As a Latin-American living in Taiwan, I am often in contact with South-American and French wines, also with Australian and South Africans but very little with Californian wines.
Totally unexpected. I saw it there and I was hesitating. But that owl was looking at me like, take me, take me.
I was good, it was satisfying, it was mystifying. With a dark steady color and cranberry hues.
This Cuveé was the appointed companion for watching the newest Pirates of the Caribbean. And just like the movie, it left us with a satisfying finish, one of those where not only the taste feels good but also the experience

What’s a girls night without a proper wine? Turns out we found this in our favorite makeup store.
It was unexpected, it was there and just waiting for us to take it. So, we did not struggle, and invite it to join.
One of the beauty of SunShower’s Wine section is to spend quality time with friends while sharing ideas and absorbing their comments on the wine.
The following post is a special one for two reasons, it is the first time I have special guests tasting wine for me. I did not tasted it, but together we defined the characteristics.
I wanted a Merlot, and what do I get? Anything but Merlot! Lauquita might have been acceptable under a different denomination.
Come on people! It is suppose to be easy to drink and soft, this thing is more like a Cabernet Sauvignon. The problem is not the taste, it is in fact good, but it is not what I expected.
It is technically impossible go wrong with this wine. Pinot Noir is a piece of art, always a little pricier, but it is worthy.
I had it for the first time, with a person very dear to me and the taste reminds me of the excitement and the beautiful evening. However, these nice memories do not hinder me of giving an objective review.
I remember when they first introduced this brand in Taiwan, the Kangaroo you see in the picture was everywhere and there was even a man in a kangaroo costume, as if wine was something meant to for children. After a while the fuzz went down and you could only find it in the supermarkets. I heard people talking about it, and I had always wanted to try it.
Now, here is the thing about Pinot Noir Gato Negro, it used to be my favorite. He introduced it to me, and we used to drink it on special occasions. I can assure you it matches perfectly the delicious parmesan mushroom and chicken pasta he used to cook for me. And sometimes with just a little chocolate it would be great. But that was then and my perception of wine has changed now.
In English, the Devil’s Cellar.
I first heard about this wine, when I was a child and saw and advertisement on TV. It told the story of the name was chosen. It had dark, mysterious effects and it was neatly narrated, to the point that I can still recall the voice and the story.
This was not specifically wine night, but it was “Black Mirror” night. We started this series while drinking Cuvée Pierre – Minerva. But it was not possible to finish all the seasons in one night. For installment 2, we were accompanied by Marquos du Village, a satisfying origin denomination.
Of dark color and deep smell. Very similar to a shiraz merlot, but fruitier. There isn’t too much to say, but that it was a good companion for the night as it was smooth and soothing.
Style: Light – Medium

Movie afternoon with Grexxen and SaltyAvocado went from great to amazing with the mind-blowing series “BlackMirror“. Even though this is not about the series, I seriously recommend it. It is full of unexpected twists and exploits different futuristic and technology situations. Some of them in the far future, and they might feel like impossible situations, but they leave you thinking when you realise that it might already be like that. Some other episodes present situations, somehow technology-related and that they could happen now or at any time. If I had to rate this series, I would say that the SunShower rating is
About three weeks ago, I was in charge to get the wine for the night. So, I dropped into the store and found a collection of Nederberg. They seamed interesting so I went for these two beauties.
I should have written about them right after drinking them for I have forgotten some of their features, however I have very clear the rating I want to give them.
Let me start with the Pinotage.
