Southern Right Sauvignon Blanc
With maximum fruit and personality, the 2019 vintage maintains the typical Southern Right balance of Old World minerality and length with hints of New World palate coverage and body. The complex palate favors minerality ahead of pure, pungent varietal aroma. A significant percentage of fruit from clay-rich soil adds an intense mid-palate structural component and additional overall complexity to this wine
Silk & Spice
Silk & Spice lives up to it's name and has been rated one of the top 100 wines in the world by Wine Enthusiast. The blend is Touriga Nacional, Baga, Alicante Bouchet, and Syrah. The nose carries lots of toasted spice and ripe fruit. The palate is silky smooth, with flavors of black currant, dark fruits, and spices. It enjoys a fine finish with smooth acidity.
This red blend combines Grenache, Shiraz, and Mataro for deep crimson, purple wine featuring aromas of Ripe red fruits and black cherry on the nose. Notes of mocha and subtle savory and herbs notes adding complexity to the bouquet, while bright and juicy fruits coat the palate, balanced by pepper and sweet spices. Medium-bodied in structure with great complexity and lovely silky tannins which flow through the fruity, peppery and spicy finish.
