What a gorgeous wine, showing all the benefits of cellaring at the winery and due to being a cancelled export is very limited. We have bought all the remaining stocks and it will simply delight you! This is without doubt the best Galafrey Shiraz we have ever offered to you.
Dark red-purple in colour. Black cherry, plum and some fleshy characters on the nose. Medium-ripe palate showing good fruit characters married to fine oak before nice long finish. A very nicely made Shiraz showing the cooler spectrum characters. Fruit sourced from the Frankland River Region 50km north of Mount Barker, the characteristically cool climate of the district ensures slow ripening of the grapes, which also allows for the development of rich flavour and quality grape juice.
A sparkling clarity, pale gold in colour. The very first impressions are of bright, fresh mornings. It is reminiscent of spring blossom such as hawthorn. They lead into more fruity notes such as summer apple and pear, then citrus, with hints of warm toastiness. The next impression is lively and fresh. The citrus notes take on a certain maturity. There is passion with gentleness, lightness with spontaneity. Ideal for drinks with friends, cocktail and garden parties, nights spent enjoying every moment until dawn’s early light, informal dinners, and surprises. All manner of choice is permitted! A wine that celebrates joie de vivre, and the pleasure of getting together with the people we love.
Throw some of this Monster into a glass and it will reveal a deep purple colour. A quick sniff and the aromas are lifted dark cherry, black pepper and spice with floral notes with ripe blackberry and plums coming together in a crescendo of flavour and aromatic heaven. There are forest fruits coupled with spice and a touch of tannin that caresses the sides of the mouth. These soft tannins are a great compliment to the fruit and come to a crescendo on the finish.
I know I am on a winner when the Burgundy freaks and staff panel rave about a wine from the minute it arrives. Yarra Valley Pinot Noir from a great vintage, priced at around 70% off just gets them into a frenzy. When it socks them a pouch in the nose, delivering terrific breadth of fruit weight and tannins, length and line, we have to get pretty excited. This wine is single estate picked and a reserve wine.
The weather is finally starting to warm and you want a white with a bit more body than an aromatic style like a straight Sauv Blanc. The addition of Semillon is the key! This wine is fresh and bright pale yellow with green tints. Aromas are in the tropical spectrum with some herbaceous notes evident.
Full flavoured palate and an excellent acid structure. Honeydew and mango dominate the flavours. This wine compliments food beautifully by adding value, not being an overbearing aunt. Serious quality early picked Semillon showing lovely lean minerality has provided the key building blocks here to a wonderful foodies wine! A youthful blush of tightly packed lemon and grassiness with some punchy enthusiastic Savvy displaying all the herbaceous characteristics you would expect.
Find yourself a nice sunny spot, sit back, relax and enjoy the moment. It has generous oak intensity with ripe fruit characters of melon and peach with buttery vanilla cream, shortbread and hazelnuts. It’s got a gorgeous appearance with hints of gold and a seductive bouquet of tropical fruits and honey. The palate is full-bodied with silky oak tannins and integrated acid and alcohol sweetness.
"92 POINTS. A fragrant blend of red fruits and plenty of spice; the palate displays a sweet core of bright red fruits, with a soft and generous conclusion; a well constructed blend." - James Halliday.
I could write some better points now I have tasted this wine on a few occasions and would add - "depth, structure and lingering mouthfilling tannins that keep you sucking your tongue well after the last drop vanishes."
A spicy little Shiraz number from a low yielding vintage with all the hallmarks... Dark fleshy cherries, berries, pepper and spice. The Majority of fruit from Langhorne Creek really shows varietal strengths and are just in your face from the first sniff. Mature vine fruit is evident by hearty earthy/plum chocolate characters. A huge lick of sweet fruit and some lovely balance with oak and overall length combined with nice tannins make this a pretty sensational deal.
Flavours of vanilla, almond, toasted bread appear successively. The perfect balance between acidity and richness gives a good potential for aging. Long after taste, with a touch of honey and ginger bread, a local speciality. founded in 1877 by Jean Bouillot, a wine and spirit merchant, Louis Bouillot specialized in the Crémant de Bourgogne making. With over 130 years of savoir-faire helping to guide them, they continue to specialize in Crémantde Bourgogne
Rosato is unlike any other wine that they make. Usually the grapes dictate what kind of wine they want to be for Mark Shannon, but with Rosato, he is in the drivers seat. The flavors and colors are already in mind when he goes out looking for the vineyards that fit that profile. The inspiration came from the ancient tradition of field blending Primitivo with Aleatico.
Pour a glass of this new vintage: there is a vibrant pink that caresses the eyes and a floral nose that delights the palate. This year the color of Primitivo was so inviting and the Aleatico has such an intense perfume that we felt the perfect balance was to blend 75% Primitivo and 25% Aleatico. The result is a gorgeous wine with aromas of honeysuckle and carnation, flavors of ripe cherries and strawberries. We are sure that you will enjoy this wine with the body and muscles of a red wine and the delicacy and perfume of a white wine.
"The vines have an average age of 30 years, which goes some way in explaining the power of the fruit, barrel-fermented in new and pre-used French oak and matured for 11 months; it's a strange thing, but the climate doesn't seem to give chardonnay the brightness for top points." - James Halliday.
Free run juice was put to 30% new and 70% seasoned French oak for fermentation and ageing for 11 months.
"91 Points. Impenetrable colour; deep and dark in fruit and structure, this is a more of everything style of wine, and while very concentrated, exhibits life and generosity; big boned, charry and ripe. For lovers of big Shiraz." - Ben Edwards, Australian Wine Companion.
