2017 'Eaglepoint Ranch' Counoise, Broc Cellars

What a seductive charm, light transparent red colour - pepper, mace, earth and cherry . Soft and delicate, fresh and pretty in the mouth - a caress. Super fresh and long on the finish. A little beauty

Following a trip to the United States late in 2013, one of the two Californian producers that I liked best of all was Broc Cellars; they were wines that displayed finesse, complexity, brightness and, most importantly, drink-ability !  I resolved immediately to try and import them into Australia. No easy task..Chris Brockway is a star who make precious little wine. Each is expressive, sensitive and most of all - delicious.
