In-the-Press

Corney & Barrow In The Press

Achaval Ferrer Quimera 2008
‘Ambitious blends of Mendoza Malbec fruit with several Bordeaux varieties.  The former smoky, spicy and unmistakably Argentinian on the nose, quite seriously structured with firm, fine tannins, unashamedly weighty, but balanced and age worthy.’
Peter McCombie MW, Harpers Magazine (September 23rd)

Shiraz Eagle Vale 2005
‘Bouquet includes thyme, black olive, leather, sweet spice, balsamic and tobacco leaf.  Excellent concentration and complexity with an attractive creamy texture and soft tannins.  Open-knit style with a lean, minerally finish.. Gracefully mature.’  4****
Decanter Magazine (November 2011)

Shiraz Mad Dog Barossa Wines 2009
‘Farmyard, black fruit, mint, chocolate, spice, earth, medicinal notes and leather on the nose.  Rich and full with sweet vanilla oak, yet nicely balanced with it.’ Recommended.
Decanter Magazine (November 2011)

Cabernet Merlot Eagle Vale 2008
Top Value Pick – 5*****
‘Just 3km from the Indian Ocean, Eagle Vale has garnered worthy praise since its debut vintage in 2001.  This wine is graceful and refined, with herb and green pepper notes underscored by oaky, damson fruit characters.  Concentrated, savoury and fantastically enjoyable.’
Decanter Magazine (November 2011)

Que Bonito Cacareaba Rioja 2009
‘Stylish even so young.’
Liz Sagues, H&H (September 29th 2011)

Wine & Soul, Pintas 2008
‘Really elegant lift to the fruit and very fragant incense-like oak.  Lovely sweetness on the palate, with magical brightness to the acidity and very firm tannin structure.  Tight, ripe density.’ 4****, 18/20
Decanter Magazine (November 2011)
