The 2020 Liberator Francophile Syrah is a partial whole bunch ferment which gives a wine that is full of vibrant red-black fruit, with an aromatic nose reminiscent of Saint-Joseph lillie. The result is a thrilling young red that is free of the constraints and manipulated flavour profile that come with barrel-ageing. This is a very pure and naked example of the Syrah grape. Dangerously drinkable on release, it could be expected to age for three to five years in bottle.

The Liberator wines are the brainchild of English Master of Wine Richard Kelley (the self styled ‘Liberator’), who has a multitude of amazing contacts in the South African wine industry.  On his travels Rik noticed that many of the wineries he visited had small parcels or barrels of wine that they weren’t quite sure what to do with, either because they didn’t fit the wineries flavour profiles or they were little side projects that the winemaker had embarked on and didn’t know where to place the wines.  Rik took it upon himself to ‘Liberate’ the wines and produce a series of limited Episodes to ship to the UK.  The prjoect has been such a success that they now produce a non-limited edition Syrah made at De Morgezon winery.

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.
