|Varietal:||Parellada , Macabeo|
Bright lemon colour with coarse bubbles. Notes of dried apricots and hints of toasted almost and rose petals. Refreshing acidity and a creamy mousse. Bready flavours with overtones of citrus, light spice and orchard fruits. This wine is a 'smooth crimi...
|Winery:||Ata Rangi Ltd|
|Region:||New Zealand » Wairarapa » Martinborough|
Wild yeast and old barrel nose with a bit of almond and rich, toasty aromas layered over smoky, earthy dried orchard fruits. This is rich and powerful in the mouth but remains fresh with a fine acid backbone. The flavors are decidedly old school. The f...
|Winery:||Gary Farrell Winery|
|Region:||USA » California » Mendocino County » Redwood Valley|
Just a classic Sauvignon Blanc. Lovely texture, slippery almost yet light and fresh with acid driven flavors of grapefruit and gooseberry with a touch of orchard fruits on the nose. This has a subtle complexity that will satisfy the most discriminating...
|Region:||USA » California » Sonoma County » Russian River Valley|
Very fresh and complex on the nose with complex notes of dried citrus zest, chalk, smoke, mineral and slightly balsamic tones. In the mouth this medium weight wine shows a certain sense of restraint but offers up layers of dried orchard fruits and exot...
|Region:||Italy » Alto Adige|
This has a lovely nose, floral and full of lemon drop, herbs, and intense green fruit but very fresh, so fresh and green laced! This comes off as fairly sweet on entry, still a dry style decidedly lush in the mouth with a nice core of citrus, honeysuc...
|Winery:||Anthonij Rupert Wines|
|Region:||South Africa » Swartland|
Floral and peachy on the nose, in fact this smells of orchard fruit blossoms, very springy and fresh though air does bring out some licorice spice accents and heirloom apple fruit. Supple on entry, though with bright acids, this is a fruitier style of...
|Region:||Italy » Veneto » Soave Classico|
A touch of dried orange rind greets the nose followed by white flower, nut meats and waxy white fruits all baked up with gentle medicinal herb tones. On the palate this is very precise with a generous yet focused mouthfeel that features mineral and pe...
|Winery:||Page Mill Winery|
|Region:||USA » California » Alameda/Contra Costa Counties » Livermore Valley|
Stony, dusty, and slightly gamy on the nose with pear skin and old wood aromas. Simple and straightforward on entry, showing lovely purity of fruit, in a clean, fresh, and modestly complex style. There is a fine lying autolytic floral and softly Brie l...
|Winery:||Chateau Ste. Michelle|
|Region:||USA » Oregon » Columbia Valley|
Fairly smoky on the nose at first with backing notes of dried orchard fruits, butterscotch, dried grasses, and a touch of smoked ham. Rather elegant on entry with a soft touch of sweet wood adding an initial roundness to the palate feel. The mid-palat...
|Winery:||Lavradores de Feitoria|
Bit of smoke of smoke greets the nose here along with light floral, apple blossom aromas and fresh orchard fruit notes all layered over some subtle oak tones. Again one finds a leading edge of sweetness to the fruit here, though perhaps more apparent g...

In a world where extremes are becoming the paradigms for perfection its a little surprising that one doesn’t hear much of the wines of Saxony. Strike that. One doesn’t hear anything about these wines. And that is not surprising because the production is tiny and the wines almost all consumed locally. But you should be hearing about these wines, ...

I’ve been through this so many times before that it becomes rote. The differences between Pinot Gris and Pinot Grigio. Well, there really aren’t any, when we are referring to the grapes. One is the name in French while the other is the name in Italian. When it comes to the wines though, there remains some distinction, though that is disappearing... Read More
I was recently in Oregon, for the annual International Pinot Noir Celebration, which is a splendid reason to visit Oregon’s wine country, though you don’t need such motivation to be wowed by what you’ll find in McMinnville and the surrounding areas. While tons of Pinot were in fact tasted and consumed during that long weekend, today I want to ta... Read More
There are so many great value wines right under our noses that we often miss them as we’re scouring the shelves for something new. Some inevitably are those ‘old’ wines that we just dismiss out of hand for various reasons. Take white Bordeaux for example, easy to dismiss, but what a mistake that might be. There are many lovely examples out there... Read More
Fruity and fresh on the nose with attractive if simple aromas of chalky and slightly smoky earth over slightly waxy orchard fruits. Bright on entry and driven by good acidity. this is medium bodied for White Bordeaux with slightly pithy citrus and apple flavors layered over a base of chalky earth. Very much in line with the nose with added hint... Read More
I’m often asked what my favorite wines are. Just today I was asked what “Which wine would an expert like you suggest for a hot summer?” No fooling. I replied “I'd drink a white wine, something light and crisp like Assyrtiko from Santorini in Greece, Vinho Verde from Portugal, or Vernacchia or Orvieto from Italy.” All great choices and certainly ...

Time to do a little cellar cleaning and what better way to start than with the odds and ends of Italian wines that have been building up in the basement. Sadly theres no real cohesive theme here, though a few varieties do appear more than once among the tasting notes that follow. There’s not even a pricing paradigm that’s useful here, though mo...

Lots of subtle dried floral character, butchers wax and dried apple aromas greet the nose. This is rather complex if savory on the nose and quite attractive with hints of chalk and apple stem adding detail. Light bodied and fresh with an immediate wave of pear fruit on the attack, this settles into more subtle orchard fruits on the palate with a... Read More
Tight and focused on the nose with some waxy notes and hints of apricot pits followed by effusive white flowers, hints of cotton candy, mint and ginseng. Rich in the mouth but at the same time this is rather clear on the palate, light and fresh, if not particularly bright. The fruit is beautifully detailed with notes of citrus, raw cashew, sugg...

Chardonnay is a pain in my ass. Really it is. I’ve mentioned it before, and it’s worth mentioning again. When I lead staff tastings in retail the Chardonnay days were the only one we all feared. Why you ask? Too many wines smell of old tuna fish cans and taste even worse. OK, that is a slight exaggeration, but the truth is that there is more cra... Read More
