Beronia Crianza 2013 (1 x 75cl)

The grapes for this wine were collected at the beginning of October. Following harvest the grapes underwent cold maceration for a few days in order to extract aromas and colour however not tannins. Alcoholic fermentation took place at low temperature of less than 26ºC with periodic pumping over. The wine was then aged in mixed oak barrels of American staves and French tops for 12 months giving both vanilla notes from the American oak and spice from the French oak. The wine was bottled in January 2016 and remained in bottle for 3 months before being released to the market.

 

This Beronia Crianza shows an intense cherry colour. Attractive nose with red fruits and floral aromas in perfect harmony with mineral and cocoa notes. A balanced and sweet palate with the fruit and liquorice standing out over a base of chocolate and coffee.  Persistant and well structured.

 

This wine is made using the following grapes: 82% Tempranillo, 14% Garnacha and 4% Mazuelo.

Domaine Gramenon Cotes du Rhone Sierra Du Sud 2015 (6x75cl)

Awarded 91 points and Highly Recommended status by Decanter (www.decanter.com) in their May 2017 edition review of the Southern Rhone (see blue link below).

 

Syrah is stated as the "majority" variety, and we know this to be almost 100% in exceptional years, with huge attention to detail shown by Gramenon to create a beautifully balanced wine. Grapes are manually harvested and macerated for 12 days. Natural yeasts are used in the fermentation, followed by a 7-month ageing before bottling, some part being aged in steel, some in oak barriques

 

This is bold and elegant Cotes du Rhone, and much above the common herd: it is silky, aromatic, and full of local flavor: lavender, black olive, and ripe blackberry. It will keep for up to 8 years from vintage.

 

Sierra Du Sud 2015 - May 2017 Decanter review

£112.75

Jean-Luc Colombo Crozes Hermitage La Tuilere 2010 (1x 75cl)

Typical aromas of Syrah from the Northern Rhône dominate; red fruits & blackcurrant characters balanced with rich spicy notes. The wine is well structured with good grip from the tannins. With discreet oak characters it is smooth and balanced and can be enjoyed straight away for its fruit or could be aged for 3 or 4 years depending on personal preference.

Massolino Barolo `Parussi` 2012 (1 x 75cl)

Awarded 90 points and Highly Recommended status by Decanter (www.decanter.com) in their December 2016 edition review of the Barolo 2012 vintage  (see blue link below).

 

Massolino Barolo Parussi 2012 - Dec 2016 Decanter review

 

This 23 hectare estate has has been in the Massolini family since 1896.  Since 1994 the style of the wines has undergone a subtle transformation. Winemaker Franco Massolino has done a wonderful job of marrying change with a respect for tradition, something that sets him apart from most of the younger producers in Barolo today. This is in part dictated by the nature of the vineyards that the Massolino family owns in the commune of Serralunga d'Alba - the source of some of the greatest, most structured, robust and long-lived Barolo wines.

  

Fruit for this Barolo was sourced from the 1.3 hectare Parussi vineyard in Castiglione Falletto, situated at an altitude of 300 metres above sea level. Purchased in 2007, this is Massolino's first vineyard outside of Serralunga d'Alba. The excellent south-easterly/south-westerly exposure of the vineyard, situated on the crest of the hill, guarantees the production of excellent quality grapes.  The average age of the vines is 40 years old.  

 

The wine was matured in large oak casks for 30 months followed by a year in bottle before release.  It is rich and deep garnet in colour. Balsamic aromas on the nose, with hints of earth and red fruits. A vigorous, powerful and deep wine, with young tannins.

Meerlust Estate Red 2013 (1 x 75cl)

The wine has an intense opaque deep ruby colour very slight gradation to the rim. Bright and vivacious in the glass very youthful. The nose is expressive with lifted dark fruit cassis plum chocolate and black cherry. There is a pronounced minerality on the nose with graphite cedar smoke and cigar box bouquet. On the palate the Red is open textured with a rich juiciness and savoury quality already. The perfectly formed ripe round tannins are densely packed and tightly woven but remain lithe and almost powdery giving the wine a generous opulence even at this early phase of its development. Venison game pot roast and noble cheese.
£10.98

Torbreck Run Rig 2003 (1x75cl)

Once decanted the appearance is a deep ruby colour. Aromas of vanilla, plums, dried prunes, blackcurrant, pungent spices, vanilla, blueberries, and some floral notes fill the nostrils. The palate is rich and lush, with flavours of ripe black cherries, blackcurrants, liquorice, vanilla, sweet and pungent spices. An excellent accompaniments to French poetry; we recommend Baudelaire or possibly Verhaeren.

Tornatore Etna Rosso 2014 (6 x 75cl)

Awarded 90 points and Highly Recommended status by Decanter (www.decanter.com) in their December 2016 edition review of Etna Rosso (see blue link below).

 

Tornatore Etna Rosso 2014 - Dec 2016 Decanter review

 

Volcano! One of the largest producers in the region, Tornatore owns 46 hectares of vineyards on the north side of Mount Etna, 1,000m above sea level.

 

Ruby red with faint purple, typical of this variety which is not very rich in colour. Clear hints of red berries, morello cherry and black cherry on the nose. The taste is characterized by balanced tannins and a surprising fullness, flavour and persistence.

Domaine Catherine & Dominique Derain Mercurey Rouge, La Plante Chassey 2013 (1x 75cl)

Dominique and Catherine Derain definitely adopt a minimalist approach. They farm biodynamically, hand harvest, do not chaptalize or acidify and use the barest amount of sulphur in their winemaking approach. All the fruit is hand-picked and they destem 90% of their red grapes before fermentation, which occurs in wooden vats. After fermentation the wine is aged in old oak casks for 12-18 months. The couple never use SO2 during the winemaking process, adding only a small amount at bottling for stabilization. The thrilling Mercurey from old biodynamically-tended vines (100 years old) reaches an altogether different level. It is a blend of 85% Pinot Noir, 15% Pinot Beurrot (related to the Pinot Gris). There is a silky nature to this Mercurey giving it a supple mouthfeel and a detailed range of raspberry and cherry fruit with a touch of pomegranate. It has lovely spice notes and touch of lavender on the nose. Striking elegance, complexity and length.
