Video Round-Up: 10-year-old South African Shiraz

Video One: Culraithin Shiraz 2000
The Kerr family, who are behind the Culraithin label, can trace their routes back to 9th century Ireland. Culraithin is a derivative of the Gaelic Cuil Rai(th)in, which was later anglicised to Coleraine, where the family’s more recent ancestors lived and farmed in the 1800’s. There’s 20% off South Africa for the month of May, which means this beauty from Paarl is now coming in well under the €20 mark. A real steal for a ten-year-old wine of this quality.

Video Two: Domaine de Vedilhan Sauvignon Blanc 2008
This Sauvignon Blanc shows exactly what the Languedoc region is capable of. We would compare it to a good Pouilly Fumé without the price tag.  Flinty minerality and crisp, clean fruit. This month, buy 5 get one free.
Video Three: Long Neck Merlot 2008
Another super, everyday drinking wine from Long Neck. Many are attracted by the pretty label, but the best sign of a good value product is repeat purchase. With 20% off South Africa, this is wine to buy by the case.
Video Four: Tabalí Reserva Sauvignon Blanc 2008
Jay Miller, RP’s Wine Advocate, had this to say; “…a mouth-watering, vibrant, lengthy Sauvignon that way over-delivers for its humble price.” The quality from this northerly region of Chile continues to astound.
Video Five: Langmeil Blacksmith Cabernet Sauvignon 2006
In terms of critics points, this is among our top wines. A Cabernet born and bred in Shiraz country, this spectacular wine has gained outstanding complexity after being matured in new (20%) and seasoned (80%) French oak for two years before release.
