Description

The Conebush Syrah from Lomond is a wonderfully elegant, plush wine which reflects the cool Cape Agulhas climate perfectly.  Displaying a distinct richness, this juicy Syrah is wonderfully balanced with appealing notes of
plum, oak spice and white pepper complemented by finely integrated tannins.


The estate is located in the Cape Agulhas appellation of origin, at the latitude 34° 34´ south. Altitudes vary, with some blocks at 50 metres above sea level, while others are located around 100 metres’ elevation, with an unhindered exposure to the sea. Even the lowest-lying vineyards still benefit from the cool maritime winds. This maritime climate
with the fresh sea breezes, ensures that the vineyards are kept cool which results in late ripening, intense fruit with complex flavours and natural balancing acidity. Lomond’s geological formations are unique; the soils are mostly of sandstone and shale origins with the intrusion of granite in sections creating lean, gravelly soils. This marked diversity
of soil types, combined with the valley location creates distinctively fresh wines. The grapes are hand-harvested in the cool, early hours of the morning.

2020 Cabernet Franc Seleccion, Bodegas Rio Del Elorza, Mendoza

Cabernet Franc

The Verum Cabernet Franc Seleccion, Bodegas Rio Del Elorza has classic elements on the nose including wild strawberry, blackberry, pencil shavings and a hint of blackcurrant leaf.  Lovely ripe fruits with a hint of stalky/vegetal character but not too much greenness, instead offering more body and depth of fruit and a slight touch of herbal mint. The full-bodied palate is elegant with firm tannins but a vital balancing acidity. Cedar notes show from the use of French oak and the finish is dominated by bright red fruit and mocha spice.

2020 Chateau Saransot Dupre, Cru Bourgeois Superieurlistrac

Bordeaux Blend

Chateau Saransot-Dupre is a favourably sited 17 hectares property that lies between Fourcas Dupré and Fourcas Hosten in Listrac.  Due to Listrac’s cooler temperatures, Merlot and Cabernet Franc are favoured over Cabernet Sauvignon to form the majority of the blend, helping them achieve optimum ripeness.  Much like Chateau Fourcas Hosten, the wines have improved year on year since 2010 and the property were put on the radar thanks to a certain Robert Parker hailing the 2010 vintage as 'classed growth quality'.  High praise indeed!

Nerello Mascalese

The Nostru range from Azienda Agricola Cortese offer terrific value, expressive wines made with grapes more commonly associated with the slopes of Mount Etna. The farming here is traditional and a nod to when organic production was a way of life rather than an informed decision.
