Stella Organics Star Catcher Shiraz (Episode 194 Part 1)

In this episode, we taste Shiraz wine from South Africa.

In this, the first part of the episode, we taste an organic Shiraz, the Stella Organics Star Catcher.

Grown on the semi-arid landscape of the Western Cape the grapes are subjected to the hot midday sun followed by chilly nights helping to give the wine it’s taste profile.

The wine has a little purple in it’s colour.

On the nose, it smells of Cherries and John M detected some blackcurrant.

On the taste, the blackcurrant was not so obvious but the cherry was still very much there.

John M felt the wine was slightly light which made it “juicy” but not a wine to sit down to and enjoy, more of a wine to enjoy while chatting to friends.

Ashdown Rosé Wine (Episode 192 – Part 3)

This wine is a great salmon colour, on the nose or if you like, it has a smell of strawberries and cream!
It tastes of strawberries, but John M felt the wine does not have much length or put another way the taste does not last for very long.

3 Choirs Dry White in a Can (Episode 190 – Part 2)

In the second part of this episode, we taste a can of their Dry White wine.

On the nose, the wine smells similar to Sauvignon blanc, with John M detecting pears and pear drops.

When drinking it had pineapple/tropical fruits flavours or notes as they would say in the wine world.

It was very smooth and round such great quality for wine in a can – the perfect drink when you are travelling.

We interview Sara and Becky about their exciting new venture of promoting and selling English and Welsh wine online.

Sara and Becky, explain what their current careers are and how they came up with the idea of setting up this new company.

Becky explains the difference between British Wine and English and Welsh wine.

We discuss the flexibility of their new offering including not having to buy a case of each wine that you fancy trying.

The site will also guide you through the many grapes used in England and Wales for winemaking. Names you are probably not familiar with. The site will allow you to determine which wines you may warm to based on the type of wine you currently drink.

19 Crimes Red Wine (Episode 187)

We have the great pleasure and privilege of tasting a bottle of 19 Crimes Red wine from South East Australia, with a very special guest – Anabelle McVine from the YouTube Channel WineScribble.

John L had first tried this in a restaurant in the United States where it cost considerably more than the price he was able to buy it for in the UK from a discount store – BM.

The wine is aged in a rum barrel to help give it it’s unique taste profile.

As experienced red wine drinkers both John M and Annabelle thought the taste profile was not quite complex enough for their personal tastes. They both felt. however, that if you were beginning your red wine journey this would be an excellent bottle to try.

Tasting 3 Choirs Wines (Episode 181 Part 2)

This episode follows John L’s visit to the Three Choirs Vineyard. Martin Fowkes, the Winemaking Director, kindly gave us some samples for John M to try back in the cellar.

The first wine we taste is their Cuvee.

Their Cuvee is in fact only £16.99, not the £20 that was quoted in the video and can be purchased via this link:- https://www.three-choirs-vineyards.co.uk/product/classic-cuvee-n-v/

This was a great tasting sparkling wine without the acidity people often associate with sparkling wine including Champagne. This Cuvee seemed incredible value as it deserved to be respected and enjoyed rather than just “necked”.

The next wine was 3 Choirs White Wine made from the Bacchus grape, whilst John M was slightly disappointed in the amount length, but John L really really enjoyed it. It was similar to Sauvignon Blanc, but once again had none of the acidity of Sauvignon Blanc which makes it ideal for those of you that like Sauvignon Blanc but do not like the acidity of this grape.

The final we taste is the 3 Choirs Vineyards Red Wine. This wine is ideal in our opinion for those people that are looking to move on from just drinking white to also wanting to drink red. the tannins are very light and the wine is very fruity. It’s nose (bouquet) is very similar to the Gamay grape which is used to make Beaujolais.


These wines are available directly from the Three Choirs website the address for which is https://www.three-choirs-vineyards.co.uk/
