Description

1 x Champagne Pol Roger Rich Demi-Sec - France
This sweeter style was reintroduced to satisfy the demand from markets where a semi-dry champagne was required to pair with desserts or wedding cake or for those with a sweeter palate. In all other regards it is a replica of the Brut Reserve.

1 x Givry 1er Cru Grande Berge Mouton - France
Some of the vines for this cuvee are more than sixty years old giving great depth and concentration to the wine. At the aromatic level, the bouquet will be complex and rich: floral notes such as violet, but also red and black fruits (strawberry, blackberry) and even spices.This is drinking very well now.

1 x Amarone Villa Borghetti Pasqua - Italy
From the Villa Borghetti vineyards we also obtain traditional Valpolicella, in which we maintain the typical grape mix including Molinara, which confers freshness to the wine, and more intense and tannie Corvina grape. The wine is pumped over the skins several times during vinification in order to favour the extraction of their colouring substances and tannis, before maturing in wood for 5-6 months. The wine is fresh, with scents that recall red fruits such as redcurrants and raspberries. On the palate, it is well structured, rounded and harmonious, with evident red fruit notes. A vigorous, full-bodied deep ruby red wine. Clean and vibrant fragrances of currants, blackberries and sweet almonds on the nose, with notes of vanilla. Big texture, warm and rich, with soft and silky tannins and a long finish.

1 x Rioja Gran Reserva Especial Urbina - Spain
This wine comes from the best grapes from the Estate, all from vines over 20 years. Fermentation at 28 º C and macerated the last 28 days, followed by 24 months in oak and 48 months in bottle. Garnet-red, splendid maturity, complexity on the nose, the palate is seen in the harmonious and balanced oak and fruit tannins, elegant and velvety soft, and wonderful length.

1 x Super Nanny Pinot Noir Central Otago - New Zealand
The Super Nanny Pinot Noir has a complex and seductive nose, showing ever changing layers of plums, bramble, sweet baking spice, dark chocolate, coffee, liqourice and an ethereal floral lift. The palate is rich upon entry, flowing on to a beautifully poised platform of dark berry fruits, dried herbs, forest floor and spice before a blanket of fine velvety tannins usher you towards a bright and persistent finish.

1 x Leeu Passant Cabernet Sauvignon - South Africa
This aromatic Cabernet shows notes of cassis, tarragon, graphite and cedar on the nose. These continue on the palate which has a silky texture and great structure from the fine tannins. The richness and power of the wine are balanced by freshness and finesse. The finish is dry with lingering blackcurrant and blueberry flavours.

1 x San Lorenzo The Pearl Alexander Valley - U.S.A.
The San Lorenzo vineyard was purchased by Pete Seghesio’s grandfather in 1896, with ten gold coins he had earned working as a cook for the gold mines. Old deeds suggest that the vineyard was planted before 1892. This ‘Pearl’ of a vineyard is adjacent to Pete’s home, which has a small cellar underneath. The blend for 'The Pearl' is a result of the century old field blend of 69% Zinfandel, 15% Petite Sirah, 5% Carignan and 10% mixed reds that include Grand Noir, Alicante, Negrette and Mataro.

1 x Chassagne-Montrachet Pierre Bouree - France
Fine, bright, golden colour, rich and complex aromas (hazelnuts, honey), intense and persistent on the palate. Hand picked grapes and no destemming; immediate pneumatic pressing and fermentation in oak barrels with batonnage every day; bottled after 15 months.

1 x Sancerre Blanc Cuvee Silex Michel Thomas - France
If you find most sauvignon blanc too fruity for your taste give this a go. Flinty soils (silex) make brilliant under-stated Sancerre. The citrus fruit is held in check with the minerality of the soil making a complex dry white that is the perfect accompaniment to oysters and mussels. Drinking well now but capable of aging 3 to 4 years too.

1 x Soave Campo di Tovi Stefano Inama - Italy
Light yellow colour. Elegant nose of sweet field flowers: camomile, elder flower, iris. Mineral on the palate with sweet almond on the finish.

1 x Yangarra Estate Blanc - Australia
Gently aromatic notes of almond skins and warm sandy soils. Fresh apricot flesh on the palate with subtle apple blossom and white flowers.

1 x Clos du Val Carneros Chardonnay - U.S.A.
Brilliantly executed cool Californian Chardonnay - think baked apples and icecream! Slightly toasted, salty caramel aromas with crunchy appley characters. Mouth-watering with poise. Fresh pear and apple fruit flavours balanced with hints of nutty oak. This is an elegant Chardonnay, linear with well-balanced oak and a crisp, long finish.
