He says: On the palate, the key for me is the red fruit doesn’t come out swinging, and there’s a beautiful balance of citrus notes without being tart.
She says: An easy drinking, summer sipper, although it may be a little too simple for some.
He says: Honestly, I’d drink this everyday if we had an endless supply.
She says: At it’s 2010 price of $14 this was a steal but even at 2011 prices, its a great value bottle of bubbles!
He says: This is a great wine at an amazing price, and it’s good to see Bordeaux deliver something other than plonk at the sub-$20 level.
She says: This tasted more New World to me than Bordeaux with its mouthwatering acidity and intense Sauvignon Blanc nose.
He says: Ahhhhhh, thank you, Rodney Strong!
She says: A gem of a wine for the price. Need I say more.
She says: …had a much better balance on the flavour profile with juicy black fruit and hints of mineral, chocolate and almost a touch of saltiness.
He says: Highly recommended at this price point!
She says: Whilst this was my favourite wine of the tasting, it didn’t ‘wow’ me like it has on occasions past.
He says: There is depth and elegance to this wine, but it has yet to reach the complexity we find in Old World favorites, which is no surprise.
He says: On first taste, I wasn’t that impressed, but after time, this wine really wowed me. Serves me right.
She says: This wine was typical Italian: cherry, earthy, with a rustic nature that evolved into elegance.
