A small parcel of this top NZ Sauv Blanc has come our way at a keen price. South of the world famous Marlborough wine region, heading through Canterbury, you'll enter the Waipara Valley. A cool climate region producing some really vivid wines that are unmistakably kiwi. Bold citrus fruit, streaks of minerality and bright herbaceous flavours are to be found in this pungent, elegant wine.
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.
Gamay Syrah Collin Bourisset
A new one for us, from a producer who creates some great Burgundy and top Cru Beaujolais. This curious blending of Gamay and Syrah is really interesting - the light bubblegummed fruit of the former pairing with the richer, black fruit and spice of the latter. The wine is very smooth with a nice layering of flavour. Rich, juicy and smooth.
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
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...
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.
