Wakefield Jaraman Shiraz 2015

Clare Valley, South Australia, Australia

Dark chocolate and sweet black fleshy plums on the nose with a pleasant zing of acidity mid-palate for lots of dishes from tangy meat sauces to grilled meats. More black fruit and mouth-filling roundness. A consistently good producer at fair prices for the quality. Highly recommended. This Australian red wine is a regional blend of Shiraz grapes of about two-thirds Clare Valley and one-third McLaren Vale regions. The wine was partially cold-soaked for 4 days, then aged in 100% new American oak barrels for 11 months. Deeply concentrated and flavoured.

Galil Mountain 2013

Yiron, Upper Galilee, Israel

The 2013 vintage of his robust red wine is a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Merlot, 9% Syrah and 7% Petit Verdot grapes. A lovely red wine with terrific balance. Aromas of mocha, blackberries and spice. Not hugely fruity, but just enough. An elegant wine that’s perfect for dinner parties. This wine spent 16 months in French oak which gives it a toasty finish.

Rockway Vineyards Block 150-183 Riesling 2014

Twenty Mile Bench, Niagara Escarpment, Ontario V.Q.A., Canada

Petrol peach perfection! Love, love, love. Off-dry but the natural fruit sweetness is balanced by the zesty acidity. I am buying a case. Pair with happiness and light seafood.
