Hof van Twente
4/5
This blend of Regent, Pinotin and Lemberger (Blaufränkisch) is nicely balanced and has an attractive and broad aroma palate with fruity, floral, earthy and herbaceous characteristics. Lots of concentrated fruit and slightly sweet in its taste. Roses, jammy forest fruits, a pepper and light tones of oak.

Achterhoekse Oorsprong
4/5
A wine with a combination of fruity and savory notes in both the nose and the mouth. Nice to combine with grilled aubergine, lamb stew or grilled meat.
A little aging will make the wine a bit better and softer. Not unimportant: a good price-quality ratio!

El Placer
4/5
A very juicy glass of red wine! In the nose forest fruits, blackcurrants enriched with scents of leather, salmiac and 99% bitter chocolate. The taste of salmiac is quite dominant. In addition, a lot of black fruit, 99% bitter chocolate, pipe tobacco and spicy herbs. Nicely balanced with a pleasant ending. Good to combine with roast lamb chops.

Domaine d’Heerstaayen
4/5
The wine has a somewhat typical yeast odor that is reminiscent of wine that has not yet finished fermentation. In the nose little fruit with a vegetal character, but in the mouth the wine is very fruity; lots of yellow fruit, a small red berry and a delicate mousse. A nice aperitif.

St Martinus & Domein Holset
4/5
The Gris de Villare is a beautiful, exciting and well made white wine with 6 months aging in French oak. The sweet fruit drifts out of the glass and is nicely integrated with soft scents of wood aging. Unfortunately, the nose fades a bit after being open for a while. But to make up for that, a delicious full taste with flowers, hints of wood ripening and lots of sweet fruit, which is nicely balanced with the acids, quickly follows..

‘t Biezenhof
3.5/5
The wine shows a fairly big difference between a broad aroma palate and a rather one-dimensional taste palate. The nose is quite aromatic but has a somewhat green character with characteristics of unripe fruit, vegetables and herbs. The taste is younger, more sour and quite bitter with a drying effect in the back of the throat due to the fairly hard acids. This ensures that the wood is pushed back, which is unfortunate because the wood is well-integrated. All in all, a well-made wine in itself, not a wine that you easily drink away.
Wine year 2019 is no longer available.
