Yalumba Y Series Shiraz 2010

The Yalumba Y Series of quality wines salutes our proud history of viticulture and winemaking in South Australia. Significantly, the individual icons on each label reflect the labours, inventive thinking and aspirations of all at Yalumba.

This Shiraz depicts our coopers toiling in our cooperage crafting magnificent oak barrels, a proud Yalumba tradition in a wine world that has precious few of these truly gifted artisans.

The 2010 Yalumba Y Series Shiraz is deep crimson red in colour. It displays aromas of boysenberry and ripe cherry, complemented by a hint of cinnamon oak. The palate shows a core of sweet fruit that make this variety so beloved. Flavours of boysenberry and ripe cherry continue with a moderate level of tannin, full body and hearty finish. A perfect accompaniment for Mediterranean inspired pizza.

89 points- The Wine Spectator (May 31, 2012) “Lithe, with a pepper character informing the dark berry and current flavors. All lingering effortlessly on a velvety finish.”

Glenmorangie Companta

glenmorangie-compantaNow available in Missouri and Illinois.

Inspired by Dr Bill Lumsden, Glenmorangie’s head of whisky creation, travels across France’s greatest vineyards and the friends made along the way, Glenmorangie Companta (Scots Gaelic for ‘friendship’) is a refined balance between bold spice and rich, smooth sweetness; the result of a careful assemblage of spirit extra matured in Grand Cru casks from Clos de Tart and those of a lusciously sweet fortified wine from Côtes du Rhône.

On the nose, Companta exudes rich, ‘autumnal’ scents of red berries and damp forest floors, with a hint of fragrant woodsmoke complementing notes of aromatic, nutty oak.

Upon tasting, a spicy palate redolent of cherries and stewed fruits is slowly revealed, as notes of sugared plums, blood orange and rose-hip syrup emerge alongside milk chocolate and brown sugar.

Companta lingers on with a rich, mouth-coating finish.
