2 Bottles of each:
Cava, Brut, Rondel, Spain
Predominantly Parellada together with Macabeo and Xarel.lo. Bottle aged for a minimum of nine months before release. Blended to show plenty of fruit on the palate making it an excellent everyday fizz.
Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough, Knights Point, New Zealand
Intense aromas of grapefruit and tomato leaf with lively passion fruit and floral notes, adding allure and complexity. This wine delivers delicious citrus and stone fruit flavours with a crisp, refreshing finish that is synonymous with Marlborough.
Les Boules Rouge Vin de France is a blend of southern French grapes, a delicious blackcurrant-scented joie de vivre wine. It shows blackberry and bramble flavours, with a hint of raspberry; a spicy, perfumed, peppery blend that will pair well with a variety of foods.
Casttillo de Eneriz, Reserva, Navarra, Spain
Vic has a nose for wine, and given his Rioja estate already straddles the border of Rioja and Navarra, he thought adding a very good Navarra estate would be exciting. 18 months in barrel and a full 6 years in bottle make this a real cracker! Rioja without the name and price tag, made by a master of Rioja! This wine balances oaky character with fruitiness and hints of spice with a finish as lengthy as you would expect from a classic reserva.
Carmenere, Luis Felipe Edwards, Chile
Luis Felipe Edwards Lot 24 Carmenere red wine is juicy, ripe, dark plum, spice and hedgerow fruit. It is a great introduction to premium Carmenere, with the Rapel Valley being one of the best regions for this particular variety.
Pinot Noir, Reserva, Cono Sur, Chile
This is a very expressive, friendly and voluptuous Pinot Noir from the San Antonio Valley, which has been distinguished for its outstanding aromatic qualities.
