Yard Dog '05

Country: Australia
Winemaker: Redheads Studio
Thoughts: This was a gift from my very cool brother-in-law Mark and his wife Maya at Christmastime. Turns out it's a blended with white with three ingredients, including chardonnay and gewurztraminer. Given my past positive experiences with blends (like Evolution), I was pretty excited and it didn't disappoint. The nose was light with hints of melon and earthiness. The citrus (and particularly the orange) really came through in the taste; it went down smooth and moderately dry with a crisp finish. Really, it's just a pretty decent sipping wine. And when you get down to it, what more do you really want?
Ingredients: Chardonnay (77 percent), semillon (14) and gewurztraminer (9)
Do-over? Why not?
Final Grade: B

Glad you liked it. I can't wait to find a La Barrone and give it a shot!
