Twitter Wine Reviews - December 2009

Another little social experiment. Jot down every bottle of wine I taste with a short comment and rating. The theory is, search my Twitter archives by wine brand for a quick lookup history of what I like and don't like. Theoretically. Of course, I'm also hoping this becomes a little social trend. Doesn't everybody?

Enjoy!

My Wine Review List for December 2009:

2007 Mont Rochelle Reserve Sauvignon Blanc. Apples and grass. Quite soft on the tongue. Favourable! 7/10 #Wine

1996 Meerlust Rubicon. So much of plum - just a downright great wine. 8/10. #Wine

Allesverloren Cabernet Sauvignon. A bit mysterious for the unrefined palette but excellent nonetheless. 7/10. #Wine

Kanonkop Kadette 2008. Cherry chocolate. Bit warm in this heat wave but that's fixable. 7/10. #Wine

2009 Graham Beck Waterside Unoaked Chardonnay. Light and fluffy like a good pancake. With grass. 8/…

My Wine Review List for November 2009:

The Cloof. Cellar Blend 2008. Quirky, like its label: We'd drink it, but 27000 bottles is a lot. 6/10. #wine

Haute Cabriere Chardonnay Pinot Noir 2009. Not as remarkable as I was expecting. 5/10. #wine

Waterford Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2004. Needed the aerator. A lot. But turned pleasant and plummy. 6/10. #wine

Rupert and Rothschild Classique 2007 Vintage. Mulberry aroma, cherry smooth taste. All zung, no zing - good thing. 7/10. #wine

Vergelegen Cabernet Sauvignon 2005. Slightly chilled, goes with the botanical garden setting. Moreish. 6/10. #wine
