Mixed 12 of Swig's February Favourites

Blink and you miss it! February seems to have flown past without even having the courtesy to nod at us as it went by. Saying that, we have had a chance to try some truly scrumptious wines this month as well as revisit some of our old favourites. Here are a section for your delectation.

2 x Bill Downie Petit Verdot 2015

A rich, inky colour, this wine jumps out of the glass at you with excitement and flavour. The nose is full of dark plums, fresh, juicy blackcurrants and cherry cordial. This lifted by savoury spice, a splash of tamarind and a touch of mint. The palate is surprisingly light with medium tannins, despite its full colour. Fresh and concentrated autumnal fruits predominate - more hedgerow blackcurrants and damsons - and just a hint of spice.

Grape: Petit verdot
2 x Red Claw Pinot Noir, Yabby Lake 2013

This wine manages to ooze with rich, hedonistic luxury at the same time as delivering racy, citrus acidity. Warm, savoury aromas. Ground black pepper, blood orange and crystallised rose petal. Horse sweat on leather hints at some lingering (but not unattractive) reductive character - present but softened. Vibrant, juicy red cherry and cranberry core. High-toned, fine-tuned. Crunchy sweet blueberry overlays broody notes of black cherry, liquorice, freshly ground coffee and cloves. That sublime earthy mushroom quality of Pinot Noir comes through after some time in the glass. Manages to be classic yet entirely New World all at once - forges its own, unique identity.

2 x Sentits Blancs Bodegas Puiggros 2014

SWiG Note: Honeysuckle, lemon pith, and clotted cream on the nose, with just a hint of struck match. There's orange flower water there too. This is definitely a "shove your nose in there a bunch of times because it'll be different with every sniff" sort of wine. The palate is a great combination of power and subtle nuance. There are some big flavours there - ripe tropical fruit notes, creamy touches, textured oak, but also lighter floral edges and gentle spice as well. This is quite awesome right now - a stonking mouth full of wine - but with age it will mellow a bit. Delicious now, but worth sticking down if you've got the patience. 13.5% Drink now - 2020

2 x Rully La Barre, Domaine Ninot 2014

From a family with a history in wine dating back to the fourteenth century this is a vineyard that makes traditional and delicious wine. Meticulous attention is made to all aspects of the winemaking with vineyards handled as organically as possible, grapes hand harvested and 12 to 18 months in oak barrels. The oak is light on the nose and palate allowing for the purity of the fruit and the minerality to shine through.

2 x Chianti Rufina 'Cedro' Lavacchio 2014

From the beautiful Lavacchio estate that champions organic farming and the organic lifestyle! The nose is earthy at first, but then reveals sweet and sour black cherries surrounded by fresh flower petals, wild herbs and a touch of mint. You could be walking along the Tuscan hills in a late autumn breeze, surveying the beautiful landscape. Those pretty floral notes are just beginning to really express themselves.
