Teutonic Wine Company

Seafoam Alsea Vineyard White Blend 2020

This “white wine” by Teutonic drinks kinda like a cross between a rose and and orange wine, with a round and full mouthful, medium acid, and the slightest bit of RS that makes it so thirst quenching and lively. Interesting bottle. — 15 days ago

Franz Hirtzberger

Hochrain Smaragd Riesling 2001

If you could guess this white wine was 20yo i would be highly impressed
Colour is still pale to gold
On the light spectrum of the SMARAGD(😉) category, being only 13% in alcohol
It has a ripe pear, nectarine
Then moves to hints of marzipan and hay
But what it stands out is the mineral
Chalk and wet stones are extremely pronounced on the nose and on the palate
It drinks still extremely young and i am sure it will flesh out in the future i reckon
Long and too easy to go down
I had another bottle of this wine perhaps 5 or 6 years ago and i think this looked younger and with more potential than that, but i will go and cross check what i am saying now.
Few things i figure out from tonight bottle:
Firstly Hirtzberger IS my favourite producer in Wachau, then that Spitzer is surely a fresher subclimate than, for example, Dursteiner and lastly that light Smaragd and Federspiel are more my cup of tea rather than huge 14-15% smaragd(and in saying that i dont deny the bigger potential of the latter, i just enjoy more the former). Ok, i got it down for future reference so that i can't forget.

Château Figeac

La Grange Neuve de Figeac Saint- Émilion Grand Cru Red Bordeaux Blend 2011

Not an easy vintage for anyone in bordeaux. This is very elegant and understated with this sophisticated blend of Merlot and the cabernets. Right bank meets left bank and is a good cross. One of the last vintages of the old regime at Figeac and highly recommended !! — 21 days ago

Sutter Home Winery

California Chenin Blanc

Surprisingly nice…
Bought this bottle on a whim. Was happy to say I was pleasantly surprised with my purchase. I normally drink Riesling and I’m OK with the dry variety. This Chenin Blanc to me is like a cross between Chardonnay and Riesling. Definitely a semi dry style as described. A simple, uncomplicated, lovely, crisp white.

Y Rousseau

Russian River Valley Tannat 2017

Delicious. Deep, dark - almost black. Kind of reminds me of a cross between an Aussie Shiraz and a good Sonoma Zin. Fruity, blackberries and some pepper/ spice. Nice soft wine, mellow tannins ( a surprise). Great with grilled skirt steak. And a nice sipper after. — a month ago

Azienda Vinicola I Pastini

Rampone Minutolo Valle d'Itria Fiano 2020

100% Minutolo from Puglia, light white with floral & lemon dominating with stony / almost wooly minerality. slight grapefruit notes as well. Reminds me of a cross between Sauv Blanc’s citrus, Chenin’s minerality, and Torrontes’ floral notes. Lighter than all those though, with medium acidity — 5 days ago

La Colombera

Il Montino Colli Tortonesi Timorasso

Reminds me of a cross between a white Burgundy and an Albarino, with aromas teetering toward a Chilean Chardonnay. Notes of ripe pineapple, citrus, hay, almond butter, and minerals. Beautiful, unsung wine deserving more attention. — a month ago
