Wines Included In This Case Are:

2018 Giant Steps `Applejack Vineyard` Yarra Valley Pinot Noir (Victoria, Australia)
(100% Pinot Noir)

This highly acclaimed Pinot Noir from the Yarra is very herbaceous on the nose with smoky, cherry fruit and pronounced green bell pepper. The youthful palate has a refined feel with tight tannins & great length

2019 `Trinca Bolotas` Alentejo Tinto (Alentejo, Portugal)
(44% Touriga Nacional , 40% Alicante Bouschet, 16% Aragonez/Aragonês)

This wine takes its name from the Iberian black pig found across the Alentejo region. A robust, black fruit flavoured wine with a gamey edge, it is a perfect companion to “petiscos”.

“A fabulous blend of fresh blackberry, tobacco & dark chocolate aromatics with enticing millefeuille tannins leavening the layers of red & black fruit compote which line the juicy palate; incredibly smooth and rich with a lingering, spicy finish”

Platinum 97 pts, Decanter World Wine Awards 2020

2017 Bierzo Mencía, Cuatro Pasos (Bierzo, Galicia, Spain)
(100% Mencia)

From some of the highest vineyards in Bierzo, this has vibrant aromas of red cherries, red plums & a touch of violets on the nose, while the palate has balanced acidity and a touch of vanilla spice from 2-3 months ageing American & French oak barrels.

This delicious wine is morello cherry red in colour with violet hues. The varietal aromas of cherry, plum & violet are dominant on the nose with subtle hints of vanilla from the oak. On the palate, it is fresh and well-structured, with a fruit driven finish

2018 `Finca Colomé` Salta Tannat, Bodega Colomé `Lote Especial` (Molinos, Salta, Argentina)

“Few wines caused more of a stir amongst our judges this year than this Tannat from the extreme high-altitude vineyards of Argentina’s Salta. It wasn’t the fact that it was an impenetrable midnight black in colour, nor was it the fact that the wine needs plenty of air and agitation to wake up its aromatic profile: both are common features of Tannat the world over.

The real surprise was the drama and purity of its fruits, drenching the tongue and lifting aromatically in the mouth: this was a Tannat of ravishing chic and elegance, and a far cry from the sometimes burly and clumsy flavour presence Tannat shows elsewhere. No fan of Argentina’s remarkable red wines should miss this!”

2017 `Il Seggio` Bolgheri, Poggio al Tesoro, (Tuscany, Italy)
(50% Merlot , 20% Cabernet Franc, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petit Verdot)

‘Seggio’ is the name of the creek that runs through Bolgheri.

This wine is intense ruby red in colour with aromas of fresh crunchy red berries & dark fruit nuances enriched with layers of tobacco & spice. The fruit follows onto the complex palate that combines elegant silky tannins & a lively clean finish.

“Beguiling scents of fennel, mushroom, hedgerow fruit & plums, leading on to a complex, vibrant palate of seamless tannins around dark chocolate, sweet spices, plums and bright blue fruit”

Gold 96 pts, Decanter World Wine Awards 2020

2017 Kaiken `Obertura` Uco Valley Cabernet Franc (Valle de Uco, Mendoza, Argentina)
(100% Cabernet Franc)

This wine has beautiful concentration and an intense perfume balanced by a fresh acidity. This is a result of the high altitude site (1350 m above sea level) in Vista Flores in the Uco Valley where the Cabernet Franc grapes are cultivated.

This Cabernet Franc is intense ruby red in colour with elegant purple shades. The nose is complex, with aromas of ripe redcurrants, fresh plums & red pepper combined with spicy notes of black pepper, wild thyme & a hint of menthol. On the palate, it has beautiful fruit concentration balanced by fresh acidity & minerality, reflecting the high-altitude location of the vineyards. The long, elegant finish displays red fruit & spicy notes.

“Good varietal expression with fresh red and some black fruit aromas with earthy overtones. Nice balance of spice and acidity, fleshy with some musky character”
