Received this in the wine club and was very pleased. One of the most lush, smooth and beautiful sauvignon blanc's I have had. Served this to friends during a visit, and we all commented it was almost "very chardonnayish" Still holds the fresh and crisp characteristics you would expect, but with softer tones, and a lush feel in the mouth. This will become my special occasion sauvignon blanc.
Being a wine club selection, I am assuming this is typical of a highly rated Victoria Shiraz. Big, Bold and Fruit Forward yet refined finish.
While I appreciate the achivement of what this wine is, for me it was just a little too complex, dense, and sweet. I realize it is supposed to be all these things, and for that I respect it. However it was just a little too much for me. Not sorry I tried and learned about it, but I would not purchase this again for myself. I might however give this as a gift to a friend or collegue I know would appreciate it's style and complexities.
Just a beautiful bottle of wine. A little more complex then typical chablis wines, but very much appreciated. I guess I should have anticipated this in a Grand Cru. Served at a dinner party paired with baked mustard chicken and spinach. Everyone raved and savored this wine all evening. Very sorry it'no longer available, I would like to have acquired more.
This is actually a very nice wine, just a little too dense and complex for my taste in chardonnay styles. Since I got this in the wine club, and it's supposed to be representative of the countries style, I'm wondering if in some parts of Australia they make a lighter, crisper chardonnay style as well?
Just an excellent, beautiful, refined and elegant wine. Provided this for a dinner party we attended, and everyone raved. Several had never had a varietal Cabernet Franc before and were very impressed. Am sorry it's no longer available, because I would have bought more.
I was drawn to try this bottle because of the WS rating for 2010 and the Frescobaldi name (for which I have had some other superior wines). For me however, drinking it showed it to be nothing more than an average chianti that you can get anywhere for half the price. It wasn't bad wine, just not a special bottle with unique aspects. Kinda rough unpleasant finish however.
If you like the cru beaujolais wines like I do, then this is a wonderful example of how good they can be. Lighter, crisp, fresh, with the right amount of fruit. Very pleasant on the nose as well. Could (and did) drink this one all evening.
Was first introduced to this beautiful wine aboard a cruise ship of all places. I was not familiar with this label prior. Was so pleased with it's light crisp beautiful nature that it is now one of my two cellared special occasion champagnes (I enjoy prosecco as my everyday white bubbly). I also tend to stay away from the big name, more expensive champagnes as I feel like your just paying for the image. This is every bit as pleasing and enjoyable as the big labels at half the price.
First met this wonderful French sparkling wine as a starter associated with a multi-course meal inspired by Julia Child. Have enjoyed it many times since as my go-to rose sparkler. At parties, everyone (including myself) loves this little gem. Overall, a great tasty value.
