I like their Reds and this Sauvignon was a first – crisp and clean.

Thomond Reserve, Sauvignon Blanc, 2009

More stock dumping by wineonline.ie in their recent pot luck sale.

A 7 year old Signature Sauvignon Blanc, signed by some Munster Legends. I wonder if they knew what they were signing.

Like Munster Rugby, this wine has past it’s best. Hopefully Johan Erasmus’ recent appointment will restore Munster’s reputation, sadly it won’t help this stale liquid that tastes as if it was made from grapes grown on the Fields of Athenry.

Vouvray, 2011, Monmousseau

Memories of Sussey Street from the Eighties when Vouvray was last fashionable. Flabby with a hint of liquorice, quite sweet.

Another so so from the wineonline.ie pot luck sale.

I guess we should be drinking this fresher rather than 5 years later.
