Breathe in the heady scents of caramelized pineapples, hazelnuts, citrus fruit and cream before taking a mouthful of ripe, yellow tropical fruits, marmalade and lemon meringue pie flavours supported by creamy spice and vanilla all of which linger together into a endless finish.
Rich deep purple in colour. Opulent red fruit, with a hint of caramel, a profoundly perfumed aroma with floral notes of Violets and even melon and pomegranate on the nose. Shiraz provides the heart and soul in the form of palate volume, dark fruit, subtle pepper and other exotic spices. Simply put, this wine was tailor- made to excite your taste buds.
Depth and clarity are the defining characteristics of this wine. The nose shows gentle wood smoke, oyster bed, seville orange and lime peel, orange flower water as well as buttery, lactic notes. The flavour profile of the wine is decidedly fresh and cool, balanced tantalisingly with a rich, unctuous palate.
In imagining The Abyssinian we took our cue from the masters of Burgendy and as expressed in the wines of Crozes-Hermitage icon, Alain Graillot – a Northern Rhone Ranger by domicile, but a Burgundian at heart, making wines that are luminous and bright with lower alcohol levels and a strong mineral core.
This Pinot Noir has been nurtured from start to finish. Meticulously managed vineyards, hand sorted grapes and gentle cellar practices have resulted in a wine that displays beautifully defined red berry fruits, an intriguing hint of violets on the nose and a rounded structure imparted by subtle use of French oak.
A red blend of Pinotage and Petit Verdot grapes resulting in a wine which has an intensely dark blueish colour. A full bodied rich wine with supple soft tannins but which has a lively long finish. The nose has a hint of cinnamon, blueberries, fruit cake and wild heath on the nose.
Heady combination of liquorice, aniseed, black and red berries on the nose, all underpinned by hints of truffle, exotic mushrooms and spice. Smooth, velvety entry opens into an elegant mouthful of fruits – preserved raspberries and cherries – surrounded by oak-induced spice flavours of grated cloves and sandalwood.
