Loads of ripe dark fruit with hints of chocolate, liquorice and fresh herbs, firm elegant tannins and a nice freshness. Hits all the right notes for commercial appeal, but lacks a little in the interesting category.
An enticing blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot: deep ruby colour; cedar, blackcurrant and blueberry nose with well integrated oak; full-bodied, rich on the palate with a velvety mouthfeel; medium-bodied, dry, with sweet fruit and a mineral note.
Made from old bush vines, which produce naturally low yields. This is a juicy Chenin which flaunts honey, melon, yellow apple, lemon and white flowers. Great length and a wine that calls out for shrimp or scallops.
Tobacco, cassis, spice, violets, cherry and raspberry are all found in the 100% Cabernet Franc wine. Mid-weight, it is accessible, with soft tannins rounding out the finish. Pair with a grilled veal chop marinated in oregano and olive oil.
I have always been a fan of this bottling, and the current vintage lives up to its predecessors. Elegant and crisp, it is all about apple, peach, pear, flowers and minerals. It is an ideal aperitif wine, or pair it with mild Brie and canapés.
100% Pinot Noir sparkling made in the ancient method (pét-nat) and bottled with 22 g residual sugar during primary fermentation, forgoing any additives or stabilization. A bready/yeasty entry with rich apple, muted citrus and a lovely floral note on the nose. It’s bright and energetic on the palate with a persistent mousse and flavours of citrus rind, tart apple and toast that all lead to a fresh and finessed finish.
