Product Description

This limited release wine is created from the fusion of two exceptional parcels of 55% Shiraz and 45% Cabernet Sauvignon. This classic blend is matured in the finest oak crafting an intriguing unison that captures the essence of the vineyard and highlights its unique varietal expression.

Vintage Overview
2013 was a very good season with predominantly mild, dry days. Yields were generally low and this did result in some excellent parcels of fruit being harvested. Vine-balance was carefully monitored, resulting in fruit that demonstrates the vibrancy and fruit-derived characters that we strive for in our wines. By all accounts it was a textbook vintage.

Tasting Notes
Deep inky purple in color. Aromas of blackberry, mocha, mint and spices. Lush, ripe palate dominated by black fruits, cherry and chocolate. An expansive palate with black fruits and nicely balanced by oak.

Made with the greatest dedication and care, select parcels were matured in new and seasoned French and American oak for up to 20 months prior to being selected for this blend. Individual barrels from our family estate that best demonstrate the intensity of our fruit, balanced by integrated oak were selected for the final blend, which was then bottled with minimal filtration.

Pairs well with venison, ribeye steak, lamb.

Review:

55% Shiraz and 45% Cabernet Sauvignon. Intense purple-crimson colour, and a notably complex array of fruit aromas and flavours augmented by 18 months in new and used French and American oak. Plum cake, dark chocolate and gently chewy tannins are all part of a complex jigsaw puzzle. Screwcap. 14.5% alc. 

-2017 James Halliday Australian Wine Companion 94 POINTS

Gorgeously complex and sensual, the wine shows crème de cassis, sweet plum and spicy oak characters on the nose with nuances of game and tobacco. It’s mouthfilling and expansive on the palate with layers of delectable flavours and silky texture, making it immensely appealing.

Winery: Morambro Creek

The Morambro Creek Estate
The property was founded in 1994 by the Bryson Family who first settled in the Padthaway region in 1955. In the early 1990's the Brysons decided to take the plunge and plant vines on the property. Initially their plan was to sell these grapes to the big wine producers but after a few vintages, the desire to see the fruits of their labour turned into their own wine, was just too great for them to resist. In 1998 they held onto a small selection of their fruits and sent it to the Cape Jaffa Winery to be made into wine. Morambro Creek was born, the name coming from the creek that meanders through the property.

“Rich, opulent reds from Padthaway that will repay a short period of cellar aging.”
- Anthony Dias' blue pocket guide to wine 2006

The Morambro Creek Vineyards
They farm 420 acres, separated into two plots each of 210 acres, about 7-8 kilometers apart. The vines enjoy a cool Mediterranean climate with plentiful winter / spring rainfall and the limestone subsoil that provides the excellent drainage. The grapes varieties cultivated here are Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz.

At Morambro Creek, their sole objective is to produce the best wines possible from their unique vineyard site. Planted on own rootstock and located in the Padthaway valley which is comprised of rich Terra Rosa soils their estate vineyard benefits from excellent sun exposure producing grapes of optimum flavor, color and tannin development. The warm summer days are moderated each evening by coastal winds that cool the vines and result in a longer ripening period. This extended period allows for the grape tannins and seed to fully ripen prior to being harvested, thus creating wines that are rich and supple on the palate.
Their pursuit of great wine can also be seen in the meticulous management of their vineyard. Th
ey strive for low crop yields and small grape bunches of intense flavor, and whilst they employ the latest technology in the vineyard to help them achieve vine balance and reduced vigor, they harvest when the fruit reaches full flavor development.

Trefethen Family Vineyards Dragon's Tooth Red is made from 49% Malbec, 27% Petit Verdot and 24% Cabernet Sauvignon.

Our Nana, Catherine Trefethen, was Welsh. Her twin loves of wine and family were the original inspiration for our estate in Napa Valley’s Oak Knoll District.

This wine opens with expressive aromas of cherry and blackberry accented with notes of fig, tobacco leaf, and sarsaparilla. Full-bodied and balanced, the integrated flavors of ripe dark fruit lead to a lush and abundant finish.

