2009 Alliànce $69.00

(Our Signature Bordeaux Style Blend)


A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc, this is Blackwood Lane’s Signature wine. Full-bodied, complex and very juicy, with a cornucopia of flavours and aromas that make it a delightful sipping or food pairing wine. Aromas of spiced cherries, raspberry, cassis, violets, sweet oak, wet stone and cocoa. Bright, rich flavours of cherry, raspberry, graphite and cassis, with a strong mid-palate and an extra-long finish of cherries with a hint of cocoa.


2008 The Referènce $150.00

(Premium Bordeaux Blend)


This is a riper, fuller and darker wine than the previous vintage, beginning with aromas of cassis and vanilla, that lead to flavours of cassis, black cherry, dark chocolate, vanilla and coffee. The texture is still firm, but not hard, and the wine certainly is age worthy. There is a very long finish with notes of cedar and spice. “John Schreiner”


2013 Portànce 44.00
(Merlot Port Style Wine)


Portànce is a name we came up with for our new Port style wine, in line with our trade names “Alliànce” and “Referènce”. This is a Vintage Port style wine, fortified with brandy that was distilled from Blackwood Lane wine. Our fortified 2013 Merlot was aged in a fine French oak barrel for two and a half years. It has a soft and sensuous mouthfeel that delivers a rich impact of mixed berry flavours from the mid-palate to the finish. Sophisticated flavours of sweet cherries and raspberries, candied apples, chocolate, vanilla and strawberry jam. You can cellar Portànce for years or enjoy it now with a savoury blue cheese, aged cheddar, cheesecake or dark chocolate.
