Join me as I try as many new wines as possible! #winetastingnotes #wine #wineblog
Mr Spittoon and I recently got stuck into this SSB while cooking up a BBQ dinner on the deck. Firstly I have to say, this wine is A.MAZ.ING on the nose.
Sampaio is an aromatic white blend. It's made up of Torrontes, Godello, Palomino and Treixadura. These 4 grape varieties are all local Spanish varieties.
It's a pale yellow-green shade in the glass. On the nose it's fresh and fruity, think melon, lime zest and honeysuckle. Read More >>
The blend for this white changes every year, it’s a mix of Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Müller Thürgau, Muscat, Pinot Gris and Chardonnay. Read More >>
Introducing Meta Wine, a small batch, organic wine producer based in Melbourne. I recently tried their 2016 Dark Matter Cab Sauv Merlot, read more >>
The nose is full of vanilla infused cherries and earthy mushrooms. It’s fruity and savoury on the nose and in the mouth too. Read More >>
The fruit for this 3drops Pinot Noir comes from vines which were planted in 1982 in WA’s Great Southern Wine Region. Continue Reading >>
Montepulciano is an Italian red wine grape & winemaker Mike Farmilo has created a delicious Aussie made one available exclusively from Cellarmasters.
This Millon Estate 2017 The Royal GSM hails from SA’s Barossa Valley and comes in at a nice 14% abv. Aka a great winter warmer ;) Read More >>
The 2018 ‘Rosé is the new black’ is a collab between Wine Gallery & Hedonist Wines in SA’s McLaren Vale. It’s made from a blend of Sangiovese & Grenache.
"An explorative collection of wines created from alternative grape varietals. Built to challenge your palate, these wines are packed with soul.."
While maturing, this Chardy spends time in French oak to help give the wine a creamy texture + it undergoes partial malolactic fermentation. Read More >>
This Rosé is made from 100% Grenache grapes and retails for $18. Like the Riesling we tried recently, it has a heat-sensitive label for a unique touch.
I’m a sucker for a good Riesling. This Millon Wines ‘The Impressionist’ 2018 Riesling is made in SA's Eden Valley and by gawd I love that label.
I love the uniqueness of this wine label as it’s heat sensitive! When you warm up the black square on the front with your palm, grapes appear! Read More >>
I picked this up at a tasting we went to back in 2015 at MyattsField - it was a competition between the 3 winemakers using grapes from the same block.
