Broadland Wines

Festive Collection Shiraz

Day #3 on the advent calendar. This is a Shiraz from Australia. Very light and fruity, paired with a creamy tomato and olive cheese and a mousse au chocolat truffle. Got photo bombed by my cat interested in the cheese so I just went with it! — 4 days ago

Kapitel I Trocken Red Blend 2017

Austrian case bottle #3: this is a natural and I believe made without sulfur. Blend of Cabernet franc and zweigelt. Reminiscent of a lambic beer, with sour red fruit and almost effervescent texture. Very light. Not complex but a good quaff. Grips on the finish. — 19 days ago

Pietradolce

Etna Rosso DOC Nerello Mascalese 2017

Sicilian wine evening, wine #3
Fresh & funky with sappy berry and tart cherry + herby, spicy whiff. Light yet edgy, with surprisingly chewy tannins yet still pure fruit. There’s a nice mineral streak to it as well. Not bad, but was more interesting in prev vintages.

Lanzarote

Rubicón Malvasia 2018

My exploration of Canarian wines #3
From Lanzarote.
Spicy apples, with a whiff of nuts & herbs. On the palate appley and mellow with a mineral, spicy finish. Lacks some depth & purity and the volcanic touch, mentioned on the label.
