This is still a work in progress as I upload tasting notes and wine labels from as far as 1999... Check back once in a while to get the updates.

Phelps Mistral and Rosemount GSM

Dinner at Oaks in Singapore.

1997 Phelps Vin du Mistral Viognier - a bit disappointing, since it wasn't as floral and fresh as I expected it to be.  This tastes a lot like the Guigal Côtes-du-Rhône.

Bought at Oaks for SGD 68.

1996 Rosemount GSM - mmm... Pretty good indeed.  Definitely Rhône style, but much sweeter palate as is typical of New World wines.  Still a bit young so tannins were still a bit much, but a very good effort.

Bought at Oaks.
