Exhibition Mixed 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.
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 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.
A gorgeous evocation of very ripe syrah from the northern Rhône in a vintage marked by a long, hot summer. All blueberry and blackberry flavours with a sprinkling of spice.
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.
