Brad's Wine Subscription Tasting Notes - February 2023

”I have been inspired to work with small, family-owned wineries because in my experience, they produce the best value wines that you can find. These wines are hand-crafted - they have a story about where they are from and how they are made - and it is these wines that I send out every month to our subscribers, wines with beautiful details that I enjoy sharing with people."

Baglio Baiata Alagna 2021 Inzolia . Sicily, Italy
Made from 100% Inzolia grapes. A beautifully produced wine with delicate aromas that have both herbaceous fragrances and scents of fresh summer flowers, white peach and citrus. Fantastic with aperitivo snacks or just alone.

Woodlands Selection 2021 Chardonnay . South East Australia
Enticing pale straw in colour, the sweet and creamy bouquet is fragrant with honey, herbs and citrus with notes of toasty vanilla. It possesses a lovely, well-balanced depth of soft, creamy, melon fruit and toasted oak, and comes to a sumptuous conclusion with a long, dry finish. This wine can be cellared for up to three years. Try this one with chargrilled seafood.


Artevin Rosé . Rioja, Spain

Vivid, pale pink. Floral, stone fruit and fresh on the nose, with scents of wild strawberry, raspberry, and redcurrant. Spicy and lively, the red fruit flavours show good intensity and excellent clarity. Expands and gains power through the finish, with bright acids providing a firm, bright finish.


Real de a8 2021 Tinto . Rioja, Spain
100% Tempranillo and brilliant ruby colour. Lively aromas and flavours of juicy red fruits and peppery spices, plus a sweet hint of mocha. Subtle tannins give shape to a tangy, persistent finish with notes of raspberries.

Baglio Baiata Alagna 2021 Syrah . Sicily, Italy
This intense and fruity Shiraz has a fantastic spice backbone and shows fragrances of black pepper, plums and blackberries. Perfect just on its own, this wine also pairs well with beef and lamb, fantastic!

Woodlands Selection 2019 Shiraz Cabernet . South East Australia
This medium red coloured wine exudes aromas of dry spice, leather, and earthy mineral aromas. On the palate the wine has a good helping of soft redcurrant flavours balanced by smooth tannins and spicy oak at the finish. Serve with stir fried chicken and beef dishes.
