Elegant nose intermixing black fruits and mild spices. On the palate, very silky texture, abundant raciness. Noticeable substance with a fruit-driven aftertaste.
Du Pin is located in the Entre Deux Mers region of Bordeaux. The 2009 is easily the best wine they have yet produced. The aromatics of sweet cherries, black currants, subtle herbs, cedar, and spice box combined with a long, rich attack and mid-palate result in an impressive, supple-textured Grand Vin de Bordeaux to drink over the next 1-2 years. Delicious and great value for money
Just the right amount of wood aging gives this ripe wine great style. It has juicy blackberry fruits to balance the spice and toast character, offering richness and a full, fruity character finished with acidity.
A warm, richly flavoured red with aromas of plums, dried fruits and sweet spices. On the palate it is generous with good concentration of ripe plum and black cherry fruit and hints of dried figs -all balanced by a silky smooth mouthfeel and fresh acidity. Easy drinking.
Ruby red in colour, the Chianti Riserva has a distinctly fruity bouquet displaying dark cherry fruits that are balanced by hints of vanilla and cinnamon. On the palate, the concentrated black fruit flavours are supported by balanced tannins, with spicy undertones that lead to a long and full finish.
Intense crimson with youthful purple hues. Generous, mouth-filling sweet blackberries, raspberries and plums cover the palate with lashings of sweet spice. Firm but fine tannins and dark chocolatey nuances continue throughout the lengthy palate with a youthful finish.
Deep purple-crimson. An immensely complex, dark, brooding character, red and black fruits, pepper and spice, with liquorice and tar on the nose. Lingering black fruit on the palate, with pepper seasoning. A mix of red and black berries complimented by vibrant pepper and leaf notes. Elegant tannins and lingering acidity help extend the finish and the overall balance is impeccable
A very well crafted blend of Syrah, Carignan and Grenache reflects the Swartland's affinity with Rhone varieties. Where David's Grenache is immediately appealing, this blend has a brooding meaty complexity to it that will need more time to reveal its locked in secrets. Supremely integrated tannins frame the luscious blackcurrant and mulberry fruit, fynbos and subtle vanilla. This is a wine to watch.
