Pfeiffer’s Winery

April 28, 2010


The first of our orders was placed, and some tasty wines arrived.  More on our original visit can be found here.  The wines, in the suggested order of drinking:

  • 2 x 2009 Reisling – very smooth, very nice reisling.  It’s probably a good place to start if you aren’t big on this variety as it’s not too acidic.
  • 2 x 2009 ‘Carlyle’ Chardonnay Marsanne
  • 2 x 2009 ‘ Ensemble’ Rose
  • 2 x 2008 Shiraz – We were asked to age this a bit, if we had the willpower.  We did not 🙂
  • 1 x 2005 ‘Christopher’s’ VP – Excellent!
  • 1 x NV Classic Topaque
  • 1 x NV Muscat
  • 1 x ‘Seriously Pink’

Which makes a neat dozen.  They didn’t have any of the Gamay unfortunately, but thankfully the rose turned out to be quite nice.  Sweet, but not too sweet.  You can definitely taste the red grapes that go into it.

This ‘Seriously Pink’ thing should be interesting – the label says we should try it in cocktails or in an apertif, so we’ll see.

So yeah, if you’re ever nearby Rutherglen, pop in and visit.
