Winery of the Week: Migliarina Wines

Somerset West boutique vintner Carsten Migliarina’s winemaking goals are freshness, elegance and personality, in other words ‘wines that I enjoy drinking’. Each vintage the internationally experienced sommelier chooses a different variety for ‘exploration, creativity and fun’. 2016 was riesling, its name a double entendre which (being a family guide) we’ll take to mean ‘sidestep’, our cues being the sideways-moving chess piece on the front label and the fact that the wine, sidelining convention, is oaked!


Migliarina Wines Chardonnay 2015

Category: Chardonnay wooded

Elgin's vibrancy, steeliness, hallmarks of 2015, as is Migliarina's understatement, including oak - just 10% new. Bright citrus tones, creamy breadth satisfy now, even more after few years. More

Migliarina Wines Grenache 2016

Category: Grenache noir

Eye-catching ruby luminescence predicts delicacy, freshness of 2016 () from Stellenbosch & Wellington. Neither compromises expressive wild herbs, spice & softer raspberry substance. Bone-dry, nip concluding tannin adds vitality. Can take light chilling. Follows equally delicate 2015. More

2015 ex Stellenbosch has perfectly pitched fresh ripe fruit, supple core currently held by imposing grape tannin (2 months on skins). Deserves benefit of time. 14 months older oak. More
