Yalumba 'Y Series' Shiraz 2015 (1x75cl)

Awarded 85 points and Commended status by Decanter (www.decanter.com) in their June 2017 edition review of Australian value Shiraz.

 

Deep crimson in colour, this wine shows intense youthful aromas of ripe dark berries, mulberry jam, Indian spice, and dark chocolate. Rich and ripe, the Y Series Shiraz is a glorious mouthful of South Australia with layers of ripe blackberries and black forest cake surrounded by soft, juicy, fully ripe tannins and a moreish finish. Drinks perfectly with a roasted shoulder of lamb seasoned with garlic, rosemary, oregano, sea salt and black pepper; or stuffed peppers, well-seasoned with lots of middle eastern spices.

Tinpot Hut Sauvignon Blanc 2016 (1x 75cl)

Awarded 98 points and ultra-rare Exceptional status by Decanter (www.decanter.com) in their August 2017 edition review of New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs (see blue link below).

Tinpot Hut SB 2016 - August 2017 Decanter review

A complex and elegant wine with intense aromas of blackcurrant, crushed lemongrass and thyme, which mingle with passionfruit and melon highlights. On the palate, underlying ripe fruit and mineral notes from grapes grown in the Blind River sub-region of Malborough combine well with the more tropical notes of passionfruit and melon from the Wairau Valley vineyards.

The ripeness and tropicality - subtle and never overpowering - are the hallmarks of this excellent 2016 vintage. This is a stylish and pleasingly rich Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc with vibrant aromatics and a fine balance of acidity leading to a lingering finish.

Berton Reserve Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 (1x75cl)

Awarded 96 points and a rare Outstanding status by Decanter (www.decanter.com) in their April 2017 edition review of New World Cabernet Sauvignons (see blue link below).

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 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.

Berton Reserve Shiraz 2015 - August 2017 Decanter review

Following many enquiries re the 2015 vintage, let us explain...

At present, the 2015 is not available in the UK, and may not be for some months: it is the intention of both producer and UK sole supplier to sell through the 2014 first. Exel discussed the relative merits of the 2014 and 2015 vintages with Berton owner, Bob Berton, in person, a few weeks ago at the London Wine Fair. It is Bob's view that the 2014 is the equal of the 2015 but was simply not submitted for review at the previous DWWAs.

We now have a waiting list for the 2015 - see product page for that vintage.

The Reserve Shiraz is deepest dark red with a very youthful and vibrant garnet hue. The aromas are powerful and complex with a wealth of fruit ranging from ripe black cherries and blackberries with hints of eucalypt and spice. The rich and full palate displays soft flavours of plum skin, mulberry and hints of vanilla and blackberry, These abundant flavours are underpinned by fine vanilla from the oak and defined by exciting spicy tannins.
