Tim and I recently had a wine tasting at Muss & Turner's in Smyrna, GA on February 8, 2011. We tasted 5 wines: 3 white and 2 red.
Interesting facts: no oak and that all wines are processed in steel. Originally, New Zealand wines were a popular Japanese import. Their mass production took place in the 1970's. All wines are "screw-capped" and cannot be corked.
Mohua Sauvgnon Blanc '09: Hints of Grapefruit and pineapple. Very Summery
Jules Taylor Pinot Gris '08: Very flat tasting, dull. Grassy in flavor. No notes of any particular taste-not recommended
Peregrine Chardonnay '08: Buttery notes, with cantaloupe and cashews
**Mudhouse Otago Pinot Noir '08: Nice and light. Peppery. Fairly balanced, not as deep as a Calipino
Villa Maria Cabernet Sauvigion/Merlot '08: This is an un-oaked cab! Deep, dark cherry. Coats the side of the glass. Not as much fruit flavor. Smelled fruitful, but not much depth in flavor.
Tim and I recommend the Mudhouse Pinot Noir!
