Riddoch Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Riddoch Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 tasting note by Wine Lady

Riddoch Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 is kind of ‘the essence of Coonawarra’ – shows the beauty of this Australian subregion, which produces outstanding Cabernet Sauvignon wines.   What is now Wynns Coonawarra Estate was founded by Scottish pioneer John Riddoch, who planted vineyards in 1891 and built the estate’s iconic triple-gabled winery called Chateau Comaum. (Wynns.com.au)       Riddoch Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 was a dark, clear purple coloured wine with dark red hues. The aroma was potent […]

Jeff Carrel Goldfisch 2015

Wine Lady Jeff Carrel Goldfisch 2015

I am a huge fan of bone dry Rieslings, especially those from Germany and Austria. Therefore, in general, I keep away from tasting new Rieslings as very often they are too sweet for me. This time, though, I decided to buy a bottle of Jeff Carrel Goldfisch 2015 as I’ve tasted many of Jeff Carrel’s wines before and they were exceptional. This way I found an outstanding French Riesling that I could fill my cellar with!   […]

Joseph Angel Gully Shiraz 2012 (Primo Estate)

Joseph Angel Gully Shiraz 2012 was a deep ruby coloured wine with black hues. The aroma was very woody and earthy with a hint of black fruits. In the bouquet I found notes of the cigar box, forest floor, toast, some blackberry, spices and black pepper. In the mouth Joseph Angel Gully Shiraz 2012 was full bodied, powerful and rich. The palate was woody and spicy, also with just a hint of fruit flavours. There were intense […]

Wirra Wirra The Angelus / Dead Ringer 2012

Wine Lady The Angelus Dead Ringer 2012

Dead Ringer 2012, also known as The Angelus, is not only great wine but there is a very interesting story behind the name of it. In Australia you can buy the wine under the name of The Angelus, but because of similarity to Chateau Angelus Saint Emilion Grand Cru Classe, the Australian producers had to change the name of the wine distributed to European market. Dead Ringer was, in my opinion, a beautiful choice. At the first […]

Little Berry 2012 was one of my two favourite wines from Rosemount Estate portfolio. Very fresh and fruity, harmonious and smooth. Little Berry 2012 is a dark red coloured, vivid wine.

Joseph Moda Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 2012

Wine_Lady_Joseph_Moda_2012_PrimoEstate

Joseph Moda 2012 is a well-known Australian wine produced using the traditional Italian ‘Amarone method’. After picking the grapes are air-dried for one to two weeks in order to concentrate the flavours. This was first produced in 1987. “For us great wine is a sublime paradox, where concentration and finesse co-exist. Since 1987 we have used the ancient method or ‘moda’ of drying the grapes before crushing to realize this vision. The Cabernet Sauvignon (80%) and Merlot […]
