Kim Crawford Spitfire Sauvignon Blanc 2015

Marlborough, South Island, New Zealand

Claria scored this wine: 89/100

Its a powerful wine in taste for my liking, however its subtle and soft. I sensed hints of fruitful guava, which I loved. I would enjoy it as an after dinner wine.

A terrific wine. Fresh and crisp with a hint and flavour of pineapples. I prefer this delicious wine shrimp & salmon, as it provides a perfect blend with its calm citrus taste.

Château des Charmes Rosé 2012

This sparkling will leave a dazzle! It's crafted in the traditional method, used to make champagne, and it shows. Its like candy on the palate, it's light but perfectly light. On the palate is like a small bouquet with a very nice and sweet ending. On the nose, the fruity aromas of various flavours is what draws you more in. A perfect summer/patio sparkler, no need for mixing with anything as its perfection on its own.

My Favourite at Taste Ontario 2016! The name caught my attention, which then transcended into a memorable experience. On the nose the wine is sweet with a swift of vanilla. On the palate I believe is the vanilla flair, which is smooth, that creates such a silky finish. Not very acidic, which makes it the more pleasurable. There are cherry flavours on the palate which are added for the right touch. Very enjoyable wine.


Trapiche Astica Merlot Malbec 2008

Mendoza, Argentina

Claria scored this wine: 85/100

Just enjoyed this wine with lunch and I love the fact its not too complex in taste. Not the biggest Merlot fan but this balance does me just right. It's not very strong, the cherry fruit taste is pleasant and the aromas even more so. I think the smoothness of this wine is what captivates me. Very enjoyable wine.
