Tasting Notes

Each case contains two bottles of the following wines:

Maçanita Red 2018, Douro, Portugal

Brother and sister winemakers Antonio and Joana came together to make wines under the Maçanita label, their family name. This is a blend of touriga nacional, sousão and a field blend of old vines, all from the Cima Corgo, and is native fermented with twenty days on skins before being split between neutral barrel and tank for one year. Lovely wild plum, blueberry, sapid thorns, earthy cassis, sour cherry on a tighter, bright palate, with softly grippy tannins holding the sides. Stony and fresh, ideal drinking now.

Alpha Box & Dice Tarot Grenache 2019, McLaren Vale, South Australia

The late-ripening grenache soaks up the McLaren Vale sun, expressing it in Tarot through concentrated cinnamon- cherry compote, ripe tayberries and raspberry jam, with an earthy, savoury currant underneath. The generous palate is cushioned with soft, plush tannins and is seasoned with ample pink peppercorns. Partial whole bunch, this undergoes a short maceration and ferment before time in stainless, keeping the tannins low and fruit youthful and bright.

Assuli Ruggiero Syrah Terre Siciliane IGP 2016, Sicily, Italy

From Sicily’s clay and limestone laced soils, this Syrah was fermented and rested in stainless to preserve freshness. Sunripened black cherry, and violets are seasoned with ample black pepper, flooding a fuller, dense palate, finishing with a lick of anise and cool mint. Smooth and primed for drinking now.

Señorío de P. Peciña Tinto Crianza 2014, Rioja, Spain

Bodegas Hermanos de Peciña is firmly planted in traditional Rioja, one of perhaps a dozen of producers adhering to the tenets passed down through generations. This includes long aging in mostly neutral American oak, regular open-air racking by hand (called trasiego), and then further aging in bottle often well beyond the specifications required by the DO. Founder Pedro Peciña had over two decades of working in Rioja Alta before opening his own Bodega in 1992. This wine is a blend of Tempranillo (95%), Graciano (3%), and Garnacha (2%), from various calcareous-clay vineyards, and vines averaging 40 years old. The wine ages 2 years in used American oak barrels, and 1.5 years in bottle prior to release. Classic cherries, toasted coconut, cigar, and spice floods the medium palate, and fine-grained, grippy tannins, to a persistent finish.

The Atom Cabernet Sauvignon God Particle 2018, California, USA
From vineyards sourced from California’s North Coast, this is a deeply ripe, smouldering Cabernet Sauvignon, rich with tobacco leaf, cassis, and liquorice. Tannins are plump and wood-built, shouldering the sun-ripened weight of this Cali Cab. Drinking very well now.

Selvapiana Chianti Rufina DOCG 2017, Tuscany, Italy

Chianti Rufina is the smallest appellation in Chianti, extending across 750ha. This is 95% Sangiovese, joined with tips of Canaiolo, Colorino, and Malvasia Nera from well-drained, dry and stony, north and north-west facing vineyards. These 15-40 year old vines grow in medium density clay and limestone at 200-300m. Fermentation and maceration occurs in stainless over 25 days with native yeast, before aging in 25hL French casks for 12 months. Made with organically grown grapes.
