97+ to 98 Points - Stuart McCloskey “A fabulous and powerful nose which oozes with blood orange, fennel, crushed strawberry and cranberry. Lots of minerality with more aeration (I suggest a good hour in the decanter). The palate is broad, textural and the sweet fruit wrapped with filigree tannins. There’s a distinct orange sorbet (orange peel) freshness which is very appealing and harmonises with the cranberry and raspberry notes. As usual, all of Joshua’s wines come across unforced and wonderfully natural – this is a lovely, effortless example of great Aussie Pinot Noir. Moreover, this will be fascinating to watch develop over the coming years. The tongue tingles for minutes (sherbet sorbet)… Another faultless wine from the Cooper stable and deeply impressive. Drink now to 2030”.

Zalto Denk-Art Burgundy Glass

The Zalto Burgundy glass is recommended for all Pinot Noirs, designed almost specifically for Pinot’s delicate aromas. The aromas of Pinot Noir are often the most delicate, but when revealed can be the most enticing and pretty. The Zalto Burgundy glass is the widest of all the Zalto glasses providing the largest surface area for wine. This allows for rapid aeration, revealing all of the delicate spice, herb, floral, earth and berry aromas to be maximized. The narrower rim holding these aromas for an unparalleled experience of the elegant subtleties. The Zalto Burgundy is also very good for Nebbiolo, especially Barolo.

Producer

Joshua Cooper Wines UK

 

We have dropped Joshua Cooper from our exclusive list of producers, which and given the fact we awarded his Springs Syrah our 2019 Wine of the Year must come as a surprise. The quality and style of his wines was never an issue as the entire collection is nothing short of outstanding. We work with some incredibly generous wine producers who really go out of their way to communicate with us (and in turn you). Sadly, Joshua has a unique ‘can’t be bothered’ attitude and has no intention of answering a single email or helping to establish his name in a new market which curious to say the very least. So, and out of respect to our willing winemakers and our own ethics, he’s been unceremoniously dropped from our portfolio. There is some good news! We’ve slashed the prices as space is at a premium and reserved to wine producers who care about their customers.

Region

Buy wines from Victoria, Australia

Despite being the second smallest state in Australia, Victoria is home to over 600 wineries, more than any other wine-producing state. However, Victoria does not produce the most wine, as rather than producing mass quantities of cheaper wine, its wineries tend to be smaller and more boutique in style. The cool climate here produced by the coastal areas means that a wide range of wines can be made, from stunningly complex Chardonnay’s and delicate Pinot Noirs in the Yarra Yarra Valley, to savoury and rich Shiraz from Heathcote and iconic fortified wines from Rutherglen.

Our favourite producers from the Victoria region include By Farr and from the Heathcote area, Wild Duck Creek.
