Angove `Wild Olive' Shiraz 2015
Hand crafted in the Angove small batch winery, the berries were gently de-stemmed with a large proportion of whole berries included. A three day cold soak was followed by fermentation during which the juice is gently pumped over the skins to extract colour, flavour and tannin. The finished ferment was then basket pressed to ensure the gentle handling continues as the delicate flavours are coaxed from the grapes. Maturation in small oak for 12 months prior to barrel selection and assemblage preceded minimal fining and light filtration pre bottling.
ASEG PRICE $140/dozen (RRP $264)

 

Hugo Wines Sauvignon Blanc 2016
Clear, pale with lime/lemon accents. Clean, fresh aromas of passionfruit, lemon citrus with a hint of grassiness. Clean, zesty, dry style with abundant lifted, fresh fruit characters of Kiwi fruit and passionfruit characters with lemon and lime to add a lively edge. Well balanced acid completes the palate structure supporting the cooler style that is achievable with the vineyard’s location and being harvested in the cool of the nights to maintain quality. Serve with: Grilled calamari with herbs and crisp shallots.
ASEG PRICE $135/case (RRP $216)
