New Wines from Sine Qua Non
We have just received this year’s allocation of new wines from Sine Qua Non – a massive three bottles each of the Shooter Syrah 2010 and Five Shooter 2010.
I don’t know much about the wines yet but though I would share the labels with you because they are pretty funky as one has grown accustomed to expect from Elaine and Manfred Krankl.
Unfortunately, by the time you read this, the few bottle of wine we had will almost definitely be sold!! Please check though, I might have a bottle left.
Here are the latest reviews,
Sine Qua Non Five Shooter Syrah 2010
“The 2010 Syrah No Name as of Yet is laced with blackberries, blueberries, spices, mint and graphite. It shows the medium-bodied personality of the vintage in its energetic, nuanced fruit and notable persistence. Layers of fruit build to a refined finish laced with blueberries, blackberries, violets and crushed rocks. All the registers — from low to high — are filled out. The 2010 is 85% Syrah, 5% Grenache, 3% Petite Syrah, 5% Roussanne and 2% Viognier, mostly from estate vineyards. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025.” 94-96 points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
Sine Qua Non Five Shooter Grenache 2010
“The 2010 Grenache (No Name as of Yet) is rich, deep and seductive. Dark red cherries, plums, roses, licorice and mint wrap around the palate in this beautifully layered wine. The 2010 possesses gorgeous detail and nuance to match the silky, refined tannins. This is an impeccable, long, mineral-infused wine with a great future. The 2010 is 75% Grenache, 16% Syrah. 2.5% Mourvedre. 4.5% Roussanne and 2% Viognier, from Eleven Confessions (58%), Cumulus (38%) and Bien Nacido (4%). Anticipated maturity: 2014-2022.” 94-96 points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
