A A Badenhorst Family Red 2016

'The 2016 Family Red Blend is a blend of 71% Shiraz, 13% Grenache, 11% Cinsault and 5% Tinta Barocca. It has a very pure bouquet, quite floral and intense, with dark cherries, black plum, warm gravel and light truffle scents, the 80% whole bunch completely disguised. The palate is medium-bodied with quite grippy tannin. There is good backbone here, quite dense but well defined with a chalky, slight austere finish, partly because Adi now undertakes more aging in concrete. Give this a couple of years in bottle.'

A A Badenhorst Family Red 2015

The 2015 represents a milestone for this wine - the 10th vintage Adi has made - and probably the best so far. You can overlook the Family Red in its youth but Adi's Family Red ages really well. It takes time to open up. So decant it and be patient.

St Joseph 'Petit Pere' Aymeric Paillard 2015

The vineyards are near Tournon, opposite Hermitage. Aymeric Paillard worked at Delas, where he converted their Hermitage vineyard to organic, and did some work for Stephane Ogier, prior to finding a 4 hectare vineyard he farms organically. Concentrated, fresh and mineral, with taut compact fruit. There is super tight blackcurrant, licorice, savoury wood and garrigue notes and a hint of pepper. Beautiful, fine, old school style.

A A Badenhorst Sk'windjiesvlei Tinta Barocca 2017

'The 2017 Sk’Windjiesvlei Tinta Barocca comes from a seven-hectare unpronounceable vineyard whose name means “gusty wind,” planted in 1962, when this Portuguese variety was becoming increasingly popular in the Capelands. It has a very pure blackberry and briar bouquet with hints of pressed iris and later, just a hint of canned prune. The palate is medium-bodied with black plum, blackberry and light white pepper notes, intriguingly almost Barolo-like in tannic structure, with gentle grip on the finish. Superb.' – Neal Martin Report 2018, 92/100

A A Badenhorst Raaigras Grenache 2017

'20% whole-bunch fermentation. Cherry, wild strawberry, earth and white pepper on the nose. The palate is rich and broad yet not without freshness – dense fruit and fine but simultaneously grippy tannins. Impactful without being gauche.' Winemag.co.za

Tesselaarsdal Pinot Noir 2017

'The Tesselaarsdal brand was founded in 2015 by long-standing Hamilton Russell Vineyards employee Berene Sauls, the wine made by colleague Emul Ross. The nose of the 2017 shows wild strawberry, red and black cherry plus beetroot while the palate displays plenty of juicy fruit, bright acidity and soft tannins, the finish gently savoury. Already remarkably accessible.' Winemag.co.za

A A Badenhorst Ramnasgras Cinsault 2017

'The 2017 Ramnasgras Cinsault comes from vines planted in 1964, the most productive vineyard yet still producing just 3,500 bottles. It includes some 60% whole-bunch fruit and was matured in 4,000-liter foudres. The winsome bouquet features red currant, cranberry and wild rose petal scents, very well defined and pure - oddly enough, almost Burgundy-like in style. The palate is well balanced with fresh red cherry and cranberry fruit and hints of pomegranate, quite mineral-driven and again, very Burgundy-like on the poised finish. This is very promising.' – Neal Martin Report 2018, 92/100

Indaco, Tenuta Sette Cieli, Tuscany 2014

This is becoming not just a top Tuscan wine but an Italian first growth, but still really is a wine for those in the know. A Bordeaux blend of Malbec, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. The pedigree is there in the vineyard. From the next hillside over, you can see Sassicaia’s legendary first vineyard, and Ornellaia, where they make Massetto. Tenuta Sette Cieli also sits above the famous vineyard Ca’Marcanda of Angelo Gaja!. But the best thing is the price remains sane as it’s not actually in the Bolgheri appellation, as no one thought when they drew the Bolgheri boundary that someone would be crazy enough plant above the woods, that are above Gaja’s vineyard. But they have!

Ombrone Cupano 2016

From the outstanding 2016 vintage; this is a Super-Tuscan, made from Cabernet and Merlot. You're getting a sort of Tuscan Pomerol, or St Emilion, but it ages with the grace of the Brunello. It’s the first vintage that has had a small amount of Cabernet Franc added, for a bit of aromatic complexity, freshness and roundness. I suspect Lionel planted Cabernet Franc after his friend, the winemaker from the great Chateau Cheval Blanc, visited. It’s a very accomplished wine, and really superb price for a wine of this quality. This vintage is special, and as usual, the wine will give huge pleasure soon after arriving. For people who have never known great wine, this is the bottle to convince them that there is such a thing, and that there is value in spending up, without spending a fortune.

