Cascinetta Vietti Moscato d'Asti 2019

Pale lemon color with aromas of ripe stone and tropical fruits and floral notes wrapped in a frizzante. On the palate flavors of peach, apricot and mango with white floral notes. Good balance, lively acidity, medium finish ending with ripe fruit character. Nice! — a month ago

The FMC Stellenbosch Chenin Blanc 2012

Brightest and most brilliant golden yellow I’ve ever seen, almost fluorescent!
Very unctuous and oily, sexy, Rubenesque.
Dense apricot, peach and mango. Thick layer of honey, some minerals. Full bodied and sweetish at first, getting drier towards the very long, harmonious finish.
Impressive and delicious!

Pale lemon color with aromas of stone, tropical and citrus fruit with floral and honey oak. On the palate flavors of pear, apple, peach, and lemon curd, slight notes of botrytis with oak wrapped in balanced acidity. Long finish ending with a chalky zesty mineral and bread character. Nice! Will age a bit! — 2 months ago

Condrieu Viognier 2017

We had the 2017 Vintage on 12/5-6/22. A floral bouquet. On the palate, stone fruit, honey, white peach and apricots. A full bodied wine that is well balanced. Nice mouth feel. Truly different from a California Chardonnay. — 4 months ago

Kastanienbusch Riesling 2014

What a wine. Terrific nose of citrus fruits, spice and stone fruits. Lots of tangelo and peach. Huge minerals looming. Wow the aromas are magic after 9 years of age. 9.6 nose. So clean. Almost a lanolin like thing as well. Palate is so pure and balanced. Great concentration and sap with huge minerals and lots of fleshy tangelo and peach but finishes super mineral and dry. Very complex and still has great structure. Brilliant stuff and has at least 10 years ahead of it. — 2 months ago

Leeuwin Estate

Art Series Margaret River Chardonnay 2014

Shay A

In keeping with the Aussie theme from a recent Grange dinner (1997-2001, 1998 was the clear winner), this was brought as a starter.

With about 9yrs on it, this is the oldest Leeuwin Art Series Chardonnay I’ve had, and I’m impressed at the evolution. Slightly reductive (sweet smoke) upon opening, but it added great character. Color was a beautiful deep yellow (but not oxidized gold). Tropical (white peach, nectarine) but also honeyed cashews and honeysuckle aromatically. Great depth on the mid-palate with added tropical notes carried by faint oak but a distinct mineral driven finish. Drinking beautifully. Wish I had more.

@Shay A Totally agree Shay. I shared a bottle at the Gold Coast just before New Year with about 8 of us and 2 kilos of prawns. A perfect match. Followed by a 2015 Woodlands Chloe which kept up the standard.

Joh. Jos. Prüm

Wehlener Sonnenuhr Spätlese Riesling 2004

After our discussion on the two kabi’s (see my notes on the 18’ Haart Ohligsberg Alte Reben kabi for more info), I asked SC what Prüm brings in terms of a signature… what’s typical of Prüm basically. His answer - sulphides. Hahahahaha. Couldn’t be truer. Took some time for all that to blow away, but once it did… Boah! Our WOTN.

Still so youthful (I’m sure all that sulphides helped). Citrus, peach, white flowers, crushed slate, herbs, and spices. Really filigreed and pure; bringing lots of juiciness in the mid-palate and finishing with an airy feel. Expectedly sweet but very balanced at this stage. So good.
