Château Maurac, Haut Medoc – Cru Bourgeois, Bordeaux 2004 $29.95
VINTAGES#: 550392 | 750 mL bottle
A Silver Medal winner at Mundus Vini 2008, this wine was grown in the Left Bank appellation of Haut-Médoc and blends roughly two-thirds Merlot with one-third Cabernet Sauvignon. It’s almost fully mature with lovely notes of dried figs, peppery spices, game meats, tobacco and leather along with hints of fresh mulberry and plum, all caressed by smooth, mellow tannins. Drink through 2024 with herb-crusted flank steak and sautéed mushrooms. (Vintages panel, Sept. 2017)

Château Plaisance Les Palues, Bordeaux Supérieur 2009 $18.95
VINTAGES#: 526939 | 750 mL bottle
Wines labelled Bordeaux Supérieur can be grown anywhere in Bordeaux and must be aged at least nine months. This one blends 70% Merlot with 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Petit Verdot and is showing lovely earthy, leather and licorice notes along with cherry, raspberry and blackcurrant. Stunning value. Drink through 2021 with rack of lamb and braised fennel. (Vintages panel, April 2017)
The Winery of Good Hope Reserve Pinot Noir 2016 $19.95
VINTAGES#: 146415 | 750 mL bottle
100% whole-berry fermented from Elgin quite similar to Freedom (except only 6 months in older oak). Fresh and bright, with tangy black berry fruit. Great value. Step above last-tasted 2012. Score – 4 Stars (out of 5). (Platter’s South African Wine Guide, 2018)
From the Team behind Radford Dale… “We specialise in the mountainous viticultural sub-regions of the Helderberg area in Stellenbosch, Elgin, and the Perderberg area in the Swartland. This is a fancy way of saying that we work with grapes from all of these areas – the right grapes for the right wines (rather than growing all the fruit on our property). That’s one of the reasons we’re different.”

Mönchhof Riesling QBA Mosel Germany2016 – $20.95
VINTAGES#: 553776 | 750 mL bottle
This is a classically styled, characterful German Riesling. Impressive peach and lime and a delicate honey shade with a pure, refined minerality. The sweetness here is perfectly balanced by the spine of driving acidity and the texture is stunning; a rich but lithe mouthfeel that leads to a long, tangy finish. Elegant and refined. A real delight. Give this a go with grilled lobster tail with citrus butter. (Vintages panel, March 2018) “The exemplary and archetypal Mosel house delivers lean, low alcohol and finely tuned riesling for a distinctive and specific house style. Richer than the median and layered by its ripe fruit and slate minerality, the energy building along the way is a great indicator of the corporeal body politic soon to be on its way. But you can drink up its deliciousness right now. Drink 2018-2022. Tasted April 2018.” www.winealign.com

Del Rio Vineyards Pinot Noir 2014 $18.95
VINTAGES#: 546366 | 750 mL bottle
Ruby color. Fruity, spicy aromas and flavors of spiced cherries, tamarind chutney, juicy heirloom tomato, and toasted crumpet with a satiny, crisp, fruity light-to-medium body and a smooth, intriguing, medium-length Indian pickle finish with silky tannins. A tasty and balanced pinot noir with wide appeal and versatility. Highly Recommended. Score – 88. (tastings.com, Dec. 6, 2017) “The pleasure derived from Oregon pinot noir does not have to come from the greatest complexities and sometimes it’s just a matter of soil, fruit and happenstance. Twenty years of Rogue Valley experience has served Del Rio’s vineyards well, to elevate this perfectly correct and lithe estate raised pinot noir for all to enjoy. It’s simple, so direct by a wealth for red fruit and balanced by matched acidity. It’s a great food wine and so easy to knock back, with so many utilitarian abilities…” Michael Godel Winealign.com
Punset Campo Quadro Barbaresco 2009 $63
VINTAGES#: 419614 | 750 mL bottle
92 Points Rober Parker
The 2009 Barbaresco Campo Quadro delivers the goods. I have found that vintage plays a specifically important role in the wines of Punset. Age is another factor as these wines gain their balance only after a good amount of time in the cellar. This Barbaresco from the 2009 vintage shows an interesting range of aromas that span from wild berry and dried blueberry to very smokey tar, asphalt and granite. In the mouth, the wine is tight, streamlined and it shows firm tannic structure. Campo Quadro is part of the San Cristoforo cru in the Neive township. Drink Date: 2017-2030. Score – 92.

René Muré Clos Saint Landelin Grand Cru Pinot Gris 2014 $50
—VINTAGES#: 969345 | 750 mL bottle
93 Points Wine Enthusiast
Heady notes of ripe pear and chalky stone entice on the nose. The dry, focused palate adds aromatic spice, some white pepper too, and glides along a faultline of pure, fresh acidity. Beautifully integrated, the elements of pear and citrus zest complement each other for grown-up, sustained fun. Score – 93. (Anne Krebiehl, MW, Wine Enthusiast, April 1, 2016)
