  • 2015 Unánime, La Mascota – MagnumRed Wine

    2015 Unánime, La Mascota – Magnum

    £3950

    Unánime is the top, icon blend of the winery with predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon blended with Malbec and Cabernet Franc. This rich, concentrated wine comes from San Carlos in the Uco Valley and spends a year and a half in French oak barrels before being bottled.

    Made from 50-year-old vines it has black cherry fruit on the nose, with cocoa powder, currant leaf and malt extract. Lovely texture on the palate: ripe, unashamedly New World fruit married to crisp acidity and defined but gentle tannin. Rich and rounded, yet with beautiful freshness and a sense of minerality.   Take your time to sip it, because it gets even better: progressively more silky, with notes of liquorice and violets.

  • 2014 The Florita Riesling, Jim Barry – Magnum Wine Republic Heros White Wine

    2014 The Florita Riesling, Jim Barry – Magnum

    £5995

    There is nothing quite like a magnum for sharing and this iconic 2014 ‘The Florita’ Riesling from Jim Barry is just the ticket.

    This magnificent wine opens in the glass with delicate floral aromas of citrus blossom, rose water, lime citrus and hints of green pear.  A wine of immense drive and purity.  It shows the
    hallmarks of a youthful but restrained Florita with a promise of more to come. Lime citrus is dominant with elements of pear and rose water with long lingering acidity.
    A magnificent benchmark dry Riesling to be enjoyed now or with careful cellaring for the next ten years.

    The Florita Story – It starts in 1946, just after the war, when Leo Buring bought land at Watervale and planted Pedro Ximénez for sherry – the preferred wine of Australians at the time. He named the vineyard Florita, which is Spanish for ‘little flower’ – a reference to the sherry flor (or flower), the film of yeast that covers the dry flor sherry as it matures in its ullaged casks.
    Public tastes shifted, table wine became fashionable, and in 1962 Buring’s winemaker John Vickery began to remove PX and plant Riesling. “He started to make Riesling (wine), which began to be seen as the future of Australian white wine,” says Barry. Indeed, Vickery and the Leo Buring brand became almost synonymous with Riesling.

    “In 1986 Philip Morris (the tobacco company which owned the Leo Buring brand at the time) had six years supply of Riesling in its cellars, and no-one was drinking it – Chardonnay was the new fashion. They decided to sell the Florita vineyard.   My brothers and I went to the auction. I was 24.  Mum said ‘You’re not allowed to buy it’. She said we already had plenty of vineyards. We told Dad he’d better buy it, and that would let us off the hook.  Southcorp owned the Florita trademark at the time, and although the Barrys began using the grapes immediately, they couldn’t use the name.
    “I had to wait eight years until the registration period was up, but then Southcorp renewed it for another 10 years, so I had to wait 18 years all told, and I registered the name Florita two days after it lapsed.

    Eighteen years is a long time to wait for a drink.”

  • 2011 Santa Cecilia, Planeta – MagnumRed Wine

    2011 Santa Cecilia, Planeta – Magnum

    £6950

    Santa Cecilia is Planeta’s homage to the most important Sicilian grape variety, Nero d’Avola.  After much research into finding the best place to produce a great wine from this grape, Planeta decided on the DOC Noto at the southern extremity of Sicily. With its white soils and its ancient vines, this is the epicentre of cultivation for Nero d’Avola.

    Santa Cecilia is an expression of elegance, power, balance and eminence of the unique aromas of Sicily, and today is the reference point for red wines produced from indigenous Sicilian grapes. Its name derives from the family: Planeta di Santa Cecilia.

  • 2004 Viña Tondonia Reserva Tinto, Lopez de Heredia – Magnum Wine Republic Heros Red Wine

    2004 Viña Tondonia Reserva Tinto, Lopez de Heredia – Magnum

    £9500

    Lopez de Heredia – one of the most venerable producers in Spain– produces traditional, age-worthy Rioja. Their wines are legendary and still made the way they were when the winery was founded over 130 years ago.

    The wine is fermented in very old large oak vats which do not impart flavour. The wine is then transferred to American oak barrels, stored in their cellars for 6 years and racked every 6 months.   Tondonia’s extended ageing process results in a wine that is not about fruit but has so much complexity, so much character that it is impossible to put down. The excellent 2004 vintage has brought additional concentration and personality to the wine, which is still unbelievably fresh.

    Classic notes of leather, cured meat and spice mingle with warm, macerated red fruits on the nose. The palate is mid-weight, but the true beauty of the vintage 2004 lies in the luxurious mouth-feel and intense core of flavour in the wine.
    This freshness, combined with the mouth-coating flavours, suggest that, although a joy to drink now, this is a wine that will hold for at least a decade more. It is, put simply, glorious, traditional, elegant Rioja.
