    Botrytis Semillon 2013 “Vat 5”, Deen de Bortoli, South East Australia, 10.5% vol, 37.5cl

    AUS100

    The late Deen De Bortoli created his Vat Series with the idea of developing a range of delicious, full-flavoured wines at an affordable price. Deen personally selected the blends and chalked the numbers on the vats to identify them.

     

    Light golden in appearance, the nose has citrus, peach, pear, nectarine and honey and just a touch of oak.

     

    The palate is rich, sweet and rounded with peach, citrus and a slight touch of refreshing acidity to give this wine a beautifully balanced and lingering finish.

  • Moscato d’Asti 2016, Marco e Vittorio Adriano, Alba, 5% vol, 75cl

    Moscato d’Asti 2016, Marco e Vittorio Adriano, Alba, 5% vol, 75cl

    IW14

    Marco & Vittorio Adriano’s beautiful estate is centred on the village of San Rocco Seno d’Elvio, a few kilometres south east of Alba and two or so west of Treiso, as the crow flies. They have 23 hectares of perfectly tended vines, and make excellent wines marked by real elegance, great purity of fruit and suppleness. They are wines that are carefully produced to give real pleasure. They also offer extraordinary value for money.

     

    Their Moscato d’Asti is from 20 year old vines grown at 250 metres above sea level. After careful selection in both the vineyard and the winery, the grapes are gently pressed and the must fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel. When the wine reaches an alcohol level of 5% the fermentation is halted and the wine is transferred to temperature controlled stainless steel tanks where it rest for a few weeks before bottling.

     

    Pale straw with hints of green the wine is very lightly sparkling with a nose full of white fruit aromas (apricot and peach) with notes of sage and citrus. Light and elegant on the palate the gentle sweetness and low alcohol make this the ideal wine to accompany light fruit puddings.

  • Muscat de Beaumes de Venise 2014, Domaine des Bernardins, 15% vol, 37.5cl

    Muscat de Beaumes de Venise 2014, Domaine des Bernardins, 15% vol, 37.5cl

    WR02

    The wines from the Muscat de Beaumes-de-Venise appellation are created by adding a neutral grape spirit to the partially fermented grape juice of the Muscat grape to produce what the French call a vin doux naturel (naturally sweet wine). The addition of the spirit kills off the yeasts and leaves the wine high in alcohol (15%) as well as high in residual sugar.

     

    The house and cellars of Mme Castaud-Maurin’s lovely property are in the village of Beaumes de Venise itself, while the 17 hectares of Muscat à petits grains, 25% of which are in fact ‘noirs’, are on the lower slopes of Mont Ventoux – a quite beautiful situation.

     

    The wine has a fine delicate character of almonds and apricots, and the use of black Muscat gives it a lovely orange tint in the glass.

Alcohol, mistella (fresh grape must with added alcohol) and mosto cotto (concentrated fresh grape must which is traditionally “cooked” until it reduces to a third of its initial volume) are then added to the base wine, giving it a final alcohol content of 18%, the desired sugar level and the traditional flavour. The wine is then aged for over five years (minimum two years by law) in 150 hectolitre Slovenian oak casks.

     

    Dark amber in colour, with aromas of dried figs, sultanas and caramel.  This wine is round and soft on the palate with fresh notes of dried fruit, nuts and honeysuckle with a pleasant, sweet and clean finish.

  • Château le Fagé 2014, “Cuvée Grande Réserve”, Monbazillac, 12.5% vol, 50cl

    Château le Fagé 2014, “Cuvée Grande Réserve”, Monbazillac, 12.5% vol, 50cl

    BB12

    Located on Monbazillac’s celebrated North Slope, Château Le Fagé looks out over Bergerac and the Dordogne, 5km away.


    The vineyard, situated on an exceptional terroir, has been in the Gérardin family for 8 generations and today produces a range of fine Bergerac wines.
    Château Le Fagé Monbazillac is 80% Semillon, 10% Sauvignon, and 10% Muscadelle.

     

    The grapes are hand picked with careful selection in the vineyard to take only those bunches affected by botrytis (noble rot). This process requires several passes through the vineyard over many days. The fruit is pressed, racked and fermented slowly in oak casks.

     

    The wine has a fine golden colour, deep and bright. The nose is ripe and luscious with notes of honey and crystallised fruit. The palate is rich and round with lovely sweetness balanced by fine acidity and the unmistakable tang of the botrytised grapes, which gives the wine exceptional length and elegance.
