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.

Rimapere 2016, Marlborough, New Zealand£21.95 More info & buy Rimapere 2016 delivers pronounced aromatics of ripe lemon, passion fruit, grapefruit, pine needles and steely minerality. The palate despite being vibrant and fresh, has a rich almost weighty texture. There is wonderful purity and complexity and a decent finish with crisp floral notes. Rimapere is a very defined Sauvignon with tremendous concentration - its a million miles from those dilute New Zealand Sauvignon's that flood the shelves of UK supermarkets. The weight and intensity of Rimpere is likely to dominate delicate seafood dishes, so be sure to pair with a dish that has a little more intensity of flavour.
Le Merle Blanc de Chateau Clarke 2016, A.C. Bordeaux£22.00 More info & buy The 2016 vintage marks a big step in quality for Le Merle Blanc, this vintage, apart from being fantastic is one of the first vintages to include Sauvignon Gris in the blend - which adds a rich texture to the palate. An explosion of aromas jump from the glass to reveal freshly squeezed grapefruit, white flowers and citrus peel. The palate has wonderful purity, zippy acidity, and a lovely clean yet soft mouth feel. The finish boasts plenty of citrus fruit and classic stony minerality. A little over 1,000 cases of this wonderful wine are produced annually.
