Rare, Unusual and Award Winning Case

If you want something a bit vanilla, then move along folks!

Tasting notes

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.