 Winery Chef Chris Kennedy enjoys Dragon‘s Tooth with earthy and rich cuisine. He suggests pairing it with our Creamy Mushroom Pasta. The complementary flavors, textures, and intensity of both the dish and the wine are stunning.

Blackberry, prune, raisin, leather and tar aromas are full but refined on the nose. On the palate, this is tight and finely focused.

Preludio de Sei Solo Ribera del Duero Tempranillo 2018

Preludio de Sei Solo Ribera del Duero Tempranillo is made from 100 percent Tempranillo.

The grapes for this wine come vineyards in the villages of La Horra, Gumiel de Izan and Moradillo from 12 to 80 year-old vines.

Displaying a good vibrant deep cherry red color with fragrant, clear notes of cherry drop and violet there is a beautifully unadorned yet brooding quality to this; it feels deep, vinous and vibrant, flecked with bright red fruit notes, sweet earth and a darker, more spiced character on the finish.

Review:

"Graphite and minerality take charge of this dynamic 100% Tempranillo from vines ranging between 20 and 80 years old. Juicy blackberry soon emerge and blue floral notes grab the tongue, part of the concentrated array of dried fruits and flora. Elegant to the core."

"The estate’s top wine is the 2016 Lirac Secret de la Grange, a 90-10 blend of Grenache and Syrah that never sees oak.

Trapiche Terroir Series Finca Orellana 2015

Trapiche Terroir Series Finca Orellana is made from 100 percent Malbec.

The history of Trapiche begins in 1883, in a small vineyard called El Trapiche, in the district of Godoy Cruz, Mendoza, where the grapes for the first fine wines were grown. With more than 130 years of experience, Trapiche has earned its place as a pioneering brand in the introduction of French vines, the production of varietal wines, the import of French oak barrels and the use of stainless steel tanks. True to its origins, today Trapiche is in a continuous quest for the latest best practices .Led by Daniel Pi, Director of Winemaking, Trapiche's winemaking team permanently strives to improve winemaking practices by exchanging experience and knowledge with winemakers from other wine producing countries such as France, the US, Australia and New Zealand.


With a deep garnet red color, this Malbec expresses aromas of red fruits such as cherries and currants, and intense balsamic notes with hints of fresh herbs. In the mouth, it is sweet and broad with a great concentration of fruit and soft, ripe tannins. It has a long, persistent and elegant finish.

Review:

El Peral may not be on the radar of many Argentine Malbec lovers. But if you take a look at Descorchados, you will realize that here we are fans of this area, a place of gentle hills, streams and trees. This vineyard was planted in 1946, and today it delivers deliciously liquefied fruit, with hints of cherries and cassis, but above all violets and blackberries in a long and deep body. Give it at least ten years in the bottle.

Kynsi Pinot Noir Precious Stone Stone Corral Vineyard 2013

The Stone Corral Vineyard is planted on a southeast slope on the west side of the Edna Valley which has an east/west orientation opening up to the Pacific Ocean from Morro Bay and Pismo Beach. Approximately 120 to 300 feet above sea level, the climate is strongly influenced by the ocean providing ideal temperate growing conditions for Pinot Noir. Early spring warming, mild summer temperatures and late arriving cold fall temperatures and rain provide a long growing season for the development of rich color, concentrated and complex flavors. Soil profiles vary between blocks from sand, sandy loam, loamy sand, pebbly sandy clay loam, all fine angular blocky , including decomposing sandstone layers and numerous fossil rocks. The soils are well drained and marine in origin, resulting in an elegant Pinot Noir with extraordinary attributes.

 

This gem is a blend of a few precious, select barrels hailing from the finest blocks of Stone Corral Vineyard. Offers blue-toned fruit on the nose and a pretty bouquet of black raspberry, sandstone, marzipan and wild lupine flowers. Opulent, yet delicate on the palate, with velvety layers of cola nut, cherry, dried herbs and pecan sandie cookies.
