    MERLOT CAB SAV (Super Tuscan) “San Fiorenzo Bolgheri” (Italy)

    Production The Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot vines are cultivated in sandy-silt soils typical of the Bolgheri region. The grapes are carefully selected and undergo 18 days fermentation and maceration in stainless steel followed by 12 months maturation in French oak, and a further 3 months in bottle. Tasting notes Aromas of ripe black fruits and plum compote with lifted minty notes. The palate is rich and structured with layers of bramble and black cherry fruit balanced by savoury, cedar and capsicum notes, firm tannins and a twist of sour cherry acidity on the finish. Food match Drink with ravioli and meat ragu, braised duck breast or grilled lamb chops.

    SAUVIGNON CHENIN SEMILLON “Circle of Life” (South Africa)

    Production Circle of Life White is neither defined by grape varietals, nor indeed a specific block within the vineyard, but instead encapsulates the myriad soils, aspects, altitudes and grape varieties found on this windswept, biodynamic farm. The windswept vineyard blocks are all, south facing (less sun exposure), 200-350m above sea-level and a mere 2 miles from The Atlantic. These factors combine to produce low yields, balanced grapes and wines with a true sense of place. Production is a miserly 4 tons per hectare. Grapes are hand-harvested and brought to the cellar by horses for hand-sorting. Extracting juice from the grapes is achieved through pressing the whole bunches. This is the most delicate way to extract the juice. After a settling period of 24 hours, a large proportion of the juice was destined for co-fermentation. That is to say, we determined a blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Chenin Blanc prior to fermentation and transferred the majority into old 600 litre barrels, with the balance going into stainless steel tanks. Ultimately, this allowed for a better integrated and more complete end product. After a very long, natural yeast fermentation of seven months, the wine was left on the primary lees for a further four months. This helped to add more complexity and weight to the palate. The wine was then racked to fermentation tank and the final blend was made up, with the addition of further Sauvignon Blanc and Chenin Blanc. “The wine was then bottled in January 2014. We make the wine as naturally as possible, with no additions of acids or enzymes allowed. Tasting notes The Sauvignon Blanc aromas are prominent on the nose, with beautiful lime and prickly pear notes. Intense flavours, with great balance. A tight mineral core and creamy mid palate from the Chenin Blanc allows for great complexity and a persistent finish. The Sauvignon Blanc lends lovely, fresh acidity to the wine. Food match Try with Sashimi of Tuna, smoked potato gnocchi or red snapper. Awards 2013 Vintage Sommelier Wine Awards 2017 Bronze ** VEGAN WINE **

    VERDEJO “Bodegas Menade” (Spain)

    Production The Verdejo grapes are selected from parcels of vines, 20-25 years old, grown in pebbly, clay and chalky soils at between 700 and 800m altitude. Harvesting takes place by 3 different processes: part green daytime harvest by hand, part mechanised and part night-time harvest. Each parcel is vinified separately using wild yeasts in stainless steel. Fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature of 18-22ºC, and the wine remains on lees for a short period. Tasting notes Fresh stone fruit aromas with notes of fennel and thyme. The palate is ripe and texural with white peach and herbal characters, balanced by crisp acidity and minerality.
