A beautifully light and slightly frizzante wine - perfect for summer sipping. This Pink Muscat from Stella Bella is full of gorgeous red berry flavours with a hint of vanilla and a fresh and delicate finish.

This 2002 reveals the vintage’s cool climate character in its restrained aromas and flavors as well as its European-like elegance and ripe flavor. The 2002 Shiraz 1914 spent 22 months in 50% new American and the rest older French and American barrels. Reminiscent of a Northern Rhone offering, it is a pure, elegant Shiraz exhibiting notes of tapenade, black cherries, berries, flowers, licorice, and barrique.

The 2005 Shiraz 1914 is similarly styled to the 1928, but with slightly greater depth and concentration. It can be enjoyed over the next 10-15 years.

The 2005 Shiraz 1928 is opaque purple-colored with an expressive bouquet of cedar, pencil lead, mineral, violets, tar, blueberry, and blackberry. This is followed by a medium-to full-bodied wine with gobs of ripe fruit, spicy black fruit flavors already exhibiting complexity, a harmonious personality, and a lengthy, fruit-filled finish.
This was my first exposure to the wines of Aramis. The polished, refined 2002 Syrah The Governor reveals a deep ruby/purple color along with sweet notes of toasty vanillin oak as well as abundant quantities of black raspberry, cassis, licorice, and smoke characteristics. Robert Parker
Classic cooler-season Coonawarra cabernet with wonderfully deep scents of cassis, plums and cedar/chocolate oak over lightly herbal and dusty, leafy nuances. Long, smooth and fine-grained, the palate is stylish and structured, presenting intense, vibrant cassis, mulberry and plum flavours harmoniously balanced with fine-grained oak and tight-knit firm tannins.

An ethereal perfume of spicy cloves, cinnamon and licorice overlies deep aromas of raspberries, cassis and plums, with undertones of white pepper, rosemary and sweet vanilla/cedar oak. Long, smooth and sumptuous, it’s deep, pristine fruit, creamy oak and leathery game meat-like complexity culminate in a lingering finish of balance and harmony. Very stylish, very classy.

The 2005 Shiraz “Greenock Block” is opaque purple-colored with aromas of pain grille, black pepper, scorched earth, blueberry compote, and blackberry liqueur. Intense and layered, this full-bodied effort packs a punch. There are gobs of fruit and plenty of tannin under the surface. This unsubtle but powerful wine can be cellared for several years and will drink well through 2020.

The back strapping 2005 Shiraz “House Block – Rare” is purple/black in color. It reveals aromas of cedar, wood smoke, cassis, blackberry, and blueberry compote. Full-bodied, thick, and rich, this opulent wine is nearly over the top. Intense, powerful, and very long in the finish.
