Roll over: All the Amen Break wines are made with minimal winemaker intervention and a healthy dose of soul.

Amen Break are by brothers Matt and Steve Harrop.

We work with the rhythm of each vintage to find fruit that best expresses the season. Our Pinot Noir was grown at Zebra Vineyard on the northern elevations of the Bendigo area in Central Otago.

All the Amen Break wines are made with minimal winemaker intervention and a healthy dose of soul. To that we say Amen, Brother. 

The Amen Break is a legendary six second, four bar drum solo performed by Gregory Sylvester “G. C.”. Coleman in the song “Amen, Brother” performed by the 1960s funk and soul outfit The Winstons.

The Amen Break has become the most sampled drum beat in musical history. It is considered the foundation rhythmic beat for the much of the electronic musical genre (Trip Hop, Drum ’n Bass, Jungle, Psych Trance etc.) that exploded in the late 80’s and early 90s of last century.

Roll over: Brunello is the soul, the identity of Argiano: elegance, finesse and, at the same time, structure and long aging.

This wine holds the power and style of the fantastic 2015 vintage.  On the nose, very evident notes of plum and morello cherry typical of Brunello, but also a light spiciness, with well-integrated boisee. On the palate it expresses a great vivacity and energy. Well integrated tannins.

Villa Argiano lay claim to being the oldest wine estate in Montalcino, located below Saint'Angelo in Colle, some 8km from the famous wine town. Built in 1581 the Villa passed through many sets of hands over the centuries and in 1992, the current owner Noemi Marone Cinzano purchased the property. In the past the renown consultant, Giacomo Tachis, the man behind Sassacaia, was involved in the project and the Bordeaux varieties were planted but today Bordeaux-trained winemaker Hans Vinding-Diers holds the reins. The estates range of wines is superb and includes Suolo, their silky Sangiovese and stunning Brunello di Montalcino and Rosso di Montalcino

Roll over text : The joint vision that two great names of the wine world, Rothschild and Vega Sicilia.

Opaque ruby. A highly perfumed bouquet evokes black raspberry, cherry cola, potpourri and exotic spices, and smoky mineral and vanilla nuances build in the glass. Appealingly sweet, palate-coating red and blue fruit preserve, spicecake, mocha and candied lavender flavors show excellent depth as well as energy and back-end lift. Finishes impressively long, smoky and precise, with polished tannins adding framework and closing grip.

These are very elegant wines, where the harmony of their aromas and flavours show the authenticity of the land from where they come and its capacity to produce great wines.  Macán and Macán Clásico co-exist due to the desire to preserve the Bordeaux tradition to produce a first and second wine. Both always coexist and are treated exactly the same from the wine to the classification tasting. The different wine batches of the vintage are then separated, with the two wines being considered individually and showing the differences between them.

Dark violet. Expressive cherry and dark berry aromas are accented by oak spice, lavender, cola and tobacco flourishes. Sappy and expansive on the palate, offering spice-tinged cassis and cherry compote flavors supported by a core of smoky minerality. Gains sweetness and depth with air and finishes long and smooth, with steadily building tannins and resonating florality.

Roll over: Dry and nutty. The perfect aperitif

This is a pale and golden Sherry with delicate almond aromas. Light on the palate and slightly salty due to the aging cellars being located on the pier at El Puerto de Santa Maria. This wine is aged for 3+ years under flor or flower yeast.

One of the most famous categories of Sherry and is made with the help of flor – a kind of yeast that covers the maturing wine, giving it the idiosyncratic flavour that it possesses.

Roll over text : The independent member of the Vega Sicilia family. Pintia is young, intense and groundbreaking in nature.

Saturated ruby. Expansive cherry, black raspberry, potpourri and exotic spice aromas are complemented by subtle licorice and woodsmoke flourishes. Vibrant and sharply focused in the mouth, with a spine of juicy acidity adding focus to palate-staining black and blue fruit liqueur, violet pastille, mocha and spicecake flavors. The floral quality resonates emphatically on the clinging finish, which features lingering cherry and smoky mineral notes. There's noteworthy elegance here, a trait that's not exactly common for Toro.

Proud of its origin, it has managed to reinterpret the Vega Sicilia culture in an innovative, brave and daring manner, at the head of the emergence of a new generation of Toro wines.  Vega Sicilia is located 100 miles north of Madrid in the shallow Duero (Douro) river valley on the high remote plateau of Castilla y Léon. The altitude is over 700 metres creating a special climate; the cold nights and hot days during the crucial ripening period in September largely contribute to the uniqueness of Vega Sicilia.

Roll over: Multiple layers of toasted hazelnut, vanilla and incense with an aftertaste that goes on and on.

A brilliant amber colour, Bodega Urium’s beautiful Amontillado has been aged for 17 years. This lengthy ageing process has resulted in a mahogany hued sherry with aromas of toffee and raisin on the nose. It bursts into the mouth with multiple layers of toasted hazelnut, vanilla and incense with an aftertaste that goes on and on. 

A dry, neutral wine is made from Palomino grapes and is left to mature under a level of flor. Flor is a white crust that forms as the result of natural yeasts in the bodega. It feeds on oxygen and alcohol and gives the Sherry a distinct yeasty character. After at least two years under this crust, the wine is fortified to at least 17 percent, which kills the flor. The longer this period is, the stronger the yeast character will be in the finished wine.

Roll over text : Vega Sicilia is by far the most prestigious wine estate in Spain, with an almost mythical reputation for quality and rarity.

Opaque ruby. Primary dark fruit, floral and vanilla aromas are sharpened by a spicy suggestion of cracked pepper and woodsmoke, and licorice notes build in the glass. Juicy and smooth on the palate, offering densely packed, spice-laced bitter cherry, blackberry and fruitcake flavors that firm up slowly with aeration. Shows superb depth as well as energy on the impressively long finish, which is firmed by youthfully gripping tannins.  Pairs well with beef and venison.

Demand in Spain alone well exceeds the total quantity available.
