Two hands Zippy's Block Shiraz 2007

Perhaps no further ink needs to be spilt on Two Hands Zippy's Block Single Vineyard Barossa Valley Shiraz 2007. In addition to Parker et al who awarded WA93, Josh Raynolds and James Halliday commented the wine as follows:

‘Bright purple. Complex, pungent aromas of raspberry, blackberry, potpourri and incense, with a suave mineral note adding vibrancy. Sweet, minerally and densely packed, with terrific sappy vivacity to the flavors of raspberry and cherry preserves and minerals. With air, the spiciness gained strength and sexy floral notes emerged. Finishes with impressive breadth, fully ripe, gentle tannins and superb length.’ Some 94 points were awarded from Josh Raynolds, International Wine Cellar, August 2009.

‘More life here, with some red fruit providing lift to the concentrated fruitcake and chocolate beneath; the oak and fruit work in tandem and provide a rich, but not overwhelming level of interest on the finish; chewy with some nerve to conclude.’ Rating is 92 by James Halliday in James Halliday's Australian Wine Companion, July 2009. Drink 2020. Date Tasted Feb 2009.

The Zippy's Block Single Vineyard is one of the 6 to 7 single vineyards of Two hands. In terms of quality, wines from these wines play second fiddle only to the Flagship wines(and Ares Shiraz is the top-top Shiraz ) and is ranked much higher than the super-premium range of Garden Series which is from the best regional fruit. Of course, Zippy's Block is from an exceptional single vineyard site in Marananga. This block is special because it always has an extremely low yield and takes longer to reach full maturity. This wine has a complex bouquet followed by an opulent, elegant, viscous and supple palate. Wine style is true Barossa valley (fruit, power and concentration) clothed in an elegant and softer format. Skin contact duration is 19-day, using old French oak for 18 month. Of cork closure, this wine is 14.7% alc. 

Vintage 2007 of the Zippy's Block Single Vineyard Barossa Valley is different to the other vintages in that the wine very best perfumed characters, supple tannin and a warmth that has allowed for early drinking. Consider the recommended drink wine of 15 to 20 years, this wine is probably more readied to savour now.

Chateau Rieussec 2005 (375ml)半支裝

96 pts Neal Martin, Wine Advocate (219), June 2015:

Tasted blind against the Rieussec 2001 as a comparison, the Château Rieussec 2005 has a more airy bouquet at first and here I find more mineralité on the nose, more precision and focus that the Rieussec 2001. The palate is clean and fresh with vibrant acidity, real tension here with marmalade, lemon curd, apricot and cold stone. Wonderful acidity is interwoven throughout this Sauternes that demonstrates real race and sophistication. It is not as rich or as hedonistic as the Rieussec 2001, but I think the slightly better wine. More breeding and energy. Do not overlook this gem. Drink 2015-2045.

Italy, Piedmont
HK$240HK$220

Barbera d'Alba "Ceretto" Roberto Voerzio 2013

產區:Alba, Piedmont, Italy

品種:100% Barbera

“如果不是那些勇敢的生產者減少產量,把精力花在提高意大利葡萄酒的品質上,我們可能永遠不會知道巴貝拉(Barbera)如此美味、複雜、擁有如此巨大的陳年潛力。但是Roberto Voerzio的不僅令自己的名字聞名於世,也印證了Barbera不僅僅是美食的陪伴,更能做到令人刮目相看。 Roberto Voerzio釀造每一款酒都非常的“瘋狂”,這支Barbera也不例外。產量極低,每珠葡萄藤的產量僅有1kg,它的風格深邃細膩,集中度高,同時又有純淨的果香,超長的陳年潛力!

如果你是意粉,一定聽過Roberto Voerzio的大名,他是“醉”好的Barolo釀酒師之一。你絕不會將Voerzio與其他酒莊混起來,因為每一瓶Voerzio中都可以喝到他狂熱的“工匠精神”。 近乎偏執地追求著品質及Barolo地區的風土表現,如果結果不能令他滿意,他寧願選擇放棄。通過嚴格的產量控制和對風土的虔誠,他讓Nebbiolo和Barbera綻放出了前所未有的耀眼魅力。
Taste :濃郁的櫻桃風味,還有絲滑的牛奶巧克力味道,香氣直接開放。口感也是一致直接,飽滿但不覺得肥膩,酒體集中,令人印象深刻。

90 points Antonio Galloni: The 2013 Barbera d'Alba Cerreto is absolutely delicious, and another reminder of just how special this vintage is for Barbera. In 2013, the Cerreto is a bit brighter than it usually is, with plenty of supporting acidity and fabulous overall balance.

