Chateau (France) 2021 Le Clou Du Pin

Gold Medal Gilbert & Gaillard 2021

This single-vineyard blend of Merlot (75%), Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon, grown in clay and limestone soils in the Gensac commune east of the Gironde, is vinified and matured in stainless steel with no oak contact whatsoever.

The purity of fruit, framed by deft tannins and a refreshing acidity, is just a joy to behold. Medium-bodied and luminous ruby-garnet in colour, the nose is vibrant with cherries and rhubarb, violets and rosehip, with the palate superbly focused on those ripe tannins, fresh hedgerow fruit layered over a fine minerality that runs from start to finish. It’s a seriously tasty Claret.

Enjoy on its own or with light grills or roasts.

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) 2019 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."

Zilzie (Victoria) 2020 Cabernet Sauvignon

Gold Medal - China Wine & Spirits Awards
Gold Medal - Sommelier Challenge
Gold Medal - Royal Hobart Wine Show

Winesale Exclusive Import

Chief Winemaker
"The fruit is the hero that shines through in this fabulously drinkable, crowd pleasing range of amazing quality wines. Specially selected parcels of Cabernet Sauvignon from our own vineyard and some from long term growing partners across Central Victoria were fermented on skins for 7 days to achieve rich color and concentrated flavors. The addition of 7% Merlot fills out the middle palate and brings peppery spice and a long toasty profile. The wine was gently pressed and aged on French oak for 10 months for balance and a sweet
toasty finish. Laser sharp fruit with a nose that jumps out of the glass. The beauty is this wine has wonderful structure and backbone that doesn’t knock you over, it’s classically elegant and deliciously enjoyable."
