Fareham Wine Cellar and Sherry in The News

Sherry, a vastly underarted drink

Fame at last. If you ever wondered what I looked like, here you go! A good plug for Fareham Wine Cellar and Sherry.

An article which appeared in The News (Portsmouth) on Tuesday 13th November 2011.

Fareham Wine Cellar and Sherry in The News

Just a little bit of information about Sherry, try condensing that subject into 300 words, here is my original article too!!

Sherry, Not Just For Christmas

It’s getting close to Christmas and that time of year when people start to think about dusting off their bottle of Harvey’s Bristol Cream which they bought for Granny last year and has been lurking in the back of the cupboard ever since. However, contrary to popular belief, Sherry, once opened does not keep forever. A sweet, Cream Sherry might be alright to drink after a few months in a cupboard but something like a light, floral and dry Fino Sherry oxidises quickly and can be passed its best in a matter of a week or so. So it’s time to treat oneself to a fresh bottle or two.

Types of Sherry

So which Sherry to drink? If you like a drier, light style try a Fino Sherry like Tio Pepe or perhaps Gutierrez Colosia. There is also Manzanilla which is essentially a Fino Sherry aged at the seaside town of Sanlucar de Barrameda (not far from Jerez where all other Sherry is made). Manzanilla therefore develops a slightly salty, tang along with the usual Fino Sherry notes – this makes it a great aperitif, try it with salted almonds, olives and Manchego cheese or, in fact, any sort of Tapas. Look for Bodegas Argueso Las Medallas or La Gitana.

If you like a sweeter wine, try a Cream (sweet) or Amontillado Sherry (normally medium dry). One of my favourite styles is an Oloroso. Oloroso is a much more aromatic style of Sherry and has characteristics of oak, walnuts and dried fruits on the palate. It can be medium dry or dry in style. I prefer a drier one and it goes really well with nuts, particularly walnuts, Iberian ham or Chorizo. Look out for Sanchez Romate Don José Oloroso.

Dessert Sherry

One of the lesser known Sherries is Pedro Ximenez (PX). Pedro Ximenez is a particular grape variety that is used to make very sweet Sherry. It is also used to sweeten Cream sherry. The best PX Sherries are a bit like liquid raisins and make great dessert wines.  The Sanchez Romate PX Cisneros is very sweet and unctuous but with balancing acidity, creamy raisins, espresso coffee and a touch of dark chocolate on the palate. PX is great with blue cheese, pastries and, dare I say it, Christmas Pudding.  If you are feeling a little bit lazy just pour some over some vanilla ice cream!

Peller Estate Wine Tasting

Peller Estate Canadian Sparkling and Icewine Tasting

with Peter Ayling @ Fareham Wine Cellar

Please find details below of our next wine tasting at Fareham Wine Cellar and some diary dates for our December Christmas wine tastings.
The European Agent for Peller Estate, Peter Ayling, will be hosting a tasting of Canadian sparkling and dessert wines at Fareham Wine Cellar on Saturday 24th November. The idea of the tasting is to explore food / wine pairing with some smoked salmon, blue cheese, dark chocolate and white chocolate and 5 different wines from Peller Estate – 2 different sparkling wines and three different Icewines.

For this reason we are going to try something a little different to make the wine tasting a little easier to run – there will be half an hour time slots for groups of up to 6 people. More information, dates, times etc. below.

So if you have never tried Canadian wine this would be a great opportunity to get a primer on Canadian sparkling and Icewines, including a very unusual red Icewine made from Cabernet Franc as well as a Riesling and a Vidal. Ideal wine for the Christmas festivities!

Here is some information on the wines we will be tasting,

The Peller family have been making wine in Niagara for three generations. At 43º latitude, the Niagara Peninsula in Ontario, home to Peller Estate, is within the same latitudinal range as Southern France, Rioja in Spain, Chianti Classico in Italy and Oregon in the USA. The Niagara Peninsula is the only place in the world where every single year the summers are so warm red wine grapes can be ripened, but the winters are cold enough to make Icewine (but never so cold that the vines do not survive).

