Wine Spectator has released another edition of their widely read publication (said to be over a million copies a month) and we were chuffed again to see that Dombeya Wines were rated, with very positive comments.

James Molesworth is the reviewer who covers South Africa, and had this to say about the two wines submitted,

Dombeya Chardonnay 2006
88 points

Nicely focussed, with good pear, hazelnut and candied citrus peel notes backed by a fresh finish. Drink now.

Dombeya Samara 2005
89 points

Quite ripe, with fig, currant paste, and espresso notes, held in check by a layer of bittersweet cocoa. Tobacco and warm tar notes fill out the slightly aggressive finish. Drink now through 2010.

Dombeya Wines are imported and distributed in the U.S. through GOS International in Florida.
