I'll Be In The Garden Mix
Because sometimes we need a bit of quiet. And to decide what to have with dinner. 3 whites and 3 reds from our Work From Home Series.
Bollini Pinot Grigio 2018 - “Straw yellow in colour, clear-cut and delicate on the nose, with scents of acacia flowers, minerals and pear. The fresh natural acidity supports the wine” Winemaker’s notes.
Rieslingfreak No.4 Eden Valley Riesling 2019 - "Fresh, bright, aromatic. White flowers, gooseberries. Talc and slate. Great lemon, limes, with a lingering acid back bone. The vibrancy of the palate has you salivating for more. A wine which will go the distance now and in time." Winemaker's notes. 95 points from James Halliday.
Domaine Pichot Sec Vouvray 2018 - Exceptional intensity - perfume, finesse and lip-smacking freshness. Old vine depth with texture and richness. 3 grams residual sugar (ie. dry) with refreshing balanced acidity. Stunning.
Rive Droite Rive Gauche Cote du Rhone Rouge 2018 - The colour is plummy and dark. Lifted aromatics of dark cherries, blackberries and violets roll onto the palate revealing sour cherry, marzipan, pepper and spices. Abundant upfront flavour but not like Aussie GSM. Medium-bodied with good acid to balance its fruit, very fine tannins and a snappy dry finish, it gains weight as it opens up. Fresh, simple and delicious.
Head Wines Head Red Montepulciano 2018 - “The colour is deep, bright purple; the aroma is of pepper, spice and dark cherry with undergrowth notes. Medium-bodied and softly-textured: a modern drink-young red.” 91 points ★★★★ Huon Hooke, The Real Review (good review from Huon). Included in James Halliday's Top 100 Wines for 2019. 95 points and a Special Value Award.
Scala Ciro DOC Rosso Classico Superiore 2018 - The Scala Ciro DOC Rosso Classico Superiore 2016 has a clear, dark crimson in the glass with classic Italian aromas of cherry and chinotto. On the palate, raspberry and cranberry notes meld with dried herbs, fennel and pepper. Clean acid and feathery light tannins give nice structure to this mid-weight and elegant wine. Deliciously smooth and savoury - add to this a couple of years' bottle age and the groovy label - what's not to like?
