Pamela scored this wine: 90/100

This could be a regular cellar-stocker. Quite full-bodied and harmonious with plush ripe berry, cherry cola, leather, spice, bitter chocolate and damp earth notes. A little puckering acidity enlivens the flavours and is excellent at helping this wine hold up to fairly rich dishes. Very enjoyable! Pair with lamb, burgers, salami and the like. Tasted August 2020.

Lovely, voluptuous Amarone at a great price point! This one had all the juicy-steak-lovers in my "bubble" gushing with adoration! Velvety, plummy, dark jammy berry, soft spice, silky tannins and just a splash of piquant acidity. Not quite a Ferrari, but a fab open-top Alpha Romeo nonetheless! Tasted August 2020

Well-structured and balanced, ripe cherry, plummy notes with a hint of Italian leather and spice, medium length finish. Perfect with fresh tomato sauce made with a delicate touch!

Great value Malbec - pairs perfectly with smoked and bbq'd food. Loads of jammy-ripe dark berry, leather, spice and cocoa flavours. Soft and easy-drinking, stock up on this one for the summer!

Flat Rock Cellars Pinot Noir 2017

Pamela scored this wine: 91/100

Flat Rock's "everyday" Pinot Noir is consistently delicious from vintage to vintage, yet each one is unique. The 2017 is balanced and fruity, with ripe cherry and raspberry, soft acidity; a little beetroot and hint of spice play out on the finish. Easy to drink!
