The Society's Exhibition Case
Textbook Central Otago pinot from one of New Zealand's most respected winemakers, Paul Pujol. Wonderfully balanced wine with red berry, plum and blackcurrant with an alluring earth and spice character.
This approachable yet cellar-worthy Bordeaux is a blend of almost equal parts cabernet sauvignon and merlot, with just under 10% petit verdot adding a hint of spice on the palate. From Château Beaumont, this is unmistakably Médoc but with easy, ripe tannins ensuring plenty of drinking pleasure.
For the third successive year, our flagship bottling of Chile’s pre-eminent chardonnay region showed its class at our annual Wine Champions blind tasting. Taut and sensitively oaked, with energetic citrus fruit and just a hint of oak. If you can, decant this 20 minutes before serving – it gets even better.
The cool and narrow Saint-Aubin valley has benefitted from global warming. It used to struggle to ripeness. Now it is ripe yet fresh. Matured in oak for about a year, this lovely white Burgundy is made from Le Ban vineyard fruit.
An elegant, delicate albariño from Spain's best region for the grape, Rías Baixas. This dry, unoaked wine has whistle-clean appley fruit and is an excellent expression of modern Spanish white.