Chateau Lynch Bages 2006

94 points Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (196), August 2011:

This classic, powerful, firm Lynch Bages may be as concentrated (if not more so) than the 2005. It possesses a dense purple-tinged color, tell-tale cassis notes interwoven with hints of roast beef, savory herbs, spice box and subtle oak, good acidity and ripe tannin. The result is a full-bodied, fleshy Pauillac that will benefit from another 3-4 years of cellaring. It is capable of lasting 20-25 more years. Drink 2014-2039.

93 points Neal Martin, RobertParker.com, May 2016:

The 2006 Château Lynch Bages has another quite vivacious bouquet with lively black cherries, kirsch and wild mint aromas that do not hold back. I love the purity here. The palate is medium-bodied with fine supple tannin, well-judged acidity, a gentle grip in the mouth, and plenty of lightly spiced and surprisingly intense fruit on the bravura finish. The Cazes family oversaw a very sophisticated Lynch-Bages in this vintage that may well surpass many peoples' expectations.

Roero Arneis Bruno Giacosa 2014

Winemaker notes: Its delicate skin makes it one of the most recalcitrant varieties in Piedmont. Native to Roero, this grape was on the brink of near-extinction by the 1970s. Thanks to houses such as Vietti and the legendary Bruno Giacosa, it is still here for your enjoyment. Salute!

92 Points James Suckling: This is fantastic. Gorgeous acidity and minerality with dried pear and apple. Lemon and other ctirus undertones; hints of grapefruit. Full to medium body. Very long and fresh. You want to drink this in warm weather to freshen up.

Chambolle-Musigny 1er Les Noirots, Sigaut 2008

【 “香爆了,迷死人” Chambolle-Musigny】這個勃艮地村 最能表現出黑皮諾Pinot Noir 的優雅、精巧細致,有Queen of Burgundy 之稱。今日介紹一款低調樸實的酒莊Domaine Anne Et Herve Sigaut 2008年的一級田“Les Noirots” (如圖示)  ,BH89-91。  莊主夫婦Anne & Hervé 共同負責莊園的所有事務,根據 lunar calendar 的曆法時間打理葡萄園,並遵循著生物動力法來釀造。

風格是細膩典雅,純淨透明,沒有過分的萃取。酒體本身在年輕時就綻放出新鮮的果味花香散發著誘惑力,08年已有10年陳年,香氣會更突出及複雜,平衡的酸度和礦物骨架則又賦予其相當的陳年潛力。

*89-91 pts Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (37), January 2010:* 

A very pure red and blue berry fruit nose complements the sweet, round and delicious middle weight flavors that possess good acid support on the moderately firm, persistent and beautifully vibrant finish. This too is very Chambolle in character that isn't quite as elegant as the Chatelots but offers more complexity.

HK$280HK$240

Tua Rita Perlato del Bosco Rosso 2013

產區:Tuscany, Italy

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate( Jan 2017):

The 2013 Perlato del Bosco is a pure Sangiovese from a vineyard located just beyond the property's main house. This is Tua Rita's biggest seller when it comes to the USA market and with good reason. It shows a unique identity with bright berry nuances backed by tangy spice, candied orange peel and blue flower. I'm also told that this is the most difficult wine to make. Sangiovese is a difficult grape to manage and special root stocks (33-19) were selected to delay ripening in order to produce smaller and more flavorful clusters. This in itself is a risky proposition because the chances of bad weather increase the longer you wait before harvest. The wine sees eight months in neutral barrique. The bouquet shows a floral component with rose petal and lavender. In the mouth, it offers amazing potential and fullness. This is an amazing value-buy.

92 points James Suckling (Aug 2015):

This is pure sangiovese that builds on the palate with hazelnuts, orange peel and thyme. Full-bodied, yet racy and beautiful. Very balanced and impressive. Drink now. 

91 points Vinous( Oct 2017):

The 2013 Perlato del Bosco is wonderfully finessed in the glass, with silky tannins and expressive aromatics that give the wine its sense of polish. Sweet red berries, mint, cinnamon and wild flowers add nuance on the rich, expansive finish. This is a classic example of Suvereto Sangiovese, where the warm, dry weather yields ample, generous wines. There is plenty to like here.

