Callia Signos Cabernet Sauvignon-Shiraz

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.

Michel Chapoutier is to The Southern Rhone, what Joseph Drouhin is in Burgundy: a class act negotiant. In this wine we have a deep purple red colour. The nose has lifted aromas of red fruits, blackcurrant and raspberry. The palate is fresh and round tasting with a finish of stewed fruits all served up with finesse.

Mannenberg Shiraz: New Wine: Wine Woman Pick

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

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.
