Vino Intrepido Dulcet Tones Dolcetto 2021


A bundle of happiness awaiting a big slab of lasagne.  A full glass with a casual meal or a lazy night in front of the television watching some trashy reality program is all that is required.

Nomads Garden Dolcetto 2018

Slinky stuff. There's some versatility about this Dolcetto too. A little chill in the fridge adds another dimension. Great stuff.

Konpira Maru Mt Midoriyama Pet Nat 2019

The crew at Konpira Maru call this the Dame Judy Dench of sparkling. And if you were to pop your Pet Nat cherry, I reckon this is a good place to start.

Wangolina Rosé 2019

With the Rosé market swamped with pale salmon Provencal style wines because, "That's what the consumer wants," it's refreshing to see a bright reddish splash of Rosé in the glass.

Heartland Wines Foreign Correspondent Dolcetto Lagrein 2018

A fun wine with an intriguing label - exposing flavour and truth it reads. Dolcetto and Lagrein seeing no oak. Hello Saturday BBQ!

Yelland & Papps Sete Di Vino 2013

Be sure to arm yourself with pizza or pasta and you'll be smiling all the way with this.

A tidy little drop which complements food nicely. A blend of Barbera, Lagrein and Dolcetto contributing 36/34/30 percent respectively.

Take a whiff and swim in aromas of sweet mulberry and violets. The Lagrein component really adds value to the blend via sour cherries and plums and draws out the length.

Quite savoury with a little dusting of earth, it's not hard to keep washing back mouthfuls of food.

Magpie Estate The Mixed Thing 2012

An interesting mix of the lesser known varieties grown in the Barossa. A medley of Cinsault, Sangiovese, Dolcetto, Tannat and Ruby Cabernet. The quantities are unknown nor do I care too much simply because this is just a great little drop.

Why? I get a sense my tongue is a target at the rifle range with shots of flavour hitting randomly all over yet it settles to a smooth and long finish. So much going on and I like it.

Dark cherries, and there are lots of them! Plums, cranberry as well as some blueberries.

A wine not to think too much about. Just to rip the cap off and enjoy it with friends. This certainly wouldn't be out of place at a Sunday barbeque. A bargain too at $20.

The back label suggests can be served with a slight chill. I gave this a shot...yum!

Who: Magpie Estate
What: Cinsault, Sangiovese, Dolcetto, Tannat & Ruby Cabernet (13.5% alc)

Yelland & Papps Sete Di Vino 2012

Well here's a blend you won't run into often and there is certainly plenty going on. The blend consists of 29% Lagrein, 27% Dolcetto, 24% Barbera and 20% Primitivo.

Stewed fruit, boot polish, earth, sarsparella even a slight dried flower perfume.

The palate is soft and then unleashes an abrasive side. Gutsy then delicate. Faint sweetness then drying. Lots going on.

I found it quite intriguing as there was plenty to offer. Initially only a blend of Lagrein, Dolcetto and Barbera, the Primitivo was thrown in to add some guts and X factor. Mission accomplished.

Decant to refresh the wine and enjoy.
