The Marauding Vintners travel the regions, coaxing and cajoling the makers of prime wine to send it their way. As their friends, we reap the benefits in the form of top drops like this. Now you can too! The Captain is a lush Langhorne Creek Cabernet that displays lifted aromas of blackberry, juicy plum and spice. The palate has a delicious fruit richness with luscious complexity. This is one smooth operator!
THREE Gold for this juicy and rich Cabernet? Why aren't we surprised? It comes from the great John Quarisa who has magic knack for creating luscious, mouthfilling reds that you want to keep on sipping. The show judges clearly find it irresistible as well. Juicy and rich, with delicious dark plum, blackcurrant, blackberry, and subtle eucalypt. The tannins are fine and smooth.
Hervé Sabardeil, our winemaker with limitless talent, has been making Cabalié, the big, ripe Catalan red, for over 15 years. He added the old-vine (Vieilles Vignes) edition in 2011, originally as a one off, but it was so popular we insisted he did it again. And again! The magic to this punchy red is really in the vines. At 60 to 100-years-old, yields are minute (about half of a Grand Cru claret). As a rule of thumb, the smaller the yield, the more concentrated the fruit, the more flavoursome the wine! That’s why we call it Cabalié’s Big Brother. Still made in the same style that was beloved by the Roman centurions and now our customers too, it packs even more flavour than the original. Ideal with garlic-roasted lamb, rich stews or cheese.
This brilliantly zippy, fabulously fresh white is made only from grapes grown in high altitude vineyards in the foothills of the Pyrenees. The little rain and dizzying heights found here result in wines full of intense, crisp fruit flavour and lifted herbal aromas. In Navarra, the pure sunshine and clear nights deliver wines that sing with freshness. Lemon crisp with lifted herbal and floral aromas. Enjoy lightly chilled.
Produced from hand-selected fruit from vineyards our talented wine team reserve for this wine, The Black Pig Shiraz leaps from the glass with sumptuous, rich and ripe blackcurrant tones and vanilla snippets. Oozing lashings of cedar, ripe berries and hints of chocolate this stunning Shiraz is the kind of wine that can drink now with ease, or be laid down for another 8 or so years. Shiraz drinking perfection.
