Goats Do Roam Red Wine 2020

At a Glance
Overall deep purple, plums, blackcurrant, black cherry, anise
Notes The first word that popped in to my head when I tasted this wine was “inoffensive”. It’s a Goldilocks wine. Not too sweet, not too dry, not too anything. This is in no way an insult. A great pick when you don’t know what your guests like or what to pair with dinner. The name is likely a play on the French Côtes du Rône – cute.
Sweetness extra dry – 4 g/L
Food lamb, roast chicken, shawarma
Price $13.95

Inniskillin Late Harvest Riesling 2006

Is this late harvest Riesling Fashionably Late? Lets see, late harvest usually means it’s going to be a bit sweeter so it gets a check mark there. It has a classic honey finish that we like (check mark there) and it has a nice bright straw colour with hints of floral and fruity notes on the finish. So yes, wine too, can be Fashionably Late.
Tip: chill a bottle of this for white drinkers who prefer a sweeter wine
