Global Icons Release 2022
September has become one of the most exciting times in the fine wine calendar. We have a wealth of releases expected in the coming weeks, including some of the hottest vinous delights on earth.
Just in case you think we are exaggerating, in a single month, we will see the release of Latour, Opus One, Inglenook, Phelps Insignia and Seña, among others... can they be described as anything but the pre-eminent wines of their regions?
Pre-order now to make sure none of these iconic masterpieces passes you by. When they do hit the market in the coming weeks, without fail, they will sell out with remarkable speed.
Wine Advocate (95-97)Blended and set to be bottled a month after my visit, the 2018 The Armagh Shiraz looks to be a near-repeat of the impressive 2016. It will be given three years in bottle prior to release, so it's still a few years out. That said, it combines luxurious notes of maple syrup with bright red berries in what sounds like a dessert, yet it maintains a sense of savoriness and drinkability. It's full-bodied, richly concentrated and velvety in texture, with a tremendously long, mouthwatering finish.