Lisini Brunello di Montalcino 2008

產區:Tuscany, Italy

品種:100% Sangiovese

93 points Wine Spectator (May 2013): The terrific aromas of strawberry, cherry and currant are accented by underbrush, spice and tobacco elements on the palate in this elegant and intense red, which builds to a persistent finish. Fruit and mineral accents echo on the aftertaste. Best from 2015 through 2030. (BS) 

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (Jun 2013): Lisini’s 2008 Brunello di Montalcino is one of the few wines of the vintage that is going to require patience. A big, broad-shouldered wine, the 2008 fills out nicely over time with attractive black fruit, smoke, tar, game and savory herb notes. Although quite virile and imposing today, the 2008 also shows striking inner perfume and a level of sweetness that is likely to require some time to emerge, suggesting the wine has plenty of potential for improvement ahead. The 2008 spent 42 months in French oak, exceedingly long by today’s standards. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2028. (AG)

SENA 2014 ( 375ml )

Blend: 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Carmenere,11% Malbec, 8% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot

97 points James Suckling:

Complex aromas of blueberry, rose petal, licorice, and currant. Full body, ultra fine tannins and a fresh and clean finish. Balanced and very refined. A wonderful purity and beauty. Give it three to four years to come together but already a beauty.

95 points Wine Advocate:

The blend for the 2014 Sena was 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Carmenere, 11% Malbec, 8% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot from their stony soils. The different grapes are carefully fermented separately and with different regimes of maceration and extraction but always looking for elegance within the natural power of the zone. The final blend was transferred to French oak barrels, 67% of them new (a percentage that seems to be slowly going down), for the elevage of 22 months. This time, some 5% of the volume carried out its aging in new Stockinger foudres. This is very much in line with the 2013 and the direction set by that cool year. The wine is very harmonious, elegant within the house style. Another superb vintage of Sena. This should age effortlessly in bottle. 60,000 bottles were filled in March 2016.

La Rioja Alta "Viña Ardanza" Reserva Rioja 2004

#22 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2013

94 points Wine Spectator: Cedar, tobacco and spice hints frame dried cherry, berry and vanilla notes in this silky red. The flavors mingle nicely, framed by juicy acidity and light but firm tannins. The wine has a lovely, weightless intensity. A fine example of the traditional style.

93 points The Wine Advocate: The 2004 Vina Ardanza is a blend of 80% Tempranillo and 20% Garnacha from 30-year-old vines in Fuenmayor and Cenicero. It is aged for 36 months in four-year-old American oak. It has a very enticing bouquet with dark cherry, Christmas cake, dried fig and espresso with fine delineation and bags of exuberance. The palate is medium-bodied with taut tannins, underpinned by a keen citric thread that cuts through the licorice-tinged, dark berry and allspice-tinged fruit with style. It is simply delicious on the bittersweet finish.

93 points Decanter:  2004 was one of the decade's finest vintages in Rioja. Ardanza, with 20% Garnacha added to the Tempranillo, shows the typical generous appeal of the brand. A traditional favourite, polished and refurbished by winemaker Julio Sáenz.

Craggy Rang Te Muna Riesling 2016

Region : Te Muna Vineyard from Martinborough, New Zealand.

Produced from a small planting of riesling planted on the higher terrace of Te Muna Road Vineyard, this wine exhibits a juicy texture that is distinctly Martinborough. This is an off-dry, green tinged Martinborough Riesling displaying appealing rose petal, apple blossom and spicy notes smartly focussed around a core of ripe fruit and balanced by a fine mineral finish.

91 pts Jamie Goode (Jan 2017): So pretty and lively with lovely pure fruit: Citrussy and fine with nice texture and some tangerine detail. Lovely elegance and really pretty fruit, with a touch of sweetness on the finish.

93 Points James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, March 2016:

Wonderful aromas of spices and berries. Chili powder with plums. Chinese spices. Full body, ultra-fine tannins and delicious fruit. Pretty tannin and fruit tension. Drink or hold.

90 Points Antonio Galloni, vinous.com, March 2016:

Azelia's 2012 Barolo is fresh, floral and nicely lifted in the glass. Crushed flowers, sweet red cherries, spices, mint and rose petal lift from the glass in the 2012 Barolo. An excellent choice for drinking over the next handful of years, Azelia's straight Barolo is all about balance and understated harmony. The style is gracious, perfumed and weightless, with pretty saline notes that give the wine its sense of proportion. This is one of the best straight 2012 Barolos I tasted. Fruit sources are 70% Serralunga and 30% Castiglione Falletto. The 2012 spent two and a half years in cask. Hail was an issue in Bricco Voghera, so Azelia did not produce a Riserva. All the best fruit went into the straight Barolo.

