All Saints Estate Pierre
All Saints Estate has become a favourite of ours in Hong Kong, and a favourite amongst the Wine Brothers Family. Not only are they great people (the dream team sibling combination of Eliza, Angela and Nick Brown), they make great wine. The Piere is a special wine for the whole family, and we are proud to help the family continue the legacy of their father, Peter.
FROM THE WINEMAKER
"Named in honour of Peter Brown on the date of his 60th birthday, this wine now carries far more resonance for all who work or play here at All Saints Estate. For vintage 2015 we have carefully crafted a blend of the traditional Bordeaux varieties, Cabernet Sauvignon (48%), Merlot (35%), Cabernet Franc (17%). Each of these varieties brings something special to the blend: Cabernet Sauvignon the lovely berry flavours and fine tannins, Cabernet Franc gives lifted floral notes and the Merlot a rich mid-palate.
It is a medium bodied wine of deep ruby colour with aromas of cassis, violets and mixed spice. The palate is firm with structural tannins and fine acid balance, ideal for cellaring."
On release, Pierre is great with all kinds of red meat dishes; Peter though preferred it with a Porterhouse steak.
JC SCORE 8/10
Lovely wine. Elegant more than big. Very Euro in style.
