El Placer
Our rating: 7.5/10
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
Our rating: 7.5/10
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
Our rating: 8/10
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
Our rating: 6.5/10
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.

Achterhoekse Oorsprong (A.W.B.)
Our rating: 7/10
This wine is surprising and interesting with beautiful soft acids! It turns out to be quite different than expected by smelling it. It has a broad aroma palate with primary, secondary and tertiary aroma characteristics. In the mouth, we have citrus fruit and yellow apples. The wine has a pleasant minerality. This is a real food wine. Combine it with chicken with lemon, or grilled sardines.

Maronesse
Our rating: 6.5/10
A well-made, however not very exciting and rather one-dimensional white wine. In the nose yellow fruits and citrus, unripe galia melon and some hints of vegetables and white pepper. In the mouth, we have lemon, gooseberries, and a clear bitterness, supplemented with some hints of green vegetables, herbs, and white nuts.
Nice to combine with a fresh salad or black olives.
