Accordini Amarone Classico Acinatico DOC 2013 (1x 75cl)

Awarded 87 points and Recommended status by Decanter (www.decanter.com) in their May 2017 edition review of Amarone (see blue link below).

 

Accordini Amarone 2013 - May 2017 Decanter review

 

Deep garnet in the glass with an intense black cherry and vanilla bouquet. On the palate, it is full bodied, rich and creamy with smooth tannins. At 16% alcohol, it should really be a monster; in reality, it is fantastically balanced with a minerality which keeps it fresh and dangerously moreish.

Alpha Zeta 2013  - May 2017 Decanter review

 

Deep and intense on the nose with perfumes of dried cherries and blueberries, with notes of spiced autumn fruit compote.  On the palate it is powerful but modern, with a lovely balance of ripe tannins and spiced, concentrated savoury cherry fruit character.  A touch of woodsmoke completes the long finish.

Berton Reserve Barossa Shiraz 2014 - June 2017 Decanter review

 

The Reserve Shiraz is deepest dark red with a very youthful and vibrant garnet hue. The aromas are powerful and complex with a wealth of fruit ranging from ripe black cherries and blackberries with hints of eucalypt and spice. The rich and full palate displays soft flavours of plum skin, mulberry and hints of vanilla and blackberry, These abundant flavours are underpinned by fine vanillan oak and defined by exciting spicy tannins.

Awarded 96 points and a rare Outstanding status by Decanter (www.decanter.com) in their April 2017 edition review of New World Cabernet Sauvignons (see blue link below).

 

Berton Reserve 2014  - April 2017 Decanter review

 

Sourced from vineyards in the prized Terra Rossa region of Coonawarra: here the warm days are moderated by offshore breezes and the rich red loam over well-draining limestone soils are the foundations for Coonawarra's justified reputation for producing premium-quality Cabernet Sauvignon grapes.

 

This Coonawarra beauty has an intense, ripe berry bouquet with hints of chocolate and liquorice. The palate is brimming with crushed blackcurrant fruit flavours enhanced by subtle eucalyptus and mint notes characteristic of this region and is beautifully complemented by elegant French oak notes.

Berton Reserve The Black Shiraz 2015 - June 2017 Decanter review

 

The vibrant dark cherry fruit typifies the area that this wine is from in Padthaway, South Australia and is the backbone of this wine.Blackberry, plum and mocha are also evident, creating a palate that is rich and soft.  This wine was matured in French oak for approximately 4 - 6 months before being filtered and blended for bottling.  It is a wine that has been made to drink now but will cellar for around 5 years.

Casa Ferreirinha, Planalto Branco 2015 - June 2017 Decanter review

 

This excellent - and wonderful value - white blend (of new fewer than 7 different varietals!) comes from relatively high-altitude vineyards above the river Douro. The grapes were harvested by hand in the highlands and plateaus of the region and were selected for their balance between phenolic maturity and excellent freshness. 

 

Bright lemon in colour. On the nose, intense floral aromas stand out, as well as citrus fruits, tropical fruits, white stone fruits and light asparagus aromas. It has lively acidity which is well integrated on the palate. The finish is elegant and harmonious.

Casa Ferreirinha Vinha Grande Douro Branco 2015 - June 2017 Decanter review

 

This premium Duoro white blend, based around the Viosinho grape, was sourced from Ferreirinha's Quinta do Sairrão estate located at a high altitude in the Cima Corgo region.

 

Vinha Grande Douro Branco 2015 has a golden colour with citric nuances. It has an intense aroma, with white and tropical fruit standing out, as well as floral notes, light minerality and well-integrated discrete wood which gives it good complexity. It has good volume and lively acidity on the palate, giving it notable freshness, with hints of white fruit and light asparagus. Its finish is long, elegant and balanced.

Colome Autentico Malbec - October 2016 Decanter review

 

Very elegant, the 2012 vintage makes for pleasant drinking thanks to excellent fruit expression. The late harvest period has given this Pouilly-Fuissé lovely balance between purity, minerality and complexity.

Awarded 88 points and Recommended status by Decanter (www.decanter.com) in their June 2017 edition review of Australian value Shiraz (see blue link below).

 

Dandelion 'Lioness of McLaren Vale' Shiraz 2013 - June 2017 Decanter review

 

Deep purple with hints of violet on the edges, indicating youth. Impressive purity of fruit showing lush scents of summer pudding with lifted red fruit, berries and a hint of cinnamon. Black cherries, damsons, mulberries and milk chocolate undertones. Generous mouth filling blackberry, raspberry and plum flavours cover the palate with lashings of sweet spice.

DArenberg The Footbolt Old Vine Shiraz 2013 (1x 75cl)

Awarded 86 points and Recommended status by Decanter (www.decanter.com) in their June 2017 edition review of Australian Value Shiraz (see blue link below).

 

D'arenberg Footbolt 2013 - June 2017 Decanter review

 

The nose is incredibly lifted and fragrant, red fruits and peppery spices feature strongly. As the wine breathes we are struck by a raft of darker and more earthy aromas such as mulberry, black plum, soot and baking spice. The palate is pleasantly bright with lively acidity and elegant fruit weight. A generous dose of mineral fruit tannin ensures the wine is structured and wonderfully long. As this wine ages it will develop more generosity and complexity through the mid palate, but the acid and tannin structure will ensure it stays lively and long.

£12.64

Darenberg The Laughing Magpie Shiraz Viognier 2010 (1x 75cl)

Awarded 86 points and Recommended status by Decanter (www.decanter.com) in their June 2017 edition review of Australian Value Shiraz (see blue link below).

 

D'Arenberg Laughing Magpie 2010 - June 2017 Decanter review

 

The wine has an enticing mix of primary fruit characters entwined with the first hints of moreish secondary nuances. There is an enormous concentration of blackberry and blackcurrant on the nose and palate, a whiff of flowers, ginger and stone fruit that we can attribute to the Viognier and depth is built through more savoury notes of fennel, fresh leather and cedar.
