Description

Alternatively known amongst the staff as ‘The one that I want’, this fabulous case contains six different bottles of wines which are showing nicely now but will reward further cellaring. This mixed case of hand picked red and white wines is a great gift or simply something to treat yourself with.  It contains 1 bottle each of the following:


’19 Block Series Semillon, Bouchon Wines, Maule Valley – 80 year old vines that are hand picked from two select, dry farmed plots on ancient granite soils. Zingy and fresh now but will fill out nicely over the next 3 – 8 years.


’22 Big Fine Girl Riesling, Jeanneret Wines, Clare Valley – From our favourite Clare valley winery, the ‘BFG’ Riesling has beautiful purity of fruit and is quite stunning now, although further cellaring won’t hurt it at all.


’21 Thalassitis Assyrtiko, Gaia Wines, Santorini – Unbelievable concentration yet superb acidity and drinkability.  The stunning Assyrtiko wines of Santorini are considered the pinnacle of Greek white wine making and combine power and elegance in equal measure.  Stash this away for a little longer…if you can!


’19 Chateau La Gorce, Cru Bourgeois Medoc – A very classic Cru Bourgeois from a terrific vintage.  The 2019’s seem to show very well in their youth but are also very age-worthy so you needn’t be in a hurry to tuck into this lovely claret.


’20 Valpolicella Ripasso Pojega, Rizzardi – With 10% Amarone in the blend this fabulous Ripasso has a beautiful depth and concentration of dark and red fruits coupled with a beautiful lifted freshness.  Silky and almost irresistible now, we can’t wait to see how this indulgent red develops in years to come.


’12 Rioja Reserva Hinia, Bodegas Martinez Lacuesta – Everything you would want in a classic Rioja Reserva and a little bit more!  Complex, with a beautiful balance of fruit, oak and spice kept fresh with a beautiful vein of acidity running from start to finish.  As with most Rioja’s this is approachable on release but the freshness hints at longevity and ageability that comes with a great vintage.

NV Prosecco Brut DOC, Terre dei Buth

Glera

The wonderfully fresh and elegant Prosecco Brut Spumante from Terre dei Buth has joined the fabulous Frizzante styles on our shelves.  This organic and vegan fizz is at once immensely appealing, with an enticing, softly textured palate of green apple, sherbert and gentle floral aromatics.  The finish is fresh, superbly clean and a million miles away from the nasty mass produced wines which plague the supermarket shelves.

2022/23 Barbera D’asti Cantine Povero, Piedmont

Barbera

This classic Barbera is aged in stainless steel tanks, allowing the primary aromas of the varietal to shine through, including fruity notes such as cherry, orange peel, plum, and berries, all backed up by violet and elderberry floral notes.  Soft tannins and the marked acidity make this charming little wine a very versatile wine when it comes to food matching.

Morgon Cochard Cote de Py.JPG

2020 Morgon Cote de Py, Domaine Grange Cochard

Gamay

The Morgon Cote de Py is a wonderful example of hand crafted Cru Beaujolais from the prestigious Cote de Py plateau.  Made with organically grown, hand harvested grapes from a mixture of Granite and blue stone soils, the wine is made in the traditional semi-carbonic method with 2/3rds of the bunches being de-stemmed and 1/3rd left whole.  The wine is matured in a mixture of cask and old barrels and bottled with minimal sulphur without fining.  The result is a wonderfully complex wine that is expressive yet elegant and finely balanced.  Dark fruits and kirsch like characters mingle with dried herbs, liquorice and mineral undertones along with finely poised acidity which helps the wine remain focussed.  Delicious in it's youth, the Cote de Py also shows great ageing potential in the medium term and will continue to develop in complexity.
