Palate Press Wine of the Week – 2009 Lynmar Pinot Noir Rosé

Vibrant orange/pink hued salmon color. A lightly fragrant nose of strawberry, raspberry and hint of crisp Jolly Rancher watermelon. Don’t let the flavor descriptors fool you, this is a wonderfully dry rosé with no sweetness. Nice weight in mouth for a rose, balanced with acidity that will pair well with many foods. Hint of that beloved Pinot noir silkiness. Watermelon and cherry mid-palette. Pleasant finish. Considering the price and quality of Lynmar Estates wine, this is an excellent Price to Quality Ratio. Very Good, Strongly Recommend. Read the full review here on Simple Hedonisms.

Palate Press Wine of the Week- Lions Drift Pinotage

Clear, bright ruby red with purple. Clean nose with fresh strawberry, blueberry, black cherry, and licorice. Dry, medium tannin, medium-full body, medium alcohol and acidity; cooked raspberries and blueberries, cherry, strawberry. A long finish that’s like blueberry pie with cinnamon. This is honestly one of the better South African wines I’ve had—I love trying new ones, though many of them come across lacking something. This totally makes me happy that I’ve kept trying. I would definitely drink this again!
