  • Sauvignon Blanc 2018, Kim Crawford, Marlborough, 12% vol, 75cl

    Sauvignon Blanc 2018, Kim Crawford, Marlborough, 12% vol, 75cl

    NZW3

    The grapes were selected from vineyards in Marlborough’s Wairau Valley and the neighbouring Awatere Valley. The vines ranged in age from 18 months to 15 years bringing a mix of youthful vigour and depth of flavour.

     

    The grapes were machine harvested in the cool of the evening and overnight to preserve flavour and pressed immediately with minimal skin contact.  Fermentations were carried out at low temperatures and when all tanks had completed fermentation they were proportionately blended, fined, stabilised and bottled.

    Lovely pale yellow. Tropical melon and pineapple aromas, passion fruit and lifted citrus aromas. A mouth-filling wine packed with fruit sweetness balanced by mouth-watering acidity and a fresh, zesty, lingering finish.

  • “La Bohème” Act Four, Yarra Valley Syrah + Gamay 2017, De Bortoli, 14% vol, 75cl

    “La Bohème” Act Four, Yarra Valley Syrah + Gamay 2017, De Bortoli, 14% vol, 75cl

    AUS26

    The Yarra Valley’s very own opera diva, Dame Nellie Melba, enchanted the world as Mimi in “La Bohème”. This range of wines pays tribute to one of her most well-known operas, based in the characterful Latin Quarter of 1880’s Paris.

     

    Act 4 combines the spicy quality of Syrah (Shiraz) with the juicy fruit of the Beaujolais grape, Gamay.

     

    A mixture of whole bunches and whole berries with some early foot stomping to create some juice to start the ‘wild’ ferment. Some additional working of the skins toward the end of fermentation. The grapes were then pressed and the wine racked in to 500 litre casks for 10 months ageing.

     

    Deep red with a purple edge, the nose is gently aromatic with aromas of red fruits & dried herbs together with some earthy, mineral complexity. The palate is supple and textural with juicy, cherry like fruits and forest notes, lots of spice and good zesty acidity.

     

    An unusual blend, but a successful one!

  • Valpolicella 2018, Allegrini, Fumane, Verona, 13% vol, 75cl

    Valpolicella 2018, Allegrini, Fumane, Verona, 13% vol, 75cl

    IR09

    All of Allegrini’s impeccable wines are produced from estate-grown fruit from their 90 hectares of vineyard in the communes of Sant’ Ambrogio and Fumane. Across the range and from vintage to vintage, they have superb fruit, balance, intensity, length, elegance, tipicity and, above all, drinkability.


    Each wine has winemaker Franco Allegrini’s distinct stamp of quality, but every one has its own distinctive character. They are among the elite of the world’s best producers of red wines.


    The south-east facing vineyards are located in the hills of the Valpolicella Classico region at 150-250 metres above sea level. The soil there is very varied but mostly chalky, of volcanic origin. The vines are 32 years old on average.


    65% Corvina/Corvinone, 30% Rondinella & 5% Molinara.


    The grapes were de-stalked before crushing, after which fermentation occurred at 25-31ºC in temperature-controlled stainless steel. Maceration lasted nine days and malolactic fermentation took place in December. The wine was held in stainless steel tanks until bottling in mid-February where it spent a further two months before release.

     

    Ruby red in colour, with purplish-blue highlights. Fragrant fruit with prominent notes of dark cherries are echoed by fresher hints of pepper and aromatic herbs, typical of Corvina and its genetic cousin Corvinone, the historic varietals of this appellation. Whilst young, the Valpolicella is impressively lively and fresh and with age it takes on a fuller, rounder character.
