Flowers Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir is deep garnet color with ruby highlights. This Pinot Noir has expressive aromas of dark berry fruit, black tea, and dried cranberry with earthy nuances of oregano, spice and sweet tobacco. Delivering flavors of ripe plum, fig, orange and licorice this wine is bold; yet, graceful on the palate with supple tannins and a lingering coastal minerality on the finish.
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.
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.
