Tasting Notes

The Shiraz grapes for this ESP 'reserve cuvee' were sourced mainly from vines planted on the Estate during the 1930s. Rich, dark fruit scents with a mix of spice leap from the glass. Powerful and rich black fruit flavours on the palate with excellent depth of fruit, layered complexity with notes of spice, pepper and licorice. The overall balance is rich yet still elegant, with silky tannins and a long, lingering taste of blackberries that provide a satisfying finish.

Reviews & Scores

Deep garnet colored with a hint of purple in the rim, the 2006 Eric Stevens Purbrick Shiraz presents fragrant evolving fruit aromas of dried mulberries, figs and blackberry compote over baking spices, menthol and aniseed. There's plenty of mouth-filling berry fruit on the palate supported by firm, chewy tannins and crisp acid, finishing long and spicy. Drink this one now to 2019+.

An impressive release that speaks volume of the pedigree of Tenuta San Guido’s wines. Guidalberto is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot. A voluptuous nose charged with blackcurrant, black cherries, damson notes is rained in by mineral, almost balsamic hints of black olive, mint, tomato leaf and fresh black pepper. The exuberant nose of youth shouldn’t distract from the...

TASTING NOTES

“A darker, more structured Barolo than his sibling, Prapo’ is an incredibly pure expression of the terroir of Serralunga. Precise notes of red and black berries, forest floor and dark spices are framed by tight woven tannins and lively freshness. An exciting release that has the potential to be enjoyed for the next 10 years.” Armit Wines
