With a pure gamay bouquet and plush, dense fruit texture, this is a harmoniously balanced Beaujolais cru with impressive purity. It is already delicious, but with the structure to keep.
A delightful New Zealand sauvignon made one of the oldest family-owned wineries in Marlborough. An enticing lemon-and-lime nose leads to a full, fresh and delicious palate, where citrus notes are joined by tropical flavours.
Seldom has a Wine Champion been more aptly named: ‘Pure Loire’ is a pale, crisp, bright and breezy bottle of rosé from the Bougrier family’s talented Touraine team, and sure enough it’s as textbook an example of the style as one could hope for, not to mention utterly charming.
A fresh and generous Hungarian white blend from the region of Eger. This is fragrant with aromas of lemon-pith and nectarine with a full yet refreshing and mineral palate. Those who enjoyed The Society's Hungarian White should love this levelled up version of Egri Csillag.
From an estate steeped in history comes this delicious, soft, fruity wine from the heart of the sun-baked Roussillon in the south of France. This exciting new find replaces our much-loved Society's French Full Red. The blend is a little different with (as the name implies) grenache forming the majority, with small percentages of marselan and syrah in support. The style is still full-bodied but with better-focused fruit and lovely round tannins. It all adds up to a perfect anyday red that could be served cellar cool and a real crowd-pleaser.
This fragrant rosé, made mostly from cabernet franc with a touch of grolleau for roundness and charm, has a soft, fruity flavour and persistent fizz. Delightfully clean and refreshing, this is a lovely aperitif but is gorgeous, too, with shellfish.
