Jung Fu Girl Riesling 2015 Washington State - USA
Pungent aromas of lime and green apple laced with apple blossom and mandarin. On the palate - off dry with just enough residual sugar to tease and balance against a definitive line of acidity; flavours reflect the nose especially the apple and lime with a squeeze of lemon; balanced and well made with a moderate finish. Drink now and through 2022.
Eve Chardonnay 2015 Washington State - USA
There's no mistaking the classic combination of fresh and baked stone fruit alongside oak and its spicy vanilla and toast and butter aromas; a creamy almost cheesy layer adds to this Chardonnay bouquet. On the palate - flavours of peaches and some grapefruit with vanilla and oak spice, a toasty layer, medium acidity, medium+ weighted, firmly textured - masculine in style - balanced and well made. Drink now and through 2020.
Boom Boom Syrah 2015 Washington State - USA
Attractive, bold and fruity expression of Syrah with aromas of black currant, dark cherry and raspberry - all laced with a peppery spice and toasty wood layer - clove and vanilla with some cedar notes. On the palate - firm at first then fruity and finishing dry; flavours of ripe and sour black currant, dark cherry and plum, medium tannins and medium+ acidity, a toasty wood layer and overall a balanced and very drinkable style. Best enjoyed now and through 2022.
