Les Granges 2006, A.C. Haut Medoc
£19.95More info & buy Les Granges 2006 possesses a subtle garnet rim lending an indication to its maturity. The nose is typical of mature claret with cigar box, earthy spice, cedar and black fruit. This vintage requires a short decanting period to coax the best from the palate. Once decanted expect suave black fruit; mainly blackberry and black cherry with a peppering of tobacco. The fruit is still fresh and vibrant yet the fairly significant bottle age has enabled the tannins to melt lending a wonderful elegant texture.
Rare, unusual, and award winning case
£129.95More info & buy This case contains two limited edition wines from Apaltagua; a white Rhone blend from the cool San Antonio valley, and a single vineyard Carignan from 100 year old vines from the sun soaked Maule valley. There's also representation from the vastly underappreciated Timorasso grape, which offers a wonderful weighty palate with waxy stone fruit, lime zest and hazelnut, from Piedmont in Italy. The incredibly rare Tenacity from South Africa offers the most interesting Riesling experience you are likely to have. Tenacity Riesling has been aged in new French oak which offers toasty spicy notes alongside the piercingly aromatic and zippy character of Riesling. Staying in South Africa, we have the limited edition Integer Cabernet Sauvignon, of which only 6 barrels of this juicy, intense and smoky Cabernet were ever produced. Then finally we have included an old vine Grenache from McLaren Vale which offers layers of smoky, meaty characters with a core of black raspberry and kirsch.
