Fresh lime pith and typical Riesling notes on nose. Spritzy, refreshing, off-dry and good length for the price. A Summer canal-boat wine. — 2 days ago
Dried cranberry aroma with notes of cocoa. Not mouth-filling but fresh (makes it very much a food wine), works with Manchego - not complex. — 15 days ago
Beautiful salmon colour. Was expecting this to be a bold Alsace/Kiwi Pinot Gris style, but in fact further along the line to a lighter Italian wine. Aroma - pear, fennel and lemon. Light on the palate but balanced and quaffable, I seem to say this about a few wines but lacking a bit of freshness. — a month ago
Really like this: sour cherry aromas, followed through in the mouth with added cola cube notes. Lovely acidity and a good amount of tannin given the grapes (Gamay and Pinot). Can well imagine tucking into this is at a Parisian bistro. — 6 days ago
Seemed to take a while to open up. Ginger, pear, dairy aromas. On the palate plenty of acidity - lime and slightly nutty note. Good length but somehow lacking the focus of a great Burgundy. — a month ago
Tempting strawberry and vanilla aroma. Well matured tannins, relatively light body with a touch of cranberry — a month ago
Pretty and translucent pale ruby colour (unfiltered and unfined). Punchy strawberry aroma, slightly animalic. Really fresh on palate, cranberry flavours. The freshness is quite out-there, not an identikit wine.
It has been said that wine critics over-praise blowsy, forward wines on account of their impact during mass tastings (they stand out). I wonder if the reverse is happening with these modern fresh styles. Winemakers and critics are instead up-weighting fresh, thirst-quenching wines as they're a relief from the gallons of fruit bombs.
I enjoyed this wine, it's different but I'm not sure the complexity matches the price. — 9 days ago
Fresh honey, melon a hint of white pepper aromas. Strong acidity, fresh lime and peach stone flavour, very precise and not quite rounded out enough for my taste. — 21 days ago
Aroma leather, cherry. I wanted a straightforward cherry flavoured Italian red and that's what this is. Crunchy tannin, not complex but tasty. — a month ago
