This vineyard as usual keeps on giving, producing world class Albarino 91pts ($30)
Clean lines of grapefruit, lime and lemongrass make for a fresh, somewhat angular nose on this zesty tongue-tingling bottling. The palate begins with a round orange-candy flavor and then dives into the sharpness of lime skins and grapefruit peels, with a sizzle of acidity that goes long and deep.
Another incredibly high award for this unusual grape variety
Tannat 94 Pts ( Adelaida District) $52
Very cohesive aromas of blueberry and black currant meet with deep violet, lilac and brioche aromas on this bottling of the relatively rare grape from Southwest France. A well-woven tapestry of blueberry mousse, cola spice, root beer, dried ginger and clove dust make for layers and layers of thick and impressive flavor.
Snooth recently scored Brecon’s 2014 Zinfandel/Tannat a golden 90 points and had this to say about it, “Soft strawberry and cherry aromas with a hint of clay, wild flowers and cinnamon spice. This is expansive and explosive on the palate, very fruity with notes of cherry, strawberry and raspberry set against a bracing acidity that carries a wave of spice with it and leaves structural tannins and notes of blueberry and chocolate in its wake.”
Thanks to Wine Enthusiast Magazine, our award season is shaping up to be another golden one! Brecon’s 2014 Reserve Cabernet scored 94 points (sorry, sold out), while our 2014 Reserve Petite Sirah scored 93 points and was named Editor’s Choice in their February issue! Might want to grab the Petite Sirah while you can online or in the tasting room, it’s flying out the door… cheers!