Grapes for Peller Estate Icewines are always picked at temperatures of at least -10ºC, with the grapes frozen on the vine and hand-picked in the middle of the cold Canadian night. Once picked, the grapes are pressed immediately while still frozen. Authentic Icewine is very different from other dessert wines; prior to being picked in late December, the grapes freeze and then thaw 8 to 10 times. Each time they freeze, new and more complex flavours are released into the juice from the grape. The signature of great Icewine is the balancing tension between sweetness and acidity. These sublime wines are guaranteed to make an indelible impression on you – once tasted, never forgotten!

The sparkling wines are made using the traditional ‘méthode’. The Peller Estate Ice Cuvée sparkling is made from hand-picked Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes. When the lees are disgorged, a ‘dosage’ of Vidal Icewine is added (110ml). Enhanced by the burst of flavour from Vidal Icewine, a sparkling wine of unique style and finesse is created. The Ice Cuvée Rosé is made in a similar way except, as well as the white Vidal Icewine used as dosage, some of Peller’s red Icewine, made from Cabernet Franc, is added too.

Sparkling Wines

NV Ice Cuvée Sparkling, Peller Estate  Very fine bubbles spiral upwards, through this brilliant yellow straw coloured wine. The bouquet of apricot, yeast and ripe apple, with hints of honey, are followed by tropical fruits on the palate and a refreshing sweet grapefruit finish.

NV Ice Cuvee Rosé, Peller Estate
A medium-bodied, refreshing sparkler that is slightly off-dry, yet finishes dry as a result of the delicate tannins from the Cabernet Franc. On the nose there are wonderful aromas of strawberry, peach juice, watermelon and currant. On the palate this wine is bursting with red berries and currants which linger through on the finish with an added note of spice.

Dessert Wines

2010 Vidal Icewine, Peller EstatePeller Estate Vidal Icewine

A gold yellow colour with an aromatic bouquet of lemon marmalade, carmelized oranges, golden pineapple and a touch of honey. A rich, medium to full-bodied wine with explosive flavours of honey, golden pineapple, star anise and brown sugar. Sweet citrus and star fruit linger on the finish.

 

 

2007 Riesling Icewine, Peller Estate

Peller Riesling has a delicate straw yellow colour with an intriguing aroma of lemon drops, quince, Bartlett pear and golden raspberries, with a touch of floral honey. On the palate this Icewine displays a luscious yet elegant mouth-feel with fruit flavours of lemon, melon, papaya, mango and orange. It has a refreshing acidity and a long length.

2010 Cabernet Franc Icewine, Peller EstatePeller Estate Cabernet Franc Icewine

Deep salmon pink colour with an aromatic bouquet of rhubarb, raspberry, blackberry a touch of spice and herbal notes. A rich mouth-feel with wonderful fruit flavours of red berries and rhubarb. Red currants, spice and pomegranate on a long lingering finish. Soft delicate tannins and the perfect balance of sweetness and acidity provide great mouth-feel.

Motorhead Shiraz shifts 300,000 bottles in Sweden!

News arrives that Motorhead have shifted over 300,000 bottles of their Motorhead Shiraz in Sweden since it debuted in 2010. Okay, not really mega-interesting but I really wanted to pass on this cool photo of Lemmy with a bottle of Motorhead Shiraz.

Lemmy Kilmister, lead singer, bass player and founder of the band, puts it: “My advice is — approach it with caution. I mean, wine is deceptive, anything can happen.”

Sadly, for Motorhead fans in the UK, this wine seems to be only available in Sweden from the Systembolaget

Motorhead Shiraz, produced in Southeast Australia by Broken Back Winery, is described as having “a very fruity aroma with flavours of vanilla, blackberries, plums, eucalyptus and liquorice. It is full-bodied with soft rounded tannins and packs a real punch.”

Read more via BLABBERMOUTH.NET – MOTÖRHEAD’s Signature Wine Sells More Than 300,000 Bottles.

This follows on from the successful launch of Motorhead Bastards Lager. Other metal bands with wine labels include Slayer, Kiss, Whitesnake and Sammy Hagar (Van Halen) launched Cabo Wabo Tequila. Take a look at more complete of celebrity wine projects.

