Perez Cruz Single Vineyard La Higuera Block 2011

Perez Cruz Single Vineyard La Higuera Block 2011

  • A 5-star creation from Perez Cruz, exclusively blended for us by world-class winemaker, German Lyon.
  • Produced from a single vineyard, expertly crafted into an enticing, thrillingly integrated whole.
  • Intense, spicy, complex, sensuous - an ideal wine to pair with hearty dishes of roast, grilled or bbq'd meats.

The latest stunning creation from German and his team, fast becoming Chilean masters of the grape. There is a depth of fruit on the nose with the flavours all playing a black card - blackcurrant, blackberry and black cherries are all distinctly noticeable. Layers of vanilla spice and hints of mint mingle with the delicious, ripe black fruit. Everything is wrapped in a blanket of silky tannins. Echoes of the Bordeaux style, but with the thumping, fruit core only the best New World winemakers can produce.

Winery: Vina Perez Cruz

Country: Chile

Vina Perez Cruz is a multi award winning winery receiving rave reviews from customers and wine writers alike. Their immaculate vineyards can be found in the Maipo Valley, long regarded as Chile's premium red grape producing region. Their vines are planted on a variety of soil types that imbue the grapes with distinct flavour characteristics. They firmly believe that every bottle of wine produced carefully reflects the 'terroir' of 'Maipo Valley.

Focusing on red wine production, Cabernet Sauvignon is at the heart of everything they do. Its thick skin and late ripening nature is a perfect match for the climate. They've planted several new varieties over the years so we will be working as closely as possible to bring new and exciting wines from these fast becoming Chilean masters.

Plantagenet Mt Barker Shiraz 2009

Plantagenet Mt Barker Shiraz Australian Red Wine

Type: Syrah / Shiraz

A great Shiraz - the sort that really gives you a tingle on the tongue and a warm rosy glow in the stomach. Jammy flavours at the forefront and a peppery kick to finish things off. The kind of wine that would floor a side of beef in seconds.
