  • Millbrook Winery Tocai 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Nicely aromatic with notes of tree bark, herb and a hint of minty spice accenting the pear and white peach fruit. A lot of trapped CO2 here lends this a bit of a spritz on the palate. Nice, fairly rich feel in the mouth, this has classic bitter apple, pear, almond and subtle herb flavors. The acid is bright but well integrated lending this a lar... Read More

  • Movia Gredic Tocai 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Golden yellow, bright, consistent. I have tasted a lot of tocai and no one like this on nose. Sweet notes of pineapple, peach, banana, mineral, then slowly go out butter and notes of peppermint. Yet another confirmation that his wines must be left in the glass quite a bit to enjoy it all. In the mouth, is more tasty than fresh, the sip lose some... Read More
