Nice ruby color. Expressive nose, combining red fruit aromas (raspberry, blackberry) and burnt notes. After a frank and silky attack, mouth appears balanced. Fine tannins, a smooth oak and a fruity aromatic return give much elegance to this bottle. An elegant finish completes the charm of the Château de Saint- Pey 2015.Chateau de Saint-Pey

Castello di Fonterutoli
There’s cedar and tobacco here, but it’s backed up by lovely, fresh, wild strawberries, raspberry cheesecake and redcurrants. Full body, polished tannins and beautifully linear acidity. Finishes long and elegantly.
On release, it is a lemon-straw. There are plentiful aromas and flavours that are reminiscent of citrus fruits, honeydew melon, pawpaw and tropical spices. It expands on the palate to become broad shouldered, mouth filling and rich but retains a spine of sinuous acidity and minerality that help draw out a lingering hint of freshly crushed root ginger. It can be expected to develop a range of other fascinating nuances with careful cellaring.Pegasus Bay Winery

A white wine that exceeds all expectations with its complexity and structure, it combines the quality of selected grapes grown on a traditional singe vineyard, which gives its name to the wine and of a balanced ageing in new French oak barrels for a year and a half.

The wine is made from the traditional Kisi grape grown in the villages of Akhmeta district. Whole bunches are fermented in underground qvevri, lending the wine it’s amber colour, distinctive flavour and mildly tannic structure.
Kisi is a native Georgian grape with sweet spice notes and great acidity, perfect for maintaining freshness. Fermentation in Qvevries adds great complexity and texture.
A limited harvest of 5-7 tons per hectare from this excellent site for Saperavi, Kisiskhevi. Whole bunches are hand selected before being placed into underground qvevri, where fermentation takes place for 7-9 days with selected yeasts - being underground, the qvevri maintains the perfect temeperature at all times. Due to the size of the qvevri, production is limited to 6500 bottles only. Once fermentation is complete, the grape skins are removed and the wine spends further time maturing in the qvevri before bottling.
Kisiskhevi is a superb terroir within the wider Kakheti region, particularly for Saperavi. The best grapes are selected for fermentation in Qvevri, resulting in a deep coloured and structured wine that is still remarkably approachable due to its vibrant primary fruit and roasted nut aromas.
This rich and complex wine emphasises the smoky notes and dark fruits that lead you in it as soon as you open the bottle. The moderate acidity and well inegrated tannins shows a freshness that belies its age with real elegance.Caves Sao Joao
The flagship of the estate. It is made of mainly Tempranillo, with Garnacha, Graciano, Viura and Malvasía, coming from vines that are between 10 and 90+ years old. It is aged for 17 months in barrel and released after a minimum of three years in the cellar.
The nose is very pronounced, displaying typical Rioja aromas of ripe strawberries, dark plums, cream, vanilla and hints of sweet liquorice. On the palate it is elegant, with well-integrated alcohol, fine-grained tannins and good flavour concentration.
A classic dry sparkling wine with elegance and poise. The colour is pale straw with a steady stream of minute bubbles. It has enticing aromas of freshly baked brioche, honeyed oats, biscuit and nougat. On the palate it has a creamy mousse with ripe quince, baked apple and a hint of pear frangipane. There is a seamless integration of yeasty complexity plus balance and freshness. The finish is crisp, dry and very moreish.
Something very different to the mass produced Sekt which makes up the bulk of production. Instead of the cheap and cheerful, Liebfraumilch in a SodaStream®, tank method fizz you see at the bottom end of the market this is something sophisticated, complex and deeply delicious.
This is methode traditionelle Rheingau Riesling, barrel fermented and with three years on the lees, making it a pretty rare beast. It's a wine with fantastic depth of flavour. It has all the elegance and complexity you would expect from big-name Champagnes, but the use of Riesling rather than the traditional French varities has left it with a character all of its ownBibo Runge

Concentrated and well-balanced, this wine offers an authentic and fleshy Sauvignon Blanc, showing an ageing with a surprising subtlety.
The delicate tropical fruit aromas (a proof of ripe Sauvignon grapes) and clean mineral and fruity palate testify to Le MD's pedigree as an exceptional wine from one of the finest slopes in the Sancerre appellation.Domaine Bourgeois
An extraordinary barrel-fermented wine from ancient, pre-phylloxera vines.
Intense aromatics of ripe melon and pears balanced by leesy, yeasty notes.
