Willaim Hardy Shiraz

2014
William Hardy

Oustanding Buy

A full-bodied red wine with intense fruit flavours of fresh blackberry and mulberry accompanied by rich black pepper and vanilla spice. Smooth tannins and balanced acid give this wine great structure across the palate with hints of coconut and toasted oak. Fresh blueberry and blackberry fruits offer generous length to the wine.

Brampton
2015 Sauvignon Blanc

South Africa

The Sauvignon Blanc from Brampton Wines, delivers a charming curation of ripe fruit flavours which are wonderfully offset by a crisp edge. Expect to encounter compelling notes of granadilla, pear, pineapple and yellow peaches on a focussed palate that first appears shy but develops beautifully with graceful intensity. The finish is crisp and clean, ending on an uplifting note of fresh citrus. The Brampton Sauvignon Blanc is a great food-pairing wine and is an ideal match to savoury Mediterranean pastas, grilled line fish and summer salads.

Medium ruby with purplish tints. Beautiful red fruits on the nose, such as plums and cherries. A balanced mouthfeel with flavors of redcurrant and black cherry supported by sweet, round tannins. It culminates in a long finish with notes of cloves and cinnamon.

Abundant amounts of licorice, smoke, herbs, cherries, and currants emerge from this deep ruby/purple-tinged, full-bodied, up-front, flamboyant 2002. It relies more on fruit and terroir than new oak to seduce the taster. Surprisingly supple and fleshy for the vintage, it is undeniably a sleeper of the vintage. Drink it over the next decade.

Etude Carneros Pinot Noir

Etude Pinot Noir 2013
Grace Benoist Ranch
Carenos, Napa Valley
California, USA

91 Rating

An outstanding value in high quality Pinot Noir, the 2012 Pinot Noir Estate is made primarily from Dijon clones. Its dark ruby color is followed by sweet notes of red apple skins, plums, forest floor and red as well as black cherries. Generously endowed with good acidity and freshness, this medium to full-bodied Pinot should drink nicely for 4-5 years.
