I have been rather lazy lately about posting TNs. Will rectify that now.
Hope Chardonnay 2003 Hunter Valley: Medium-yellow-gold color. Spice, sweet vanilla and charred wood on the nose. Quite sweet and rather flat, moderate acidity, overripe peaches, pear and lemon. This bottle was sweeter and more simple than I recall previous bottles being.
La Vielle Ferme 2004 Cotes du Ventoux: From the Perrin brothers. A blend of Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre and Cinsault. Good cherry color in the glass. Tangy acidity, sweet cherry fruit, some spices, but not much else. Pleasant but, as with the wine above, previous bottles have been much more enjoyable and have offered more complexity.
Les Grés XL Viognier 2004 Vin de Pays D'oc: From Les Vignerons de Puisserguier. Medium-yellow color. Peachy nose. Medium-weight, oily, peaches, very intense citric bitterness, floral, spicy, intense grapefruit rind bitterness on the end. After a while the intensity of the fruit became a bit wearing. Again, this bottle wasn't as good as previous ones were.
Miguel Torres "Santa Digna" Sauvignon Blanc 2004: From Chile's Central Valley. Lime, flowers, spice, pine resin and sea salt on the nose. Zingy and crisp in the mouth, lemon-lime, some veggy notes, peppery, grapefruit, very clean with a mouthwatering finish. Quite rich and flavourful.
