Barbera d'Asti 'La Bricca' Rinaldi, Piedmont 2009

While Barolo may be the king of Piedmont, its little brother, Barbera, cavorts around the region like a playboy prince, constantly reinventing itself and turning up in a variety of unexpected disguises. It’s a fiendishly difficult grape to pin down and we have tasted it in all it forms, from the very dark and brooding, to the light and ethereal. This one clearly looks up to its big brother, displaying similar flavour characteristics of warm plum skins, loose tea, leather, kirsch, tomato leaves and cherry wood. Where Barolo has muscle and power, this capers more nimbly, with its naturally high acidity carrying those delicious autumnal flavours within a lighter and more forgiving frame. 14% alc.

Langhe Nebbiolo "Il Crutin" Manzone, Monforte d'Alba 2013

Il Crutin is made with 100% Nebbiolo sourced from vines of the Castelletto and Gramolere vineyards in Monforte d’Alba. Because the winery has no ‘minor’ vineyards to use for an entry-level, approachable nebbiolo, the family decided to declassify parts of the Castelletto and Gremolere vineyard to make il Crutin. Il Crutin (‘small cellar’ in Piedmontese dialect) is an old house located on the Gremolere hill: hand-carved in the rock in the 1800’s, purchased by Giovanni Manzone in 2000. Dark plums, coffee beans and aniseed. Cranberries with a bit of leather and a long dry finish, with a berry tinted finish.

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 '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.

Valpolicella Ripasso Monte Santoccio Nicola Ferrari 2015

'Ripasso' is a Valpolicella style which involves reusing the pressed skins of the grapes that go into Amarone during fermentation, which adds structure, power and complexity. Aged for 24 months in a combination of Slavonian oak botti and French barriques, this is one of the most interesting as well as enjoyable Ripassos you're ever likely to try. Is is just one third of the price of his mentor's, and I would say as good, as I think there is great purity in the wine.

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.

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.

Another stunning wine from the seemingly unstoppable Tom Carson, rightfully sweeping up awards such as the Best Pinot Noir Trophy at the Royal Queensland Wine Show 2015. 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.

Casal Santa Maria Ramisco, Colares 2006 - 50cl

This is one for the wine geeks out there. Glorious, frankly quite mad Portuguese red from 'the most ridiculous wine region in the World'. Think vineyards not more than 300m from the Atlantic ocean, in the sand dunes, on the westernmost tip of Continental Europe. No vine should survive here, but somehow a small number of Ramisco (red) and Malvasia de Colares (white) do, and they produce some insanely brilliant wines.

Clos du Clocher, Pomerol 2011

Truly gorgeous Pomerol from a producer next to Trotanoy, Vieux Chateau Certan and La Fleur Petrus who has stepped up their quality and is now making wines of very high quality but it's still available at a very fair price. 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.

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

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. TASTING NOTE This is an intense wine with a bright scarlet colour. Pure grapey aromas are complimented by red spices, herbs and lavender. The palate has a gentle entry with subtle spicy fruit flavours filling the mid palate. The tight structure gives the wine a succulent dry finish with lingering flavours of red fruit, anise, liquorice and a mineral saltiness. Drink 2014-2024

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.

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.

Kalleske 'Eduard' Old Vine Shiraz, Barossa Valley 2015

Deep purple-black in colour. Initial aromas of blackberry, cherry cola and fruit cake. Then musk spice emerges along with chocolate and a hint of raisin. The palate is faultless with impeccable balance of fruit, tannin and oak. Rich dark fruits lead the way with dusty oak adding support and a fine backbone of natural tannin meshing the layers together with continuity. Right to the end this wine entertains, with an almost endless finish. Will cellar for at least a decade, probably closer to two.

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.
