Combining the big three Rhone grapes should never produce simple wine. This is sweet and easy but has a lot going on....

medium-bodied, light and fruity, lively acidity with a minty, spicy, lean plum flavour (86)

Is Australia considered new world? No? Well their wine sure is.

Yet another "cleverly" named wine from D'arenberg, this Rhone blend is light, sweet, fruity and ... well, boring.

Raspberry, strawberry and a touch of candy apple. All a bit too modern for my palate. I missed the earthy, savory dimension found in it's Rhone counterparts.

Nothing offensive here, just a simple sipper aiming to please.
