Fernand Cina

Cabernet Franc 2014

Indeed Switzerland produces outstanding wines. This one is sophisticated brigth and vivid soft tart aromas, silky bold structure in the mouthfeel... bursting dark fruit, cassis, and flat black cherries all well balanced to a delicate finish. #wine #inwinewetrust — 2 days ago

White Stripes

Alpine Valley Pinot Grigio 2018

I’m dreaming of a white Christmas...
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This White Stripes 2018 Pinot Grigio from Victoria’s King Valley is the perfect white Christmas tipple 😜 A big thanks to Good Pair Days for my recent 3-bottle sample pack which included this beauty in.

White Stripes is a project by winemakers Nina Stocker and Callie Jemmeson. It’s based on 5 principal ‘passions’ - wine, music, friends, family and food. Complex yet fun is the unofficial motto.

This new world Pinot Grigio is a yellow shade with a peach tinge to it. Notes of fresh apples, sliced pears, florals and juicy pink grapefruit come through on the nose. In the mouth those flavours flow through with a lovely juicy flavoursome mouthfeel.

This wine was sent to me as a sample, I was under no obligation to post about it.

First Drop Wines

Vivo Arneis 2019

I’m loving the amount of Arneis popping up around the country. If you haven’t come across this white Italian grape variety yet, this ‘little rascal’ (yes that’s literally what it means!) is crisp, dry and aromatic.

I’ve had some great Arneis from the likes of Vineyard 28 and Paul Nelson Wines in Western Australia, Holm Oak in Tasmania and Dal Zotto in Victoria’s King Valley.

And now I have another one to add to that list - introducing First Drop’s ‘Vivo’ 2019 Arneis from South Australia’s Adelaide Hills region. A big thanks to Good Pair Days for sending this sample bottle over 🙌

I also love the sound of Good Pair Days matching recipe for this wine - Ham & Cheese Bake - yum!

This wine is also #vegan 🌱 friendly.

In the glass the wine is fairly pale with a lemon tinge. On the nose it’s floral and herby with some peach and nectarine coming through. It really has a gorgeous smell to it, in fact I would love a bottle of it in perfume form 😂 In the mouth it’s a mix of sweet navel oranges 🍊 , nashi pear 🍐 , green apples 🍏 and lime. Smooth and crisp!

Underrated. An aromatic, smooth beauty. Aged really well. This is showing its best now. Love it.

リリースされた当時はあまり評価されなかったワインですが、17年の時を経て、ふくよかで芳醇なワインになっていました。熟成されまさに飲み頃です。素晴らしい。

La La Land Rosé Blend 2019

Sunday Rosé session anyone?

The sun is shining and I’m in the mood to drink pink 💕

I recently received this #sample from our friends at La La Land wines (thank you 🌹). It’s from 2019 and made from
Pinot Noir in the saignée method.

Saignée or ‘bleeding’ in English refers to when a winemaker sets out to make a red wine but also might make a rosé wine on the side. If a winemaker wants to impart more colour and flavour into a red wine during maceration they might remove or ‘bleed off’ some of the pink juice early on. The juice left is more concentrated for the red wine desired and the bonus by-product is the removed juice can then be fermented separately to make a rosé. That’s some delicious multi-tasking!

In the glass we found this one a pale copper shade. On the nose it made me think of freshly picked Strawberries, watermelon and refreshing citrus. While in the mouth it’s fruity, zingy and covers the mouth with delicious flavours of strawberries/raspberries and grapefruit.

Azahara Sparkling Chardonnay Pinot Noir Rosé

It’s time to pop the bubbles! Happy #FizzyFriday wine lovers 🙌

A big thanks to Anna from Wingara Wine Group for sending over this delicious Azahara Sparkling Rosé NV summer fizz for us to try.

The Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes for for this rosè sparkling are grown in NW Victoria. And fun fact for you, the vineyard sits right alongside orange, citrus and mango groves 🥭 🍊

“Each year, the best parcels of Chardonnay age folded into a modified solera system, so that fresh flavours mingle with older, complex characters. Pinot Noir is then blended in and secondary fermentation (Charmat) is them initiated to produce bubbles and bring everything into harmony.”

If you don’t know what a solera system is, hit up google. I learnt all about them in my #WSET3 course. Very cool!

It retails at a extremely approachable $15 and I must say, it went down a treat in our house...

It’s a pretty sparkly pale peach colour in the glass. The nose has a hint of minerality mixed with apricots/peaches and cream (it was making me think of cheesecake😋) with hints of grapefruit sherbet, red berries and traces of flowers 💐. In the mouth it has some fruit sweetness mid palate but a lovely, clean dry finish. Well balanced with a smooth mousse (mouthfeel). Great value.
