2017 Brecon Albarino

Brecon was initially considered Barking Mad for hanging their hats on an Albarino. The wine of course is nothing but serious. Particularly after a previous vintage scored 96 points twice in two days. Aromatically it jumps from the glass with hints of elderflower and lily blossom. The palate is varietally true, being all citreen, with crisp fresh limes dominating. So refreshing. The finish is surprisingly structured with a softness and biscuity toastiness reminiscent of a good champagne.

2017 Brecon Conviction

Here you get the crisp refreshing approachability of a super premium Grenache Blanc deftly melded with a trio of stylistically disparate Viogniers. Somehow that works superbly. Don’t ask how, must be the magic of the craft. In time expect stone fruit flavors to dominate, such as nectarines and peaches, while clean citrus characters currently shine through. Wonderfully layered aromatics, rich golden straw color and a very intriguing palate. It's the consummate al fresco food wine. A veritable salad bowl of citrus and stone fruit characters.

2017 Brecon True Acacia Head Albarino

You just have to admire what Acacia wood does to this grapefruity Central Coast Albarino. It brings white peach and nectarine fruit nuances to the aromatics.  Adds additional structure/richness in the mid palate without bringing those pesky toasty or vanilla influences. Naturally, it’s amazingly seafood/salad friendly thanks to its crisp citrusy backbone.

"Lots of spiced apple, salty minerality, and tart citrus emerge from the 2017 True Acacia Head, which is 100% Albariño. It’s a smoking good example of this variety and is medium-bodied, crisp, and straight-up delicious. Drink it over the coming year."

2017 Brecon Viognier

A Viognier with one “trench” foot in each camp. Don’t get us wrong we love the crispness of a cool climate Viognier. Also, we just love the mid palate viscosity combined with tropical aromatics of a more sunblessed version. But have you ever tried the combination! Truly the best of both worlds.

The riper stone fruit flavors, think peaches and nectarines, are dictated by sun drenched blocks  high on the slopes above Adelaida road. While clean citrus characters and floral notes shine through from Paragons fog prone vineyard in the heart of Old Edna.

"The nose is a blend of red apple, pear and gardenia carried on vanilla/marzipan. The palate entry is a lush peach, vanilla and pear with an oily core of dried peach skin and banana finishing with sweet dried apricot. Drink 2018 –2023."

2017 Haggis Basher Syrah/Viognier

Mandarin skin is the classic descriptor for a Syrah/Viognier co-ferment. It’s certainly detectable on the finish of this spectacular example. Perhaps it leans a little more towards overtones of orange peel than your liddle cuties! From a food perspective we are assuredly safe in speculating that it pairs remarkably well with the Scottish national dish. Since 1971, Haggis has actually been banned in the USA. Consequently you would have to jump on a plane with your “bonnie wee lassie” and a bottle of Brecon to test the said theorem. The name actually hales from the discovery of a particularly tight, gnarly cave passage under the Brecon Beacons National park. Imagination is a wonderful thing!
