Time for some much needed ‘Therapy’! 😉🍇 . Swipe to see my favourite wine of the night. 🤩 . Relaxing on the sofa at Grape Therapy, listening to jazz music & sipping on wine made for a perfect date night! 🎵. . When you have two munchkins 🥰 & your husband travels a lot ✈️, we try to grab whatever time we can get for uninterrupted conversation. 🍷🍽 . My favourite wine was this Albariño by La Marimorena from the Rias Biaxas region in Spain. 🇪🇸 . With a deep gold colour this was not your usual Albariño...age, skin contact & lees stirring all contributed to boost structure & complexity (aka gave it some oomph 💪). . And it was delicious too. 😋 . . . . . grape.therapy #Ilovewine #Winelover #winemoments #wineexperience #Youcansipwithus #Winewinewine #itsallaboutthewine #wineoclock #winenot #wineaccount #winelifestyle #Wino #Instawine #Winestagram #Winenerd #Winegeek #Wineaddict #Corkdork #Winelife #Winemum #Winemama #Brisbanewine #Brisbanewinelover #Winelife #Winetime #Winemoments #Trynewwines #wineoftheday #Brisbanewinelovers #Winebrisbane #Brisbanewinebar

Dec 7, 2019

Always a special treat. René and Vincent Dauvissat is arguably one of the greatest Chardonnay producers in the world. These wines have an incredible depth to them that are rarely surpassed. ◾️ What sets these wines apart is their traditional style of winemaking combined with an insane lineup of Premier Cru and Grand Cru sites in Chablis. Oak is used but not in a over the top buttery sense. The barrels are 6-8 years old adding a rich texture and softening that classic Chablis austerity. Balance and complexity are always prevalent. ◾️ Their Premier Cru “La Forest” site has the ability to drink as well and sometimes even better than a Grand Cru. With old vines and the Kimmeridgian soil seen around the Grand Crus, this wine has a richness and texture that will stay with you. It is one of those wines that I will never forget what it tastes and feels like. Dauvissat’s wines are rare and I highly recommend buying a bottle if you have an opportunity to. #bucketlistwine #chablis #chardonnay

Dec 7, 2019

I recently asked for guesses as to what viticulture was founded by the Dutch East India Company? The answer is South Africa. The Dutch East India company established a supply station in the Cape of Good Hope in South Africa. It was there that Dutch navigator Jan van Riebeeck was given the job of managing the station and planting vineyards to produce wine. The first bottle was produced in 1659. And that was the beginning to a long story that lead to this beautiful South African wine. It’s honestly one of the best wines I enjoyed this year! Sadie Family Columella 2016 🍇 Syrah Blend of Syrah, Mourvedre, Cinsault, Grenache, Tinta Barocca 🥴 13.5% 📆 The wine spends 1 year on the lees in tight-grain French oak (5% new). The wine is then racked into big oval foudres for an additional year of maturation on the fine lees. After a total of two years the wine is bottled without fining or filtration*

𝐌𝐞𝐠𝐚 thank you to everyone who attended my talk & apologies that I crammed 40 mins of content into 25 mins!

Dec 7, 2019

2016 Syrah: Lewis Cellars Ethan’s Syrah: Napa Valley, CA: Dark rich inky plum in the glass and legs show every bit of 15.5%. Just a beautiful monster as it swirls almost blackish fruit at times. Nose is an explosive mixture of licorice, spices, dark ripe blackberries and a certain smokiness. Enjoyed this one over two nights and the second night introduced an additional tabacco/espresso note on the nose. On the palate it is a mouth coating deliciousness, not jammy just filling in its youth with chewy lingering tannins on the finish. Saw positive notes on this one and it was at one of my local shops, and turned out to be an excellent pick up. Will be gathering some more as this one punches above its weight with a great QPR. Cheers to the weekend winos 🍷 #wine #vinho #wino #winelife #winecollector #instawine #winestagram #winepro #corkdork #winelover #winestagram #wineoclock #winegeek #drinkwine #wineinfluencer #wineporn #winelife #winetasting #wine4wine #lewiscellars #lewiscellarswinery #syrah #napavalley #napawinery #napa #napawines

