Chevalier de L’Engarran Rouge 2015
This is absolutely new from the range of wines by Chateau de L’Engarran. A beautiful blend that describes and typifies Languedoc perfectly. Garrigue, spice and floral notes with hints of leather, dark cherry and hints of tapenade with a bright purple hue. This immediately take you back to the South of France, medium to full bodied, served at around 16-18 degrees with a beautiful ratatouille and you may as well be there yourself!
Chateau Musar Jeune 2016
The Jeune 2016 is a blend of old vines Cinsault (45%), Syrah (45%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (10%) from organically certified vineyards, harvested from late August onwards. The wines fermented in concrete vats, they were not fined or filtered and the sedimentation occurred naturally. The Musar Jeune Red 2016 is fresh, vibrant, fruity and soft with plenty of ripe red and dark fruit and a hint of sweet spice. The tannins are gentle and the finish smooth. It’s perfect for immediate drinking but also has years of ageing potential.
Chateau Musar 2010
Cabernet Sauvignon, Cinsault and Carignan were blended in 2012 after having spent a year in untoasted French Nevers barrels and this vintage was bottled in the summer of 2013. It is a deep, rich garnet colour with aromas of raisins, cedar, prunes and cinnamon. The 2010 is a savoury, herby wine with delicate spices and the raisiny, figgy aromas follow through to the palate. This is an elegant vintage with fresh acidity anda long, dry finish.
Secateurs Shiraz Cinsault 2011
This could be the South African answer to Chateauneuf du Pape. With a blend of Shiraz, Cinsault, Grenache and a little Mourvedre, it will remind you of a Chateauneuf however fruitier and bolder yet exotic with lovely dry alpine herbs and mountain spice. Full bodied, complex with lovely backbone and structure. Excellent with red meats, casseroles and spicy food. Drink now or over the next 5 plus years.
