This is a bit chunkier and less suave than De Bortoli’s more expensive estate bottled Shiraz-Viognier, but it’s still a very nice wine. Peppery spice marks the nose, while the flavors feature a nice blend of plum with savory notes of coffee and black olives. Drink now–2015.
A silky, lightweight Pinot Noir, this wine’s aromas and flavors are dominated by tart berries (cherry, cranberry) and an intriguing herbal edge (wintergreen?). Too bad it fades fast on the finish; it’s a rather pretty little wine.
Suitably light in body and elegant, this is a pretty, varietally correct Pinot Noir, with fruity notes of cranberry and tart cherry accented by shadings of earth and brown sugar. It’s silky on the finish, with delicate hints of coffee. Drink now.
This Riesling offers pretty white chocolate and floral aromas, but what you get on the palate isn't quite as expressive, or as unusual. Soft-bodied in the mouth, which is unusual for a Riesling, with honeysuckle and olive oil flavors on the end. Surely easy to drink, but not too deep.
