Bruce scored this wine: 86/100

First of all I was a little concerned due to the low price. I had nothing to worry about. This was a pleasant surprise. It had a nice smooth fruity flavour that finished dry but not too much. A pleasant wine with a nice mix of fruit and slight pepper finish to it. As I said, given the low price it was a nice surprise how good it was. Nice wine and great value !

This was a celebration bottle that I had bought at the winery ( less expensive than now ). It was so nice with a taste of ripe fruit, I really pick up black currants and cherries. It has such a wonderful smooth finish on the palate ! It could be quite nice with many different foods and cheese. To be honest I didn't have it with food it was just for the pure enjoyment !

This was a pleasant surprise given the reasonably low price. It's has a nice fruity flavour of berries like raspberries or currants. What I particularly enjoyed was it finished smooth on the palate. Full body but not heavy, nice balance.Went very nicely with home flat bread that had grilled veggies, olive oil, slices and pesto.

To be fair I'm basically a red drinker but I do drink whites from time to time. This was a dry white that was fruity and fairly light but I wasn't that taken with the finish. It seemed a little bitter to me with a bit of an aftertaste.

This was a nice ruby red medium body wine. We actually had this with some havarti cheese and crackers while sitting at a bon fire. Nice berry flavours with a hint of spice. Finished very nicely, and I felt a good value !
