This red is a great value for under $12. A dark cherry colour summons the plum, mint, Worcester sauce, steak spice, vanilla, smoke and violets. It is soft and easy drinking with slight heat from the 14% alcohol that presents itself on the finish.
It’s rife with river-rock minerality, apple skin, pear, quince and a touch more oak spice on the nice [?]. It is so fine on the palate, no hint of the hot vintage of 2012, with lovely integration, length, fine oak spice, orchard fruits and maintaining a certain freshness through a long finish.
Elegant complexity on the nose reveals developed red fruit with great amplitude and depth of flavour on the palate. Supported by velvety tannins, moderate tannic grip and deft overall balance, this classically balanced Chianti Classico finishes with lingering notes of dark cherry and plum.
Australia meets the Rhone Valley. The wine has a fragrant nose of blackberry, exotic spices, earth, smoke and vanilla oak. A really full-bodied effort that delivers harmonious fruit flavours that linger on the palate.
Medium garnet in the glass with aromas of lifted berries, strawberry and spice notes, followed by a medium-bodied palate; firm acidity, good structure with some earthy notes and cedar hints.
Elegant bouquet proffers citrus and red fruit with floral notes and toasty, spicy and light caramel overtones. Brightly focused citrus flavour hits the palate initially, with Pinot red fruit providing a secondary kick. Typically Nova Scotian incisive acidity and mineral character contrast with fine creamy texture. Finishes with lingering fruitiness and yeasty biscuit notes. Affirms Benjamin Bridge’s growing credentials as a world leader in this style.
