Liberty School Chardonnay is sourced from key vineyard sites along California's Central Coast. Our Paicines vineyards attribute body and richness to the blend, while vineyards in the Santa Lucia Highlands attribute elegance, acidty and a tropical character. Santa Barbara County and San Benito County vineyards add a roundness to the wine, making for a well-balanced Chardonnay with excellent varietal expression. The anticipated El Niño provided around eight inches of rain in Paso Robles, which was less than hoped for, but much needed after four prior drought years. The rainfall had a positive effect on fruit quality and yields, specifically for the Rhône and Bordeaux varietals. In 2016, most varieties of grapes came in above average in terms of yield and quality, which was a welcomed surprise. The overall 2016 vintage delivered high quality fruit with above expectations on colour and fruit intensity.
Sileni's state of the art winery, vinifies grapes using modern and traditional methods which help to produce a dry, refreshing, all round well structured wine. Pale lemony green in colour with a satisfying nose of kiwi, lime, gooseberry, tropical fruits and a touch of grassiness. Whilst the palate displays taut acidity, zingly citrus fruits, gooseberry, stone fruits and minerality.
A celebration of Mendoza - the colour, culture and flavour and a celebration of friendship. A really pure expression of Malbec, bright red & juicy, rich chocolate flavours with a lick of oak to round out the edges. Muy, muy fantasticó – richly bloody, vibrant, Latin and velveteen.
A fresh wine with a lovely hue, bursting with aromas of ripe guava, pineapple, kiwi, green apple and a hint of strawberry, ending with a well-balanced acidity and a lingering finish.
Deep ruby red. A rich, expressive bouquet with notes of red-berried fruit, blackberry and blackcurrant with highlights of oak. The palate is rounded, ample and flavourful, displaying remarkable freshness. The harmonious balance of the tannins, which imparts fine aromatic length with a predominantly fruity back-of-palate, is to be savoured. One of the great achievements of the 2017 vintage, a very fine wine that stands out by virtue of its freshness and vibrancy.
