Tasted at Prince Wine Store (South Melbourne (RP AUD$120). Clear, pale lemon colour. A clean nose, med+ intensity aromas of almond, white peach and nectarine. A dry, med+ bodied white wine with a smooth velvety texture, zesty and carrying more weight than a typical chardonnay. A well-balanced wine with appropriate amount of fruity acidity. Fleshy fruit flavours of peach and honeyed spices. Nice finish. Drink now – 2017. 92/100.

The White vine Terras de Lantaño smells fresh and with a little taste of strawberries..... A really "superb· vine, but cheap.

£14.22 2011 http://www.montalbera.it/eng/ruche.php Società Agricola Montalbera S.r.l. - via Montalbera, 1 - 14030 Castagnole Monferrato (At) ITALY - montalbera@montalbera.it £14.22 2011 Quite light. Not very serious since it starts out being very fruity. But then it moves on to give that classic Piedmont depth; this is true especially after its left open for a while/day. Overall its too (in a strange way) fruity for me. Perhaps the 2 rating is a bit harsh but not by much; I think I can find much better.

Ruby red in colour; on the nose, intense bouquet of mature fruits; on the palate well structured, harmonious, soft and very pleasing.

This is quite floral with dark berry fruit humus and plenty of Gevrey style earth that also characterizes the detailed pure and generous medium-bodied flavors that possess a dusty and sappy mouth feel on the serious focused and lingering if slightly warm finish. This too is a good villages but it s not quite at the same level as the Morey or Chambolle. Burghound.

Fresh showing a nice purity to the red and black cherry fruit fragrant spice notes and tangy minerality. Elegant and balanced with a moderate finish. Drink now through 2022. -BS Wine Spectator.

Noticeable but not dominant wood fights a bit with the otherwise fresh and quite earthy red berry fruit nose that complements the rich round supple and highly complex medium-bodied flavors that possess a relatively refined mouth feel and culminate in a mouth coating mocha-infused finish that delivers very impressive length. While there is too much wood for my personal preference it should eventually be largely if not completely eaten. Burghound.

The 2009 La Tour Blanche is very primal on the nose with grapefruit nectarine and apricot aromas. The palate is very well balanced just a little oaky at the moment but with a very fine thread of acidity. Touches of fresh apricot a hint of nougat lime zest and white peach. Well balanced linear at the front palate but voluminous and expanding across the mouth in every direction on the viscous mineral-rich finish. There is so much potential here. Superb. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

The 2009 Chambolle-Musigny is flashy ripe and seductive. As good as this is there is a slight element of heat that detracts from the wine s overall balance. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2016. -Antonio Galloni Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

Sauvignon Blanc trocken 2009 (1l) - Herrenberg - Lergenmüller : Sauvignon Blanc trocken 2009 (1l) - Weißwein von Herrenberg - Lergenmüller Dieser Weißwein zeigt eine ganz typische Sauvignon Nase nach frisch gemähtem Gras, grünen Stachelbeeren und ein wenig Johannisbeeren. Er ist lebendig, frisch mit Saft und Kraft und viel aromatischem Spiel. Am Gaumen erinnert dieser Sauvignon Blanc von Herrenberg - Lergenmüller wieder an frisch gemähtes Gras, Heu, Stachelbeeren, aber auch Aprikosen kommen ins Spiel. Der Gesamteindruck bleibt schlank und ausgewogen und damit ergibt sich ein perfekter und unkomplizierter Terrassenwein.Weingut: Herrenberg - LergenmüllerLand: DeutschlandRegion: PfalzRebsorte: Sauvignon BlancInhalt: 1 lAlkoholgehalt: 12,80 Vol.%Säuregehalt: 6,60 g/lRestsüße: 5,00 g/l Pfalz

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes The unique blends of grapes in this wine results in silkiness and fruit purity. A brilliant, yellow-green wine with a floral, apple complexity on the nose, intensely fruity and elegant, and a harmonious, soft mouthfeel.
