The Dark Horse strikes once more. Strawberries, sleek yet slightly sinewy tannins, and a rush of cocoa to wind things up. Name me a more iconic duo…. Cantina Tollo Rocca Ventosa Terre di Chieti Sangiovese Region: Abruzzo, Italy Variety: Sangiovese Notes: Sangiovese can be hard to get your head around, but why would you want to get your head around it when you can get it in your mouth and let the grape do the talking? Medium bodied, with some typical Sangiovese sour cherry and even some blackberry and dried herbs. The lads at Range Life have made something unashamedly Australian with great flavour.
Think red berries, sarsaparilla, a herbal tonic edge and some dusty tannins on the palate. Slug this with some of your favourite pizza! Tannic, black in colour with a smoky, charry plum and blueberry pudding profile. Bring on the beef! The Joel Gott wears the stereotype with pride but has put some makeup on. Glossy plums and prunes covered in chocolate, while a little coffee and vanilla creep onto the back palate really rounding out this tasty morsel.
This is almost as hedonistic as it gets and for those who love the old-school style of Barossa reds. Barbera has lived its life to the fullest in Piedmont, going from being unfashionable, to on almost every winemaker's table. A purple fruit box crammed with all sorts of delicious flavours, blackberries and bubblegum with a real fresh grapeyness to it.
This is the real workhorse of Piedmont! Brooding blueberry fruit, plums and a snippet of violets with Christmas spice. Pretty scents of wild strawberries and dark cherries lead the party while an inky liquorice and earthiness give a nice juxtaposition the way Barbera and Dolcetto should do. This is a personal favourite. Every now and then a vintage comes around that lets the winemakers tame the tannins that strangle your tongue and elevate the nose to another level. This possesses the staple Neb smells of tar and roses, but fennel, leather and fresh red cherries steal the show here.
Quite possibly our wine of the year…. Like many grapes, Franc can have many faces, but this takes the form of something lighter and more ethereal. The entire spectrum of light red berries jump out the glass, and the slight grassy or leafy profile, native to Franc, weaves its magic in the background. A scintillating first release. Dark and dense with perfume and bramble leading the charge and a faint lick of cedar hanging in the background. The palate provides refreshing raspberry-like acidity with a rich core of minerality driving the palate.
Superb stuff from the southeast! The Clare might be a cut lunch and a water bottle away for us Adelaideans, but this brings some of the Clare to us! This is timeless McLaren Vale Shiraz. Powerful and plump with an abundance of fruit and smoky wood and vanilla beans and the ever present slightly salty finish that the Vale provides every year. Terrific stuff! The Langmeil style is just so friendly and approachable and the Prime Cut is just another feather in their cap!
Oozing that supple Barossan texture and bountiful array of sweet berry fruit, liquorice and sweet spice, this is one for throwing back with your choice of prime cut! The words look familiar, but the content seems different? Preservative free and no oak! As dark and vibrant as the label suggests with stewed fruits, milk chocolate and kirsch. As every vintage is different, each release is a Zeitgeist, a memory encapsulated in wine. A steal for the price. Private room available and a menu tailored to suit your needs. Please enquire. The pocket sized guide to all your summertime bacchanalian needs.