St Joseph 'Petit Pere', La Vigne des Peres, Aymeric Paillard 2015 Magnum 150cl

Concentrated, but not overly so, fresh and mineral, with taut compact fruit. The aromas are quite closed, but there is super tight blackcurrant, licorice, savoury wood and garrigue notes and a hint of pepper. The palate is firm but supple.

Vignolo Vinding Montecarrubo 2016

Italy's finest expression of Syrah. This is gorgeous, classy, old-school in some ways - so that if you like Bordeaux, Rhone and Burgundy, you would enjoy this, yet it expresses the joy of Sicily. The terroir is in Melilli, an extinct volcano - south of Etna - with limestone, marine fossils. Made by wine legend Peter Vinding-Diers.

Brunello di Montalcino Cupano 2015

The first shipment has almost sold out, but we will be shipping more soon and the wine can be ordered, for temperature controlled shipment in June or July. Please email wine@swig.co.uk with any questions about magnums and older vintages or Rosso or Brunello. Ian D'Agata - Vinous "Broad-shouldered and deeply structured, with lively aromas of red and blue fruits complicated by flowers, Oriental herbs, blue and red berry flavors nicely framed by polished tannins. Dense and thick on the long finish, which features a repeating floral quality. I expect this to improve considerably, expanding nicely, as it ages in the cellar." Ian D'Agata. Tasting date: March 2020 Drinking window: 2024 - 2032 93+ (the highest mark Ian D'Agata has given Cupano) Jancis Robinson - tasted blind by Walter Speller - one of the top rated wines on the vintage Cupano 2015 Brunello di Montalcino 17+ Tasted blind. Mid ruby. Alluring nose of ripe sour-cherry fruit with top notes of sweet oak. Gentle, soft tangy fruit of great length and with great tannic grip on the finish. (WS) 15% Drink 2020 – 2030

Brunello di Montalcino Cupano 2009

One of the most beautiful most sensual wines we've ever drunk. 95pts - top Italian wine in TASTED Journal with Sassicaia. Beautiful vintage for Cupano Brunello. Cocao dusted nose, herbs, gentle deep and round with excellent structure. Fabulous for the cellar though a wine that you can drink now but will be wonderful from around 2016.

Sami-Odi 'Hoffman Dallwitz' Syrah 2017, Barossa, Australia

This is one of Australia’s best kept secrets. This intense, phenomenal, knockout Syrah comes from some of the oldest vines in the Barossa - the gnarled thicket of DW-OLD was sown between 1888 & 1912 with the adjacent ER-27 planted in 1927. The pair reigned supreme amidst the moist and abundant 2017 season, yielding a relaxed and plush expression of the Hoffmann’s deep red earths. Made in cripplingly small amounts this is a wine you wont forget!

Barbaresco Gaja Costa Russi 2016

'The 2016 Barbaresco Costa Russi is ripe, creamy and enveloping, as it so often is, and yet also preserves the super classic sense of structure that runs through all these wines. In 2016, Costa Russi has an extra touch of mid-palate sweetness that gives the wine its sense of immediacy. Succulent red cherry, rosewater, kirsch, mint and dried flowers meld together in the glass. Soft and sensual, with tons of allure, Costa Russi is another winner from Gaja. Time in the glass brings out the wine's density and tannins, both of which it has in spades.' 98 points, Antonio Galloni

Barbaresco Gaja Sorì San Lorenzo 2016

'The 2016 Barbaresco Sorì San Lorenzo is an eternal wine that will need 10-15 years in bottle to truly come around. Sorì San Lorenzo is often a big, virile wine. There is plenty of heft to the 2016, but at the same time, I also find an element of refinement and nuance that Sorì San Lorenzo has rarely, if ever, shown. Black cherry, cloves, menthol, licorice, gravel and incense are some of the many aromas and flavor that meld together in this dramatic and dramatically beautiful Barbaresco from the Gaja family. The Sorì San Lorenzo just explodes on the finish, with an array of aromas, flavors and textures that will leave readers weak at the knees. The 2016 is an outrageously beautiful, vivid wine of real gravitas and power.' 98+ points, Antonio Galloni

Barbaresco Gaja Sorì Tìldìn 2016

'The 2016 Barbaresco Sorì Tildìn is a fabulous, incredibly complete wine that soars out of the glass with explosive structure and vertical lift. The tannins are very much present, but also matched beautifully by the wine's aromatic intensity and overall drive. Dark macerated cherry, spice, leather, licorice, plum and mocha add darker shades of nuance. In 2016, Sorì Tildìn is a bit more brooding and bigger than it often is, and yet all the elements are impeccably balanced. It is quite simply a majestic wine of real grandeur and total class, but it is not obvious. Sorì Tildìn will appeal most to readers who understand what the truest essence of Nebbiolo is all about. In a word: magnificent!' 100 points, Antonio Galloni