Luis Pato – Pato Rebel, a red wine from Beiras DO

Luis Pato, the Rebel Winemaker

Pato Rebel is made by Luis Pato at Quinta do Ribeirinho, in Bairrada, where the Pato family have been making wine since the 18th Century. Luis Pato is a maverick, ground breaking and imaginative wine-maker who took over from his father Joao Pato and made his first wine, a pure Baga, in 1980. In 1985 Pato introduced started to introduce new ideas to Bairrada such as de-stemming of Baga grapes and the maturation of wine in new French casks. Luis Pato is continually looking forward, he is a genuine rebel, who, with a mix of science and revolution has introduced many innovations including rotary fermenters. This, amongst other things, has led to him being ostracised by the Bairraida DO (he left the DO in 1999). His wines are now labelled as Beiras DO, a Vinho Regional DO that covers both Bairrada and Dao. Ironically, he is now probably the best-known wine-producer in the area. He has now been joined by his daughter Filipa who has her own label Filipa Pato Wines.

Luis Pato has 60 hectares of vineyards which are planted with the red grape varieties Baga, Touriga Nacional and Tinto Cao. The white grape varieties planted are Maria Gomes, Bical, Cercial da Bairrada and Sercialinho (relatives of the Sercial of Madeira).

Baga is the traditional red grape of the Bairrada region but recent law changes have meant that more producers are using alternative grapes. According to Filipa Pato, Luis Pato’s daughter, “unfortunately this grape is being abandoned in the region in a dramatic fast way.  Part of the heritage of old well located Baga vineyards was lost in the last decade.”

Luis Pato RebelLuis Pato Rebel

Pato Rebel is designed to be a wine that shows that Baga can be aromatic with soft tannins. It is a blend comprised of 90% Baga, 9% Touriga Nacional and 1% of the local white grape variety Bical. It is made with a shorter maceration period than some of his other wines with strict control of fermentation temperature in order to produce a wine that is good for drinking early, from a year after harvest.

Luis Pato says that Baga can resemble both Nebbiolo from Barolo and Pinot Noir from Burgundy but describes the Rebel as being closer in profile to the aromatic delicacy and strength of the latter.

Luis Pato Rebel Tasting Notes

Pato Rebel has aromas of blackberry, dark chocolate, spices and slight resinous notes. The palate is full, but has an elegance typical only of Baga, and shows bright red fruits, juicy black fruit (blackberry and blackcurrant) and fine, earthy tannins. Try with red meat dishes, grilled or baked fish or barbeques.

Pato Rebel Press Review

“One of the finest Portuguese winemakers, Luis Pato also likes to portray himself as a rebel against the wine establishment. This wine revels in its pure Baga character, packed with earthy tannins yet also rich in its black currant fruit.”  89 Points, Wine Enthusiast

Luis Pato is also a member of Baga Friends, a group of like-minded Baga producers who have got together to educate the consumer about the Baga grape variety.

The Baga Friends are,

António Rocha (Buçaco Wines)Baga Friends
Dirk Niepoort (Niepoort)
Filipa Pato (Filipa Pato Wines)
François Chasans (Quinta da Vacariça)
João Póvoa (Kompassus Wines)
Luis Pato (Luis Pato Wines)
Mário Sérgio Nuno (Quinta das Bágeiras)

Fareham Wine Cellar’s Herb Toilet

We happened to have a spare toilet hanging around and some spare herbs. So, naturally we came up with the concept of the Herb Toilet. Looking left to right we have thyme, sage (at the back), rosemary and, bringing up the rear, as it were, some chives. Unfortunately we lost the cistern over the winter when it got full of water which froze thereby cracking the cistern, otherwise that would have made a great two tier planter. But, it is no good blaming the cistern.

Make your own Herb Toilet!

If you want to make a Herb Toilet, all you really need to do is block the toilet off somehow, we used an old sieve, fill it full of compost, plant your herbs, water and you’re away. So now we have fresh herbs any time we want, very useful on the odd Saturday when it is sunny enough to have a barbeque in our back yard.

