Oberhäuser Brücke Spätlese Riesling 2004

Just lovely…
Understated nose of chamomile, orangeblossom, elderflower and soft oriental spice. Dito on the palate, which also reveals lemonoil, apricot and great earthy/stony minerality.
Prime-time drinking!

Craggy Range

Te Muna Road Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2021

Delectable Wine

The pungent, plush 2021 Sauvignon Blanc Te Muna Road Vineyard (Martinborough) offers up layers of both grassy and elderflower flavors in combination with a tropical fruit salad. It's sweetly fruited and ripe, presenting a rich mouthful of Sauvignon-ness. A small portion of barrel-fermented fruit has rounded the edges, and the fragrant finish is fresh yet ripe. A little more length would be welcome; this may have something to do with the addition of younger vines from new plantings. Drink in youth for its fruity freshness.

Cloudy Bay

Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2021

Delectable Wine

The 2021 Cloudy Bay Sauvignon is a precise, focused style offering vibrant passionfruit, elderflower and gooseberry fruit. This was a low-yielding vintage, and that's reflected in the intensity of concentration and aromatic richness. With mouthwatering but balanced acidity, this is really delightful, pure and vibrant Sauvignon Blanc with stony sinew on the finish. Best consumed in youth for its aromatic appeal.

Pollino Terre Di Cosenza Red Blend 2016

@Chris MacLean not sure this is exactly the same label you had with @Sarah Bignami
I did sourced it from callmewine and i am happy enough though
What fascinated me was the corrispondence with the territorial elements so common in the surrounding
I found raspberries and wild apples, licorice, elderflower and fennel seeds and these are all parfumes you meet in the area
The tannin was lean and there is a nice mineral too.
Fairly long and enjoyable
It needed time to open up
Definitely worth the money
@Chris MacLean and @Sarah Bignami
And thanks to Armando Castagno too

Cantina Andrian

Andrius Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Lots of gooseberry, fresh herbs and elderflower upon opening.
After an hour of aeration the palate deepens and gets more serious and interesting by introducing nuances of lemonzest, vanilla and marzipan.
Beautiful Sauvignon for the buck.

Rebula Ribolla Gialla 2019

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I love orange wine!

More precisely stated: I love white wines made with extended skin contact, because the orange hue derives from a maceration with, and extraction of color compounds from, the skins of the white grape.

I also have a soft spot in my heart for Slovenian examples such as this one, made from 100% Rebula, a white grape variety planted widely in Friuli, Italy, where it’s known as Ribolla Gialla (or simply Ribolla), and neighboring Goriška Brda, Slovenia, where it’s known as Rebula, hence the Rebula-Ribolla naming on the label.

The aromatics, texture, and body are distinctly present and expressive. This winemaking method (extended skin contact for white wine) harks back to ancient times where winemakers in some of the oldest-known winegrowing regions (such as current-day Georgia) made amber wines by burying the grape must (skins included) underground in clay-based vessels called qvevri, which kept the liquid cool, preventing it from spoilage. The vessels were subsequently dug up following fermentation and/or maturation to reveal this precious amber liquid.

Sipping these wines offers a sensory window into another time, place, and tradition, not to mention they’re delicious and can be a versatile culinary partner.

This wine has an amber hue, with a mild haze. It is dry, with medium acidity, a medium body, a round mouthfeel, and medium (+) aromas and flavors of ripe peach, apricot marmalade, orange peel, grapefruit peel, quince, baked apple, hibiscus, elderflower, white blossom, hazelnut, and wet stone.

It is floral, citrusy, layered, and complex. It is delightful and could stand up well to a variety of different spices and flavors in food.

The world of orange wines is one worth exploring. These wines are often made using traditional and/or low intervention winemaking practices. Cheers!
