A 2021 Wine Champion grüner veltliner, but from New Zealand! This Austrian variety has evidently settled well on the South Island, making a fuller and sweeter example with bright peachy fruit. Fans of the country’s sauvignons should definitely try this (as it happens, Anna’s Way’s sauvignon also won this year!).
With fruit from both McLaren Vale and Langhorne Creek, this is a fascinating Australian wine. The nose is constantly evolving, with blueberry, plum and cinnamon notes, which intensifies on the palate. The finish is impressive and the fruit is joined by a hint of spice. Decant for 30 minutes or so.
Rich and full-flavoured dry furmint from Tokaji, the homeland of this wonderful grape. Apricots, candied apples and ginger on the nose with a rich, textured palate alongside trademark furmint acidity. Great value.
A wine that punches so convincingly above its weight that several of our Wine Champions tasters suspected a misprint when its price was revealed! Pineapple, peach and apricot abound on the nose, while the palate delivers gentle texture and zesty freshness at once. A fine example of the greco grape from the sunny southern slopes of Italy.
'Kompsos' means 'elegant' in Greek, which is paricularly fitting for this liatiko, Crete's finest red grape. Pale in colour but full of personality with aromas of cherry, redcurrant, herbs and oriental spices, and a full, rich palate with ripe yet persistent tannin. Think pinot on steroids! Best served lightly chilled.
