Don David (Argentina) 2015 Reserve TannatReview written for Don David (Argentina) Reserve Tannat
(12/02/11)
First Tannat I have tried, and my expectations were up given its recent accolade of "World's Best Red Wine". Overall an interesting wine, but not a home run for me. I certainly wouldn't vote this the best red I have tried this year and I suspect judging panel was won over by the novelty factor this wine possesses (how many Tannats have you had versus, say Shiraz or Cabernet based wines?). Intense colour, solid tannins, but fruit a bit too subdued for my taste. Should get better with a few years of bottle age. Nonetheless, well worth a try and great conversation starter with family and friends.

* Lowlands (Marlborough) 2010 Sauvignon BlancReview written for Lowlands (Marlborough) Sauvignon Blanc (Product not available at this time)

Oh my goodness. This is seriously good Sauvignon Blanc. Obviously this is a wine style that the NZ wine industry has become famous for, with a lot of good quality wines made with this variety. This is however something special. Gooseberry balanced with tropical fruit flavours and a zing of acidity. Absolute bargain at the price and as of today our household's summer favourite. Lovely when the sun is shining and even when it isn't. Grab it while you can.

Review written for Long Flat (Australia) Shiraz (Product not available at this time)

Good solid Shiraz exhibiting all that is expected of the variety in the hands of our Western Isle cousins. Dark fruit and spice with supple tannin spine and bold blackberry flavours. Very enjoyable quality quaffer.
