Wine experts say this Red wine delivers as promised, with bright acidity, slightly funky apple fruits and a clean, fruity finish. Drink now. A solid brut, almost unoaked, with modest but appealing aromas of lime, apple and lemon blossom. The mouthfeel is basic, while flavors of green apple, lime and lemon zest finish leesy and a touch bitter. Earthy and earthy, with aromas of bright berry fruits and farmyard. The palate is juicy and a touch wayward, while flavors of red plum and currant are sour, spicy and a touch green. Very good and lucid, but a bit lean and fast. This is a crisp, but not showy, Châteauneuf-du-Pape. It`s deliciously bright and pure in citrus and melon, with a fine kick of acidity. And the finish adds a hint of raisins to the mix.
Wine experts say this Red wine delivers as advertised despite the stiff tannins and sweet, sugary-sweet flavors. The fruit is clean and forward, suggesting raspberry and cherry, and the finish is thoroughly dry. What a great value at a very good price. A blend of 70% Pinot Grigio and 30% Viognier, this easygoing sparkler delivers tones of white rose, cherry blossom and citrus peel. The mouthfeel is crisp and simple. A blend of Arinto and Antão Vaz, this is an easygoing wine, hinting at almonds and melon as well as red fruits. The refreshing fruitiness is softened by the addition of vanilla. Produced from biodynamically grown grapes, this is a rounded, soft wine. It has a strongly mineral texture, along with delicious ripe red fruits, and the acidity at the end is ready to drink. The Adelaide Hills are gradually filling out, as the vintage indicates.
Wine experts say this Red wine delivers as promised, with voluptuously ripe black cherry, blackberry jam, mocha, red licorice and smoky sandalwood flavors that finish long, elegant and balanced. Drink after 2016. This is an interesting wine by virtue of its oddball variety and the sort of wonderful packaging and friendly personality that tastes like a field blend made of different spices. It`s not terribly concentrated, but all along the way the wine seems to dance toward creamy, toward banana-like, toward smooth sugar. The finish is utterly delightful. The pepper on this wine is a nice accent for a grippy, fuller-bodied Chenin. Muscular enough on the palate at first, it will improve with a bit more aeration. Hold until after 2015. The wine is ripe and structured, with a warm, opulent character and rich fruits.
Wine experts say this Red wine delivers as promised, with a creamy mousse and strong acidity. But the French oak seems a bit out-dated. At one moment there is weight but at another there is an unabsorbed sweetness that almost tastes chunky. For now there is great liveliness and sumptuous fruit. Named after the 13th-century house at the center of the estate, this wine is big, but its big-arm flavor is well balanced. Its richness is balanced by the ripe berry fruits and final citrus acidity. This is one of the rare white wines that can be drunk young. Aromas of cherry, vanilla and a green note of powdered sage carry over to the rounded palate. It has a nice balance of fruit and savory flavors. It`s a first wave, so don`t expect too much complexity.
Wine experts say this Red wine delivers as advertised for this simple, fruit-forward and affordable bottling. It offers peaches and tangerine in the aroma and flavor, and more in the way it tastes accented by hints of honeysuckle, cinnamon and orange peel. This bargain-priced wine is dry, full-bodied and almost Leaner in texture than its companion from $70. The grapes are from the newish Montepulciano vineyard, and they`re blended in with small percentages of Merlot and Cabernet Franc. The result is sound, if somewhat lean, with light cherry and cassis fruit mingling together. It finishes crisp and dry. A distinctive mineral, lime edge of acidity marks this dry, tartly acidic wine. It has a chalky, mineral character, with an intensely mineral edge. A green wine yeast, this is crisp and light. It has apple and white peach flavors that are given an extra edge of acidity by the dosage.
