Wines to splurge on…

Rosé 

The luxurious 2019 Languedoc Cabrières Rosé Clos du Temple is extremely rare to find due to its limited production. The certified organic and biodynamic grapes are handpicked and aged in French oak. There is a beautiful blend of Grenache, Cinsault, Syrah, Mourvèdre and Viognier offers a floral notion to the nose with a hint of cedar and strawberries. It is a full-bodied wine on the palate with plenty of richness and silky texture. 

White

The Gaia e Rey, Angelo Gaja 2019 from Tuscany is a powerful yet delicate vintage that takes time to aerate. The wine offers a bouquet of fresh citrus, toasted almond and spice. Only 16,000 bottles were produced appreciated by the finest palates worldwide. 

Red

Richebourg Grand Cru, Domaine de la Romanée Conti 2012 were picked at the end of September and was one of the lowest yields in this vintage. The wine opens up to be more earth than air. It is a bouquet of blackberry pastille balanced by wilted violets and a touch of spiced warmth. Leaving it to unwind for 10 minutes, more complexities are achieved. There are hints of Provencal herbs and even fennel. The palate is medium-bodied and ends with a brightness on the tip of the tongue. Domaine de la Romanée Conti is the most prestigious domain in Burgundy and only 634 cases produced. 

Wines that are price-quality…

Rosé

The Chateau Minuty Cuvee 281 Rosé 2020 is a blend of 90% Greanche, 7% Cinsault and 3% Syrah. It is a medium-bodied wine on the palate with scents of ripe melon, fraises des bois and a touch of creaminess to its texture. The blue colour that adorns the bottle was named the colour trend of 2020 by the Pantone Color Institute. The 281 refers to this Pantone Blue. 

White

The Freestone Chardonnay, Joseph Phelps from 2018 has aged 13 months in 41% new French Oak which opens to notes of saline, crushed nuts, lemon peel and quince. The wine is medium-bodied on the palate with a silky and citrusy opening. This wine can be aged for a few years to gain more character. 2,240 cases produced of this fine wine. 

Red

The 2018 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Quartz, Le Clos du Caillou portrays a characteristic blend of fruits with 85% Grenache and 15% Syrah offering delicious aromas of cherries and raspberries. It is full-bodied yet refined, and its remarkable length makes this wine a very silky and elegant wine to drink. 

Wines to drink every day…

White

The 2020 Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand is a delightful wine balanced with a smooth texture and acidity. The wine has a wide spectrum ranging from elderflowers and nettles with a subtle flavour of passion fruit. This wine is not something to leave to age, it is best to drink now!

Rosé 

Whispering Angel Château d'Esclans Rosé - Côtes de Provence 2020 is an iconic vineyard that produces refreshing wines. It is a medium-bodied that effortlessly glides on the palate.