Dec 6, 2019

One of the many joys of wine is in discovering something new. There's always a wine waiting to be uncovered to the adventurous wine drinker. It could be an unusual variety, an unexplored country or region or an undiscovered producer. The day I lose that excitement for learning what is below the next cork is the day it's all over. Thankfully that is unlikely to happen. The label of this Aussie Shiraz sprung from the shelf & instantly took me back to my first Oddbins. We had a number of Ralph Steadman designed posters hiding cracks in the wall. I'll never forget the terror of the breadstick eaters... Made by Payton & Jones this Yarra Valley Syrah has 5 years on it & is absolutely stupendous. Behn Payton & Troy Jones formed this minimal intervention, sustainably farmed operation in 2007. Alongside Behn's dad, Peter, they're based in Healesville, just NE of Melbourne. There's no fining or filtering here & this Syrah is partially whole bunched pressed. This is a super duper complex but of kit. The Syrah comes from the Kangaroo Ground vineyard at 212 m.a.s.l. & is all black basalt & clay. Shut up! Rocks are cool. Yarra was first planted in 1838 but was hit badly by Phylloxera in the 1880's. Today it's very on trend, particularly for Chardy & Pinot Noir, which account for over 50% of the 4000 or so planted hectares. This really is a belter. Australia is where it all started for me & I've had a few great bottles this year that have reignited my love for the country. Long may Payton & Jones continue knocking out sterling kit like this & may we all continue to find excitement and joy in grape juice. Remember: it's just grapes. #wine #winelover #winedrinker #winetasting #winemerchant #wineeducator #winenerd #corkdork #winetime #wineoclock #instawine #winestagram #winesof2019 #winesofinstagram #drinkbetterwine #wineporn #winereview #wineeducation #winepuns #itsjustgrapes #Australia #Yarra #Syrah #redwine noble_green_wines

Dec 6, 2019

Lunch is key when #winetouring and Farmstead longmeadowranch in St. Helena was pretty freak’n delicious. First we stopped in and did a tasting at the general store, then headed over to the restaurant after working up an appetite. What’s particularly cool about this spot is that they’re engaged in full circle farming — an #organic and #sustainable way of farming that interlocks the various parts of the ranch to better the whole. 🍷 1. Couldn’t resist the grass-fed cheeseburger w cheddar, buttermilk bun, arugula, classic condiments, crispy potatoes — which were awesome. The cattle for the beef are raised by them and the resulting burger is big, messy, juicy and delicious. It hit the spot on a rainy day. 🍔 2. This crab roll was on special and we shared it as an app. My mom was still dreaming about it days after. 🦀 3. Di Stefano Burrata with roasted garlic, estate olive oil, wood fired pita. I really love this burrata plate. It’s not just the deliciously creamy cheese, but also the components and in particular the super fresh pita that really make their version stand out. 🧀 4. A little prosciutto can only make things better. 🐷 5. An arugula salad with apples, almonds, skyhill farms feta, citrus dressing for my always food-virtuous mom. 🥗 6.Pinot to pair with our lunch. 🍷 7. The 2008 Cab was another favorite from our pre-lunch tasting. Delicious all around!

Dec 6, 2019

Today’s wine is another stunning bottle from one of my all time favourite producers weingut.ck I’ve reviewed a number of their wines and still have a few more to go - I can’t get enough of them! . . 🍷 From the first sniff, this 2018 Spätburgunder is perfumed and full of fragrance. Black and red cherry, cola, sweet blackcurrant and dark raspberries all balanced with a comforting earthiness. The palate has great acidity and firm, grippy tannin. The profile from the nose is now drier, darker, with some added stem complexity. The cherry and cola are still there but now with a touch of pepper and spice. The long cherry finish makes this a lovely winter warming wine - although I’d happily drink this at any time of the year!! . . 🎼 To go with this wine, I’ve paired the music from the photo - it’s the third movement (Rondo - Allegro Scherzando) from Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No.1 in C Major Op.15. It’s majestic, triumphant and uplifting on a cold winter’s day in the UK - it’s also how the wine makes you feel! . . #CarlKoch #WeingutCarlKoch #Germany #Spätburgunder #GermanSpätburgunder #GermanWine #GermanRedWine #Wine #RedWine #Beethoven #Piano #ClassicalMusic #WinePhotography #LondonWineDrinkers #WineGeek #WineNerd #CorkDork #WinesOfInsta #InstaWines #WineDrinker #WineLover

EVER ASK YOURSELF “WHY DID I JUST BUY ONE?”❓ 🔻 🔻 That’s how I felt after sharing a bottle of 2016 Edge Cabernet Sauvignon. A Signarello project with dense black fruit and hints of raspberry liquor on the nose. It’s flavours were rich but soft, very concentrated with tannins that grip on the finish then lightly lifted by the acidity. It was a cool summer in 2016 resulting in complex and layered Cabernet Sauvignons. Every taste was a new emotion. . 🔻 🔻 There’s always online shopping, I suppose. #alexandervalley #wine #vin #cabernetsauvignon #edgewine #californiawine #winestagram #winetasting #winelovers #winetime #winelover #winestagram #rednails #corkdork

