This beautiful Cotes Du Rhone is a blend of 50% Grenache and 50% Syrah.
I like this wine because it offers a fragrant bouquet of blackberry and blackcurrant with a delicate touch of oak and sweet spice. On the palate, it’s fruity, juicy with lovely smooth tannins.
“Single Barrel is a blend of six grape varieties: cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc, merlot, syrah, rubin and mavrud. Curiously they make around 16 barrels of this wine each year. Dense, purple-hued wine that looks much younger than its age of six years. Rich, ripe and flavoursome red with a dense. almost chewy texture suggesting old vine material. Dark berry, wood smoke, old leather, tar and spice characters. An intriguing wine that’s clearly got plenty of life ahead of it.” 95/100 – Bob Campbell MW
When it comes to Rosé production, it doesn’t come any more famous than Tavel. Instantly recognized as one of the best communes producing bombastic Rosé. Made from a blend of Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault, it’s a full bodied Rosé with just a little more skin contact but yet light, sensual, beautifully balanced with a magnificent finish of wild rose petals and coriander strawberry. Drink now or over the next 2-3 years.
Quintessential Rosé from the Rhone valley with a lovely blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre that made with the right proportions, they offer a beautiful fresh, floral and perfumed wine that palate wise is expressive, incredibly fresh and balanced. It’s almost like freshly picked wild strawberries on a sunny day! Put it in the fridge nicely chilled and have it with wild Salmon, beautiful! It’s almost like you are in Marseilles!
From a good producer such as Chateau de L’Engarran, this is what Languedoc can do. A stunning, balanced blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mouverdre, with hints of dry spice, garrigue and dry herbs which is full bodied, structured and balanced. Quintessential Languedoc, once you open the bottle it takes you there! 2016 is a pretty good vintage which is starting to drink beautifully now however for those with a little patience, it will keep rewarding you for the next 4-5 years.
After more than 20 years importing this wonderful Languedoc, we’ve got to say that it gets better and better. Beautiful cherry colour packed with dark berry fruit, spicy, floral and with hints of garrigue, really what Langeudoc is. Made from a blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mouverdre, it offers an array of dry spice intermingled with dry herbs with a core of minerality. Beautiful now or over the next 4-5 years plus.
Chateau de L’Engarran enjoys a tremendous reputation and history in the Coteaux du Languedoc rose is one of Chateau’s specialities. Made from Grenache and Syrah, this Rose is made from the juice that has seeped from the grapes without any artificial pressure. Beautiful wild salmon pink and onion skin colour with bright fresh aromas, hints of spice and beautiful texture. This is the kind of Rosé that you have on the veranda of a restaurant in Cannes or maybe Monaco with a salad nicoise.
Cairanne, a relatively new appellation within the Cotes du Rhone, makes wines mainly from Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. The 2016 a vintage which is starting to drink superbly now however with another 2 or 3 years it will only get better. Medium to full bodied with good concentration, balance and backbone. Wonderful aromas of thyme, pepper and roasted capsicum are very prominent but it is not only about fruit flavours, it also has excellent depth, length and beautiful balance. Drink now or over the next 4-5 years.
A new addition from this much acclaimed producer made from a blend of Syrah, Merlot and Grenache from the excellent vintage of 2018 which is full bodied and spicy with a typical expression of Languedoc in being perfumed and floral with hints of dry herbs and garrigue. On the palate it’s profound with lovely racy acidity, soft caressing tannins and a long finish. Excellent now but better over the next 3-4 years.
A full and enticing nose of aromas; blueberry and boysenberry tempered by darker spice flavours of cocoa nib and black cardamom, add to that complex savoury notes of manuka bark and sundried tomatoes. The palate sweeps in with flavours of cranberry and a mineral sensation that lingers through the length of the palate. The tannins are ripe and balanced. An impressive release of this wine, delicious drinking now but with a concentration and structure that will allow this wine to further evolve.
Syrah has been another classic for Te Mata Estate pretty much established with the idea to make stunning perfumed and peppery Syrah, the style you will find in the Northern Rhone. Lush with plum and boysenberry, the palate has immense depth and is interwoven with black liquorice, spice and velvety chocolate tannins. This of course is still very young and will develop further for 8 to 10 years developing a peppery, black olive and beautifully balanced Syrah.
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.
