BORDEAUX 2016 EN PRIMEUR

1 2
Chateau de L'Aumerade Cotes de Provence Rose 2016
Pale pink with shades of salmon. The nose is classic 'Southern France'. Literally sunshine in a bottle. The perfect rosé for each day of your life. To be enjoyed chilled as an aperitif, or with grilled meats and salads.
Marion Amarone Valpolicella 2013
Amarone is a wine that consists of 100% dried grapes. They are picked of the vine then dried on straw mats for minimum 3 months. This concentrates the flavours and offers a truly unique blend of dark fruit flavours with warm spices. An Icon wine of Italy. 10% of local grape Croatina has been added to this fulsome 16% alcohol blend of Corvina, Corvinone and Rondinella, giving a darker, polished, more compact coffee bean and richly succulent by dry wine.  
Mount Mary Triolet 2015
The Triolet, first produced at this vineyard in 1987, was inspired by the whites of Graves, Bordeaux. The vineyard is planted to 65% Sauvignon Blanc, 25% Semillon and 10% Muscadelle. Each variety is picked at optimum ripeness, and is usually fermented separately. The characteristics of optimum ripeness are different for each variety. We pick the Sauvignon Blanc after the strong herbaceous flavours have gone; the Semillon when the acid is not too harsh; and the Muscadelle when the flavour intensity peaks. In the winery we use mostly older barrels for this wine, with the entire production being barrel fermented. We use grape solids to give the wine texture, and lees stirring to add complexity and body. The Triolet is typically aged for 11 months, by which time the overt fruity flavours have diminished, and complex aromas start to develop. Sam Middleton
Vocoret 'Le Bas de Chapelot' Chablis 2015
Pale yellow. Cool menthol minerality dominates aromas of chalk, wet stone, lemon zest and resiny herbs. Seriously rich, dry, suave wine with cool stony minerality, a note of lemon and the pliancy of the year. The very long, savory aftertaste calls for time. Boasts lovely grain and density for village wine. STEPHEN TANZER, Vinous Media
Domaine du Bagnol Rose Cassis 2016
This rosé comes from a handful of parcels in the tiny appellation of Cassis, a stand alone appellation within Provence, that totals seven hectares of vineyards planted in clay and limestone soils, on a gentle north-northwest-facing slope. Grenache-dominated, with smaller percentages of Mourvedre and Cinsault. Like the Cassis Blanc, the wine is taut, fresh and slightly saline. The winery makes only a small quantity of this, making this extremely hard to find, but its deliciousness makes it highly sought after.

The 2016 rosé has a pale cherry color with a slight copper tinge. It is full-bodied and well structured, with fresh red berry fruit, tart apple skin, and notes of spice and dried herbs. As usual, it is a blend of 41% Grenache, 33% Mourvedre, and 26% Cinsault all of which is direct-press juice.   The color is a bit lighter than last year’s, but the wine has a bit more power behind it.

Mount Mary Pinot Noir 2015
The Pinot Noir vines were sourced from Western Victoria in 1971. This material was acquired before individual clonal selections were considered, and as such, our older Pinot blocks are a mix of many clones. A visiting French ampelographer once told John Middleton that there were in the order of 30+ clones in our original Pinot block. Subsequent plantings of Pinot on this site have been selections from the original block, and the clonal selection has been somewhat refined. There are also some newer blocks of Pinot  planted (as of 2008) to American rootstocks and are of specific clonal material, namely MV6 and 777. In the winery the emphasis is on simplicity. The Pinot typically spends 10-12 days on skins, in open-top fermenters, with short cold soaks and no post-ferment maceration. This is followed by 16 months of barrel maturation consisting of 25% new oak barriques. Minimal, if any, filtration is carried out prior to bottling. 
Mount Mary Quintets 2015
The vineyard is planted to Cabernet Sauvignon (50%), Merlot (25%), Cabernet Franc (15%), Malbec (5%) and Petit Verdot (5%). The percentage of each variety that goes into the final blend changes with the season as factors such as fruitfulness and fruit set vary. The greatest influence we have over the quality of this wine is deciding when to pick each variety. This determines not only the flavours but the quality of tannins, and the acid and alcohol levels. The Quintet is largely fermented in static tanks, where it spends around 12-14 days on skins. This is followed by 22 months of barrel maturation, with 25% of the blend in large format oak (1500L or larger), and 30% in new barriques (225L).
