This one didn't live up to expectations. Tasted wrong from first sip. Did not have the usual lemon/lime, buttered toast flavours. Seemed to be overpowered by a wood vaneer/polish flavor. Three of us declared it unfit for consumption and down the sink it went. Bottle variation?? I have one bottle of the 2012 vintage left and will visit it soon. Very disappointing.

Corked failed miserably. Decanted and will see.

Ah yes, a $13 bottle of cabernet adorned with oh so many bronze, silver and gold 'best in show' stickers which screams only one thing.

Shit wine.

Guess what?! It is shit wine!!

Bought this online expecting a sauvignon blanc like white bordeaux. This was nothing like expected. It is an aperitif wine, syrupy and on the sweeter side. I find it undrinkable. I'm not a fan of aperitifs, hence the low rating. My wife likes it on ice with a mixer such as sparking juice or strawberry lemonade. No comment on how it compares to other aperitifs.
