Five Bottles: A New Old Way to Evaluate Wine - Palate Press

Five Bottles: A New Old Way to Evaluate Wine - Palate Press | Wine in the World | Scoop.it
Wine evaluation often rests on a mere sip, but wine writing would become far more vital if writers tasted the way people do—as part of real life.

David Swaddle's insight:

Meg's right. Most of us end up enjoying our wine with food, so why isn't it reviewed and tasted with food?

James Halliday's Top 100 wines of 2012

James Halliday's Top 100 wines of 2012 | Wine in the World | Scoop.it

James Halliday's Top 100 wines of 2012 is now available for free on his website. Take a look!

 

I definitely agree with a few of his choices:

 

Chateau Francois Pokolbin Semillon 2006 is a bargain and made by a lovely man.

 

Tahbilk Marsanne 2012 is from a much underratted grape that can flourish in many Australian environments. It's probably a bargain because most Aussies aren't that adventurous at trying different grapes.

 

Nepenthe Adelaide Hills Shiraz 2010 makes his list too and it's a great cooler climate Shiraz. It's a bit more refined and interesting than lots of the cheap sun-baked examples.

 

The Mike Press Single Vineyard Adelaide Hills Merlot intrigues me. I haven't actually tried this yet, but it has been recommended by a couple of people

 

I haven't tried that many of the wines over $20 yet, but now I've got a list to work from!

 

The Penfolds Yattarna Chardonnay 2009 is great and on it's way to becoming the benchmark for Aussie Chardies. Tahbilk 1927 Vines Marsanne 2003 is worth the $35 or so it commands and has a bit of extra richness that the younger wines don't have.

 

More research and development required for me, I think.

David Swaddle's insight:

Is scoreflation killing wine ratings? Were they any use anyway? Read @GregoryDalPiaz at Snooth on this.
