Wine Review

CHATEAU KIRWAN

2016, Margaux

Deep purple colour, with exciting aromas of dark fruit (blackberries, blueberries, dark cherries, plums), tobacco and herbaceous notes. The palate is rich, with fine tannins and a long finish. Delicious with pancetta risotto, rack of veal with chanterelles, cheese (Saint Nectaire, Brie de Meaux, aged Gouda), and a raspberry tart.

KUMEU RIVER

Maté's Vineyard Chardonnay, 2017, New Zealand

Pale amber colour, with ripe white fruit and buttery aromas. The palate is crisp and refreshing, with notes of white peaches, candied orange peel, popcorn, butterscotch and gingerbread on the lingering finish. Ideal with asparagus, seafood, curried lamb, exotic fruit salad.

SCHRADER CELLARS

RBS Cabernet Sauvignon 2017, USA

Dark ruby red with powerful aromas of red and blue fruit. Full-bodied, with silky tannins, and developing flavours of raspberries, plums, blueberries, blackberries, liquorice, oak, black pepper, caramel and anise, on a lingering finish. Enjoy it with fine charcuterie and terrines, rib of beef with ceps, cheese (white Cheddar, Organic Stilton, aged Comté)

TENUTA SAN GUIDO

Sassicaia, 2016, Italy

Profound ruby colour, with rich and elegant aromas of bright red fruit, liquorice and balsamic tones. The seductive palate is dense, yet harmonious with sweet balanced tannins and a lively acidity coupled with notes of raspberry, cherries, blackberries, plums vanilla, tar and liquorice on the lingering finish. Perfect with fine charcuterie, duck breasts, chocolate cake.
