Arneis 2020   SOLD OUT!

Review

 

A Northern Italian variety with the nickname of Little rascal. Incredibly versatile, this mildly complex off-dry aromatic wine is a perfect match for seafood, light hors d’oeuvres, creamy cheeses, salads or simply enjoy it on its own. Subtle aromas of pear, yellow peach, chives and mint with a hint of orange rind. Refreshing citrus acidity on the palate with a hint of lychee and a herbaceous flinty kick, all softened by golden liquid honey.

Chardonnay Paki-Paki 2020     $28.00 per bottle 

 Review

 

This Classic style barrel fermented Chardonnay is rich and complex. Aromas of mango, pineapple, mandarin and ripe melon with a hint of flint. Bold and sharp, yet well rounded on the palate; flavours of toast, honey, with a whisper of eucalyptus, finishing with an oaky creaminess. To be enjoyed on its own or with a wide variety of dishes, from a plater of cheese, tapas or elaborated mains.

Optimum drinking time is 2021 to 2024, but will develop fine tertiary aromas beyond 2025.

Optimum serving temperature is room temperature or slightly chilled on hot days to 12-14 *C.

Cabernet Franc Home Block 2019     $28.00 per bottle   

Review 

 

For your next sophisticated dinner party consider this French style wine inspired by the Loire Valley. Your guests should savour slowly this elegant, complex and multi layered wine. Its seductively rich crimson colour gives an initial burst of raspberry followed by wickedly wild berries, wild flowers then the earthiness of the forest floor and subtle notes of spice and flint stone.

 

Optimum drinking time is 2018 - 2023, good ageing potential.

Optimum serving temperature is room temperature or slightly chilled on hot days to 12-14 *C.

Review

 

Aromas of ripe cherries, plums and violets. This bright ruby red coloured Syrah is fruit driven with notes of cedar and mixed spices.

Optimum drinking time is 2020 to 2023, it should develop port like flavours after 2022.

Our home vineyard is proving to producing bright Northern Rhone Valley style wines. An explosive journey of intermingling flavours swirling to delight both the nose and palate; violets and cherries, black currants and tapenade, then thyme and botanicals, licorice, dark cocoa and rhubarb, with continuous undercurrents of generously integrated tannins. Beautifully soft and lengthy finish, perfect for fine cuisine.
