  • Negroamaro 2017, “A Mano”, Puglia, 14% vol, 75cl

    Negroamaro 2017, “A Mano”, Puglia, 14% vol, 75cl

    IR46

    Mark Shannon and Elvezia Sbalchiero, the duo behind A Mano, have worked in the wine business for most of their lives.

     

    Elvezia is a northern Italian wine marketing expert and Mark is a Californian winemaker. They fell in love with Puglia and, when they decided to start their own label, made it their home. They pay high prices for the best grapes from 70-100 year old vines and focus solely on quality and a modern style. After over a decade of vintages, they are now getting access to some of Salento’s best grapes.

     

    The Negroamaro grapes for this wine are grown in an 11 hectare vineyard, in the heart of Salice Salentino. An old vineyard, it is dry farmed and trained on trellises to prevent the sensitive grapes suffering from sunburn.

     

    On arrival at the cellars, the grapes were pressed, destemmed and cooled to 18°C and the must was allowed to ferment at its own pace. After racking in mid-November, the wine remained in an underground cement tank where the temperature did not exceed 10°C until bottling under stelvin closure.

    Deep ruby in the glass. Aromas begin with crushed berries, black cherries and spices followed by a light floral note. The exuberant palate is full and rich with lingering spice on the 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.

    Bodegas Navajas Crianza 2015, Navarrete, La Rioja Alta, 13.5% vol, 75cl

    RJ06

    A family winery that was founded in 1918 as Bodegas Arjona, but in 1983 the Navajas family became the sole shareholders and changed its name to Bodegas Navajas.

     

    Navajas believes that the quality of the wine begins in the vineyards and for this reason they monitor and control the vineyards which belong to their growers in the Rioja Alta and Rioja Baja.

     

    The Tinto Crianza is 95% Tempranillo & 5% Mazuelo from the bodega’s vineyards in La Rioja Alta.

    Bright, deep red in appearance, the nose is full of ripe, juicy fruit from the Tempranillo with hints of vanilla and smoke from the oak. Rich and rounded in the mouth with fruit and spice, the wine is well balanced with soft tannins and a long finish.

  • Muscadet Sèvre et Maine Sur Lie 2017, Ch. du Coing de St. Fiacre, 12% vol, 75cl

    Muscadet Sèvre et Maine Sur Lie 2017, Ch. du Coing de St. Fiacre, 12% vol, 75cl

    LV03

    Château du Coing is located in the village of Saint Fiacre, in the Sèvre et Maine district of Muscadet.

     

    Sèvre et Maine is acknowledged to be the best district in which to grow Muscadet, or Melon de Bourgogne as the variety is also known. These two rivers moderate the cool temperatures which is important at this northerly latitude and the distinctive gneiss soils give a particularly racy, fragrant style of Muscadet. The vines are on average 65 years old.

     

    Only stainless steel was used to ferment and age this wine. However, it qualifies as Muscadet `Sur Lie` due to the six months` ageing on its fine lees after the fermentation. This adds body, richness and longevity to the pure, citrus fruit; a serious wine with firm structure and good depth results.

     

    This wine is appreciated for its young, vivid, dry and fruity side that makes it the perfect companion to seafood. A delicate, pale lemon colour with light floral aromas of jasmine, pear and lightly toasted bread. The palate is juicy with pure, citrus fruit character and a long, fine-textured finish.
