OUR LATEST RELEASE: Reserve Classic Cuvee 2016

OUR LATEST RELEASE: Reserve Classic Cuvee 2016

So excited about this one! Upfront cassis and plums are supported by subtle oak nuances and a smooth but rounded mouth-feel.

The wine is extremely juicy with lashings of dusty chocolate and whiffs of moist Christmas cake on the nose. The palate is steeped in a melange of blackberries, orange rind and hints of dried mint combining a lovely warm earthiness with an abundance of fruit flavours. The tannins are smooth with a dry and delightfully spicy aftertaste.

New Release: Reserve Jubileum 2015

This wine’s black core with purple rim is the first sign of its intensity. Fragrant pink pepper spice, wild blackberries and classic graphite are some of the flavours you will find in the perfumed bouquet. The palate is generous and lush with sweet bold fruit and brandied cherry nuances that lead to a full bodied palate and a grippy but ripe tannin structure.

New Release: Barony August Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

New Release: Barony August Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Our latest release is sure to be a popular one, judging by the popularity of its predecessor, Barony August 2014, that sold out after its release last year.

The colour of this Cabernet Sauvignon is a dark garnet-rouge. The nose shows fragrant cassis, dried herb and cocoa aromas that develop into bright and vibrant red berried fruits on the palate. The wine is elegant but has great depth with juicy tannins and a fresh acidity that contributed to its length and concentration.

“The Lady in White” is making her return as a new vintage, and she is more delightful than ever! Barony Cecile is the perfect white to enjoy during the last bit of summer.

This Sauvignon Blanc has a golden pale appearance. The nose is quite perfumed and shows distinctive cut grass and white asparagus aromas while the palate is layered with passion fruit, lime and pineapple. The aftertaste has a mineral edge that concludes in a citrusy finish.  It is rich and concentrated, a definitive food wine with a vibrant acidity.
