Wine Entry : Selaks East Coast Ice Wine 2006 (New Zealand)

Wow! How time flies! This is my 200th blog entry for WineDragon and I promise it will keep growing. For this occasion, I have a special wine that was savoured in New Zealand and at a very affordable NZ 13 dollars.

Smell : Flora-rose, lemon and orange peel scents

Taste : Nougat-orange marmalade, candy sweetness. Smooth on the palate.

After taste : Pleasant, sweet-sour finish with a touch of bitter peel.

Wine Entry : Chateau Haut Pick Sauternes 2004 (French)

Got this bottle at the Carrefour wine fair, felt it was a steal for a 750ml bottle at a reasonable price of $29 only. However, comparing it with the rest of the classified growths of Sauternes, it is still enjoyable to drink but pales in intensity and flavour.
Smell : Fruit ripen citrus lemon, some coying honey

Taste : Almost like a light orange-lemon juice. Touch of sweetness, lower viscosity than a "normal" sauternes, but nonetheless enjoyable.

After-Taste : Missing the syrup-like thickness. Qiuck fast finish.
