BORDEAUX 2016 EN PRIMEUR
This wine is sourced from a single 30 year old vineyard that is divided into 3 parcels at 800 meters elevation in the Almansa region, around the town of Albacete. The grape is Garnacha Tintorera (or Alicante Bouchet), and the soils are chalky, clay-calcareous. The wine is wild yeast fermented with 50% whole grape clusters in 4500 litre cement vats, with soft pigeage and a short maceration of 7 days; then raised in cement for 8 months. The result is a remarkably fresh wine with earthy dark fruit and spice – a great wine to pair with savoury dishes, like roasted meats, sausages, mushrooms, and rice dishes, like paella or arroz negro. 580 cases produced
From the Hakushu distillery in the foothills of Mount Kaikomagatake comes their Distiller's Reserve single malt whisky, a no-age-statement expression, that captures the smoky, herbaceous characteristics of their whiskies. Both lightly-peated and heavily-peated malts were used for this complex and deeply enjoyable whisky. One of two Spring 2014 release from Suntory.
Peppermint, pine and pleasant grassy notes along with cucumber and melon on the nose. Flavours of sweet mint and citrus zest and a waft of smoke appears during the long finish.
Launched in March 2015, this is yet another NAS addition to Suntory's sought after "Hibiki" series. More exclusive than the standard Harmony bottling, it is the first Hibiki created for the global duty free market. A blend of more than ten malt and grain whiskies which are aged in five different types of casks from the Yamazaki, Hakushu and Chita distilleries, Suntory chief blender Shinji Fukuyo was involved in its creation, while production is overseen by the third generation master blender and great-grandson of Suntory founder, Shingo Torii. Beautifully presented in the brand's trademark 24-faceted bottle representing the Japanese seasons.
Bright brass colour shows impeccable purity. Initial pass finds subdued, resinous, woody aromas. Remains frustratingly shy over five to six minutes. Extended air contact finally amplifies the bouquet beyond mediocre, releasing attractive fragrances of dusty cocoa, dates, oak shavings, cinnamon and pepper. Light entry. Medium bodied mid palate expands the flavour range with dried fruits, hazelnut, light cocoa and peppery warmth. Finish finds wood spice and wood shavings followed by a subtle vanilla and honey undercurrent carrying the aftertaste. Improves over time, ending up richer and more robust than most Japanese blends at its level.
This whisky has been made
using a peat from near the 'Valley of the Giants'. Matured in an ex-Bourbon
American Oak cask, Barrel M215 exhibits spice and floral aromas when neat, a
splash of water unleashes malted barley and intense complex smoky aromas.
Limeburners Single Malt Whisky is matured in a 200 litre American
Bourbon Cask and finished in an Australian Port cask. Exhibiting spice and
fruit aromas when neat, a splash of water unleashes malted barley, aromas of
vanilla and port with hints of honey, raisins and warm spices.
This complex and elegant
single malt whisky is distilled in our traditional small batch copper pot
stills from local barley. This whisky is matured in second fill bourbon barrels
and finished in a very old small sherry cask. Exhibiting spice and fruit aromas
when neat, a splash of water unleashes malted barley, aromas of sherry and
vanilla with hints of honey, raisins and buttery caramel. Limeburners Sherry is
a medium coloured whisky with intense and complex flavours, a full taste and a
Bright, deep gold. Nosing hints at bubblegum, toasted cereals and later orange peel - even dried mango? Sedate entry builds into a juicy, fruity malt surge followed by a fresh, mildly peppery and lozenge like finish. Crisp oak rounds the whisky off in perfect balance.
This is a Japanese issue bottle aimed at connoisseurs and collectors.
Nebbiolo grape : These vines are planted in some of the best crus in the Sassella subzone: Minè, Chiesa Sassella, Grigioni-Cà Binaca. The vines are trained with the arched variant of the Guyot system (3500 vines/hectare), on poor, stony, shallow soil, tending towards dryness, at a height of 400-450 metres. 6 tonnes of grapes were produced per hectare. A full flavour, smooth but well sustained, very tasty with great elegance and harmony. Pleasant undertones of prunes and persistent spices.
Mild with fresh fruit. Gold in colour with aromas of strawberry, cherry, Mizunara (Japanese oak) The palate shows raspberry, white peach, touch of coconut. Finishing with sweet vanilla and a hint of cinnamon.
