20 Years of Limited Edition
Dear Jamie,
 
Recently we received a sneak preview of the 20th Anniversary Limited Editions. We've been so excited that we've had a hard time keeping it a secret but now we can let you in on it!
Without further ado, JUST FINE WINE and Winexpert proudly present to you this year's incredible lineup comprised of the Top Five Most Popular Limited Edition Wines from the Last 20 Years.....
South African ShirazJANUARY: SOUTH AFRICAN SHIRAZ
(Originally offered in January 2006)
 

The Wine: This wine has a dense, chewy blackberry, earthiness and robust character. This medium/full bodied wine almost begs for early drinking, with spice and rich fruit, but the bold tannins and rich jamminess (typical of Shiraz) will allow it to improve with age for a further 2 years.
 

The Food: The pepper, plums and red fruit aromas and abundant tannins blend wonderfully with barbecue, grilled red meat and stews.
Sweetness Code: 0
Trio BlancaJANUARY: CALIFORNIA LAKE COUNTY TRIO BLANCA (DRY)
(Originally offered in January 2005)
 
The Wine: A unique blend of three grapes, Trio Blanca is an outstanding white wine that showcases bright fruit flavours, excellent structure, and a long finish. Pinot Blanc contributes the delicate floral character and full body while Chenin Blanc gives a wonderful melony-honeyed aroma with hints of apple. The third grape variety, Sauvignon Blanc contributes zesty acidity and aromas of gooseberry and herbs. After six months ageing, the Sauvignon Blanc will dominate with zest and crispness. After a year, the Chenin Blanc's honey and melon will come out, and at 18 months to two years the Pinot Blanc will show a perfumed floweriness and lingering structure.
The Food: Enjoy by itself or serve Trio Blanca with seafood, chicken or vegetarian dishes.
Sweetness Code: 0
Australian Petit VerdotFEBRUARY: AUSTRALIAN PETIT VERDOT
(Originally offered in April 2004)
 
 
The Wine: Best described as a 'Super Cabernet', it makes dark, rich wines, with wonderfully concentrated flavours of spice, blackberry and blackcurrant. With smooth, gripping tannins and an elegant structure leading to a magnificent boldly oaked finish, this is a wine for long term ageing and special occasions.
 
 
The Food: Excellent when paired with steak, prime rib, lamb, intense cheeses, and game.
Sweetness Code: 0
MARCH: PACIFIC QUARTET (OFF-DRY)
Pacific Quartet(Originally offered in March 2007)

The Wine: This wine showcases bright fruit, excellent structure and a long finish. Vidal from British Columbia gives spiciness and stone fruit. Chenin Blanc from California gives a wonderful melony-honeyed aroma with hints of apple. Gewurztraminer from Washington contributes lychee, rose petals and floral notes, and Muscat from Australia's Murray-DarlingValley gives wonderful grapey notes with dried fruit and hints of orange peel.
The Food: This wine has a range of fruit character and enough acidity to stand up to a wide range of foods, particularly spicy and savoury dishes, including Thai cuisine, grilled fish, herbed roast chicken or barbecued salmon. Although delicious right on bottling day, drinking it early would prevent it from showing it's best-after six months the Muscat and Vidal will dominate with spicy/grapey notes, after a year the Chenin Blanc's honey and melon will come out, and at 18 months to two years the Gewurztraminer will show a perfumed floweriness and lush structure.
Sweetness Code: 1 (off dry)
Italian BrunelloAPRIL: ITALIAN BRUNELLO
(Originally offered in April 2007)
 
The Wine: Brunello is a large-berried variety of the Sangiovese grape, most famous in Brunello di Montalcino. The flavour profile of Sangiovese is fruity, with strong natural acidity, a firm and elegant assertiveness and a robust finish that can extend surprisingly long. The aroma is generally subtle, with cherry, strawberry, blueberry, and violet notes. Medium-bodied but boldly tannic and intense, this gripping wine will begin to open up after six months, but the richer flavours will take at least 18 months to show, with cherry and spice dominating the long, fruity finish.
The Food: Brunello shines in the company of assertively flavoured foods. Hard cheeses such as Asiago and Parmigiano Reggiano are splendid accompaniments and the wines backbone of acids and tannins make it work well with rich and spicy foods like Italian sausages or lasagna.
Sweetness Code: 0
