I bought this bottle of wine from a shop, also called 'Le Grand Bouqueteau ' next to the car park by the entrance to Chinon castle when I visited at the end of May 2014. Chinon is an AOC created in 1937,although wine production in the area goes back ce...

Oddly herbal in a composty and medicinal king of way, I find this to be unusual but attractive in its complexity and like the other South African Syrah in this tasting this is showing a distinctive character that is very possibly distinctive South Afri...

King of the zinfandels, all hail. Surprised the reviews are low, but to each their own, here are some points I'd like to highlight. A full-sensory experience, this zin has fragrance, colour and taste in its pocket. Not only does the wet wine wash we...

Sweet, wet to start, then semi-dry to finish. Depending on when you pick blackberries, they can range from a little tart like a raspberry to nature's candy. This is right on the edge between the two with the lucious exterior berry taste to the slight...

With harvest truly getting underway in northern California, up to now it's mostly been early whites and grapes for roses and sparkling wines, masses of enotourists are descending on the northern counties to enjoy them in their glory.

On my recent visit to Piedmont I included five producers in the neighboring village of Barbaresco since I've often given them short shrift. Known as the Queen of Nebbiolo, in contrast to Barolo the King, Barbaresco has a reputation for being a softer, more elegantly styled example of Nebbiolo. While this is undoubtedly true, the accompanying sen... Read More

27th July 2013, Ormond Hall, St Kilda RdIt is well-evident that there is no shortage of Rhone-inspired wines in Australia. We certainly have vineyards which bask in similar weather conditions as the Rhone Valley. One could argue that a key missing element would be the round river rocks atop the clay soils which retain heat to intensify the summ... Read More
I am pretty much prejudiced towards red wines. However, that does not mean that I drink them exclusively. I do drink quite a bit of white wine. Probably, because, like most Americans my age, we are encouraged to bias out protein input away from red meats. The good news for me is that I do love seafood and chicken. So, that is really not a s... Read More
This was a hidden treasure! It was served very cold on a very hot night in Phoenix. We had it with King Salmon. It complemented the meal perfectly. Even non-wine drinker husband raised thumbs up on this one! Read More
