Julicher 99 Rows Pinot Noir is the younger vine wine from Julicher Estate in Martinborough. From the 2017 vintage, this wine has a balance of dark plum fruit flavours and earthiness, with a real savouriness added to the wine from the few years bottle age.
El Burro Garnacha is a juicy red fruit-driven wine that is a bit like a softer Shiraz in a lot of ways. Plenty of perfumed red fruit flavours and soft ripe tannins, try with a red pasta sauce and fettuccine.
Muritai Syrah is a Hawkes Bay Syrah. Soft red fruit, herbs and classic black pepper aromas flow into ripe dark berry flavours and soft ripe tannins. Great red wine that is very versatile.
Peter Lehmann “The Barossan” Grenache is a South Australian red made from a grape we will likely see more of in coming years from Australia given the way it copes with hot growing conditions. Ripe and juicy, it has a core of generous red and black plum fruit flavours balanced really nicely with soft tannins.
Beach House Merlot Cabernet Franc is yet another great wine from a consistently excellent Hawkes Bay producer. This is a Merlot dominant wine with enough Cab Franc to lend it the varietally typical silkiness, which means the already interesting palate of dark plum, raspberry and warm spice is even deeper.
Chalk Hill Luna Shiraz is a relatively recent release from a long-established winery. It is designed to be fruit-forward and approachable in youth, and it has delivered on that brief. Red and black fruit flavours are added to with coffee, chocolate and spice accents. Try with lasagne.
