  • Botrytis Semillon 2014 “Vat 5”, Deen de Bortoli, South East Australia, 11% vol, 37.5cl

    Botrytis Semillon 2014 “Vat 5”, Deen de Bortoli, South East Australia, 11% 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.

  • Muscat de Beaumes de Venise 2017, Domaine des Bernardins, 15% vol, 37.5cl

    Muscat de Beaumes de Venise 2017, 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.

  • Pedro Ximenéz, Gutiérrez Colosía, El Puerto de Santa María, 17% vol, 37.5cl

    Pedro Ximenéz, Gutiérrez Colosía, El Puerto de Santa María, 17% vol, 37.5cl

    SH02

    The Gutiérrez Colosía Bodegas are located in Puerto de Santa María and date back to 1838.

     

    The architecture of the warehouses is known as Nave Cathedral (cathedral-like). These arched buildings, of significant height, help expose the wines to the influence of the local climate.

     

    A rich and concentrated PX. Ageing in the relatively cooler climate of El Puerto de Santa María brings a touch of balancing finesse to this rich wine.

  • “Sweet Agnes” Riesling 2016, Seifried Estate, Nelson, 10.5% vol, 37.5cl

    “Sweet Agnes” Riesling 2016, Seifried Estate, Nelson, 10.5% vol, 37.5cl

    NZW13

    Pioneers of Nelson winemaking, Hermann and Agnes Seifried planted their first vineyards in 1973. Today Seifried Estate is one of New Zealand’s leading family owned wineries.

     

    Named after Agnes Seifried, “Sweet Agnes” is 100% Riesling. The grapes were hand selected at the peak of ripeness with a large portion of the fruit shrivelled and raisined, caused by natural dehydration. The grapes were then gently pressed to release a very concentrated intensely flavoured juice. The grapes were picked, pressed and fermented in batches as grapes were selected during successive passes through the vineyard.

     

    Sweet Agnes Riesling has bright pure concentrated fruit characters with citrus peel and floral elements. Palate entry is full and luscious with gorgeous zesty acidity as well as hints of honey defining the palate and balancing beautifully with the concentration and natural sweetness.

  • Monastrell Dulce 2015, Bodegas Castaño, Yecla, 16% vol, 50cl

    Monastrell Dulce 2015, Bodegas Castaño, Yecla, 16% vol, 50cl

    SPW08

    Based in Yecla, in the hills inland of Alicante in south-eastern Spain, Bodegas Castaño is known for its huge efforts to promote one of Spain’s native varieties, Monastrell (Mourvèdre). The Castaño family owns over 410 hectares of vineyards 80% of which are planted with Monastrell.

     

    The grapes for this wine are grown in vineyards at an altitude of 750m above sea level, from vines with an average age of just under 40 years.

     

    After crushing, a long, cool maceration took place at 17°C to extract colour, aromas and the soft, sweet Monastrell tannins. Fermentation was stopped once the must reached 5-7% alcohol by volume by adding grape spirit. This ensured that residual sugar was left in the wine giving the lingering, sweet finish as well as the higher alcohol of a fortified wine. After fermentation, the wine was aged in French and American oak barrels for eight months before bottling.

     

    Intense ruby colour, with notes of raisin, honey and dried fig along with plum jam aromas. The wine is deliciously fresh and sweet, with a rounded mouthfeel and extraordinary mouthwatering acidity that balances the sweetness of the persistent finish.

  • Château de Ricaud 2015, Loupiac, 12.5% vol, 75cl

    Château de Ricaud 2015, Loupiac, 12.5% vol, 75cl

    BB02

    To the south of Bordeaux city, near Cadillac, Château Ricaud boasts an exceptionally diverse array of soils. Impressed by its quality potential and the architectural splendour of the château, Alain Thiénot (of Champagne fame) bought the property in 1980 and has subsequently put in place a remodelling plan to transform the estate into a benchmark Loupiac and to create a Côtes de Bordeaux worthy of the finest wines.

     

    Loupiac lies across the River Garonne from Sauternes.

     

    Set in a natural amphitheatre and surrounded by three streams, no other spot in the appellation is more affected by the alternating misty and very dry conditions essential to produce the fungus Botrytis Cinerea or “noble rot”.


    Given its location, Château de Ricaud is one of the rare estates where this magic is guaranteed to take place and every year, allowing without fail, the incredible transformation to take place, creating wonderfully aromatic golden nectar.

     

    100% Semillon, vinified and then aged in oak (20% of which is new) for 12 months.

     

    Attractive golden appearance. Lovely freshness on the intense bouquet, full of peach and citrus fruit aromas. The aromas are mirrored on the palate, where they combine with lovely mature noble rot character offering typical apricot and orange rind notes. With beautifully balanced acidity and rich sweetness, the wine has a lingering, aromatic and fresh finish.
