From Friuli in the far north east of Italy - a region which borders with Austria and Slovenia. This take on Sauvignon Blanc is a full bodied affair with rich citrus notes and a lovely green vegetal edge that puts this somewhere between Sancerre and Marlborough - and that's not a bad place to be... Full flavoured and fresh with a crisp, full finish.
Susumaniello is a grape variety found pretty much exclusively in the southern Italian region of Puglia. This variety, grown on the coastal hills just off the Mediterranean Sea, can pack a punch not unlike the more famed Primitivo variety, yet this is a variety usually found in blends and not given free reign to show its potential as a single varietal wine. Rich berry fruit, cherry and blackcurrant on the nose. A palate that's rich and full with those layers of berry fruit combining with herbs and softer, more savoury notes. A rich and smooth red that offers a glimpse of what Puglian wine is all about.
Grauer Burgunder Heinrich Gies
It seems that this winery only deals in elegance when it comes to wine. Hailing from the wine producing region of Pzals, Western Germany, Heinrich Gies' Grauer Burgunder appears light in the glass with a nose that displays white blossom and soft citrus notes. The palate mirrors the nose, with an arresting purity with the floral notes hinting at off-dry but finishing dry with a little lift of acidity
Herringbone Hills Sauvignon Blanc
Full, aromatic and delivers with every mouthful. No messing around, this is typical kiwi Sauvignon. A zippy, spicy drop with plenty of gooseberry fruit and a lip smacking finish.
Nua Brut Bianco
Nua Brut is an elegant Italian sparkler housed in one of the prettiest bottles you'll find among these pages. A blend of Pinot Noir and Trebbiano, this is a fresh clean fizz that possesses all the fresh citrus notes you'd hope to expect within a well balanced and refreshing palate. This is a celebration fizz that won't disappoint...
Quinta De Arcosso Reserva 2008
New! Absolute monster from Portugal - A four grape blend of Touriga Nacional (35%), Touriga Franca (25%), Tinta Amarela (15%) and E Tinta Roriz (15%). The wine has benefited from a generous 14 months in American and French oak and it certainly shows. An intoxicating nose of crushed black fruits, spice and leather. A rich, mouth-filling palate of black and red fruits that holds no prisoners with a finish that lasts and lasts... The initial parcel of this is very small - so don't delay.
Real Rubio M. Luz
A fascinating blend of Viura, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Verdejo and Malvasia (!!!), this Rioja Blanco possesses a lovely light, golden colour. On the nose there's a real restrained elegance - intense but integrated citrus, blossom and a hint of more exotic fruits. The palate at first is fresh and direct, but really opening up with all those flavours coming through. Finishing with a clean, lasting acidity. Great winemaking.
Tempranillo grapes from gnarly, water-stressed old bush vines are used to create this rich, interesting red. It's a moreish drop with dense dark cherry and black fruit flavours, a firm palate with a lasting finish. The wine has benefited from 2 months in French and American oak - and although compared to some Spanish reds that's not a great deal of time, the short, accelerated ageing over those 2 months has had a profound and positive effect on the wine.
