The Good Juice – On Vintages - September 2, 2017

Wines to Look for at the LCBO This Weekend! - COMING TO VINTAGES!

We have three new wines releasing at the LCBO this weekend:

Dandelion Vineyards Lionheart of the Barossa Shiraz 2015 has an intense crimson colour with youthful purple hues. Lifted blue fruits, blood plum, ripe black¬berries and Christmas pudding-like spice flow out of the glass with spicy pepper, and hints of bramble and dark chocolate. Generous mouth filling sweet blackberry, raspberry and plums cover the palate with lashings of sweet spice. Firm but fine tan¬nins and dark chocolaty nuances continue throughout the lengthy palate with youthful finish.

Deep ruby red in colour, the Casale del Giglio Cesanese Rosso 2014 has intense aromas of marasca cherry, typical of late varieties, followed by spicy notes of white pepper, black pepper and violet. The mouthfeel is soft, with persistent tannins and pronounced acidity, essential criteria for long aging.

Bodegas Altanza Lealtanza Reserva 2011 has a complex and well-balanced bouquet; red fruits (raspberry, cherry), licorice blend seamlessly with the smoky, balsamic, spicy notes coming from the oak. Supple and rich on the palate, with a meaty texture and lively fruit that make this an easy reserva to drink, and very food-friendly too. Its ripeness and long finish will please many wine-lovers.

Natalie Maclean, September 2, 2017

“This full-bodied red wine has lip-smacking delicious aromas and flavours of black and purple fruit. Smooth and supple. Love the fact that this big shiraz is not filtered, giving us the full-on flavour experience. Try is with lamb and rosemary"

Casale del Giglio Cesanese Rosso 2014 +498188 $18.95

Rated 89
David Lawrason, Wiine Align, August 23, 2017

“From a large, progressive winery near the coast in Lazio south of Rome comes a juicy, fairly dense, savoury and fruity red from the local cesanese grape. Expect violet, plum, pepper and twiggy/herbal character on the nose and palate. It is medium-full bodied, fairly taut and juicy, with natural bitterness on the finish. Somewhere between syrah and malbec."
Bodegas Altanza Lealtanza Reserva 2011 +208223 $19.95

Rated 92

“A deep and beautiful nose of ripe strawberries and hints of dried flowers and soft spices. Medium-bodied with medium, juicy and soft tannins and a long, fresh and fruity finish. Drink now."
