Rivera Del Notro País 2018

I recall loving Roberto Henriquez’ Rivera del Notro white, but his 2018 País just blew my mind. After all, he is one of Chile's most promising young winemakers and largely responsible (alongside Luyt) for the resurgence of Pipeño, a derogatory slang for peasant wine generally made with the local País or Mission grape. Grapes for this wine were sourced from 200-year-old vines in Nacimiento, in the Bio Bio region, about 300 miles south of Santiago. Light-bodied, elegant and super drinkable 😋 — 16 days ago

Pipeno Vino Puro de Uva Portozuelo

Cloudy onion skin color. Basque cider, sage, thyme, Castelvetrano olive, gardenia, onion jam, dried orange peel. Subtle, easygoing tannins, medium-plus acidity. A good low-key natty orange wine for everyday drinking. (2019 vintage) — 2 months ago

The Field Blend White Jonkershoek Valley Roussanne Blend 2017

Picked some winners to take home this weekend! Another fantastically good white, full of complexity and citrusy goodness - this time coming from South Africa. Great glass to sip slowly and enjoy as it has a nice chard meets Chablis meets a viognier...closing down with a crisp finish. This is a great blend and also looking forward to taking more of this home! — 25 days ago

La Colline Vineyard Sémillon 2018

16.5/20 (91/100) Аромат лимонного сока и мякоти зеленого яблока с легкой редуктивной нотой, напоминающей каучук. Довольно тельное с высокой кислотностью. Насыщенный вкус и тёплое продолжительное послевкусие. Этому вину нужно некоторое время выдержки чтобы достичь комплексности в аромате, потенциал явно есть. — 6 days ago
