Without further ado...here are the wines for this week;
- We are stating off with an insta-hit!! The Montes 'Alpha' Casablanca Chardonnay from Chile! The Alpha range from Montes is their flagship, and this is a single vineyard banger where the coastal climate shines through. Bright golden, yellow with an intense, complex nose of tropical fruit aromas such as pineapple and ripe mango. The French oak gives well-integrated toasted notes with a touch of hazelnut and vanilla.
- Next up is a Beauty from the Barossa, Magpie Estates 'The Mixed Thing' Grenache/Cinsault/Carignan blend. Bright cherry, redcurrant and plum on the nose, really fresh and crunchy on the palate with lovely ripe tannins and good acidity keeping the wine fresh. Not heavy and with lovely sweet fruits of bright red and black cherry and raspberry, making it really quite easy drinking.
- Finally...We finish on an intense boi!! The Bobos 'Finca Casa La Borracha' Bobal from Spain really speaks to us at G2G...maybe because the translation is 'The House of the Drunken Woman'!! Vivid aromas with dense pure black fruit and toasty balsamic notes. The palate is complex with bramble, blackcurrant and spice characters, balanced by fresh acidity. Beautifully structured tannins give fine back-bone to this rich, full and very characterful wine.
Serious wines, for (not very) serious folk...Should be an absolute spanker!!
