Spatburgunder Weiler Schlipf CS, Weingut Claus Schneider, Baden 2014

A wine with the dew still on it. Lovely youthful red cherry, strawberry and blackberry fruit and a subtle wisp of smoke, dried orangepeel, sandalwood, gamey, new leather (Johannes's CS range is partly matured in new barriques) notes emerging with time in the glass. I'm transported to Gevrey tasting this. On the palate, the tannins are present but fine enough for the wine to be very enjoyable now. Laying down would be wise, however. The wine is structured but subtly so, with a firm backbone of acidity - from a combination of the limestone soil and the cooler 2014 vintage - suggest ageability of ten years at least. Johannes management of the flavour profiles and the clear delineation of quality levels is remarkable.

Barbera d'Alba Sandrone 2014

Antonio Galloni, vinous.com "The 2014 Barbera d'Alba is a solid wine for the year. Rose petal, bright raspberry fruit, mint and sweet spices are nicely pushed forward. Bright and medium in body, the 2014 is a bit angular and lacks the seamlessness of the very best years, but it is nicely done. This is about as good as it gets in 2014 for Barbera. Drink 2017-2020"

Chorey-les-Beaune 'Les Bons Ores', Maratray-Dubreuil 2016

Chorey-Les-Beaune is a pretty modest appellation, underrated in the firmament of Burgundy’s vineyards, but this is precisely the kind of wine that can score big in great years. In Chorey-Les-Beaune ‘Les Bons Ores’ Maratray-Dubreuil we have a wine made by a brilliant winemaker that punches above its weight every year. This is one the best-value wines in Burgundy. Add to that the conditions of a great vintage and you really have a treat for the price. You don’t often see me recommend red Burgundy but Maratray-Dubreuil has nailed it.

AA Badenhorst Brak - Kuil Barbarossa 2015

100% Barbarossa from the only officially verified vineyard of the grape variety in South Africa. It is a grape variety that was thought to have been lost in the 1950's so finding an original vineyard of it is incredibly exciting! This is an intriguing and different style of wine, dark but with bright fruit and big tannins. Highlighted by Tim Atkin as on of his standout wines from the New Wave South Africa tastings.

Barbera d'Alba 'Vigna Pozzo' Renato Corino 2014

We've managed this year to get one whole barrel! Only ten are made. Somtimes we get none, such is the demand for this delicious and great value Piemontese wine. A barrel equates to 25 cases. Pozzo, meaning water well, is an excellently sited special cru in La Morra planted with 60 year old vines. It ages deliciously. When young you would be best decanting. You can expect stewed plums, espresso, roses, pine; it's plush and smooth with lots of fruit. You can age it for ten years or more and it's as it best between 4 and 10 years.

There are flavors of white flowers, spicy notes of laurel, garrique, the aromas of earth after the rain and of resin mixed with kirsch, red berries, bilberries and blueberries. It is a wine that is at the same time powerful and elegant, with a beautiful intensity, supple tannins, long finish. It can definitely be drunk young, and you can enjoy berry notes and it can be easily be kept a decade in a good cellar.

Petrichor Estate 'Les Trois' Syrah, Sonoma Coast 2011

Petrichor has an amazing aroma of black olives, herbs, graphite with a touch of game. It’s a blend of 70% Syrah and 30% Grenache, a typical Chateauneuf du Pape blend. It’s got lovely flavours and complexity; a bit of soul going on. This is a real boutique effort, made by a big collector of wine who found this small cool climate high altitude vineyard and got one of his favourite winemakers and a top viticulture guy to make the wine.

On the palate the fruit is fresh and crunchy, with the muscat evident in the flavour of macerated raisins. This is a super concentrated mix lifted by layers of spice and fresh fruit. 14.6%.

From the oldest Grenache vineyard in South Africa which has only 12 rows of vines! It has floating aromas of wild strawberries, lavender and rose petals. A hint of supple leather and dried cranberries and bracken – on the nose its all about the perfume than the weight. The palate is very polished and weightless with cool mineral undertones, cloves and wild herbs. The finish is long and silky. A tip top old vine Grenache!

It has lots of zippy, tangy, juicy raspberry flavours backed up by a savoury meaty undertone. Drinking well now but leave it a little longer if you want a bit more of those leafy, mushroomy characters famous from Pinot Noir.

A wine with a more than unique history and story. The small village of Tesselaarsdal in the Overberg, 24km North East of the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley is named for East India Company settler Johannes Tesselar. On his death in 1810, he bestowed the land to his freed slaves and owner/winemaker Berene herself is a descendant on one of those very slaves. If you look closely at the label, you can make out 2 people walking across the mountain. This is Berene and her Grandmother.

Gorgeous ripe aromas, cassis, plums and chocolate and smart wine-soaked oak, open knit, generous and classy but not too much; full and smooth and mouth-filling on the palate. This is divine wine that is very much to be enjoyed and drunk now. Of course, you can cellar it too, for 5 to 10 more years, but there is so much to enjoy now and in the next few years. Made from 77.5% Merlot / 22.5% Cabernet franc. 14.3% alc.

