Old is gold. Dry but tinge of fruit — 2 days ago

Decanted for 2 hours. Pale purple, clear rim and medium viscosity. On the nose, red fruits - cherries, strawberries, raspberries, wild flowers, spices and chalky minerality coming through. On the palate, a delicate balance of red fruits, spices, dancing acidity, tannins that still very much there and a long finish. This is a complex wine but very well integrated and a pleasure to drink! Will be superb in 5-7 years when the tannins soften to be round and silky and play with the lively acidity adding even more linearity. Nonetheless, this is a good 1er Cru with a good expression of a classic burgundian. — a month ago
Nose of lemon, lime, honeycomb, and sea breeze. Very dry and high acid on the palate. Lots of citrus, minerals, and a touch of honeycomb on the finish. Mayb ea touch of yellow apple as well. Crisp, clean, and tasty. — 12 days ago

It is Saturday night and I have opened the Maurice Bonnamy Crémant de Loire Rosé Brut. A blend of 100% Cabernet Franc grapes from south of Saumur.
On the nose there I find strawberry, raspberry, tart cherry, minerality and some yeasty qualities.
On the palate there are notes of strawberry, raspberry, tart cherry, bell pepper, yeast and food minerals.
This sparkling wine has a beautiful salmon pink color with a constant fine bead that is medium bodied with high acidity and a long fresh, crisp, clean finish. Continued good health and stay safe. Nostrovia! 🥂🥂🥂🥂 — 12 days ago
Fat and round, apple and honey to start, but nice tart finish — 5 days ago
Dense Crimson in colour. The nose and palate on this full bodied red are more reminiscent of a South Australian Red than the medium bodied savoury style typical of the Hunter Valley. Just the faintest hint of HV sweat and earth. This showed rich ripe black currant with smooth tannins. It’s a pity there was a time when HV wines tried to mimic the SA styles which were more popular. This is an example of that. Quite a good wine but not true to its origins. Thankfully the main HV wineries have returned to their original style - think Mount Pleasant Maurice O’Shea, Brokenwood Graveyard and Tyrells Individual Paddocks. — 6 days ago
