Cool climate profile with a warmth in its heart

"Een wijn waarin niet zozeer de spierballen spreken maar die op de meest elegante wijze zijn hedonistische natuur tentoonspreidt. Gestoofde pruime met chocolade zoekt u hier vergeefs, maar sprankelend bessen- en bramenfruit, doorspekt met de fijnste kruiden en specerijen, vindt u er in overvloed. Menuwijn bij restaurant Merlet*.

""It’s become an anticipated wine. Fantastic release. Stunning length, a wide array of flavours, top tier tannin and the (velvety) texture to match. Cloves, nuts, cherry-plum. graphite, woodsmoke. Cool climate profile with a warmth in its heart. I drank a couple of glasses but I was convinced from the first sip. My only real question was whether it was 95 or 96."" (Wine Front, 95/100)

Very attractive blueberries and dark plums here with earthy and spicy aromas, as well as black pepper. The palate is filled with fleshy fruit and has dark-cherry, cherry-liqueur and dark-chocolate flavors in abundance. Long flavors, plush smooth tannins and certainly a richer iteration of this wine.

Deep red colour with a purple tint, excellent colour. The bouquet is spicy, gently vegetal - probably from whole-bunch fermentation - and touches of licorice and dark berry. It's full-bodied and the tannins are ample with a nicely-judged touch of firmness. Peppery throughout. Good length. The texture not as refined as the best of this region perhaps, but very good. Graphite to finish. Excellent shiraz.

Elegant Shiraz is often code for a modest, subdued wine, but in this instance it’s about capturing harmony and balance. Bright flavour is smartly contained within a seamless body, carefully made to measure. A clean acid line down the spine ensures that no jagged edges poke out. Dark plum and cherry notes flit amongst the blackberry and rhubarb. It’s a smooth, confident customer.

Mid to deep ruby, this is benchmark coolish climatic shiraz. Both rich enough to placate those who like power, but finessed and aromatic enough for those drinkers, like me, who seek aromatic pleasure and textural intrigue: violet and nori scents segue to blueberry, bing cherry and a gentle whisper of stemminess. An easy wine to tuck into.
