Light & Crisp
This is a very nice SB, but has only a hint of the mineral background common to this varietal in New Zealand. Letting it warm up a tad brings out a fuller taste profile of which lemon and apple are the most prevalent (for once, I agree with the reviewer). After paying $12 at Wine.com, I found it at my local grocer (H.E.B.) for $10. I bought 6 to qualify for an additional 10% discount - an absolute steal at $9.
This was a very nice Montepulciano, that opened up nicely with some air. Was fab with my Italian sausage-stuffed pork roast. Will definitely buy again.
Well balanced, full bodied Chard., where butterscotch seemed to dominate. I enjoyed it quite a bit, despite it being ever-so-slightly sweet.
screw cap wine
Though this wine had good balance and a nice long finish, it lacked a critical component: good flavor. There was some tartness, maybe a hint of pineapple, but an almost salty mud extract comes through in the end. 85 pts.
