Alto Los Romeros (Chile) 2022 Cabernet Sauvignon

88 Points - Descorchados
4 Stars & 88 Points - Candice Chow, Raymond Chan Wine Reviews (2021 vintgae)

Intense and lively ruby red color. On the nose are rich fruity aromas of plum and cherries, accompanied by toasted notes and coffee from French and American oak aging. On the palate it is concentrated, with soft and elegant tannins and a pleasing final persistence. Cabernet Sauvignon was the first varietal that Luis Felipe Edwards produced from their site in Chile's Central Valley.  A deliciously ripe Cabernet, bursting with black fruit flavour. Try this with Grilled lamb cutlets.

Ata Rangi (Martinborough) 2021 Celebre

A full and enticing nose of aromas; blackberry and boysenberry tempered by spice notes of cardamom and cinnamon and a more complex savoury hint of sweet cedar. A seamless blend of tannins, ripe fruit and oak carry the wine to a satisfying and balanced finish.

The 2019 Célèbre is a blend of merlot 45%, syrah 40% and small portions of malbec 10% and cabernet franc at 5%. This is a wonderful release of Célèbre, the significant vine age of 30 years and over, contribute to the concentration and complexity of this wine. Impressive on release, this wine will continue to evolve further and reward cellaring"

Pegasus Bay (Waipara) 2020 Merlot Cabernet

94 Points - James Suckling
94 Points - Cameron Douglas MS
94 Points -Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
4.5 Stars - Michael Cooper

 
The wine has a deep, ruby colour. The merlot has provided purple plum flavours and a plump, fleshy, mid-palate structure. Cassis elements and a backbone of mouth-filling, ripe tannins come from the Cabernet Sauvignon. Small portions of Cabernet Franc and malbec donate an ethereal, lifted bouquet, the latter giving a whiff of rose petals, as well as filling out the structure and adding to its length. It is a big, dense, chewy wine, which expands in the mouth and has a lingering, spicy after-taste.

Commercial description
"Bin 389 was often referred to as ‘Baby Grange’, in part because components of the wine are matured in the same barrels that held the previous vintage of Grange. First made in 1960 by the legendary Max Schubert, this was the wine that helped forge Penfolds reputation with red wine drinkers by combining the structure of cabernet sauvignon with the richness of shiraz. Exemplifying the judicious balance of fruit and oak, Bin 389 highlights the generous mid-palate Penfolds is known for

GRAPE VARIETY Cabernet Sauvignon (53%), Shiraz (47%)
VINEYARD REGION McLaren Vale, Coonawarra, Barossa Valley, Wrattonbully, Padthaway
WINE ANALYSIS Alc/Vol: 14.5%, Acidity: 6.6 g/L, pH: 3.67
MATURATION 12 months in American oak hogsheads (37% new)
VINTAGE CONDITIONS McLaren Vale enjoyed a relatively mild growing season.

COLOUR Black core, purple rim NOSE A kaleidoscope of aromas. First noted, sweet pastries. Blueberry danish and chocolate croissant. Sugar dusting. The fruits of the forest are quick to emerge, fresh blackberries and mulberries dominant. There is the faintest suggestion of formic acid, Max Schubert would approve. Dried bay leaf, pink peppercorns and black cardamom add spicy intrigue. The imagination conjures thoughts of rare roast beef with black pepper crust, seared venison loin, coal dust, cocoa powder and graphite. With a swirl, aniseed/licorice notes become pronounced. PALATE A flawless integration of the two varietals, neither dominating but working together in harmony. The aroma descriptors deftly match the palate. Flavours of black fruit and red fruit compote abound. Cocoa powder sweetness adds weight to the substantial mid-palate. There are plenty of savoury flavours to balance out the sweetness, with cold sliced salted beef, roast lamb cooking juices and cured pastrami. The tannins are fine, reminiscent of oolong tea, providing plenty of structure. The delicious fruit is married seamlessly with the creamy American oak. A fine seam of acid provides a refreshing lift on the finish. Very approachable now, but with plenty to offer down the track."

Te Mata Awatea (Hawkes Bay) 2022 Cabernet Merlot

5 Stars - Michael Cooper
5 Stars - Sam kim Wine Orbit
96 Points - Cameron Douglas

First made in 1982, Awatea continues to represent the best of the classic Hawke's Bay cabernet/merlot blend. Floral aromas with intense blackberry, currant and dark plum flavours lead to a rich, supple palate with a sustained finish. Awatea will continue to evolve in bottle for ten years from harvest.

winery note
" A deep brilliant crimson with an underlying amethyst hue, Awatea ’21 immediately offers up concentrated blackcurrant, blackberry, dark plum, cocoa-powder and cedar with a subtle marine note in the background. The ripe dark and red fruit is fresh and varietally defined, enlivening the wine with layers of brightness, persistence and appeal. This depth of fruit, balanced by the bright, ripe, acid tension, carries right through to its fine dry finish. The most concentrated Awatea ever this ’21 is a delight."