Torbreck The Pict 2006

品種:100% Mataro (Mourvedre)

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar (Sept 2009):

Glass-staining ruby. Powerful scents of blackcurrant, dark cherry, olive tapenade and incense, with a musky herbal undertone. Broad, palate-staining dark berry compote flavors are framed by velvety tannins and pick up notes of licorice and bitter chocolate with air. Pretty wild stuff, boasting excellent concentration and finishing sweetness. There are plenty of tannins here but the fruit seems to suck them up. Give this another four or five years in the cellar.

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (Feb 2009):

The 2006 The Pict is 100% Mataro (Mourvedre) aged in 100% new French oak for 24 months. The fruit was sourced from one section of a vineyard planted in 1927. Purple-colored, it offers up an aromatic array of smoky oak, forest floor, black truffle, blueberry, and blackberry jam. On the palate it reveals a brawny, masculine personality with some austerity that should round out with a few years of additional bottle age. It should offer prime drinking from 2013 to 2026. (JM)

James Suckling 95分: 

A complex nose of dried strawberries with slate and white-truffle undertones. Hints of Spanish cedar. Full body, juicy tannins and bright acidity that follows through to a long, clean and earthy finish. A great wine that shows structure and complexity. Drink or hold.

93 Wine Spectator:

This red has a firm backbone and a solid texture, with harmonious flavors of plum, blackberry, licorice, cocoa and espresso. Concentrated yet graceful. Drink now through 2026.

92 Wine Advocate:

The 2011 Reserva Selección Especial, from a warmer and drier year compared with the average (as well as the previous harvest), has a similar blend as the regular Muga Reserva; it is 65% Tempranillo with 20% Garnacha, 10% Graciano and 5% Mazuelo, and it was fermented in small vats with indigenous yeasts. The different varieties and grapes are fermented and aged separately, the first year in new oak and the second one in used barrels. 2011 is a powerful vintage for this cuvée, which now shows quite marked by toasty aromas. Warm vintages usually need longer in bottle to integrate the oak, but experience shows that it gets absorbed and in fact the evolution of this wine in bottle is very good. Even if the nose recommends to wait, the palate is very balanced, with remarkably ripe tannins for such warm year, which can sometime produce some harsh tannins. Not the case here, where the wine shows good elegance and balance. This is a very reliable cuvée, quite stable across vintages.

90 points Neal Martin's Wine Journal (Jan 2012)

"It has a light but well defined bouquet with notes of redcurrant, boysenberry, mint leaf and cedar with good intensity and vigour. It reminds more of Las-Cases ’81 in some ways. The palate is medium-bodied with a dry, quite savoury entry, powdery and slightly edgy tannins. The fruit appears to be fading although the secondary flavours and compensating with touches of Chinese 5-spice, orange zest, dried blood and sandalwood. Classic old skool St-Julien towards the finish that has moderate length." 

91 points Wine Spectator (Oct 1994) : Polished, big, dark-colored, with rich and opulent aromas and flavors and loads of tobacco, cedary and berry character. 

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (Oct 1989): A top success for the vintage, the 1981 Gruaud-Larose is dark ruby, with a full-intensity bouquet of ripe black currants, spicy oak, plums, leather, smoked meat, and violets. This wine is concentrated on the palate, with rich, tannic, lingering flavors.

96 points Neal Martin, Wine Advocate (230), April 2017:

The 2013 Vin de Constance Natural Sweet Wine was matured in 500-liter barrels for around 36 months. It has a beautiful bouquet with honey, quince, pressed yellow flowers and Mirabelle. It has wonderful definition and purity. The palate is very well balanced with a mellifluous texture and beautifully judged acidity as it just sashays along. It fans out on the finish with honey, quince, a touch of rhubarb and ginger, extraordinarily persistent in the mouth. Matthew Day, current winemaker, opined that he thought the 2012 would be the best ever, but the freshness might see it overtaken. This is awesome.

95 points Tim Atkin MW, timatkin.com, September 2016:

Matt Day’s second vintage in charge of this iconic sweet wine marks an evolution in style, with the addition of essencia and slightly less alcohol and residual sugar (172 grams). It’s another lovely VDC, showing flavours of tarte tatin, orange marmalade, baking spices and subtle oak ageing. Drink: 2017-30

100 points Robert Parker, Hedonists Gazette, July 2008:

".....I noticed the Chinese love to have both a sweet wine and a vintage port at the end of a meal, which is pretty much over-kill for me. However, I was blown away by the 2003 Taylors vintage port."

