Clairborne & Churchill


Watervale 16 Riesling Gullyview Vineyard 2019

Actually the 19. Smells like honeydew and honeysuckle, and like an Arnold Palmer a little bit. Has a creamy middle, beautifully delineated structure and a surprising amount of heft. But not negative, obese heft, like a Winston Churchill heft — a year ago

Salento Appassimento 2042

Inky garnet purple in the glass. Nose is shy on opening but opens up to dark purple fruit compote. Echoed on the huge-bodied palate with dried fruit notes (naturally) and medium tannins that come through on the long, dark finish. Medium minus acidity along the lines of an Amarone (again, naturally… it’s a great, less costly alternative), limiting its food choices but they’re there. Try it with a heavy pizza or pasta dish, or osso bucco. Cigar smokers might enjoy this with a Churchill. — 3 years ago

La Grande Année Brut Champagne Blend 2002

Popped this in anticipation of an Australian victory over England in the Rugby World Cup quarter final when we trailed 17-16 in the 2nd half. However we ended up getting trounced 40-16. This Champers was mid Lemon Gold with an ultra fine bead. Funky lemon mineral notes with apple pie pastry. Even at 17 years good tension with possibly another 10 years of cellaring. Although pretty irresistible right now. As Churchill said You deserve Champagne in victory and you need it in defeat! — 2 years ago

@David L It was David and Happy Birthday. You chaps drank some fine bottles. This 2002 vintage up there with 1996 and possibly surpassed by 2008 the experts are saying.

Réserve Brut Champagne Blend

26 degrees rainy evening in Singapore! Fresh lively citrus champagne and a hint of pandan. Went Super well with black pepper and deep fried salted egg crabs, local Singapore style of course! If only Winston Churchill did the same. — a year ago

Morphos Petillant Naturel American Sparkling Wine 2017

Flirty, slightly funky per nat. Perfect over a chat, rather than paired with food. From Sauvage, Churchill in Phoenix with Rob and Aaron — a year ago

Central Coast Dry Gewürztraminer 2017

Pale white in color. Floral and spice notes in nose. Crisp, slight seed bitterness, grapefruit peel and jasmine tea-like flavor on finish. Dry as advertised. Drying skin astringency in aftertaste, mild but pleasing somehow. Well structured. Addictively tasty. A superior gewurtztraminer. — 3 years ago