Any other Herb Toilets our there?

If there are please let me know, or even send me a photograph!

Gimblett Gravels and a new vintage from Esk Valley Wines

A new vintage Gimblett Gravels Wine from Esk Valley Wines

Gimblett Gravels is perhaps New Zealand’s premier red wine growing region. Esk Valley is a boutique winery located in the Hawke’s Bay wine-growing region of New Zealand’s North Island. Esk sources fruit from Hawke’s Bay, including the very highly regarded Gimblett Gravels, and Marlborough. Their most famous wine is Esk Valley The Terraces sourced from fruit grown terraced banks above the winery, but there are also some very high quality wines in the Winemaker’s Reserve range. See below.

Gimblett Gravels Terroir

The Gimblett Gravels are what remains of the Omahu Channel of the Ngaruroro River riverbed which dramatically changed course after the 1876 floods depositing the famous gravels. The old riverbed comprises the 800 hectares of Gimblett Gravels and is composed of (unsurprisingly) gravels and heavy sands with a thin layer of silt, it is highly infertile and free draining. Gimblett Gravels is located some 15 kms inland and is therefore not subject to the same cooling coastal winds as many of the other Hawke’s Bay growing regions which means it gets pretty hot. This combined with heat retention of the Gimblett Gravels stone also means the ground gets quite hot too. This creates a significantly warmer meso-climate. All this creates quite low vigour vineyards where the vines put all their effort into ripening grapes rather than vegetative growth. The low water table also means that irrigation is necessary, certainly when establishing vineyards, and a certain amount to manage established vineyards.

Grape Varieties in Planted in Gimblett Gravels

Originally the area was quarried by the Gimblett familyand the land was not seen as particularly useful and the region was first planted with grapes in only 1981 by Chris Pask of the CJ Pask Winery. Prior to 1991 only 20 hectares of vineyards were planted, soon growing to over 200ha in 1997 with a further 400has planted since 1998. 80% of the grapes planted in Gimblett Gravels are red and the focus  is on red Bordeaux varieties, mainly Merlot, Cabernet and a smaller amount of Malbec and Cabernet Franc. The first Syrah was planted in 1993 and account for only 7% of red grape plantings, but produces some great wines with Craggy Range being one of the best. There are also small plantings of Pinot Noir, Pinotage, Petit Verdot, Gamay Noir, Sangiovese, Montepulciano and Tempranillo. The remaining 20% is planted with mostly Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc with small amounts of Arneis, Gewurztraminer, Pinot Gris, Riesling and Viognier.

Esk Valley Winemkers Gimblett Gravels
Merlot / Cabernet Sauvignon / Malbec 2007

Esk Valley Winemakers Reserve Gimblett GravelsEsk Valley Winemakers Reserve wines are made from grapes selected from the wineries best and low yielding vineyards in the Gimblett Gravels. The Winemakers range of wines is almost as iconic as Esk Valley’s The Terraces and are , rightly, highly regarded. This Winemakers red blend was also the wine which pioneered the use of Malbec in Bordeaux blends in New Zealand. “One of the very best winemakers in New Zealand” (Tim Atkin, The Observer).

Grapes are hand picked, destemmed and then fermented in Esk’s open top, 75 year old, concrete fermentation vats where it is hand-plunged and left on the skins prior to being pressed off into barrels for malolactic fermentation.  Each parcel of grapes is vinified separately before the final blend. 60 to 70% of the wine is aged in new French oak barrels for 21 months.

Winemaker’s Notes

This Reserve Blend is widely regarded as one of the finest of New Zealand’s red wines. This 2007 vintage is deeply coloured with aromatics hinting at black fruits, dried herbs, cocoa and cedar. The flavours typical of Gimblett Gravel merlot blends tend toward fruitcake, cherry, chocolate and oak spice. The palate as a young wine is firm and tannic, needing time to truly show its best; however, the potential is evident. Dry and long finishing this is a fine vintage for this blend.

