Heartland Stickleback Red 2018

Langhorne Creek, South Australia, Australia
9 days ago

Jay scored this wine: 88/100

Always a fantastic value! Deep crimson in colour. Medium to full bodied with black cherry and berry, complimented by wood and olive notes.

The Floozie

Hugh Hamilton The Floozie Sangiovese Rosé 2019

Mclaren Vale, South Australia, Australia
10 days ago

Jay scored this wine: 84/100

Not quite what I was expecting. A little bit lean and lacking the flavours of berries I associate with quality rose.

Gran Feudo

Chivite Gran Feudo Rosé 2019

Navarra Do, Spain
10 days ago

Jay scored this wine: 87/100

Some real crowd-pleasing pink stuff here from Gran Feudo, Gorgeous color, matched with pleasing flavours of strawberry and white grapefruit. Great value.


Château d'Aquéria Tavel Rosé 2019

Rhône A.C., France
10 days ago

Jay scored this wine: 90/100

A complex rose, smacking the palate with notes of red berries, Chelan cherry, a hit of rhubarb and some herbs de Provence.


The Tragically Hip Flamenco Rosé 2019

Niagara Peninsula, Ontario V.Q.A., Canada
10 days ago

Jay scored this wine: 89/100

A delicious, bright and cherry rose. A big waft of strawberry fields hits the nose, and those berries, along with some citrus show up on the palate.

Memorable Wine

Many to choose from, for different reasons. Top 5 (in no real order), 1995 Krug Clos du Mesnil, 2001 Amon-Ra, 2005 Rollingdale Pinot Gris Icewine, 1990 Vega Sicilia, 1995 Moulin Touchais


First Wine

When I was 17, my cousin gave me a taste of '92 Beringer Private Reserve Chardonnay, and '85 Batasiolo Barolo. Both were revelations.


Unusual Wine Experience

Picking icewine grapes in the middle of the night in -15 weather.


Current Fav Wine

Reds from the Barossa and Langhorne Creek regions still own my wine heart.
