Callia Signos Cabernet Sauvignon-Shiraz: New Wine

January 18, 2015
Callia Signos Cabernet Sauvignon

NEW BLEND: Never judge a book by its cover. Awesome Argentine Fruit, warmth & silkiness, warmer than a Chilean; less herbal. A lovely of surprise… development, once opened was unexpected. Day 2 was sublime. Simply had to purchase a further 8 cases to lock in the price for a while. “Delicious”, my wife adds, “this is exactly what I like!” Job done.

Mannenberg Shiraz: New Wine: Wine Man Pick

February 27, 2015
Mannenberg Shiraz

Well, well, well. This bottle was opened on a night when I felt really adventurous. Very, very surprisingly good and for little money. The stable-mates both do a great job for little money also, and turn up in restaurants at very reasonable prices too (especially the Chenin Blanc), but due to it’s south African origin, few are aware or interested. Pity.

Tyrrell’s Vat 9 Shiraz 2009

December 7, 2011
Tyrrell's Vat 9 Shiraz

“Clear, inviting crimson; like all the top Tyrrell’s Shiraz, open-fermented, matured for 15 months in near-new and one-year-old French 2700-l oval casks for 15 months; the X factor is the special purity of fruit flavour coming from ancient vines on red soils. Many will drink the wine (with great enjoyment) long before it reaches its peak.” James Halliday 97 points.
