Catch the Fading Shadow of Winter
A cold winter night, a delicious hot dish of herbs roasted lamb chops, accompanied by a glass of lusciously fulfilling and heart-warming red wine; the flavours of herbs and lamb chops is intensified by the peppery, fruity and spicy character of the red wine… This wintery image of our dining table is slowly fading as Spring begins to awaken… We would like to invite you to savour the tastes of these four wines, hoping that they bring you warmth during the last days of this frosty season!
Gaelic Cemetery Celtic Farm Shiraz Cabernet Malbec 2012
Robert Parker 90
Focused and with colours that rival a purple gem, this medium-to-full-bodied red wine from Gaelic Cemetery in Australia is filled with the scents of blackberries and pepper with traces of tobacco and herbs. Fruity with chewy tannins and a dynamic acidity, it has a long-lasting herbal finish.
Gaelic Cemetery Riesling, Clare Valley 2014
Robert Parker 92+
With a yellowy green hue, this Riesling is filled with the revitalising perfumes of apples, pears and peaches with hints of bread and yeasty hunts. It is elegantly light-bodied, dry and crispy, with a fresh finish with a mineral touch.
La Ferme du Mont Côtes du Rhône Première Côte 2013
Robert Parker 88-90
This French red wine has an understated elegance in its complex scent and taste. A dark ruby colour with the aromas of raspberry, spice and pepper, it is medium-bodied with a rich depth, lots of ripeness and a long-lasting dedicated finish.
La Ferme du Mont Châteauneuf-du-Pape Côtes Capelan 2010
Robert Parker 98
Dark purple-ish red in colour, this Châteauneuf-du-Pape has authoritative complex texture laced with silky tannins. Profoundly led by the scents of black cherries jam and liquorice, it has a notable purity that paints the imagery of locust flowers. It is a full-bodied red wine that is naturally seductive, with a finish that lasts remarkably long.
