Great value Cabernet Sauvignon from Mouton Rothschild produced since 1995, from grapes sourced from the Languedoc then matured in their Saint-Laurent-Medoc winery. Ripe and powerful sweet pepper and blackcurrant flavours over a well-integrated and elegant tannic structure.
Great value Pinot Noir from Mouton Rothschild which they have been making since 1995, sourced from the Languedoc then matured in their Saint-Laurent-Medoc winery. Light and juicy, with delicious red fruits and very soft tannin, try serving lighly chilled.
Great value Viognier from Mouton Rothschild which they have been making since 1995, sourced from the Languedoc then matured in their Saint-Laurent-Medoc Winery. Intense and full of peachy, floral, tropical flavours this wine shows Viognier off in fine style.
Named for the museum in Franschhoek which chronicles the history of the early Huguenot settlers, who introduced the first wines to South Africa's Western Cape in the 17th century. 12 months ageing in oak casks before bottling adds complexity and a dusting of vanilla to the soft red cherry and plum flavours.
Superb, intense wine from Sicily that over-delivers. Full of ripe, black cherries, and a typical lifted perfume. Comes complete with the velvety texture and smoothness that creates mass appeal. A hidden gem.
Excellent value Pinot Noir. Produced from grapes grown on a plot of chalky soil in the heart of the Languedoc. Soft, easy going red fruit and spice dominate, with lush, smooth tannin and a delicately lingering finish.
Made with specially selected parcels of fruit taken from various estate-owned vineyards in New Zealand's Hawkes Bay region, with six months of oak ageing providing added depth and complexity. Lovely easy-drinking wine with great fruit character.
Esk Valley has been New Zealand's pioneer of this traditional Portuguese variety, producing a dry-style Verdelho from their Hawke's Bay vineyards since 2002. Packed with peachy tropical fruit and bright citrus. Well worth trying out.
This Marlborough producer makes exceptionally textural wines of great character, on their biodynamically tended estate. Founded by Michael Seresin in the early 1990s, this property has just celebrated its 20th vintage and continues to go from strength to strength.