Keep Carignan, California 2015

With dark fruits, olives, herbs, balsamic and something Italian - this is a super find. Starts with a lovely fragrance, a hint of rose and brambles - not heavy but signs of depth. As it opens in the glass (or decant it) you begin to get dark fruits, nicoise black olives, herbs and balsamic. It develops and fleshes out becoming like a lovely Southern Rhone crossed with slightly Italian notes. This is a unique, truly fabulous wine. Jack Robert's mentor is Steve Matthiason, one of the big names in California who is encouraging a move a way from the big rich wines to more traditional styles.

Indaco, Tenuta Sette Cieli, Tuscany 2013

Indaco 2013 is from Tenuta Sette Cieli, an up and coming producer on the next hillside to the famous Sassicaia. It is a blend of the Bordeaux varieties. They are just out of the Bolgheri zone, on the Tuscan coast, South of Livorno, but if Bolgheri was re-drawn, they would almost certainly be within it. It is higher altitude than all but the highest of Sassicaia’s original vineyard, so the style tends to be a bit fresher than some of the more typical Bolgheri wines. 2013 is an important vintage for Sette Cieli as it was the one when the current owner took over the reins from his mother and took the wines in a new direction with a new winemaker . They are a producer to look out in the future. They share the viticulture team with Ornellaia.

Keermont Steepside Syrah 2012

Planted in 2005 on the steep midslopes of the Helderberg Mountain range, Steepside Syrah sits at an elevation of 300m. Vines grow in rich red clay loam soils with high levels of iron and quartzite originating from the peaks above. The combination of these deep granitic soils and the intensity of the sunshine on the North facing ridge allows the vineyard to produce wines with power and structure, while the spicy herbal aromatics can be attributed to the elevation and the pristine fynbos flora that surround it. All grapes used in producing our wines are grown on Keermont Vineyards. Small parcels of grapes are specifically selected according to ripeness, harvested by hand and vinified separately. This process is carried out gently and naturally in open top fermenters using traditional methods only. This wine spent 20 months maturing in 2'nd fill French oak barrels before being bottled by hand without filtration on 25 November 2013. Only 867 bottles were produced.

Renato Corino Barolo Arborina 2013

An amazing cru that sits a few metres to the east of Rocche and just above it on the hillside. You get, from the slightly more easterly exposure compared to the fully south exposed Rocche, a slightly more lifted aroma with brighter aromatics and a hint more savoury and spice. This is exceptional wine that ages really, really well. I enjoy drinking Arborina on release, but it continues to reveal more complexity, depth and class over the years. Probably at it's peak 2022-2025.

Amarone Monte Santoccio Nicola Ferrari 2013

Using grapes that have been partially dried on mats from harvest until January and aged for 30 months in French and American 500l oak barrels, we think this is one of the most complex wines produced in Italy. It is not like the massive more porty versions of Amarone, which can also be lovely, rather it shows real elegance. As it ages you really get a sense the terroir and the grapes of Valpolicella, which can be masked by the sweetness and power of the more powerful, 'modern' styles.

Porseleinberg Syrah 2015

Since their 2010 maiden vintage, this Syrah has had a meteoric rise to fame. Owned by Boekenhoutskloof's Marc Kent and with incredible winemaker Callie Louw at the helm, this has been dubbed as a “Cape Cornas” by Tim Atkin – it’s an extremely special and age worthy wine. Every year, the scores seem to get higher and higher, with the 2014 being chosen as the top SA red of the year by Neal Martin and given 96 points. I’ve got a tiny drop of the ’15 in my glass right now and it’s pretty spectacular with an incredible fruit concentration laden with blackberries and soft spice and mallow. Probably the most concentrated so far, with that incredible schist and slight oyster shell character coming through as well. This is one to age, that will bring you joy for many years to come.

Ombrone Cupano 2012 (Organic)

Behind many of the great figures of the past, stands a famous mentor. Behind Brahms, stood Beethoven; behind Boswell, stood Dr. Johnson. Lionel Cousin, the winemaker at Cupano, was fortunate enough to be mentored by the man regarded by many as the greatest winemaker of all time, the late, great Henri Jayer whose Burgundies, if you can find them, sell for more than those of Domaine de la Romanee Conti. Privileged to hold such a unique legacy, Lionel continues to pursue Jayer’s legendary attention to detail in the vineyards. Indeed, if Lionel Cousin isn’t chasing wild boar off his land (they love his Sangiovese!), he is attending to each bunch of grapes with a pair of nail scissors. Working organically and using a horse to plough between the rows, Cousin is making some of the most honest and authentic wines in Montalcino.

Barolo Rocche dell Annunziata Renato Corino 2013

Considered a Grand Cru of the commune of La Morra. It’s completely South facing and is typically the fullest and ripest tasting of Renato Corino’s wines. It’s usually delicious when young, but this is a bit more reticent and closed than in some years. I think that’s no bad thing and a reflection of using less new oak than normal. It will develop in complexity and richness over the years. It really does need another 4 or 5 years to open up, but it’s special and a great wine from Renato, from this excellent vintage.

Scipio Tenuta Sette Cieli 2013

This is a micro-cuvée only made in the best years – just 300 cases – to see what they can do with 100% Cabernet Franc. It’s pretty damned lovely – like Indaco, it needs more time – and you can tell by it being open for 24/48 hours that it’s got excellent potential, and it will just get better and better. It’s a bit more ‘right-bank’ St-Emilion style perhaps than the ‘left-bank’ Médoc. Like Indaco, it’s also another very special wine.
