Wijnhoeve Runa
Our rating: 8.5/10
Both in the nose and in the mouth, we experience a combination of primary and secondary aromas. With flavors of cranberries and strawberries, we taste red fruits and dried fruits in combination with rustic flavors of leather, stable and tobacco. The panel was impressed! The wine reminded us of Sangiovese and has a particularly good price/quality ratio. Compliments to the winemaker!

De Maronesse
Our rating: 7.5/10
A strong and well-bodied red wine with aromas and flavors of blackcurrant, blackberry, eucalyptus, pine, cedarwood, olives, cloves and red bush tea. Fruity and more animal and herbaceous flavours together form a broad palate. A good and well-made wine, recommended to combine with steak, cheese or ‘melanzane alla parmigiana’.

St. Martinus
Our rating: 8.5/10
A very aromatic wine with aromas of forest fruits and oaky and herbaceous characteristics. We taste a very interesting and broad flavor palate with specified flavors of blackcurrant, jammy fruits, prunes, figs, blackberries, juniper, bay leaves and a hint of cinnamon. The wine has a pleasant, long ending. The tasting panel was completely caught off guard. They couldn’t believe they were really tasting a Dutch wine, and not a Zinfandel from Barossa. Is this really Dutch wine? Yes it is! Well done and well made!

Wijngoed Fromberg
Our rating: 8/10
A no-nonsense, not too complex wine with a lot of fruitiness. The wine has a fruity palate of cranberries, red cherries, strawberries, roses and violets. Drink it a bit chilled, it will improve the fruitiness of the wine.

Hoeve Nekum
Our rating: 8/10
The wine shows a nice balance between fruit and freshness. It has red fruits, cedarwood and herbaceous scents in the nose. The wine has a nice, broad flavor palate of red fruits and developing aroma characteristics like cedar and animal tones. We taste strawberries, cherries, forest fruit, cedar, liquorice, herbs, and pine. The alcohol can be a bit pronounced in the flavor palate. We recommend to cool the wine a bit upfront, as this will improve the taste.

Domein Holset
Our rating: 8/10
Kleine Prins (Dutch for ‘Little Prince’) is a quite aromatic wine with scents of yellow fruits, vegetables and herbs. We also taste a lot of yellow, ripe fruit in the flavor palate, which is combined with an elegant minerality. The wine is nicely balanced and has a very delicate mousse.
