(2016) Pure, high perfume, lots of flowers, and almost jasmine like fragrance, with fresh citrus and fresh, crunchy apple. The palate is bone dry, with a sweeping citrus juiciness but lemon rind and pith too, giving those dry, very fresh characters, then it turns quite grippy, a bit of phenolic grip, though still juicy and tangy.
(2011) >From vineyards at 1,700 metres altitude, this has a gorgeous floral lift, with some herbs and some almost geranium like fragrance over the black fruit base. This very expressive Malbec continues on the palate with some meaty tones, the tight, endive and liquorice tannins adding a vital edge and the sweet fruit canoodling with the acidity to delightful effect in the long, sinewy finish. A fabulous buy at the offer price with immediate drinking appeal. Domaine du Tariquet, Classic 2010, Côtes de Gascogne, France, Dry White
(2010) There's a touch of gold to this pale yellow wine, and a nose that's only gently floral and herbal, and much less expressive than many examples of this grape. There's a touch of tangerine skin and some lemony notes. On the palate this has a bit of phenolic grip, the pithy bite of citrus and plenty of acidity keeping it crisp and fresh, if fairly simple. Seems rather too high a price for the content of the bottle in the final analysis.
(2008) >From Salta, a really honeyed quality with ripe nectarine and pineapple and just a touch of that floral Torrontés perfume. Mouth-filling, limpid, with herb-tinged crunchy apple and citrus fruit.
(2008) Traidcraft growers receive 25%-35% more money for their grapes. Delightfully aromatic, perfumed nose, with zesty citrus and a touch of nutmeg. Citrussy, with orange and lemon fruit and nimble acidity.
(2008) Elegant nose of quite delicate lemon fruit, with little notes of jasmine and tangerine. A powerful wine, with a pithy, lemon and grapefruit dryness. Nuances of a riper,more peachy fruit before acidity kicks in.