98+ points Wine Advocate (161), October 2005:

The 2003 Taylor Fladgate Vintage Port improved each time I raised it to my nose or mouth. It displays a black color and a salty, graphite-laced nose packed with sweet black fruits that is reminiscent of a stellar vintage of Chateau Latour. With air, notes of molasses, burnt sugar, spices, and jammy plums emanate from the glass. Full-bodied, hugely dense, immensely rich, as well as thick, this behemoth is also amazingly balanced and harmonious. Raisins, molasses, licorice, black cherries, plums, and a distinctive note of violets are found in its complex, seamless character. Its interminable finish reveals additional notes of chocolate, kirsch, red as well as black currants, dark cherries, and rose blossoms. Armed with exceptional power, depth, and purity, this Taylor will proudly stand shoulder to shoulder with the finest ever crafted by the Fladgate Partnership. Projected maturity: 2035-2060.

95 points Wine Spectator:

“Dense, deep and brooding, delivering a complex mouthful of coffee-accented cherry, boysenberry, roasted meat and licorice flavors that meld together harmoniously and extend into the long, expansive finish. Tannins are present but well-submerged.”

Chateau Fortia Chateauneuf-du-pape Cuvee de Baron 2015 

Château Fortia is not a winery that chases good press on a whim. These are consistent, classic wines that faithfully represent the region’s terroir year after year. The Cuvée du Baron, which combines 45% Syrah with 40% Grenache, and 15% Mourvedre, was created in the memory of the Domaine’s founder, Baron Le Roy de Boiseaumarie. The wine was first released in 2001.

The wine went through a long, cool fermentation in small lots by varietal, then aged 18 months in old oak foudres prior to bottling. Deep garnet-purple in colour, this is a wine with a dense, complex nose and notes of plum and cassis and garrigue on a medium-bodied palate.

92 pts Wine Spectator:

This has a solid, juicy core of bright cassis, cherry preserves and bergamot, backed by juicy and finely beaded acidity. Light floral incense and dried star anise notes flitter through the background. A light mineral edge guides the finish. Drink now through 2030.

92 pts Wine Advocate:

Cherries and spice mingle easily on the nose of the 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee du Baron, a blend of 45% Syrah, 40% Grenache and 15% Mourvèdre matured in foudre. This full-bodied wine is rich and velvety in texture, with a long, lush, slightly warm finish. It should drink well for up to a decade.

92 pts Jeb Dunnuck :

The two 2015s start with the 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée du Baron (no tradition cuvée was presented) and it's a blend of 45% Syrah, 40% Grenache and the rest Mourvèdre brought up all in foudre. Ripe black cherries, framboise, pepper, and garrigue all flow to a nicely balanced, tannic 2015 that has nicely integrated acidity and a solid finish. This is an old-school, classic Châteauneuf-du-Pape that's best forgotten for 3-4 years, and enjoyed over the following decade.

Mondot (2nd Wine of Troplong Mondot) 2005

產區:Saint Emilion, Bordeaux 

品種:90 % Merlot, 5 % Cabernet Franc, 5 % Cabernet Sauvignon 

Mondot 2005 是 Troplong Mondot的副牌, 平均數齡35年,05年產量僅11000支。

2005年是酒莊的傳奇年份,正牌Troplong Mondot得到Robert Parker 100分。

In 1985, Troplong Mondot's policy of searching for new levels of quality in its wine led to the introduction of added rigor in the selection process for its top wine. This resulted in the birth of the estate's «Other Wine», Mondot, which over the ensuing years has become established as a great growth in its own right with its hallmark elegance and silky tannins.

89 Points Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (219), June 2015:

The second wine of Troplong Mondot, Christine Valette’s 2005 Mondot is noteworthy. Dense plum/ruby/purple in color, its new saddle leather, plum, soy and balsamic notes are followed by a medium to full-bodied, luscious, soft, silky textured wine. It is rich, fleshy and best drunk over the next 7-8 years. Drink: 2015 - 2023

92 points James Suckling (April 2014):

Beautiful aromas of white truffles, plums and berries. HInts of spices. Full to medium body with fine tannins and beautiful licorice, berry and fennel seed. Very pretty length. Drinkable now but better in 2015. 

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar (December 2013):

(as the Produttori has declassified its crus in 2010, there will be 28,000 cases of this blend): Tangy cherry and raspberry aromas are lifted by flowers and mint on the cool, inviting nose. Silky-sweet and floral, with lovely inner-mouth juiciness to its red berry flavors. Owing to the wine's moderate body and flesh, the tannins show a slightly dryness but the long, juicy finish offers enticing floral perfume. A lovely, sharply delineated Barbaresco at a very reasonable price.
