2017 Cheval des Andes, Cheval Blanc/Terrazas de los Andes, Mendoza

Dry | Red | Still | 13.5%

Beautifully, darkly aromatic on the nose, with the peppery savouriness of the Malbec really coming through. Long and refined on the palate, with filigree tannins and all the elegance of high-altitude Cabernet.

2017 Opus One, Mondavi/Rothschild, Napa Valley

Dry | Red | Still

The 2017 Opus One is a charming, impressive wine from this benchmark Californian winery. On the nose it’s pretty Bodelais - in my initial note I wrote, “smells like Lafite”. On the palate you feel that Cali density, with notes of mulberry and cassis, and a hint of fresh mint. Lifted and spicy on the finish, this is an Opus that really delivers.

Young: 2025 - 2048

2017 Le Petit Clos, Clos Apalta, Casa Lapostolle

Dry | Red | Still

The 2017 Petit Clos from Clos Apalta is a wonderful second wine. Intense and powerful, but with beautifully refined tannins, it’s a charming Chilean red, and a bargain at this price.

2019 Y de Château d'Yquem, Bordeaux

Dry | White | Still

No Drink Dates Available:

2017 Cabernet Sauvignon, Inglenook, Rutherford, Napa Valley

Dry | Red | Still | 14.5%

The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon from Inglenook is a wine of real pedigree. There's ripe fruit here, with huge intensity of cassis and a slight minty tang. The palate is supple yet intense, with beautifully rendered tannis. In the context of Napa, this tastes twice the price.

Young: 2023 - 2037

2017 Rubicon, Inglenook, Rutherford, Napa Valley

Dry | Red | Still

No Drink Dates Available:

2017 Vin de Constance, Klein Constantia

50cl Bottle Sweet | White | Still

The 2017 Vin de Constance is another example of how Matt Day has moved the style of this into something that is stunningly elegant, without losing any of its purity and freshness. This is remarkable - explosive on the nose with fresh apricots and thyme, there’s incredible poise and freshness here. The finish is long and savoury - this is sweet but not overbearing. Bravo - a match for the greatest sweet wines of the world.

2018 Seña, Chadwick, Aconcagua Valley, Chile

Dry | Red | Still

Young: 2025 - 2050

2016 John Riddoch Cabernet Sauvignon, Wynns, Coonawarra

Dry | Red | Still | 13.7%

The 2016 John Riddoch Cabernet Sauvignon comes from just 1% of Wynns’ production, and is a spectacular vintage for this legendary wine. Intense fruit but with the minerality and freshness that defines this wine, it’s a wine for the long haul, that will surely impress.
