This was a delicious surprise at the end of a heavy evening !
This has a felty quality and slightly dusty tannins, lacking a bit of zest on the fruit front but quite pleasant to drink.
This wine is a blend of Shiraz and Grenache. McLaren Vale is less than an hour from Adelaide, between the Lofty Miuntains and the beaches of the gulf of Saint Vincent.
The wine story gets better. Following the 1997 Saint-Estephe, we had a 2005 Volnay made by Nicolas Potel. I checked prices on @vivino which said this would cost £252.16 nowadays.
Wonderful wine from Jim Sturgis for our Christmas meal this year.
The word "pago" derives from the Latin word pagus, a small village or hamlet,. It is used in Spain to refer to a small vineyard or olive grove that is the source of top quality produce.
Fragrant and aromatic grape from Argentina.
Soft plum and raspberry flavours.
Soft apple, pear and citrus flavours, hint of oak and vanilla, slight buttery quality but not too pronounced. #macon #bourgogne 🇨🇵
Nice well balanced red from Argentina, made with the ubiquitous Malbec.
My Vivino review:
Blackberry, blackcurrant and plum. Leather, tobacco and spice also in there. There's quite a lot going on here but it is also quite light and lively. #argentina
