Plantagenet Aquitaine Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
Intense cassis and dried floral aromas. With a dense vibrant core of berry fruit on the palate and hints of fresh tobacco and subtle earthy undertones. A very approachable, youthful Cabernet with potential to age.
Plantagenet’s total 126 hectares of vineyard have been carved out of the region’s distinctive Marri soils named after the massive native Marri, or Red Gum trees that grow here. The soils are ironstone gravelly loams over a base of clay, sand or the ironstone rock. The vineyards sites are selected where drainage is good enabling control over vine vigour, one of the most important determinents of fruit quality.The combination of soils, landforms and climate – or terroir – creates wines of rare distinction and quality.
Irvine Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2019 is a fruit bowl of raspberries, blackberries and blueberries backed by cedar spice, black pepper and a savory streak. The savoriness continues on the palate in the form of fine-grained tannins that hold all that plump fruit in place. A plush but balanced expression of the Eden Valley.
Milcrest Syrah 2012. A single vineyard Syrah, grown on a North-facing, sun-drenched site and picked at optimum ripeness. It has Northern Rhone characters of white pepper and dried herbs, combined with a lovely fruit richness and generous oak character through extended barrel ageing.
Paxton MV Shiraz 2020
Organic | Biodynamic
COLOUR: Bright purple with red hues
AROMA: Oscillating between ripe blackberries stolen from your neighbour’s back fence and wild fennel seeds harvested along a country roadside this wine keeps you intrigued waiting for further revelations like cocoa and star anise
PALATE: A medium to full-bodied wine with fresh mulberries on the palate entrance. The texture feels like floating over rolling hills in a smooth convertible, opening up like a view over an expansive valley at the crest of the last hill. Elongated by careful maturation in French oak barriques, the finish is like watching a glowing sunset at the end of an action-packed day
Paxton’s vineyards comprise of six Biodynamic properties. MV ‘McLaren Vale’ or ‘Multiple Vineyard’ Shiraz is a blend of 100% Shiraz from four of the Paxton vineyards, and has been developed to highlight optimum fruit flavours.
The MV displays the hallmarks of classic McLaren Vale Shiraz – elegance, balance and pleasure in a bottle. This wine gives the best of both worlds: a fantastic wine when young, but careful cellaring for 10-15 years will reward you very nicely.
Patritti Shiraz 2019 is classic McLaren Vale style with raspberry, plum and blackcurrant fruit flavours. Oak and fruit tannins are integrated and balanced giving great line, length and structure.
Chateau Les Grands Marecheaux 2015
Château Massereau, situated at Barsac at about 30 kilometers from Bordeaux, was built in the 16th century and acquired by the Chaigneau family in 2000. The estate extends over 19 hectares, 10 planted (6 600 – 7 000 plants/hectare) in the Barsac, Graves and Bordeaux Superieur appellations.
Jean-François, who chose by passion to become a wine-maker, and Philippe, his brother, sales manager, have taken on a real challenge. Quality and authenticity are the key-words of the estate to give birth to fine, natural, authentic artisan wines.
Extreme vine-growing and wine-making methods, with respect of the terroir, of the vines, of the grapes on the 3 terroirs of Barsac, Graves and Bordeaux Superieur : ploughing (sometimes with horses) (no chemical weeding), disbudding, thinning out of leaves, selection of bunches as well as the harvest are manual and regarding the grapes of Barsac, they are pressed in an old wood press operated manually.
No chaptalisation, no acidification, no filtration, no fining, no wine-making additives, use of a very small quantity of SO² (total SO² from 10 to 35 mg/l), no manipulation, in order to offer natural wines and allow the terroirs to express their typical qualities.
Marq DNA Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 Lifted aroma of blueberry, black currant and chocolate mint with hints of cedary oak and signature Margaret River tomato leaf.
A full bodied wine with a rich juicy palate and abundant fine velvety tannins. It has intense red and black fruits with a background of tasty oak and hints of black jub and mocha.
The Octogenarian Grenache 2017
For decades we and our neighbours tended to our frugal Grenache vines on sandy soils at Blewitt Springs, McLaren Vale. Commonly referred to as 80 year old vines, or “Perpetual Octogenarians”, their pedigree of quality became more evident over the decades. When the opportunity arose to become the next custodians of more of these meagre cropping, gnarly vines, the Collett family embraced them in 1988. We nurture these rarely respected Octogenarians and enjoy their lasting characters. Long live OCTO!
Grapes were traditionally fermented on skins and pumped over twice daily before being gently pressed on the 6th day of fermentation. To retain and enhance the juicy varietal character of Grenache, both free run and pressings were combined into a combination of stainless steel tanks and seasoned oak vessels for maturation.
A cooler vintage and long ripening season brought lively acidity and finely structured tannins to a wine with bright colour and lifted red fruit aromatics of cherry and raspberry. A combination of fine palate structure and bright red fruit aroma has built a balanced style of wine that will drink well in its youth or will reward you with careful cellaring of up to 8 years.
Enjoy with a selection of Spanish tapas, or crispy skin pork belly next to a roast pear and rocket salad.
Cirillo Shiraz 2018 – made with grapes sourced from high altitude vines from Steingarten on the border of Barossa and Eden Valley ranges.
With open fermentation, natural yeast , basket pressed and then matured in seasoned French and American oak for 12 months.
The colour is dark, ink-like in appearance. It displays earthy spice driven aromas, with hints of berry fruits. Soft and delicate on the palate, typical of shiraz from this region.
It carries mid-palate weight, with a lengthy finish that lingers in the mouth for some time. This wine can be enjoyed now or over the next decade or two.
Jasper Hill Georgia’s Paddock Shiraz 2019 Deep, rich dark blackberry and cherry with hints of vanille from the oak. Graphite minerality with a peppery spice. This is a rich and powerful wine that is densely textured with plush blackberry, liquorice and dark plum fruits, subtle scorched earth, dried herbs and blackpepper. Ripe chewy tannins provide great structure and give the finish a muscular feel. Superb depth of fruit with a very rich, long and robust aftertaste.
Domaine Garon “Les Triotes” 2008 – Côte Rôtie (Blonde)
This is the main wine of the Domaine, made with Syrah grapes averaging 25 years of age producing an average yield of 36hl/ha. The fruit is from 4 lieux dits representing 4.50 ha in the Côte Blonde area of the appellation. About 30% of the grapes are vinified as whole bunches, both concrete vats and stainless steel vats are used for the fermentations that last about 2 weeks at 30°C. The wine is aged in oak barrels for 18 months with 25% of new oak and 75% of 1 to 5 years old barrels, the wine is then bottled without filtration.
PVins notes: This is a great example of a “Côte Blonde” wine. It will fully express its origins after 3-4 years cellaring with floral and spicy aromas, it is well-balanced and structured by the tannins, a cool climate style of Syrah. The wine may be cellared for up to 20 years in great vintages.
