The Donna Review
For a $6 wine – found in the Dan Murphy bin, I wasn’t expecting anything too great. But with a 2018 vintage it could go either way.
Well like a true Garnacha on pouring, it’s light and classic in its bouquet. The bouquet is lovely and could easily just leave it at this.
But on drinking it is a delicious wine, full of flavour including vanilla but oh so lovely and light in the aftertaste.
I would recommend at this price the 2018 vintage – buy it now.
Man with no palate Review
I am no wine connoisseur, if i was ever to do a blind taste, I couldn’t tell the difference between the wines if I’m honest. And if you are a connoisseur I am sure that you would find fault with this wine for any reason and I understand why. So we have to think what we had this with and the price point. This is one of the best wines we have had yet with a home made chicken curry. And we have to consider at $16, this is a ridiculously good wine. Depending what you have this wine with, I would air on caution, but as far as I’m concerned – at $6 worth every cent.
