A blend of Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Dolcetto and Lagrein. Enticing nose reflects the complex blend of varietals overlaid with a dusting of cinnamon and a light kiss of clove. Layers of red and dark fruit with gutsy tannic structure and food-friendly drying finish. Drink with grilled steak, roast lamb or other robust red meat dishes.
Delightful off-dry aperitif wine. Straw colour with a spicy, aromatic orange-blossom nose; sweet and grapey — like biting into a Muscat grape straight from the fridge. Nicely balanced, fresh and lively in the mouth. Clean and true to the variety.
This is an unusual, wild-fermented Riesling that spends 2 years on the lees from the winery’s entire white wine production. Only 36 cases made. The nose is smoky with creamy and mineral-laden citrus/apple fruit and just a touch reductive. Under the creamy feel and sharp lemon-lime flavours is profound chalk and flintiness with bracing acidity and lime zest.
Unoaked treatment without any malo-lactic fermentation means a fresh, mouth-watering taste experience. Abundant orchard fruits and blossoms abound on both nose and palate. Pinot Gris’ richness fills the mid-palate, balanced by citrusy acidity. Fruit peel and sage on the finish. Have with seafood risotto.
A stylish old vine Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot blend displaying characteristic Bordeaux breed with plum, piquant blackcurrant and earthy and green herbal notes on the nose. Juicy ripe plum and black cherry flavours follow though on the palate, with firm tannic grip and background earthy minerality.
Cave’s appassimento (think Amarone) wine is made entirely from Cabernet Franc grapes which were air-dried for 9 weeks before pressing and fermentation. Even though the label says 14.5%, it is closer to 15.5%. A profile of plum, mint, chocolate, dark cherry, vanilla, coconut, tobacco and spice meets up with a long aftertaste. Ready to drink now or until 2021.
This organic offering shows a range of blackberries, cherries, currants and spice on the nose. It’s a substantive wine on the nose with a thick broth of plums, cassis and currants with spicy wood nuances through the finish.
