COOPERS CREEK “GUIDO IN VELVET PANTS” SV HUAPAI MONTEPULCIANO 2016 750ML

$21.00

Tasting Notes

Colour: Montepulciano always has great colour. A saturated black core runs to a deep purple rim.
Bouquet: Typical Montepluciano, with masses of wild black fruits coupled with delightfully savoury hints and a dash of new oak.
Palate: At bottling this wine was full of youthful vitality. Soft, velvety tannins balanced by loads of juicy black fruit in the mid palate.

Cellaring
Already approachable, but we expect this wine to cellar for a number of years.

Food Matches
Rounded tannins and ripe berry flavours make this wine a great accompaniment to many meat dishes such as lamb, venison, beef and game. Many rich sauces go well with this wine, as will roast garlic and vegetables. Understandably, the wine is also superb with pasta!

Description

What’s in a name? Dubbed “Guido in Velvet Pants” the wine’s nickname refers to both Guido (Simon’s charming Italian Greyhound who resides in his winery office each day) and an obscure, but very memorable reference to an order of Carmelite Nuns, who, delighted by a new wine from their vineyard exclaimed: “It slips down the throat as easily as the Infant Jesus in velvet pants.” Indeed it does.
