Balnaves Coonawarra Cab Sauv 2011 - April 2017 Decanter review 

The Balnaves' family vineyard is situated at the southern end of the famous Coonawarra 'Terra Rossa' strip. Planted in 1975, the vineyard is 48 hectares in size and has been in the family for three generations. The predominant variety planted is Cabernet Sauvignon. Winemaker Pete Bissell was the Qantas Winemaker of the Year 2005 and Balnaves was James Halliday's Winery of the Year in 2008.

Blended from Walker, Quarry and Avery vineyards, the wine spent 19 months in 100%, tight-grain French oak, in a mixture of hogsheads and barriques. The barrels were made by St Martin, Saury, Taransaud and Sylvain cooperages, before bottling in December 2011. 

Deep rich red in colour, the nose is intense with aromas of ripe cassis, liquorice, and some spicy leather notes, combined with fine smoky French oak. The palate is solid and structured with a fine tannin finish.

Berton Reserve Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 (1x75cl)

Awarded 96 points and rare Outstanding status by Decanter (www.decanter.com) in their April 2017 edition review of New World Cabernet Sauvignons (see blue link below) in which it emerged as the runaway Number One.

Berton Reserve 2014 - April 2017 Decanter review

Sourced from vineyards in the prized Terra Rossa region of Coonawarra: here the warm days are moderated by offshore breezes and the rich red loam over well-draining limestone soils are the foundations for Coonawarra's justified reputation for producing premium-quality Cabernet Sauvignon grapes.

This Coonawarra beauty (97% Cab Sauv) has an intense, ripe berry bouquet with hints of chocolate and liquorice. The palate is brimming with crushed blackcurrant fruit flavours enhanced by subtle eucalyptus and mint notes characteristic of this region and is beautifully complemented by elegant French oak notes.

£13.90

Chateau Belingard Bergerac Rouge Reserve 2014 (1x 75cl)

Nice and deep red colour with cherry tints. The aromas of strawberry, redcurrant and liquorice are harmoniously combined. Lightly spicy. On the palate, the attack is supple, the tannic structure is much present and already mellow.

£12.10

Chateau Musar Hochar Pere et Fils Red 2013 (1x75cl)

Hochar Père et Fils is sourced from specially selected vineyards near the village of Aana in the Bekaa Valley, characterised by deep, gravelly soil over a limestone base. Low yields (25-30 hectolitres per hectare) result in concentrated wines and the altitude keeps the average yearly temperatures at around 25 º C, encompassing cold, snowy winters, mild springs and hot summers.

The 2012 vintage is a blend of Cinsault (45%), Grenache (25%), Carignan (10%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (10%). The grapes were fermented between 27 º C to 30 º C, with 15-30 days maceration in cement vats, followed by 9 months in French Nevers oak barrels. It was blended in the spring of 2014 and bottled later in the same year.

The 2012 vintage of Hochar Red is in fact dominated by the sweetness of the Grenache even though it only accounts for a quarter of the overall blend. This wine has a bright crimson colour – a lovely depth of berry fruit on the nose and the palate is full and broad with layers of fruit and spice, cherries, raspberries and liquorice aromatics. Lovely purity with depth of fruit and a long, firm finish. It will benefit from being decanted and served at between 16-18 º C. Cellared in a steady environment, it will age for at least a decade from the harvest.

Dandelion Pride Of The Fleurieu Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 (1x75cl)

Dandelion Vineyards is the venture of self-titled 'typist' Zar Brooks, his winemaking wife Elena and growers Carl Lindner and Brad Rey, with wines made from the Barossa and Eden Valleys, Fleurieu and McLaren Vale. Nick Stock, one of Australia's leading journalists, has described Dandelion as follows: 'Brooks has teamed up with his winemaking wife Elena, a woman whose talents are outweighed only by her tolerance, in an exciting new venture called Dandelion Vineyards. The approach is remarkably simple and sees Elena making wine from a suite of beautiful old vineyards identified by Carl Lindner and Brad Rey across that blessed curve that runs from the Barossa, up through the Eden Valley and Adelaide Hills and down into McLaren Vale.'

With a prime position overlooking the Finniss River wetlands, Stranger's Reach vineyard is cooled by the maritime influence of the Great Southern Ocean and nearby Lake Alexandrina. Deep alluvial soils and low rainfall help the tough Cabernet vines produce rich flavours in the berries.

2015 was an early vintage following a cool and dry growing season and timely rainfall at veraison. These conditions preserved bright colour, fruit purity and the natural acidity of the wine.

Selected bunches were hand picked by family and friends in the third week of March and gently crushed into open top fermenters. After 14 days fermentation the wine was then basket pressed into some new but predominately older French Oak barriques for 18 months maturation and then bottled with minimal winemaking artifact, to capture the essence of the vineyard.

An intense, regal purple with bright edges. Scented blueberries, cassis and anise aromas with sweet spice, cedar and blackberry notes. The palate is rich, deep and full-flavoured, with blueberry, black plums, figs and milk chocolate flavours. Tobacco, spearmint and soft powdery Cabernet tannins are softened by smooth, mouth-filling fruit before a really extended finish.

Darenberg The Coppermine Road Cabernet Sauvignon 2010 (1x 75cl)

The nose exhibits classic Cabernet aromatics of black currant leaf, violets and cigar box with an interesting twist of cooking spice and mustard seed. These lovely savoury notes are followed through onto the palate but swept along by an underlying sweet blackcurrant and mulberry fruitiness that builds as the wine continues to evolve in your glass. The initially cedary tannins, start early and give the wine an incredible line. An intriguing fennel note accompanies the chalky tannins that are picked up on the finish, which is long and lingering.
