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.

Rioja Vega Tempranillo Blanco 2015, D.O. Rioja£15.95 More info & buy Only 6,850 bottles of this limited edition wine were produced in 2015. This vintage has been fermented in French oak barrels which imparts a gorgeously toasty profile to the wine. On the nose, after a few minutes in the glass, you can expect to enjoy the aromas of roasted almonds, ripe peach, cashew, toast, and citrus infused vanilla. The palate, whilst possessing rich stone fruit and toasty spice, lends vibrant acidity which enables a sense of freshness. This wine is perfectly balanced, complex and almost too easy to drink.
