A malbec from Vistaflores (Uco Valley), Tunuyan Departament, Mendoza.It reaches out all the black fruits typical of vistaflores with some sourness and boysenberries and red cherries too. Only soft almost sweet chocolate close by. Good balance and nicely attractive.................really good stuff
NV: "Crisp and nutty with a lovely, broad, yeasty style. Good and honest with a gentle, juicy attack." Judges Comments, Sommelier Wine Awards 2014NV: "Fresh and round with bready toasty notes, good balance and acidity, and a zippy finish, this offers 'great concentration for the price', said York & Albany's Nigel Lister." , Judges Comments, Sommelier Wine Awards 2013 NV: "Golden-apple, nutty and lemon notes. Toasty and ripe fruit with a touch of caramel. Clean finish." Judges comments, DWWA 2013
THis is the best Pinot Grigio, we have tasted...Its refined with pretty layers of fruit that emerge from a mid-weight frame. A cool, minerally finish gives the wine a nice sense of proportion.
The small appellation of Côteaux de Giennois lives in the shadow of its neighbour, the renowed Pouilly-Fume, its wines often slip under the radar and are hence excellent value. The classic gooseberry fruit on the nose is intense yet restrained, and leads into a palate bursting with flavours of lime and nettle, delivered with a clean and crisp feel.
Wonderful, creamy wine...Castelcerino but slightly more refined and mineral-driven on the palate. Like Filippo says, pair with all kinds of seafood.
Grenache is by far the largest variety of Domaine Colombette . Rosé is often considered one summer wine, but this is a perfect lunchtime drink whatever the weather! . It was won the most medals in competitions including the " Mondial du Rosé " but especially in the regional competition varietal wines where it was awarded silver and bronze, five gold medals and two strokes of the heart over the past ten years!
This is the first Pinot Noir that we have imported directly to the UK and we're delighted that it comes from Matthew van Heerden along with his superb Chardonnay. Like the Chardonnay, only 3 barrels were produced and we've brought just 240 bottles to the UK. Made with fruit from Elgin which is rapidly establishing itself as one of the cooler climates in South Africa this is a delicious, crunchy Pinot that has an enticing savoury edge. Multifaceted and elegant, we're in for a treat as this wine matures.
At the heart of the Provence region of France, Rimauresq is one of only a few vineyards given Cru Classe status. This Rosé is in a league of its own and can be drunk with or without food.Appearance : Light peach skin color.Nose: Complex bouquet evokes orange zest, white flowers Taste: Creamy fruit, lovely spicy notes, minerals.Blend: 50% Grenache & 50% Syrah
Spicy red and black fruits including sweet cherries and plums are evident on the nose and on the palate together with the rich, sweet raisins that you would expect from Amarone. The finish is long with both fruit and spice. The tannins are soft and the wine lovely and smooth.
The elegant Sauvignon Blanc is alive with aromas of stone-fruit and minerals with flavours of guava and lime, one sip and you're up, up and away!
Lightly oaked, supple, clean-lined Chardonnay with floral and tropical notes on the nose and tropical fruit on the palate typical of the character of this hot vintage. Best drunk within the year while it's still fresh and bright. 85/100
The Wolftrap is a spicy, aromatic, red blend that has been French oak matured.
