Don Miguel Commenge 2015
Don Miguel Comenge Reserva is a unique wine made only in exceptional years. The secret lies in the exceptional vineyard it comes from: its soil, its orientation, the climate and low-level production.The 2015 vintage of the Don Miguel is a blend of Tempranillo and Cabernet Sauvignon, aged in new French oak barrels for 18 months. This is a truly enjoyable wine with an intense ruby color and expressive aromas reminiscent of cassis, cherry and plum, together with a hint of dark chocolate and tobacco flavors. The production of this wine is limited to 12,900 bottles per year and have through the years been awarded by Robert Parker, Ultimate Wine Challenge, ABC guide to name a few.  

Paolo Manzone Barolo Meriame 2014
In the middle of Piemonte, Paolo and Luisella Manzone cultivate vines which are embedded in the hilly landscape of Langhe. The estate is located in the middle of their best vineyard Meriame where vines are up to 70 years old!  Their Barolo is aged for 24 months  in a mix of Slovenian and French oak. The result is a ripe, ruby red colored Barolo which is full-bodied and powerful in taste. Notes of plum and cherry combine with bramble and lead to a long finish. In the Forbes article Paolo Manzone - A Great Success Story From Serralunga the wine writer Tom Hylan reviews 2014 vintage of their Barolo as excellent value and states that Paolo Manzone is a truly notable vintner.

Kranz Kalmit Ilbesheim Spätburgunder GG dry 2015
Some land, vineyards and cattle – that was the unspectacular beginning of the winery Kranz in 1948. Hilda and Willi Dennhart found the winery and mainly sold bulk wine until their daughter Liselotte took over the winery in the 70s. Together with her husband, she successfully run the business until the next generation followed their footsteps: Boris and Kai. Boris is responsible for all the cellar work since his teens. He already saw the potential of the Kalmit vineyard when people said it was too steep and inconvenient. Limestone is the basic soil of the vineyard and allows the vines to root deeply to get enough water. Because of the southern hillside, the grapes enjoy sun through the whole day which leads to ripe and powerful wines. This Pinot aged in Barriques for 12 months and therefore has a cherry nose with precise notes of spicy herbs. The structure is juicy and elegant with some soft tannins.

This is a Großes Gewächs GG  (Great Growth), a designation for top-level dry wines from sites classified as Grosse Lage.
