Light & Crisp
The Wine...Thomas Penfolds Hyland Riesling 2008...The scene...Enjoying a relaxing afternoon in the yard with the wife and having a glass of wine. A bit warm outside so the wine was nice instead of a beer but didn't like the bitter aftertaste that I experienced as I had another glass. Not a bad tasting wine but don't think I would order another Riesling like this one.
Smooth & Supple
The Wine...Montebuena Rioja 2009...The scene...Dinner...Monday evening at home with a beef roast. Wife enjoyed this one as I also tossed back a few glasses of this one. Easy drinking and smooth...tasted a bit of vanilla on the first swallow. Nice price and a good taste...I finish the bottle and wanting more.
screw cap wine
Fruity & Smooth
Had this with Easter dinner with ham and leg of lamb and other assorted goodies. Dry wine with a clean refreshing taste that was very nice.
