A doppelgänger for top-drawer modern Châteauneuf, the 2018 The Steading from Torbreck is an immaculate Barossa GSM with quite disarming purity. The nose explodes with blueberry, strawberry, liquorice, Turkish delight, lavender and baking spices, a scent which feels luxurious - like stepping into a five star hotel. The palate is extremely supple, sweet like fruit cake on entry but gradually develops in umami, with some smoked bacon and dried cherry. The tannins are almost imperceptible, as is the alcohol - it checks in at 15% but is deftly handled and there’s no sense of heat whatsoever. This isn’t what I was expecting from this wine, a wine I have fond memories of serving to guests in the restaurant I worked in almost ten years ago. It was a perfect match for braised short rib of beef with Port beef jus, which needed a sweeter style of red (I had considered Bordeaux for this evening). This wine was superb, a pleasant surprise and I’m delighted to have bought this year’s release by the case. — 3 months ago

Dark and rich in the glass, the 2019 Hexe displays wild strawberry, red plum, anise and peppery floral aromas. This is wickedly fresh yet powerful, with depths of ripe cherry-berry fruits, autumnal spice and lively acidity that holds the entire experience together. The 2019 finishes long and spicy, echoing with blue and purple inner florals. A balsamic twang lingers. (Eric Guido, Vinous, May 2023) — 4 months ago
바닐라+오크향이 느껴져 좋았다. 소스를 적게한 와퍼랑 먹어도 맛있을지도!
산도랑 바디감은 크지않음, 탄닌감도 적어 쉽게 마실수 있을 와인
