Rymill Coonawara Winery 2015 ‘The Surveyor’ Cabernet Sauvignon, South Australia, Australia For many, Coonawarra is synonymous with quality Cabernet, with their famous Terra Rossa soils, a mix of red clay and fertile loam overlaying limestone, Cabernet and Coonawarra were fast friends who have yet to have a falling out. Rymill is a certified sustainable winery, dedicated to innovative, low impact winemaking and farming, and even have a line of wines that investigate the reaches of sustainable winemaking. The Surveyor is named for John Riddoch Rymill, who led an expedition to Antartica from 1934-37. The fruit was sourced from 35-year-old Cabernet vines, and uses a blend of their best barrels, all new French oak. Despite the full body and firm tannins this is a remarkably elegant wine, all Rich black fruit, cassis, minty mocha and tobacco, and smoky supple oak tannins and flavours. This wine will stay sexy for years to come. Domaine Frédéric Brouca 2017 ‘Clos Sauveplane’ Faugères, Languedoc-Roussillon, France Mourvédre/Syrah This wine goes out to all the hipsters who like it big and spicy! Frédéric Brouca has a Masters in finance and a sommelier certification, but is a largely self-taught winemaker. Brouca and his (Canadian) wife Elaine live a pretty nomadic lifestyle, and try not to get tied down in one place for too long. In 2012 they were fortunate enough to take over their 10+ acre property in Faugères that have been organically farmed for over 20 years now! Fun fact, Faugères has the most organic vineyards of any French AOP! This wine sources it’s fruit from an isolated vineyard of 20-year-old Mourvèdre and forty-year-old Syrah, and is loaded with black pepper, black and blue fruits and gamey notes. This wine overdelivers if you’re a fan of full, dark and elegant wines. Virna Borgogno 2014 ‘Cannubi Boschis’ Barolo, Piedmont, Italy Nebbiolo A descendant of one of the most famous winemaking families in the Langhe region who have had vineyard in the region since 1720. Virna Borgogno was the first woman in Italy to complete a degree in Oenology, and in 2001 the estate rebranded to reflect the major changes Virna and her sister Ivana have made since taking over from their father. The fruit for this wine is sourced from their South-East facing Cannubi Boschis vineyard, which is a mix of clay, limestone marls and sand - planted in 1970. A rich bouquet of roses, truffles, baking spices, dark fruit confections, and toasty espresso. Cellar this for years to come and it will be worth the wait!
