The Donna Review

The Wine Merchant at Dam Murphy’s recommended this and was insistent that you really had to have it with a red meat dish – which I felt Lasagne kinda meets this.

We did decant this around 45 minutes before we ate and as a 2014 there was alot of sediment – so glad we didn’t pour straight from the bottle. I was expecting great things, especially as it was recommended and also the vintage year.

Well it doesn’t disappoint, lovely bouquet and colour in the glass. By it being slightly cooler in temperature I really think this helps to bring out the crispness and flavours. 

Goes really well with food, but not a wine to drink on its own.

Although the label say oak I didn’t pick this up whilst drinking.

Rating: 4/5

Man with no palate Review

The mistake we made with this wine is that we left it in a room that was cold. Had we put this by the fire for 30 minutes to bring up to a warm room temperature this wine probably would have benefited more.

Don’t get me wrong this is a good wine, I just don’t think we did it any great service. That said this is a tasty wine, pretty much holds its flavour almost to the end. At $35 this wine is worth seeking out.
