Wine Hub : Dempsey Hill Visit 09 Oct 2007 (Part III)

Third and final part of the review of the new Dempsey Hill area.
The group of us, (comprising of Kong, Jasmine, Mervin and Peter) finally settled on Wine Network for dinner and drinks.

Kong and Jasmine frequent the place very often and so know the service staff extremely well. We had a white wine from New Zealand first followed by a red from South Africa. I apologise for the poor quality pics because the lighting in the restaurant was not the most conducive for photo taking

La Reserve Chadonnay 2002

Notes from the menu : The gold label medal winning style of the La Reserve has been maintained in this luscious chardonnay exhibiting aromas of melon and peach. Matured in new French oak for 12 months, the wine opens out to an elegant well balanced palate with a lingering and classical finish. Alcohol content 14%.

Own tasting notes : Nice peach aromas, dominated by cool climate green fruits, quite sharp acidity at the end. Would go exceedingly well with a grilled fish fillet or crisp salad.

Saxenburg Private Collection Shiraz 2003 Stellenbosch

Own tasting notes : Intriguing fruity scents with an upfront palate of ripened fruits. A nice mellow middle and a relatively quick finish. A touch of spice and pepper, but not predominating. A nice accompaniment for dinner.
