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.

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

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 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 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.

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.  In a good vintage only about 20,000 cases of wine are made and subsequently sold on a strict allocation basis. Demand in Spain alone well exceeds the total quantity available.

Roll over: Anise, dark berries, plums, cherries, black olives, tea, sarsaparilla, juicy, fun.

Sagrantino from the Murray Darling, Victoria. This wine is fun…spicy nose of anise and dark berries. The palate has dark plums and cherries with a juicy centre. A back palate of crushed cherries linger.

SOS don’t want accolades or shining medals, they just wanted to make delicious wines that punch above their weight, are inclusive and most importantly are sociable; to be shared with friends at a favourite bar top, to have at home with hump day dinner, take with confidence to a dinner party or in the park with the gang on a sunny Sunday – wines for every day in every way. The team are extremely lucky and blessed to work with wonderful grape growers from all over Victoria who share their passion for interesting wines that speak of the place they come from. Whether it be from way down south in Mornington Peninsula, through to the Yarra Valley and all the way up to the famous Heathcote region. They make wine with as little added as possible except for good honest grapes.  SOS; not trying to change the world, just a couple of souls, one glass at a time.

Roll over: Expect all the black fruits – cherries, berries, currants, rose petals, earth, savoury, long.

Sangiovese from Yarra Glen, Victoria. The wine shows aromas of black fruits including black cherry, black currant and blackberry as well as subtle rose petal and earth. The palate is savoury and firmly structured with primary fruit notes coming to the fore. The finish is long well supported by the chewy tannin structure.
