Are you a counter? I’m a counter. I countdown or up for everything. Like today, this is my last Sunday of summer. Now, you may argue that since I don’t go back to school until next Monday, technically next Sunday is my last Sunday. But I say that weekend is just a normal weekend, since I have to go to work on that Monday. So, it’s no longer a summer weekend, it’s a regular work the next week – weekend.
See, the mindless trivial musings that fill my brain on a regular basis? It’s amazing that I ever accomplish anything worthwhile.
So, on to something to cheer me up on my last weekend of summer. On to our wine reviews.
First up we have Kemblefield 2008 Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough New Zealand, $9.99. They say: Passionfruit and gooseberry aromas combine with tropical fruit. We say: Excellent! Complex, citrusy, soft, buttery, long finish. Buy again – definitely.
PKNT Merlot, Chile, $7.40. They say: Crammed with plummy red fruits with a touch of tannin. We say: full up front, finishes quickly, mellow and smooth. Buy again – yes, definitely, well worth seven dollars and some change.
Little Penguin Merlot, 2007, Southeastern Australia, $5.70. We say: Smokey, berry, peppery, ends thinly and quickly. Buy again – yes, not bad at all for the price.
Rosemount Estate Sauvignon Blanc, 2007, Australia, $7.70.
They say: the wine delivers lively, ripe citrus and freshly cut grass aromas on the nose. The palate is dry, with vibrant, zesty fruit delivering a lively peak of varietal character and a long finish of kiwi and passionfruit flavours. We say: Citrusy, herby, watery weak finish. Buy it again – probably not.
Bohemian Highway California Pinot Grigio, 2007, $5.50. They say: zesty and crisp with refreshing aromas and flavors of melon, tropical fruit, and cool lemon/lime to finish. We say: light, sweet, peachy, smooth, citrusy finish. Buy again – definitely.
There you have it, the second installment of cheap wine reviews from people who have no idea what they are talking about, but still feel the need to say it.
