A hit vintage after vintage, but particularly good in 2018. This is from a small area between Côtes de Bourg and Fronsac in Bordeaux and the blend is mostly merlot with 30% cabernet sauvignon providing freshness and just the right amount of backbone.
Three generations of the Jaume family farm some 200 acres of vineyard in the southern Rhône village of Vinsobres. The climate here is influenced by Alpine foothills so that cooling breezes play on the vines, preserving fresh fruit flavours in the wines. Easy-drinking, yet full-flavoured and food friendly and a Decanter World Wine Awards bronze medal winner 2021.
Another charming Aussie twist on the classic white grapes of the Rhône from Chester Osborn, his second Wine Champion of our 2021 tastings. The exotic and perfumed viognier grape gives floral and juniper aromas, lifting and lightening the more serious, stone-fruited character of marsanne. An impressive blend with just the right amount of aromatic joie-de-vivre.
This great-value, expressive California red uses a clever blend of zinfandel, syrah, carignane, mourvèdre and grenache to craft a well-balanced, soft, full-bodied, fruity red with plum, black-cherry and mocha notes.
Now certified organic, and a little drier this year, this Alsace pinot gris delivers its usual combination of gentle citrus and orchard fruits with a touch of spice and clean, ripe finish.
A great go-to white wine from northern Italy, fresh crisp and dry with pear and fresh sage aromas, and mineral weight on the palate. Lovely by the glass but it also pairs easily with a range of dishes from seafood to creamy pasta bakes. An International Wine Challenge and Decanter World Wine Awards bronze medal winner in 2021.
