Snowdrift Cider Co.

Red Cider

First to rate this. 7.5% alc/vol. Label states “Made entirely from red-fleshed apples. 0ff-dry...Descendants of Kazakhstan’s wild apple forests...The pigment-rich apples yield a coral cider naturally rich in flavors of watermelon, strawberry and rhubarb”. Medium sized bubbles, foam ring persists long after pour. Coral pink in color with great clarity. Primarily apple aroma, simple profile but floral and perfumed. Crisp in mouth, very fresh tasting with a hint of unripe or green fruit character, good malic presence, moderate pulp astringency on finish. Some watermelon and strawberry character in flavor but I’m a poor identifier of rhubarb. A treat, worth seeking out. Produced in East Wenatchee WA, USA. Nanocidery makes seven ciders, 200 cases in its first year, up to 1800 cases after two years — 2 days ago

Rubentis Getariako Txakolina Hondarrabi Beltza Hondarrabi Zuri Rosé Blend 2017

Checking in on this one tonight.

Nose is more steely-strawberry right now. The palate is the surprise today, it's mellowed from the typical lime-like acidity. I'm not sure if I like it better now or when it was more youthful. The fruit and mineral notes seem more nuanced.

I still advise everyone, this is probably the best QPR in rosé, period.

I think you just like showing off at restaurants when you order it with perfect pronunciation

Louis Roederer

Cristal Brut Rosé 2008

At the Come Taste the Stars Dinner hosted by Tyson Stelzer. Tyson was gobsmacked by this Champagne giving it 100 points. The colour was Salmon with a touch of copper. Strawberry notes with rose petals. Louis Roederer have been working hard on their biodynamic regime in the vineyard. Biodynamics create greater vigour in the vine allowing the roots to penetrate deeper into the chalk. Incredible depth length and precision - stays in the mouth for minutes. Only 31 bottles came to Australia and 8 bottles used up on this dinner. One could write pages about the production techniques used in this Rose Champagne - like Carbonic Maceration of the Pinot bunches by Jean-Baptiste Lecaillon the winemaker. At Montrachet Restaurant in Brisbane. — 6 days ago

On this fall day, I was dreaming about my trip up Mt. Etna and they amazing time we had with the two owners of this winery. Cherry, strawberry mineral love. Every sip brings back a fond memory of our time in Sicily. — 5 days ago

Vino Superior for the Tuscan Terrace Rosé Blend

At the Toowoomba Wine Show Judges Dinner and brought by one of the winemakers at Sirromet. No detailed notes - too many wines; not enough time. A very acceptable Rose blend. — 19 days ago

Feet up and game on In the lounge. Time to kick it off with some BSR. Ahhhh!

Showing some leaner & more restrained fruits of; strawberries, watermelon near the rind, cherries, orange citrus-blood orange, tangerine, pink grapefruit with a splash of sugar and black cherries. Still showing their signature, soft, powdery, chalkiness with an edge of a razor. Seashell fossil, sea spray-saline, baguette crust, pink roses and florals. The acidy is always crisp and dead on for my palate. The long, rich, well balanced, polished finish persists nicely.

Photos of; one of their Grand Cru vineyards at sunset, two shots inside the House of Billecart and their beautifully manicured grounds.

Moët & Chandon

Nectar Impérial Rosé Champagne Blend

Deep pink with orange tints. A terrific amount of tiny bubbles and an amazing crispness and freshness to this. Really fine strawberries, orange zest, and peach essence upfront on the nose with that signature toasted bread coming in later. Rich and creamy in the mouth, this is a seductive and sexy stunner of a Champagne. She just keeps coming and giving you more and more. The overt sweetness fades into elegance on the midpalate and a nice tartness on the finish. That same lively fruit continues onto the palate and is joined by dried herbs, fresh cut brioche bread, and nice minerality. — 8 days ago
