505 Wine - Something Different

 

2015     Chalmers Greco, Murray Darling, VIC      

Greco is the name given to several closely related Italian varieties from Campania and Puglia, Chalmers imported the Greco di Tufo variety, straw colour, subdued nose, white peach and apple with a hint of marzipan and white pepper, medium bodied with tingly briny phenolic and crunchy acidity, plenty of textural interest.

  

2015     Chaffey Brothers ‘Dufte Punkt’, Eden Valley, SA     

Wonderful aromatics is an understatement here; this is about as alluring as you can imagine. Musk sticks, rose petals, lychee, grapefruit, the list goes on. The Gewürztraminer brings a voluptuous richness and the Riesling is there to keep it all in check and tighten things up. Meanwhile the Weißer Herold, (also known as Kerner) adds the racy textural component.

 

2013     La Purisima ‘Estio’ Macabeo, D.O Yelcla, ESP     

Inviting wine with golden hues adorned by green reflexes, a charming citrus fruit and white blossom nose and supported by ripe tropical fruit. Elegant, refreshing and harmonious flavours.

  

2013     Eidosela Albarino, D.O Rias Baixas, ESP     

The noble Galician grape albarino gets another spin here in this offering from renown producers Eidosela. It’s dry and rich in style, with scents of ripe nectarines and ginger spice on the nose, together with whiffs of honeysuckle. The palate is medium-bodied and plush with bright, fleshy stone fruits, refreshing lemony acidity, and a dry, slightly herbaceous finish.

 

2012     Palacios Remondo ‘La Vendimia’ Tempranillo, Roija, ESP     

It’s all about the vineyard. Great old-vines, beautifully composed fruit reflecting the smells and flavours of the earth in the finished wine. Palacios Remondo is an estate given to Garnacha and Tempranillo in equal measure, plus a little white from Viura, and little bits of Mazuelo (aka Carinena or Carignan) and Graciano - the traditional blending agents, along with Garnacha, which Riojanos use with Tempranillo.

 

2014     S.C.P Grenache Shiraz Touriga, McLaren Vale, SA     

Grenache brings lifted aromatics and its trademark sandy tannins, Shiraz chimes in with red fruits, spice and weight, whilst the Touriga, a lusty, powerful Portuguese variety, adds pungent fruit characteristics of plum pudding, dried spices and floral notes. The resultant wine is so much more than just the sum of it’s three parts, and is utterly drinkable and downright irresistible.
