50% Chardonnay, 50% Pinot Noir. This exceptionally priced Burgundian sparkler offers a terrific opportunity to try a relatively rare commodity in our market. This Gold Medal-winning bubbly (Concours des Vins Burgondia) has suggestions of toasted bread and nuts on both the nose and palate, with tangy citrus and a hint of tea. Well-balanced, crisp and refreshing.
Fresh and vibrant in the glass, it impresses for its energy and elegance. Bright lemon, grapefruit, white flower and crushed rock notes race across the palate. At the same time, there is plenty of texture and richness. This terrific wine will delight Chablis fans for a fraction of the price.
100% Malbec. Dark red colour. A very fruity nose, both powerful and elegant, it is perfectly round and soft on the palate with great fruit intensity. Enjoy this wine by itself, or pair with cheese, pizzas, grilled meat or pastas.
45% Grenache, 40% Syrah and 15% Mourvèdre.
Delicious ripe fruits on the nose accent the full-bodied mouth. The supple tannins provides a quintessential “GSM” character. A delicious pick for any time of the year!
Very aromatic with notes of ripe black and red fruits. The palate opens with fruit and persists onwards to concentrated red fruit flavours, well-balanced oak notes and a nice pronounced acidity. The fresh yet fine tannins take over at the finish, where flavours of spice and liquorice dominate.
Clear and bright pink with enticing floral aromas backed by notes of ripe plums, licorice and fresh strawberry. Fresh and fruity on the palate with intense flavors of red berries. Balanced and refreshing with a fine mousse.
This terrific Tuscan value comes from carefully selected grapes 400 metres above sea level on top of a limestone ridge adjacent to the ancient village of Montepulciano. The grapes are hand harvested and after a traditional vinification it spends 2 years in oak.
Aromatic, expressive and round, this vintage offers loads of Sangiovese character in a succulent, mid-weight style that will find plenty of admirers. The balance of the texture and freshness makes for a compelling Chianti to drink now and over the next few years. All and all, a terrific Tuscan value!
Arinto, Fernão Pires & Moscatel.
From Casa Santos Lima comes this incredibly aromatic white highlighting citric notes, and which the palate shows once again. It is a vivid wine revealing freshness and a very good acidity.
Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Castelão & Touriga Nacional
A great value red by Casa Santos Lima. With an intense aroma, this wine presents red ripe fruits and cinnamon notes. Well balanced and with smooth tannins, in the mouth it shows a light and long persistency. With wooden notes, it has a complex finish.
Vibrant aromas of red fruits and strawberries and just a smidge of residual sugar. Extremely lively, crisp and fresh. It’s a light pick to pair with salads, seafood, spicy oriental food and goat cheese.
From the single vineyard ‘La Carte’ in the village of Lugny. A beautifully crafted white Burgundy, rich and creamy, with floral and honey flavours, ending with mineral and grapefruit notes. Beautifully balanced, a wonderful expression of the limestone soils. A delight to drink.