From the owners of Ribera del Duero’s legend, Vega Sicilia: Alion. This 2015 was just spectacular: earth and spice notes mingle with plum and licorice. It’s tannins and acidity keep this wine balanced and structured. A great expression of a Tempranillo, one that can easily age for a couple more years. Also, each bottle is numbered, which is phenomenal in my opinion. 🍇 Tempranillo. . . . . . . . . #wine #winetime #wineoclock #tempranillo #riberadelduero #spanishwine #winereview #winelover #wineenthusiast #corkdork #wineanddine #sipandsavor #wine4me #wineblogger #igwines #redwine #winereview #Alion #VegaSicilia

Dec 5, 2019

Peter Mertes 2015 Black Star Pfalz, Germany Peter Mertes founded his company in 1924 with a mission to make quality wine that is approachable to all, not just the upper class, as it was then. He invested in land along the Mosel, where he was from, with a focus on regional wines. The Pfalz (also know as Palatinate in English) is Germany's most prolific wine region, and is often a pit stop for tourists along the wine route. As such many Pfalz wines are sold locally from cellar doors. The Pfalz has a warm and dry climate due to Haardt mountains which cast a rain shadow on the Anbaugebeite. Making for wines that are fuller with more concentration. Loams are the prevalent soil type though there are also outcrops of chalk, loess sand, clay and sandstone. Medium bodied, plusly textured medium (+) alcohol, and medium (+) acidity is made from a blend of Dunkelfelder and Cabernet Mitos is fruit driven with medium (+) intensity of strawberries, currents, raspberries, plums, star anise and clove. #GermanWine #Wine #CorkDork #WineGeek #PfalzWine #WinesOfGermany #Winestagram #winesofinstagram #Dunkelfelded #CabernetMitos #PeterMertesWine #PfalzWine wines_of_germany

Dec 5, 2019

Утро за чашкой ☕️, вечер с бокалом 🍷 и с книгой по жизни 📖. ⠀ Прочтение «Винного сноба» далось не легко. Начала я год назад, когда мысль стать сомелье еще не сформировалась в голове. Первые главы меня привели просто в ужас: героиня вечно «поддатая», таскает тяжелые коробки, люди вокруг малоприятные.... и потом вызвало недоумение то, как она успеет за год подготовиться с нуля к столь сложному экзамену.... ⠀ Читала я, как говорят, «в час по чайной ложке» и даже не заметила, как сама превратилась в Бьянку. Подготовка и сдача WSET, Школа Русского вина, поездки по винодельням, карусель из выставок, дегустаций и презентаций. И вот через 12 месяцев я добралась до последней главы, а читать её не хочу. ⠀ Не хочу чтобы это заканчивалось, я требую продолжения! Пройдя свой пока еще не долгий винный путь я познакомилась со многими прекрасными людьми (снобов среди них слава богу меньшинство))), наполнилась новыми знаниями, приобрела кучу не свойственных мне рабочих навыков, приняла участие во множестве креативных проектах... нет, до последней главы мне еще далеко! Всё только начинается! ⠀ Самая приемлемая цена на книгу была у Озон, а уютный худи кофе/вино можно заказать у меня 🤗 ⠀ #кофе #вино #винныйсноб #читаем #скнигойпожизни #худи #sommlife #corkdork #уют #стильжизни #креативныйдизайн #одеждаподзаказ

It’s a rainy #winewednesday, so seems appropriate to share a rainy day wine adventure from the weekend. greghudson and I took heymarylou7 (my mom) to frogsleap on Saturday and had a wonderful time despite the rain. There was a cozy fire inside and a #cheese plate certainly never hurts things. Their #CabernetSauvignon 2012 and #Merlot 2017, both #Rutherford, were two of our favorites from this visit’s tasting. The rain also couldn’t keep us from strolling around their pretty grounds. It’s also worth noting that all of their grapes are #dryfarmed and #organic.

