Sharp, a bit tart with citrus and green apple but a nice, elegant mouth feel. Interesting.

A lot of better than the note below suggest. Yes, it does not have the acidity of champagne or the heat (expected of course without alcohol) but it has the feel of prosecco with green apples, grape and elderflower on the palate. Was the non-drinkers preferred drink.

Hot with gloopy red & dark fruits on the nose. Palate was slightly better with the alcohol a bit more balanced with the fruit and tannin. The heat from the alcohol is still noticeable though. Some earthy elements with the red fruits on the palate but the wine overall just felt unbalanced though.

Plenty of fresh red fruits on both nose and palate. Surprisingly well balanced for a garnacha with the alcohol complementing the fruit and tannin levels. Easy to drink.

A light and simple new world Chardonnay with citrus, tropical fruits and spring flowers on both nose and palate. Not a lot of complex characters but does the job well as an easy quaffer.

Dark red fruits with pepper and spice on the nose. Palate is similar with a dusty soil element in the mid palate. Better with food than on its own.

Thick sweet syrup of honeysuckle, elderflower, apricots, jackfruit, honeymoon with a slight bitterish aftertaste. Good acidity throughout. Lovely.

Delicate nose of spring flowers and steely minerals. High acidity with lime, unripe melon, hints of peach and kerosine. Sharp finish. Better with food than on its own.

Slightly past its peak, acidity has diminished and the off dry sweetness of honey, melon, lime and hints of kerosine seem slightly off balance.

Honeysuckle, Jasmine and slatey nose. Decent acidity with decent body for a Pinot Gris. Slatey, chalky minerals with honeyed pears on the palate. Elegant. Would be interesting to see how it evolves further.

Very interesting wine - plenty of acidity with restraint lime and summer flowers before profiles of slate, chalk and steely minerals came to fore. Feels tight, still too young perhaps?

Lovely almond, hazelnuts, brioche and citrus on both nose and palate. Good balance, smooth and elegant. Very nice indeed.

Off dry bubbly which went well with spicy food. Good balance.

A simple, slightly non description Pinot Grigio. Refreshing and easy drinking on a very hot and humid summer's evening.

Young, tarty red fruits, hints of earth with plenty or acidity. Light / medium bodied. Better with food than on own.

Plenty of acidity, well integrated tannins with red fruits starting to fade a little. There are noticeable secondary characteristics including earth, mushroom and soot. A smokey note was very noticeable on the nose.

Fresh red berries, smoke and hints of eucalyptus on the nose. Palate a bit tight and unforgiving with silken red fruits, smoke, oak and tar. Closed phase.

Barrel sample at Mouton Rothschild. A beast of a wine with tightly pack red fruits, earth, fresh herbs, carbon and oak. High tannins but everything seems to be coming together nicely. Have absolutely no experience tasting barrel samples but this wine seems to be coming along very nicely.

Soft, easy drinking red. Very fruity and enough acidity to cope with south East Asian food.

Can be identified immediately as a kiwi Sauvignon Blanc with grass, asparagus and herbal elements. More elegance and less powerful / intense mouthfeel than the typical Marlborough example but am unsure if is for the better. Split the group.

Butter, yeast, bread, citrus, white fruits and hints of caramel on both nose and palate. Very oxidative style, big but relatively elegant. On this bottle, might be starting to decline.

A relevation of the evening. 83% Frontignac & 17% Gewürztraminer. Between off dry and sweet. Very lightly sparkled. Sweetish with plenty of tropical (lychee, mango, pineapple) and summer flowers profiles. Fresh and not coying. Went very well with spiced South East Asian food. Will be getting more.

Dry with a noticeable waxy character, as expected from the semillon component. The white fruits, whilst slightly diminished is still fresh, and there are caramel and honeysuckle notes developing. Drinking well at the moment.

Medium bodied, very fruity with plenty of red fruits. Decent acidity which helped to cut through pork fat. Simple, not too interesting, but very drinkable.

Crisp, slightly fading red fruits with noticeable earthy notes. Good acidity and tannins very slight but noticeable. Quite elegant. Can be easily identified as an old world Pinot Noir though possibly not from Burgundy. Interesting and rather enjoyable Pinot Noir from Alsace.

Sweet thought not too sweet, decent acidity, with apricots, jackfruit, honeysuckle, summer flowers as well as hints of burnt caramel. Incredibly long length (over 1 minute). An incredible bottle to open on my 40th birthday.

Dry with a hint of sugar. Lime and minerals dominate the nose and palate. No hint of petrol or kerosine. Shortish length. Hit the spot for something simple and decent to add to and drink with Nigella Lawson's Coq a Riesling. Food wise, much better compared to when an Australian Riesling was used.

Dry with searing acidity. Plenty of lime and kerosine notes in both nose and palate. There is a perception of weight behind the flavour profiles which made the shortish length very surprising.

Fresh grassy nose with some ripe summer fruits. Dry with grass, asparagus, ripe white fruits and hints of herbal elements on the palate. If tasted blind, 1st guess would be a Kiwi Sauvignon blanc, probably Marlborough. Decent though not too complex. Quaffable.

Plenty of earth & barnyard funk on both nose and mouth. Tannins fully integrated. There is still some aged red cherries and raspberries though the fruit intensity is starting to fade. Still decent amount of acidity though the wine is on its way down.

Fresh red fruits with hints of bubblegum on the nose. Light bodied though the slight mineral streak in the palate gave the impression of being slightly fuller bodied. Raspberries, red cherries and a little earth and fore mentioned minerals on the palate. Decent length. A nice midweek drop.

Interesting wine. Started off with stone fruits though ended the evening tasting of tropical fruits. Throughout this time, the wine wine remains fresh with a decent amount of acidity, a little oak and quite mineral driven. A nice drop of wine, especially for the price.

Earthy, leathery and musky initially though fresh red fruits came to fore after 30 minutes. Light bodied with a bit more bite tannic bite than expected from a burgundy. Lovely, and went well with our beef and lamb steaks.

An excellent example of a premium bubbly worth its premium price. Youthful with plenty of primary flavours but it is oh so measured and elegant. Was brilliant on its own and with Christmas meal and all its trimmings.

Quite a strong vanilla / oak nose alongside white fruits & flowers as well as hints of grass. The herbal / grassy element more prominent on the palate suggestive of sauvignon Blanc but the citrus and wax character threw most tasters off. Only 1 in 6 guessed it as a bordeaux blanc. A few years in the bottle has changed the character with the room being split with a couple not fancying it whilst a few adored it.

Has a fragrant and charming nose of summer fruits and flowers which did not really translate to the palate. Off-dryish. It has a bit more character than the usual Prosecco but this style of wine does not really tickle my fancy.

Grassy but quite rounded with spring fruit flavours. Halfway between a typical kiwi sauvignon blanc and one from the Loire Valley.

Smell and taste like a basic (though well made) Chardonnay. Plenty of acidity. The white fruits and flowers whilst pleasant, did not make much of an impression.

96% Shiraz, 4% Cabernet Sauvignon
Powerful with plenty of tannins, dark fruits and alcohol. A big 'hot' wine from a hot year.
