Château Tronquoy-Lalande

Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

Fantastic left bank Bordeaux. Dark, super dry fruit. Minerally with this so district graphite/lead pencil under notes. Just returned from South Africa where we were blown away with the quality wines they are producing from their stunning vineyards. We were able to stuff 36 bottles on our suitcases. Yes Shiraz and Pinotage and Chenin blanc are their signature wines but places like Vergelegen, Villafonte and BoschenDal are making fantastic Bordeaux blends. We just had to check it against our references once we got home… — 7 days ago

Schaapenberg Vineyard Reserve Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Not a huge amount on the nose. But lovely crisp, herby, mineral palate. Very long finish. Possibly still on the young side but drinking well — 2 years ago


Reserve Shiraz 2014

A really rounded, well made Shiraz in (what I think) is a northern Rhône style. Earthy aroma with plenty of dark fruit. It’s dry, savoury and acidic in the mouth, with just the right amount of tannin. Certainly not brawny - if anything a little lean. The finish is long, with plenty of mocha notes. — 4 years ago

Pale with a tinge of green. Crisp@nose, blackcurrant leaves. Good acidity on the attack then the woody sweeter notes come out, ending with vanilla and cream. Superb — 4 months ago
