Country: South Africa Vintage: 2010
Grape Variety: Chenin Blanc
The color of this wine was light and transparent. It was thin, light yellow and haylike. The smell was apples, peaches and pineapple. I couldn’t get any type of notes for this wine but maybe apples as an after taste. This can be paired with shrimp.
Country: New Zealand Vintage: 2010
Grape Variety: Sauvignon Blanc
The color of this wine was pale yellow with hints of green. I really liked the smell of this wine. It was pineapple and grapefruit. I thought it would be pretty fruity but instead it tasted sour with high acidity but I did taste the grapefruit and pineapple. This can be paired with steam tilapia with spicy vegetable sauce. Didn’t really like it.

Region: Barossa Valley Vintage
Name: Earth Works
Grape Variety: Shiraz
Finally all these weeks of tasting wine and I finally find something that I really really like. How exciting. I would definitely buy this wine. The color was purple red and opaque. The smell was dry prunes, raisins, tobacco, anise, cinnamon, it was intense and full bodied. The taste was more like cherries, anise, black peppers and cinnamon. So good. This can be paired with steak, stew, pasta with spicy red sauce. Australian shiraz is good.
