Blood of Jupiter 2021 Sangiovese

NOSE: Cherries, savoury earth, warm spices.

PALATE: Shy at first, it begins to unfurl with the guarded tannins gently softening to show the more vulnerable fruit core. Backed up by savoury flavours and a thirsty acidity.

PAIR: Roast porchetta or eggplant parmigiana.

CELLARING: 10 years

"It's no wonder they named Sangiovese after the god Jupiter. It really is a wine that can appeal to all; tannins? Yep, got those. Sweet berry fruits? You betcha. Lovely, mouthwatering acidity to help it age? Damn straight! I still remember this batch coming into the winery, fermenting as beautiful caviar-like grapes - producing wonderful sweet aromas perfectly balanced with the savoury earthiness. It's a charming little wine, if a little shy at first, so give it a little time to unfurl in the glass and it'll show it's true colours."

J is for JNR 2022 NEBBIOLO

NOSE: Creaming soda, rose petals, red currants and sandalwood.

PALATE: Succulent cherry fruits slide on a dynamic wave of tart acidity, lapping on the shores of sandy tannins that build into a playful castle of structure.

PAIR: Veal or porcini and sage pasta.

CELLAR: Up to 15 years

"Fleet-footed, full-throttle; JNR plays the room with vibrant ruby fruit and repartee at the ready. Sour cherry pie stolen from the window sill, this approachable, easy-drinking red is a must-try offering bound to leave its mark. 

Tight acid rounded by dusty tannin gives this Nebbiolo a chewiness not always present in other showings of the varietal, with a nose boasting rhubarb, cassia and raspberry licorice. Taut and structured, JNR paves his own way. Stubborn? Maybe. But like his namesake uncle, he gets results."

X 2022 Carignan

NOSE: Pink flowers, red berries and a slight hint of jamon.

PALATE: Light and delicate yet backed with a chalky structure that safely houses the perfumed fruits.

PAIR: Jamon, grilled sardines or a heirloom tomato salad.

CELLARING: 10 years

Carignan is a lovely and unique variety. Most often used in blends to add colour, structure or acidity, it also stands beautifully on it's own, using it's rustic charm to seduce and enlighten. This is my favourite Carignan we've made, using less whole bunch than we have in the past which allows for the earthy fruits to be expressed with that slight herbal note adding a complexing element without being the dominating character. I'm not sure what it is about Carignan that I find so alluring, but every year it's a wine I just love to make.
