Intense garnet red with light orange reflections. Ripe red fruit and vanilla. After the first couple of years in bottle evolves into hints of leather, tobacco and some small dark fruits. Full bodied with great structure and elegant tannings, thanks to the time spent in barrel.
Cannubi is the apogee of Barolo. Aromatically intense, aristocratic and with superb persistence, it shows notes of blackcurrants, liquorice, cinnamon, mint and tobacco. Elegant and seductive, with a great structure and a silky texture, this celebrated cru is noted for its extraordinary completeness and personality.
For many this is the essence of The Drift Farm. The nose shows an intoxicating explosion of super ripe mulberry, black cherry, ripe plum, white pepper and fynbos herbs (especially Buchu). The palate echoes this intensity and unctuousness with rich, black mulberry, a hint of creamy caramel and savoury, wild fynbos herbs adding a nice salty note. The tannins are comfortable, but present, offering a warming structure that balances the mocha vanilla of the wood. This wine benefits from being decanted a day or two before consuming. It will age gracefully for at least 20 years if stored correctly.
A mature Brunello showing a decisive and fine bouquet of hints of vanilla, deep red cherries, raspberry and a touch of liquorice. Elegant and well textured, with a warm, smooth palate that leads to a long, sustained finish
A touch of Viognier in the blend adds floral nuances to the blackcurrant and spicy notes of the Syrah. Round and textured with good structure and smooth, silky tannins, this wine has great finesse and a long, persistent finish.
This wine is straw yellow in colour with green nuances. On the nose, there are intense aromas of citrus and passion fruit, with herbals notes of sage and basil. The wine has excellent balance in the mouth and showcases a rounded, fuller style of Sauvignon Blanc and the freshness that is characteristic of this region. The finish is long and lingering.
This wine is bright ruby red in colour with an intense bouquet of raspberries, wild strawberries and redcurrants, intertwined with sour cherries that are typical of a cool vintage Sangiovese. The bright fruit flavours mingle with scents of violet and Mediterranean herbs. Elegant and distinguished, the palate reveals its impressive structure with a lively freshness and a centered, fruity core. Fine-grained tannins lead to a fragrant and deliciously savoury finish.
This wine is precise and fills the palate with flavours of toasted brioche and tangerines. It is incredibly concentrated with refreshing acidity and is perfectly balanced. It is drinking well now but will also develop favourably with further bottle ageing.
This Pinot Noir has notes of red and dark currant and sweet forest strawberries, brought forward by a quite powerful minerality, with hints of violets and peony rose. On the palate, this wine is rich, deep and balanced.
Deep and dark garnet red color. On the nose the important aromatic structure is immediately perceived, with notes of fruit jam, red fruits, tobacco, vanilla, spices, coffee, tobacco. On the palate it is sensational, a structured, full-bodied wine; a velvety wine, perfectly balanced between its organoleptic characteristics.
This wine is a study in structure and refinement. Deep garnet in colour, it expresses aromas of boysenberry, cedar and clean earth. Well‐delineated, featuring finely sculpted layers of pipe tobacco, leather, dried herbs and wet slate. Structured, polished and precise tannins are accented with vanillin over an intense 60‐second finish.
A brilliant garnet red, the nose carries hints of strawberry, cerise, red fruit, rose, violet and a touch of liquorice. On the palate it is full of energy, power and precision with clean, healthy tannins.
A concentrated Chassagne-Montrachet showing purity of fruit and linear minerality, this has a superb sense of harmony and an everlasting finish.
