Domein Hof te Dieren
Our rating: 7/10
A very special, very remarkable wine, with a lot to discover in both aroma and taste. Put your expectations aside for this wine and be ready for a totally different palate! we recommend to open the wine long in advance. When opened, the wine has an overwhelming animalistic smell, but that fades into the background after some time. It will then show additional aromas of cherries, raisins, prunes, leather, eucalyptus and pine. We taste an interesting palate of perfume, cherries, cherry liquor, mocha and a strong bitterness. It is a good and well-made liquor wine.

Wijngoed Wilgenhorst
Our rating: 7.5/10
The wine is quite expressive in both nose and mouth with pronounced aromas of ripe yellow fruit, tropical fruit and stone fruit. In the mouth, combined with hints of citrus flavors. It is a sweet wine, but a bit too light to be considered a ‘typical’ dessert wine. The wine is good and well made, with a nice balance between acidity and sweetness. The wine combines nicely with apple pie or fresh fruit, for example.

Ludique
Our rating: 7/10
While the wine has a very modest and greenish nose, there is an expressive taste of ripe and tropical fruits. The wine has a noticeable and elegant ‘gin-tonic’ bitterness and a little tingling on the tongue. It is a sweet wine, but not a typical dessert wine – it is a bit too light for that. The wine is good and well made and combines nicely with ice-cream, fruit and apple pie.

Domein Aldenborgh
Our rating: 8/10
This wine has had one week of skin contact, which gives it a different character than regular pinot gris wines. It is more exciting, more complex and shows a different aroma palate. We smell melon, fresh sauerkraut, asparagus, flint and wet pebbles. The wine has flavors of lemon, apple, pear, gooseberry, flint, a pinch of white pepper, basil, and a hint of bitterness. A very interesting wine!

Our rating: 7.5/10
With a nose of yellow and tropical fruits, combined with some vegetal tones the Pinot Gris of Aldenborgh doesn’t have an overwhelming nose, but the taste is full and rich in flavors! We taste a lot of ripened and tropical fruits and some minerality and citrus that give the wine with a nice freshness. In addition, we taste some buttery flavors and a bit of saltiness at the end. A nicely made wine with a lot to discover.

Domein Aldenborgh
Our rating: 7.5/10
This wine of the uncommon grape Satin Noir offers a remarkable, pronounced aroma-intensity and a very extensive aroma palate. We smell forest fruit, dried red fruits, cedarwood, hay and herbaceous characteristics. The taste is a bit greenish with flavors of blackcurrant, sour red cherries, liquorice, thyme, green bell pepper, and eucalyptus. The wine is a bit low in alcohol and has a low level of tannins, and it therefore lacks some structure in its taste palate that would make it a truly outstanding wine. We got the impression that the grapes might not be fully ripe or that the vines were still young. Nevertheless, a well-made and pleasant red wine to drink, for example combined with pecorino or frittata.
