Wooden boxes for dozen purchase!
Aged 9 months in the French and American barriques, Amaranta is ruby red with garnet reflections; opulent fruit, the bouquet is intense, fruity, persistent, with notes of dried flowers, spice, licorice, marasca cherries. The palate is stylish, velvety, almost creamy, compact with tannic structure that blends nicely with the alcoholic component. Complex, elegant, well balanced with a long aftertaste.
Bert Werden WineStar: Amaranta has become a phenomenon in Australia - and one must say predominantly at WineStar - owing largely to a charmed run it has had with influential Italian wine critic Luca Maroni. The nine releases since the 2008 vintage have all elicited scores of 90 and above, the last
three four (2014, 2015, 2016 & 2017) hitting the magical, Luca Maroni's maximum and some would say mythical, 99 Point mark.
As if we ever needed an extra incentive to sell out even quicker than we do each year, we have again managed to source the 99 Point 2017 vintage in quality original wooden boxes - complete with the winery logo burn in - for all dozen lot purchases.
