The results are in for this year’s Wine Merchant Top 100 and we are pleased to announce two of our wines have been included in the 2016 winners, Jackson Estate The Settler Pinot Noir 2013 and La Miranda De Secastilla Garnacha Blanca 2013.
Jackson Estate The Settler Pinot Noir 2013
The Settler Pinot Noir recognises the Jackson family who settled the original Homestead site on Jacksons Road in 1855. This wine has concentrated aromas of red and black fruits overlay a background of dried herbs, spice and cedar. To taste, the flavour profile is a combination of savoury and spice, rich and ripe without losing precise pinot noir detail. Tannins are firm but integrated, leaving a lasting impression of texture, concentration and not least; definitive vineyard and southern Marlborough clays character.
Viñas Del Vero La Miranda De Secastilla Garnacha Blanca 2013
After hand picking the Garnacha Blanca grapes, a speciality of the area, this wine was fermented in French oak barrels and then matured for a further 4 months. To produce a highly aromatic wine with great citrus fruit on the nose, combined with a soft creamy palate and a crisp fresh finish.
Our Vilarnau Brut Nature Reserva Cava was also awarded the highly commended accolade.
