This wine has elegance from the Merlot, backbone from the Cabernet
Sauvignon, spiciness from the Shiraz, dark berry fruit flavours from the Malbec
and zest from the Mouvedre. A wine pairing with enough oomph to hold up
against roasted tomato and red meat.
The saturated dense purple coloured Barton Merlot exhibits sweet blackberry
and dark cherry aromas with a dash of roasted almonds. On the palate it has
outstanding freshness, rich ripe fruit, good underlying acidity and soft ripe
tannins with a layered finish. A gaze down memory lane, a home-style cooked
pot-roast with the family on a Sunday…
Shiraz/ Cabernet Sauvignon
Concentrated berries and white pepper spice with a hint olive can be found
on the nose supported by savory notes. The palate shows dark, juicy fruit.
Good wood integration and tannins are evident on the finish. You can pair
this wine with anything from a blue cheese burger to a peppery barbecue.
Silky smooth and medium-bodied with green apple and white pear on the
nose. Balanced and well-structured with tropical fruit and hints of apricot,
pineapple and honey on the palate which linger on the after taste. Pairs
well with foods that have a sweet and sour element like Southeast Asian
cuisine or pork chops with apples.
This wine favours individuality and minerality ahead of pure, pungent fruit, but
still shows ripe tropical fruit, as well as grapefruit, granadilla aromas. There is
roundness on the palate, with citrus notes, kiwi freshness and a hint of green
tea, complemented by a lively acidity. A wine of substantial length and charm.
Pinot Noir Rosé
In appearance it is light golden pink; clear and brilliant. To the nose it is a seduction of cut strawberries dipped in whipped cream evolving in layers in
caramel and lemon. To the palette it is a capturing dry rose, fresh and lively with lingering after taste. The fruit flavor following through. In terms of
maturation it is a delight. Drink chilled.
