Ochota Barrels

a forest Pinot Noir 2017

I’m a big huge mega fan of Ochota. This wine has attitude and sass and carries it all off like...I don’t know maybe it’s the “the forest” name but it is like if goth-punk-pop went royal. All the red things: cherry compote rhubarb stew and some cracked peppercorn and dried branches and bramble and a texture of earth. Love it. — a year ago

@Ellen Clifford Interesting story a few years the Rolling Stones visited Ochota Barrels from Adelaide. As Taras Ochota tells the story 3 black 7 series BMWs came up his driveway. They stayed for lunch and had a singalong on his old piano. I

@Bob McDonald amazing! That sounds about right...

Cape Mentelle

Margaret River Rosé Blend 2018

This is how we spent our Saturday night. Can you really go wrong? I don’t think so..

A big thanks to Cape Mentelle in WA’s Margaret River region for sending over this sample for us to try. It’s an intriguing blend of Shiraz 65%, Grenache 15%, Tempranillo 7%, Sangiovese 4%, Zinfandel 4% Mourvedre 3%, Viognier 2%.

For me, I found this Rosé on the savoury side, which I really enjoyed. It’s also has a bit of age on it being 2018 which I believe gave it a bit of extra complexity.

In the glass it’s a pale peach colour with a vibrant pink hue. On the nose there’s savoury berries, citrus and floral notes. While in the mouth it has wonderful bright citrus acidity with orchard fruits, lemongrass and a sprinkling of pepper. It’s more than just a fresh and fruity Rosé, it’s got character and sass 💁‍♀️

This #wine was sent to me as a sample, I was under no obligation to post about it.

All opinions are based on my own taste buds. Wine is subjective & always evolving, so make sure you drink what you enjoy!

Domaine Faiveley (Joseph Faiveley)

Clos des Myglands Mercurey 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2017

Quaranwine if the day. Looks like I may have been exposed so expect ever so many quaranwines. Ps I feel great but I am doing my part and chilling indoors next two weeks. If I don’t die from lack of hugs, I shall live to drink more more more Burgundy. Especially the sometimes overlooked Cote Chalonnaise. This is ever so exuberant. It just leaps out of the glass at you. Or maybe I’m projecting how I’m gonna be in a coupe weeks. Anyway. Ripe frisky fruits, spice, sass, with this one odd footnote that says raspberry vinegar and herbs. Keeping us thoroughly en France. — a year ago

@Ellen Clifford about a month and a half ago they had a burgundy sale and that was one of the ones I picked up. I just assumed that is where you got it!

Gary Farrell

Russian River Selection Pinot Noir 2016

Enjoyed perhaps a bit earlier than I should've but that's par for the course with my eager drinking style. Classic RRV PN, a bit lighter than I'm used to. Fricken good with my BBQ chicken and zucchini. Tart red fruit cola sass for days with an herbaceous earthy edge... — 2 years ago

Berries on the nose. Earthy and cherry notes on the palate. Good acidity. Online blind tasting by Edmunds Oast Exchange. Easy drinking wine. — a year ago

Golan Heights Winery

Yarden Galilee Chardonnay 2017

In my quest to compare old v new world kicking it off with olld world. I was worried this would be an oak bomb based on some previous vintages but there is restraint here. Golden vanilla and somehow green on the nose. The palate is bordering on rich but not. Cool climate fun that is balanced by baking spice and sass. I like this. If you want kosher for Passover (albeit not mevushal) this is for you. I’m neither of those things but finding it a pleasant Chard that flirts with oak just enough to keep enjoying. — 2 years ago
