Iconoclastic and delicious. Rocks, funk and all kinds of juicy red and black fruit

First wine from Frank Cornelissen and met my expectations. Light fruity chuggable.

A hot vintage Susucaru with 14,5% ABV makes for a good BBQ companion. Dark cherry, earth, crushed rock, tannins that bite back. Not much has changed after two years in the cellar, will probably stand for another five, but there is no need if matched with fat, salt and big flavours.

For sure some funk, but there is a vibrancy and just plain deliciousness to this wine that makes it work. Dark yet bright fruit, violets, and I always think this wine has a slight pickled cabbage smell, though that was way more apparent in the vintages I tasted a decade ago lol

Love. This. Wine. Deep red fruit, light effervescence, mild funk, suuuuper easy to drink and as someone else said “chuggable”. Follow label instructions and keep under 60 degrees (prefer it colder, 54 degrees). Haven’t met a Cornelissen wine I don’t love.

Berries, scorched earth, hint of gooseberry/citrus. Little bit more cloying than previous vintages.
