  1. New Duran Cava Gran Reserva Brut by Ramon Canals 2015 Duran Cava Gran Reserva Brut by Ramon Canals 2015

    $299.88

    Ramon Canals

    Penedès (Spain), Spain (Spain)

    12 x 750 ml

    Breads, Caviar, Cured Meat, Ham, Rich Fish, Soft Cheese, White Meat


    Pale straw-yellow with fine and slowly rising effervescence. This Cava shows fresh white fruits, lingering citruses, and tropical fruits. White floral aromatics. The nose of this wine is one that we would expect for such a long aged cava. It is very toasty with dry fruit aromas. A background that is intense with some aniseed aromas and total freshness. This sparkling wine Grand Reserva Brut Cava from the Duran vineyards is complex, well-balanced, and fresh. Ripe fruit entwine with creams and fresh toasted notes. Well-integrated effervescence and excellent acidity that lend this cava a lively expression that is very pleasant. The finish is long and sweet and seduces us to drink more.

    "Produced from the estate's oldest vines, this is a worthy reserve. This wine shows impressive depth and intensity, with powerful fruit flavors led by Satsuma orange and Meyer lemon. There's a touch of spice and an underlying minerality. A sensational value."

    Ruby red in colour with garnet reflections. The nose is intense and persistent with a spicy bouquet, and hints of chocolate and tar that complement the vibrant dark fruit character. On the palate, it is very well balanced and displays great structure and tannins.

    Cherry Block Central Otago Pinot Noir 2019

    The extreme cold night and long summer days of New Zealand's Central Otago region are the conditions that serve to produce the vivid, rich and spicy Cherry Block Pinot Noir. Ripe cherry, raspberry are complemented by spice and mushrooms.

     

    "Youthfully expressed and delightfully lifted, the wine shows sweet raspberry, cherry, floral, subtle spice and almond characters. The palate delivers lovely weight and roundness together with fine texture and bright acidity, finishing long and refreshing. At its best: now to 2023."

    90 Points - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, April 2020

     

    Pirinoa Road Chardonnay 2018

    "Wonderfully fruited and inviting, the bouquet shows golden peach, rockmelon, baked fig, vanilla and cedar characters. It is equally impressive on the palate with excellent weight and persistency. The wine offers fabulous complexity backed by creamy mouthfeel and refreshing acidity, finishing long and delicious. At its best: now to 2022." 

    94 Points - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, November 2019

     

    Hawk's Bay Chardonnay 2018

    A fragrant bouquet bursting with stone fruit and melon with hints of lemon peel.  Rounded texture with rich vanilla and nutty toast are balanced by the refreshing acidity and long finish.  A perfect match with rich seafood, white meats and salads.

    "Fresh sappy nose packed full of leafy bramble berry fruits, subtle hint of reduction and a basaltic mineral undertone. Finely embroidered texture, chalky dry tannins and a smokey graphite finish."

    "Vibrant straw-green. Liquid minerals, jasmine, green apple and thyme on the enticing nose. Then rich and multilayered but also bright and fresh on the zingy mouthfeel. This outstanding, nuanced Müller-Thurgau finishes long, clean and mineral. Not likely to be the longest-lived Sass Rigais made by this estate, but will provide wonderful drinking over the next five years or so."

    12 x 750 ml

    Cured Meat, Ham, Rich Fish, Scallop, Soft Cheese, White Meat


    Produced by one of the oldest winegrowers in Pouilly sur Loire who produces some of the finest wines of the region. Perfectly exemplified by this stunning Sauvignon Blanc which features wonderful balance, fullness and freshness with superb citrus aroma. Notes of orange blossom, lime peel and traditional Pouilly Fume gun-smoke on the nose, which blends seamlessly with the slatey, stoney minerality of the palate, all underpinned by classic Loire acidity. Crisp, refreshing and downright delicious!

    "Wonderful aromas of dried flowers to the cooked apple and some lime. Green papaya too. Medium to full body. Fruity and minerally finish."

    6 x 750 ml

    Cured Meat, Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Roasted Vegetables, Veal roasted


    "La Sauvageonne is a mix of individual lots of syrah, grenache, mourvèdre, and carignan growing among the basalt, schist and red soils known as ‘ruffes’ in the highly acclaimed sub-appellation of Terrasses du Larzac. The appellation is located in the northern reaches of the Hérault département, a region known for its significant temperature amplitude and its distance from the Mediterranean sea and proximity of the Causse limestone ridges, all of which cool down the hot summer nights. The nose is intense, reflecting the black fruit base and the strong garrigue that fills the air in the vineyards. The attack is youthful, but the tannins sweet. Look for licorice, orange peel, black plum, black raspberry, and meaty flavours that persist from front to back. Demeter certified biodynamic and capable of ageing a decade with no problem."

    94 points - Anthony Gismondi, GismondiOnWine, Oct 2019

    "The black cherry reduction and raspberry tart flavors are nicely polished, with black tea, herb and spice undertones leading to a long, supple finish that offers bitter chocolate and mineral details. Syrah, Grenache, Mourvèdre and Carignan."

    "The 2016 Curtimenta is all Alvarinho aged for nine months in used French oak. It comes in at 13% alcohol. Sourced from 20+-year-old vines, this is made with fermentation on skins, resulting in more color and more tannins. The oak seems almost irrelevant here, as the structure of the wine and its concentration overwhelm and counter the wood. That's not to say there is no oak impact, but it is impeccably balanced. Then, as the winery suggests, it finishes with a bit of tannic pop. There is remarkable grip on the finish, good acidity and that tannic pop. The next day (when it seemed 50% better than on the first day tasted), this was tight, focused and intense, perhaps the best Curtimenta yet. It's very fresh, the fruit lifted and focused, despite the wood, and it is the acidity that seals the deal for this wine. It simply slices and dices the wood into splinters after it's open for a day. In 2015, its high-end sibling Parcela Única was the bigger star, if only by a bit. This year, it's pretty even, but the styles are radically different. This has greater purity and intensity, while its sibling has a lusher, richer feel. Curtimenta handles the wood far better (it usually does when young, and it receives less aggressive wood treatment), at least now. Whenever I thought the wood was becoming assertive, the acidity and fruit came right back up. The Parcela Única may be even deeper and more like a white Burgundy than a Vinho Verde. Choices, choices. Buy both! In time, the balance of both may change for the better as they pull in the wood even more. That's not as important with the Curtimenta, given less wood impact, but even the Curtimenta could benefit from a year in the cellar. Needless to say, they should age rather well (although Parcela Única edged into the lead on the third day after opening, making me doubt again which was better). It's a very different vision of Vinho Verde, showing what the region can do when its top producers perform at the top of their game."
