The first vintage of Joseph Swan Pinot Noir was 1973 and was produced with consultation from the legendary Andre Tchelistcheff who was a friend of Joe Swan's. At its core is cherry and red apple with hints of spice and a touch of bramble. In the mouth, it bursts with juicy fruit, balanced by 25% new oak. Long, rich and balanced finish. Like all the Cuvee de Trois blends, the emphasis is on a wine that drinks well upon release but is also capable of rewarding some cellaring.
Missing your Malt well miss no more!
Bouquet: Fresh roasted coffee, burnt caramel & vanilla with hints of dark chocolate, fig & blueberries.Palate: High notes of espresso, spice, caramel & toasted nuts enhanced by classic vanilla finish.
Many years in the making, Lyre’s exquisite range of lovingly crafted alcohol-free, classic spirits was borne from a quest to make the impossible possible. To provide an alternative to those who don’t wish to imbibe alcohol, but still wish to enjoy the mirth, merriment and social intercourse of an evening soiree or shindig.
But this is not just any alternative.
Every Lyre’s spirit looks, tastes and sashays around the palate just like the original. And yet, the absence of giggle juice enables revellers to remain clear-headed, of good cheer and in fine fettle to pursue whatever tickles their fancy the following day.
Lyre’s – the finest range of non-alcoholic classic spirits the world has ever seen.
100% Nebbiolo grown in calcareous clay/sandy soils at 360 to 400 meters above sea level located within the Bric Micca cru. “Baluchin” translates to “star” in Piedmontese, as one can see the stars from this vineyard that sits at the highest position within the cru, all planted to dramatic 45°-55° slopes. Fermentation lasts 7-8 days under temperature control. Malolactic occurs in oak. Aged in medium-toasted, small French oak barrels (10% new) for 20-22 months. 400 cases produced.
All the way from Australia, Lyre's brings you a non-alcoholic Dark Cane Spirit, made in the style of an aged rum! Look, there's even a parrot with a pirate hat and a hook for a hand on the label. Wait, parrots don't have hands. A hook for a wing? Anyway. It's full of rich molasses flavors, but most definitely completely free from alcohol. It is has rich notes of caramelized brown sugar and slightly bitter molasses, with flamed orange peel.