Quinta de Macedos – A Small Douro Wine Estate in the Rio Torte Valley

Quinta de Macedos – Douro Heritage

Quinta de Macedos is a Douro Wine Estate located in the heart of the Rio Torto Valley (a tributary of the Douro).  Owner Paul Reynolds bought this 7 hectare vineyard in 1998 and built a new main House, Winery and Wine Lodge which was completed in 2002. Prior to 2000 the grapes from this estate were sold to the large Port Wine Houses but , since 2000, Paul has been making Quinta do Macedos wines at the new winery using only grapes sourced from the estate.

The oldest parts of the vineyard were planted between 1920 and 1945 and the old, low-yielding vines are maintained organically without the use of artificial pesticides or fertilisers. Very steep terraces mean that horse and plough are used to till organic material back into the schistous soil every fourth year. Grape pomace is also returned to the vineyards. The natural wild flowers that cover the terraces are controlled through repeated trimming.

The vineyards are located at between 100m and 200m above sea level and have a variety of aspects facing north, west and east thus giving a broad, complex maturation profile. This varied aspect allows different parcels to be separated and harvested and vinified in small batches when they are deemed ready. This in turn allows Macedos more control of the fermentation process and more control of the final blends.

Quinta de Macedos is undergoing a renewal process which started almost as soon as the new winery was finished and various sections of vineyard have been replanted where vines have died or stopped producing fruit. In keeping with the sustainable and natural approach at Quinta de Macedos, only naturally occurring indigenous yeasts are used. Low levels of sulphur are maintained and the wines are bottled unfiltered.

There are three wines made at Quinta de Macedos, Quinta de Macedos itself, made from the oldest vines (1926),  Lagar de Macedos from the younger vines (1946 plantings) and Pinga which is a blend from all the vineyards plus some grapes from neighbouring vineyards.

The total vineyard area is now 10 hectares (2 hectares were planted with traditional Douro grapes in 2000) and there are 16 grape varieties, some 45000 vines, planted on dry stone terraces.

Quinta de Macedos 2005

2005 was another dry vintage at Quinta de Macedos and saw the early maturation of grapes with the berries showing wonderful concentration of flavour and ripeness. The grapes were initially roller crushed and then foot trodden for a total of 20 man hours in granite lagares. The wine is run off, pressed and blended in steel vats for prolonged residual fermentation and malolactic. The wine was then racked into new Allier oak barriques in February 2006 for 22 months.  Bottled unfiltered in April 2008 and release to market 10 months later. Production is only 2300 bottles.

Quinta de Macedos wines

Tasting Notes

Quinta de Macedos shows great balance and freshness with aromas of dark, black fruits (blackcurrant), cedar-y, spicy, dried fruits, prune and garrigue. The palate is bold, well-structured and very complex with more black fruit and spice (pepper) and a good, long finish.

Press Review

“An intense, very port-like dark, schist-dusted nose heralds a heavyweight wine with a heft of fruit and tannins, velcro tannins at that.  While Pinga, the junior wine, is just starting to open up, this remains firmly off limits at the moment.  But there’s a magnificence to its uncompromising form and a lively pulse of red and black fruits to come back to once the tannins recede.” Sarah Ahmed, The Wine Detective

Lagar de Macedos 2003

A very hot August 2003 saw the vines shut down until the last week when the weather cooled and the vines came out of dormancy, this meant a relatively late harvest (September 18th) was required to attain good phenolic maturity. The grapes were picked in the cool early morning, into ventilated boxes with a rigorous triage. The grapes were crushed and trodden over 9 days in lagares. Fermentation and malolactic occurs in stainless steel vats over 40 days. The wine is racked into new Allier oak barrels in January 2004 and aged for 15 months. Bottled unfiltered in 2006 with a limited production of just 2000 bottles.

Quinta de Macedos wines

Tasting Notes

Lagar de Macedos is a full and rich wine.  The wine is packed full of ripe black fruits, dried fruit, cedar-y pencil box and balsamic notes. The palate is big and rich but not over-ripe with a good degree of freshness for such a hot year and full tannins, with firm structure and good length. Drink 10 – 15 years from vintage.
