  • 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.

  • “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.

  • Tokaji Aszú 2008, 5 Puttonyos, Dorgó Vineyard, Disznókö, 12% vol, 50cl

    Tokaji Aszú 2008, 5 Puttonyos, Dorgó Vineyard, Disznókö, 12% vol, 50cl

    HU02

    The Tokaj Dorgó Vineyard is a selection specifically made by Disznókö Estate’s team led by winemaker László Mészáros.

     

    The Dorgó vineyard is located in a beautiful setting at the southern approaches of the Tokaj wine region. Mostly planted with Furmint grapes on volcanic clay soil between 150 and 200 metres above sea level.

     

    Aszú grapes: 70 % Furmint, 20 % Zéta, 10 % Hárslevelű.

     

    2008 was a particularly good year with the autumn bringing misty mornings followed by sunshine – perfect conditions for the development of aszú grapes (botrysied), with rich, powerful flavours. Each aszú grape was individually picked over several passes through the vineyard and stored in stainless steel until vinification.

     

    Base wine and must: 75 % Furmint, 20 % Hárslevelű, 5 % Zéta .

     

    Two thirds of the aszú berries were gently pressed and then macerated in the finished base wine of the same year. The finest of the aszú grapes were macerated (unpressed) in fermenting must for 48-60 hours after which time they were pressed and the wine allowed to complete its fermentation in stainless steel..

    After blending the wine was aged in a mixture of new and used oak barrels (225 litres) for two and a half years. The wine was bottled in the spring of 2012.

     

    Rich golden colour, the bouquet has citrus notes with pineapple, apricot and marmalade. The palate is rounded with a creamy structure balanced by fresh acidity. The finish is very long.

     

    Tasted at the Disznóko vertical in London, the 2008 Tokaji Aszu 5 Puttonyos is a blend of 70% Furmint, 20% Zéta and 10% Hárslevelu, the maceration mostly with finished wine. This has an exceptional bouquet: Satsuma and mandarin, quince and marmalade, wonderful mineralite and tension. The palate is very well balanced with mandarin, lime, orange rind and a touch of quince. This is edgy, a more unpredictable yet compelling Tokaji from Disznoko with a very long and sustained finish. This comes highly recommended—an outstanding 5 Puttonyos.”