Dec 5, 2019

Did you know that the Netherlands has 180 commercial vineyards?! I didn’t! The Netherlands has a reach and deep history in wine and wine trade. The famous Dutch East India company was founded in 1602 and was the Amazon or Facebook if its day, with a wide reach and lots of power. One of the many items that was traded through ports such as Amsterdam was wine. In 1685 the French Huguenots fled to the Netherlands after the Edict of Fontainebleau, which ordered the destruction of Huguenot churches as well as other more influencing ways of encouraging Catholic conversion. Many of these refugees settled in Amsterdam, bringing their knowledge of the wine trade with them. The most commonly traded French wines were from Bergerac, Bordeaux and the Loire. For my next post I’ll be talking about how the Dutch East India company was a major influencer in founding the viniculture of an entire region. Any guesses on where?

Now I’m not usually a gin drinker ( #nohatersplease 😉)...but I had to try this Rosé gin! 🤔 . And yes it actually tasted like Rosé! With lovely strawberry notes 🍓 balanced with the gin botanicals. 😊 .

Dec 5, 2019

Was very reticent to post this meal, as it came on the evening right before the NYT piece was published about the restaurant’s sommelier, which rightfully sent shockwaves through the wine industry. I had been wanting to visit for the wine list and the ‘elevated’ comfort food. Both lived up to the billing. And the service was excellent. It was just so shocking and disappointing to learn more of the story the next day. Hopefully it is a wake-up call for many. Anyway, I will keep it brief and remember the nice evening we had, with delicious food and wine (some of which is pictured above), blissfully unaware of the story that would break in a few hours. . . . #theusualnyc #theusual #anthonycailan #sommelier #winenews #eeeeeats #eatingnyc #nycfoodie #nycdining #dineoutnyc #foodporn #instafood #foodstagram #beautifulcuisines #gastroart #f52grams #lefooding #domainelabet #pinotnoir #juragonnalikethis #heygro #grolleau #burger #prawns #dessert #winestagram #instawine #thewinepoor #corkdork #sommthingsyoushodknow

lowburnferry⠀ ⠀ Lowburn Ferry vineyard, located north of Cromwell on sheltered terraces under the Pisa Range, Central Otago. Their Home lock Pinot Noir is consistently among the finest expressions of this variety in the New World. In fact, the 2014 won Champion Wine in Show at the Air New Zealand Wine Awards 2016. Here, amongst those very vines, hosted by the CEO of Aotearoa NZ Fine Wine Estates Michael Henley and viticulturist Nick Paulin, we were treated to a vertical tasting of 5 different vintages of the Home Block which included the champion 2014. This wine has spicy herbal notes with lifted aromas of truffle, black cherry and cedar. The palate is full and rich with flavours of cooked rhubarb, wild hare and a subtle earthiness denoting some healthy tertiary development. Long and clean on the finish, the deliciousness lingering on and on.. One of those wines you never forget having tasted..🍇🍷🇳🇿 .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #lowburnferrywines #centralotago #pinotnoir #newworldwine #purenz #winegeek #corkdork #wineprofessional #altitudetours #luxurytravelnz #terriormatters #onsitewinenz

Tonight

Dec 5, 2019

Tonight's first selection! This is our favorite Belle Glos, Las Alturas. Bright ruby red with fresh, vibrant aromas of wild blackberry accented by rich floral notes. Perfectly balanced with bright acidity and a supple mouthfeel. Fine grained tannins provide an authentic textural distinction and structural depth. . . . #wine #winelife #winelover #winedrinkers #winetasting #winedrinking #vino #pinotnoir #drinkmorewine #foodandwine #wino #winesofinstagram #vinogram #instawine #wineandbeer #winenight #whatwearedrinking #vinolife #redwine #vinotinto #lovewine #winenerd #corks #belleglos #corkdork #acoupleofdrinks

Happy #winewednesday wine lovers! Now that the holiday season is upon us and cooler weather is here to stay, are you drinking more reds or whites? ✨⁣ ⠀⠀⁣ I feel like more people tend to reach for reds as the temperatures drop. I’m not a seasonal drinker and drink reds, whites, rosé and bubbles year round! You only live once 😉⁣ ⠀⠀⁣ Here I’m sipping on an Arvesiniadu from Marco’s family vineyard this vintage. This beautiful rare white variety from Sardinia has tantalizing acidity with complex aromas and flavors, including citrus, minerals, balsamic. Intense both on the nose and on the palate with a long, persistent finish. Big fan. Though I love me a rare variety!!✨⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ #sardiniawine #vinosardo #winelovers #winelover #youcansipwithus #wineblogger #wineblog #winetime #winetimes #winemob #wineclubbuzz #wineclub #italianwine #vinoitaliano #winetravel #winetasting #winemaking #winenight #wineenthusiast #winegeek #corkdork #vino #winestagram #instawine #instawinelovers #winelife #winelifestyle #winegirl #winegirls

