The Society's Exhibition DO Colchagua Andes Carmenère 2019
This Chilean carmenère is made on a coolish spot for this variety to make a more drinkable style. This is an intensely flavoured wine with a ripe yet fresh palate of black fruit and notes of clove and black pepper.
The Society's Exhibition Fleurie 2020
Our most popular cru Beaujolais by some considerable distance, this is attractive, floral Fleurie – in keeping with its name – with intensely perfumed aromas and a ripe yet fresh palate.
The Society's Exhibition Haut-Médoc 2014
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.
The Society's Exhibition Langhe Nebbiolo 2018
One of the stars of the Wine Champions tasting this year, this new Exhibition wine is made entirely from Barbaresco-certified vineyards, but from younger vines. It was its glorious bright cherry, raspberry and rose-petal perfume that first drew unanimous nods and collective enthusiasm, while its firm but fresh palate offers lively liquorice-like notes. Elegant and extremely impressive for the price.
The Society's Exhibition Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2020
Marlborough pioneer Jane Hunter and the region’s second superb vintage in a row conspired to push this wine to a resounding victory in our 2021 Wine Champions tastings. Noted for its restraint (at least two buyers remarked that they’d noted this word down when tasting it), this elegant, mineral, citrusy, crisp New Zealand sauvignon is a nod in style to the grape's French heartlands, but with an unmistakably Kiwi accent. Smart, focused, bright and beautifully balanced.
The Society's Exhibition Pouilly-Fuissé 2018
Powerful wine from southern Burgundy which is firm and muscular. It was matured in barrel for a year until smooth and round.
The Society's Exhibition Rioja Reserva 2015
A smooth, savoury and stylish Exhibition-label bottling from La Rioja Alta in Spain. The 2015 is fuller than previous vintages yet retains the graceful, silky expression of this traditional-style Rioja made from long ageing in American oak barrels. An International Wine Challenge silver and Decanter World Wine Awards bronze medal winner 2021.
The Society's Exhibition Alsace Gewurztraminer 2017
Predominantly from Hugel's grand cru Sporen vineyard, this is a bright and refreshing example of the fine 2017 vintage, dry but full-bodied with aromas of dried rose petals and a hint of spice.The Hugel estate is one of the best-known houses in the Alsace region of France, with a reputation for excellence going back to the 17th century, and they are masters of this grape.
The Society's Exhibition Chenin Blanc, Western Cape 2020
Our second vintage from the highly regarded cellar of Chris Alheit made from offcuts from his premium range of chenin blancs, still young and a little more discreet in this fine South African vintage.
The Society's Exhibition Pinotage, Stellenbosch 2018
Pinotage is typically spicy but can range from light and fresh, to the fuller-bodied, satisfying and rich style that Kanonkop makes for us, lush and fruit forward in 2018. Created in 1925 as a cross of pinot noir and cinsault, pinotage is South Africa's very own grape, planted hardly anywhere else around the world.
The Society's Exhibition Albariño, Rías Baixas 2020
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.
The Society's Exhibition Soave 2020
We are delighted that Pieropan made this exclusive and delicious Soave for us this year. A blend of 80% garganega from a vineyard just above Calvarino, in the western (warmer) part of Soave with 20% trebbiano di Soave from the Monte Tondo vineyard that neighbours La Rocca. Peach, preserved lemon and chalk flavours are well balanced in this classy Italian white..
