper followed by a well-textured palate of ripe blackberry and cassis, wrapped in approachable tannins.
15% of the grapes for this wine were dried à la Amarone. Full-bodied, this 14.5% beauty doles out raspberry, cassis, dark cherry, violets, spice, cocoa and earth. The mid-palate shows a sweet/jammy texture before the ripe tannins sweep everything up. It should age well over the next decade. Braised lamb shanks or beef ribs were made for this wine.
Simply one of the best dessert wines I’ve tasted in years. A blend of the local appassimento Nasco grape and Malvasia, aged in barrique 18 months. Old gold colour with lifted nose of honeysuckle, honey, orange and cardamom; rich and full on the palate, beautifully balanced and seamless. Just a delight to drink.
Attractive varietal Cabernet nose reveals blackcurrant, blackberry, vanilla, clove and a whiff of green herb. Fresh blackberry and blackcurrant, wrapped in silky tannins in the mouth, with medium weight and good overall balance, culminating in dark fruit and a light splash of dark chocolate on the long finish.
Dense ruby in colour, this wine has an intense nose of plums, cooked cherries and raisins. It’s full-bodied and rich, in fact, a fruitcake of a wine but nicely balanced with a firm finish.
Pondview’s first Pinot Noir succeeds in capturing plum, sweet cherry, earth, vanilla and cocoa aromas and flavours. With a natural alcohol of 14.5%, there is very good length, lifted acid and supple tannins. Accessible right now. Pair with mushroom risotto topped with duck breast.
