A tight, mineral wine with classic Hamilton Russell Vineyards length and complexity. Prominent pear and lime fruit aromas and flavours are brought beautifully into focus by a tight line of bright natural acid and a long, dry minerality. An elegant, yet textured and intense wine with a strong personality of both place and vintage.
From Boekenhoutskloof Winery in Franschhoek, South Africa, we bring you the new vintage of Chocolate Block. This shipment is expected to sell out, and quickly, so don't "think about it".... The nose is a compote of dark fruit with an abundance of perfume and savoury whiffs of cured meat, black olives and cigar box.
A pleasing balance between weight and freshness. Good tension and restrained fruit, promising characteristics in a wine during this sunny vintage. Perfect with shellfish and molluscs, seafood risotto, grilled or pan-fried fish, veal cutlets with creamy sauces, goat's cheeses and hard cow's milk cheeses.
Bollinger Special Cuvée Non Vintage is the purest expression of Bollinger's house style. Its biscuity nose is endowed with hints of white fruit and the rich, full-bodied palate is perfectly balanced by fresh acidity and a soft, delicate mousse. A stylish Champagne that is ideal to drink now or in the next two or three year.
The new ‘E’ Etna Bianco is 100% Carricante, grown on the alluvial and clayey lava of Mount Etna’s slopes. Paolini lease vineyards off a local grower, and are the only cooperative winery to produce wine on the volcano. All the work is supervised by the Paolini team, and the wine (just like the Etna Rosso) is vinified on Etna.