Dec 4, 2019

Thank you, littlesliquors, for carrying such a delectable wine! Pineau d'Aunis can be a hard to grow (and therefore hard to find) varietal, which is a shame because it's oh-so-tasty. This red grape from the Loire in France has a lighter body that reminds me of Gamay, and while the flavors are definitely red fruit-driven, there's an extra kick of white pepper that brings Syrah to mind. This was a great bottle, and very affordable at around $14! . . . . . . . #tastingnotes #winetasting #redwine #pineaudaunis #oldworldwine #frenchwine #vindefrance #vinsdeloire #winewriter #explorewine #wine #wset #wsetglobal #womeninwine #wsetlevel3 #somm #winetasting #wineincolorado #affordablewine #corkdork

I’ll start off by saying this is not a comparison post. It’s a NY Cabernet Franc Appreciation Day post 🥰 #cabernetfrancday ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ 2017 lakewoodvineyards from FLX ( #influenced by wino_dino_ !)⁣⁣ I brought this on Thanksgiving and it was a hit.. a lovely bottle to drink in between dinner and dessert 😋 Light tannins, nice acidity, raspberry sauce, and some bell pepper notes. Long finish. 13% ABV. I would 100% buy this again at just under $20 at totalwine ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ 2017 raphaelwine from the North Fork of Long Island⁣ This Cab Franc is a little lighter with ripe strawberry and clay pot aromas. Definitely more herbal than spicy. I get subtle hints of tomato leaf and leather on the palate. A great food pairing wine. 12.3% ABV. Under $20 if you’re local. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Have you had NY Cab Franc? Have any favorites?

Dec 4, 2019

Tenuta Nuova means “new property;” a place where nobody has planted Sangiovese before, and the wine named as such is considered by some, myself included, to be the flagship of their winery. Produced from 100% Sangiovese grapes, the grapes undergo meticulous destemming and hand sorting prior to fermentation. Afterward spending no less than 36 months in oak followed by one year in the bottle before it is allowed to be sent out for consumption by those who seek one of the finest examples of Brunello around. Others must also think so as this is only the second wine that I have had that achieved the high honor of receiving TWO 100 Point Reviews! Breaking open, actually using the good ole Coravin to extend the pleasure received from this wine over a two-day non-consecutive period, the wine for a reasonably special occasion, I knew the wine would only heighten the focus and elevate the pleasure for the day. And it certainly did that! The wine itself is nothing less than elegant and substantive; opening with deep dark black/blue fruit that melds with a rustic, almost forest-like, quality lending minerality to the wine. The tannins are present but nearing a softness that leaves you with a subtleness that combines with the near-perfect acidity, bringing you closer to a finish that unlocks a spiciness that stays with you for an extended period of time, long enough so you can bask in its magnificence. You don’t need to be in a rush to open this wine, it has been masterfully crafted to allow many more years of aging to occur before you need to entertain that thought. Should you have multiple bottles on hand however, don’t be afraid to open one as this wine can add to your enjoyment now, just give it an hour or two of decant time. Though my “Don Juan” status is still in question, there should be none concerning this wine. While the 2010s are probably very hard to come by, newer vintages should be available and from the samples I have had, compare very favorably to 2010, so enjoy.

Dec 4, 2019

These were the wines I used to supplement the old Latour and Mouton I posted about a little while ago during a very special home-cooked dinner. / The champagnepehusimonet rosé Champagne was absolutely delightful and the Bret Brother’s 2014 La Soufrandière Climat ‘Les Quarts’ was out-of-this-world delicious white Burgundy. It had some much depth, freshness, directness, linearity and length, yet also a secondary sense of roundness and weight. Truly magical and a hit with all. It was the 2014 and thanks for the red dshoe2014. / I purchased the domainehuet Clos du Bourg Moeulleux 2009 Première Trie upon release about 10 years ago and it is still a baby. Probably way to young to have opened but still splendid as a liquid gold dessert. I’ll wait another decade before broaching again. . . . #champagne #rosechampagne #pehusimonet #facenord #bretbrothers #lasoufrandiere #pouillyvinzelles #climatlesquarts #lesquarts #chardonnay #watchmedrinkdrinkmychardonnaynay #whiteburgundy #bourgogneblanc #huet #domainehuet #closdubourg #moelleux #premieretrie #cheninblanc #chenincheninchenin #thewinrpoor #corkdork #instawine #winestagram #winelovers #catsandcorks
