Chateau de Nages – JT Red 2015 +736876 $26.95

A deep, almost black, garnet colour. Classic syrah notes of dark berry fruit, licorice and smoke. Medium bodied with a velvety tannic presence. The finish is very long with spices, mineral notes and freshness.

94 Pts – Jeb Dunnuck, October 19, 2017

“Bottled but not released yet, the 2015 Costieres de Nimes JT is 95% Syrah and 5% Mourvedre, always from the same plot that was fermented with 40% whole clusters. It offers gorgeous notes of blackberries, violets, hints of olive and even a touch of bacon fat, medium to full-bodied richness, beautiful mid-palate density, and a great finish. Reminding me of a top Crozes-Hermitage, it’s seriously good.”

Susana Balbo - Signature Malbec 2017 +79798 $19.95

Beautiful deep violet colour with exploding aromas of blackberry, black cherry and blueberries framed by hints of spices and mint. The wonderful aromas are mirrored on the palate and they are joined by ripe plum fruit and notes of toasty vanilla, bittersweet chocolate and a hint of mint on the finish. This is a ripe and rich style of wine with long velvety finish.

94 Pts – Tim Atkin, Best of Argentina Report, 2019

Castello di Querceto – Chianti Classico DOCG 2016+680496 $23.95

Brilliant ruby red, compound, with soft and elegant texture. Fruity aromas, balanced with herbal notes. Interesting final.

Food Pairing: Medium-aged cheese, lamb chops, roasted pheasant

92 Pts – James Suckling, September 11, 2018

“A ripe red showing aromas of sliced strawberries, black cherries and sweet licorice. Yet, this is energetic and fresh. Full body, chewy tannins and a medium finish. Drink now.”

Susana Balbo - Signature Rose 2018 +493130 $21.95

To craft this wine, the ever-experimental Susana Balbo had the Malbec and Pinot Noir picked early and used extremely gentle pressing to get the colour she wanted. You will find a crisp, fresh wine with bright red berry tones and refined minerality.

Food Pairing: This will be amazing with smoked salmon.
