Brad's Wine Subscription Tasting Notes - May 2022

”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."

May 2022 Free Gift . Eden Mill Love Gin
You gonna love this! Using rose petal and hibiscus botanicals, this light blush pink gin brings together an outstanding blend of exotic fruits. The gin is a pale pink colour when poured and when diluted, the Love Gin shows sweet vanilla and floral notes. The nose offers fragrant and floral rose petal aromas with sweet berry notes.


Tagua Unoaked 2021 Chardonnay . Central Valley, Chile

Fresh and full of character, this Chardonnay is produced in stainless steel tanks and retains lots of citrus and malic characters – golden yellow in colour, with aromas of tropical fruits like pineapple and mango and green apple. Soft on the palate, this is excellent with creamy dishes, grilled salmon and pork or chicken.

Dório 2020 Malvar . Madrid, Spain
A fragrant bouquet. Fleshy, focused and dry on the palate, offering incisive orange pith and green apple flavours and a repeating gingery quality. Closes taut, stony and long, with a suave floral nuance lingering. Offers impressive clarity and vivacity with lovely soft lingering characters on the palate. Perfect as an aperitif wine.

Little Eden 2020 Chardonnay . South Eastern Australia
This rich Chardonnay has a bright straw colour with a green hue. Strong fresh brioche aromas are supported by citrus blossom and nectarine varietal characters. Crisp in the mouth with tropical fruit flavours supported by oak-derived charry characters. A long and elegant finish and perfect with creamy seafood, cheeses and light meat dishes.


Índole 2021 Tempranillo . Comunidad Valenciana, Spain
An organic, easy-going, fruity, elegant and crispy wine elaborated mainly from indigenous grape varietals. This rosé has splendid aromatic intensity with notes of sweet berries, juicy strawberry and an elegant floral touch. It is refreshing and well balanced, causing a real feast of sensations. Drink with sunshine!


Dório Garnacha 2020 Cepas Viejas . Madrid, Spain
Ruby red, clean and bright with aromas of freshly produced plum jam. This wine is very approachable on the palate with soft, silky tannins, excellent with cold-cuts and cheese or with rice dishes, vegetables and light meat.

Tagua 2020 Carmenere . Central Valley, Chile
Intense ruby red colour, this wine has soft floral aromas and light herbal tones with red fruits, chocolate and vanilla on the palate. The wine has delicate but firm tannins with a medium length finish that marries perfectly with Asian cuisine and meals that include meat and spice. A lovely and savoury wine for special dinners.

Famiglia Berta 2019 Barbera d’Asti Belmon . Asti, Italy
100% Barbera from the beautiful cool-climate hills of Asti. The wine has a lovely violet and spice fragrance with notes of cherry and chocolate on the palate. Excellent acidity makes this a wonderful wine for pairing with meat ravioli, chicken, fowl and all red meats, game, stews and medium-mature cheeses. What a beauty!
