“This is a great vintage for this wine with a very fresh, attractive delivery in a full-bodied style. Ripe red plums, blackberries and cherries with a cedary, tobacco edge, purple olives and fruit-steeped roasting herbs. It has a very intense, crisply cut palate that has flavours of dark cherries, blackberries, chocolate and such attractive spice complexity. Runs long on the focused finish. Regal. A great Caley. A blend of 74% Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon and 26% Barossa Shiraz. Try from 2023.” 98 Points – Nick Stock, JamesSuckling.com
The Calabria Cool Climate Series is focused on producing the highest quality wine from small hand selected parcels of fruit with intense flavours. The 2017 Riesling was selected from a single vineyard within the high altitude Hilltops region near Young, NSW. An aromatic wine with a fragrance of lime juice and lemongrass; the vibrant palate lingers with a delicious minerality like the granitic soil in which it is grown.
Calabria Wines is a family owned company established in 1945 by Francesco and Elizabeth Calabria. The fruit for this wine was hand picked and then aged in French and American oak for 6 months. It displays a deep ruby colour with a bouquet of liquorice, mint and berry fruit. Ripe blackberry flavours attack all parts of the palate with a well structured, firm and robust finish. Cellar for 3-5 years.
The brand new vintage from this outstanding producer that most of you will be familiar with, situated in Griffith, N.S.W. This is an instant stunner with its plum, dark berry fruit appeal but yet emphasizing its cooler growing conditions therefore does not exhibit overly ripe or aggressive tannins. On the palate it has wonderful intensity with very careful handling of oak which allows its typical terroir and natural characters of the wine to come through. This is an excellent partner for a Sunday roast or BBQ lamb. Drink now or cellar for the next 2-3 years.
Our brand new arrival of the Calabria Estate Richland Shiraz 2018. It has a big rich purple colour with hints of lavender, bosom berry with a lovely purple hue. Made in the traditional style in open fermenters, the wine is intensely varietal with spicy black and white pepper, olive grove and an abundance of berry fruit. Excellent now or over the next 3-5 years.
Margaret River has established an international reputation for exceptional Chardonnay. The Cape Mentelle style draws inspiration from traditional methods to deliver a wine displaying aromatic complexity and a finely textured palate with a long, clean finish.
This youthful wine is powerful, robust and complex displaying ripe pineapple, poached apple, frangipane and fresh cream aromas, with a honeyed richness highlighted by oak notes of fresh cedar and toasted hazelnuts. As the wine opens up, hints of vanilla bean, wet pebble, stone fruit and buttered popcorn emanate beautifully.
The palate is smothered with round ripe flavours of Fuji apple, dried mango, and wild rice pudding that is both creamy and unctuous. A complex array of fresh cashew, lemon peel, raw macadamia and nectarine notes flesh out this texturally expansive wine to complete this captivating expression of Margaret River chardonnay. Definitely a glorious full bodied wine!
Whilst this wine presents beautifully now it has the potential to age up to 15 years. The distributor of this brand is no longer importing into New Zealand so this will be your last bite of the cherry!
