This wine is so good that drinking it feels like you’re licking it off the inside of an oak barrel. I’m no expert so this may or may not be a good thing, but it works for me (despite faint aromas of marzipan, and I hate marzipan). It gets better with every mouthful. If someone […]
The flip side of the “I’m an idiot for having the subtle and delicate Fairview Barbera with manly braai vleis after a few beers” debacle was that this big bodied bad boy of a wine had its moment in the sun (or braai smoke). Stand it up to strong meats and watch it fly. Fantastic.
Drank this amongst several other fine bottles of wine so was probably both spoiled and inebriated (no ‘probably’ about the latter). Wasn’t disappointed, wasnt blown away.
Eucalyptus and vicks in a good way (is there a bad one?). Goes down easier than Sergio Busquets in a classico. I think I used that joke before, but I dont want to use jokes about whore’s knickers.
Posh apple tango. Impressed my guests who are used to shitty californian sweet white zinfandels, but there are much better SA whites.
Smooth as butter and enough eucalyptus tastes and smells to make a Koala bear go crazy.
I’m sure this tasted way better in the tasting room, but didn’t live up to my high expectations, so I was left with that same feeling of unfulfillment, emptyness and disappointment my ex-girlfriends complained of. Still enjoyable, just never going to get taken home to Mother.
Smooth and velvety. Perfect accompaniment for the fillet steak I had it with, but lacking a bit of magic (possibly due to my tastebuds being drowned already) 35% Cab, 30% Shiraz, 20% Merlot and 15% Malbec.
Passion fruit and lime. Great on its own. Not too acidic. Got it free with a wine order.
