Le Chat Noir Pinot Noir 2014 (Pyrenees, France)
Blood red in colour with a lifted and expressive nose, bursting with aromas of bright perfume, ripe plums and dark berries. The palate is rich and supple with a core of sweetly fruited red berry and dark cherry flavours balanced by bright acidity. Notes of forest floor and smoky spice add complexity before fine tannins provide definition to the finish. The finest Le Chat Noir Pinot Noir to date.
Elefante Tempranillo Shiraz 2014
A blend of seventy percent Tempranillo and thirty percent Shiraz partially aged in mature oak barrels.
Dark red in colour with a dense, brooding nose of ripe dark berries, plums and smoked spice. The palate is rich and opulently fruited with an initial burst of ripe black berried fruit courtesy of the Shiraz framed by the structure and length of Tempranillo. The perfect companion for richly flavoured meat dishes.
Maretti Langhe Barbera Nebbiolo 2013
Everyone, but everyone, just loves the packaging on this wine. It’s 70% Barbera with Nebbiolo bringing up the rear. Juicy red fruits, plenty of spice, ginger biscuit, touch of saddle leather. Medium bodied, fleshy tannin, ample fruit, balanced acidity and a dry finish tinted with cherry pip and dried herb. So tasty. Absolutely ready to go now. Don’t cellar. Rated : 90 Points Tasted : Aug14 Alcohol : 13.5% Price : $22 Closure : Diam Drink : 2014 - 2016 Gary Walsh; The Wine Front
Les Courtilles Cotes Du Rhone 2013
Another winning release under this label. Texture, character, fruit and firmness. Great package at an excellent price. Velvety cherry-plum flavours with herb and floral highlights. Garrigue. Has a brightness. A juiciness. A more-ishness. And yet it’s not simple or overly straightforward. Light on its feet too. This would be great as a house staple. Alc: 13.5%; Price: $20; Drink: 2015 - 2019; Rated: 91 Points; Campbell Mattinson - Wine Front
