Brad's Wine Subscription Tasting Notes - November 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."

November 2022 Free Gift . Neptune Gold Barbados Rum
Neptune Rum Gold is a blend of eight, five and three year old Bourbon barrel aged rums from Barbados. Exceptionally smooth expressing nuances of apricot, banana, and coconut overlaid with soft hints of honey and vanilla. Excellent on ice as a digestif or in cocktails.


Domaine Paul Mas Esprit De Grassette Blanceur 2021 . France
A wonderful fresh blend of Terret Blanc, Grenache Blanc, Vermentino and Ugni Blanc. This gold-coloured wine from the Languedoc has a citrus freshness accompanied by good acidity, an easy drinking wine.

Genus Blanco Jumilla 2021 . Spain
Organic and vegan – this zesty white is produced from Airn grapes harvested in a little earlier than usual to hold freshness. This results in a wine balanced in body and colour, pale yellow clean and bright. With aromas of banana and apple, on the palate it is light, smooth, velvety, fresh and pleasant to drink.

Ruffoni PRIME 48 Pinot Grigio Delle Venezie 2019 DOC . Italy
PRIME48 is beautifully elegant with a delicate balanced aroma full of floral and fruity notes. The wine hosts a fresh, powerful taste and pale yellow colour. Delicious as an aperitif, yet ideal for accompanying raw and cooked fish, sushi or sashimi and fresh white cheeses.


Tagua Tagua 2021 Rosé . Chile
Pale pink with orange tones. Light aromas of wild flowers and herbs that combine in the mouth with raspberries and fresh strawberries. A fresh wine ideal for salads and seafood, with a balanced acidity and a balanced finish.


Domaine Paul Mas Esprit de Grassette Rouge 2020 . France
Grenache Noir, Merlot, Syrah and Carignan. Garnet red in colour with purple tint. Complex aromas of plum, raspberry and spiciness. On the palate, smooth red fruit characters, good balance and in the aftertaste there is a hint of liquorice. Excellent with red meat dishes, hearty pastas and aged cheese.

Gemina Cuvée Seleccion 2019 . Spain
This is a fruity and full-bodied wine that presents a deep aroma of ripe cherry and oak on the nose. There is a slight toasty character, and spicy notes that lead to a long and lingering finish. This is a perfect wine with casseroles and grilled meat dishes, and fits very well with dark chocolate.

Ruffoni Merlot of Centelan Veneto IGP 2019 . Italy
This fantastic 100% Merlot of Centelan has a lingering flavour, and a balanced, harmonic structure. It’s a dry, dark red wine full of exceptional character. You’ll find it an excellent marriage with barbecued red meats, aged cheese and autumnal game dishes.
