  • Mirassou Moscato NV

    Snoothrank:

    Sweet white wine with hints of pear, peach, and perhaps cotton-candy grapes. Wet to start with a slight dry finish, but not tart or bitter. Light and refreshing, surely a party favourite or delicious enough to enjoy on it's own after dinner. I think this one gets unjustly overlooked and should definitely be considered a spring/summer classic Read More

  • One of my goals for 2019 was to read more of wine books. It's a resolution ... wine made from locally grown Muscat grapes. It was light and fragrant on its own but really came alive when we tasted it with a curried seafood dish of the type you might be served in Indonesia. A nice surprise!

  • Columbia Winery Chardonnay Columbia Valley 2016

    Snoothrank:

    White peach and blossom with tangerine zest notes and fresh herb adding another dimension. This is soft, juicy and dry on the palate showing good cool fruit notes of peach, pear and apple with a tart crisp mid palate with some melon and lemon coming through on the zesty toasted finish. Refreshing and light. Read More

  • Allure California Bubbly Peach NV

    Snoothrank:

    Alcohol makes itself known on the first sip as it is higher than other peach sparkling wines in its class, but a sweet mellow peach follows thereafter. Nearing the end of the glass, the peach becomes pronounced and it can be easily forgotten how strong it can be until finishing off a second glass. Not much fizz, which works for me because I do...
