Macallan Rare Cask Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Color: Mahogany. Nose: Opulent, yet soft and slightly meandering, picture an orchestra setting up: quiet vanilla with deep notes, already in tune; raisin bold and booming, though only in spells; chocolate a star performer, but not a standout; a sweet ensemble of apple, lemon and orange, beautifully balanced with a spicy quartet of root ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg and clove. Then oak conducts, mature and elegant, with patience only time delivers. Palate: The spicy quartet leads, loud and full, unwavering in their performance. Raisin dares to temper - and succeeds!! - but oak takes control; timeless, polished, rich and resonating. Vanilla and chocolate compliment each other in the background Finish: Light citrus zest, yet full and warming.

Greywacke Sauvignon Blanc 2017Created from select parcels of fruit grown in prime vineyard sites; this is a deliciously aromatic, finely balanced wine. An exuberant style, steeped in grapefruit, lemon and stone fruit character - a sauvignon blanc with considerable concentration and minerality, yet retaining the freshness and zest expected of the variety. This is a mouth-filling, multi-layered wine with considerable ripeness and palate structure, balanced by juicy acidity and a refreshingly crisp flinty finish.
