#121

Once again, loving the pale colour, this time more cherry red, orangey at the rim. Red plums, red cherry and something like polished furniture on the nose. Intriguing and inviting. Time to get stuck in…


#122

Strawberry and cream. Totally.


#123

Damsons here. Also wood varnish, but pretty sure that’s the painters, not the wine :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


#124

Rose. That’s what the other half said.


#125

Let’s taste :slight_smile:


#126

First thought thought was it’s like a boozy Jolly Rancher. I don’t know if those sweets get sold here?


#127

Given that it’s only 11% it’s still pretty leggy on the glass.


#128

Now that you mention it, yup.


#129

FWIW, no cheese this time chez moi, however we got Warpaint playing in the background.


#130

It’s a lot more ‘warming’ than the other glass! I wouldn’t have thought this was 11%


#131

Wow… @rifka is totally right, sour cherry/strawberry tangy jellies!


#132

Getting some kefir on the palate… like milk that is a bit off


#133

Somewhat more sourness/acidity and more tannic than the Heimann. Is that a good or bad thing?.. Not quite decided yet.


#134

Not in a bad way, but would explain my polished furniture note.


#135

Maybe a bit of tamarind again.

Here’s a song about tamarind:


#136

This is like sucking on a lime…… I mean not in a bad way…

It’s definitely FRESH!


#137

OH : floral on the nose, tastes of unripe Victoria plums, that slight plummy bitterness they have when still a bit green.


#138

I was picking up a sourdough tang underneath - can see the kefir reference


#139

Oh yeah, this one is much more our speed. Fruit, juicy acidity, real lightness to it. There’s a certain sweetness in the midpalate that is quite pleasing, especially as the acidity then refreshes.

For me, it’s slightly more familiar. Maybe less distinctive than the last wine.


#140

HARIBO !!! YES!!
That’s it !
