Winemaker Marjorie Gallet’s Effet Papillon Rouge is a terrific blend of Grenache, Syrah and Carignane, harvested from the iron rich soil just outside of Rivesaltes at the base of Pyrenees. This one is a vibrant wine, with aromas of wild black raspberries and sweet spices. The mid palate is rich and velvety, with a core of sweet black fruit that finishes fresh, long and silky. At the price, it’s one of the easier no-brainer case buys we offer.
99 Points (Wine of the Year), Tim Atkin
98 Points, Decanter – 97 Points, Vinous
Each year this wine further makes a case for itself as one of the best made in the world, not just South Africa. Callie Louw’s Porseleinberg is magnificent, a pure joy to drink, a collector and is sold out pretty much every single place on the planet besides here right now. This one received it’s highest ever score from Neil Martin and Vinous with a 97-point review in which he deemed the wine, “…utterly refined and intense yet sophisticated. A quite stunning wine.” Matt Walls of Decanter echoed that sentiment in their 98-point review calling the wine, “a truly great Syrah.”
95 Points (Editors’ Choice), Wine Enthusiast
Their ridiculously high quality across the board is what earned them statements such as Decanter calling them, “New Zealand’s First Growth” and Robert Parker, Jr. calling them “New Zealand’s greatest winery.” Then there’s wines like today’s Hawke’s Bay Syrah, a highly rated, super fun drinking Syrah that are so good that Jancis Robinson even called Te Mata, “a national treasure.” Using mainly Syrah from their famous Bullnose Vineyard in the revered Bridge Pa Triangle, and the now famous Gimblett Gravels, this one comes roaring right out the gates. It’s powerful, yet not clunky – it’s structurally sound and well balanced with red and black fruits and spicy notes.
