HOT FROM THE PRESS: A BIG WHITE WINE FOR RED WINE DRINKERS

Arbe Garbe (pron. Arbay Garbay), literally “bad weeds”, is what they call the cover crops on the Friulian Colli Orientali (“eastern hills”). It’s the mid-nineties, same scenery; two philosophy students are paying for tuition by picking grapes in the Jermann vineyards. Long hours of hard work and dream-sharing, they find one too many ideas in […]

A Gorgeous 96 Point Beauty that won’t break your heart or wallet!

I love the new Syrah Colson Canyon, a classic Tensley Syrah with its plum and darker fruits, peppery herbs, olive, and savory meatiness.

After many years the Bridesmaid wines are being rebranded of sorts.  Pam Starr (fomer Spottswoode winemaker) has been producing the Crocker & Starr/Bridesmaid wines for many years now.  Crocker & Starr was always estate grown, Bridesmaid only partially.  That has changed and so has the pacakaging. Gorgeous new labels and the same stunning wines, sort […]

Best Spottswoode Sauvignon Blanc to date!

Winery Notes:  “We approach the creation of our Sauvignon Blanc with the aim of crafting a wine that is as structured and cerebral as it is dynamic and tantalizing for the senses. This is an incredibly high bar for this noble grape, to which we give the greatest respect. To achieve this goal, our 2018 […]
