It’s young - all stem right now - but can’t wait to see where it goes! — a year ago
See previous notes dating back to May 2018 and also August 2019. Consistent notes with noticeable Kerosene aromas. Also white flowers. On the palate a soapy texture with delicious flavours of green melon. Diminished acid notes largely resolved. A wonderful mature Clare Valley Riesling holding up and will go on for a few more years. — a year ago
My buddy @Nathaniel DiMaggio turned me onto this producer. The 15s are lights out. Not from an exceptional vineyard but definitely 1er cru in name and quality. Essential oil on the nose with lemon, quince and super green lime. Acacia flowers as well. Textured but not rich. Mineral but not angular. Just really really nice and worth seeking out — 2 years ago
Another banger from Las Jaras. Simple, easy drinking and delicious. Some strawberries and jam on the front, not a ton of funk, but clean and light. Could drink this every day. — a year ago
This outstanding clarete by Jorge Monzón of Dominio del Águila has emerged as the benchmark for the revival of Clarete. Sourced from old vineyards in La Aguilera, it is a blend of approximately 35% Tempranillo, 35% Albillo and other red and white grapes such as Bobal, Bruñal, Garnacha and Pirulés, all co-planted and fermented together. Complex, vibrant, just perfect to spend a hot summer afternoon.
