Kurtatsch Kellerei Cantina is a medium sized co-operative with 190 members working 190 hectares in Alto Adige DOC in North East Italy that has been in existence for over a 100 years. The Schiava Sonntaler vines are between 60 and 90 years old with low yields but excellent quality fruit.
This is a cracking red which is both light but packed with flavour. Superb growing conditions, old vines and traditional ageing in large slavonian wooden barrels combine to give a wine with complex aromas of raspberries, wild strawberries, cherries, pomegranate and redcurrants. Elegant, fine-grained tannins are well-balanced on the long finish.

2011 Comtes de Champagne, Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs, Taittinger
Taittinger's Comtes de Champagne is a rare treat and only made in the finest vintages from 100% Chardonnay from 5 of the greatest Grand Cru vineyards in Champagne. 2011 was a particularly good vintage for Chardonnay, marked by its early ripening and drought conditions which forced the vines to delve deep in search of water for growth.
