Antonio Barbadillo

Aged 15 Years Obispo Gascon Palo Cortado Jerez-Xérès-Sherry Palomino Fino

Other bottlings tasted more layered, I’d like to think, but for the peni-ultimate wine equivalent of salted caramel, this is it. Caramel not sweet at all,& the more fluid body from Palamino. Perhaps a tad too salty- but who doesn’t like salted caramel? 375ml bottle. Kinda cool how many deals are to be had in the Barbadillo line up. — 4 months ago

Vigneti d'Arcagna Rossese di Dolceacqua

Really loved this—been wanting to try this producer for some time. Bright, fresh, AND complex. Will look for this in coming vintages. 60th anniversary bottling. — 2 months ago

San Antonio Winery

Cardinale American Sweet Red Blend

Sweet wines are normally not my favorite but I wanted to try this and expand my palate and I wasn’t disappointed 🙂 it has a nice flavor and is not bubbling at all. A good wine for a great price point which balances out the table. — 5 months ago

Bodegas Hidalgo

La Gitana Manzanilla Sherry

Pale light gold in colour. Aromas of Flor yeast, nutty, oxidative. Aspects of over ripe mouldy apple. Refreshing and salty, finishing bone dry. Trying to understand Manzanilla and Sherry in general. This is a fino Sherry made from the Palomino grape. The more I sipped this the more I liked it. 15%ABV. Correct me if I’m wrong but I think Manzanilla is best drunk when young and fresh. Incredible value at only $25 AUD for a half bottle. — 8 months ago

Great bang for your buck isn't it.
And yes, most Manzanillas are best drunk soon after bottling and after opening. Preferably the same day. 😁 Manzanilla has a thicker flor growth (than Fino) therefore it has more protection from O2. QED, keep it away from O2, and the safest place from oxygen is in your stomach. 😀

Boca Nebbiolo Blend 2010

Great example of what a Spanna from Alto Piemonte can be. Volcanic soil, traditional process and a great family. Red berries orange peel mint plenty of acid and low alcohol lightens the package. The bottle went empty quickly. — 4 months ago
