2015 Guillaume Gonnet Cairanne “Le Brave,” Rhone Valley, France
On Sale $16.99
80% Grenache, 20% Syrah; average vine age of 80 years; grown mostly in limestone and sandy soil. Vinified in Concrete. Great attack with bright red fruits, salty and mineral, super primary with smoked herbs and an extraordinarily long finish.
2014 Kilikanoon Grenache-Shiraz “Mataro,” Clare Valley, Australia
On Sale 16.99
A wine that quickly builds in the mouth, the initial cherry and red fruit flavours further deepening to include spicy salami, tar, black olive and hints of seasoned oak chariness. Characterised by its unique personality and persistence, it presents as a wine of serious ageing potential.
