These wines have been selected with the thought in mind of what we would like to drink this Christmas, beautiful stunning wines!

  • Tobelos Barrel Fermented White, Rioja — x 1

    This excellent barrel fermented white Rioja has a yellow, green colour. The nose is intense with lots of clean ripe citrus fruit and pleasant toasty oak and smoked notes. The palate is dry and light with balanced fruit and wood assemblage which leaves a lingering refreshing taste of toasty ripe fruit notes and citrus hints.

  • Rustenberg Flagship Chardonnay — x 1

    Apricot, coconut and orange peel aromas followed by flavours of marzipan, sponge cake and citrus rounded off with carefully-judged oak and balanced, fresh acidity.

    The grapes were hand picked in January and February. Once back at the winery, they were whole bunch pressed before fermentation in 300L oak barrels using wild yeasts. The wine was aged on its lees for 10 months in 25% new French oak barrels, with the remainder 2nd, 3rd and 4th fill.

     

  • Greenhough River Garden Sauvignon Blanc — x 1

    Wander through a block of Sauvignon Blanc vines in the days before harvest and taste the berries from either side of the row, within the shaded areas of the canopy and from the most exposed, golden clusters. The spectrum of fruit flavours and aromas which define the bright, outgoing character of this variety are all there, loud and clear. Absolutely my favourite grape to eat from the vine says the winemaker Andrew Greenhough!

    Greenhough, Nelson Sauvignon Blanc is a classic ‘top of the south’ style with focus on ‘crunchy’ fresh fruit and fragrance. The Hope Vineyard Sauvignon is an alternative style which explores the complexity and textural richness that comes from skin contact and wild fermentation in barrel

    Waimea means River Garden in Maori.

    A classic ‘top of the south’ style, bright-fruited and “crunchy” in spirit. Vibrantly and fresh, this sauvignon blanc offers tangy citrus, fleshy stone-fruit and tropical flavours over subtle herbs and mineral notes.  The excellent 2019 vintage has provided lovely depth of flavour.

     

  • Lonardi Valpolicella Classico Superiore DOC Ripasso — x 1

    This dry, velvety wine has a soft and full fruity bouquet with a cherry sensation on the nose and palate.

  • Bodegas Piqueras Oak Aged Old Vine Garnacha, DO Almansa — x 1

    From southeast spain, the ‘Piqueras’ label is fast becoming well known for reliable high quality and great value. The older Garnacha vines here (45-60 years) provide oodles of velvety black cherry, damson and spice flavours, with hints of vanilla oak.

    Bodegas Piqueras is a fourth generation estate, founded in 1915 in the southeastern Spanish region of Almansa. With its semi-desert climate, it’s a ideal area to practice organic winemaking, with plenty of sunlight and little chance of disease. The cool nights contrast the hot days, giving vital acidity and aromatics to the rich, deeply-coloured wines. The traditional grapes of the region are Garnacha Tintorera, a rare red-fleshed grape variety, and Monastrell, also known as Mourvèdre. These are grown in the Los Timonares vineyard, which sits at 2500 feet above sea level. The Los Chuchillos vineyard has the estate’s oldest vines, with the gnarly bush vines being over 60 years old. Bodegas Piqueras recently added the El Vinculo vineyard, which is based amongst the olives, almonds and cereals of the Almansa reservoir region. All viticulture is done with nature, not against it, and biodiversity is actively encouraged. Sheep graze to keep surrounding plants in check, and their manure is used as fertiliser.

     

  • Gouguenheim Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva — x 1

    Dark red colour.  Black cherry, spice, dried figs and anise flavours.  Round and supple with soft tannins and a long finish.
