  • 2020 The Dry Dam Riesling, d’ArenbergWhite Wine

    2020 The Dry Dam Riesling, d’Arenberg

    £1650

    The Dry Dam Riesling 2020 has a delightfully lifted nose, loaded with lemons, limes, jasmine and Granny Smith. The palate displays a wonderful balance between acid and sweetness, giving that Dry Dam hallmark of sherbet-like character. Full of flavour yet pristine and refined. Drinks perfectly well young but promises to age well, developing toasty, marmalade notes for beyond a decade.

    The Name. : In 1992 d’Arenberg’s neighbours built a dam that remained empty, as it was a dry winter. The next year it rained but the dam was jinxed and didn’t hold water. A dry dam was bad news for d’Arenberg’s neighbouring farmers but promises good results for their old, dry-grown, low-yielding vines.

Super fine-grained tannins, perfectly balanced. Very long aftertaste of mulberry, blackcurrant and spice.

  • 2017 The Dry Dam Riesling, d’ArenbergWhite Wine

    2017 The Dry Dam Riesling, d’Arenberg

    £1995

    2017 is a great vintage for the Dry Dam Riesling, named after a neighbouring farmers dam that year after year was either dry or didn’t hold water!   Teeming with white flowers and granny smith, backed by a lovely core of lemon and lime. The sweetness on the palate is tempered by a sustained seam of perfectly pitched acidity. A sherbet-like note is typical of classic Riesling years in McLaren Vale and is unmistakable in this wine. Not a hint of metallic hardness, the mouthfeel is so refined and balanced.  Enjoy the heady yet delicate personality of this wine in youth or confidently cellar it, knowing, with time it promises even greater range and refinement.

  • 2013 HRB Shiraz, HardysRed Wine

    2013 HRB Shiraz, Hardys

    £1995

    In 1865 Thomas Hardy had the foresight to begin blending grapes from different regions, believing that the blending would enhance the different qualities of the grapes. His vision proved to be right and it has since become the inspiration for Hardy’s Heritage Reserve Bin (HRB) range. Hardy’s award-winning Heritage Reserve Bin range pushes the boundaries of winemaking through the cross-regional blending of hand-selected grapes.

    This 2013 Shiraz is blended with grapes from McLaren Vale, Clare Valley & Frankland River.  A rich and sumptuous brooding style of Shiraz; dark fruits, cassis, chocolate, pepper, mint and vanillin spice from the French oak. In the mouth, these flavours continue with a fleshy, rounded, densely-flavoured wine showing complex chocolate, ink, tar, and black fruits, with rustic firm tannins and influence of spicy oak.

  • Moxie Sparkling Shiraz, Dowie DooleChampagne & Sparkling Wine, Sparkling Red

    Moxie Sparkling Shiraz, Dowie Doole

    £2100

    MOXIE [mok-see] noun: vigor; verve; pep; self confidence; force of character; determination or nerve.

    MOXIE is a non-vintage Sparkling Shiraz – A blend of various vintages including a Shiraz base that contains vintages as far back as 1996 to give extra depth and richness. The Shiraz in the Moxie have been used like a solera system with a portion of the older material used in the blend to give the wine depth and wonderful richness on the palate. This base has then been blended with Shiraz from the 2017 vintage to add lift, palate weight and richness.

    This is a quintessential Australian Sparkling Red wine best served cold. It is rich, dark and dangerously delicious and has a full-bodied, velvety palate exhibiting flavours of blackberry and cherry with hints of chocolate and spice. While rich, the wine is never cloying, finishing with vibrant acidity and some lovely drying tannins to offset the semi-sweetness of the wine.

    Though rich, complex and delicious to drink now, if cellared carefully the Moxie Sparkling Shiraz will drink gracefully for 8-10 years.

    2015 The Dry Dam Riesling, d’Arenberg

    £2250

    The 2015 Dry Dam Riesling is named after a neighbouring farmers dam that year after year was either dry or didn’t hold water.

    Jasmine and orange blossom, along with lemon and lime characters leap from the glass. The sugar-acid balance from this fine vintage is impeccable. While both are present, they manage to meld together creating a mouth-watering yet supple sherbet character, which finishes dry and mineral, not cloying in the slightest.

    A pleasure to drink right now, this wine will evolve elegantly for many years to come.
