Wine on tasting in Weybridge 18.02.17

18 February 2017

I have picked 2 wines from our rather groovy new stacks.

From the Chardonnay stack, the rather delicious:

2014 Hawksdrift Chardonnay, Marlborough, New Zealand

A lovely rich fruited polished style that has a bit of a Burgundian nod.

From the Grenache/Shiraz Blend Stach (Admittedly not the snappiest named stack but heyho!) the sensational:

2012 Faugeres, Domaine de la Sarabande £15.99/bt

Coming from from my friends Paul and Isla down in the wilds ofFaugeres.  Blackfruit, spice and with a complexity of soils that gives this wine such an interesting character - got a great review from the Wine Advocate too.

Exhibiting red fruits, spice-box, licorice and cured meats, the 2012 Faugères Tradition checks in as a mix of 60% Grenache, 25% Carignan and 15% Syrah that was brought up in 60% stainless steel and 40% in neutral barrels. It has lots to love, with medium-bodied depth and richness, smoking purity of fruit and a gorgeous texture that carries through the finish. It too will drink nicely for at least 4-5 years. 91/100 The Wine Advocate
