Black Label TPR Tempranillo 2016

Our 2016 TPR appears quite ‘soft’ in the glass. It looks more like a traditional Rioja out of Spain than an Australian Tempranillo.
The aromas on the nose are a medley of savoury spice. Fresh ground nutmeg and powered cocoa lead the way with toasty oak in support. With time in the glass we see the fruit open up and begin to shine.
The palate is quite lively with rich, intense dark fruits, grippy tannins and soft acidity on the finish. There is a ‘meaty’ intensity about this wine giving it quite a savoury edge. Good in the cellar for around 5-7 years.
With those savoury flavours we suggest a dry aged, grass fed sirloin caramelised over hot coals. Pair with charred broccolini & crusty bread.

Regional Series Tempranillo Hilltops 2016

No longer considered an alternative variety on the Australian Wine Scene, Tempranillo has fast become an incredibly popular wine style.

Our 2016 Regional Series Tempranillo is a beautiful garnet red in colour exhibiting aromas of rich cherry pie with hints of cinnamon spice. Like all our Tempranillo’s, we love the complexity that spicy paprika adds.

The palate is firm with a tannic bite balanced by sweet mid-palate blue fruits. The wine has a great length and is ready to be served with a robust food pairing.

To mix things up, replace the traditional Toulouse Sausage in a Cassoulet with a spicy chorizo to get a fantastic match.

Regional Series Sangiovese Hilltops 2018

Never was a wine made that had a greater affiliation to food than Sangiovese, or as the Italians know it, Chianti.

The wine is a bright ruby red in colour and with fantastic aromas of Maraschino cherries and deliciously ripe raspberries it is an absolute delight. Savoury oak with hints of dark chocolate and subtle star anise & Szechuan pepper notes adds further to the complexity.

The palate is medium bodied and incredibly well structured. The tannins are fine and long and that typical acidity we see with is variety gives and incredible length to the palate. Sweet mid palate raspberry fruits provide a freshness and liveliness to this fantastic wine.

Cured meats like Prosciutto di Parma or San Daniele balance of saltiness, sweetness, and fat – ideal for such a wine. A well balanced duck or venison ragu would also be a great match.

Black Label DPJ Chardonnay 2018

An icon of the Glandore stable and from a generous 2018 Vintage this will be a wine for now and tomorrow.

Showing a bright straw hue and a complex nose of fresh French oak, white peach, cinnamon, hints of delicate florals and tease of a bouquet garni. The palate now is compact and tight with fantastic length but as this wine ages you will see its generosity open up with richness and depth. A lemon butter zest and stone fruits drive the palate and linger on for a long time.

This complex wine needs maybe a complex food match. We suggest a Chicken Tagine with preserved lemon and olives

Black Label Ginger-Rose Shiraz 2014

From our Black Label range comes a serious crowd favourite. Marry that with a fantastic 2014 Vintage across all of NSW and you have an absolute showstopper of a wine in our Ginger-Rose Shiraz from the ACT.

Ruby red in colour and exhibiting aromas of intense red fruit, creamy vanilla oak and nuances of spiced fruit cake, there is a lot going on here. The palate is a complete surprise; medium bodied, delicate and silky with soft, fine tannins that are long on the finish. Like all cool climate wines, there is an underlying power that belies its origins. Cellar 8 – 10 years.

Something a bit more challenging to accompany this wine would be a char-grilled radicchio, provolone and red wine risotto.
