Rimapere Sauvignon Blanc 2017, six bottle case.
Rimapere is the result of a recent venture from Baron Edmond de Rothschild and Mr Peabody of Craggy Range. The estate was acquired in 2012 and is situated in Rapaura within the district of Marlborough, New Zealand. The estate produces two classically styled Marlborough wines; a hugely aromatic Sauvignon Blanc and a fruit driven Pinot Noir.
ONLY £9.99 a bottle while stocks last.
Rimapere delivers pronounced aromatics of sage, conifer, 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 long intense finish. 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 Rimapere is likely to dominate delicate seafood dishes, so be sure to pair with a dish that has a little more intensity of flavour. Drink through 2020

Waddesdon Pauillac 2015, by Chateau Mouton A.C. Pauillac
£32.50More info & buy After an hour in a decanter our Waddesdon Pauillac awakens from its slumber to reveal a nose of cassis, charred vanilla, cedar, black cherry and cedar. There's evidence of the ripeness this vintage possesses with a plump fruit-forward entry to the palate which is tapered by fine tannins and well balanced acidity. It's clearly Pauillac and true to the 'house' style - yet it's accessible and attractive now and doesn't require a decade patiently waiting in the cellar. Decant for an hour and enjoy this Pauillac with a roast beef.
