Made by using a carefully selected blend of new and older ‘reserve’ wine from their 1er cru Vineyards. With a great rip citrus backbone and a core of toasty, biscuit, honeyed stone fruits and soft baked apple. The mousse is lovely and soft, delicate bubbles and good length on the finish. The wine was vinified in oak barrels. The Edouard Brun range offer such great value.
The Perraud family produce their oustanding Muscadet wines in a fully organic and bio-dynamic fashion. Careful growing and vinification, with 6 months on lees give a wine that is fresh and intenseley floral, with a delicious mouthfeel. Top class.
The fruit is sourced from 5 different vineyards, mostly in Ebenezer and Greenock with some from the Western Ridge of the Barossa.
It’s a really typical Magpie red with lovely varietal fruit, black and red cherry, plum, spice and oak on the nose. It’s rich and opulent with ripe black cherry fruits to the fore, plum and cassis too. It has a savoury core, spice and liquorice and vanillan oak. Tannins are ripe but present and this big mouthful will drink well over the next 5-8 years.
Intensity is the name of the game, this delicious Shiraz from Australia’s Barossa valley bursts with black fruits, full bodied and rich there’s a lashing of black pepper, cinnamon and star anise. Intense meat dishes are the name of the game. Short-rib, Ox Cheeks or Smoked Brisket, big flavours for a big wine.
Ultra fresh Albarino from the region Rias Baixas on the Spanish/Portuguese border. Lovely minerality and fragrance, with piercing freshness and concentration. This is regarded as one of the best Albarino’s around.
Rias Baixas is a region, in Spain, north of Portugal. The region is known for making wine from the Albarino grape. ALbarino can be fat and tropical, this one is more citrusy and elegant in style. Decanter magazine voted this as one of the best Albarino in the world. The vineyard used to be owned by monks, but has been in private ownership for the last 40 years.
