    May 28, 2020 - a bit like Marlborough SB, plus raspberry note in finish. Starts from 90/100, ending in 87/100. So drink in an hour, once opened.

    April 27, 2020 - Acceptable - Good.

    Pale lemon.
    Medium (+) intensity nose of guava, tinned mango, pineapple, with some rockmelon thrown in as well.
    Dry, medium acid, with an alcoholic burn at 13.5% (worrying), medium (+) bodied, medium flavour intensity, with the palate matching the nose, with pineapple and a medium (-) mango finish.

    Drink now, this really is a simple wine all about tropical primary fruit.

    I would note that this wine was hugely influenced by serving temperature. Straight out of the fridge it was quite refreshing, enjoyable and almost had a bitter, pithy note, but at room temperature it morphed into a cloying tropical fruit salad.

    January 27, 2020 - MNB: Sauv Blanc and laterals (Home (Noe st)): (blind)
    Pale yellow color.
    Reductive nose. Not in a great way.
    Super bitter. Dry. 13%% alcohol (actually 13.5%), medium acid, super bitter.
    Neutral aromas.

    What could be this bitter? Low quality wine or a phenolic grape?
    Low-end Verdelho?

    Cheap rueda?
    Final call:
    Low-end Gruner because it's bitter.

    Actually: Marques de Riscal - actually Cheap Rueda.
    Analysis: This is a terrible wine. Super bitter.

    TA: guessed 5 (actually 5.6) - feels like there's a ton of malic. Super hard acid.
    pH: guessed 3.3 (actually 3.1)
    Sugar: dry.

    November 2, 2019 - This is the version that doesn’t have Verdejo on front label, though back label says this is the grape variety.

    Young, plain. Tinned fruit character.

    {13.5%, screwcap}

    October 24, 2019 - Nice, friendly, juicy, one-dimensional and a whiff of artificial pear.
