Gusbourne Pinot Noir ‘Boot Hill’ 2016, Ashford England£32.50 More info & buy This Pinot Noir is produced in tiny parcel using fruit exclusively from Gusbourne's Boot Hill vineyard. The notion that English vineyards cannot produce quality still wine should be firmly banished upon tasting this wine. The nose, thanks to maturation in French oak, boasts a pretty array of cranberry and raspberry with a delicate earthy note. The palate, whilst being nimble, offers layers of earthy red fruit with nicely judged spice and perfectly balanced acidity. Bravo to the team at Gusbourne, this is one of England's finest still wines!
Rare, Unusual and Award Winning Case
£129.70More info & buy This case contains two limited edition wines from Apaltagua; a single vineyard Pinot Noir from the cool San Antonio Valley, and Carignan blend from 100 year old vines from the sun soaked Maule valley. Each of these wines are hand numbered, and total production doesn't exceed 6,000 bottles - which in wine terms is absolutely minute! Sticking with the limited edition theme, we can proudly introduce the rare Rioja Vega Tempranillo Bianco - this is a genetic mutation of the red skinned Tempranillo that offers an incredible nose of almond, toast, vanilla, cashew and buttery pears. There's also representation from the vastly underappreciated Timorasso grape, which offers a wonderful weighty palate with waxy stone fruit, lime zest and hazelnut, from Piedmont in Italy. Moving on to South Africa, we have the limited edition Integer Cabernet Sauvignon, of which only 6 barrels of this juicy, intense and smoky Cabernet are produced annually. It makes sense to finish with something classical, so conclude a fantastic day with a glass of Chateau d'Agassac 2000 - a wonderfully developed claret that boasts earthy cassis, cedar, truffles and forest floor. The a palate is elegant and the tannins fully resolved. for more detail please see the links below Apaltagua Colección Limited Edition Carignan 2015, Maule Valley, Chile Apaltagua Colección Limited Edition Pinot Noir 2013, San Antonio, Chile Rioja Vega Tempranillo Blanco 2015, D.O.
