2015 Arcanum Valadorna Red Wine, IGT Toscana
The wine exhibits high-toned aromas of ripe black cherries, vanilla bean and cedar. With bright acidity, the wine expands quickly on the palate. Plush tannins carry through the center with a fine, tingling finish. The palate shows flavors of tart cherry pie, dried red berries and black licorice, with a long finish of white pepper, dusty roses and stony minerality
2017 Capensis Western Cape, South Africa Chardonnay
In 2017, Stellenbosch was the epicenter of our world, Fijnbosch provided the core intensity with flavors of citrus, orange blossom, toasty brioche and peach. The E. Bruwer vineyard in Robertson adds the rich core of ripe peach and apricot with a full rounded mouthfeel. The final two vineyards utilized were Kaaimansgat and Vleiplaas. These two vineyards added complexity to the wine. The Kaaimansgat vineyards adds the minerality, which helps define the back palate. While Vleiplaas brings a hint of herbal character, providing the acid core giving the Chardonnay a delicate balance that is refreshing and tightly wound.
2017 Hickinbotham Trueman McLaren Vale, Australia Cabernet Sauvignon
2017 was a cooler year in McLaren Vale. The carryover from the 2016 rains into a perfect spring and then a cooler ripening season was ideal for Bordeaux varieties that need time on the vine to develop phenolic flavor rather than sugar, while maintaining acidity and structure. The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon shines this year with dusted cocoa, blackberry, anise; a middle body that is velvet to the touch with a tannin backbone that carries this wine for minutes after you have swallowed.
